Aside from the anime, Black Bullet has a light novel which started the franchise and a manga.

Does watching only the anime get to know the whole story or not? Does the 13 episodes anime cover the whole light novel and/or manga?


The Black Bullet anime covers the first 4 volumes of the light novel, while the manga covers the first volume.

According to Japanese Wikipedia,

  • Episode 1-4: Volume 1
  • Episode 5-7: Volume 2
  • Episode 8-10: Volume 3
  • Episode 11-13: Volume 4

Also according to Japanese Wikipedia, the manga is based on the first volume of the light novel.

However, the light novel has passed the 4th volume (as of current: 7 volumes).
