On the contrary to popular belief, Black★Rock Shooter is not a fanmade character of Miku. She is an original character by huke. The story of the song tells about the character, Black★Rock Shooter, having lost something important and tries to search for it, and in the process tells of her struggle with despair and hopelessness. Eventually the character gains hope as she moves on to the future with new found courage.
And here’s the 3DPV version of B★RS, which was made by AnomaroP, the same producer who has created 3DPV version of Miku’s songs “Packaged” and “Saihate”. In this video the arch-nemesis of B★RS, known as “The Dead Master” is also revealed.
Now we move to some of the fanart images created by Pixiv users as posted below. Enjoy!
Currently Black★Rock Shooter is ranking 27th on the Nico Nico Douga Two Million Views Videos list, a couple of places after Rin’s Meltdown (Roshin Yukai) which also obtained two million views on June 11th.
