    Synopsis

    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 in terror.

This top secret mission is to prevent the destruction of Tokyo...

    Opening


    With four episodes currently airing during the creation of this thread, Black Bullet has solidified it's place as one of the better shows airing this season. If you're into blood, action, monsters, lolis, or anything in between, this show is guaranteed to bring you some form of enjoyment. The animation is well done and stays consistent throughout the episodes. The main characters are rather bland in all honesty, with the exception of Enju. As the series is still in progression, there is a wide range of opportunity for character development. Here's hoping Black Bullet will continue to amaze.

    This anime is nice, but a bit more on the dramatic side :D

    There's more drama than there's action in this anime,

    but it mixes it both well, and it's enjoyable :D

    So, yea, I also recommend people to watch this

    I like the anime, but I really like the manga more!! In the anime, I felt that it doesn't really develop much character in the side-characters! Perhaps it's because of the limited time in episodes, but it really breezes over the side-characters, and focuses on the main characters more... Which I believe is really a shame!

    Overall, I would recommend reading the manga first before you see the anime!

    If you haven't read the manga or seen the anime, read no further!!

    When Shougen died (the Promoter with the huge black sword), in the manga it showed how in his last dying moment, he had a really strong bond with his Initiator. Even though to other people it was seen as if Shougen was using his Initiator as a tool and nothing more, it wasn't actually like that!! Shougen wanted to help his Initiator; to justify her existence!! Yet, in the anime it skipped Shougen's dying moment, completely obscuring how actually strong the bond he and his Initiator shared... 本当に残念だ!(What a shame!!)

    Forgive me if I rambled... But, I like both the anime and manga, and yes, I do recommend both!!
