Character trailers for this April’s Blue Archive The Animation have begun to be deployed. The first such trailer features Shiroko (Yui Ogura), the field captain of Abydos High School’s Countermeasures Committee. 

Shiroko is noted to be typically impassive and untalkative, with the former trait in particular being noticeable in the trailer. However, despite her surface impression, Shiroko deeply cares about her school and will do anything to revive it, which results in some wild suggestions from time to time.

Blue Archive The Animation is based on the free-to-play “Youth x Academy x Military RPG” Blue Archive, which Google Play describes as:

You have been appointed as an advisor to the Federal Investigation Club, Schale, located in Kivotos. It’s a huge academy city where numerous academies are clustered together.

Resolve the endless incidents that occur in Kivotos with charming allies full of personality, and build special memories with them!

The anime will focus on Abydos High School, which is in danger of closing due to its sand-stricken situation. The story begins when the five students who form its Countermeasures Committee meet an adult called “Sensei.”

The NEXON Games-developed game was released in Japan in February 2021 for iOS and Android. Yostar Inc. handles the Japanese distribution, while NEXON Company is the global publisher. Blue Archive has a number of animated promotional videos.
