When he was a child, Murakami was infatuated with a girl he called Kuroneko. She insisted on knowing about aliens and having met them, but no one believed her, even young Murakami was skeptical. One day, she decides to show him the aliens, but an accident occurs and Kuroneko dies while Murakami is left seriously wounded in the hospital.

Years go by and Murakami obsesses on finding proof of the existence of aliens because of a promise he had made with Kuroneko. Then, one day, a new transfer student comes to his class, who not only looks a lot like Kuroneko, but is named Kurohaneko!

To be honest, I liked the anime a little bit, the plot is good, atleast. It's one of those animes where it's not THAT good but you like it for some reason and can't stop watching. I think this is my first review so bare with me.

Characters: (6/10) I don't think a lot of the characters have much of a personality..I think Kuroneko has the most personality out of everyone. Kotori has some personality, Kazumi just spits out perverted stuff a lot, then gets tsundere..She's pretty unique but that's not as much as a personality that anime characters should have. Like one moment she talks read more

When I started watching this show I couldn´t help how much similarities between this series and, the hugely popular, Elfen Lied existed. Both were a story about girls that were trapped in an investigation facility, that ended up escaping and then they find a really nice guy who ended up helping them, because, you know, he is THAT nice.
I really wasn´t much of a fan of Elfen Lied but I gave this show an opportunity anyway, and for the first couple of episodes it wasn´t that much of a disappointment. Of course, while I was watching the first episodes, which I thought were pretty decent, read more

-They are both written by Lynn Okamoto
-They are both about girls and powers
-They are both violent and gory
-There is a male lead with several girls with that power
-The girls are being hunted down by the labs that created them
-Involves graphic violence and emotion themes such as:
social alienation, identity, prejudice, revenge, abuse, jealousy, regret and the value of humanity *off wikipedia
Both are about a harem of well endowed women with special powers fighting their own kind while trying to with the love of the harem lead. Lots of boob shots ensue.
