Ok so my post about Mekakucity Actors wasn’t really a rant, and was more just me voicing my disappointment. Well I found something else that disappointed me. Just finished the anime Black Bullet and I feel like it had much more potential (just like I felt with Mekakucity Actors, but in a different way). I’ve noticed that I really don’t like seeing anime fall short of what it could have been, it just feels so wasteful.
Now for those who haven’t watched Black Bullet, it’s basically about Rentaro Satomi, who is a civil officer that hunts these parasitic creatures called Gastrea in future Tokyo… with his little girl sidekick Enju. When I saw her first introduced I realized – oh, its one of THOSE anime. Apparently having badass civil officers, post apocalyptic world, monstrous creatures, and decent major characters wasn’t enough, so they decided to attach superhuman little girls to the plot. That’s where I take issue.
