Black Rock Shooter

Synopsis: Mato Kuroi just got into junior high school, and on the first day, someone catches her eye; her classmate Yomi Takanashi. The two meet. The innocent and naive Mato, the mature Yomi. Seemingly opposites, but the time they spend together only strengthens a growing friendship. But as they go into their second year at the school, they get placed in separate classes, and they begin to grow apart. But somewhere simultaneously, in another world, a young girl, blue fire in her eyes, Black Rock Shooter faces another young girl; this one holding a jet-black scythe, Dead Master, and a battle to the death begins to unfold.

You're up early, Mato.

I woke up before the alarm went off.

Now if you can just keep it up...

Ow! Ow! It's hot!

- Mato?

- Yes?

When you finish, go and wake up Hiro.

What? No!...

He never listens to me

when I try to get him up.


Thanks mom!

It's morning! School starts today!

Wake uuuup!

Well, it's not my fault

if you miss class.

You've been warned!


Are you off already?


There's somewhere I want to go first.

Right. Well, sorry I can't make it

to the ceremony today.

Don't worry, it doesn't matter.

Well, see you later!

Ah, the train!

- ...right?

- That's right.



The new school year ceremony

will take place in the gymnasium.

When you arrive...

... please quickly locate your assigned

seat by number and be seated...

Please keep the chatter to a minimum.

You are a student at this school...

... and you are expected

to behave accordingly.

Additionally. if you don't feel well...

... please let the nearest teacher know.

You can find the ceremony's

program in your pamphlet.

Kotori... asobi...

You can find the ceremony's

program in your pamphlet.

Dear pupils. Congratulations.

you are now a student of this school.

Please allow me to share the great

emotion of the student's parents.

I would also like to show

my special gratitude...

Hey! Uh...

- What?

- Ah!


Uh... so...

Oh yeah! Your height!

- My height?

- Yeah, you're tall. Must be nice.



I saw you came in a car this morning...

... I was like, whoa,

people really do that!

I didn't want to.

But my father insisted.

So it was only for today.

Do you live close by?

No, Machinami-cho.

That's my neighborhood!


Yeah, I take the train

from Kibata Station.

Well. we're neighbors.

From tomorrow I'll be taking

the train from that station too.

That's cool.

Hey. where did you go

to elementary school?

Not around here.

I just moved here.

- Oh, that's why!

- Why what?

Well, Kotori-Asobi

(little bird playing)...

... is a pretty uncommon name!

- Takanashi (no hawks)

- What ?

It's pronounced "Takanashi".

"Kotori-Asobi" is how you write it.


Why is it pronounced "Takanashi"?

Well, there are "no hawks",

where "little birds play".

Oooooh, I see!

That's a cool name.

But a little difficult to read!

I think so too.

Hmm. Takanashi. No hawks.

Yomi Takanashi.

My full name.

Kuroi. Mato Kuroi.

But you can call me Mato.

Mato... That's a cool name too.


- Oh. Mato?

- What?

It's here.

Our classroom.

Oh yeah, right!

Where did you live before?

- Germany.

- Wow.

Oh. you're a returnee.

Yeah. that's what it's called.!

That's awasome.!

And do you speak German?

I was only there for a short while.

so only a little.

- Please. say something in German.!

- Uh...

- Good Morning!

- Good Morning!

Did I kept you waiting again?

Oh no... I've just arrived.

I didn't make any detours this time.

Have you chosen your club?

Not yet. Have you?

Basketball. I decided to play basketball

in junior high.!


Why don't you join

the basketball club too?

You're so tall...

- I have a bit of a complex.

- About what?

About my height.

I'm jealous of your height.!

I'm short.

One of the reasons I want to play

is that I hope it makes me taller.

- Then there are others?

- Other what?


It's not a big deal.

Come one. tell me.!

What's your best subject?

It's gotta be English, right?

Not really.

German is totally different.

I don't think I'm particularly good at it,

but I like math.

Doesn't it seem like most people

like math? I'm surprised.

What about you,

what subject are you best at?

Well, I guess... I'm gonna find out!

Right now it's gym, aside from that

all subjects are about the same!


Nice shot!


Wow, you're good.

Have you played before?


I used to play with the boys in the park.

That would be it then.

Let's get back to the game.

Yes. Captain.!

Hey Yomi, let me copy yours.

Next time it'll be my turn.

If you don't do it yourself,

you'll never learn.

Thanks, Yomi. I love you!

Cut it out, Mato.

That tickles. Hee hee.

I've decided.

Not basketball,

but something similar.

- You're really good!

- Thanks very much.

Thanks for waiting.

Oh, there you are.

- Should we go somewhere today?

- Sure.

You're the eldest

so you have no choice.

Yomi, don't talk like my mother.

A call from home.

Excuse me for a minute.


Hello, Mom?

Yes, I'm okay.

Now? I'm with Mato.

- Isn't it cute?

- Yeah.


have you got a few minutes to spare?

I guess so.

There's somewhere I want to take you.

- Okay?

- Uh-huh.

Over this way. Come on!

Mato, wait for me!

This is it. Look!

This is my favorite place.

When you look at the town from here,

somehow it just makes you feel better.

And it's not just the view,

I don't know it's hard to explain, but...

You know?

I understand.

You like this town, don't you Mato?

Yeah, I love it.

I was born and raised here!

I've been moving around

since I was born.

Well, you should stay here from now on!

I hate the idea of you leaving!

Yes. I want to stay.

Here Yomi, this is for you.

Isn't it cute?

I bought it for you.

Can I have it?

Of course. I mean look.

Your phone doesn't have any straps.

I think it's lonely.

See, I've got this one.

I really like it.

Thanks! I'll take good care of it.
