Black Rock Shooter is something of an oddity as a franchise. Each piece of media revolves around one iconic character and her stories take place in separate universes with their own characters. However, since the eponymous lass is the only thing that needs to be incorporated, this means BRS lends itself to a video game adaptation. And simplicity be darned, Black Rock Shooter: The Game is one fine adaptation indeed.
The plot begins as standard action fare, taking place on a post-apocalyptic Earth infested with aliens. What separates it from other renditions of this archetypal story is how dismal the situation is. The earth’s population of seven billion has been eradicated and there are a whole twelve remaining (some of which are killed off in the game’s first few minutes). They’re also entirely composed of soldiers who have dedicated their lives to revenge.
