~This is my first revive, so be gentle~
(I tried my best to make it spoiler free)
So Gokukoku no Brynhildr, the new mange from the author of "Elfen Lied" (which most of you must heard of and maybe even seen and love it like I do)
Gokukoku revolves about a man named "Ryouta Murakami" that lost his childhood friend "Neko Kuroneko Kuroha"(neko for short) in a tragic accident.
One day, a new girl that looks exactly like his childhood friend comes to his class, and what happens from there is history.
So as expetd from the author of Elfen Lied the story here is beautiful.
It is a bit predictable at start, but it gets better with every chapter and I'm sure there's a lot to look for.
The here art is absolutely beautiful. I enjoy every and every page. Amazing drawing skills.
Maybe I'm being too kind here, but the realionship of Neko and Ryouta is really great and most of the other girl characters are also really nice and like I said, same author of Elfen Lied, so I'm sure there is still a lot of depth hiding in the main charcters. The characters desings, also, is really nice.
Neko is just lovely.
I think it depends a lot in the chapter you read. Some were much better then others and some of the chapters in the middle of the story were a bit boring for reading, but just a bit. On the other hand, the thing I still wait the most every week(or more, unfortunately) is the new chapter of gokukoku and most of them are great and even better then what I expected.
And like I said, the art is just stunning and it makes the chapters a lot nicer to read.
Gokukou is a great manga. I really think so. Again, I am a bit bribed from loving Elfen Lied so much, but regardless of it gokukoku is a beautiful manga with a lot to wait for.
The only thing that I dislike about it, is the publishing time.
I don't know why but it has an undefined pulishing time and some chapters even had two-three weeks gap between them.
Apart from that,Gokukoku is a must read manga to all Elfen Lied fans and every one who is looking for a new(and pretty sad) mange to read.
Sorry for the long review, hope you like it and if you do rate it up, thank you:)
This is gonna be my first review so please be gentle.
I just finished reading all the chapters from Gokukoku no Brynhildr and I have to say that I found it pretty cool.
The story was awesome.It may be like Elfen Lied but it is completely different.
Art was not something special,it was fair though.
Characters were amazing.I loved Kuroha and Murakami very much.The bond between all of them was preety strong.Their friendship could overcome all the obstacles.
Overall I higly recommend it to those who search for adventure,supernatural phenomena and maybe a little romance.Those of you who enjoyed Elfen Lied (like I did) will fell in love with this. :) read more
Girls with supernatural powers are pursued by an evil laboratory who make experiments with them. A boy finds them and try to protect them from the organization. Both have lot a sad scenes and dramatic deaths.
- same author
- similarly desperate atmosphere in general
- both of them deal with superhuman powers and secret organisations
- a normal boy and a mysterious girl on the run from a secret organization as main characters
Both Gokukoku no Brynhildr and Elfen Lied involves experiments dealing with young girls that are considered a threat to society. Because they are dangerous to everyone around them, they are ostracized by society. However, one particular character from both series stands out as a prominent 'experiment'.
There is violence from both series with psychological themes, deaths, and other cruel themes exploring the nature of characters and human society as a whole.
Although not entirely the same, both series involves humans with supernatural abilities which are considered a threat to society. They are feared and society regards them as monsters.
Both series has psychological themes as well as gore, blood, and violence.
Both series' main male protagonist also has similar personalities and their lives are changed forever after a certain event.
Both series also has a mysterious like background regarding the origins of the characters, the setting, and how events came to be involving some of the supernatural powers presented.
GnB is very similar to DW, both have the similar situations where the main lead character is brought into a situation that changes his life forever, the male leads have similar connections to the main female lead in their pasts.
They also have the same situation with the collars, if the characters dont eat medicine the collars will kill them (however in GnB, the male lead doesnt have one, only the females do).
Main lead doesnt have any special powers though, it also has the same amounts of gore and violence as well. GnB has a haremish tone to it but no worries to those that dont like harems.
If you liked DW you are sure to like GnB
