Good Smile Company opened an official website for a new Black★Rock Shooter television anime titled Black★★Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall on Thursday, revealing a teaser visual (pictured).

Based on illustrator huke's original character design posted on Pixiv in December 2007, J-pop band supercell's leader ryo composed the Black★Rock Shooter song using vocals by Vocaloid synthesizer Miku Hatsune. The official music video debuted on Niconico in June 2008, which has garnered over 7.6 million views.

The pilot edition of an original video anime (OVA) based on the music video produced by animation studio Ordet was distributed by Good Smile Company in September 2009. Hobby Japan released the full 50-minute version with its August magazine issue in July 2010, subtitled in seven languages. The OVA was also bundled with Gakken's Megami and Animedia magazines, and Black★Rock Shooter Figma and Nendoroid figurines.

Ordet and CG animation studio Sanzigen produced an eight-episode television anime that aired on Fuji TV's noitaminA programming block in Winter 2012. Discotek Media licensed the anime last December and released it on home video with an English dub on July 27.

Synopsis
On the first day of junior high school, Mato Kuroi happens to run into Yomi Takanashi, a shy, withdrawn girl whom she immediately takes an interest in. Mato tries her best to make conversation with Yomi, wanting to befriend her. At first, she is avoided, but the ice breaks when Yomi happens to notice a decorative blue bird attached to Mato's phone, which is from the book "Li'l Birds At Play." Discovering they have a common interest, the two form a strong friendship.

In an alternate universe, the young girls exist as parallel beings, Mato as Black★Rock Shooter, and Yomi as Dead Master. Somehow, what happens in one world seems to have an effect on the other, and unaware of this fact, the girls unknowingly become entangled by the threads of fate. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Awesome news to wake up to. I lost interest in anime I used to have and barely saw any anime last or this year, but I'm certainly going to watch this when it releases.
I'm watching anime since 2012. I also play games, sometimes.

Don't bother me if you want to 'become friends' or things like that.
It's tiresome. I know you just want to collect some meaningless numbers.

Maybe it will be a full 12-episode remake of, you know, today's trends.

HOLY CHRIST, she's back? Like, I always wished for more of Rock, but I never thought it'd actually happen.

And she finally has the Black Trike, too? It doesn't look like the White Rock/Disciples storyline from the background, so that's very interesting.

Fingers crossed it's Sanzigen again, they did a perfect job last time.

EDIT: In fact, if I'm not mistaken, that's an entirely new outfit on her, which means this could be completely different. Very, very interesting.

LET'S FUCKING GOOOO.
Knew something tight was gonna happen once they gave BRS 2012 a dub. I hope they improve on the beautiful CG fights the show had. But full 2D would be cool too.
Can't wait to see what kind of BRS we're gonna get this time.

Surprised that this got necro'd after all these years now that vocaloids already fell out of relevance.

Given that Ordet is already bust, I'm curious on what studio will take this. One thing's for sure -- if Ultra Super Pictures still has the rights, it might end up in any of its sister studios (Trigger, Liden, Sanzigen, or ENGI). Not to mention that most of Ordet's staff were absorbed to Lidenfilms when it got dormant due to Yamakan's issues and Fractale's failure, while some went on to Lapin Track.

I'm interested on how will this go, but I have low expectations on this given how much of a mixed bag the original series were.

Damn, I guess goodsmile wants to tap into some of that early 2010’s energy again. Either that or their new BRS figure earlier in the year got a surprising amount of preorders lol.
Looking forward to whatever this is though. I loved the original anime. Not so much the OVA version.

TBH I barely remember what happened in the anime series (9 years is so much time) but when I hear the op I can understand you, because feel an incredibly nostalgic.

No disrespect but upon reading your comment I had to see when you joined, not that long ago, but you seem to have seen a decent number of stuff... really how can this be that good?
The visuals are the most interesting aspect about and even still, there is soo many better series, definitely forgettable, if I had to say, the art itself for the series is far more memorable than what is animated itself.
