First thing first Sumire is the best character in the anime. Now that this is out of the way, Black Bullet is about Rentarou and His partner Enju who fight against Gastrea. Along with their battle against Gastrea they had to fight humans. I really liked Rentarou as a character and his character design. Its amazing how much responsibility they laid on him even though he’s just a boy. I also like how caring he is. The anime was both intense and endearing. The story was very emotional. The fight were every intense. Its one of the most well written stories I’ve came across. Oh and the science there was epic. It would be a huge spoiler if I said anything more so I’ll leave it at that. Black Bullet is a great anime so I do recommend it.

Overall Rating: 9/10
