Synopsis

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!

Oh well Gokukoku no Brinhyldr, what can I say? Well like most viewers what drew me at first to this anime was it was spawned from the creators of Elfen Lied, therefore one usually infers it'll be on par with an anime as great as Elfen Lied. The truth however is that despite some similarities between the two these anime should not be used at all when assessing its rating, for the most part.

Story
The overall story as a series of events, is in fact quite mediocre. Sure the plot was presented in a not so flawed way and had considerably less plot holes than read more

I thought overall this was a pretty good series and deserves a decent rating. Not a perfect one but a decent one. I think it suffers most from failing to meet peoples expectations than it does from the product itself. Yes it was rushed but that doesn't make it terrible.

First off this isn't Elfen Lied. Yes it's by the same author and has various similarities but it's not meant to be a duplicate and doesn't necessarily appeal to the same crowd. This isn't even really a horror/gore series, Inuyasha had more gore and it isn't considered a gore series. Brynhildr is primarily a dark drama read more

Recommendations

-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.
