Black Bullet Light Novels Get Anime by Kinema Citrus

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Yūki Kaji, Rina Hidaka, Rikiya Koyama lead cast for story of boy in near-future world of viral parasite monsters

An anime adaptation of Shiden Kanzaki's Black Bullet novel was announced at the Dengeki Bunko Fall Festival 2013 event on Sunday.

Masayuki Kojima (Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, The Piano Forest) will be directing the anime at Kinema Citrus from scripts by Tatsuhiko Urahata (Saki Episode of Side A, Cardfight!! Vanguard). Senbon Umishima is designing the characters, while Shiro Sagisu (Bleach, Neon Genesis Evangelion) is composing the music. Leading the cast for the anime will be Yūki Kaji (Attack on Titan, Guilty Crown) as Rentarō Satomi, Rina Hidaka (Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Accel World) as Enju Aihara, and Rikiya Koyama (Utawarerumono, Fate/Zero) as Kagetane Hiruko.

The story of Black Bullet revolves around the high-schooler Rentarō, a young man who has a superior, mysterious ability in an age of humans that fight against the Gastrea, a race of viral parasites. The story describes Rentarō's actions in a not too distant future.

Kanzaki began publishing the story under the Dengeki Bunko label with illustrations by Saki Ukai in July 2011, and ASCII Media Works is shipping the sixth volume of the light novel series on Thursday.
