From BlazBlue Wiki

ArcNama (あーくなま), short for Arc System Works Official Livestream (アークシステムワークス公式生放送 Āku Shisutemu Wōkusu Kōshiki Namahōsō), is a Japanese-language Livestream started in October 2013 to promote products developed or published by Arc System Works. The stream is held irregularly to release news, demo games, host community events like open BlazBlue lobbies with the staff, and livestream events like the Arc System Works Halloween Party.

In Sept 2017, a regularly broadcast version of ArcNama (あーくなま定期便 Ākunama Tēkibin "Regularly-Scheduled ArcNama") began to be held on the third Friday of every month, primarily to release news for BBTAG with the pacing of one set of characters per stream. Even after the release of BBTAG and the reveal of the last of its DLC roster at Evo 2018, the regular stream continued to be held every month with news about other ASW games. ASW also began streaming on Twitch simultaneously with NicoNico with the advent of the monthly ArcNama.

Arc: Global Operation

Arc: Global Operation (AGO) was a browser game available to play at for the duration of April 1, 2018 only. Its layout parodies the popular mobile RPG, Fate/Grand Order, but the game itself only contains a lottery ("gacha") from which cards of rarities from 1 star to 5 star can be pulled.

At certain points during the livestream, the hosts would pull a ball from a capsule machine containing a keyword that listeners could input into AGO to gain Shinyokoins (しんよコイン), a play on the words "Shinyoko" (the location of the ASW office) and "coin". Shinyokoins could be used to pull the lottery at a rate of 3 Shinyokoins per pull, or alternatively 30 Shinyokoins for ten pulls at once.
