Synopsis

These young girls' hearts are pure, and then violent!

Mato Kuroi just got into junior high school, and on the first day, someone catches her eye; her classmate Yomi Takanashi. The two meet.

The innocent and naive Mato. The mature Yomi. Seemingly opposites, but the time they spend together only strengthens a growing friendship.

But as they go into their second year at the school, they get placed in separate classes, and they begin to grow apart.

But somewhere simultaneously...

In another world, a young girl, blue fire residing in her eyes, Black Rock Shooter faces another young girl; this one holding a jet-black scythe, Dead Master, and a battle to the death begins to unfold.

Inspiration comes in a myriad of forms, and anything can lead a person on a flight of fancy. In 2007 the artist Huke designed an original character called "Black Rock Shooter", which he posted on his blog. The character inspired Ryo, the leader of the band Supercell, to write a song entitled "Black Rock Shooter", and Huke joined the band to provide further illustrations that were used in the music video for the song. Anyone familiar with the band's musical history will find it unsurprising that the lyrics themselves are sung by none other than the Vocaloid Hatsune Miku.

Friendship. Something that is craved and needed by everyone. But if that friendship were torn, how far would you go to repair it?

Black Rock Shooter is a fantastic short story of two girls whose friendship grows from the roots that is highschool. Everyday brought them closer, making the possibility of losing one another made it that much more unbearable.

Story: Inevitably in a short OVA like BRS, there isn't much time to create a deep and complex story. So knowing this, BRS takes a common storyline and throws in something unique, making it utterly fantastic.

Recommendations

One girl snap at her best friend for absolutely no good reason. Then they fight. Relationship-wise, both can be implied as shoujo-ai.
I heard all the times that maiden heart work in mysterious ways. Positively looking this two shows just portray it to the extreme.

Ga-rei zero do include why the fight is unavoidable in an interesting non-chronological fashion. BRS however is written in the way that assume audience know everything, making the show sort of a fan fare.
Both feature the alter ego of a young girl fighting strange creatures in a surreal otherworld.
