BlazBlue Characters Hold Hands For Hope

By Spencer . March 28, 2011 . 12:47am

imageArc System Works made a charity BlazBlue collectable for Japan. They’re selling t-shirts with super-deformed Tsubaki, Ragna, and Noel holding hands around the word "hope." All proceeds from the t-shirts will go to the Red Cross for disaster relief efforts in regions affected by the Tohoku earthquake.


Each shirt costs 2,500 yen ($30) and can be ordered until March 31 from Broccoli’s online store. Take note that shirts are one size fits all (I guess that means really big?) and you can only place an order if you’re in Japan. BlazBlue shirts will begin shipping in mid to late April.


Aksys, just curious, but are you going to sell these in your online store in the States?

  • I want this…… .____. Such a shame I’d have to use a deputy service…

  • DanteJones

    D’awwww! Hope it makes its way to the Aksys US online store. :)

  • I’d buy it! That blue is slick.

    If anyone was wondering about Aksys’ proceeds from purchases made at their chop, they/you made it to over $34,000

    Amazed and touched by all the charity programs aided by gamesters.

  • Draparde

    wow, i’d soo buy that :O

  • Looks great, I might get me one when I get paid…

    “and you can only place an order if you’re in Japan”

    …*cries at work*

  • Zen will probably bring this here :D

  • Code

    This t-shirt needs more Tao, Tao would wanna help too! But still that’s a pretty fun t-shirt >w<

    • ForeverFidelis

      I honestly can’t believe they didn’t put Tao or Bang on something that’s supposed to be so heartwartming

  • I’d go for that. I’d rather it be in red though.

  • z_merquise

    Aaaww, it looked cute and touching at the same time.

    I really love it when fan-favorite game developers like Grasshopper and Arc Sys (I’m sure there’s more of them but I just can’t list them all) not only produce exciting games for you but they also do their best to help Japan recover from the disaster. It really made you like them even more.

  • Darkrise

    I’d buy that shirt, in fact, I’d buy those other shirts from Arc’s online store if they shipped worldwide. We’re missing alot of BB merchandise.

  • Guest

    I’d take a Capcom SF IV Hope T-Shirt featuring Blanka, M Bison and Vega holding hands

  • RagnaXBL

    i really want that shirt T_T

  • Scallion

    It’s good to know people can’t help their fellow man unless they’re coaxed into it by tacky animu merch. :D

  • masuto

    I want.

  • PrinceHeir

    i want this shirt along with Bizarre 5 Jelly :P
