It says Music Witches in the image and Idol Witches on the site for the title and there's Band Witches as well.
Sure is triangle of words.
Glad the MC is not Fusoan for this one, not so glad they're actually gonna go for idols approach with the franchise in the future.
Still though curious to see what the rest of the idols will look like from Liberion, Suomus and Romagnia at least.

I love that they based them on folk singers. I wonder what the songs will be. I'm flashing to things like Katyusha from GuP.

Also using a Jet Striker as an amp yelling at the neuroi to listen to your song.

To be fair, it dosen't appear that the "Idol Witches" are going to be the only thing that the strike witches/world witches series will be doing; other projects are also apparently slated in the future.

What's more, given how Strike Witches showcased Minna singing her worlds version of Lili Marleen, it's likely that we will see the idol witches singing their worlds versions of 1940's era music and songs of the Second Great War, given that each of the idol witches are based after 1940's wartime singers and war idols who sang in that time period.

It would also make for some interesting world building and expansion as well as seeing what non-infantry witches would be doing in the 2nd Neruoi war. I mean in other media witches exist in other aspects of life other then in your standard rank and file Mechanized Air infantry or Mechanized Armored Infantry; we have night witches, high altitude flight witches, and in supplemental materials witches also are responsible for creating magically treated specialty witch clothing for most witch soldiers or creating magically enhanced witch combat rounds for armored infantry and Witch PR and war photography units; so seeing what it would be like for witches working as wartime singers and idols and how that would look like and would influence people would actually make for some interesting storytelling and world building.

Plus, knowing how the series tends to focus on character building, character development and the relationships of character interaction of it's cast; it's likely they will make things rather interesting and engaging.

Granted I'm not really a fan or have much interest in idol series in general since, well, it dosn't really tickle my fancy as a genre.... but I'd be lying if I said that the idol witches didn't interest me or if I didn't have decently good hopes that it would be a good watch.

Plus the concept has been hinted at for a few years now what with official art showcasing the 501st and 502nd in idol attire: so for me at least it would be interesting to see the Idol witches and their journey/story as characters.

I think you're being slightly overly hopeful into this as you mentioned considering where we're coming from with BW anime and its terrible character building, development and the relationships focus on top of animation despite same old staff making the anime. They can make things interesting but at the same time it doesn't mean they will, since anime has become this incredibly conveyor belt style product to do in the industry and tons of Kadokawa produced anime tend to be quite meh with lowest bar approach past several years. The staff can't do magic with goodwill budget alone.
Obviously money is the biggest incentive here that they're going with idol spin-off approach and not something else, since it's a market to be tapped into where they can have concerts, billions of merch and sponsor deals, let's just hope the end product is good.
