Hey, how’s it goin’ everyone? This is The Anime Man!

And Merry Christmas to each and every one of you that is reading this (or isn’t reading this, I don’t know…). It’s been a pretty crazy year, but there is only a week left to go! And what a fantastic year it has been!

If you guys are subscribed to my Youtube channel (which I highly recommend you subscribe to if you already haven’t), then you would know that I am in Japan right now for work, and I have been reaaaaaallllly busy. And Christmas Day was definitely no exception.

I unfortunately have been falling behind on this current season’s anime and are thus falling behind on reviews, but I will get to that as soon as I can so hang on for just a minute longer guys!

Concerning Christmas presents, I didn’t really get much (except maybe the money that I made from the work I did… which isn’t really the most rewarding thing in the world). But for one thing, I did get a surprise present from the stats of this site, telling me that we just reached 200,000 pageviews!!
That is just freaking awesome guys, and I thank each and every one of you! This site is only just beginning to get larger and greater and I hope all of you guys join me on that fabulous journey!

Anyways, I think I blabbed on for a bit too long. To sum it all up, have a wonderful Christmas and I will see you guys again very soon!

Jyane!! :3

Black☆Rock Shooter ~ Review

Black Rock Shooter ~ Review

 “An epic tale that make you feel more human that you think you will ever be”

I have a feeling I have been saying this a lot in my recent reviews, but I absolutely love this series. Like the title puts it, Black Rock Shooter has a very strange tale of making the viewer feel very human. But I guess if you knew what the series is about, then you would nod in agreement. If you have ever seen this however, you would shake my hand vigorously in agreement.

The story takes place between two different universes; the first universe is much like ours and consists of a group of schoolgirls living their lives normally. In this universe is a girl called Mato Kuroi, who becomes friends with a girl called Yomi Takanashi. As the two get closer together, at the same time they grow further apart; carrying struggles and becoming jealous of Mato long-term friend, Yu. The second consists of a strange girl called Black Rock Shooter, a black haired girl who continues to fight anything that stands in her way. In this world, Black Rock Shooter meets many girls like her; no emotion, and their only instinct is to fight. One day, Yomi disappears and Mato is sent into a strange world, where she meets Black Rock Shooter. Now Mato must fight Black Rock Shooter  save her friend and to save herself from “the pain” that her and Black Rock Shooter have experienced.

The anime series is known for its intense action scenes and the extreme high quality of artwork and camera work

The Black Rock Shooter franchise began with a variety of illustrations by Ryohei “Huke” Fuke, which gained the attention of Supercell, a Japanese music group, that created a song influence to these illustrations, which gained high popularity throughout the Internet. A 50-minute OVA (original video animation) was created, which ultimately sparked the anime series franchise. The anime series became very successful, the series being later adapted into manga series and a game. The anime series was also awarded for technical achievement in broadcast animation at the 65th Motion Picture and Television Engineering Society of Japan Awards in 2012.

Black Rock Shooter deal with such themes as pain, loneliness, human frailty, human weakness and the importance of maintaining strong bonds between friends and people. This is one of those anime’s that definitely makes you feel warm inside and will really make you reconsider the relationships that you hold between your friends and loved ones. As the anime series is both entertaining, exciting and gives us all a life moral to live by, I rank this very high on my list and I definitely recommend this series if you ave not already watched it.


The Final Judgement:

Recommendation Level: 5/5 – Strongly Recommended

Final Score: 8.5/10
