Black Bullet was an awaited anime that many fans wanted to see the first day it was announced. Many had high hopes for this anime, but in my opinion, it failed to fully deliver the full package this anime was holding.

Story:
The story is very basic. Or well, in fact, there is no story. It starts off as any casual anime, the good guy being caught in the middle of a battle only to reveal the only interesting character in the entire series, which hardly had any character development in the end.
The 'story' is made up of arcs which overlay each other. While this may 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

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.
