Black Rock Shooter Puzzles

July 21, 2010

Not a usual anime collectible, jigsaw puzzles, that is, but none the less, there are three Black★Rock Shooter jigsaw puzzles in production and up for pre-orders right now.

So why are these cool?

Well, for one, the pictures of these are really awesome. Have a look for yourself:

They look awesome, right?

Besides that though, they’re 1000 piece anime jigsaw puzzles.  Do you know how rare that is?  They are just not produced all that often.

On top of that, these are really cool puzzles.  I used to do puzzles, back in the day before I was so busy it was hard for me to have any free time for something like this.  They’re really fun.  If you can get a good surface to work on and play some music or some anime on the tele and you suddenly find yourself happily engaged and amused for hours.  My favorite puzzle sizes were the 500 piece ones and the 1000 piece ones.  I did a 2000 piece one once and it really was just too big and took too long.  The 500 piece ones were about an afternoon and the 1000 piece ones took a day or two of a few hours here and there.  After they’re finished you can glue them together from the back and make an awesome looking poster with them by putting them in a picture frame.  I think these Black Rock Shooter puzzles are definitely the type you would want to glue and frame.  The completed puzzles are 100cm x 75cm.  That’s roughly 3.3 ft x 2.5 ft.  Nice size, right?

Don’t know much about Black Rock Shooter yet?

Well, first you would want to know about Miku Hatsune.  Do you know who she is?  She’s a Vocaloid character created for the singing synthesizer application developed by the Yamaha Corporation.  So basically, she’s a singer.  Kind of like Sharon Apple in the real world minus the crazy A.I. obsessed with Isamu Dyson part. XD

Here’s the video that made Miku famous:

Miku Hatsune and all the other little Vocaloids you seen in this video have spurned all sorts of Vocaloid stuff and the Vocaloid movement has now evolved into branches like Black Rock Shooter.

Have a look at this video:

Or if you prefer, with English translation:

Black Rock Shooter became so famous they made some Black Rock Shooter 1/8 Scale figures.  And from there they’re now making a Black Rock Shooter anime, a Black Rock Shooter nendoroid, and a Black Rock Shooter figma.

Here’s a trailer for the upcoming anime:

These rare Black Rock Shooter puzzles are scheduled to arrive in Japan in August.  They’re up for pre-orders now.  If you want to get them from us we can arrange it but they’ll need to be special ordered unless there is suddenly a bunch of peeps reading this blog that want them and we have some crazy high demand that would warrent us importing them.
