wow, a usefull troll, I learned a new word too. I don't agree about this not being a harem, I remember Kana blushing at his words at some point, that's definetly a FLAG -_-
We'll in the future, at the end it will come to a harem:D

The only bad thing about Ecchi is that I can't watch it on big TV while my 11 year old niece is around:<

I think Brynhildr is an anime for a more niche audience. If you find yourself entertained by the fanservice,serious-face comedy and like the characters enough so that you'll care about what happens to them then you're probably part of that audience. It's a strange combination really...It has parts where you shouldn't take it seriously and parts where you should. Quotes like "I saved their friendship by showing a guy my boobs." add to this show's enjoymen because I'm sure it's intentional and thing is,it's working for some of us. Brynhildr is working a bit more as a comedy for me than anything else but I like the characters enough that I care about what happens to them.

A strange little show indeed that most likely gives people trouble when adjusting their expectations. I wouldn't complain about it being rated as 7.5(I'm enjoying it quite a lot and I'll probably give it an 8) but the fact that Black Bullet & Date a Live 2 are rated higher is a bit annoying. Still,it's not that much of a difference...

Why people still creating this topics?
Can't you understand that you can like this series but others can hate it?
I'll give it an 3. Why? Because Gokukoku has a mediocre story and animation, characters quite boring, a bad soundtrack... I don't like it and that's all.
But, bah, I respect those people who like it. Better for them.

I don't mind liking stuff without much reason, but I don't understand why people throw such smart words like midocre story/animation when they ignore that criteria for other shows, isn't 3/10 too harsh?;

Just noticed: Gender Female. I guess that explains your logic and tastes, this title isn't really for female auditory. If MC was a girl and witches were guys that could be different story.
P.S. strange that you don't have Full Moon wo Sagashite and Shugo Chara on your list.

Well for me this show is AVERAGE. I think the overall pattern of this show is so-so, unoriginal and somewhat cliche.
here's the cliche elements:
Promise with childhood friend/crush .
Amnesia, forgetting 'that' childhood moment (i know there's a reason though).
unnecessary fanservice.
(and maybe)The MC behaviour;

The tone is off.
that's the only reason it isn't as hard hitting for me.
Alot of scenes will try to be "serious" but will have a completely different BG and the feel is strange.

Just my opinion lol

Low rating because it's a harem fanservice anime. Takes about as much creativity as a rooster to shit this "gem" out. It's kinda sad though, the show wouldn't even be that bad if it weren't for 75% of it being fanservice/harem. The plot is interesting, the visuals are nice, the execution literally could not be worse. Why would you do this to your work? Who approved of this???

And now people compare this to EL due to the creator. Please do not lump EL together with this.

Btw 7.5 isn't a low rating. 7.5 = good, significantly above average. Generally 8.5+ just means overhyped or fanboy'd to death.

Low rating = 4 or lower.

It could surely be a lot worse. Anyway, pretty much what he said is generally why it didn't reach its full potential.

The average rating on this site is aboutn a 7.4, so its only very slightly above average.

I do think 7.56 is a bit low for this show, more around a 7.8-7.9 imo.

I rated some the new animes this year quite high.
Well, you could say I'm hyped up. But I enjoyed this show(even if I'm not reading it's manga) and I think the concept and the intensity of GnB can't be found in MOST animes. Really depends on your tastes..if you want animes which are happy go lucky or more on romance or 'straight to the point' plots without backstories or fast paced this isn't for you(i think this is the reason why it's underrated,people not in the right place)..

My comments, uhm... The fanservice is just a small matter so i don't really mind..i admit that i watched EL and twas' good..but found similarities w/ GnB..some scenes includes 'complex details? but easily understood(unlike others that requires 5 min explanations...which makes @_@). what i liked is the story and unexpected twist...and the instant death situation.

comparing this anime with eilfen lied is just like comparing full metal panic to amagi brilliant park or kill la kill with tgtl.

They are two different anime.

Actually they do in general, easiest example: yaoi - normal guys would throw up, but girls like it, guys like fanservice with bewbs, girls don't give a shit. You can tell person's gender just from his list, if he likes cute, reverse harem, otome and so on, go ask psychologist if you don't agree.

If this is Fisher Price then Texhnolyze must be... what toy company is considered the most mature?

Well the average SHOULD be 5 in a scale of 1-10, but factors exist such as fanboys/naive people will rate anything 10/10 (a couple of my friends' lists are straight 10s across the board, made me facepalm). Another factor is that people tend to only watch what appeals to them, which inflates the ratings further. So yeah, I understand the "average" rating is inflated, but that wasn't the point I was trying to make. A 7.5 rating should never be considered low, unless we are talking IGN here or something.

For instance, my average rating is 7.7, but that's because I (usually) only watch what I LIKE. If I were to watch anime at random regardless of what it was, the average rating would drop significantly, probably in the 4-5 range.

That's... really sexist and homophobic bullshit. Girls are perfectly capable of liking anything they want to, not just "cute reverse harem otome". You're also seriously ignoring the fact that people of different sexualities exist lol - guys that like guys and are into yaoi aren't weird and "not normal" as you put it. A straight guy that's not a total homophobe wouldn't throw up at yaoi, anyway - he'd just say it wasn't for him like a normal civil person, damn.

And for the record, I'm a girl that's really into ecchi and hates reverse harem, so... Go ask a psychologist if the living proof isn't enough for you.

Didn't I say IN GENERAL, besides I don't see how I would hurt someone by saying girls and boys like different things? I think it's more normal for a girls to not like violence, gore and fanservice like in this show or EL.Isn't it normal for girls liking flowers and boys liking weapons for example? I find it shocking when there are people who don't know that consumers are divided by age, gender and so on. As for homophobe I have no excuses I find it gross when man fucking another man, sorry.

I guess you are unique straggy you have a lot of shounens(supposed to be for boys) in your list, two previous girls have a lot of pokemons, mahou shoujo and stuff in their list.

Equality as long as it proves beneficial, eh? Please. Both genders have their advantages and both are wise to use them. There's no such thing as sexism.

The rating is already too high for this series. The latest episode was quite rushed and every single episode has an overwhelming amount of fanservice. Judging by how it's going, AO ending is very likely. Combine that with the amount of BS Arms do, well, there you have it.

sorry to butt in here but there's no point in reasoning with someone who obviously doesn't want to be reasoned with. save your energy for better things

on topic- this show has low ratings because it panders more than it develops the plot. also, the fan service jokes got old fast and the characters aren't that interesting. i'm a guy and i can't stand the fan service in this show. i just read the manga up to the most recent chapter and there's no way the anime is going to finish up this arc without rushing or without having a terrible anime original ending

Good job completely not understanding what I said. Taking things out of context doesn't help your case.

Both genders have their advantages and disadvantages. "Sexism" is just a word used when your gender is at the disadvantage in any given situation. Sorry if you were too slow to realize this before.

[quote=neehow]You claim you want to know why people dislike this anime. Well here you go;
1) Harem

And on the first reason I understand you are one of those guys/gals belonging to the morality police... By the way, there's no harem here, there is indeed a group of modified girls that try to keep together in order to survive, and a guy that wants to help them since one of them reminds him of a old friend that died.

The only attempted romantic development besides the MC and Kuroha is a from one girl that is jealous of his devotion. does this counts as a harem by your standards??


[quote=neehow]2) Ecchi elements[/quote]
Again with the morality police complains... do you know what is real ecchi elements?? I suggest you watch shows like Highschool D&D, To love Ru, Kämpfer, among others... How I miss the KissxSis show... now that was real extreme ecchi crossing to borderline hentai!!

Anyway, in this show you have a girl that show a bellybutton and others that show their bikinis while on the beach or pool... great ecchi indeed >_<


[quote=neehow]3) Mediocre story[/quote]
I really didn't want to discuss this, but you really think that this story is mediocre??? Then please tell me, what do you think of shows like Blade & Soul or Seikoku no Dragonar??

Hell, I know that it's a matter of opinion, but in my book any anime that has:


* a consistent plot that keeps on developing and its not stagnant
* a story that leaves you wondering who will survive and how will they survive
* a story that makes you wonder who is gonna be their next opponent and what powers will they exhibit
* who despite giving you a antagonist, leaves you wondering who is pulling the strings from behind
* a story that basically pulls your attention every week


Cannot be considered a story with mediocre plot!

[quote=neehow]4) Low budget animation [/quote]
Now I don't want to be a part of the animation control team, however even though I admit that the animation for this show could be way better, truth is that between this animation and the animation of shows like Mekakucity Actors which very clearly uses and reuses the same drawings to animate a great part of the scenes in each episode, I prefer this one... Sorry but seeing the same overboard shaft animation 10 times in a 2 minutes scene is kinda boring in my opinion

Long story short, you just proved you are nothing but a poor little damsel that is criticizing a lot of anime stories (yeah I've seen you on the other threads too) just cause you feel.... embarrassed (I believe this is a good word to describe the situation) over a girl bellybutton, while at the same time you aren't even able to make a analysis with a distant and cold perspective.

By the way, even if the anime had in fact real ecchi scenes, a very strong harem and keeped the current animation, it would still have a great plot behind so, I for one hope this changes happen in order for you to drop it and stop commenting on it

This thread took a dark turn.

I think the biggest turn off for this show is jarring shifts in tone that occur even within the same episodes and the fact that this won't be anywhere near a complete adaptation (though how many anime really are?), so we won't get to find anything out.

For me, it's low because they took an axe to the story, left in all the shitty fanservice, but cut out story important stuff because they wanted to show more tits.

I would give it a 5.7/10 really mediocre story. Just like Elfen Lied I didn't enjoy it, overrated, and I could predict things episodes before an event happened.

Probably because anime's like this are always love it or hate.
With Elfen Lied..... Many people (Including Myself) consider it a masterpiece while others say its increadably overrated
