Anime Vice News

Ready for some Black Rock Shooter OVA screens?

Dark, sexy anime? Gimme!


Everything we have heard so far about the upcoming Black Rock Shooter OVA looks absolutely droolworthy to me, from characters to art to storyline. Of course, I admit I want to know more about Black Rock Shooter in general. What is her origin? Does she have any relationship to Vocaloid goddess Hatsune Miku, even a tenuous one? Can I get my arm guns retrofitted like hers so I can be a bigger badass?
 
Whoops, got distracted there. Sorry. Back to the OVA ... Danny Choo has shared not only new screenshots from it, but also a new character named Yuu, who is bound to be someone's waifu by the end of the day. She is a friend of the main character, Mato, and will be voiced by Kana Asumi (Toradora, Angel Beats). We know that these real life girls have alternate personas in a dark world, which is where we meet characters like Black Rock Shooter, Dead Master and more.
 
The OVA will be screened at the upcoming Wonder Festival on July 25th to coincide with the official release. Are you interested in checking it out?

I can't wait for this anime. I already have a nice PS3 theme downloaded to keep me in check. I don't know much on the story but the art is very interesting and what I'm looking forward to seeing in action.

Been waiting for months, I believe it will be quite the surprise of the summer:)

This will be interesting since this is base off of someones art work and not some manga or story.

@Yui Asakawa 
 
The artist of Black Rock Shooter Huke made this character either before or around the same as Hatsune Miku was made, but yes people always call her a Hatsune lookalike(abit the same as people always saying that digimon is a ripoff of pokemon even though its pretty much the same case) .
 
Also i have been waiting forever for this, first time i saw Black Rock Shooter art i have been in love the art style and character design(so much that i still regret not saying "to hell with savings and paying bills I WANT THAT FIGURE!!!" when i saw the first figure of her for sale).

Definetly excited to see this, always liked the artstyle and there's so much good fanmade stuff out there. The Black Rock Shooter song is also one of my all time anime-related favorites. Listening to this Band Edition as I'm typing this. 
 
The animation version figurine looks awesome too, I don't think I'll be able to put off reserving it for much longer :3

Agreed...there is a boatload of great fanmade stuff related to BRS. I have been waiting for this franchise/concept to get it's own anime show and soon that glorious day will arrive! n_n

 Soon we shall experience Black Rock Shooter in a new way....it's own anime OVA!

I've heard nothing about this but then agian I'm old and don't pay attention to Anime News as much as I used to.  I must say though I'm now interested in finding more on the art and the OAV.
