Black Bullet #11 — I Believe What I Choose to Believe

June 17th, 2014


Because otherwise, it’s just yet another epsiode of sitting on his ass as people blather at him.


What a strange episode. I mean, the clown was obviously dead, he fell in a lake. And then Rentaro fell into water too, so he must have also been dead. Therefore, he must have gone on a trip into the afterlife before wandering back out again. There were even packs of 2/3rds of a cerberus at the lake/gate to the underworld. And yes, that would make that segment a lot more interesting than just stumbling upon them living like hobos in the forest, chatting with them for an evening, and then leaving. Besides, he already did that with Samurai Beardo earlier, cause The Gov’ment and The Man be trodding on Team Teenage Buddies and Little Girls for doing the right thing!

The main swarming that they’ve spent the last two or three weeks pissing on about and recruiting various people for? Over in about three minutes, one if you count how long was spent on Team Scooby doing one attack against each random generic insect. Two were “shoot gun,” two were “punch,” and two were “don’t show up for this montage.” More time and effort was spent on literally a random encounter with dogs leading into the aforementioned trip to the netherworld. Fun.

8 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

    Light novel writing is so predictable. The moment the commander appeared a few episodes back, I knew he’d be up to no good. Can’t have an adult with a penis who’s not directly with the goodies actually be competent and/or on the side of justice! Not the first time the show has pulled this off either with that bodyguard guy from the last arc.

    At least they upped their animation game a tiny teensy little bit for the action. Too bad the show still looks shit outside of that and so totally lacks the visual polish you’d expect from the studio. Here’s hope they’ll be back on track with the Yuyushiki folks working on Barakamon.

      I don’t even remember what happened to him. Did he just skulk off after some number being thrown at him?

      • ZakuAbumi says:

        Was told by Rentaro to go away and never show his face again. And so he went away and never showed his face again. And we know he won’t because he didn’t fall in a lake. Perhaps Rentaro should just tell Kagetane to go away, that seems to do the trick.

        Also, this template nonsense never stops, does it?

          I used to have a script that would flag me when I forgot to edit it. A WordPress update broke it and now it’s all on my fallible meatbrain.

    Is it possible that you don’t know how to swim?

  • anise_punter says:

    We may have to face an awful truth – that someone, somewhere, has designed a clown that is not water-soluble. This could have serious consequences for the environment.

  • Anon says:

    He is perhaps to heavy to swim, but then. Did he need to breath? His Neck is not Human, his face perhaps is not human, too. Just Eyes like Rentaro and Jaws and so on…

    He just walked from the ground of the See, onto land
