Overall, I don't think Black Rock Shooter was fit to be an OVA. It's just too compact. It would have been more refreshing to see this drawn out as a TV series, with an emphasis on the aftermath what fans will see in this OVA, as well as the development of Mato, Yomi Takanashi, and Yuu. So much more could have been done to make this a 13 or 26 episode classic. It just wasn't meant to be.
That being said, for an OVA, this is enjoyable for the art, the sound effects, and the voice acting of Kana Hanazawa. And to think that this all started with a song by Miku Hatsune, of all Vocaloids...
The main protagonist makoto is cheerful whereas her other self BLACK ROCK SHOOTER is melancholy I really like the
melancholy side of her.
The plot is quite interesting and the good part is that it's not a long series.
Both the OVA and anime were great, though, the story didn't leave that much of an impression. I think what makes this anime really great is just the fact that Huke's characters were animated and the battles between them were action-packed. There were a lot of characters left out so, hopefully, there will be another season or OVA.StevOmaru rated 9.00:
Very good plot, the OVA does a very good job of connecting the two worlds of the school life and black rock world together in an intriguing and compelling way. My only complaint would have to be that this wasn't meant to be just an OVA, it felt very cramped and I think there is a lot of plot lines here that could of been expanded on in a anime series.MisaSasekage rated 9.00:
The OVA was pretty good. The fights were pretty nice. The animations and designs were pretty good too. Though I think it would've been nice if the characters spoke. I also watched the 2012 anime series. I enjoyed the series more than the single OVA, because everything was fleshed out a bit more, I wish it wasn't such a short series though. The characters designs looked pretty cool. And I think they balanced the school aspect of the characters and counterparts fighting quite well. The ending was pretty good. And for such a short show, I'm still amazed at how good it turned out to be. Amongst all the original offerings that also finished this season, I can honestly say that BRS probably had one of the more satisfying endings. In terms of the characters, this television adaptation gave the characters some much-needed backbone. Unlike the OVA, which only had time to focus on Yomi/Dead Master, I really enjoyed getting to see the other characters like Strength and Black Gold Saw get some well-deserved screen time. Overall, I think Black Rock Shooter is a show that everyone should watch at least once. With its use of symbolism and the small messages that are scattered throughout the series, there’s always something for you to keep your eye out for. Combined with a strong seiyuu cast that were able to flesh out the characters through emotion to the amazing music that only amplified the emotional in every single scene, Black Rock Shooter turned into one of the best shows of the season. So if you haven’t watched Black Rock Shooter yet, I strongly suggest you give it a shot!AnGeeChan rated 8.25:
The desingn of Black Rock Shooter and its world is awesomly done. The plot is good - Mato's school life with their relationships and its connection to the Black Rock Shooter world.I like how the show tell us about accepting the happiness along with being hurt. That balance is important. The OVA is good too.
