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On the first day of junior high school, Mato Kuroi happens to run into Yomi Takanashi, a shy, withdrawn girl whom she immediately takes an interest in.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]

I'm very much excited, I just hope they continue to add Chariot/Kagari into the story. I really like her twisted nature and Chariot is by far my favorite of the different counterparts aesthetically.

I hope this time they'll do it without 3D

Now I'm thinking whether should I watch the OG 2012 Black★Rock Shooter (TV, OVA or both versions), because this poster image looks good.

Golly! My friend recommended me the original anime as something I should definitely watch because he absolutely loves it. I've also been considering picking up the game on my Vita (it's on my list) as well. This is awesome!

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.



You realize that people are allowed to have different opinions right? Brs has a lot to enjoy and it simply didn't interest you .

This has me pumped! The ova and anime series resonated with me on such and emotional level and I can't belobe black rock is finally coming back. I hope this series continues the concept of the other selves enduring the emotional pain of their human hosts. It was so brilliant.


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.

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.

This is so unexpected. I 've enjoyed it a lot the tv anime back in 2012 so am happy that black rock shooter will return in 2022 maybe. I am so happy :)
