Black Bullet aired on Japanese TV in the Spring 2014 anime season. The series, which adapts Shiden Kanzaki and Saki Ukai’s light novel series of the same name, was animated by studios Kinema Citrus and Orange. Masayuki Kojima (Monster) directed the series, which featured character designs by Chiho Umishima and scripts by Tatsuhiko Urahata.

Sentai Filmworks describes the series as follows:

The Gastrea virus spreads like wildfire, causing each infected host to rapidly mutate, gaining new powers and abilities with every stage of development, even while they continue to attack, kill, and infect multiple new hosts. Unable to fight a pandemic enemy that turns defenders into adversaries, the shocked remnants of the human race are forced to retreat into cities surrounded by giant monoliths made of Varanium, one of the few materials that can stop the Gastrea.

Now mankind’s last hope lies in the Cursed Children: young girls infected with the virus who have managed to retain a hold on their humanity. Paired with a partner, they alone have the strength to take on a Gastrea in one-on-one combat. But the very thing that gives them power is a ticking time bomb, so even as they protect humanity, they are also feared and shunned. Are they girls? Monsters? Or mankind’s ultimate salvation?

Sentai Filmworks will releaseĀ Black Bullet on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 27.
