Black Bullet is a new distopian-future type anime.
baka-tsuki wrote:
A near future, where humans have been defeated by the viral parasites named Gastrea. They have been exiled into a small territory and live in despair, side-by-side in terror.

In this world trapped in darkness—

Rentaro, a boy living near Tokyo and member of the "Civil Security"—an organization specializing in fighting against the Gastrea—is used to accomplishing dangerous tasks. His partner is Enju, a precocious young girl. They fight thanks to their peculiar powers until one day, when they receive a special assignment from the government. This top secret mission is to prevent the destruction of Tokyo...

Set in a near future, this thrilling heroic-action story... starts now!

if you're got an "attack on titan" vibe from that you'd be pretty spot on. the key difference can be seen in the level of gritty. Black Bullet is a lot less gritty. The supervillains could be from Marvel, and, yeah, the Gastrea might be a bit scary but they aren't titan-level-terrifying
the story has so far focused on a main character combo (very reminiscent of "Machine Doll") but that might change. it'd be cool if it did, like if the story started out dark but not no main-character immunity dark and then just took that idea away

I had thought about watching this, but the description was so similar to attack on titan that i figured they were just copying attack on titan to try to cash in on its popularity, then i watched the OP and from 0:06-0:12 its copying attack on titans OP a lot, but then suddenly they are like "ok thats enough i think people get that we are copying them so lets do our own thing" then at the end theres a little reminder

So since they seem to be self aware that they are copying attack on titan and are admitting to it, and since the idea of a futuristic attack on titan does appeal to me i decided that i would watch it after a few eps were out

Ill start watching it once ep 5 or 6 is out

that's probably a good way to do it

ep 3 just came out
my overall feeling with this show has consistently been "whoa this might actually be really goo... nvm"

i don't think the show actually knows where it wants to be. if you watch 5 or 6 at once it might be easier to ignore it

i watched the first 3 episodes and i thought it was pretty good so far. i liked episode 2 the most out of the 3. episode 3 made me wonder where the show is gonna go like you said, but i think it has alot of potential to be pretty good.

episode 4 preview:
Spoiler:
 
overall i think itll at least be good for a bunch of episodes and it might turn into a not-so-good anime later on like most do from my experience in watching animes like attack on titan, hunter x hunter, and 2nd half of death note (altho these that i mentioned didnt become terrible, they just seemed to run out of ideas or just started to fall off a little bit in their epicness)

So ive seen all the episodes that are out for this (ep 6) and its different enough from attack on titan for me to not consider it to be a "futuristic attack on titan"

However, it takes elements from attack on titan, and elements from like a dozen other anime, the best way to describe it is an amalgamation of various popular anime (all thats missing is a mech suit of some sort, and it wouldnt surprise me to see a mech suit of some sort at some point before the end)

What youre both saying goes back to that fact, its trying to be so many different things that it doesnt have an identity of its own, and because of that it will probably be disappointing in the end

All that said, i am enjoying it so far, my main complaint is the amount of loli it has, the loli levels are off the scale
None of the cursed children
tangent:
 

Anyway, as i was saying, none of the cursed children act like children

Just saw ep 7 and wow, yeah i kindve agree with you now
Not even a little girl being brutally ripped apart like i was saying would redeem this now, the ending to ep 7 ruined everything

Im going to keep watching it though, its like a train wreck where you know you shouldnt watch but you cant look away

After ep 8 and 9 i was going to make a post along the lines of "I want to like this world/story but the show is making it really hard by sabotaging itself constantly"

But after ep 10 im conflicted

Ep 10:
 

The conflict is; i cant tell if the show is actually like that or if im just being cynical
