Welcome to the Brynhildr in the Darkness discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Harem, Action, Science Fiction

Produced by Arms

Alias: Gokukoku no Brynhildr

Plot: 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.

To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create character pages.
  • Add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: ?

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: ?

Concepts

Common: Humans, Flashback,

Specific: None so far

I have been reading this manga for a few weeks now; didn't know it had an anime out. Looks interesting.

This anime never had a simulcast. I can't really watch it, but I will bump it for folks who have seen it.

I heard this was a harem series because the picture above didn't have a lot of women. When you advertise harem series, you usually have a poster of lots of girls because that's what a harem series does, marketing sex appeal. I don't mind this cover. It looks nice.

So this was listed a season early?

Pilot was not bad at all. Bit X-Files-ish at first. Good build up an very nice plot so far.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/brynhildr-in-the-darkness has it legal.

@Marshal Victory:

Yeah, my teammates and I thought it will aired back in the winter season. That's why you saw Coffin Princess, Captain Earth, and this one posted really early. I don't trust neregate. Pretty much my final product matches ANN, Moetron, and Anichart, but there is a chance a show gets push off like Sailor Moon and Pupa.

@LHWKnight:

I'll try this anime soon. Just got to work on the spring guide for the front page. Look forward to it! I count on you guys to share your thoughts!

Lost interest in it quick. I'll give the next episode a go. If it's no different. I'm gonna swerve it. It feels unnaturally fast. Like American doing a remake of a foreign language film.

Gonna give it a try

Post by hitsusatsu11 (10,747 posts) See mini bio Level 20

Decent so far, as others have mentioned has a sort of pseudo elfin lied feel to it.

By the second episode, it got to me. First episode was confusing, so I didn't get the anime's big picture. I see the harem is based on girls who have been experimented. There is a threat of being killed in episode 2. To me, it was like this show was based on protecting these girls, potential love interests. There are some unfortunate implications laid down in the 2nd episode.

@Supreme Marvel:

I think you might drop this show. I know you were looking for a harem full of strong women with unique powers. So far, it hasn't delivered that.

2nd episode was slower but felt ok. plot deepens slow. If I was a betting man I would bet the girl is a clone of his friend. As seen by the other "witch"

@takashichea: I'll check out the next one, not improved; then I'll drop it.

I like how the opening is dubstep lmao anyway I am still very interested in where this is going, these girls have very sad backgrounds.

Post by Marshal Victory (2,440 posts) See mini bio Level 13

3rd was ok

Not great. But ok. Seems like this feels familiar now.

@Supreme Marvel: Yeah I get that it feels break neck speed fast now. 3rd did not help that much for me.Ill try one more but this feels very familiar to me.An i can not place what it is.

No way I refuse to believe that she is dead, this anime is trying to play with my emotions but I'm not going to be swayed that easy.

I say bring it on.

Post by hitsusatsu11 (10,747 posts) See mini bio Level 20

3rd epp was great, liking this so far.

This is rightfully Elfen Lied's love child.

Just with far less fanservice and gore.

I feel the girls are more like zombies or corpses animated by magical devices, the Hashnet thing (forgot what's it called). This harem series is a bit messed up which makes it stand out from other harem shows particularly the slice of life/comedic harem shows.

@phantomrant:

Haven't seen Elfen Lied yet. It's on my watch list.
