….. because his mother is deaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.
Sunrise really took liberties with the adaptation of Black God. I guess they felt the original Keita, arrogantly angsty as he is, would alienate fans right from the start and decided to change him in to a saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad high school student. Bear in mind he was a COOL computer game programmer in the original manga. In a lot of ways, I guess it’s a good move, though it surprised me at the start.
Noriko Shitaya’s Kuro is a lot different from what I imagined too. It’ll take some time to get used to it. Her fighting scenes were well done though.
The Doppeliner concept is also more prevalent in the anime than in the manga, with no less than 3 different “Roots” showing up in the first episode. Poor Keita had to witness the loli dying in front of him. So saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.
I think Sunrise also lowered the ero-ness too. I mean, one whole episode and all we got was one boob shot?! Lack of fanservice makes me saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad, XD.
