Hey! Guess what? I’m actually still alive! After being cooped up for so long and having seen quite a bit of the spring season, I asked the other writers if we could do a wrap-up of Winter and voice our opinions of the shows we watched.
And contrary to the usual thing about Winter being cold, ours was as hot as… hmm… Ririchiyo in stockings? If you have not noticed, I’m a very lenient rater so my rating for anime will seem rather high, but I look at it from a really wide perspective. How much I liked and enjoyed the show xD てへぺろ （･ω＜） The other writers will be adding opinions too so pardon the really random scores.
I almost stayed up till early in the morning to wait for the episode to air until I remembered it’ll be in Japanese anyway so it’ll be useless. I was really looking forward to it. Thank goodness today is a E-learning day for my school (When we stay at home and do worksheets the teachers email to us) so I had time to watch Black Rock Shooter and the other anime that ends today, Guilty Crown.
Of the two, I really can’t pick which I’m more upset over due to the fact they’ve ended. But Black Rock Shooter’s ending was slightly better than Guilty Crown’s in my opinion.
So now, let the final episodic begin.
Well, a delightful fruit on Twitter informed me that this episode would be intense and damn; was she right. That was such an enjoyable episode. Finally, most of our doubts are cleared and the main basis for the entire story laid out clearly.
This delightful episode starts of with Mato thinking about why she likes the Li’l Bird Li’l Bird Colorful Colours. Although the story does not have a happy ending, she wonders why she still likes it so much.
I thought the last episode was epic mindf**k but Black Rock Shooter decided to beat that with Episode 6. My mind is now sufficiently raped thanks to it.
Well, to start of the episode, we have Mato trapped in Insane Black Rock Shooter and she’s talking to herself about killing Dead Master, who looks like Yomi (I wonder why~). She’s convinced she has ruined Yomi and that she can’t fly any more. She looks around in the blue void of BRS’s mind and screams in anguish.
Black Rock Shooter begins transforming into Insane BRS at this point. She gets perforated by multiple chains and purple crystals/spikes and comes out of the maelstrom as Insane BRS. Shortly after doing that, she lifts up her now pimped out weapons and gets to killing Black Gold Saw. However, BGS evades all her attacks and shoves her great big sword into Insane BRS’s right shoulder. Being Insane, BRS rips her own arm off. The whole time this was happening, Mato was screaming in a banshee whenever Insane BRS was wounded. Cue opening song. What a great way to start the episode. I was eating when I was watching. Happily, I’m not squeamish about blood, especially when it spews out as black and purple crystals.
First, let me saysay “holy f****g shit, what was that addkgjlrvh *head-laptop*”
Ok, now that that is out of the way, the episodic can begin for the most mindf**k episode of Black Rock Shooter yet.
I have no idea how to start this but heck, let’s go
The episode starts with Black Rock Shooter going ape-shit on Dead Master’s armies, tearing them new assholes with 2 Chainguns. However, she gets smashed by a giant warrior with a hammer but kills it. Yomi sends out her 2 giant skull servants and they fuse into a giant 2 headed entity that tries to kill Black Rock Shooter. Black Gold Saw watches all this and then proceeds to vanish under the green liquid of Dead Master’s realm.
Mato and Yuu are then seen walking to school where Mato is hesitating is she should go to Yomi’s house to pick her up. Eventually, she gets there and presses the doorbell where Yomi’s mother answers, telling them to go away. However, Yomi comes out of the house just as her mother is done and they head to school with an air of dread between Mato and Yuu.
Well, this episode sure had lots of little surprises and development. Great fun to watch and my brain is still pondering how its all going to conclude in the end.
The episode starts with us finally being able to see Strength as she drags Chariot’s decapitated body to a great pit before tossing it in. All around, we see Black Gold Saw’s eye observing Strength as she does this. Sadly, that’s the only time we see Strength this episode and she didn’t even do much. At least her character design is good too.
This post is meant to highlight 3 different things. Firstly, I’ll like to thank all the readers of InteresSOAP for allowing us to reach 10k total views!!! It’s not that much of a landmark but something that we’re rather proud of. So I’m very grateful for that. Also, at the bottom of this post, I put a short explanation for the problems that many no doubt have encountered recently on the blog regarding pictures in my posts. However, the main purpose is of course, Black Rock Shooter.
I was really looking forward to this episode of Black Rock Shooter for more doses of emotional battles and symbolism. It’s such a wonderful way to end a horrible week by watching anime you like, isn’t it? Thank goodness this episode didn’t disappoint and I hope Black Rock Shooter will never disappoint. Because it’s only 8 episodes long and any disappointments would pretty much ruin the whole show and not just a small arc.
Now, onto the episodic. To follow up on what happened at the end of episode 2, it seems Kagari just simple fell asleep after becoming all dere dere. According to Yomi, she is slowly recovering of her dependence on her although it’s not confirmed if she is truly no longer a yandere. However, it seems Yomi is now becoming an yandere as she is portrayed at being jealous of Mato and Yuu’s relationship, with them being childhood friends and all. So this might add a new spin to later episodes.
First of, I’ll like to apologize if this post seems rushed or sub-par (I’m not sure if it’ll be) but I’m typing this really late at night and I’m exhausted. But I really wanted to do this post so I thought why the hell not.
Ok, now, BLACK ROCK SHOOTER!!!!!!!!
I still think the graphics are pretty amazing and the plot thus far has been really engaging. Well, that’s to me of course as some are just plain confused at the plot and the action.
Picking off where Episode 1 left off, Episode 2 begins with Mato trying to go to the Summer Festival with Yomi as she’s trying to keep her word that they will become friends. However, our creepy yandere, Kagari, forces Yomi to stay at home with her and Mato goes home all depressed after waiting for 3 hours.
As stated in the post title, this is a first impression of the recently aired Black Rock Shooter anime. The first episode aired yesterday and I jumped straight onto WordPress the instant I was done with it. I’ve been waiting for this anime to air for a while now and that fact they decided to release it 1 month after all the others had aired to build hype didn’t help of course.
Truth to be told, I have no idea what the main concept of the plot is. Of course I can spout some random philosophical bullshit (which I have thought of), it mostly revolves around a mysterious girl known as Black Rock Shooter who seems to be a part of Mato Kuroi, a high schooler. In the OVA, Mato “becomes” Black Rock Shooter to find her friend, Yomi, who has been possessed by Dead Master, another spirit, much like Black Rock Shooter (I think). In the anime, the same seems to be happening except now with more characters and a slight variation to the plot.
