Sad face: Goodsmile denies Black Rock Shooter 2 rumors

1:00 PM on 11.15.2010 // Josh Tolentino

Not two days ago, in a dazzling display of journalism we (and many others, I'll have you know) reported that Black Rock Shooter, the Ordet-animated OVA based on a song based on a figure based on an illustration, would be getting a sequel, announced at Anime Festival Asia (AFAX).

Unfortunately, it seems we (and many others, I'll have you know) were a bit overenthusiastic, and Goodsmile president Aki Takanori took to Twitter in order to shoot down our dreams. Tweeted Takanori:

It (the rumor of BRS2) is not completely wrong, but our eagerness to produce a sequel seems to have been interpreted as an official announcement in the enthusiastic atmosphere of the festival. Anyway, we'll keep on working hard to realize BRS2.

Well, they're certainly eager enough, and the original BRS OVA didn't exactly end on a conclusive note, so I'd file this under "unannounced but likely" for now.

In the meantime, enjoy a fun music video below.
