The official English Twitter account for Yostar and Nexon Games' Blue Archive smartphone role-playing game announced on Wednesday that Blue Archive The Animation, the television anime adaptation of the game, will debut in North America with English subtitles this Friday at 12:00 a.m. UTC (Thursday at 8:00 p.m. EDT) on the franchise's official global YouTube channel.

The anime premiered on TV Tokyo's new Sunday night anime programming block, and on its affiliates on April 7. The anime is currently airing.

Currently, Ani-One Asia is streaming the anime in territories in Asia with English and other subtitles, though the English subtitles contain numerous errors and grammatical mistakes, or otherwise awkward phrasing.

The anime adapts the "Countermeasures Committee" arc.

Daigo Yamagishi (Yuruyuri 2019 OVA, Show By Rock!! Stars!!) is directing the anime at Yostar Pictures and Candy Box. Shunji Maki is the assistant director, Hiroshi Ohnogi and Yamagishi are overseeing the series scripts, and Hiromitsu Hagiwara is the character designer and chief animation director.
