Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for the Black Bullet anime series. The company says the series will be available through select digital outlets “soon,” with a home video release to follow.
The story is described as:
No longer a boy yet not quite a man, Rentaro has already led a tough life. It’s the year 2031 and 10 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.
Black Bullet premiered in Japan on April 8, 2014, and Crunchyroll is simulcasting the series as it airs in Japan.
