New Anime Series: Blaz Blue Alter Memory

First Episode(s) Review for: Blaz Blue Alter Memory

Based of the computer game series BlazBlue, a lone fighter is being slowly overtaking by the great power he possesses, all the while being hunted by those who wish that power for them selves.


Very detailed backgrounds with slightly flat cell characters over the top, perhaps this is done to to make the battle scenes easier to draw as they are very very fast and involved.

Plot Potential:

I’m assuming you must have played the game to know what the hell is going (so much so that I went to see if this was the first series or a continuation), but it has settled down into the standard “haunted anti hero in a timeless cycle of battles” theme, I reckon by the 3rd episode it will become a background Anime, but it is fun and the fight scenes are very well done.


Not up to the visuals

Reminds me of:

A light hearted Devil May Cry


A good blood stirring series, Makes me want to go play the computer game…. Oh sod…. I HAVE this computer game, got it at an convention because I wondered what everyone was getting so excited about, so when today’s work is finished I will go and give it another try
