Bible Black (バイブルブラック Baiburu Burakku?) is an eroge PC video game developed by ActiveSoft and published on July 14, 2000.[3] Sei Shoujo is the original creator of the games artwork, character design and penned the original script for the game.

Milky Studio has since made several adult anime adaptations. The first adaptation, simply titled Bible Black, consisted of six episodes animating numerous scenes from the video game. The following year, a two-episode OVA titled Bible Black: Origins was released, which served as a prequel to the events of Bible Black. In April 2004, Milky Studio produced a sequel series titled Bible Black: New Testament, which follows the exploits of the original characters ten years after Bible Black takes place. The latest OVA adaption, Bible Black Only, consists of gaiden stories explaining what happened to various characters during the plot of Bible Black.

The Japanese game was republished in 2006 as Bible Black Slim featuring extended scenes, followed by a short sequel named Bible Black Infection in 2008. Neither of which the games original artist/writer Sei Shoujo was involved with as he had left Active Soft by this time.

Setting[edit]

The game takes place in an academy rumored to have been the base of operations for a coven twelve years prior to the premier installment. This "Witchcraft Club" practiced black magic in a storage room deep within the basement of the institute.

Characters[edit]

Taki Minase (水無瀬 多喜 Minase Taki?)
The main character. An academy student who discovers the black magic book (known as the "Bible Black") in an abandoned school basement. With this discovery, he becomes a pawn of powerful forces in a sinister plot.

She is chosen by Kitami as a vessel for her reincarnation, and is abducted by her and the Witchcraft club for the Ceremony. How successful the Ceremony is varies, in the game it depends on the ending, while the OVA adaptions seem to imply the ritual fused Kitami and Imari's souls together.

The academy art professor. She’s in charge of the art club, which both Minase and Imari are part of. She’s very popular among the students for her good looks and personality.

The mysterious academy nurse and the main antagonist of the series. She seems to take a liking for Minase, and knows about his experiments with black magic. She was used as a sacrificial virgin in a ritual for the original Witchcraft Group (which was initially led by Miss Takashiro). However, since she was in fact not a virgin (she had been previously gang-raped), the ritual went horribly awry. When the gates of Hell opened, she made a deal with Satan that kept her alive in exchange for her soul. Now, the time that Satan gave her is running out, and she is searching for a new virginal female body to use as a reincarnation.

Nami Kozono's lover who is also a member of the Student Council. She refers to Nami affectionately as "Onee-sama" (Big sister). Junko is the group's first experiment with magic; she was put under a simple spell that caused her to masturbate in front of the whole school during a speech. This both caused Junko social rejection and caused Takashiro to establish the Witchcraft Group.

Taki Minase, an academy student, finds a book of black magic in the isolated storage room of his school. He begins practicing black magic, which has extreme sexual effects that benefit him and his friends, until evil comes forth from the dark craft. Eventually, the origins of the book are revealed, as is the incident on Walpurgis Night twelve years prior, when the evil force was at its strongest. After coming to his senses, Minase struggles to get himself out of the darkness into which he has put himself and his best friend and secret love, Kurumi Imari.

The game has twelve different endings and the storyline often diverges based on choices made by the player, which influence "neutral" endings, "chaos" endings and "law" endings. However, there is only one outcome regarded by its developers as the "true" ending. Bible Black was published in English in 2006, under the name Bible Black: The Game after Active-soft ceased operations.

Anime[edit]

Bible Black[edit]

Bible Black (バイブルブラック Baiburu Burakku?, Bible Black) is the eponymous first OVA adaptation of the video game.

An academy student, Taki Minase, finds a strange book while exploring an abandoned room in the school's basement. With the help of his cousin, he translates the Latin-French writings and finds them to be instructions for dark magic, which is actually a form of Kabbalistic satanism (the translation was not mentioned in the OVA).

Using the magic, Minase is able to make Rika Shiraki love him, as well as help his friend, Ayumi Murai, to get the boy she loves to love her back. Reika Kitami, the school nurse, hears of his magical acts and decides to sway him to her because she needs the book for herself. Twelve years prior, Kitami was used as a sacrifice for the previous Witchcraft Club and only survived after making a deal with Satan. She now needs a virgin girl to act as a vessel for her reincarnation as the life that Satan has given her is running out. Kaori Saeki, the head of the new Witchcraft Club, also notes Minase's magic acts and persuades him to come to one of her meetings with the book. After being possessed by a lesser demon, he brings Kitami with him and she takes over the Witchcraft Club.

Kitami holds private counseling sessions for girls, trying to find the virgin she needs. She reveals to Minase that the two girls she has had her eyes on were Shiraki and Minase's childhood friend, Kurumi Imari. However, since Shiraki is no longer a virgin (thanks to Minase), Kitami pursues Imari, who has been missing school recently after walking in on Minase and Shiraki during intercourse. Kitami also regularly kidnaps the art teacher, Hiroko Takashiro, and performs sexual tortures on her after finding out that Takashiro was the head of the Witchcraft Club that had sacrificed her, even though Takashiro had left the circle prior to the ritual.

After Imari is abducted by Kitami, the lesser demon leaves Minase and he realizes that he loves Imari and must save her. With the help of Takashiro and the Bible Black, he finds a spell Takashiro believes will stop Kitami's evil scheme. By this point, it is Walpurgis Night once again, and Kitami plans to reincarnate herself in Imari. Kitami slits her wrists and has sexual intercourse with Imari as the reincarnation ritual demands, but Minase interrupts it and casts his spell on Kitami. This apparently causes the ritual to fail and Kitami to die from blood loss.

The series ends with Minase and Imari confessing their love for each other and having intercourse. Afterwards, Saeki is seen in the Witchcraft Club sanctuary, planning to steal the Bible Black, which was going to be left in there before the entrance was cemented over. Imari enters the room and destroys the Bible Black with a spell that causes it to burst into flames, then reveals herself to be a hermaphrodite, showing that Kitami's ritual was successful. Kitami then decides to test her new body out by raping Saeki.

All six episodes of Bible Black have since been re-cut as a 110 minute film titled Bible Black Complete Version (バイブルブラック 完全版 Baiburu Burakku Kanzenban?). The series was also involved in a bit of minor controversy when it was aired as a "midnight movie" at a time when other anime films were being played on youth station Teletoon, supposedly as an accident of nobody checking what was screened. Only the first 30 minutes were played.

Bible Black: Origins[edit]

Bible Black: Origins (バイブルブラック 外伝 Baiburu Burakku: Gaiden?, Bible Black: Side Story) is the game's second OVA adaptation, released on May 25, 2002. Set about twelve years before the events of the original OVA, Hiroko Takashiro and Reika Kitami are now students at the school, and several new characters are also introduced. The first episode opens with two female students, Nami Kozono and her lover Junko Mochida, having sex in a classroom after school. In another classroom, Hiroko Takashiro and her two best friends Rie Morita and Saki Shindou are reading Tarot cards. They receive a fortune reading: Great change is upon you. Something will change your life, completely. Nami soon interrupts them and says that they should leave if they are not part of a club. After she berates the group for their interest in Witchcraft, Hiroko warns her to not take Witchcraft lightly. She explains that they are trying to learn the truth about history through Witchcraft, and even asks Nami to join them. Nami is initially intrigued, but quickly brushes it off and mocks them again.

The next day, the school receives a new transfer student, Reika Kitami, a beautiful but naive girl; meanwhile, Rie finds the titular Bible Black in an antique store and shares it with Hiroko and Saki. Here it is also revealed that the girls' request to start a Witchcraft club has been denied by Nami, who is the head of Student Council.

Nami takes a strong interest in Reika, and flirts with her in the bathroom later that day, though this only seems to make her uncomfortable. When Reika does not return Nami's affection, her flirting turns into unwanted sexual advances. After school, Nami offers to tutor Reika in a class she is having trouble with, and uses it as an opportunity to sexually assault her. When a humiliated Reika rejects her, Nami becomes furious - having never been rejected in her life- and storms out.

Hiroko and her friends begin to translate the Franco-Latin-Hebraic text of the Bible Black, and plan to get revenge on Nami for forbidding them to start a Witchcraft club. As a test run, they cast a simple spell on Nami's lover, Junko, which is said to make a young woman "dance naked". Their spell proves successful when the next day Junko becomes aroused while giving a speech for an assembly, causing her to strip down and masturbate in front of the whole school. Nami is horrified by the incident, and becomes suspicious of the group when Hiroko later threatens that she might "be the next to dance naked".

After school, Hiratani, an outcast male student who is obsessed with Nami, asks the group to put a spell on Nami to make her fall in love with him. They do this, and when Nami arrives at school the next day, she finds herself hopelessly infatuated with Hiratani. She asks him too meet her in the Student Council room during lunch, where they have sex many times. Hiroko, Rie and Saki look on through a window, amazed that their magic has worked. The group is approached by other students (and a few teachers) to do similar favors, and they make a fair amount of money.

Desperate for Hiratani's attention, Nami goes to Hiroko and her friends one day after school and begs them to use their magic to make Hiratani love her forever. Hiroko says she will do this, in exchange for a place where the group can practice their magic. Nami arranges for them to use the school basement, and Hiroko agrees to cast the spell. But instead of carrying out Nami's request, she casts a "release spell" on her, causing her to come to her senses and become furious, disgusted that she "fucked that filthy man", and Nami flees the room in anger.

Returning to school the next day, Nami is disgusted to find that Hiratani is still very much in love with her. She orders a group of thugs to beat him into unconsciousness in a warehouse. With Hiratani gone, Nami begins to pursue Reika again, begging her to have sex with her in order to "purify" her body of Hiratani's stench. Reika finally lashes out and slaps Nami in self-defense, calling her crazy.

Eager for revenge on both Reika and Hiroko's group, Nami gains the trust of Hiroko and asks to join their club (now called "Rose Cross"). Hiroko allows her in, amused at how eager Nami is to join them after initially mocking them.

The group plans to eventually summon Satan himself, but realize that they need a test before they move onto a full human sacrifice. For their first ritual, they decide to summon a demon, in order to get Satan on their side. For the sacrifice, they slaughter a stray puppy that Reika had befriended upon first coming to school. However, the ritual goes horribly wrong and the demon proceeds to violently rape Hiroko, thus sending her to the hospital.

With Walpurgisnacht fast approaching, Nami takes advantage of Hiroko's absence and makes herself the leader of Rose Cross. On the day of Walpurgis, she decides to use Reika as a virgin sacrifice that will open the Gates of Hell. She has her thugs kidnap Reika and take her to the warehouse, where they reveal to her the carcass of the sacrificed puppy. Nami gives the thugs permission to gang-rape Reika while she and the group prepare for the ritual, so long as they only engage in anal intercourse with her, thus keeping her virginity intact. One of the thugs ignores her order and takes Reika's virginity anyway, unbeknownst to Nami. Meanwhile, Hiroko wakes up in the hospital and, realizing it is Walpurgisnight, checks herself out. Upon returning, she urges the group to stop using magic, saying its power is far too strong for them to handle. She fails to convince them, however, and is forcibly ousted by Nami and the rest of the group, and is placed by Rie and Saki in a closet until the ritual ends.

Reika is sacrificed, but since she is no longer a virgin, the Gates of Hell react but do not open. Nami, now delirious and hellbent on getting revenge on the group, goes on a murderous rampage and slaughters the other members, including Hiroko's friends, until the Gates finally begin to open. Nami drops her sword on the ground and stands in front of the gates to chant to Satan. Reika—severely injured, but still alive—uses the last of her strength to stab Nami to death. Satan then proposes a contract to the dying Reika: he will allow her several more years to live, if in return she gives him her soul. Reluctant, but quickly dying, Reika accepts the deal.

Moments later, Hiroko, having managed to free herself, hurries down to the basement, only to find that the ritual had ended, and that the members of Rose Cross (Nami, Rie, and Saki included) have all been savagely slaughtered. The series ends with a visibly disturbed Reika, naked and bloodied from head to toe, roaming the town at dawn. The scene fades out with a shot of her looking blissfully towards the sky, revealing her to be the woman that Kurumi Imari and Taki Minase would meet twelve years later.

Bible Black: New Testament[edit]

Bible Black: New Testament (新・バイブルブラック Shin Baiburu Burakku?, New Bible Black), subtitled "The Spear of Longinus", is the third installment of the OVA series. Several Years have passed since Walpurgis Night, and the girls of the Witchcraft Club have all graduated and made their way in the world. Both Shiraki and Saeki become teachers at their school, while Takashiro becomes a nun. Imari has become a police woman, who serves as a psychic investigator for Tokken, an elite Investigation Agency. Her team is looking into a series of murder cases in Tokyo that all happened during sexual intercourse. Saeki restarts the Witchcraft Club with a new crop of girls, but it's unclear at first, if she is fighting Kitami or helping her.

The Witchcraft Club is searching for a magic artifact called the Lance of Longinus that can restore the Bible Black, which was destroyed at the end of the first series. Saeki sends a member of the club named Yuki to seduce a Professor named Yoshitani whose father, an Archeologist, discovered the Lance of Longinus in Morocco shortly before his disappearance. They have sex on the roof of the School, but before Yoshitani can tell her the location of the Lance, a mysterious girl in a white dress appears and kills them by causing them to burst into flames using magic.

Police arrive the next Day and the school is cordoned off. A Detective named Yaminishi Naoto and his superior examine the victims corpses, strangely while Yoshitani's body is burnt beyond recognition Yuki's body is unscathed. The head of Tokken Captain Yuge arrives on the scene and the police vacate, Yaminishi spots Imari in the hallway and secretly follows her to the roof. Upon examining the corpses Imari has a psychic vision of the events of the preceding night, suddenly the mysterious girl reappears and sends a bolt of lightning crashing into the roof. Yaminishi has a vision of Reika Kitami speaking to him before blacking out and being taken to a hospital. Shiraki visits Takashiro who reveals that Imari has the spirit of Kitami sealed inside of her, and has no memories of the Night of Walpurgis years ago.

Investigating a lead, Imari and her Tokken subordinate Aki go to a bank where Yoshitani had a safety deposit box. They are ambushed by a group of armed men who have taken over the bank. The men are occultists after the Lance of Longinus stored in Yoshitani's deposit box. The group's leader takes the two women and a pair of female bank tellers to a bathroom to sexually assault them. He knocks Aki unconscious and forces Imari to watch him rape the tellers, one of whom he accidentally kills while sexually assaulting her with the barrel of his shotgun. The Leader performs a ceremony on Imari that causes the spirit of Kitami within her to awaken, she then breaks free and kills him. Police led by Captain Yuge arrive, and the bank is raided by a SWAT team who kill the remaining robbers. With Kitami now in complete control of her body, Imari steals the Lance of Longinus from the deposit box.

Soon after, Yuki is revived by the girl in white using a magic ritual. Because she shows no health problems, and gives a statement, she is allowed to return home by Hospital Staff and Police. Captain Yuge seeing a connection between the series of murders and the occultist bank robbers, orders Imari's team to research all cults worldwide. He then sends Imari and Aki to search the School again. Meanwhile, Saeki and members of the club seduce the Vice Principle of the School in a successful attempt to make him an agent of their agenda. When Imari and Aki arrive at the school, Imari leads Aki to the basement and performs a spell that renders her unconscious. Imari assumes control of the club and indulges in a sexual ceremony with Aki using the Lance of Longinus. However, the mysterious girl and Takashiro both interfere with the ceremony but with different intentions. The Lance seals itself within Aki's vagina.

Aki is found by Takashiro and Shiraki, Takashiro performs a magic reading on her and discovers that she is the Woman in Red, a figure mentioned in the Book of Revelation. A prophecy predicts she will give birth to a child "stronger than any king in the world", possibly referring to the Anti-Christ. Takashiro then takes Aki to a hospital. It is revealed through Captain Yuge's research that the mysterious girl in white is Jody Crowley, a descendant of occultist Aleister Crowley. The Vice Principle, now under the influence of black magic, allows himself to be hit by a truck in order to be sent to the same hospital as Aki and retrieve the Lance of Longinus.

Later that night Takashiro confronts the Kitami possessed Imari, but is overwhelmed by her. At the hospital, the Vice Principle locates Aki and (after molesting her) attempts to cut her open with a knife to remove the Lance of Longinus. The Vice Principle is confronted by Yamanishi, who is also staying at the hospital and overhears Aki's screams. When the Vice Principle rises to attack him, Yamanishi kills him by hitting him in the head with an IV stand. After getting out of the hospital, Yamanishi discovers he has been taken off of the serial murder case. Obsessed with solving it, Yamanishi decides to leave the Police force and join Tokken. It is revealed that Yamanishi went to the same school as Imari and Minase and had a secret sexual relationship with Kitami until her "death".

Takashiro meets with Captain Yuge at her home. She informs him that Kitami is in control of Imari's body and that Jody is the one responsible for the mysterious series of murders. It is revealed that Jody is the Leader of a cult searching for the Woman in Red in order to bring about the aforementioned Prophecy. In addition to being able to restore the Bible Black, the Lance also acts a compass that can pinpoint the Woman in Red, because of this Jody was also searching for it. While not directly stated, it is implied the murder victims were members of the Witchcraft Club, and people with knowledge of the Lance of Longinus they seduced in order to obtain it. Jody killed them to prevent the Witchcraft Club from obtaining the Lance first. It is also revealed the men at the bank were members of Jody's cult and she ordered the ceremony on Imari, believing Kitami would lead her to the Woman in Red faster.

The final ceremony climaxes with the black magic forces of Imari/Kitami and Jody Crowley competing over the Scarlet Woman. Attacks fly all around while Takashiro and Captain Yuge struggle to defeat both of them and end the dark ceremony. When Jody seems to emerge triumphant, the Lance of Longinus reappears out of Aki and reanimates the original grimoire, Bible Black. The devil emerges to take the souls of contract: Reika Kitami and Jody Crowley. A final effort by Takashiro manages to seal the grimoire while Jody's soul is taken and Kitami manages to possess Jody's body instead. The final scene seems peaceful with everybody content with the world, but in one of the final shots, Aki's laptop screen saver happens to be several images of a menacing Kitami, hinting a possible future installment to the series.

Most of the characters from Bible Black return in New Testament, however, Minase doesn't appear and is only mentioned once.

All six episodes of New Testament have since been re-cut as a 120 minute film titled New Bible Black Complete Version: Restored ~Rinne~ (新・バイブルブラック完全版 Restored 〜輪廻〜 Shin Baiburu Burakku Kanzenban Restored ~ Rinne ~?), and in addition contain extended animation.
