Our Review : Black Rock Shooter Overall is one of the better animes of this year. This series shines through its short, great action sequences and well played out character conflicts. The series is a spin-off but it also uses the same characters from the OVA. The only real flaw of this series is the story. It flows through character Arc's similar to a manga series. Although understandable it's very confusing at time.
