4. Black Bullet

  • Aired: Apr 2014 - Jul 2014

It’s the year 2021 and the human race has been pushed into the boundaries of walls due to a parasitic virus known as “Gastrea” which converts humans into monsters once infected. In an attempt to counteract this infectious disease, man has placed their hope on teams of two. A team consists of Initiators, female children who have Gastrea-infected DNA granting them superhuman abilities, and Promoters, who are given the task of taking care of the Initiators. In Black Bullet, we follow the team of Enju Aihara, an Initiator, and Satomi Rentaro, a Promoter.

In SukaSuka and Black Bullet, we find our main protagonists in a situation where the human race has resorted to retreating and using any means to stay alive. Even if those means are using cute girls as weapons. Even though Black Bullet may go at a faster pace, we are able to see how the male protagonist cares for those he is surrounded by, but realizes the harsh reality of the world they live in.

Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records takes place in a school, which is very different than the home environment we find in SukaSuka.

6. Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho (Grimoire of Zero)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Apr 2017 - Current Airing

In Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho, we find ourselves following the story of a half-man, half-beast mercenary, Youhei, who wishes he was fully human. Youhei runs into a witch who introduces herself as “Zero” and asks Youhei to help her find a book titled “The Book of Zero.” Youhei refuses to help Zero because he dislikes witches, but he has no choice when Zero tells him that she could grant him his greatest desire, to be fully human.

Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho is on this list because of the type of character development we get between Youhei and Zero. Youhei really dislikes witches, but little by little, he begins to grow fond of Zero and wishes to help her. In SukaSuka, the main protagonist, at first, is feared by the residents of the new place he calls home; but little by little, everyone begins to get used to having him around.
