Average Rating

In the year 2021, a parasitic virus known as "Gastrea" infects humans and turns them into monsters. What is left of mankind now lives within the Monolith walls, walls that are made of Varanium, the only material that can hurt Gastrea. To counter the threat that the Gastrea pose, "Cursed Children"—female children whose bodies contain trace amounts of the virus which grant them superhuman abilities—officially called Initiators by the Tendo Civil Security, are given partners called Promoters, people who work to guide and protect the young Initiators. These teams of two are sent out on missions to fight the monsters created by the Gastrea virus and keep them at bay. Black Bullet revolves around the team of Enju Aihara, an Initiator, and Satomi Rentaro, a Promoter, as they go on missions to fight the growing threat of Gastrea in their hometown of Tokyo.

A pretty interesting show, lots and lots of lollies, but one i would like to recommend 🙂


So bad that it wasn’t even funny.


“I’m going to prison, aren’t I?”


Self-insert loli protecting fantasy. Can’t forget nondescript dark haired guy MC. Wish they adapted oppai getting porked against a fridge.


Not as bad as expected, but not as good as I would have liked. The premise is interesting, but I couldn’t get into a lot of the characters.


One of my first anime and it was great. The twist half-way through was AWESOME! The ending was really bad though.


Well, THAT’S not how the light novel ends.
