There doesn't seem to be an announcement about a second season.

Barely any anime gets a second season after a long period of time so I'd suggest to drop your hopes for it.

If you want to get over your disappointment for BB not continuing another season, then you should go watch Spice and Wolf.

You never know, but I feel like Black Bullet has faded away into obscurity shortly after airing, I never hear anything about it so I highly doubt it will ever get a season 2.

It doesn't seem likely. DVD/BD sales were mediocre (averaging 2,567 per video volume). Sequel series typically turn in a lower sales volume, so any production committee member investing for the home video rights would be looking to other committee members to pick up a larger percentage of the costs to avoid losing money.

There are a few other places that money can come from: Merchandising , streaming , and except for original anime, the publisher of the source material.

The first normally only applies to a series that is either "toyetic" (essentially a long ad for a company's toy line). For most other series, the series in question has to itself be successful for the merchandising to be. One could also include game licensing in this factor, unless the anime was itself based on a game. As such, this doesn't really apply to the series.

Streaming being a factor is normally only a "tilt the scale" factor. The anime has to be at least near break-even, but substantially more popular outside Japan. Black Bullet doesn't seem to have been received much better on CR than inside Japan (just read the episode comments), so that factor appears to be out.

The last hope is if it substantially increased the circulation of the original source material. The manga ended in 2014, so that isn't a factor. Although I see no confirmation the light novels have ended, the last one was also released in Japan in 2014. (2014 was the year the anime aired).

I don't recall any young boys of note in Black Bullet. The "Cursed Children" could only be female.
