THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
DATE. Eh this episode had silly moments and Kazumi is part of it. She does look cute though imo with those clothes and accent.

No but seriously, she looked cute and probably enjoyed the date even though Ryouta didn't see it entirely one as such. On another note, Neko is conscious about her feelings now. I'm not surprised though but I had to lol and her indirect rejection at that random dude at the karaoke.

Too bad they won't be able to replicate the pill within a month.
So all the boys are jealous of Ryouta, not surprised.
Kuroha acted really funny at the karaoke.
Ryouta really is a nice guy, he is even a private tutor.
Lol at Kazumi's reactions in Akihabara.
I wonder what the message in that device was meant for.

Neko's reaction with the slightest touch of Ryouta ^^
Neko's straight forward question on when the boy touched her hand at the Karaoke.
Ryouta was worried enough to visit. Neko doesn't allow Ryouta to look at the other girl's swimsuits :)
That medicine results though, the structure and compound of the medicine o.o
Kazumi cried, guess she wanted to live. She was really excited to go to Akihabara, she looked great in her matching clothes. Her comments though xD
That spoon feeding of omelette rice ^^
The device, those translations doesn't sound too good.

So the pills can't be replicated, that's a bummer. Well they have 1 month to live so they can try to find more pills or maybe the scientist can try to make a new pill that can turn them human.

Kuroha singing was so kawaii ^^

So now we know about Valkyria although briefly, she's much stronger than an AAA and is in the S class rank.

Ryouta turns on the device and the german message says "Kill the witches now", and a map is shown of a location. I wonder what it means and if the location is the lab or something else.

Omg Neko is so cute, loved how she totally rejected that guy without even knowing it xD I really hope her and murakami end up together

Loved the banter between kazumi and murakami like always, never fails to make me laugh, all the characters have such a great relationship. And nice cliffhanger at the end too. Im also intrigued to see what the scientist uncovers when he looks inside the tube with the baby alien in...

How nice. Kuroha's singing voice was too cute and I just love it how she innocently rejected that dude who's making the moves on her. :D

Kazumi with those awesome clothes! <3 Isn't it great the she gets to eat in a maid cafe. With Ryouta too! :3

Although it's a shame that the pills can't be replicated in the shortest time possible.. Half a year is gonna be a freakin' long wait!

I feel bad for Kazumi, it's a fact that she won't be the one chosen by Murakami.
I like this kind of scenes but I know that it's going nowhere as she is not the main girl.

They may get a S rank on them soon!? Talk about never getting a break. Well the pills can't be made in time but hopefully they figured out if that is truly an alien or not.

Such a cute episode :3 With some quite serious revelations.

Nice seeing some despair showing that life isn't easy with how they'll need 6 months for the pills. I still feel the Alien container will play a major role.

Kuroha's reaction to Murakami singing the song she sang was lol and how she owned that guy so much with her directness and innocence XD "Why doesn't my heart beat when I'm touching u?" XD

Seems like Murakami's student has a crush on him XD Should be interesting to see more of her :3 I'd love to see her reaction to all those girls around him XD

Dem asses! Kotori and Kazumi have in their swimsuits *A*

Loved the Kazumi screen time :D Kazumi is just tooo cute :3 Her blushes and smiles during the 'date' were so cute <3<3 I want to be fed by her too >.<

The end was interesting. I wonder what that's about?! And what the map is pointing at? I also wonder who Nanami is? Is she the white haired girl in the OP?

Nice episode..
seeing both Kuroha & Kazumi living a "normal" day & having some fun is heart-warming..
specially after Kazumi's tears..
Ryouta is awesome.. he's trying his best & always cautious..
Dat fanservice *thumbs up*
Kuroha singing cute & funny XD
i like how they removed the opening "visual", it helped a lot in slowing down the fast pace from the previous episodes.
5/5

Bah. Another crappy episode that only adds to the dissapointment.

All the silly girly stuff, fanservice and silly clichés ruin it for me. The author seems to think that just because you throw aliens and conspiracies into the mix, you can make a quality "mystery" anime. There's no thrill, there's no danger, no worthwhile mystery to this. If it was a 2 cour series I'd drop it here and now but since I've watched more than half of it already, I'll suffer through the 20min every week.

Elfen Lied was one of the first manga I read to the end (never watched the anime) and I enjoyed it a lot back then. Shame.

Eh, why would they make several girls fall for Murakami? I really like Kazumi, but it's obvious that she doesn't stand a chance.
I wonder what's the deal with that device. It's like they expected an overly curious human to turn it on.

Damn that sucks, can't get more pills in a month.

Well sort of a semi serious, relaxing episode. Neko was opening up her feelings now, and somewhat clueless during the karaoke scene XD.

Kazumi was cute in the 3/4 of the episode, where she likes to go in the Cafe and Akihabara with Ryouta. Well the ending was good, having that dramatic feel about that phone. First Witches, now Aliens, what kind world they live in.

Neko's unknowing rejection of the guy at the karaoke was hilarious. And so was Kazumi calling out all of the guys in Akibahara as virgin's.

The date with Kazumi was actually really nice. We all know she doesn't stand a chance against "first girl" Neko, but her and Murakami have a straight shooter kind of relationship which is fun to watch.

Elfen Lied was one of the first manga I read to the end (never watched the anime) and I enjoyed it a lot back then. Shame.


This.

This is what I don't understand.

Unless you're a masochist, it doesn't make any sense. The episodes have been filled with this kind of mixture of dark/gruesome scenes and fanservice, clichés and girly stuff. I'm not saying I like every part of that neither, especially if they overdue it or the change is too abrupt, but, all in all, I like the anime overall. That's why I'm continuing to watch it. That's also the only reason one should (continue to) watch an anime.

And that's what I don't get of all those complainers that keep and keep complaining about it, how bad it is and that they don't like it, week after goddamn week. If you truly don't like it, THEN DON'T WATCH IT. If you're hoping that it will get 'better' in the sense you want it: it won't. I've read the manga, and I can assure you it keeps going like it went as of yet (and actually, the anime stayed pretty close to the manga as of yet). And 6 episodes should have given you enough clues to have a firm idea about the anime anyhow: it will continue to have this mixture you find so annoying. It is NOT going to change in this aspect. That's point one.

Point two: Watching anime is not some sort of project you 'have' to finish to get some endresult. It's entertainment. Aka, the whole purpose of/for it is to be enjoyed. If you don't enjoy it, there is no point to watch something that is meant to entertain. It's not work, you don't have to accomplish something or reach a goal or whatever. It's not something you have to learn to get knowledge or will provide you with a skill neither.The only thing entertainment should do is provide you with entertainment. This is rather self-evident.

Thus, if it does NOT provide you with entertainment and enjoyment there is absolutely *no* point in watching it, let alone continue watching it and then complaining here how much you disliked it. I mean, really: you DO have better things to do than watch something you don't like, I may hope? I have never understood this kind of behaviour. Since the whole point of entertainment is getting enjoyment out of it, if you don't get anything like that out of it, then what is the point of continuing to watch it in the first place? There are myriads of other things which you might enjoy; why not check those out, then? Why keep going for something you don't like nor appreciate?

I can't fathom any reason why people would do that, unless they are masochists who like to be tormented and sort of like things they don't like (which is pretty messed up), or one simply enjoys trolling on fora like these.

Mind you, this is not the same as giving some constructive criticism on a series. I've done that plenty. But when I do, it's exactly because I like a series enough TO do that, and point out the things that could make it even better. And I give arguments, not simply complain and bitch about it week after week and that's it. And for series you don't care about and don't like; you drop those. Time is limited, so I'm sure one has better things to do than keep watching something you dislike...

I think this is better than Elfen Lied already (although Elfen Lied was very bland and unpolished as a series from a manga perspective).

Still, the whole witch plot is very dubious at best. It somewhat feels forced...
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.

And you would be doing?


Exactly. I was thinking the same thing. He makes it sound like it doesn't make any sense and is some lame-ass thing that is not consistent, like it was a plot-hole or bad writing... but actually it made perfect sense.

Mind you: I'm actually not fond of karaoke and I personally would not do that, because it isn't my thing. HOWEVER, it does make sense within the context of the anime and the story we saw. People DO like different things, after all, and it's clear that karaoke is something that gives enjoyment to many people, or it wouldn't be as popular (at least in Japan). It stands to reason, thus, that, if you never experienced something pleasant - or at least potentially pleasant or what is considered to be enjoyable with your peers - to try that out, ESPECIALLY if you had a life like a labrat and almost had no enjoyable experiences in your entire life.

Yeah, then I would go for enjoying myself more too. Just imagine it. You have some disease and they tell you: "you have only 1 month to live anymore". What would one do? Just continuing with your life as if nothing happened? Continue to commute and go to your boring work every day? Watch anime you dislike? ;-)

No, I think most would say: well, I have only that much life left, I'm going to get the most out of it. So you spend that as the most enjoyable you can. That can be going out with friends, having more quality time with your wife/husband/kids, travelling to places and doing things you always wanted to see or do, but never got around to it, etc. Those things. In those circumstances, you do what you think will give you enjoyment and what you think makes you the most satisfied with the limited time left - especially enjoyment and new things you didn't experience yet.

It makes perfectly sense, thus, for Neko to want to try a thing out she never tried before, but which is considered enjoyable. Especially for her, it must be far more enticing than for others, because of her past situation where she had no chance of doing it, and even didn't know such a thing existed.

In fact, it's my belief that that is also the reason Kazumi behaves so slutty. Ok, it's because she IS more slutty, granted, but the reason why she is so adamant about sex is because she wants to get laid, before she dies. That too, is understandable. I mean, if you were a virgin, and had an appetite in sex, wouldn't you do more your best to get laid if you only had a month left to do it? She's extremely slutty from a normal standpoint (the other girls have another personality, obviously), but the fact that she is *that* overbearing in regard to having sex, is mainly due, I think, to the fact she simply has little time left, and still would like to do it with someone she likes (the MC). It's her version of doing a karaoke. :-)

This show keeps getting better and better for me week after week.
yes it is not sooo dark\mysterious as many people thought it would be, and yes it is filled with these silly and girly moments. but for me this is really working for the best.
I am fully interested in the characters, and I think some of them have one of the best character development in this season at the very least.
and I think the silly moments play a major role in the character development.
when you see each one of them trying to live her life and have fun but then they keep reminding you that they only have so little days left to live.
I can't really explain it in words but this mixture of serious and silly moments in this anime is what makes me deeply involved with the characters.

they focused on Kazumi in this episode and now I freaking love Kazumi ...
She sort of like Murakami so she is acting all casual and slutty around him but she is actually shy due to never interacting with normal people before so she doesn't talk to anyone else at school (which was kind of a shock I guess), she acts tough when she hear the bad news about the pills as if she wasn't expecting anything and she doesn't care but the truth is exactly the opposite and she goes out to cry by herself, and finally that "date" that Murakami considered pretty normal and sort of boring was LITERALLY the most fun she had in her entire life .. I can not think of that and not get emotionally involved with Kazumi.

I now love Kazumi for a different reason than her accent and her hilarious moments.
and it is the same for the other characters, although I'd like them to give some more screen time and character development for Kotori and Kana but i still like them both.

I am really digging this anime.
and this episode is 5/5

Uh regarding that statement u made about Kazumi being sluty there is actually an even more valid reason why she acts like that but to do so would mean major spoilers for those who not have read the manga so il write it in the spoiler tag below



U know i dont care what the reason those guys that are doing the research on these girls are, even if it is to save mankind or conquer it, i dont care, there is no justification for any reason of that. I rather die than forsake my humanity becuase without your humanity what is the point of living you are basically dead anyway.

and regarding there behaviour to some people spending time in a karoke may not seem much but compared to what horrors they went to, it is a blessing, especially if u never got to experience the real joys of life. sometime the most simple of small things can bring u the greatest joy and if people cannot understand that, than i feel sorry for them

you nailed it !
it is just like you said and it is very reasonable.
and I think this is one of the strong points of the show that gives it a much more realistic side which is why I like this anime and am emotionally involved (not sure if this is a correct term??) with the characters.

Just came by to see if it's a recap episode because of how it started. Glad to see it is not.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

I'm really enjoying this show. I like all of the main characters even if Kotori hasn't been developed much yet. Plus, Murakami is a competent character, who actually demonstrates his intelligence on a regular basis.

Kazumi was cute in this episode, she wants her shot at happiness before she dies, or before they have to take on the S rank witch.

I'm looking forward to the next episode as always!

I know what you mean, and, in fact, when writing that post, I first said the exact sme thing:



And I know where it's coming from, because she literally says so, at one point. But, when I thought about it, it didn't make much sense if you really take it at face value. I think one should rather interpret it as something either being said deliberatly, to confuse you-know-who, or, as a genuine wish, but more as an afterthought, a mental sigh of an irrational longing that is not meant as a serious 'striving for' contemplation (and action). I don't think that's the actual driving force for her behaviour thus. The reason is as simple as it is straightforward:






In any case, some people are a bit too quick in depicting what the characters do as 'unrealistic'. Of course, to some extend it is: many clichés ARE typical of anime, after all, and this is an anime. But for some character-traits and interactions shown, some 'clichés' actually make sense and are more in line with the story and what you could expect from the extreme situation they're in, than in many other anime. So Kazumi might seem as the 'typical ecchi-craving character' like we often see in other anime as well, but it actually makes more sense in *this* anime THAT she would behave the way she does.

Honestly, I was a bit disappointed with this anime. And it's no coincidence that the first SoL-themed episode is also the worst episode for Gokukoku no Brynhildr. No coincidence whatsoever.

Kazumi is trying so hard yet Ryouta keeps avoiding her advances towards him.
As usual for a harem main if he could be called that, he is blind to love or sex but i guess that's anime.
Even tho the other girls are attractive as well they appear to be clueless to sex since they where sheltered in a lab.
Tho they might be clueless they have instincts which aren't really showing, again as usual in anime.

this episode was very good
many information were passed and the relationship between the characters is increasing
Kazumi is a tsundere of hair pink and pervert, I'm currently liking of your personality
but my favorite is Kuroha, always kawaii, she reminds me a bit of Tohka of Date a Live
I also like personality of Kana and Kotori
Ryouta has a great harem

But my main point is that we both agree that some people are too judgemnetal on anime char clichés that they dont really give it a chance to actually see the development more, i mean u cant expect to solve everything all at once.

An okay episode, though the girls being half-naked inside the building made me lol xD.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.
