World War Blue, also known as Aoi Sekai no Chūshin de, is a parody of the Console Wars between Nintendo and Sega in their early era, originally created by Anastasia Shestakova with art by Crimson. The manga has been licensed in the US by Seven Seas Entertainment, and an anime adaptation by 5th Avenue, directed by High School Dx D director Tetsuya Yanagisawa, is licensed by Media Blasters and streaming on Crunchyroll.

World War Blue provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Villainy: Nintendo is the antagonist in this series.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Tofai. Interestingly, she's based on Akuma from Street Fighter.
  • Bishōnen: Tejirov. Gear doesn't look too bad himself. Most of the young male cast falls under this.
  • Composite Character: Those who aren't Expies of individual characters are this. Fare seems to be a combination of many Fire Emblem lords (designwise invoking Marth, Ephiraim, Roy, and Sigurd the most), Carvai seems to be an Expy of Kirby but wears a robe and wields a hammer similar to King Dedede, etc.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Gear. This is despite Sonic, the character he's based on, generally being depicted with green eyes.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Whenever Opal uses her Shooting ability, it really seems like as though something else was about shoot from within her...
  • Double Entendre: Tejirov's Tetris jokes are just Tetris jokes, right?...right?...guys?....
