“BLACK BULLET”

HOUSTON, April 25, 2014 – When the entire human race is at stake, the cursed shall rise to defend it in Sentai Filmworks’ latest acquisition, Black Bullet. From original creator Shiden Kanzaki, this action packed sci-fi series is directed by Masayuki Kojima (Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, Bottom Biting Bug) with series composition by Tatsuhiko Urahata (Fighting Spirit, Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere), music by Shiro Sagisu (Nadia – The Secret of Blue Water, Neon Genesis Evangelion) and animation production by Kinema Citrus (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Yuyushiki).

No longer a boy yet not quite a man, Rentaro has already led a tough life. It’s the year 2031 and ten years have passed since his parents – along with most of mankind – were killed by an alien parasitical virus known as Gastrea. As a second year student at Magata High School, Rentaro, along with his childhood friends, Kisara Tendo and Enju Ahari, have formed the Tendo Civil Security to tirelessly fight against Gastrea. Born as one of the “Cursed Children” infected with the virus, giving her superhuman abilities and the power to control the virus, as well, Enju is Rentaro’s Model Rabbit Initiator.  Operating as a pair with Enju as Initiator, and Rentaro as Promoter, serving to lead the cursed children, they must together work as a team to dismantle evil brought on by Gastrea. Can this team save humanity as they take on a secret mission to prevent the Tokyo Area’s destruction?  We can only hope as we watch with anticipation in BLACK BULLET!

Black Bullet will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
