An anime project based off the video game Blue Reflection has been announced for April of 2021. The anime series will be called Blue Reflection Ray.
Blue Reflection is a 2017 video game from Gust Co. who are known for their work on the Atelier franchise; the game was published by Koei-Tecmo. Blue Reflection follows Hinako Shirai, a student at Hoshinomiya Girls High School in contemporary Japan.
Shirai used to be a ballet dancer who had to quit following her passion after an accident which injured her leg. However she’s given the power to fight as a magical girl (called a “Reflector”) and is once again able to move freely thanks to the power of being a Reflector.
