The upcoming Blue Archive anime revealed a new trailer starring Shirako (voiced by Yui Ogura) on Sunday. The anime’s official website describes the character as follows:Shiroko is a student at Abydos High School and the sports-loving leader of the Abydos Task Force. She doesn’t speak much and her facial expression rarely changes, giving the impression that she is cold, however, she cares about Abydos High more than anyone else. She will use any means to restore the school and sometimes proposes crazy ideas.
Yostar Pictures (Arknights: Perish in Frost) and Candy Box (which supported two episodes of Arknights: Prelude to Dawn) are jointly animating the series under the direction of Daigo Yamagishi (Show By Rock!! Stars! !). Shunji Maki (Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion Z) is appointed as assistant director while Hiromitsu Hagiwara (Azur Lane: Slow Ahead!) is animation director and character designer. Hiroshi Onogi (Shangri-La) is in charge of compiling the series along with Yamagishi. In addition, screenshots of Yoshino, Serika, Nonomi and Ayane were also released.
Blue Archive is a role-playing mobile gacha game developed by Yostar Japan and Korean game studio Nexon, a subsidiary of Nexon Games (formerly known as NAT Games). It was initially released in Japan on February 4, 2021, while Nexon published the global version on November 8, 2021. The game is free to play with optional in-app purchases. The anime television adaptation was announced in a special chapter commemorating the game’s 2nd anniversary.
Blue Archive’s story takes place in Kivotos, an academy city formed by the merger of thousands of academies. The game’s players take on the role of a teacher who guides students in the Federal Investigation Club, also known as Schale. As the city’s newest club, they receive a request from the General Student Council to assist them in keeping the city of Kivotos out of danger.
