The Plot/Setting:


I think if you have watched a lot of anime throughout your whole life, it's kind of difficult to find something that's so overly unique. Some anime can offer refreshing attributes while some borrow some elements from other anime and make it their own. And that is exactly what I think about Black Bullet. For the most part, Black Bullet does have its fair share of unique elements to its plot: the Cursed Children, the Gastrea, the New Creation Plan among others. In a way, those elements makes it different and somewhat unique compared to other anime. However, the repetitive idea of war, violence read more

Although Black Bullet is tagged as being action, mystery, sci-fi, seinen, and probably post-apocalyptic, it should really be considered a loli-harem comedy first and foremost. The comedy is completely unintentional but it's what kept me watching week after week. Black Bullet is driven by manufactured drama and the characters are one dimensional cardboard cutouts with some dark backstories thrown in. Several important plot points are brought up and then never mentioned again, leaving the audience to wonder why we were even given this information in the first place.

The story follows high school student and "Promoter" Satomi Rentaro and his loli partner Enju, who uses her read more

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

Recommendations

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.
Both have:

- Have a task of protecting the city or eliminating the threat.
- Fight with guns, katana, sniper and etc.
- Similarities character:

Tooyama Kinji = Satomi Rentarou
Kanzaki Aria = Aihara Enju
Hotogi Shirayuki = Tendou Kisara
Reki = Tina Sprout
Mine Riko = Shiba Miori

- Each anime have some great action and fight scene.
- Each both main character have a female partner loli pink hair ponytails. (Kinji x Aria, Rentarou x Enju)
Similarities:
- Master & Partner
- Partner wants to marry master
- Partner are not considered to be human, but master treats them as human
- Main protaganist both fights
- They call out their fighting styles or spells
- One Boss fight per arc type of anime
- Dark gloomy and bloody
Little girls who can't live a normal life, they are assigned to guys, in order to form pairs man+girl, and the girls are used as weapons. The girls still to be humans, but they are treated as objects, and often in a cruel way. There are few persons who takes care of them, like as the main male character.
Similarities:

Both involves the same situation where mankind is under threat from alien invasion.

Both involves secret organization whom were tasked to take them aliens out.

Both have the same individuals with special abilities to fight off aliens.

Dissimilarities:

The aliens involve in one anime attack by using massive numbers, while the aliens in the other anime attack by snatching bodies from humans.

One anime has a lolicon element, while the other anime had a romance element.
