Blue Reflection Ray at AnimeJapan 2021

Anime Corner Author

We continue our look back at AnimeJapan 2021, one of the biggest events for the anime industry. This time, we take a peek at Blue Reflection Ray, the upcoming adaptation of Gust’s role playing video game. The stage also reveals important announcement regarding the Blue Reflection project in general.

The segment held last March 28 features Manaka Iwami, Haruka Chisuga, character planner Mel Kishida and pop rock singer EXiNA. Iwami is cast as Hiori Hirahara, while Chisuga is cast as Ruka Hanari.

In the said segment held at AnimeJapan 2021’s Infinity Red Stage, the guests have provided their comments regarding the anime which has already aired its first episode.

The recap of the said event can be seen below (in Japanese):

In addition, two Blue Reflection titles have been announced: Blue Reflection Tie and Blue Reflection Sun. Blue Reflection Tie, to be released as Blue Reflection: Second Light, will be available for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Blue Reflection Sun will be available for iOS and Android devices. Not to mention, both upcoming titles will be available for the PC.

Capping off the segment, EXiNA performed the anime’s opening theme “divine” live on stage.

Here are other photos from the said event, featuring the guest as well as showing the anime visual:


This is a story of connecting shining emotions. Joy, sadness, anger. Feelings are a power, invisible to the eye, that every person possesses. Sometimes this power is even capable of changing the world.

Hiori Hirahara always has a positive attitude and can’t leave people in trouble alone. Ruki Hanari is socially awkward, she wants to get along well with others, but she doesn’t know how to go about it. How will the meeting of these two wildly different girls change not only them, but the world itself?

(Synopsis translated from the official Blue Reflection Ray anime website)

Blue Reflection Ray is available exclusively on Funimation in the United States & Canada, United Kingdom & Ireland, Mexico and Brazil. The series can also be streamed on AnimeLab in Australia & New Zealand, as well as Wakanim in France, Germany, Russia, and Scandinavian countries.
