BlazBlue Anime to Air This Coming Fall

Just last week it was announced that Arc System Works’ wonderful fighter BlazBlue is getting an anime adaptation entitled Alter Memory. Despite the games practically being interactive anime on their own, this television series will adapt Calamity Trigger’s storyline and feature all the over-the-top goodness we experienced when playing through that first title’s single player mode.

According to sources, the series will air this Fall in Japan, and be manned by a couple big wigs in the industry. Famed writer Hideiki Tachibana and Seiji Mizushima of Fullmetal Alchemist have signed on as the show’s directors, while Toshimichi Mori from the actual games will be serving as project supervisor. No trailer has been released yet, but be on the lookout for one as we get closer to Fall.
