The official music video that eventually spawned the entire Black Rock Shooter franchise. Inspired by the first official illustration by huke, the song was composed by ryo of supercell, illustrated by huke and sung by Hatsune Miku, Vocaloid's main character.
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.
Story: Sounds depressing. Miku really belts out a sad lament. That's really it.
The art was colorful (yet dark) and the swirling eddies of blue and black really added to the tone of the overall music. Miku, portrayed sort of a damsel in distress, is drawn dark and foreboding, smooth lines yet jagged edges.
Character: What character development really was there? It was simply Miku singing the entire time. I've never reviewed something with no characters.....Still, this was simply an advertisement for the OVA and now TV show. So yea, the lone and only character was fantastic. After all, it was only 5 minutes...
Overall, I since it's Miku, I loved it. However, not all of us are fans - therefore, you may find this boring or uneventful or stupid. For me, this was a nice little break from my other anime series, and an enjoyable one at that.read more
The original Black Rock Shooter is a "innocent" girl that wakes up from her sleep and have to fight aliens, she is the coolest girl in the 2D world. This anime changes BRS character so much that i can't even tell if it is really her, and what the hell is the friendship thing? you want to see human friendship and love? PLAY THE GAME
If you want a great story and good characters play the game for PSP, the story, art, sound, characters, everything inn the game is just outstanding, maybe that is the reason why i can't like this anime.
Watch this, it's only 4min long. And it's about fighting. But without further ado, let me quickly review this great music video.
The story of this MV (music video, duh) is quite commonly found in stories; fighting to save a friend. While this is not the most unique story, it was well exectued and beautifully animated. 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 whole place has this unique atmosphere, the same kind of which can be found in Madoka Magica or the Monogatari -series. It's odd and absurd but very charming.
The best part of this MV is definitely the character design, I personally found Black Rock Shooter really cool and sexy. The antagonist was also well characterized and filled in the evil position really well with her design.
The music was from average to okay/good for me. Not the best, but slightly above average. I really liked Black Rock Shooter's voice at the end though.
Overall, I really enjoyed this short MV and loved the character design. If you didn't watch the video before reading this review as I suggested, please do go watch it now if I convinced you even a little bit. It is worth your time. Probably.
The human mind can only take so much before it just snaps like a twig. When that happens people can have different reactions, from breaking down and crying to going on a killing spree. One bad day can be the tipping point that forever changes a person for better or for worse.
Vocaloids have transformed the way music is being created, how characters are brought to life, and how some companies are viewing their intellectual properties. They've also influenced and inspired the creation of 'Vocaloid anime'. It's time to delve into the world of Vocaloids!
