About Brynhildr in the Darkness DVD

Brynhildr in the Darkness collection contains episodes 1-13 of the anime directed by Kenichi Imaizumi, plus OVA episode 11.5.

Haunted by memories of his childhood friend Kuroneko, Ryota Murakami has dedicated himself to discovering the truth behind the claim she'd made before she died: That aliens from other worlds walk among us. Believing that becoming a scientist is the path to the truth, Murakami pursues his studies by day and peers through a telescope at night. But when a girl named Kuroha Neko joins his class, the answers he's sought may be closer than he ever expected.

For Kuroha looks exactly like an older version of Kuroneko, and seems to have abilities that no human could have. But the truth isn't the only thing Murakami is about to uncover, and the secrets he'll learn come with a deadly price. Because Kuroneko was right, and there are those who will do anything to keep that knowledge hidden. And unless Murakami and a handful of unlikely allies can somehow survive their lethal purge, the entire human race could be doomed!

Near future SF story, which could be said to be about doing the right thing. There is plenty of violence and gore as well as some fan service but there is also a very serious storyline. Girls are experimented on to produce 'powers' but are considered disposable needing a drug to survive. Some escape and are aided by a boy who 'does the right thing' and helps them though at some cost to himself. Note this has a sort of happy ending though not for everyone. I think this is underrated because people only see the surface not the depth of the story. But it is well worth watching and I really did like the story.

giv us season two


good show missing a season 2, good drama with action and fan service




Try it.


Give this a try if you like a lot of anime. Total hidden gem. Don't let the "fan-service" tag scare you - there is basically no fan service imo. The story is MOSTLY serious with some relief.

It's about a kid who used to study astronomy and UFOs with a childhood friend until she tragically dies... or so he thinks. He finds her years later but she has lost memory and is on the run from the lab that experimented on her, making her a "witch." The witches need pills to survive or they start hemorrhaging and eventually die (hence the cover art.)

One of my top 5 animes, and I've seen a lot. Give it a shot if it sounds like your thing. It's only 13 episodes.

I was initially hesitant about this anime because it came from the creators of Elfen Lied, which I did not care for. IMO after watching this emotional, gory, rollercoaster of a show it is so much better than Elfen Lied. Complete with a satisfying ending. Unlike other reviewers I think it is best as a stand alone series, not requiring a second season. The conflicts were resolved in violent and fast-paced action sequences that make a second season unnecessary. Brynhildr is more about the human connections that the girls make during their struggle as "witches" then the violence that accompanies them. I cried about 4 times throughout the series. The fan service served a more comical purpose to brighten the darkness of reality in these girl's lives. The human experiment concept was truly horrific to observe. And surprisingly I was not annoyed by the hero in this harem themed anime. Usually the male character is a 2D wash cloth, but this guy actually has some gumption.
