Black Rock Shooter designer and illustrator huke will release his first artbook in January of next year. The 240-page BLK book will feature illustrations from huke's work as creator of Black Rock Shooter and as character designer for the Steins;Gate game from 5pb. and Nitroplus.
A limited edition of the BLK art book will include a posable "figma BRSB" figurine. The figurine is of an original character "BRSB (Black Rock Shooter BEAST)" designed for the book's release. The limited edition will sell for 6,800 yen (about US$88)
The Black Rock Shooter franchise also inspired an original video anime, figures, and games. The artist ringo launched the Black Rock-chan four-panel manga in the inaugural issue of Kadokawa Shoten's 4-Koma Nano Ace magazine in March, and Sanami Suzuki (Net Ghost Pipopa) launched another Black Rock Shooter ~Innocent Soul~ manga in Young Ace magazine in June. A new television anime series will air in Fuji TV's Noitamina time slot in Japan in January.
Most recently, the anime and game distributor NIS America confirmed that it licensed Black Rock Shooter the Game for the PSP platform in North America and Europe.
