BlazBlue Alter Memory

Prior to the events of BlazBlue, humanity was on the verge of extinction from a creature called the "Black Beast." The world was saved by six heroes who wielded magic. They helped humanity create "Armagus", a fusion of magic and science, to defeat the Black Beast. This event would be later known as the First War of Magic. After the war, the Novus Orbis Librarium (the Library or NOL for short) was created to govern the world with the use of Ars Magus. A great deal of dissent was caused by the Library, partly due to Armagus' use in nearly every facet of society, and the widening socioeconomic gap between those who could and couldn't use Armagus. This dissent would eventually form years later into the Second War of Magic or also known as the Ikaruga Civil War, when the city of Ikaruga openly rebelled against the NOL. Upon winning the war, the NOL imposed a harsher rule on the world, punishing any rebellion against the NOL with death. In December A.D. 2199, several years after the Second War of Magic, a branch of the NOL was utterly destroyed by an SS-class rebel named "Ragna" also known as the "Grim Reaper", in an attempt to destroy the Librarium. The NOL, hoping to stop him, immediately announced the largest bounty ever, available to anyone who could capture him. Interestingly, Ragna possesses a powerful form of Armagus known as the "Azure Grimoire". This led the NOL, as well as the other fighters, to hunt Ragna not just for his bounty, but also his Azure Grimoire.
Love the games, waited for this day to come.

If it's only covering Calamity Trigger then it's probably only going to be a single cour long. Don't think the game has quite enough story material to go any longer than that. If they were doing Continuum Shift as well though, then things would be different.

Still, awesome to see BlazBlue get an anime series. It's story certainly deserves chance to be told in a different way and experienced by those who don't play fighting games.

Now I just wonder when it's going to be broadcast.

I really doubt it will work. The storyline is freaking confusing.

But will watch it nonetheless, absolutely love those games, they are awesome.

As elated as I am, isn't the game's story one big convoluted of convoluting convolution ?

KITA! KITA! KITA! KIIIIIITTTTAAAAAAA!!!

Been waiting forever for this! Wonder if they'd do a prequel OVA if this does well enough?

Also, animated comedy reels. The Rachel reel MUST BE DONE!

EDIT: That's if you take into account all of the repetitions and the various timelines, restarts, continuum shifts. If you stick to the true path then it's one story. They could just dabble bits of alternate paths in but keep the main line. Everything else can be made into shorts? Specially comedy reels, Teach Me Miss Litchi, Help Me Dr. Kokonoe.

Convolution isn't really a bad thing. It can work with the right writer's touch. The audience just really needs to pay attention and make an effort wrap their heads around it all.

And if this is only an adaptation of Calamity Trigger, it's still before the really confusing stuff comes in.

Even if the story is confusing, the producer himself probably has something in mind. He has been hoping himself that Blazblue would be Anime adaptation since its inception. I personally thought it would never happen but what do you know? I really, really hope that they keep the soundtrack intact within anime, too. It's much too badass to ditch it in favour of new tracks.

The wheel of fate is turning. Rebel one. Action!!

Oh my god!!!

Finally! My prayers have official been answered! I mean after the past couple of years of rumors and doubts of an anime adaptation for this series coming to pass, it finally comes to fruition.

I totally - No, I so love this series to death, and I can't wait for both this and Chrono Phastasma to come out. My mind is going a mile a minute right now! This is going to be awesome!

Daisuke Ishiwatari does compose some kickass hardcore tunes that's for sure.

There will probably still be a couple new tracks made for the anime regardless though.
