This is where it all started…
For newbies whom are eager:
The music also entitled “BLACK★ROCK SHOOTER (ブラック★ロックシューター)” as heard in the video above was performed by Japanese doujin band, supercell (Guilty Crown OP & ED, Bakemonogatari & Nisemonogatari ED), with ryo as the composer, arranger & writer of the lyrics, while vocals performed by Vocaloid‘s vocal synthesizer, Hatsune Miku. The artwork of this music was illustrated by huke (Steins;Gate character design). FYI, ryo & huke are the members of the supercell itself. The music video above was uploaded to the Japanese video sharing site Nico Nico Douga. It was later included in the band’s major debut album named “supercell” featuring Hatsune Miku released in the year 2009.
Then after the music video received positively & became popular in that site, Good Smile Company, Japanese figure manufacturer took the opportunity to begin a new project called “B★RS Project”, then afterwards it spawned some figures of Figma & Nendoroid series together with an OVA.Now it becomes more popular in J-Pop culture and so far, the franchise contains an OVA, 2 manga series, 2 games & the latest one will be getting an anime series starting its broadcast tomorrow during noitaminA timeslot on Fuji TV.
So if you love B★RS, then you should love supercell’s original music too. Most of ryo’s lyrics was based on the person’s feelings. My favorites including Black★Rock Shooter, Kocchi Muite Baby & Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari.
This one might be supercell’s biggest project so far.
And not to forget that I’ll be re-encoding these series. So stay tuned!
