I personally enjoy Black Bullet although it could've been much better.
I was a fan of this Light Novel and also its manga adaption which was incredibly well done.
The story started off well but really lost its track with all the rush.
The story missed out on several key points and the fight scenes were to say..anti-climatic. Unlike in the Light Novel which focuses on Rentarou's emotion and the other characters the anime rushed this.-didn;t get to see any dem feels in the anime.
I enjoyed it and wll still recommend the anime but personally still feel that the anime had a lot of room for improvements.

Black Bullet is a story about a boy with his "cursed girl" defeating a monster called "Gastreas".

The reason why i watched this anime is because some of my friends recomended it. Surely, the dark theme fits me so much ,so i have a high hope for this anime. I watched this anime in a marathon style, but i was very dissapointed...

Story- 5
The story about gastreas itself is not that original but unique in its own ways. When we are biten/ infected by them we will become one of those monster that endanger humanity. But the problem lies in the 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

Anime: Shingeki no Kyojin
The remaining humans risks their entire race on a fight for survival or face extinction, the rich and powerful ruled for either the good of everyone or the 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  read more

Anime: Guilty Crown
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.

Anime: Gunslinger Girl
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.

Anime: Nobunagun

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.


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.
