Blue Reflection: Second Light released on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC today, and it follows three students who find themselves transported to a floating academy. They must search for clues and find their way back home! You can find out more about the game right here!

What better way to prepare for a new journey with Reflectors than by setting the anime mood with magical girls and other worlds? Here are five anime for you to watch while you wait for the game to arrive.


Blue Reflection Ray

Of course, we had to kick things off with Blue Reflection Ray, an original story told within the Blue Reflection universe!

Having aired only this year with 24 episodes, Blue Reflection Ray is the perfect way to get a feel for the world and characters, what troubles await them as the Reflectors attempt to save those in distress, and how the magical girl genre is tackled anew.

Assault Lily BOUQUET

Assault Lily BOUQUET follows Lilies, specially trained teenage girls, as they act as the last line of defence for humanity!

Wielding technology designed explicitly to defeat the invading alien force, the Huge, you can join them as they balance fighting and their relationships.

Cardcaptor Sakura and Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card

Cardcaptor Sakura is an all-time classic and one that you have to check out if Blue Reflection ignites a love for the magical girl genre in you!

With great power comes great responsibility, and both school girls as they do their best to balance their everyday life with their new responsibility of protecting those in need. And you can catch its sequel series as well!

Kageki Shojo!!

Kageki Shojo!! takes place in a competitive theatrical and musical arts school, and it reminds us of Blue Reflection due to main characters who have love of performing in various ways, themes of failing and picking yourself back up, and both take place in an all-girls school!

Both will have you cheering for the success of its cast, whether they’re aiming for the top or battling enemies in another world.
