Get ready for more high-flying action, because Sentai Filmworks has announced the license of The Magnificent Kotobuki anime film. Featuring a returning cast and staff, including director Tsutomu Mizushima and screenwriter Michiko Yokote, the compilation movie opened in Japanese theaters last September, and Sentai will release it on home video this summer.

Sayumi Suzushiro stars as Kylie in the film alongside Eri Yukimura as Emma, Sayaka Nakaya as Kate, Asami Seto as Reona, Hibiku Yamamura as Zara, and Miyu Tomita as Chika. Here’s how Sentai describes the story:

In a desolate desert world, air pirates rule the skies. They prey on aerial commerce and hold remote towns for ransom, but the talented pilots of Team KOTOBUKI use their impressive aerial instincts and hard-won skills to defend cities and cargo shipments from these vultures… for the right price, of course. In their existent reciprocating engine aircraft and with ice in their veins, Team KOTOBUKI will take on any enemy that comes their way in an explosive frenzy of aerial dogfights, including never-before-seen new fights unique to The Magnificent KOTOBUKI THE MOVIE.
