Black Bullet continues with another action packed ep!
Enju is also back and kicking ass, and Rentaro is pretty invincible too.
Here’s my review.
Enju returns to school only to be hated by her classmates and friends. It’s sad to see how fast they turned on her and now pretty much want her dead. They know nothing about her but they just hate her and want her out. Rentaro comes to the rescue once again, telling her it’s time they leave and change schools. Enju isn’t really up for that as she’s spent time making friends here and really likes the people at the school, but as it’s pretty clear now, they don’t like her anymore. Fucking kids… I hope they all die a screaming death.
But before they can leave via front gate, a helicopter lands to take them away; Kisara calls Rentaro to tell him they’ve found that Gastrea and are sending him and Enju into take it out. On their way out there the chopper pilot notices something flying below them, and guess what it’s a fucking huge spider using it’s webs to make a wing suit type thing to fly around. Enju jumps out and takes the fight down to the ground, killing the Gastrea pretty quick. As it blows apart, a box comes flying out. Oh, oh? Is this the box they’re looking for? Picking up the box, Rentaro is suddenly face to face with our masked enemy, Kagetane Hiruko and his daughter Kohina. Another fight breaks out leaving Rentaro in an impossible situation. In total he’s shot three times, once in the right shoulder and twice in the upper chest, but he’s also run through with both of Kohina’s swords. We’re talking stabbed through twice in the guts. Now I don’t know much about where all your organs are placed, but I’m pretty sure your kidneys are down there somewhere along with something else important, so I’m surprised that he somehow survived that. Oh and to top it off, he falls from a cliff into the raging river down below.
Waking up in a hospital a while later, Kisara is there waiting for Rentaro; he’s been out for over a day but somehow survived. I’m sure that’ll be explained at some point, but it’s pretty strange how he was able to survive a beating like that. Kisara tells him that Kagetane has taken the case and is in preparations for summoning a Stage Five Gastrea, which is really big and very bad. Pretty much if he’s able to do this, it’s the end for everyone. Needless to say the government is launching a strike team into the forest to find and stop Kagetane before it’s too late. Rentaro is obviously in on this as he’s not letting Kagetane get away that easily, and maybe because he’s gotten his ass kicked by him twice now, so it’s payback time too. I liked how Enju was there too with him, showing that she really does care for Rentaro as much as he cares for her; they’re a great team and their chemistry works well. Although Kisara is still the best girl, even though she hasn’t done much yet.
Now it’s lock ‘n load time! The strike team is assembled and they’re ready to move out. In a large group of CH-47 Chinook choppers, the team is sent into the forest to find Kagetane and stop him. Rentaro and Enju run into some trouble though as they come face to face with a massive Stage Four Gastrea and have to end up running for their lives. There sure are some crazy Gastrea out in the woods. If a Stage Four was that big, then that means a Stage Five is just crazy big then.
While in the woods they run into Shougen Ikuma’s Initiator: Kayo Senju who has become separated from Shougen and is injured too. Enju shows some jealously here as she doesn’t like Rentaro being so friendly with other girls, but seriously she was injured and bleeding, I think anyone would want to help that person out if they had the chance. We learn a bit about Kayo and Shougen here too, as he’s determined to not let anyone get to Kagetane first, even going as far to tell Kayo to kill others on their team just so he can be the first to get there and take him on. Wow not really thinking there as if he gets into a tough spot and no one else is alive to help him out, then what? But oh well. Helping fix Kayo up, the three of them head out to Shougen who has radioed in saying they’ve found Kagetane and are going to take him out. Sadly the ep ends there and we’re left until next week to see the face off between Kagetane and everyone coming to get him. I’m sure it’s going to be a good battle and there will be a high body count too, but we’ll have to wait till next week to see how that goes down.
Overall I liked this ep as it brought out some point about Rentaro that we haven’t been informed about yet. Something happened to him 10 years ago that required him to be operated on, maybe that’s how he got his invincibility or maybe he’s actually got some Gastrea power in him too? Hmm, well we’ll have to see how that pans out in the coming eps. For now let’s take a look at some screen shots from the ep.
So it was a good ep and I enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to the next ep too as I’m sure there is going to be a good battle! Up next I’ll have my review for the awesome ep 3 of No Game, No Life; I’ll also have my long overdue review for ep 2 of Knights of Sidonia out soon, don’t worry.
Until next time!
