The game "BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger" will get an anime adaptation, according to the obi strip bundled with the latest volume of the light novel "BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger vol.2 of 2" that is based on the game. No other information is available for the moment. The game was first released as an arcade game in November 2008 and it was later released on PlayStation3 and Xbox 360 platform.

BlazBlue: Alter Memory on MAL
Modified by Naruleach, May 19, 2013 11:03 AM
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

The only thing I know about BlazBlue is that it's a fighting game.

At least it's sure to be full of entertaining fight scenes.

Haven't played the game yet but definitely interested. Oh and this manga:
http://myanimelist.net/manga/27085/BlazBlue_Chimelical_Complex

From another article I've found...it said something along the line of

According to Hachima, fans who were able to obtain a copy of the BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger’s second volume of the light novel series, which was released today, spotted the following message on the cover of the book:

“The giant project that will be dying the world in ‘Blue’ has commenced” and “Anime adaptation confirmed!”

Should be interesting to see how the original storyline pans out. Seems more viable to be a short OVA.

I think if they just do Ragna's story, they could probably rush it and jam it in a single OVA, but I would prefer if they did everyones.... Baccano style.

I'm more curious on what studio will be handling this. From what I've known, video game adaptations are a bit hard to pull off these days.

Sadly, that's the 3rd game, which you won't be seeing several of those characters and Noel in that uniform assuming they only animated CT.

I believe Gonzo animated the opening for the first and second game? Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Here's CT's OP.

Hopefully Production IG, considering that they did Extend's OP.

I wonder how they will adapt the story and if they will take everyone's POV like in the game story mode somehow
However, getting to watch my main fighter Noel animated is just everything I could ever ask for, so this news are more than welcome for me.

Please let this be by production IG and let it go baccano style in stories. The games really were not long at all so this should probably be a 12 ep series. i just hope it does well so the vastly superior continuum shift can get animated, there are some fights in that, that would be so epic in anime form

Here's a taste of what to expect if they stick with the same studio. The cinematic spans just the first 5 minutes.

Personally, I was hoping that they'd animate the Ikaruga Civil War.

Okay, so...this will either be totally awesome and crazy, or bogged down by too much faithfulness to the game's storyline. I like the story mode, I bought the second game because of that and bothered to get 100% completion and the true endings. But there is WAY too much going on to fit into a movie or a shorter series well. There are ways to adapt, though. Ragna, Noel and Jin are the most important of the various protagonists, Focus on them and you've got plenty to go on for something good or even great.

I beg to differ, blazblue especially calamity trigger which this is based off of are really short games. They could easily do 1 to 2 episodes per character then the true end with them shifting perspectives each ep and maybe skipping tao cause i mean.....ok would anyone really miss tao's story being animated? The first ep could be dedicated to ranga's attack on the librarium and the next being focused on the rest of his story, maybe noel and jin would get 2 episodes as well but everyone else can have their story completed in 1 ep and you could just skip arakune and tao's story as arakune's just ties into litchi's and taos is just comedy. Then give a couple episodes for the true end and bam you can have a series done in about 13 episodes

Didn't even play enough to merit "suck hard". 2 story modes were all it took for me to return Continuum shift.

oh man where to start

1: why the fuck were you playing continuum shift first
2: who gives up on a fighting game after only trying 2 characters,
3: if you only played 2 stories then you DID suck at the game, you wouldnt of had any time to learn the combo's or play styles so you probably just button mashed or used single attacks until you eventually beat characters. Combined with the fact that you only played 2 characters without trying any game modes, so you basically did the equivalent to dropping a anime 10 minutes into the first episode

You cant say the games are utter crap cause you only played 1 and even that 1 you played you cant say its crap cause you didnt even try 1/10th of its features

Implying I didn't play Calamity.
Finished story too.
Just because I didn't bother with Continuum, doesn't mean I didn't play Calamity.
So everything you said is pretty much for naught.
And you can't "Suck hard" when you play on the easiest level, unless you constantly die even with button mashing.

But then again. I also don't like Guilty Gear.
/shrugs. Done here. Don't feel like arguing needlessly at 12:30am.

Then your story doesnt match up. You say you didnt play enough to warrant a suck and only played 2 stages of continuum to say it sucks, now your saying you beat the entire first game which means you have played enough to warrant a "I suck at the game so its the game's fault"

And i find it hard to believe someone would play through a entire game thinking its utter crap then go out and buy the sequel already knowing youll hate it
