Black Rock Shooter Cosplay: Black Rock Shooter (Sera) Cosplay 02 SEP 2012

The energy-charged, once off OVA project, Black Rock Shooter graces Cosplay Sundae today, with a cosplay from Sera bringing Black Rock Shooter to life!

Black Rock Shooter is a pretty strange anime project considering it is based on a song and its accompanying music video by group Supercell as well some illustrations by artist Huke. Still, the dangerous Gothic warrior designs appear to be quite a hit with cosplayers and we have been seeing Black Rock Shooter cosplays popping up all over the Net now.

Black Rock Shooter, known as BRS or Rock for short, is the eponymous character of the franchise. She is depicted with her hair in two pigtails, one longer than the other, and she has two scars on her torso and her hip. Her left eye burns with a bright blue flame. She wears a pair of knee high black boots, a black bikini top, black short shorts with a light gray belt, and a black hooded jacket with a long back with a white star on the back. She carries two weapons, a rock cannon that can fire rapid shots or more powerful charge shots, and a crooked katana.

In the OVA, she is a resident of the Other World who merges with Mato in order to rescue Yomi who was possessed by Dead Master. In the TV series, she is Mato’s darken persona who fights against other inhabitants, regardless of its impact on the other world. In Innocent Soul, she resides in the world of Hazama, a place between Heaven and Earth, and her job is to purify stagnant souls whose regrets caused them to become trapped in this realm and become demons that attack other souls. In the game, she is a clone of White Rock Shooter, created to help combat the alien invasion currently wiping out the human race. However, it takes this clone 16 years to mature in her chamber before awakening, too late to save humanity from destruction.

Review: Black Rock Shooter Anime | My Reviews 22 AUG 2011

Apart from some really energetic action pieces, not all that much else. Black Rock Shooter is a 50 minute long OVA released in 2010, directed by Shinobu Yoshioka and produced by animation house Ordet, based on a song of the same name by Supercell and its accompanying music video which featured illustrations from Huke.

Right. In other words, a story based on a song, which means there isn’t much to go on in terms of material then. The OVA tells the story of junior high school student Mato Kuroi, who befriends a girl name Yomi Takanashi. The story follows their daily lives in school as well as at their respective clubs, with Mato having joined the basketball team and Yomi the volleyball, as well as their ever increasing friendship as time passes.

In between the daily slice of life stuff, we get treated to a number of high energy, mysterious clashes between silent and unknown entities, in this case Black Rock Shooter and Dead Master, in a twisted world that is certainly not our own. These inter-spliced sequences continue until just before the end of the OVA, when after realising that their friendship is starting to drift apart as new friends get added into the circle, Yomi simply disappears.

An emotional Mato sets off to find her, and the tie to the mysterious Black Rock Shooter world is finally revealed.

There are enough visual clues to give you an idea of how the story might end, and outside of the exploration of the friendship between the two girls, there really isn’t all that much here. The fantastic encounters between Black Rock Shooter and Dead Master are silent and although the OVA concludes its story in a fairly satisfactory manner, it really won’t be begging you to come back and watch it again.

As for the animation, Ordet have done a fantastic job, churning out some beautiful scenery and character designs, switching effortless between our vibrant world and that of the oppressed and desolate world of Black Rock Shooter. The animation is fluid and energetic, and as a whole, everything just looks fantastic.

Similarly, the voice actors all do a great job and mention must be made of the fantastic soundtrack, from Ryo of Supercell, that accompanies the story, effortlessly controlling the pace and emotion of the scenes with each and every track.
