A manga of Black Rock Shooter has been announced titled Black Rock Shooter Innocent Soul. Given description: "The story follows a girl in Hazama (Threshold), a world between Heaven and Earth. "Impure souls" — those that could not ascend to Heaven with the burden of their own weight — have drifted to this world of constant warfare."
A published 4koma series also exists. Titled Black Rock-chan, it's really just an Affectionate Parody of the characters and setting; it stars a Pint Sized Kid version of B★RS with a full-sized Dead Master acting like her mom.
Tropes found in this manga:
- Abusive Parents: The mother in Ch 6 to Cecil. She took the death of her husband hard.
- And I Must Scream: How Hanako traps the souls inside her illusory high-school.
- Breather Episode: Chapter 7 is basically a Troperiffic Romantic Comedy.
- Darker and Edgier: The first chapter alone has a little girl brutally impaled by the grotesquely mutated soul of a legendary serial killer.
- Dead All Along: Reto and Io. OK, every Yodomi Soul ever.
- Good Is Not Nice: The purpose of the Black Shooters is to keep the number of Yodomi Souls in Hazama under control, and nothing else.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Io and Reto.
- Hanako in the second chapter.
- Oh Crap, This Cannot Be!: Jack's reaction to realizing that he's fighting the Black Star.
- We Have Reserves: The rulers of Hazama's attitude to Black Shooters.
- Woobie of the Week
