BlazBlue Alter Memory Anticipation and Discussion
Posted 9/28/13
They need to release some freakin PC versions of the games, that I do know. They release the first in the series and not any others. This is why I hate consoles. Even though I do own consoles.

I have Calamity Trigger (collector's edition) and Continuum Shift for PS3, and Continuum Shift Extend for Vita. I regret not getting Extend for PS3 instead. Vita just doesn't feel right for playing a fighting game on.

Episode 1

I liked it. It was pretty obvious that it was based off of a video game from the pacing and whatnot, but no problems in this corner thus far :3

Oh man I loved the first episode! I really hope the anime does well in Japan so that we can get a second season.

I heard from somewhere that the new first episode's OST was similar to the game. I haven't played the games yet so I have no idea if it's true or not.

First episode was alright and I liked the OP song. I'm not sure about the animation style yet though as I think they're average. The fighting was okay though and oop, there's a cliffhanger already.

it's pretty much metal/speed metal with strings and choirs. I posted some songs from the first game on the first page.

I'm happy to see that people are liking this so far. I'm still hours away from being home and able to watch.

I thought the first episode was interesting enough that I'll give the second episode a shot.
I never played the game before and I doubt that really matter in a way.

If the Blazblue anime was made to create an incentive for more people to play the game, i fear the opposite may happen due to it's reception.

The animation looked like it's on a budget of 4 dollars, the classic Blazblue sense of humor is gone, the entire episode had such an empty atmosphere......Also the animation sucks

Blazblue the video game may not be the best story, but the mythology is so well developed, it makes other shows look like crap, the characters are freakin awesome and filled with personality and interest, the designs and humor were also great. I don't see why they couldn't get some decent animators. There are a few characters I dislike (Ragna, Jin, Noel, Makoto, Tsubaki, Platinum, etc.) But the characters that you love are characters you will really love (Hazama, Relius, Azrael, Bang, Arakune, etc.)

I was ready to say that this would be the best anime of 2013 because it has certain things to it that are vastly superior to Attack on titan, but that's only the video game, the animation looks like this anime may become a very dark chapter for Blazblue fans everywhere.

I also hate how they somewhat spoil one of the best things about blazblue when they imply that Hazama can intercept every single possibility in every single scenario.

Also, hazama, the ungodly holy beast of greatness to which I would kiss his feet everyday in glorious admiration for his unbelievable greatness, sucks, his face looks way too poorly designed, you can fuck up any other character's design, but don't mess with my Terumi.

And what was with the opening and ending? Most anime has clusterfucks of crazy shit going on, but the opening to Blazblue, 50% of it was people just sauntering and doing nothing, compare that to the openings that the game had for Continuum Shift, Extend, and Calamity Trigger. And that ending....Oh my god, it was just a wheel spinning the characters around.

Overall, I'd say, if you're curious about Blazblue, the video game is a million times better than the anime. If you have a PSP, I'd recommend you buy the game. This was clearly aimed for the fans of the game, but even as a fan, I felt disappointed

Could not have put it better myself. Seems like really rushed fanfare; I'm only going to keep watching because I'm such an avid fan of the games.

I have already seen one of my favorite characters so I'm happy. Now to wait patiently for the Taokaka versus Arakune fight. B- so far.

To be fair, even in the games the animated cutscenes look like crap. Not talking about the opening movies. Those are ace, but everything else? Very.....meh. Very, very meh.
