The official Japan PR account for the turn-based Koei Tecmo-published magical girl JRPG series, Blue Reflection, has shared celebratory artwork regarding the original game’s 5-year Japanese anniversary. The title’s Western anniversary doesn’t occur until September of this year, but It’s still wild to think that it’s been half a decade. In this new illustration, the protagonists of the first and second titles are excellently depicted by artist Mel Kishida.

Blue Reflection: Second Light follows three students, Ao Hoshizaki, Kokoro Utsubo, and Yuki Kinjou, who have just been sent to a floating academy with no way home and only their names as memories. Outside the academy, a new area appears called “Heartscape ”Since it surrounds the world they inhabit.
Here in Heartscape, the characters can find resources for survival, crafting, and battle. Further, they come across memory shards; pieces of their memory come back to them when touched.
However, this place becomes more dangerous as monsters appear. This leads the girls to transform, which resembles a magical girl animation, and they take part in real-time battles.
