When he was a child, Murakami was infatuated with a girl he called Kuroneko. She insisted on knowing about aliens and having met them, but no one believed her, even young Murakami was skeptical. One day, she decides to show him the aliens, but an accident occurs and Kuroneko dies while Murakami is left seriously wounded in the hospital.

Years go by and Murakami obsesses on finding proof of the existence of aliens because of a promise he had made with Kuroneko. Then, one day, a new transfer student comes to his class, who not only looks a lot like Kuroneko, but is named Kurohaneko!

And even though she insists on never having met Murakami before, the girl has superhuman strength and seems to even be able to predict the future!

How will Murakami's life change now that he has been saved by this mysterious girl that claims to be a magician?

~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.

Story: 8.5/10
So as expetd from the author of Elfen Lied the story here is beautiful.
It is a read more

Written by Okamoto Lynn, known for Elfen Lied, one should expect some similarities between the two. Compared to Elfen Lied, the violence and exposure is toned town, and so is the art quality imo (in the anime it's censored geh) However, that doesn't really bother me much, as Brynhildr makes it up for character growth... well, until something happens to the character, which would be major enough to be a spoiler so I won't say.

I've only skimmed through the Elfen Lied manga, but Okamoto seems to have some kinda liking for sci-fi experimentation with read more

Gokukoku no Brynhildr happens to be a hidden gem of the manga world, passed up by obscurity, however, this makes it even more appealing of a manga, if nothing else.

Unexpected however, is the "Death Note" style of command and control, cat and mouse esque thinking games also prevalent. Fans of grittier plots will certainly appreciate this particular story without the extreme sense that some horror or more psychological mangas provide. However, the gore and moderately read more

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
