Synopsis

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.

Story

First off BB: Alter Memory is based off the popular fighting game series BlazBlue. The series adapts the first two games in the series Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift and crams it in a 12 episode anime! The story starts off with our main hero Ragna the Bloodegde fighting some creepy robot girl named Nu. Ragna gets stabbed by Nu and we're introduced to a gothic princess girl and her butler taking about the event that just took place and the outcome of the situtation. We then see more character that are introduced and we don't know anything about them only we can infer read more

Adaptation of video games has always been a recurring trend in today’s anime industry. Each year, new anime series makes it to the market based on previous successes of its original material. There have been some successes but also failures in terms of achieving satisfactory results of adaptations. Where does BlazBlue: Alter Memory stand at on the satisfaction scale? If I had to judge this show on an overall scale of 100, it would be at 40. This is an anime series that shows exactly how not to adapt an anime series. It’s an example that made itself look like a joke that’s not even read more

Recommendations

Very similar plots : In distant future, an Outlaw / Rebel gets chased down by the authorities and bounty hunters for being the most wanted head in history.
The main characters also look physically very similar : spiky hair, red coat, mechanical hand, black hands and shoes
Both of the anime have one guy whom unrivaled groups had been hunting for some reason. One knows why he was being captured (Blazblue) while the other does not (K). Both shows are 'epic-ly' drawn and animated. Both stories are interesting and are shounen and supernatural. Both anime has a very nice soundtrack and a choice of voice actors. And both of them can be enjoyed very well.
