Here’s how Blaze Union: Story to Reach the Future begins with animation done by Point Pictures.
See what happens next on May 27 when Blaze Union trail blazes into stores.
Nice intro, the girl next to the king in 0:47 reminds me of ratchel of blazblue lol
it’s a real shame satoko kiyuduki isn’t doing the creative design for this one (she did yggdra union, riviera & Knights in the nightmare). Dept. Heaven is my favorite game series of all time and a big part of that was because of the great artwork by satoko kiyuduki.
these designs seem a little bit more middle of the road. they may be more accesible to a large public, I suppose that’s why they chose this direction. all in all I do like them, but not as much as the previous games…
besides that I’m very excited about this release and hope it get’s localized. there’s no info on that yet right ?
I didn’t know that, but it explains why the characters in this game all look rather dull. How sad.
Maybe they’ll get Kiyuduki back for the next Dept Heaven game as this one doesn’t seem to be part of the series (despite being a prequel/spiritual successor/spin off to a game in the series).
While I’m not fond of the art change, I do look forward to another Yggdra-styled game.
So, still confused. Main character with ponytail is a boy or a girl? No, I’m serious because he/she looks pretty, is short, and wears tight shorts.
People say the character’s seiyuu is a male, so yeah…
what!? is a male?! wtf i was completely sure it was a girl O_O
Also, the screenshots from the last post showed an X-shaped union. She’s a man!
I’m a little surprised to hear that the VA is male, though. I assumed they’d go with a female VA even if the character turned out to be male.
Do you know who it is? I’d like to look him up and find out what he sounds like.
I heard it’s the guy who did Yuri in TOV. I’m not sure whether it’s actually been confirmed though… the official site is not open yet. Maybe it was a misread.
It has a mermaid! yep im sold! ^_^ !
It’s cool to see some characters from Yggdra Union, like Yggdra, and Baldus the God of war in the opening
When I saw the main character, i thought hey he looks alittle bit like kenshin. But when i saw that guy on 0:39, that one looks like saitou hajime lol. That’s just me though.
Just out of curiosity, does anyone know who’s in charge of the soundtrack? Shigeki Hayashi maybe? Not because I was gifted with the power to recognize his feeling on the music, but because he was behind both Yggdra Union and Knights in the Nightmare, though :P
And also the Baroque remake, so it’s not like he only does Dept. Heaven games. Anyway, we’ll need to wait till the official site opens for more info.
I actually like this classic-like take to the character designs, never really could settle with the designs of the Dept. Heaven-series, too disproportionate in many cases. I especially like the female blond lead, because she isn’t the typical maiden in dress and wieldning a staff, I like the tomboy-ish approach. Guess it kinda helps balance the male leads female looks.
