God, I just love how bipolar this series is.

Once again, awesome job (even though you're probably sick of reading that at this point, I mean it with all sincerity)!
I know right.

This series is like playing Muv Luv Alternative when you already know the ending.

Them feels.

And I can never get tired of reading the praises you guys give my summaries. If only because it confirms that I’m heading in the right direction with my summaries.

More importantly though it confirms my greatness

Ahem, yeah.


But in all seriousness tell me if you guys ever feel I’m off tangent with my summaries

Yeah, that’s what I meant by Kisara has the best chance.

Although rereading volume 1 now, I would say Enju’s about even with Kisara if only because of how much the author foreshadows the two ending up together.

No problem.

Now then. The epilogue part 1.

Separated it into two parts because it was getting too long.

Well this was a pain in the ass to summarize.

More so than any other section.

Because the vital details here are extremely hard to decipher.

I’ll be honest, take a lot of things (specifically Rentaro’s conversation with Seitenshi) here with a grain of salt.

Thankfully after this it’s either the short story or volume 2 both of which are a lot easier to understand then this.

Spoiler for volume 1 epilogue part 1:

Just a question for fun. For Rentaro, Kisara and Enju, who would you guys pick as their seiyu?

Hey hey hey, just because I'm about to build a marble statue in your honor for your efforts thus far doesn't mean you can get an ego. : (

Do you have any plans on reading the entirety of Vol. 4 any time soon?

Spoiler for volume 1 epilogue part 1:
Thanks for the summaries Log! Can't get enough! So Rentaro did succeed in retrieving the case, but he didn't get the reward? Or did he burn it all up paying for a new arm? In later novels does his IP rank rise?

As for Rentaro, @Log, earlier when you generously revealed Rentaro's specs you mentioned that he possessed some sort of special ability he inherited from his family? Who said this and could this have anything to do with the fact that he took five doses of Sumire's special gastrea mix, which was not the doctor's prescription, and didn't turn into a gastrea? I know this is all fictional science, but I think we can safely assume that taking 5 doses of a drug would exponentially increase the already high risk of turning into a gastrea into a guarantee.

Also, a gastrea attack during his childhood left him spilling his guts, literally. The gastrea must have made physical contact and I'd think that he would have made contact with its bodily fluids. Yet he didn't turn into a gastrea?

The following are simply speculative:
If the Inheritance wasn't inside the box, then why would Seitenshi try to retrieve it? Even if it wasn't the real thing, it doesn't change the fact that a Stage 5 Gastrea was summoned.

BTW, update on chapter 1!

Don’t really know my seiyuu’s well but of the top of my head…..…..

Rentaro- Nakamura Yuuchi mainly because he voiced Oreki from Hyouka and Rentaro is basically Oreki’s long lost brother from another dimension.

Enju- The girl that voiced Index from To Aru is the best one I can think of at the moment.

Kisara- Ayane Sakura the seiyuu of Yozora from Hagani. That slightly tomboyish would fit Kisara well and tsundere voice actor is tsundere voice actor.

I already have an ego though. You guys are just pushing it to new heights.

Regarding volume 4, I don’t really have any control of when I read it.

I’m in the same boat as the rest of you people who can’t read Japanese in waiting for translators to update, albeit in my case the translators started earlier and are faster.

Currently the translator for Black Bullet hasn’t updated in around 5 months. He’s likely waiting for the translator of volume 3 to finish. And volume 3’s translator is going at a slow pace. Around 1 part per 3 weeks. He’s currently almost done with volume 3 chapter 1 (done with part 8 of chapter 1 recently).

So give or take 5 months and I might be able to continue volume 4. That’s if the status quo keeps up of course.

And finally finishing off volume 1.

Can't say the last part is to hard to do.

Spoiler for volume 1 epilogue part 2 aka volume 1 is finished:

That's a bummer. Well, good luck with waiting for Volume 3 and 4's chinese translations to finish (it's not like Volume 5 is right around the corner anyways, so no rush)!

Maybe you can give summarizing volume 3+4 a go.

And also I have a question to ask you.

Do you know the romaji version of the names of Rentaro's parents?

Just calling them "parents" or "Rentaro's parents" feels awkward because they have given names.

I can't find their Japanese names to insert into romaji translator however.

And I doubt a Chinese translation would be accurate.

I don't remember their names though, and I'm busy with a buttload of series at this point so I'll have to pass on the summaries. : ( You're clearly the man for the job for this one.

Still, I'll dig around for his parents' names, so if I see anything, I'll post it up!

His father's name is Takaharu (貴春), his mother's - Mafuyu (舞風優).

They're all girls.

And no the reason isn't explained although there are theories.

And time for Volume 2 prologue.

Some things to note.

I run into naming problems again.

The three new characters in volume 2 prologue unfortunately aren't important enough, to have their Japanese names displayed anywhere where I can found it.

So no Japanese name=no romaji.

So me being lazy just put their Chinese names into Google translate

The guy=Chang Hong (lol, Google translator can't even give me a English name).

The girl=Julian (Google translate gave me an actual name. What madness is this)

The cruel promoter= Haga (I’ll laugh if Google translate is actually right)

I'll edit it out latter if someone gives me the romaji for these three characters.

The other thing to note is that apparently the guy is a least in high school and the girl who’s a cursed children is only younger than him by 3 years.

Which doesn't seem right, because the cursed children are 10 years old at most.

The Chinese translator likely either goofed with the guys grade or goofed with the age difference.

Or I goofed and can't read.

It's pretty minor things through and through. And I probably wrote too much at this point.

Now then onto volume 2 prologue.
