First impressions : Black★Rock Shooter

So after a long wait it is finally airing! Although I have never seen the OVA I engaged in watching it. The first thing that I could notice is how similary it is to Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika. The paralel world is really similar to the witch’s world in Madoka Magika. Im glad however that they did not add any weird monsters to it like they did in Madoka.

Hey! Lets be friends!

At first glance it will just look like a normal highschool drama but there are some abnormal things added in the real world as well. For instance, when Takanashi was talking on that weird looking object with the loli that hates our dear protagonist. That should be theoretically impossible. Also we can see that there is a strange realationship beween Takanashi and that loli.

The paralel world has an interesting look

The story takes place in both worlds, both of them being indirectly connected to each other. It all starts when the protagonist is trying to become friends with an weird classmate. However it may not be as simple as it seems. Takanashi “is not allowed” to do that. However she breaks that rule and brings her home with her. Our dear protagonist gets to meet that loli girl which makes fun of her suggesting her to leave. She got hurt and the next day at school she went to see the councelor. There is an meaningfull phrase she said:

-> Your heart is hurting like it was stabbed, yet there is no blood or damage. Someone else takes that pain instead of you.

I think that might be a hint reffering to the other part of her living in the paralel world.

There is also one more thing I should mention and that is the awesome OP that BRS has. As a miku fan I have known this song for quite a while, but now a video finally came out. Enjoy~

    • You’re right on that, but I can just guess by looking at the hints we were given in the conversation between Kuroi Mato and the councelor: “Your heart is hurting like it was stabbed, yet there is no blood or damage. Someone else takes that pain instead of you.” I think that she’s probably refering to the Kuroi Mato of the paralel world. But then again, that’s just my guess.

  1. The real world animation is a bit of a disappointment. The other world with all the CG is good though. I’m a BRS fan, so there is no reason to not like the show. I guess this is something extra before the BRS OVA even started. I’m liking the battle part of the show, more of it and it’s a win!

    Mato is cute and I like her way personality. What I like the most about BRS has always been Mato’s voice. It’s so adorable. Can I make her as my waify? :3

    • Well yeah, you could say that the real world’s animation is pretty basic. The diffrence between the two are huge. Also it seems that they’re all extremely quiet in the paralel world. So far so good, I think BRS has done a good job up until now.

  2. “For instance, when Takanashi was talking on that weird looking object with the loli that hates our dear protagonist. That should be theoretically impossible. ”

    It was a cup and string telephone bro, plenty possible :p
