The art of Blue Archive


I don’t need another mobile game in my life, thanks to Fate/Grand Order. This isn’t from a lack of desire however; friends have tried repeatedly to get me into Arknights, Honkai Star Rail, Genshin, and Time-Strapped Ruben.

But I’ll admit, Blue Archive’s art won me over two years later, no thanks to reader Simon who told me I had to try it. It’s his fault, in other words.

The game dynamic wasn’t quite my cup of tea, but as I suspected, the art and immersive world were stunning, and the chibi versions of the characters were more than a little cute.

If they have an official artbook, maybe I need to get that. Cough.
