Synopsis

It isn't the world you know. There wanders a girl with jet-black hair, ebony clothes, and a strikingly blue, glowing eye. Her name is Black★Rock Shooter. With a huge cannon in hand, she throws herself into a fierce battle...

Meanwhile, in another world, middle-school student Mato Kuroi is drawn to Yomi Takanashi, her classmate with an unusual family name. Mato does her best to talk to Yomi, who just won't open up. Yu Koutari mocks her best friend Mato's efforts but at the same time, supports her. Mato also finds herself surrounded by other colorful characters at school, like the eccentric school counselor, Saya Irino, and the hot-blooded captain of her club club, Arata Kohata.

Then, one day, the window of opportunity opens. After Mato sees that Yomi has her favorite picture book, "Li'l Birds At Play", they strike up a conversation and Mato is invited to come over to Yomi's house. There, they gradually break the ice, until a girl in a wheelchair appears. This is Yomi's best friend, Kagari Izuriha...

Two worlds. Mato and Black★Rock Shooter. This is the story of their "pain".

This is my second review ever written and this contains solely my opinion, i apologize in advance for any grammar mistakes you may find while reading it.

Wow this anime, as i'm scrolling through the reviews it's like 2 different worlds (no pun intended) i see half of people rating it at 1-3 and the other half rating it 9/10. To be fair most reviewers just end up giving it a 5, I guess you could call that neutral, neither a masterpiece nor utter garbage, but i feel the need to give some credit to this anime and am going to state all I think about read more

I got curious about this anime after seeing an AMV for it.

There are two world in this anime: the parallel world of the female fighter Black Rock Shooter and these other female fighters and then there is the real world of six female characters around whom the plot revolves. At first, you may be totally confused because the anime switches back and forth between these two worlds without explaining why. It is only in the later episodes that the connection between the two worlds is explained. If you watch the anime closely, you can figure it out beforehand I like did.

Personally, I read more

Recommendations

Both Anime focus around girls giving up something for a fight and the souls that are attached. They also have anime styles that don't stick to the norm.
Little Girls fighting against each other in parallel universes.

One bright side, where you have a kind of slice-of-life feeling while
there is the other "darker" side, where the girls fight.
A big difference is the card game, which is not in BRS but the dream sequences and
the overall atmosphere are quiet similar.
