After much speculation Muv-Luv Schwarzesmarken is now on its way for a January 2016 lineup.
The official site was launched with a new visual key and announcement of the cast of the series. The story is based on the alternate world in 1983 where East Germany is the frontline against a relentless alien that is hell-bent to consume humans, the BETA.
