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".

Story 7/10

The story concept fascinated me till the last second of the anime. It is an original idea, which could be better transformed into the anime.

Art 6/10

I watched many animes before Black★Rock Shooter and I wasn't fascinated, when I saw this one. The anime fuses two "drawing" styles. On the one hand we have "normal" anime style, like we have it in almost every anime, but not to much details, on the other hand the anime also uses animations. If the anime would only use "normal" anime style, the score would be higher.

Sound 7/10

Long story short, the sound is good. I liked the opening very read more

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

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.
Dark Gothic animation when the story heads into the other world, intricate designs for the fighting girls outfits, not to mention dreams and erasing pain... the Anime are very similar in tone.
