"Black Rock Shooter probably has the strangest origin story. It originally began as a drawing on the Japanese website Pixiv by a Hatsune Miku fan, which spawned the song Black Rock Shooter which in turn allowed an OVA, multiple manga series and even a full anime series to be created using the character. Now after some delay, NIS America has brought Black Rock Shooter: The Game, a PSP title released in Japan in 2011. Being the first ever Black Rock Shooter release to ever come to North America, was Black Rock Shooter: The Game worth the wait?"
