It arrived sooner than I thought, better so, the popularity should still be high when it will be airing.

That's a VERY strange way to say gambling via gacha/loot box mechanics. Almost as if you're trying to downplay the fact that it's gambling. Super hyped for the anime but we should always highlight the fact that gacha is gambling.

I will say, I've been playing the game since the us launch and haven't spent a dime on it. Do i get new characters all the time? no, but its probably the most most forgiving one considering nearly every ingame event gives you at least 1 new character for participating.

Good news for fans, bad news if you want doujin from any other series unless it's evergreen or near evergreen (Idolmaster, Kancolle, Touhou, and Genshin). Hopefully the anime turns out great though.

I know what you're saying, but I need those Yuuka and Noa doujins to come in waves.

I mean it was already heading towards this point with blue archive replacing touhou in the introduction booklet like how kancolle did in 2013, so at least expect blue archive to be as (or more) prominent at comiket for a while and become an evergreen haha.

side note: I know there was some di gi charat doujin at the last comiket and the japan post sold some stamps for the series (plus some stuff for my dress up darling) so you can be sure that the only goods there won't just be the evergreen stuff + blue archive. Also there was a doujin of Galaxy Angel that was a parody of Akiba Maid War so that's cool

And if you are a fan of blue archive, i wish you the best of luck not spending all your money on the doujins lol

A good day for the lolicon community lol

But seriously, I heard that they botched the English release, but the game is still pretty popular driven by so many fanarts on Pixiv and Twitter. I mean, cultured fanart is cultured fanart I'm not going to complain, but I'm sure that the game devs knows which type of characters people like in this game.

They actually went ahead and brought out a solution for that. They raised the age rating of the current app, restored Aris scene to its original version and will create a censored version of the app (for whoever wants it). Otherwise, the game knows exactly who its audience is and doesn't hold back with a great story and bond stories.
