BRISTOL (24 April 2012) To say thank you to Arc System Works in Japan for creating the exceptional 2D fighting series BlazBlue, Arc System Works Europe are pleased to announce the Arc System Works Thank You Project. A unique chance for those who love BlazBlue to give something back to the BlazBlue team in Japan.

Running for three weeks as of today (24.04.2012) Arc System Works Europe will be accepting submissions of BlazBlue Artwork and Cosplay Photography from BlazBlue fans via the Thank You Project submission page at:

The best submissions will be selected by the Arc System Works Europe team and published in a Limited Edition book to be sent to Toshimichi Mori and the rest of the BlazBlue team at Arc System Works in Japan.

The creators of each of the submissions that are selected will also receive their very own copy of the Thank You Arc book as well as the honour of having their own work sent to Mori and Arc System Works.

For those less artistically skilled, fans can also submit their own personal messages through the same page which if selected will be printed in the limited edition book.
