I’m back again for Black Bullet reviews! Hopefully you’ve been keeping up to date as we’ve had a new loli introduced to the gang, that being Tina Sprout; she’s a former Model Owl Initiator who after being defeated by Rentaro, has now joined the Tendo Security Services and works along side Kisara. Back story over, let’s jump into this review!

The ep starts off at night out at the Monolith, we’ve got our run of the mill army guy doing a patrol when he suddenly hears something. Looking around he spots a huge ass Gastrea suddenly smashing up against the wall. It sprays some white goo all over the wall and before the soldier can attempt to call for help he’s attacked and killed by smaller Gastrea that have climbed up the walls. So that’s the set up for bad things later on.

In a shocking turn of events, Rentaro has agreed to be the teacher for that group of lolis seen in ep 2. I’m not sure why, having Enju and Tina is enough to deal with, but apparently he wants that loli action even more so. He’s brought Kisara along in support but even she’s having a hard time keeping up with questions from the lolis regarding the size of her boobs. Yeah lolis ask strange questions these days. Anyways, their teaching session is cut short by the arrival of none other than Seitenshi herself. This wows the lolis as they’ve never met the ruler of the Tokyo area, but Seitenshi isn’t there to talk with the lolis, she’s there to seeing Rentaro and Kisara.

We’ve got a situation here: Monolith 32 is being slowly corroded away and in six days it will lost it’s magnetic ability, thus opening a way for the Gastrea to enter the city and kill everyone. Another Monolith is being built (wow, just like that) but it’ll take 9 days to complete, by that time there won’t be a point as everyone will be dead. To add fuel to the fire, there are about 2000 Gastrea hanging around outside waiting for the Monolith to go down so they can rush the city. Faced with the impossible, Seitenshi asks Rentaro so assemble a team to fight the Gastrea along side the military, of course Rentaro will be leader of the team. His mission, should be choose to accept it, will be to hold off the Gastrea long enough for the Monolith to be competed and put in place. No pressure.

Back at home Enju and Tina are waiting for him all dressed up as characters from Enju’s favorite anime Tenchu Girls. Tina also wins my heart over by the fact she can make good pizza. Now that’s a quality I admire in a girl. Tina’s a keeper now! Later that night Tina and Rentaro have a long discussion about the coming events; Tina also asks if she can call Rentaro “Onii-san” (which I’m sure you all know means). The next day Kisara comes to pick Tina up and we have a funny scene where Tina talks about her “fun time” with Rentaro last night. Yeah he’s gets an earful from everyone and Kisara even threatens to call the police too. Yeah, sleeping with lolis can backfire at times too

Meanwhile the city isn’t taking kindly to the New Gastrea Law which is supposed to be good for the Cursed Children, but people don’t like the lolis like everyone else and are very against them. This is a background event that’s happening as Rentaro and Tina are out on a date looking for people to join his team to fight the Gastrea. While out and around, Rentaro shows Tina some nice place, she tries on a nice dress, they win a prize at the near impossible crane game and even run into another Cursed Child who is begging for money. Strangely enough her eyes are wrapped in bandages, something Rentaro questions her about. Turns out she poured lead into them because her mother (who has since abandoned her) hated her red eyes. Ugh, I can’t even imagine doing something like that.

Moving right along Rentaro and Tina reach the house of Katagiri and his sister Yudzuki Tamaki, his business there is to ask them if they want to join his team to fight the Gastrea. Challenging him to a fight to see if Katagiri will join them. Of course Rentaro and Tina clean house and both Katagiri and Yudzuki join the team. The ep ends there with the team being assembled and ready to set out to fight the Gastrea and protect the city!

All in all this was a pretty standard ep and not much happened; it was also like a filler with set up for events to come, so it wasn’t as serious or action packed at all. I’m hoping the next few eps will lay on the action as it’s looking like a big battle is in the works. We’ll have to wait till next week to see how that all turns out though!

Let’s take a look at a few screen shots from the ep!

That bring this review to a close now! Thanks for reading it and I’ll cya next time for the ep 8 review of No Game No Life. I’m going to aim to have that up later today (as it’s early Wednesday morning now) so expect that at some point today. I’m still waiting for FFF to release Date A Live II ep 7 so when it’s out I’ll have my review up too. This Thursday expect the ep 4 review for WIXOSS as I’m going to be trying to get more of those reviews out in the coming days; I might even get the ep 5 review out over the weekend too. Friday will be the ep 8 review of Knights of Sidonia, and I expect that one to be an action packed up too. I’ve got no bonus pic this time but I’ll make it up to you with some dazzling No Game No Life bonus pics in the next review. That’s it for me then, cya in the next post!
