Black bullet is literally a stupid version of Attack on Titan.
"I will kill all the titans"
"I will kill all the gastrea"
It’s the same fucking story.
Except that, y’know, Black Bullet is actually good.
And, well, its characters aren’t 1-dimensional cardboard cutouts.
Oh, and Rentaro isn’t a complete and utter shitbag.
And, while this is purely subjective, Black Bullet is actually enjoyable unlike SnK, which alternates between “Oh, this is cool” and “Oh for the love of Christ, this sucks.”
Though, I can’t help but question what makes this a ‘stupid version of Attack on Titan.’
Humanity on the brink of extinction? Yeah, AoT definitely thought that totally original concept up.
Giant ‘monsters’ being the cause of Humanities struggle? Shit, can’t think of any other series that has that concept. Also, obligatory time to point out D’struggle is real.
The fact that both series has Humans that are like the monsters that have fucked them over? Oh man, no other series has done that. Shit, I bet Tite Kubo is gonna rip-off of that concept and, like, give Ichigo Hollow powers somehow. Can you imagine? A Shinigami with the powers of Hollows, one of their sworn enemies? The only thing crazier would be if there was a Shinigami with Quincy powers, but there’s NO way that could even happen or be possible.
I could go on, and on about with my not-so witty sarcasm, but I’d be wasting my time.
Fact: AoT isn’t the most original shit, and Black Bullet isn’t a ‘stupid version’ of it.
Fact: I’d be surprised if SnK/AoT’s author didn’t get some inspiration Francisco de Goya’s painting The Colossus. You know, that work of art with that big, naked guy who was towering over lots of dead humans with his fists raised while horses ran away.
This is my first time seeing someone white knight for an anime.
