Despite being only two games deep, the BlazBlue series has a rabid fanbase, and with every rabid fanbase comes spin-offs. That's not necessarily a bad thing. If a top-notch series can branch out into new genres, while retaining its soul and original level of quality, it can work to expand brand awareness and strengthen the series as a whole. It can also be a lot of fun.
That's what I was hoping to get out of BlayzBloo. That's not really what I got.
