Trails of Cold Steel - Northern War

The first trailer for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel – Northern War anime is out, and you can watch it above. And thanks to Gematsu for the translation of the synopsis, which you can read in part below.

Courtesy Gematsu:

Lavi is a girl born and raised in North Ambria State, the poorest region in the northwestern part of Zemuria.

To protect her hometown, and to prove she is different from her grandfather Vlad—who was once hailed as a hero, but betrayed North Ambria—she volunteers to serve in the renowned Northern Jaegers, the largest jaeger corps in the continent.

Devoted to her duties to the point that she repeatedly breaches discipline, Lavi is grouped into a platoon with Marty, Iseria, and Talion and ordered to undertake a reckless undercover mission into the Erebonian Empire.

Trails of Cold Steel – Northern War is set to air in 2023. The anime is a co-production of Falcom and Tatsunoko Production.
