Honkai Impact Ningyou Gakuen (Elf Academy) anime first details revealed
Ningyo Gakuen will be a spinoff and short anime series based on Honkai. It will feature an original story, different from the events of the main game. Ningyo Gakuen will focus on the Busou Ningyo, armed dolls who back up the Valkyries. I believe the term is usually officially localized as “Elf “.
Ningyou Gakuen will be a fun comedy series where you shouldn’t think too much about the plot and what is canon or not. You can easily tell it’ll be a comedy-focused series with its Super Deformed/chibi art style for the characters.
When is Honkai Impact Ningyo Gakuen releasing?
The anime will be published on the official Youtube channel for Honkai Impact on January 22, at 19:00 JST / 10 AM GMT / 5 AM EST.
You can check out further below the cast and the old trailer for the anime series. This trailer was released back in July 2021.
