New BLAZBLUE Anime Details Released!

A few days ago, we reported that the popular fighting video game series BlazBlue would be receiving an anime adaption, but further info was not yet available. Luckily, new details are now available, including staff, cast, plot, and other tidbits.

The anime series, which is titled BlazBlue Alter Memory, will adapt the plot of the first BlazBlue game, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, which was created by Arc System Works, and released in 2009 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. The story is set on December 2199. During the New Years celebration, a rebel named Ragna the Bloodedge appears in the high-class city of Kagutsuchi. Ragna’s goal is the destruction of a system that controls the world, so a group of strong fighters join forces to stop him.

In good news for the fans of the games, the Japanese voice cast for the anime series are the same as for the video games, and the games’ designer, Toshimichi Mori, will be supervising the series. Hideki Tachibana (Higurashi) will be directing at Hoods Entertainment. Other staff includes Seiji Mizushima, Deko Akao, Tatsuya Takahashi, and Tomoyuki Shitaya.

The anime will premier in Japan this Fall. Will you be watching?
