BlazBlue Anime Series Greenlit

It was announced on Saturday, through the second volume of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger’s Novelization, that the long-awaited BlazBlue Anime series has been Green-lit.

Calamity Trigger...Epic name, hopefully an epic anime.

Toshimichi Mori, the designer of the BlazBlue games, has been known to want and long for this Anime adaptation since 2010. Zen United, the European partner to Arc System Works who made the game, responded to this “want” by setting up and launching an official “BlazBlue Anime Series” petition to support the game’s adaptation. Clearly this was a good move because people definitely went for it and now we’ve got ourselves another fighting game Anime in the works.

Judging from the image of the news the Anime is going to be based on the first game of the series which was BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger which has debuted as an arcade game way back in 2008. I’ll make an educated assumption and say that if this gets enough of an audience and a general love for the series we may be also seeing some of the other games in the franchise get adapted.
