Bible-black 8191

The kind of religion a guy can get behind.

A H-game that was first released in 2000 and, a year later, turned into a well known Hentai anime. In 2002, it got a Prequel called Bible Black: Origins and 2 Sequels called Bible Black: New Testament and Bible Black: Only.

One of the more famous H-series in the United States, Bible Black has a decent fan following. The series also gained a level of infamy for some of the more outrageous moments and the dark and disturbing material contained within. The character designs were done by Yoshiten, the same man who did the character designs for a series with a similar level of infamy.

It has recently got a H-game sequel called Bible Black: The Infection, which is slated for English release on June 28th, 2011. Whether or not it will get a Hentai adaptation, is yet to be known.

According to Chris Beveridge of Anime on DVD a live action version is being made. (Which isn't saying much, as it wouldn't be the first hentai so adapted.)

Not to be confused with the single by Heaven And Hell, the King Crimson song Starless and Bible Black, or the British sitcom Black Books.

Also, not to be confused with the grimoire The Sixth and Seventh Book of Moses aka Bible Black. Wikipedia has an article. Text

Versions of this work circulated throughout Scandinavia and Central Europe. In Sweden and Finland these books are compiled and published under the titles, "Den Svarta Bibeln" and "Musta Raamattu", respectively, meaning "The Black Bible".


This show provides examples of:Edit

  • Anti-Villain: Kitami to some people.
    • Those who don't feel this way tend to view her as a Complete Monster. There's precious little difference in the way of middle ground on this issue.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Kitami delivers this to Saeki in episode 2 to stop her magic.
  • Art Shift: Between the first game (La Noche De Walpurgis) and the second (Infection). It's relatively minor, which somehow manages to make it that much more jarring.
  • Ascended Extra: Mika Ito is this in the second game.
  • Bad Export for You: Japanese production company Milky tried this in several ways, most notoriously trying to force New Testament to be released in North America dub-only (that only lasted for one disc).
  • Banned in China: Well not really but it caused a bit of a controversy when some Canadian retailers put it on open shelves next to 4Kids dubs and the like.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Minase and Imari to an extent
  • Betty and Veronica: Imari the Betty and Saeki the Veronica (or Imari the Betty and Shiraki the Veronica)
  • Big Bad: Reika Kitami serves as this for the majority of the franchise being the leader of the evil cult that antagonize the protagonists.
  • Black Magic: One of the key plot points.
  • Blondes Are Evil: Kitami, and to a lesser extent Saeki.
    • Saeki ends up just as evil as Kitami in the game.
    • Also Jody Crowley from the sequel
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Another of the important plot points with most of the characters falling victim to it at some point in both series.
    • Shiraki gets it especially bad.
    • Kitami, in particular, enjoys this in the anime. In the game, it's a mix of this and her Love Potion.
  • Break the Cutie: Kitami in Origins. See Start of Darkness. You can also say the same thing about Imari in the original.
    • Ito Mika in the first game. The text description is particularly brutal, since It's the first spell Minase casts in the game, and what it causes her to do is absolutely horrifying. Even to Minase, who regrets it a touch. And the poor girl never really seems to recover from it.
    • Aki Ichikawa also get hit with this in New Testament.
  • Break the Haughty : Takashiro after her ritual summon backfired and she get raped by a demon in the prequel.
  • Brother-Sister Incest: Minase gropes his step-sister, Yukiko simply for not wearing a bra under a shirt and allowing her nipples to be seen poking from underneath. Due to him having a magic imbued touch that causes orgasms, this causes her to retreat to her room and masturbate furiously.
    • In the game, it's more explicit, he has full-on sex with her.
      • Only if Minase isn't working for Kitami; Minase and Yukiko are both drugged and forced into it. Otherwise, it plays out the same way it plays out in the anime.
  • Broken Bird: Takashiro, especially in the sequel. And then she proceeds to get more broken...
    • She gets it pretty bad in the first game, too.
    • Ito in the games. First Minase's rather explicit choice in spells causes her to...perform some rather lewd acts in front of her entire class, then she gets put under mind control by Kitami.
  • But Thou Must!: The first game has one of these. After causing Ito's lewd performance, you're given the choice whether or not to use magic again. Regardless of the player's choice, Minase decides to use it anyways.
    • There's more than just one, actually. The earliest is Minase ending up going to the art club meeting no matter how much you try to avoid it.
  • Caught with Your Pants Down: More like caught giving a Facial....and in front of your best friend who secretly has a crush on you to top it all off.
    • In the game, that's if you choose Shiraki instead of Imari and are taking an evil road. If you choose Imari, you drug the poor girl for use in Kitami's ceremony.
  • Chaste Hero: Toru Yuge from New Testament deserves honorable mention for this.
  • Chickification - Imari is actually a champion martial artist in the game. This was ignored in the first anime entirely.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Although Minase helps her win the affections of a boy she likes, Murai is never seen or heard from for the rest of the series. Wonder how things are going with her & Asada?
  • Country Matters: In the English dub
  • Darker and Edgier: Good lord New Testament. What little restraint the orginal anime had was dropped in this one. It possessed a more nihilistic tone, an antagonist so dangerous that she Worfs Kitami of all people and some rather gruesome death scenes as is expanded on in the Death by Sex section.
  • Deal with the Devil: Kitami does this at the end of the Prequel in order to save her life.
    • The major plot revolves around her trying to cheat the Devil so she can keep living. Canonically, it works.
  • Death by Sex: Certain endings in the game have this happen to the player. Takashiro comes close to it in the storylines where the player's working with Kitami.
    • In the sequel anime series, this pretty much happens for the entire first half of the series. A couple is found dismembered in a car by joggers, a green-haired student and her professor are found pinned to the wall by a security guard just moments after intercourse, Toudou and her young teacher (but still older than her) where burned alive in the middle of sex (she came Back From the Dead though) and then there's the particularly unpleasant bank scene where a woman is raped by the barrel of a shotgun and the guy wielding it gets so excited he accidentally pulls the trigger.
  • Demoted to Extra: In Minase's case he is one of the main characters. His sister does not appear in the sequel either. A quick shot of a computer has a photo of Minase when the detective is investigating into the past case but Minase doesn't appear in person.
    • Averted by Infection. Despite gaining a new voice actor, Minase remains the player's avatar, for good or ill.
    • Minase is only seen in one headshot in the sequel anime series and not mentioned much more than that. It is apparently believed by some that he is implied to have been killed at some point by the Kitami-possessed-Imari.
    • Ito, in transitioning from the game to the anime.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Kitami at the start. Most of the cast when they come under Kitami's sway.
  • Dude She's Like In A Coma: One of evil options in the game is visiting an unconscious Mika Ito in the nurse's office.
    • It's not the visitation that's the evil choice. (In fact, you have to visit her, if you don't want a bad end later on.) But your options when you're there...
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Kitami, both in the original and Prequel
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: A lesson that the protagonists should have learned.
    • Infection averts this, since the first scene to occur ends up with Minase screaming at the nightmare he's suffering through, clearly showing that he's learned his lesson.
    • The main motive of Takashiro's Heel Realization in the prequel.
  • Evil Foreigner: Jody Crowley from the sequel
  • Fan Service: Yes, that too. But really what else would you expect?
  • Fantasy Contraception: Black magic must make guys sterile or something...
    • Discussed in the game: Kitami pretty much acknowledge the chance that Takashiro can get pregant through being gang raped by her students. She however, suggest her to get an abortion if that occur.
  • Well, New Testament is decent and Only probably has the best voice acting in the English series. The other two, however...
  • Gainaxing: Lots of it.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: Minase & Imari finally do this.
  • Gorn: Edges into this at several moments especially Shiraki raping Minase right after she stabs him.
  • Grand Theft Me: Imari gets taken over by Kitami. Somewhat inverted in that a part of Imari is still in there.
  • Gun Porn: Eheheh...well, the thing is...
  • Heel Face Turn: Minase. What? A semi-respectable male hentai character?
  • Hello, Nurse!: This is pretty much Kitami's role in the original series.
    • Yukiko as well. Not only is she incredibly hot, but she's actually studying to be a medical practitioner.
    • The game version of Saeki, when she's in her school uniform, falls under this. Not so much in the mage robes, though.
  • Hermaphrodite: Kitami can turn her clitoris into a fully functioning penis.
    • Saeki also learns this trick in Bible Black Only; she uses magic to get two.
    • Imari in the follow up anime. Justified, supposedly, by her being host to Kitami's spirit.
    • Jody also possesses this ability in New Testament.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Takashiro
    • Actually subverted by the end of the first series and the "true" ending of the game: Minase wants a brunette—Imari, specifically.
      • In the second series however, the possessed Imari makes a comment about how Takashiro stole Minase from her.
      • Seeing as it's probably Kitami talking and not Imari, that statement makes a great deal of sense. Takashiro is responsible for Minase's Heel Face Turn.
  • H-Game POV Character: Starts as Type IV.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Imari on Kitami, and to a lesser extent Minase
    • Saeki is this in the game, depending on your choices.
  • Horny Devils
  • Hot for Student: Kitami with Minase. Takashiro with Minase (multiple times). Toudou seduces her teacher. Yukiko gets very kinky with her senior medical teacher. And if all the various orgies were counted, this list would be gigantic. In the prequal Takashiro is seen taking money from a teacher in exchange for helping him seduce two students.
    • And the list from the games isn't any shorter.
  • Hot for Teacher: Happens a lot.
  • Hot Witch: Of course.
  • The Immodest Orgasm: Oh so much. In a bit of TV Tropes irony, this entry was once right before The Big O in the Anime list.
  • It Got Worse: Think the first series ends on a bad note? It gets worse. Much worse.
    • The second game arguably falls under this.
  • ~It's Not Rape If You Enjoyed It~: Duh! ya think?
    • Again, averted in the game. Kitami's got a rather potent aphrodisiac.
  • I Read It for the Articles: The game is littered with random trivia about art and literature, among other things. Occult stuff is predominant, but there's a summary of Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique among other things. And you thought you don't learn anything from porn.
  • Idiot Ball: Takashiro in Origins. She and her coven decide to play Break the Haughty by forcing Kozono Nami to fall in love with some random skanky guy who wants her. OK, fine. Takashiro then decides to release her from the spell and tell her that they caused it. Also fine; revenge complete. The problem comes when Takashiro agrees to teach this woman magic. It could be justified as extreme arrogance, as Takashiro is probably feeling pretty invincible at that point. But still: you're willingly teaching your worst enemy the tools necessary to take you out. How can that possibly be a good idea? And no, this doesn't end well (more specifically Nami usurps her, blasts her against a wall and has Takashiro's friends tie her up and lock her in a broom closet.)
    • Nami immediately counters this with her own idiot ball. So your ritual calls for a Virgin Sacrifice. And you've picked out a suitable virgin, Kitami, someone who's pissed you off (from Nami's perspective). But it's a few hours before the ceremony; what do you do? If you're Nami, you apparently hand her over to a group of men and have them rape her. Oh, but you tell them not to do it in the vagina. And instead of supervising the rape, to make sure they only rape her ass, you leave. I'm sure nothing will happen to this virginity that will cause the ritual to fail and get you killed by your presumed sacrifice.
      • Kitami naturally gets this right. Pretty much the first thing she does once she finds a suitable Virgin Sacrifice is to ensure that she remain a virgin via a chastity belt.
      • For what it's worth, Kitami herself says that her being sacrificed didn't work because she was Only Mostly Dead in the game.
    • In Episode 2, Minase goes back down into the basement he originally got the book from, when who should come along but Kitami? She spins a yarn about how she gave her soul to a demon and invites him to do the same. Considering all the nasty crap he's witnessed up to this point, any sane man would've dropped the book and ran like hell. But I almost forgot that this is a hentai, and we still have a couple of episodes left, so... on with the ritual sex!
      • If you try this in the game, Kitami will kill you in most routes.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Minase...maybe.
  • Jesus Taboo: The original anime references Jesus, for obvious reasons this was changed to "Satan" in the dub, though this might just make it worse.
    • Worse than a cult of naked chicks slaughtering virgins to summon demons in the name of Jesus?
    • This could actually be a case of doing the research in part of the creators. There are literally billions of demons in hell. One or two could have the same name as Jesus, and what better name to trick impressionable school students? Fridge Brilliance here.
    • It is pointed out that Jesus and the spells in the name of God are a trick since all the magic in the book is black magic and therefor evil.
  • Kick the Dog: Brutally used in Origins. Takashiro kills a puppy who the teenage Kitami had become quite attached to and use it in a sacrifice. Also, see Nami's Idiot Ball above.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Shiraki
  • Love Potion: Minase uses a spell on Shiraki to get in her pants. The implications are very much explored, and it backfires horribly once she starts asking Was It All a Lie?. In one ending she ends up pregnant with Minase's child.
    • Shiraki doesn't ever figure it out in the game; and those who do—Ito, for example—end up under Kitami's control.
  • Love Triangle: Minase is caught in this one with Imari & Shiraki.
  • A Man Is Not a Virgin: The series actually has it's fair share of male virgins as well as female, prior to their respective sex scenes. Some chief examples are Hiratani, from Origins and several of the guys in Saeki & friends' scenes in Only.
  • Names The Same : Kaori Saeki later shares her name with Kaori Matsuno from Discipline: The Record of a Crusade, another of Sei Shojo's work. 
  • Naughty Tentacles: The demons have these.
  • Of Corsets Sexy: Kitami
    • Saeki in New Testament.
  • Only Six Faces: The girls are not only limited to a single face, they all have the same body figure, and CGs featuring more of them will clearly show that they all have the same heights. It's like they are all clones with different hair and accessories.
    • The anime series mostly attempts to avert this, as the character designer seems to have done their best at making the women as distinguishable as possible from one another. Character models show that, at least for the named characters, they attempted giving each male and female different figures and body types, and all of them are different heights. This is not completely averted however, as certain characters do look quite a bit alike and un-named background characters are sometimes identical to others.
  • Pigeonholed Voice Actor:
    • Imari in the original and Kitami in the Prequel
    • Saeki in the original and Takashiro in the Prequel
    • Kitami in the original and Nami in the Prequel
  • Plot With Porn: More like porn with plot, considering how much Backstory is involved.
  • Post Script Season: Everything post the original 6 episode series is this, as all of the main parts of the orignal game were already adapted.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Nami from the Prequel to an extent
  • Rape as Backstory: Kitami. In fact this is the reason why the entire main series came to be.
    • Takashiro as well. And hers might actually be considered worse considering she gets raped by a demon. Both however, had it pretty bad as both were virgins at the time.
  • Rape Is Love: Mostly averted in the game. Saeki and her lot are the only ones to play this straight. There's an aphrodisiac used in every other case. Also, it's pretty clear in the film that a lot of it is non consensual.
  • Rape Is Okay When It's Female On Male: Shiraki, after she goes all stabby-stabby on Minase.
  • Schoolgirl Lesbians: Kaori, The villain in the Prequel is one of these.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: Minase tries desperately to convince Shiraki this in episode 2. Shiraki, meet edge of rooftop!
  • The Smurfette Principle: Inverted here. Minase seems to be the only significant male character in the entire series.
  • Spit Trail Kiss
  • Start of Darkness: Origins, for Kitami.
  • STD Immunity
  • Student Council President: Shiraki from the original and Kaori from the Prequel.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Kitami Reika, in the original series, is blonde-haired, blue-eyed and has magical powers that allow her to grow a dick. Jody Crowley, in New Testament, is blonde-haired, blue-eyed and has magical powers that allow her to grow a dick. Zig-Zagged in that Kitami is still very much a part of the latter story.
  • The Atoner: Takashiro to an extent; she wishes to atone for unleashing the dark forces years ago.
  • The Ingenue: Kitami in the Prequel and to a lesser extent, Imari in the original
  • The Merch: There are Bible Black sex toys available at J-list
  • Tome of Eldritch Lore: The titular bible.
  • Tsundere: Imari is a excellent Type B example, complete with twintails and Zettai Ryouiki.
  • World of Buxom: Most of the female characters are pretty much at least D-Cup (although not to the level of Gag Boobs) the few that aren't so buxom (Jun and later, Kiriya from New Testament) are still sizable
  • Villain Protagonist: Takashiro was this at her very worst when she actually concieved the human sacrifice scheme
  • Virgin Sacrifice: The other key plot point.
  • Yandere: Shiraki's cute when she's "confessing" her love to Minase, but midway through she goes all ape-shit.
  • Youtube Poop: Formerly the most commonly used Hentai source.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Pretty much every female has the grade A type of this.
