境界線の石碑 – The Monument on the Border
In a desperate bid to continue with my procrastination movement, what better way to pass the time (that really should be spent studying for exams) than to catch up with backlogged Black Bullet reviews? Having left this train wreck of a series for so many months, I almost forgot how bad it was. Of course, it took all but two seconds of this episode of Black Bullet to refresh my memory.
It was a loli bonanza with the new school that Rentarou and Kisara set up to teach the outer district lolis. And the loli party did not stop there, because we got the formal introduction of yet another loli, Yuzuki. For the avid lolicons, Black Bullet sure is a dream come true. Unfortunately, I am not a lolicon so it is rather difficult for me to appreciate the abundance of lolis.
What I did appreciate however (wow shocker, didn’t think I’d be able to appreciate anything that Black Bullet has to offer) was hearing Hosoya Yoshimasa and Kayano Ai this episode, playing Tamaki and the blind loli respectively. The blind loli’s appearance was to remind us viewers that there was still an anti-cursed children campaign going on, with the entire city banning together to exile the cursed children and show their resentment towards the Gastrea. Considering that one of the Monoliths is going to be destroyed in about four days, that resentment is going to be hit pretty hard with some 2,000 Gastreas streaming into the city if Rentarou and his loli gang don’t do something about it. And that is where Hoso’s character comes in – both him and his loli have been recruited to help Rentarou fight the possible Gastrea attack.
Now that Rentarou has gathered his “army”, it is a countdown to the real fight with the Gastrea. Go lolis, here’s me cheering you on~
