The official site of noitaminA’s soon-to-air Black Rock Shooter anime series reveals the first PV straight from the front page – highschool girls are seen in standard and stylish weapon equipped grunge fashion.
Below one can see some refined artwork of the upcoming highly anticipated series, alongside some screencaps of the PV, which is (quite obviously) exclusively airing through the official site (another link in case you missed it…). The PV features our Shooter sitting atop rubble in the distorted dimension – it then offers us a compilation of assorted scenes showcasing our characters in their ultra adorable seifukus as regular school girls, yet also as the ruthless killers they come to be (most of them anyways).
Black Rock Shooter first made its animated appearance as an OVA – the very avant garde atmosphere stuck many as innovative and incredible, yet the story was not well developed, receiving mixed reviews. It was a partial slice of life in some respects, yet boasted immense action unique to the series as the characters and weapons who play out these heightened roles are of an ingenious artistic inspiration.
The OVA’s synopsis is as follows:
Mato Kuroi just got accepted into a junior high school. On the first day of school, a peculiar one of her classmates catches her eye – Yomi Takanashi. The two charmingly different students meet – the innocent, cute, and naive, Mato, in contrast to the much more mature and refined Yomi.
Some are hoping for a continuation of the OVA, whilst others, hope for a fresh take on the tale.
