Black Bullet is one of the many light novel adaptations that aired during Spring 2014. You might know the other ones as The Irregular at Magic High School, No Game No Life, and Chaika - The Coffin Princess. It started out okay, but got progressively weaker as it went on, before turning into an unentertaining show that turned out to be a rushed and half-baked adaptation. Shame, it had potential to be way better.

If you've read the synopsis on the show's page on this site, it'll tell you that it takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where humanity is practically on the brink of extinction, read more

Black bullet is a anime that was adopted from a light novel. This series was being compare to attack on titan, or being called a copycat to attack on titan, but that can't be true since attack on titan isn't the first nor last to have these kind of story and settings. Coming into this series, it had a lot of hype from people who read the light novel or the manga. What most people didn't realize is that it would be adopted into 13 episodes which would mean the pacing would be rushed. So lets begin, I'll be reviewing this series in five category, read more

Humans are all fighting for survival or face extinction, the rich and powerful ruled for either the good of everyone or a greed for power. 'Black Bullet' demonstrates that good and bad are not very different depending on how you perceive it.

'Shingeki no Kyojin' has a darker history as the people have lived under fear for a longer period of time and any beings that are different from them have to be destroyed. Kill or be killed is a way to describe the ways of life of the people. Freedom of action is not permitted to the greatest of pleasure but just like 'Black Bullet', it proves that good and evil are just lines drawn to preserve order and peace.
An infectious disease has spread. Causing people to die/turn into monsters. Only the main character and his companions have a way of dealing with it. They must find a way to cure it. Both series has great OST and visuals. One series is mecha while other is not. Kaji Yuuki does the voice of the main protagonist.
