LESSON TO ALL POTENTIAL WRITERS EVERYWHERE!

So your big chance has come, and you're getting something published and into mainstream release. Let me give you a little piece of advice.

If you think you have a deep, meaningful, insightful story to tell that'll really teach lessons and make people question things....

YOU PROBABLY ACTUALLY DO NOT

It's nice to be able to finally rewatch some of the earlier episodes on the niconico channel, and in 720p too! I searched around the site a bit, though, and couldn't find any info-- anyone have any idea if/when/on what schedule they'll post the subsequent episodes after the first two?

They have now posted a release schedule for the episodes:
http://blog.niconico.com/information/2012/03/black-rock-shooter-now-on-niconicocom.html

As I expected, 2 episodes per week, released at 8:00 AM PDT on Fridays. (They list PST, but that is obviously an error).

That completes the series on April 4, 2012.

One surprise is that the episodes will only be available until May 6, 2012 at 8:00 AM.

The final episode.

So, it's BRS vs Insane BRS. Last girl standing match!





Here comes your death, bitch:



Hearts can merge like the worlds



Because we love you


True tea right there.

Yuu :(


Pain, the 4 letter word that brings sorrow to this world but remember that all hearts can merge.



Interesting anime. It didn't quite meet my expectations but still was great to watch. 8/10.

Lol all dem colours this ep man, so this must be what acid-trips feel like.

Overall not too bad, loved the fight scenes but the yuriness was a little too heavy for my tastes. Guess it can't be helped though with the cast full of pre-pubelescent girls dealing with mental issues...

So I watched the last episode....overall, the series was disappointing. I watched the original OVA a couple of months before watching the TV series, so I guess I had my hopes up too high. I can see that the show's creators were trying to aim for something grand, and I have to admit that I really liked the concept and premise behind the series. However, it's simply not possible to properly tell the story they wanted in the short time they had. I don't blame the team who worked on the show for only having 8 episodes to tell a story, but I think the show's ultimate downfall was that it was a bit too ambitious with its story. As a result, the TV series didn't leave an emotional impact on me in the end.

That's not to say it's a bad watch....I would recommend it to Black Rock Shooter fans. It had some decent visuals for the animation budge they had, and the first 3 or 4 episodes were fun to watch (I loved it when some of the characters would go outright psycho! I wanted more of THAT!!). If you're curious, it's certainly worth a try.

Give it 8/10 as well, its in the "fairly decent but lacks enough substance to be considered great" tier.

It's a flawed series, but I have to give it extra points for creativity.

I think you have to place this show in the magical girl category. Given that this genre was pretty much dead before Madoka Magica, it is great to see people trying to bring new life to it. I found the show to be very creative. The metaphorical dream world was interesting, and the fight scenes were excellent. The role of the warrior avatars was a nice twist as well.

On the other hand, there were a couple of big problems in my book. The story, especially the dream world, was not explained as well as it needed to be. I don't mind looking for answers, but trying to puzzle out what is going on is work. I can easily see why other people may find this show confusing. It can be a fine line between engaging your audience and annoying them. Also, the characters weren't very well developed, so the emotional ending fell a little flat, imo. I don't know if more episodes would have helped since I think these are story telling flaws.

Overall, I was pretty satisfied. I did enjoy watching, and I think there is some rewatchability here. I'd love to see in in HD.
7/10

i knew it wouldnt be great in the simple fact it was 8 eps long... anime generally isn't really good when it's that short.

personally i believe it takes 21 eps to properly set up and develop everything from plot to characters and 3 eps to end it without rushing.

naturally i understand that anime tkes a lot of time and money but hey i wouldn't pay if someone half asses it and expects a return

As I noted earlier, NicoNico.com is reposting the episodes in 720p. As of today, they have 4 of the 8, and will complete the series in the next couple of weeks.

Yeah, I saw that. I just haven't watched it in HD yet. And I'm not sure I want to rewatch the whole thing just yet. But thanks for the reminder, just the same.
