Though the days of moe-emo anime are long past us, the iconic series “Black Rock Shooter” has risen from the ashes like Phoenix.
The Black Rock Shooter production committee unveiled the anime project titled “Black ★★ Rock Shooter DAWN FALL” today (September 16) with a new key visual illustrated by the franchise’s original creator Ryohei Fuke.
[Start of new project] This work has been commercialized and visualized since its birth in 2007. Everything has been renewed and started as a TV anime “Black ★★ Rock Shooter DAWN FALL”! The ban on the visuals drawn by the original huke has also been lifted! http://blackrockshooter-dawnfall.com #Black Rock Shooter #BRS #BRSDFEnglish Translation, Twitter Translate
The visual features the protagonist, Rock, falling from the sky as she tries to catch her motorbike mid-air while holding on to her iconic cannon with her other hand. The backdrop of the visual features a bright moon and ruins of a depilated city.
On a closer inspection, we can see Rock’s eye glowing with blue light, a fixture that has been part of her iconic design since 2007. Even though she features in many manga, OVA, and TV anime series, her backstory is still an enigma to this date.
“Black ★★ Rock Shooter DAWN FALL” will be the first anime project for the character in nearly a decade. The franchise spawned from a single illustration by Ryohei Fuke, which then inspired a music video featuring the voice of Hatsune Miku.
Upon the anime announcement, the official Twitter handle shared the comments of illustrator Ryohei Fuke, who seemed quite excited at the franchise’s return to the silver screen.
[Original comment by Mr. huke ①] Black Rock Shooter’s new animation …? sanity! ?? It is the same impression as many fans and everyone. Huke was very surprised when he talked to me. #Black Rock Shooter #BRS #BRSDFEnglish Translation, Twitter Translate
Much like the protagonist, information about the “Dawn Fall” anime’s broadcast date and the plot is scarce, but we expect that there will be more updates in the coming weeks. So keep an eye out.
