THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Those mood whiplashes in the final 5 minutes, though.

I felt a pain in my heart. Funny scenes about cakes, classwork and so emphasized conversely the cruel fate of Kuroha and Kana. It seemed a dim light that would be blown out by extreme darkness. I think that this anime series has an atmosphere of depression and melancholy. I enjoyed it well until now. But I don't know how long I can stand this darkness.

It's a really good adaptation of the manga

The opening is not dubstep. Its electro with an opera singer in the background.

I am reminded of Saikano for some reason, especially with the medicine and nosebleed.
Little Kuroneko was really adorable, how she was all "prepared" to go to the ocean.
Nice to see Kana, I was surprised how fast she could type for a paralyzed person.
The ejection scene was gruesome.

But seriously, again a pretty good episode. I really like how they adapt the manga.
I imagined Kana's voice to be more deeper or something like that, but I think Suzaki Aya also does a pretty good job on her.

I enjoyed this ep, I find the animation good and I just love the OP although not the biggest fan of the ED.

The eject part was kinda rough she turned into a glue or something and only her skeleton was left.

Poor Cake T_T

I love the scene when Ryouta saw Kuroha while hanging those clothes.

Surprised that the witches will somehow "melt" when they got ejected.

I love the OP and ED.

The fact that Kana is paralyzed is rather sad and that the other witch got caught and turned into toothpaste was also sad.
The scenes with the cakes and the one in the classroom were rather funny, but it was weird seeing her nose bleed.
Overall the episode was really nice.

1. The computerized voice box that kana uses is quite good. Sounds like a real person

2. It was hard watching the strapped down witch melt like that

3. The premonition forecasting in this ep was anticlimactic. Mirai nikki did better than this.

I'm kind of curious how different flavors of blended cake would taste XD

I knew what was going to happen when she got ejected but seeing her turn into goo was still kind of unsettling :s

With this rythm, the base and the pace change...
It's definitely dubstep. look at the other song of nao https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZSUFSmGgb0

Well ther's still the possibility that the full song take a 180 turn to finish with opera only...

This show is very good at balancing dark and disturbing themes with light-hearted ones so far. Will definitely keep watching.

Good episode. Kana surprised me greatly. I wonder what they going to do with that human they captured. It doesn't seem right they would kill her since why go out of the way to capture the person. Wonder what happen to Kuroha at the end is her powers acting up? Well I'm looking forward to tthe next episode.

I'm still not sure about this show.
It seems that the only mistery here is if Kuroha is Kuroneko or not..
The deaths predictions and savings are only side situation.
It seems that the show revolves around the hard friendship between these witches and a normal guy that can't last forever, as the torturers are trying to hunt them down.
It's really a copy of Elfen Lied, but EL was more intense since the beginning.

But they're only 2 episodes, so let's see where we're going.

Kana is a unique character, I sympathized with her!

ugh the cake part was disgusting. poor kana.

@billybob300c absolutely agree ont he premonition forecasting part.

oh and they have to save a lady in red and right at the school they run into a lady in red that is going in the direction where the accident is supposed to happen. are they stupid?

i really dont see what the hype is about so far since this show is average overall.

2.5/5

This anime is getting interesting. This episode was way better than the first, and I love the setting. Those guys in @ the lab are so cruel, now why I see she's so scared. The paralyzed girl is funny, didn't expect that kind of tone from her.

Hmm... this is getting more and more interesting. Although it is kinda weird how Kuroha's eyes only have one expression... I hope there's a reason behind that. The part where the witch got ejected was gruesome, but kind of a refreshing change to what I watch nowadays lol. The premonition scene was pretty predictable, but still cool. Man, those poor girls. Living by themselves away from society so they aren't found and killed. I haven't read the manga, but it's listed under 'Tragedy' which I won't mind, as long as they do it right, and 'Harem', which I mind. Very much. For now, I'm looking forward to the next episode, where I hope they introduce the major complication. I have a feeling that Kuroha's nosebleed has something to do with it...

Couldn't help expecting something deep of the tension Kana created, setting her fingers on the keyboard slowly... And then, duh.
Also kawaii cake!

This show definitely contains more comedy that I expected. And less horror. But I guess we'll get more scary stuff later? It kind of resembles Another, so I anticipated similar setting and all. Maybe I was wrong (it isn't tagged horror after all). But whichever way it takes, I love the show so far.

I sincerely hope that this doesn't become like Elfen Lied. I know a lot of people like Lied, but it was disgusting and I never finished watching it. I'm liking Byrnhildr so far and I hope it keeps on staying this way. I don't mind the action and Horror in Elfen Lied, but I felt like that was the only thing it had going for it. Those two things also don't blend well with the ecchi.

I'm thinking that Kuroha Neko and kuro neko are one and the same, I'm also thinking that Kuro Neko was already dead when she was revived some scientific experiment.

Weird how the only amount of blood seen was out of Kuroha's nose considering it's the Elfen Lied's author. Then again the eject scene was pretty brutal 0_o

Glue and cake

Even now, the opening is still epic.

This show definitely has similarities to Elfen Lied...girls with weird powers..evil lab that does inhumane things to said girls..girls escape from lab and meet someone they shared a childhood with..

Not that that's a bad thing, cause I'm really enjoying the show so far. ^_^

If this was reality I would make sure that they became public knowledge. Show what she can do and than travel across country and post it from some where's like an internet cafe.. Send it to TV Reporters. The only way to protect those being hunted for doing nothing wrong is to make it public.

But than it would be a short anime, manga, or light novel. Too much Hollywood Drama in it because common sense never prevails.. like the stupid horror movies where they knock the villain down and run instead of killing the villain when they have the chance.

So far I am not sure on this one as I really hate bad ending anime's and I can't tell if this is going to be one or not yet. I really want everyone that is involved in that lab to be sentenced! They are nothing but cold callous murders who are so sick they refuse to even call it murder but ejecting! He is the type of person that would kill is own mother!

So judging from what happened it seems that Kureha might be a clone or something like that.
And the darker part of this anime showed as well that seemed like on nasty professor especially the way he got rid of Kureha's friend.
The paralysed girl was pretty rude but funny to watch.

And where did they get power from?
The village was abandoned so there should not be any power.

Yeah I find Elfen Lied is really disturbing and disgusting at a time. This anime is close to Elfed Lied's story but with more light hearted instead intense like Elfend Lied.

Awww Kuroha is so cute when shes crying over a cake!!!

Ryouta Murakami needs to stop thinking about how Neko Kuroha reminds him of Kuroneko and start thinking about everything else at hand.
That is literally dragging down his supposedly intelligent character and my enjoyment of this show.

Great episode! Sadly it went way too fast, feels like it was only 10 min ;_;
And that delicious cake getting blended D:
Kana seems to be an interesting character with cool outfit.

Wtf that girl in the lab melted just by opening that capsule? Back in her neck.

Knowing the author, the series is definitely going into the tragic route.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

This feels like your typical action anime rather than mystery. Still enjoyable though and quite watchable on a weekly basis. I just hope that they can end this nicely in 13 eps since it seems like there's a much bigger story than what has been shown. At the very least they should tell us if Kuroha is Kuroneko and why she lost her memories and such.
