BlazBlue Anime Series Announced

My wife loves the characters and fighting play of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. I, on the other hand, figured this fighting game would make for a good anime. Now an announcment for the BlazBlue anime was spotted on a wrap-around jacket found by 0takomu on the second volume novelization of BlazBlue Calamity Trigger.

Those stylistic character designs combined with a strange setting and plot that was more than just “Let’s beat the crap out of each other” definitely fits among today’s anime trends. We’ll see how it develops and how soon it gets distribution in English.

And with an opening cinematic like this, how could it not be an anime?
