    More details about Blue Archive: The Animation will be revealed at AnimeJapan 2024. Blue Archive is available now for Android and iOS worldwide. Lastly, here’s an overview of Blue Archive from NEXON:

    The city’s academies are divided into their own districts and are considered mostly independent.
    The General Student Council acts as governing board to manage the academies as a whole. However, the group’s ability to govern has come to halt since the mysterious disappearance of the General Student Council president. Countless issues have begun to surface throughout Kivotos in the absence of the president’s leadership.
    To avoid disaster, the General Student Council requests assistance from the Federal Investigation Club, otherwise known as Schale. In fact, Schale is the city’s newest club and the last to be approved before the president’s disappearance.
    To accomplish its task, Schale relies on the guidance of a Sensei who can help them resolve the incidents around Kivotos.
    (Students are required to carry personal weapons and smart phones! Get a taste of the military action, love, and friendship the Academy City has to offer!)
