Mato Kuroi just got into junior high school, and on the first day, someone catches her eye; her classmate Yomi Takanashi. The two meet.The innocent and naive Mato. The mature Yomi. Seemingly opposites, but the time they spend together only strengthens a growing friendship. But as they go into their second year at the school, they get placed in separate classes, and they begin to grow apart. But somewhere simultaneously… In another world, a young girl, blue fire residing in her eyes, Black Rock Shooter faces another young girl; this one holding a jet-black scythe, Dead Master, and a battle to the death begins to unfold.

When I first heard about Black Rock Shooter I was seriously excited. Seriously. The first thing I fell in love with was the designs and overall vividness/color contrast. There were all so good. But BRS isn’t just skin-deep; The plot and storytelling is strange yet intriguing. I mean, how would you incorporate intense fight scenes with a normal school-based routine which later turns into a suspense/mystery.But, nevertheless, the story keeps you wanting for more. But I’m not going to lie, there were several times were i thought things were…”quite” which sometimes translates to “boring”. For some reason I think it was intentional, but it can turn many people off. And also, [Spoiler] the ending doesn’t solve the
mystery of the reason for the connection of the two worlds.
The story is appealing in many ways.
There are some loose ends by the end.
There’s an up-coming series. And Black Rock Shooter started out from a popular song. Fun fact.
