Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall Episode 6 is what we will talk about. In April 2022, an anime was released which was neither adapted from a manga nor any light novel. This anime is called Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall. Although this anime has received major popularity due to this anime, it has been adapted into previous forms of media including a game.

Black Rock Shooter was created based on the illustrations by Huke, short for Ryohei Fuke. These illustrations were so famous that they inspired a song called “Black Rock Shooter” by Supercell featuring Hatsune Miku. In 2010, these illustrations also inspired an Original Video Animation worth 50 minutes produced by Ordet studio. A year later, a game, as well as a manga, was added to the franchise.

In 2012, an anime was made and the franchise also released a second game. Thus, Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall is a sequel to the first anime as well as is mostly based on the game. So far the series has released 5 episodes and the 6th episode will be out very soon!


As mentioned above, the entire franchise focuses on a female character, who is dressed in all black with one blazing blue eye. This character gives off a mysterious aura captivating the people around her. Not only this but she is a skilled fighter, often handling a powerful cannon-like gun. Although this mysterious girl, named Black Rock Shooter, is the central character of the franchise, each form of media introduces us to new characters as well as different stories. Black Rock Shooter: Dawn Fall’s plot is similar to the game, which is set in the year 2062.

Without her weapons, Strength becomes cranky and deems herself useless until Norita assures her otherwise. However, when the time comes, Norita hands Strength over to the EI soldiers. This exchange was bound to set Miya free, or so Norita thought. But this was a part of his escape plan, as he tried to save her which in turn allowed her to create a partial weapon.

However, at this point Strength was angry at human beings but still decided to save Norita. This is when things reach their climax as Empress and Dead Master enter the scene and help Strength create her weapons again. The final part of the episode shows Empress and Strength riding off on a motorcycle to Smiley’s base to where Miya is kept, hoping that she is alright. Sadly, the episode ends with Smiley sexually assaulting Miya.
