BlazBlue Radio, also known as BlueRadio (ぶるらじ BuruRaji), is a radio show that started on April 9, 2009 on Nico Nico Douga. The main purpose of the show is to support and promote the BlazBlue franchise. The radio show is unique in that it is not only a voiced show, but also contains animations and art by the staff to create a more active and lively radio show. The main animations are super deformed versions of each character, such as those seen on Teach Me, Miss Litchi! and Help Me, Professor Kokonoe!.

As of June 3, 2010, a continuation show called Continued – BlueRadio (続・ぶるらじ Zoku – BuruRaji) began appearing on Nico Nico Douga. Similar to the first series of radio shows, this series also supports BlazBlue, specifically BlazBlue: Continuum Shift.

Yet another series called BlueRadio – Wide (ぶるらじW BuruRaji – Waido) began on March 31, 2011 on Nico Nico Douga. As with before, supporting BlazBlue is the radio show’s main goal, but they concentrate more on BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II this time around.

The 4th installment of the Radio series, BlueRadio – Hyper  (ぶるらじH Bururaji – Haipa) began on November 21, 2012, on Nico Nico Douga.

The 5th installment of the Radio series, BlueRadio – Ace  (ぶるらじA Bururaji – Eisu) began airing on October 24, 2013, on Nico Nico Douga.

The 6th installment of the Radio series, BlueRadio – Quick  (ぶるらじQ Bururaji – Kuikku) began airing on April, 2015.

The 7th installment of the Radio series called BlueRadio – Dynamic as its pilot airing began on July 28, 2016 until April 7, 2017 as they celebrate its 100th episode during the radio airing on its eighth and final episode.

The 8th installment of the Radio series called BlueRadio – Neo began on May 31, 2018 on Nico Nico Douga and YouTube. This one is considered as a reboot to Radio series as this series also promotes BlazBlue similar to before, but they concentrate currently on promoting BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle this time around. The main difference in this series compared to the previous installments is that this one is in 3D, using the lobby avatars and entrance lobby from BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.

There are also special episodes for the public recordings during BlueFes. On October 9, 2014, Radio: XBlaze aired – in many ways, it can be seen as the XBlaze counterpart to BlueRadio.


The main three members of BlueRadio are Ragna the Bloodedge’s Tomokazu Sugita, Noel Vermillion’s Kanako Kondō, and Tsubaki Yayoi’s (Izayoi in BlueRadio Hyper and onwards) Asami Imai. Amongst regular radio show activities such as reading fan letters, they also partake in different corners every airing. Almost every time there is a guest voice actor from BlazBlue who joins them. There are officially 12 episodes, a special episode after BlazBlue: Continuum Shift’s release, and a 4-part release of the BlueFes Spring Raid convention.

Continued – BlueRadio is much the same as the original BlueRadio but with different corners. Continued – BlueRadio ended with 13 episodes.
