The 13 episode ride on an enormous bug packed with corpses is finally over.
Every season, I have my formulaic line up of series. There’s the one show I’m generally excited for, the mandatory fanservice show, and the one generic action show. This season I got my mandatory Jojo which will continue on for the next few seasons. Hitsugi no Chaika and Ping Pong carved it’s way into my heart as a fondly remembered series with the former getting a second season in the Fall. Date A Live was the fanservice show of the season which already got its biased yet objective review from me. So all in all, it was a pretty damn good season.
But then there’s the odd one out. The ugly duckling colored black while its siblings are comically muscular, ugly but full of heart, questionably acceptable, and one with huge eyebrows.
I’m sorry if you don’t get my joke but whatever, let’s talk about Black Bullet.

So here I thought Black Bullet would end but apparently not. We got one more week so the series review comes next time.
Although the episode was obviously rushed, I guess we needed these few minutes we had to hastily iron a few things out before the final, catastrophic slam. It’s like the scene right after Kagetane was defeated back in Episode 3 or 4, shit goes full throttle and pummels us with more information and exposition.
I’ll be glad it’s over.
Bad writing ahead, you can tell that I really didn’t want to talk about this episode in particular.

I was able to pick up a copy of MGRR last Friday and I finished it on Saturday afternoon. Other than being enslaved to the musical onslaught of Maniac Agenda for the past few days, the events in the game more or less, unknowingly, prepared me for this episode. Kidnapping around a hundred kids, harvesting and selling their organs while putting their brains through virtual reality slaughtering contests is, in my mind, a bit more gruesome than a handful of kids getting killed by a bomb.
That may not ring with too many of you but a game about chopping people into little pieces really “steeled” me up for some atrocities. Thanks Senator Armstrong.
Anyways, I hope you didn’t get too attached to the loli’s in Rentaro and Kisara’s school.
Oh, and who guess who’s back.

Look at this guy. The episode aired Tuesday and he’s posting his thoughts on it as the last series for the week. Well, classes end in around 3 weeks and immediately after classes end is ACEN. That’s not excuse for my tardiness but if anything, let’s just say Jojo, DAL, and Nisekoi had a bit more time to grown on me than Black Bullet has. It’s a matter of time before this stakes a claim but for now, this will most likely keep happening. Jojo and DAL take usual priorities but Nisekoi ends in 4 episodes.
Would you look at that, it’s a double coverage.
Anyways, circumstances and favoritism aside: We got more of our semi-competent MC with a loli that’s pretty cool. Rikiya Koyama’s voice is doing wonders as Hiruko but Kira will be the best voice he has ever done. Screw that laid-back asshat from DxD.

Yuki Kaiji now has a chance to make himself not be a crappy protagonist. Alibaba doesn’t count because Aladdin is more of a protagonist (and he suffers less). Black Bullet is the series that eliminated other series in my watch list because it got to me first in terms of filing out the tropes list. That being said we have: Half-decent protagonist who isn’t useless, Loli who isn’t annoying as hell, Rikiya Koyama voicing the villain, and general monster killing.
So sorry other series, Black Bullet was the first to get watched and made an ever so slight change in my viewing needs to compensate my apparent losses. So let’s see where this ends up, Mahou Sensou left a bad taste in my mouth and while it won’t be hard to top it, I would like a decent series while I’m cleaning my palette.
