Bible Black: New Testament (Shin Baiburuburakku 新バイブルブラック New Bible Black), also known under its subtitle Bible Black: La Lanza de Longinus (Spanish: The Lance of Longinus) or Shin Bible Black, is the third entry in the Bible Black anime.

The series consists of six episodes set several years after the events of the first anime series and game. Like its predecessor, it was animated by Milky Studio (part of MS Pictures). The first episode debuted on the 25th of April, 2004 in Japan. Like before, the series was later adapted and dubbed to English, French and Spanish.

Similar to the first anime, a re-cut of the entire series was later released in Japan as a single 120-minute movie (see below).

Unlike the preceding anime series, New Testament is not based on the storyline of the first Bible Black game, but instead follows the lives of some main characters from the game and anime sometime in the future. It also introduces several new characters unique to this series.

Furthermore, many of the scenes do not take place around the Japanese academy seen in previous Bible Black productions. It instead features numerous other locations, like the Tokken headquarters, a bank and a hospital. The school does not even appear in the fourth and fifth episodes.

Despite the overall dark and malevolent tone of the Bible Black series in general, New Testament in particular has considerably more violent themes than previous installments. In contains a large amount of explicit erotic scenes (see below), most of which depict non-consensual sex and torture, including more graphic details like blood.


The final chapter begins.

Years have passed since Walpurgis Night, and the students and teachers of the Academy have all made their way into the world. Rika Shiraki and Kaori Saeki become teachers at their former school, while art professor Hiroko Takashiro becomes a nun. Kurumi Imari has become a member of Tokken, a psychic investigation agency lead by Toru Yuge. Her team is looking into a series of gruesome murders that all happened during sexual intercourse. Witnesses report having seen a ghostly figure near the crime scenes.

Saeki restarts her witchcraft club with a new crop of girls, trying to pursue her former master Reika Kitami's goals and revive the Bible Black spell book. Meanwhile, Imari and her Tokken subordinate, Aki Ichikawa, are caught up in a bank robbery conducted by occult robbers. An impromptu ceremony performed at the scene causes Kitami to again take control over Imari's body. In the aftermath, she steals the Spear of Longinus from the bank vault.

Imari/Kitami then looks for the so called Scarlet Woman to gain the Devil's powers. She identifies Aki to be that woman and captures her for a ceremony, lodging the ancient Spear of Longinus artifact inside her body. The ghostly figure, now identified as Jody Crowley, tries to disrupt her ceremony, and makes a pact with Saeki's follower Yuki Toudou to be her eyes and ears.

All the while, young police investigator Naoto Yamanishi tries to investigate the mysterious events before he becomes a victim himself.

The final ceremony climaxes with both Imari/Kitami and Jody Crowley competing over Aki. Takashiro and Tokken chief Toru Yuge struggle to defeat both of them and end the dark ceremony.



A number of characters from the first Bible Black series make their return. Several new ones make their debut.

Complete Version

Complete Version box-art.

A re-cut of the entire series, titled New Bible Black Complete Version: Restored ~Rinne~ (新・バイブルブラック完全版 Restored ~輪廻~), was later released in Japan as a single 120-minute movie containing (parts of) all six episodes.

This version includes several extra scenes that detail the backgrounds of Hiroko Takashiro, Kurumi Imari, Kaori Saeki and Jody Crowley prior to the events of the series. It also abridges or shortens several parts seen in the episodic version, such as the bank robbery scene. Nurse Eri Harada's encounter with Academy vice-principal Takeshi Oshima in the hospital has been removed completely, as is the erotic scene with Jody Crowley and Yuki Toudou on a roof.

This special edition has not officially made it to Europe or the Americas and remains a Japanese exclusive (censored) release.

Additional scenes

Takashiro's Path to Light

This scene appears right after Shiraki visits her former teacher Takashiro in her cabin. It briefly details some history on Imari and Kitami at the Academy following the events of the first anime series. It then depicts how Takashiro is assaulted by two thugs in a downtown area before joining a monastery of sorts, where she also appears to have sex with a monk. The scene ends with her studying ancient texts and climbing a mountain.

Saeki's soul transfer to Imari

When Toru Yuge and Imari visit the Academy basement during their investigation, Imari flashes back to her time as a student. While outside the school building, student Imari hears a familiar ritual chant and is compelled to make her way to the basement. There, Kaori Saeki, having killed three pigeons as a sacrifice, engages in a ritual. She has sex with the girl using a strap-on dildo, during which her appearance switches between Saeki's and Kitami's. She appears to transfer the evil witch's soul into Imari's body through her mouth.

Imari's psychic police arrest

Just after Imari leaves following a meeting in the Tokken headquarters, boss Toru Yuge reminisces about their first encounter. He is on the street investigating the murder of a young woman, when he sees police officer Imari using some sort of psychic premonition. Shots of the murdered girl being raped and ultimately stabbed by a rough looking thug flash through his mind, before Imari points out the killer from the crowd. Yuge quickly rushes at the man and grabs him, flabbergasted by Imari's powers.

Jody Crowley's history

After Imari/Kitami's ritual is disturbed by Yuki Toudou, who is serving as Jody Crowley's spy, the scene switches to Jody attending a school. It then depicts her at a nightly ritual, where she watches a couple having sex in a circle of candles while masturbating with a dildo. It causes a ghost of her grandfather Aleister Crowley to appear. The next scene shows several men and women having sex while Jody looks on from afar; one in a Middle-Eastern looking building, the other in an outside panoramic elevator. The scene ends with Jody in front of Saeki's Academy class with students Kiriya and Yuki smiling.
