Great. Really liked it. Didn't feel to me like too rushed. According to other
people's opinions, I'd say probably because I haven't read the manga.~

Still better than NGNL

I'm glad, that there are normal people also here.


I have to say the same thing. Thought I wanted to know NGNL gets so much hype. All I see are loli, different kinds of loli. While I get the point of the story, it's done in a meandering way not too interesting.

As for this series, the series was at least entertaining until the valkyrie appeared.
No way to recall

Like I care at all
But it was so loud

You took a stand on every little thing
And it was so loud

I personally liked it but I don't think they executed it too well, or rather they couldn't because it's only 1-cour considering everything felt too rushed (a lot of plot holes and rushed information) and it's unfortunate to see potential go to waste like this. Would like to see OVA's to explain more, perhaps a Season 2 with flashbacks.

(Am I the only one who gets slightly creeped out by their eyes? i.e. when the iris forms a circle)

On a side note, NGNL was over-hyped but wasn't a total disappointment, twas an enjoyable series in my honest opinion.

So many open holes left in the anime. Read the manga if you want to understand it all. Episode 12-13 basically skipped a whole 40 chapters and rushed to the end. Even the fight scene between the neko and neko's sister was cut to a third or something. The whole fight scene was butchered, as well as kotori dieing. Infact the whole episode butchered the whole manga material. Heres some explanation that the anime left out:

Why kazumi is alive at the end.


Explanation for Kana moving


Why Hatsuna lives after melting


The drug explanation in the manga vs anime

Read the manga. It is so much better and explains everything. Plus it is still ongoing

Even though the show was a trainwreck, i enjoyed the adaption because i get to see the characters animated

Watched a 2nd time , just now. It seems the more I watch it the more disappointed I get.

About the cutting , they changed alot of things , most of the things were anime-only and only the conclusion was the same .
Give me a break , we had at most 1 minute fight between the 2 sisters and it wouldnt be called a fight more like "let me hug" and then "booooooooooooom".

The show just turned into such a mess as it progressed, even though the beginning was good, and just so incredibly rushed. 4/10 seems just about enough it deserves.

Yea they would hatch later. The manga is still ongoing. The fight was much better in the manga.

3/5

Blimey, I thought it was a stupid beginning this series, then I read his name, that of Lynn Okamoto and be glad, to slip back into abject sadness seeing how this ends anime series.
Anime interesting, but this rush to narrate with a plot that leaves many points just explained, makes low involvement.
Good but not excellent this production, if it gets a remake and a second season, I will be forced to read my manga one of these days.
Animations and drawings sufficient enough, the study did not surprise me Arms, fielding a very rough job, what a disappointment, we are in 2014.
Final rating is 6.5/10 for now!

Wow so many unexplained things on this last episode. I'm a little lost. Oo

Anyway I plan to read the manga. So should I read it from the start or continue where the anime finished?


You should start at about where episode 5 of the anime was. From that point onwards, they deviated more and more of the manga. Culminating in this super-rushed 13th episode where nothing made sense and they butchered the last 4 chapters, hasped them together as pressed corned beef.

Brynghild never was at the level of Elfenlied, granted, but really...with a *little* bit more effort (primarily having more episodes, so the pacing could be fixed and there was no need to cut scenes), the anime would have been much better. The manga still has some small shortcomings, but it's *way* better than the anime, certainly from episode 5 onwards.

What a crappy ending. Way too fast paced and the final battle sucked.

There were no explanations at all.

Oh, Valkyria was Neko's sister? Oh c'mon!
At least they could had given me a better reason to care about it.

Too bad, at least I liked the characters even though it was an Elfen Lied ripp-off.

But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

The End was so rushed, i only thought what the hell is going on here. It makes me really sad because the anime was great and enjoyable so far, with it's peak at episode 9 which i liked a lot and made me consider rating it by 9. But with those 2 episodes it's an overall 7 for me, thought i liked the end that Kuroha seems to have lost all her memory of Murakami

Kazumi is alive after being sliced in half by Valkyria...wut O__O and along with dat regeneration op abilty girl at the end...rushed as hell in the last minute that they don't even bother putting a proper conlcucion to this trainwreck of an episode....and Neko amnesia made me really pissed off....well are we back to square one?

Atleast mad scientisto seem to have finally found a solution to the witches pill problem so more of them can be saved in the future I guess.

Wow. Always almost people talk about rush when a 25 episode anime skips one raised eyebrow. But this..

Guess whats left is to find a witch that can cure amnesia. Or one that can read the mind and implant memories like Namami. Though Murakami would have to convince Neko that she is his childhood friend before, at which point it would be nearly pointless.

I actually enjoyed this; last 2 episodes have been so intense and fucked up (maybe because it was so rushed...) - never expected everyone to die at the end (suppose the last scene with Kazumi still alive was a dream or something like that; not that it matters since I suppose it will be different in the manga)
2nd anime this season after Black Bullet, so 9/10; will check the manga some day.

Where should I start reading in the manga if I want to pick up where the anime left off? I know a lot of people say chapter 1 since the anime out a lot of material, but say I just wanted to start where it left off.
Kronie is mai waifu.
Enema is my master.
Shadowslave13 is my loli milk provider.
Flume is my dark magic buddy cop sidekick™.
And Afshar was my first MAL friend ;-;

The Nanami arc (starts at the end of chapter 31) is where it starts to seriously diverge from the story, and the major differences start somewhere in chapter 34. I would say start with 31 since I can't think of anything major happening before that that the anime didn't show (other than more fanservice).

If you need more reference, this is just after Ryota gets apprehended at the church, and Neko and Kotomi go rescue him from the police.

Yes, that means they packed 60ish chapters into about three episodes, removing one of the most sympathetic characters (Skadi) in the process.

The only thing I could think when watching this episode was WTF?
After reading the explanations here it makes a little more sense, but that doesn't make the actual episode any less shitty. Now I feel like I should read the manga but I hate to read stuff I already watched :/

Holy shit that was rushed. Well, we do get Kuroha vs Valkyria in a big anticlimatic match/fight.
Fixed that for you.


Oh well, it was really a bit better than what I anticipated(yeah, my expectations were really low).



1. Characters. +1. The only reason I'm giving point here is for noone else(yeah, they all pretty much sucked) than Nanami.
2. Atmosphere. There may have been suh a thing at some point in the beginning, I do not really remember anymore.
3. OST. +1. Ok, there was a great first OP, although the ED was never really fitting until the ver last episode. The background themes weren't that bad I think.
4. Animation. +1. Idk, it wasn't bad, it's somewhat unique even though it wasn't all that great either. I think the character designs were ok, so I can give it a point here.
5. Background story. Aliens created Earth. Coolest background story ever.
6. Storyline. A plot never really appeared, just random things kept on threatening the characters in a kinda repetitive way.
7. Ending. Meeh. At least wasn't as horrible as I expected it to be. I'd have taken out a point here otherwise.
8. Drama. +1. The drama was one of the things that helped me getting to like this anime initially and I can'd deny that it was there until the very end, although the flame almost died out with Nanami for me.
9. Overall affect. This anime really had so much potential in the beginning, I still can't forgive it for wasting it away because of lack of a second season........
10. Bonus score:


Overall score: 4/10. And this could actually be the thing of the season, along with Sidonia..

I lost it at MURAKAMI KICKU.

But yeah, an expectedly rushed wholey unsatisfying ending to a series that only got worse as it progressed. It's mushing together of SoL/Harem/Ecchi scenes with the serious plot also clashed more as the series went on. The main villain also turned out to be a let down as well, as I wanted to know more about the secret society he was a part of and their goals. 4/10

Dang, that was dull. It didn't even feel like a final episode.

Last episodes need to leave you with a sense of exhilaration when your done, this felt like it didn't have an ending, like they just got to this point and said: 'I don't feel like going any further.'

I believe the word "garbage" would be enough to describe this episode. I would lower the score for the anime because of the last few episodes, but due to their comedic value I can't bring myself to it. SHONEN KICK FOR THE WIN!!!!!! P.s. I can't help but want pudding after each episode, I don't know why.

anime series was 100 times worse than manga. There were many things unexplained and unknown. Overall 6/10 grade will not be that bad (cause of 2nd OP ).

God this last episode saved this show for me, it's just that everything finally took place but the ending was so frustrating, lol, god damn it. Scored as 7/10.
The only question for me is:
Did Valkyria survived the blast like Kuroneko did?Unless Neko is miles stronger than her, she should be alive.

To be honest the anime felt very rushed indeed, but what did you expect from something that is going to be 1 cour only, the moment any show is confirmed to be 1cour only is already enough for me to realize that is going to be A LOT rushed and ignore this fact, so I won't score this as how relevant was but how I enjoyed it.

Actually , you can just leave it as a cliffhanger.......and do it later on. It's better , in my opinion.
As an example of fitting most of the content in 1 season , even thou' it got a 2nd one (lets ignore that) , is Haganai. The 2nd season was just a bonus because it got enough cash and fans. The same could have applyed to GnB. They could have left it there and still would have made more sense than GnB.

And I repeat myself : I prefer a cliffhanger that last even for 3 years for a sequel to take place than see this bullshit.
