An excellent song and video. It's a great and catchy song in both versions. I hope they make another a sequel OVA or a (Better) anime series of BRS.

Hatsune Miku strikes again, but not with a leek; a music video, albeit with a darker and more ominous sort of tone. I've always loved Miku; that's actually how I was introduced into the world of animated characters and such. The strange, mellifluous flowing of Miku's electronic voice always appealed to me, and here it sounded strangely lucid and creepy. Since this technically isn't an anime and simply the precursor to the OVA and the new show itself, this review isn't going to be long.

The whole video is centered around the main character Black Rock Shooter and the antagonist who battle, Black Rock Shooter of course is trying to save her friend from this antagonist.

The visuals including the place where they battle as well as the characters in the MV are very charming. The read more
