Bullbuster Promotional Video Review
Not a lot was shown in the Promotional Video; however, we did see the wonderful character designs and a little of the world background, and those seemed amazing.
And most importantly the mech animation didn’t seem like bad CGI, it’s certainly on par with hand-drawn animations, and fans are excited about it.
The plot of Bullbuster
A series like Bullbuster is definitely going to be a series worth watching, there are shows with massive mech battles; however, we’ve never seen how these organizations operate with a strict budget.
Bullbuster follows the story of a young individual by the name of Okino Tetsurou who is assigned to the vermin extermination company under the Hato Industries, along with his robot, Bullbuster.
Hato Industries have taken it upon themselves to eliminate a mysterious creature, but they have some serious money problems. The cost of fuel, repair of the robots, and cost of labor for the pilots are all too much, so will they be able to successfully exterminate the creature with a tight budget?
