Black Bullet – 12

「クライシス・ポイント」 (Kuraishisu Pointo)
“Crisis Point”

This week’s episode sadly reminded me about just how bad of a train wreck this anime was during its first few episodes. Wacky pacing and awkward scene cuts aside, I think the writers tried to stuff way too much in a single episode.

「境界線の石碑」 (Kyoukaisen no Sekihi)
“The Monument on the Border”

“Moonlit Night of Silence, Sky of Dawn”

I absolutely loved this week’s episode. Even with some awkward moments that could have been made so much better with just slight changes, I wouldn’t mind if the rest of the series kept up with this pattern.

Black Bullet – 02

「狂気の仮面」 (Kyouki no Kamen)
“Mask of Madness”

While the pacing felt a bit off and the story couldn’t decide if it wanted to build our emotions or blow us away with awesome action scenes, I must say that I enjoyed this second episode a lot more than the first.
