Koei Tecmo announced that the Gust-developed magical girl JRPG Blue Reflection will receive its own anime titled Blue Reflection Ray, premiering in April. A western release was not disclosed, but we’re sure where there’s a will, there’s a way when it comes to watching anime.
Blue Reflection Ray focuses on emotions, which is similar to the video game, where characters are confronted with a life obstacle and either obsess over it or allow it to break them down slowly. The result is a range of emotions that have a negative effect on a magical realm.
Characters in the anime are Hiori Hirahara and Ruka Hinari, who will hopefully have the power to take on the form of a magical girl and help their friends. They are each different in terms of personality, so their interactions and friendship are just as meaningful as the friends they make along the way.
The publisher released the first trailer introducing the two leads and their dilemma. The trailer is rather sad in tone, much like the anime where the cast of characters burdens some weighty issues.
Hopefully, this means that we’ll see a follow up to the 2017 release, Blue Reflection, and get a sequel that implements some of the first entry feedback.
