This show was just over the top hilarity every week and somehow all the questionable logic just made me like it even more for its extreme absurdities and ironies. I'm sorry but when Ryouta started crying over the fact that Kuroneko had completely lost her memories right after gaining them, I just couldn't help but laugh so hard. I'm definitely going miss this crazy arse show. The final episode may have been an amusing trainwreck but it also dashed hopes of a second season which is a bit of shame.

Poorly developed backstory between Neko and Valkyria. Okay, so they're sisters... and that's it!
they are sister and probably hardly ever meet but they still dont want to kill each other, what more do you need? or does sisters have to live some live and death drama?

Quote:
The lab is terrible at trying to catch the escaped witches. I actually got the sense they (or Chisato at least) were more interested in testing out their newer subjects than retrieving the missing
well its not that they are terrible at trying to catch them is that cant find them. but it is dumb as hell when Valkyria killed the 7 A rankers. i mean she is completely obedient to Chisato, so why the fick Chisato sent 7 a ranker to controller instead of just order her to kill them. also why not use a ficking Ejector thing to control her?

Quote:
* Kotori gets very little presence compared to Kazumi, or Kana, or Neko. So having her demise be the trigger for the finale is very underwhelming.
Not true. she got 2 episode purely dedicated to her and alot of screen time after if anything

Silly things, like Murakami pulling out a paper bag from nowhere and sticking it over Kikako's head, or Neko's awful singing, or Murakami acting like a bab
there will be papar bag in bins of the park. but whats wrong with neko singing? i find that funny and refreshing from all the groom

Quote:
* OP2 sucks, and if what others have deduced was true, an attempt by the producer at a cross-promotion/money-grab.
yea it suck ass. it is certainly promotion/money-grab else why change OP in a 13 ep anime?



but the last ep is crap

They actually met more often than one would think from the anime, since it has omitted a lot of dialogue between them.
like for example.

Spoiler for Some Neko Valkyria Dialogue from the Manga:

Because her Harnest is special, and meant to be not so easy to eject.
She is also not as obedient as you seem to think (just take that mountain she blew off right at the start as an example)

the question is why does she have a special harnest? why not a normal one? and why is there no ejector or something to controll her? i mean what prevent her to go back to the lab and massacre every one? plot hole i guess

and she blew off the mountain before Chisato when out to get her. she is completely obedient to Chisato that she will even kill Neko. which again bring us to the question of why did Chisato sent Valkyrie and 7 A ranker control her when she obey his every command in the first place? it makes no sense

well duh, Nanami's made us to forget her too, for some reason it doesn't work for many of us.

She has it for the Sake of their institutes ultimate goal and also for the sake of having a weapon. They have no problem at all controlling her inside the facility.

Either way it takes longer for her to hang up with that harnest. Just think about economically - If you drive from Texas to Washington would you use a car needing
10 l/100km or 5 l/100 km fuel?

It should also be mentioned that the witches sent with her where specialized in Defense Magic, and Hatsuna wasn't supposed to be one of them either.


She also disobeyed him a lot more than shown in the anime and always sought ways she can let Neko slip under the Radar.

Other than that she could be as much of a klutz as Neko.

You should really read the Manga if you want to know all that stuff though since loads of information was changed or omitted.

Chisato doesn't send those A-rankers to control Valkyrie. He simply uses them as an excuse so that he can take Valkyrie out of the org. Chisato knows Valkyrie can wipe them out instantly no matter how many of them. Chisato wants to ditch the org to fulfill his goal and to do that he needs Valkyrie as his bodyguard. Btw, Chisato's goal and org's are different. He's a siscon whose only goal is to revive his sister.

Sad this ended in such a mess, but it was fun and enjoyable before episode 11. It led me to the manga so I'm grateful for this anime but I don't know why screenwriters/directors do things like this. What goes through your head when you cram 60+ chapters in 3 episodes? It just made me so annoyed that they would do that to a good story. It just downplays and degrades the plot, which I found interesting and much more coherent than this mess. I'll continue the manga as long as it gets translated, but I'm walking away from this with a bad taste in my mouth. 6/10

wow.... They really squeezed 10+ chapters in one episode...
what a horrible adaptation in last episode

at least, we could hear Kana's voice *finally no more mechanical voice*
and they didn't show how Hatsuna healed herself and Kazumi

but I must give compliment to Kotori and Kuroneko at last episode
Kotori's last words are touching and Kuroneko is very adorable and honest when she recover her memories.. so both of them already fall in love with each other since childhood

I doubt season 2 would be here... I think I'll go with manga for now

So I've finally finished the series, and... It wasn't too bad. Wasn't too good, either. I honestly expected Kuroneko's power to bring a Gainax ending though, so I'm a little disappointed.

And you got to admit the first OP was awesome.

Gokukoku no Brynhildr. Last Thoughts

Finally, I finished Gokukoku no Brynhildr after slacking off for about three weeks.

I do appreciate Okamoto Lynn for developing the story, but the anime adaptation produced by ARMS, I think, has too many faults which were worsened at how they chose to close everything with the last episode.

As many of us pointed out, in contrast to Elfen Lied, Brynhildr is more lighthearted that easily outweighs and overwhelms the sinister and darker shades of the show.

After all that those girls went through in that crazy lab, they quickly adapted to a normal lifestyle thanks to meeting Ryouta; the girls are also very forgiving.

At the end of the show, two girls, whom Ryouta truly cared for died, and he witnessed their deaths without much for him to help: the first one was Nanami, and in the final episode Kotori.
The epilogue shows a few positive outlooks among them is Ryouta with his harem taking another stroll to stargazing with now Neko, Kana, Kazumi, and Hatsuna.

Many issues I got after watching the show:
1. Chisato protected Mako from the gunfire when for most of the show was presented as a callous, cold, and ruthless only obsessed to revive his dead sister Rena at whatever means and cost.

2. I'm not bothered if that Council of Elders is still at large and doing their research unopposed, but the anime presented as too very distant to become a real threat for our main cast.

3. Hexengard, the resistance movement that opposes Chisato and that Council. Even if they worked together with Ryouta and his harem towards the end of season to prevent the threat, that doesn't mean they'll remain in amicable terms with each other.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but in the epilogue the inside of their base of operations looked a little semblance to the observatory that Ryouta's harem reside in; I think that was just sort of type of in-joke from the producer's part.

4. Mainly that the girls' suffering overall was for most of the show downplayed iin order to present the lighthearted moments as much as possible.

As far as I perceived, Chisato attempted to pull out a quasi-Instrumentality trope in order to revive his sister.

The Council of Elders are working towards the goal of pulling out their own version of the quasi-Instrumentality trope in order to revive the Prime Alien Lifeform.

The girls just want to live as much as possible to confess their love to Ryouta except that again things turned out mostly bitter for Ryouta since Kotori died, and Neko lost her memories again in order to save Ryouta and the others along with most of Japan being destroyed by her madly-in-love sister.

And, they have to pull out a sort of DEUS EX-MACHINA to either revive or heal Kazumi from absolute death. Or maybe not a deus ex-machina since Hatsuna, after all, was able to restore herself and survived taking Kotori's place in Ryouta's harem.

I guess the show started good, but rushing things towards the end in order to have a proper closure was a bad idea. Anyways, thanks to the anime I'm now eager to try out the manga, and witness how much the path deviates between the two.

If I have to say other things so memorable about this show, then that will be the soundtrack. The soundtrack is mired with rich emotions that touched my heart, and I like the piano rendition of the first OP the most.

Overall, Brynhildr, at times can fill your expectations and at other times will dissapoint you. However, if you're an Okamoto Lynn fan, then it deserves your time and forming part of your collection.

That's the seventh show concluded for the 2014 Spring Anime season.

I hope i don't ever get to watch such a show again, don't get me wrong for the most part it was executed fairly well, but it felt way to cruel overall for me even the aftermath. It was even worse as far as i'm concerned then Elfen Lied, the reason was because while you never quite saw as clearly as in elfen lied what they have been through, the way there eyes where full of love for the smallest things (like a piece of cake) or how they enjoyed the smallest thing had more of an impact on me as to showing what they have been through.
Spoiler for Not to mention extra quirks like
:


I don't know but whenever i saw them i couldn't shake the feeling of a fate worse then death in that lab just by watching them, and that i guess managed to have a harsher influence on me then actual visual imagery.
