BlazBlue Alter Memory

Quote from: Anime News Network
Arc System Works presented the story, cast, and staff for BlazBlue Alter Memory, the upcoming anime of its fighting game franchise, at its Arc System Works Festival event in Yokohama on Sunday.

The story is set in December of 2199, when the streets are full of anticipation for the end of the year and the start of the new one. Amid the celebrations, word spreads that Ragna the Bloodedge, an SS-class rebel with the highest ever bounty on his head, has appeared in the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi. The apparent aim of Ragna or the "Grim Reaper" is the destruction of the system controlling the world. To collect the bounty, a motley array of unrivaled fighters converge on Kagutsuchi.

The games' cast members reprise their roles in the anime:

  • Tomokazu Sugita as Ragna the Bloodedge
  • Kanako Kondou as Noel Vermillion
  • Tetsuya Kakihara as Jin Kisaragi
  • Kana Ueda as Rachel Alucard
  • Yūichi Nakamura as Hazama
  • Chiwa Saito as Taokaka
  • Chiaki Takahashi as Litchi Faye-Ling
  • Kenji Nomura as Iron Tager
  • Asami Imai as Tsubaki Yayoi
  • Chie Matsuura as Kokonoe
  • Tomomi Isomura as Makoto Nanaya

The games' Toshimichi Mori is supervising the project, and Hideki Tachibana (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira) is directing the anime at teamKG and Hoods Entertainment. Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) is collaborating on the direction. Deko Akao (Arakawa Under the Bridge, Mysterious Girlfriend X) is overseeing the series scripts being co-written by Tatsuya Takahashi (The IDOLM@STER, Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~). Tomoyuki Shitaya (Bakuman., Hatsukoi Limited, Kiss×sis) is serving as both character designer and chief animation director. The rest of the staff includes:

  • Art Director: Shigemi Ikeda (Atelier Musa)
  • Color Key: Haruko Nobori (Hiwa)
  • Director of Photography: Koujirou Hayashi (Graphinica)
  • Editor: Masato Yoshitake (Graphinica)
  • Sound Director: Masaki Tsuchiya
  • Sound Production: Studio Mausu
  • Music Production: Lantis

The anime will premiere this fall.

Yay.
Although I've mentioned this news in the "Thinking" thread, it's good you've made a thread.

I was actually planning on making a post about it when I saw it on Siliconera yesterday. Although I wasn't sure if I should hunt down the BlazBlue thread and post the news there. Well this is anime, so this fits pretty well.

Just in case I'm going to say this:

It will be [parasitic bomb] and filled with QUALITY.

I really want this to be good, but no way in hell will they make it so.
Nuh-uh.
Nada.

They should've went the easy way and had BONES animate it.

As for the show itself, I'm still holding some hope. Dude who worked on FMA (didn't state which one) and Gundam 00 is helping with direction, so... could be good.

There's been a trailer out for a little while now:

Video game adaptations are usually terrible.
