Arc System Works’ 2010 BlazBlue Birthday Cards

By Ishaan . January 7, 2011 . 12:15pm


Arc System Works are in the habit of posting birthday cards for the cast of BlazBlue throughout the year. They did it in 2009, and they did it once again in 2010 (and yes, they’re doing it in 2011 as well).


Now that the year’s over, we can take a look back at 2010’s birthday greetings. As you can see up above, Bang’s birthday happens to fall on New Year’s day. Here’s more of the cast:



Noel actually had a more appealing card in 2009 (the one on the right). For some reason, Arc Sys felt the need to moe her up further for ‘10. Isn’t she supposed to be getting older…?




Rachel’s birthday happens to fall on October 31st, which is Halloween. Her cards always tend to look interesting. What you see above is her card for 2010. Here are the cards Arc Sys drew in 2009 for comparison:













And now that 2011 has kicked off, let’s end with another New Year’s greeting and Bang card. Happy New Year to you, too, Arc Sys!

  • Indeed, happy new year Arc! And man, I love the Nu and Rachel cards <3..though Taokaka has funny ones too. :D

  • Darkrise

    Love the Rachel and Nu cards! lol at the Platinum bday card, here’s to another year of more BB goodness.

  • Where is Hakumen?

    • PurpleDoom

      Spoiler alert.

      Hakumen and Jin are the same person. Granted, they COULD do a Hakumen card on Jin’s birthday, but I guess they just don’t want to.

      • Code

        Hakumen has no need for worthless ideals such as birthdays, they are meaningless in the Boundary +m+~!

  • Jaxx-Leviathan

    Why make Bang almost nude… TWICE? o.0

    • Starmony

      Because they know we love it! >;D

    • Ren

      Why make most of the girls use revealing and completely impratical outfits? Why make Rachel sexually attack Noel in at least one preorder phonecard per game in skimpy outfits? Why make a body pillow of Jin being completely slutty?

      They live for the fanservice, and if there are people who would want a sexy Arakune fanservice, there sure should be people who want Bang for fanservice.

      • vadde939

        So true. It’s always good to see some equality in the fanservice.

  • ForeverFidelis

    I’ve been putting off buying the Valkenhayn DLC, but this actually makes me want to go get it asap for some reason

  • Code

    rar, Taokaka needs more birthday in her birthday card, this is more of an “every day card” then it is a birthday card!

  • evilmoogle

    argh, cannot unsee the crotch :S …. :D….. :P

  • ChaosPaladinFayt

    @ First pic and last pic…OH GOD MY EYES…..AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    mmm….Noel ones are nice =^_^=

    no nu-12 ones? *sad face*

  • cj_iwakura

    That Arakune one. Yikes.

    • z_merquise

      Yeah, it kind of reminds me of those old heavy-metal album covers. Maybe Daisuke Ishiwatari drew it?

  • masuto

    This is why BlazBlue is so awesome.

  • PrinceHeir

    Noel’s Birthday Card is soooooooo HOT :D

  • Hours

    Bang’s cards look great! About time we got some beefcake to go with all the cheesecake.

    The next BlazBlue should have his fundoshi as an alternate outfit.

    • Ren

      I fully support this. As long as Tager don’t get the same treatment.

  • Ren

    WoW, Bang tights are so ginormous that they can feed a whole family for months. And why the hell that was the first thing I tought when I saw the image?

    I remember some of those. Hmm, I wonder if I can find the pictures of Jin’s slutty body pillow lineart again there.

    • Hours

      Bang is the definition of beef. Those thighs are like tree trunks.

      As for Jin’s body pilow, did you mean this?

      • Ren

        Yup, that’s the one, altough at the time I saw it wasn’t colored.
