Title: ブラック★ロックシューター, Black★Rock Shooter
Animation Production: Ordet/Sanzigen
Genre: Action, Fantasy
Airs: 02/02 24:45 Fuji TV
Series Summary from ANN (ova):
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 residing 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. 
Kenn's Comment: I...really don't know much about this one. The PV looked pretty good. Looks like they'll lean more into the action than they did with the OVA, which honestly wasn't that great. What worries me is that, for some reason, I'm seeing all the Shooter scenes as being almost all CG'd. CG worries me a bit, because there's good CG...and it doesn't happen as often as you'd like it to. There's not-so-great CG and then there's overused CG. It just stands out from the rest of the picture.

Can't really say too much because of how little I know about this. Other than that, the main voice cast is rather enticing, Asumi Kana, Hanazawa Kana, Sawashiro Miyuki, Kitamura Eri, Noto Mamiko and Numakura Manami. You may not have heard of Numakura Manami, but it's not like she's super new. She voices Ganaha Hibiki in the IDOLM@STER games as well as reprising that role in the anime.
