Learn Japanese with Anime: “Black Bullet” (Proficiency Level)

Webmaster Review

82% Brilliant

The storyline ends with half-hearted impressions. Character design is good. The overwhelming decadent black world view is excellent. The genocide of children and the self-harm of Midori clearly represent the world view. The world view is wonderful. The drawing is well-moved and stable, and the level is high.

The theme song is very very cool without any complaints and is the best match with the world view of this anime. The sound is very good with a black atmosphere that matches the world view. OP is cool production and drawing without complaint.

2. Synopsis

In the year 2021, mankind is ravaged by the epidemic of Gastrea, a parasitic virus, and is forced to live within the Monolith walls, which are created from Varanium: a metal that is able to subdue Gastrea. Soon, children who were born with the Gastrea virus and obtained superhuman abilities as a result, are discovered and dubbed “Cursed Children”. Due to the Gastrea virus’ intervention, the Cursed Children could only be female. Civil Securities are formed to specialize fighting against Gastrea, operating with the pair of an Initiator, who are cursed children, and a Promoter, serving to lead the cursed children. Ten years after the epidemic, Rentarō Satomi, a high school student who is also a Promoter in Tendō Civil Security Agency owned by his childhood friend Kisara Tendō, along with his Initiator, Enju Aihara, conducts missions to prevent the destruction of the Tokyo Area and the world.

3. Proficiency can Learn Japanese with This Anime

Because the genre of the work is S / F, the appearance rate of political and military terms is high, and the Japanese language difficulty of this anime is extremely high. Each character’s way of speaking is relatively stable, but it should be noted that the way of speaking of Enju and Kisara is a little characteristic. In particular, Enju has an old-fashioned way of speaking, unlike the appearance. Just in case, let me give you a conclusion. If you are an advanced learner of Japanese who are not inconvenienced in daily conversation and business conversation in Japan, you can try to study Japanese with this animation.
