Black Rock Shooter

I've stumpled across some (fan made) pictures of Black Shooter's Main character and was fascinated. It took me a while to find out to which anime she belongs. But now I've found it, or better to say I've found out the anime isn't the real origin, but there is one OVA about her.



There are two different storylines which are taking place in different dimensions.

The story of the first one is like taking your dog to a walk, only that it's more exciting to watch your dog. It's just some random high school meets another random high school girl. I could go into detail , but I would spoiler this whole storyline within two sentences. The second plot is also quite random and leaves you wonder why this happens...after 50 minutes you are still asking yourself this question.



While there isn't anything extraordinary to say about the first plot's animation, the second plot is offering some quite nice backgrounds. There is also some action going on, but the fights are nothing above average. They are not bad, but you've seen dozens of better ones.



There is no speech in the fighting dimension, just some wind and sounds of destruction or clashing metal. That's not so bad and it could be worse, like brabbling schoolgirls. Oh wait...

The music wasn't able to substitute the storytelling and grap my emotion.



Altough I've found this, because I've searched for a certain character, this is a fail.

Because of this it's also my biggest disappointment, the design for the main character is quite interesting. That was it. Forget the rest, maybe you can spare one half mercy point for the ending.



To sum it up in one word: BORING!

I would recommend you just skip this anime and go on to something else, instead of wasting your time.

3/10 story
5/10 animation
4/10 sound
2.5/10 characters
3.5/10 overall

Woah, you are one critical fellow, even he good ones receive max 3-3 1/2 stars from you.

You could try Fullmetal Alchemist / Fullmetal Alchemist : Brotherhood

I agree that the anime itself wasn't that great, I actually agree with this scoring, it's also sad that this score is relatively average for what I've watched.Believe me, it's not much better when you understand the plot better, the plot is still shallow and only with a surface depth.

Thank you for this information,

if this would be the only big flaw I would consider rewatching the anime to see if it's better from that point of view. But well...the rest isn't appealing to me either, so I guess in this case I will leave it be.

There is only 1 plot, the 2 plots as you call them occur at different times. The one in the high school is effectively the first half of the OVA, the one in the other dimension is the second half of the plot. If you take it as that, the plot makes perfect sense.It's strange though, many people are confused by it, others have even thought that the two places are completely unrelated...the plot is very simplistic I found...
