After much anticipation the BlazBlue fans are finally receiving an anime adaptation to their favorite fighting game franchise.

For those who are unaware of what BlazBlue is, it is a 2D fighting game and is renowned for having an excellent story.

Discuss your thoughts and ideas for the recently teased BlazBlue anime!

I can only imagine how hilarious it would be to have to see an animated version of Rachel's gag reel in BlazBlue Continuum Shift. LOL

It will be interesting how they approach it since Blazblue didn't have much of a linear story line, it's all separated branches. I look forward to seeing the almighty god king president lord jesus Hazama in an Anime and I predict that perhaps Blazblue will become the next big anime and beat down the past few years of bad anime because Blazblue may not have the best plot, it does have some well done mythology and with that world, you can set yourself up for great stories. Also, the characters kick ass as well. This will also probably help boost sales for Chrono Phantasma since Blazblue is criminally underrated, it will give great publicity. Still, this anime will probably include Chrono Phantasma since that has a release date and the anime doesn't yet.

There is always a chance that an anime based off a game can fail, Persona 4 the animation wasn't really that popular, but they are two different games since the plot development, feel, and enviornment were better established in the game rather than the anime. Blazblue is the opposite since most of it is dialogue with stills, so I HOPE this show will be a big success, because lord knows, ever since the past few years, we need a great anime right now.

I hope they don't break it.

And those of us who are fans of Guilty Gear once again feel shafted.

This ought to make the Blaz Blue-ers happy, though. But will the animators be able to make any sense of it?

I am actually super super excited for this. But of course, as with any game adaptation, there's a chance it will be handled poorly. :L I'm crossing my fingers, though.

well, it doesn't really branch much, it's more or less multiple timelines lived throughout all the branches of the first one. there's really only one "true".. or I guess "final" would be a better word for it.. story for the game. I do imagine they would probably include some side things from the different character stories while sticking mostly to the "true" ending of the first game.

or they could just troll us really bad and turn it into a series long version of the "endless eight"

I haven't played the game to this yet but hopefully will pull off a good anime adaptation. More importantly though is what studio will take charge to handle this adaptation. My bet is on Production IG to pull it off.

The anime is now out and there's a discussion for it. Closing this older announcement/anticipation thread to avoid confusion.
