A near future, where humans have been defeated by the viral parasites named Gastrea. They have been exiled into a small territory and live in despair, side by side with terror.

In this world trapped in darkness—

Rentarou, a boy living near Tokyo and member of the "Civil Security"—an organization specializing in fighting against the Gastrea—is used to accomplishing dangerous tasks. His partner is Enju, a precocious young girl. They fight thanks to their peculiar powers until one day, when they receive a special assignment from the government. This top secret mission is to prevent the destruction of Tokyo...

Set in a near future, this thrilling heroic-action story... starts now!

Where to start... First time writing a review so my sincerest apologies if its crappy.

Well let`s start with the story i guess.
So the story is about humanity in the near future that had gotten their asses handed to them about 10 years ago by these close to immortal parasitic Gastrea beings that either infected or killed humans close to extinction. And now after barely escaping while managing to set up walls into small territories made of the only material Gastrea are weak to, the story focuses on our main characters Rentarou and Enju in the Civil Security which specialize in fighting the Gastrea, as well read more

~ Spoiler-free review of the Black Bullet's novel ~

Story : I find the story interesting , it is evolving at a great pace. The main problem to me is that the author has stopped writing after the anime arrived in 2014. So the story does not seem finished and it can be irritating, especially because the author doesn’t give news about this title.

Characters : There are three main characters in the story, with a few more side characters read more

I'll give you a short criticism right away, but you may check for more details a bit lower on the page.

Black Bullet has brilliant ideas to create stressful situations and horrific monsters and has quite the dark plot, even if there are lighthearted moments. The problem is... the way the world was designed and thought out makes no sense.
If you can't make abstraction of these things, you will shout at all the people living in this world because their actions read more
