A new trailer has been released for the magical girl anime BLUE REFLECTION RAY, which will premiere on April 9.

The staff includes Risako Yoshida (The Irregular at Magic High School: Visitor Arc) as director, Akiko Waba (KIMIMOTE) as series composer, and Daisuke Shinoda (Angelique Luminarise game) as music composer. Kouichi Kikuta (Tamayomi: The Baseball Girls) is designing the characters for the anime based on designs by Mel Kishida (BLUE REFLECTION game). J.C Staff is in charge of the animation production.

BLUE REFLECTION RAY’s story will revolve around the meeting between Hiori and Ruka Hanari. Hiori is a girl who cannot leave those in trouble alone, while Ruka is awkward and doesn’t know how to get along with others. The story is described as one where “sparkling thoughts connect.”
