Kogane Asabuki, a childhood friend, saves him with a weapon on her right hand known as Bubuki; a weapon with its own mind. Azuma Kazuki, who is a Bubuki user himself, learns about the existence of Bubuki and goes on a journey alongside the companions he has found, in an attempt to find and revive Oubu, a Buranki (titan) who sleeps underground. – My Anime List
Based on 11 review scores:
A fast pace that never leaves you bored, lots of action, high quality pumped up music, and just a generally optimistic feeling to always make you feel excited to watch an episode.
BBK/BRNK has had a rough start with its rushed story beats and need to rush into battles so often, but the anime computer generated animation looks fantastic on screen, and the cast of characters have the potential to grow.

My Anime List
I found myself fading in and out, I mean Bubuki Buranki was well rounded to a certain extent and all however I just had a hard time keeping myself engaged in the story and plot. In the end though I think, nah, I strongly believe that Bubuki Buranki could’ve been a lot better than what was presented in the end. The plot and story could’ve been improved, character development etc. Overall I had to give this show a 7/10 because while I was disappointed with the story and plot, the amazing action scenes and fights actually made up for the mistakes.. So I don’t want to rule Bubuki Buranki as a bad show so I think “fair” is good enough. Bubuki Buranki does have a lot of potential to be even greater, I look forward to watching season 2
I would have liked to give this anime a high rating, but looks like pretty art and good opening is all I can say that is good for this anime! The Story ended up being absolute crud after a bit, I would have dropped this, if it weren’t for the art, I might drop Season 2, if it’s worse….
The Outer Haven
For all its issues, BBK/BRNK offers a great deal in concept, interaction, and combat. Some characters are more inherently interesting than others, but roles are set well enough where everyone at least fits in their place. Above all though, it just feels fresh. For example, (mild spoiler alert) one of the major conflicts in the series is immediate survival of humans versus long term survival of humans and buranki alike. Usually, the villain is the one who takes the long-term, far-reaching approach to make a better world at the immediate cost of human lives; however, it is actually the heroes (specifically Migiwa) who take this stance. With this drama combined with the humor and action in the series, BBK/BRNK is a fairly unique experience. If wonky pacing isn’t a concern for you, I definitely recommend taking a look at BBK/BRNK.
Want proper character development and a good story? Look elsewhere. Characters and plot in this were a joke. Everything was developed by backstory causing the characters and story to feel extremely forced. I stuck it out hoping that it’d turn around because it had alot of potential but in the end I was severely disappointed.
