Awesome / Black★Rock Shooter

  • Most can agree that many of the BRS action segments are the best parts of the OVA and series. The anime series itself ramps the action up to brutal levels.
  • The idea of an otherself. That there is someone who cares about you so much that they take the suffering meant for you, no matter how much you are loved or hated, is epic, heartwarming, and a tearjerk all wrapped into a you-shaped package.
