Today Avex released the first trailer of the second season of the Muv-Luv alternative anime.
While the trailer is brief, it shows bits of scenes that fans of the popular visual novel franchise will be familiar with, happening after our heroes’ graduation to full-fledged TSF pilots.
On top of the trailer, we also get to see the new key art, showcasing two of the iconic mecha that will appear in the season, the Type-94 Shiranui and the XG-70 Susanoo.
The season will debut on October 5 and will be available on Crunchyroll for the west.
