Episode guide
Episode 1 Black Brand
Episode 2 Black Altar

"Bible Black: Origins" (Baiburuburakku: Gaiden - バイブルブラック: 外伝) or "Bible Black: Gaiden" is the second entry in the Bible Black anime series.

The two episodes explain the backstory of the first Walpurgis Night, twelve years before the events of the first series. Like its predecessor it is animated by Milky Studio (part of MS Pictures).

The first episode debuted on the 25th of May, 2002 in Japan, during the run of the first series. Both episodes were later adapted and dubbed to English, French, German and Spanish. They are commonly paired together and distributed as a single release.

As a prequel, the episodes are merely based on the original computer game and do not follow its plot. However, some scenes and characters draw inspiration from story elements present in the game, such as the school assembly scene with Junko Mochida and the game's 'bully' characters of Shinjou and Inoue and their gang, who share a similarity with a group of thugs in the anime.

PlotEdit

Shot S2E1 bible black

Fifty shades of black.

Student Hiroko Takashiro and her friends Rie and Saki start their own witchcraft club at school. After Rie finds the Bible Black, the group uses the magic spells contained in the mysterious grimoire to influence the sexual desires of their classmates, including the student council president Nami Kozono, who has a crush on the young transfer student Reika Kitami.

After Kozono joins the club, they try to summon a demon in preparation of summoning the Devil himself on Walpurgis Night. The ritual backfires, causing Takashiro to have a change of heart about using magic. Kozono defies her and assumes leadership of the club. Vengeful, power hungry and angered about Kitami repeatedly rejecting her advances, she stops at nothing to achieve her goals.

The girls proceed with the summoning ritual, using Kitami as a human sacrifice. But not everything goes according to Kozono's plan. The night changes the life of young Kitami forever, shaping future events.
