Black Rock Shooter Google Chrome Theme (Non Official) by Rafaella Bianck.
The anime series is produced by the animation studio Ordet and directed by Shinobu Yoshioka. The series appears to be heavily related to the concept of the Black★Rock Shooter OVA, which involves two girls whose friendship is tested when they are dragged into an alternate world. The series is released in the noitaminA timeslot and the first episode aired on February 2nd, 2012. The series has a total of 8 episodes.
All main characters from the OVA reappear in the anime. The human characters, Mato Kuroi (Kana Hanazawa), Yomi Takanashi (Miyuki Sawashiro) and Yuu Koutari (Kana Asumi). The other selves, Black★Rock Shooter, Dead Master, Strength, and Black★Gold Saw also reappear in the anime. These characters have been redesigned for the anime, which is particularly noticeable with Yomi and Dead Master.
Aside from the OVA characters, several new characters appear in the anime. New human characters include Saya Irino (Mamiko Noto), a school counselor, Kagari Izuriha (Eri Kitamura), a childhood friend of Yomi, and Arata Kohata (Manami Numakura), the captain of the basketball club at Mato and Yomi's school. A new other self named Chariot also appears in the anime.
Insane Black★Rock Shooter also makes her very first appearance in a BRS series as the main antagonist.
