Black Bullet(ブラック・ブレット) [Light Novel]

Story: Shiden Kanzaki
Illustration: Saki Ukai


Quote:
The last hope of the humanity to save this world on the edge of the destruction is only... one boy?

A near future, where men have been defeated by the viral parasites Gastrea. They have been exiled into a small territory and live in despair, side by side with terror.

In this world trapped in darkness

Rentaro, a boy living near Tokyo and member of the "Private Security" an organization expert in fighting against the Gastrea is used to accomplishing dangerous works. His partner is a precocious young girl, Enju. They fight thanks to their peculiar powers until one day, when they receive a mission order 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!
This light novel is published under the Dengeki Bunko(Index, Sword Art Online, Ore no Imouto, Durarara) label. Currently there are 4 volumes out. There is also a manga adaptation coming out and the first manga chapter will be published in Dengeki Maoh magazine on August 27th.

Baka-Tsuki has started a Teaser Project for this and the Prologue chapter of volume 1 has been translated. It seems interesting and the illustrations are really good. Hopefully more people are interested to translate this.

Seems kind of dark based on the illustrations. Looks pretty good. It reminds me of another work but I don't remember it.

Volume 4 was just harsh. 520 days? Christ.

I really wanted to ask you for a summary for each volume of the novels, but I'm looking forward to see this novel gets translated so I can read it myself.

To be spoiled or not to be spoiled?

Such dilemma.

Mmmm. Hold off on asking from spoilers. It's much better once you read it for yourself. The punch at the end of Volume 4 gets to hurt so much once you have an idea just why 520 days sucks.

I just learned about this series. I already started building profiles for it in the wiki database Anime Vice.

http://www.animevice.com/black-bulle...novel/15-2042/

I'm still translating the characters list, and I've added some pretty good sized images for the covers of Volume 2 and 3.

Here's a pic from the manga illustrator to commemorate the serialization.

EXACTLY. Jesus christ, it tears me up every time I see how many days are left. ;_;

I'm thinking of making this series my next purchase, but the author loves to use words that take quite a bit of looking up to them, so I'm on the fence with this one. Definitely good, though.

Seems to be a lot of manga with virus turning people into monsters, but also into superhumans lately.
