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!
