* RoleReprisal: Funimation's English dub of the series saw the return of almost the entire dub cast of the games. While a couple of [=VAs=] already worked with Funi ([[Creator/PatrickSeitz Ragna]] and [[Creator/TravisWillingham Relius]], namely), most of the voice cast work in LA, making this an impressive feat on Funimation's part.


* BigDamnHeroes: Ragna pulls one on Jin in episode 12. Lampshaded.

* MindScrewdriver: The anime explains some of the odder plot elements of the video games a lot more clearly. For example, in episode 11 [[spoiler: Hazama explains the connection between the Boundary, the Amaterasu Unit, the Izayoi, the Prime Fields, Takamagahara, and the Blazblue.]]

** In episode 4, she eventually finds Ragna in Kaka Village resting from his injuries...[[ShirtlessScene shirtless]], which prompts Ragna to tell her not to stare and she denies it...[[LuminescentBlush while blushing.]] And then the next scene has her bandaging his wounds....[[NurseWithGoodIntentions with less than desirable results.]]

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: In the games, Ragna [[spoiler: left Hazama for dead]] because of the [[spoiler: life link he had with Noel]], meaning he couldn't die anyway, something Ragna acknowledges. Since no such thing is even mentioned in the anime, Ragna's decision makes no type of of sense.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalJerkass: Downplayed: in [[Franchise/BlazBlue the original games]], Jin is already quite a {{Jerkass}}, but he still has a soft spot for his ChildhoodFriend Tsubaki. Here, that soft spot is gone.


** CompressedAdaptation: In contrast, the two-and-a-half episodes devoted to ''Calamity Trigger'' ignore everything that isn't to do with the central Ragna plot. The ''Continuum Shift'' part also had plenty of content that wasn't related to Ragna or Noel cut, even adding in filler to make up for the lack of content those two provided.

** It could be argued that every character except Ragna, Jin, Noel, Rachel, Lambda, Tsubaki, Makoto, Kokonoe and Hazama got hit with this since, even if they appeared for part of an episode, it is mostly for [[TheCameo a cameo]] and ignores important subplots involving them. Some major ones are [[spoiler: Carl being Relius’ son, Platinum having the soul of Trinity of the Six Heroes, Bang discovering the power of his Phoenix: Rettenjou and Hakumen being Jin from the timeline without Noel]].



** [[spoiler:Jin says this to Tsubaki after he defeats her]], which is ''very'' out of character since, in the games, [[spoiler:after defeating her his only concern is if he can save her]].
