Back in January we got word that a TV anime adaptation is in the works for mobile RPG Blue Archive, and now we have more details. Blue Archive the Animation is being produced at Yostar Pictures and Candy Box, with Daigo Yamagishi (Show By Rock!! Stars!!) directing.

The first two cast members were also revealed, including Konomi Kohara as Arona and Yui Ogura as Shiroko Sunaokami. You can see their respective character designs below.

Here’s how the setting of the Blue Archive game is described:

The city’s academies are divided into their own districts and are considered mostly independent.

The General Student Council acts as governing board to manage the academies as a whole. However, the group’s ability to govern has come to halt since the mysterious disappearance of the General Student Council president. Countless issues have begun to surface throughout Kivotos in the absence of the president’s leadership.

To avoid disaster, the General Student Council requests assistance from the Federal Investigation Club, otherwise known as Schale. In fact, Schale is the city’s newest club and the last to be approved before the president’s disappearance.

To accomplish its task, Schale relies on the guidance of a Sensei who can help them resolve the incidents around Kivotos. (Students are required to carry personal weapons and smart phones! Get a taste of the military action, love, and friendship the Academy City has to offer!)
