After a long wait, the first PV video for this anime has finally been officially released.
Yes, the Kantai Collection season 2 anime PV video has been uploaded by the Kadokawa Anime Channel on YouTube on Friday (1/4).
And as already written, this PV features entirely new characters and stories compared to previous seasons, such as Shigure, Shiratsutu, Yahagi, Yukikaze, and Hamakaze. Interestingly, this PV also features trailer video footage that was previously released in 2019 and 2020.
The anime series Kantai Collection season 2 itself is said to be presenting a different story from the first season, where the story focuses on the trio of Kanmusu characters Shigure, Yahagi, and Yukikaze.
