  • Interesting but no back story...
    So, I really enjoyed watching this anime but there was NO backstory about anyone's family or really anything else for that matter... Plus, you don't know how anything really happened at the end. There was so much unknown but if you just ignore that and just focus on the main story, you should be fine.
    There is some perversion in it so you probably don't want to watch it around children. Just ...

  • Rushed but Tense, Beautiful Opening Images
    Some "fan service" scenes could have been removed to avoid the rush toward the end, but the pace is still okay. It is tense, and the anime staff successfully create a reasonable ending. Having read the manga, I think the anime did a good job in showing the cruelty and hope as in the manga. However, to have an ending within this number of episodes, the insanity of some characters are brought to the ...

  • Complicated to the extreme
    This show tore my emotions up, down, left, and right and then shoved them simultaneously down my throat and up my butt... That said the story was amazing, the drawing was amazing, and the plot was well thought out and well written. My only problem is that its left me wondering and wanting more.

  • Great piece of Science Fiction Drama
    I really enjoyed this one. THe characters were interesting enough, THe plot was interesting and spooky and there was enough real emotional depth in this essentially harem style anime to keep it going. Another gem an adult can watch in a sea of stuff for 12 year olds.

  • The series (much like others) that had a good start with a ruined ending
    Initially to the beginning of the series, the show sets up a good plot, interesting characters and a decent setting somewhat blending both sci-fi and supernatural elements well. The protagonist isn't some cliche guy who always fights for the damsel in distress rather he uses his intelligence to manoeuvre around tricky situations; which I quite like. Halfway in the story begins to feel more and ...

  • Dark, tragic and suspenseful... and AMAZING
    So the story is rather dark, tragic, and to some extent gruesome (though very mildly as due to the censorship which i actually think for a change takes AWAY from the show). I mean it starts out with a little boy losing his friend in a way that he must blame himself for the rest of his life....
    With out giving anything away to the best of my abilities; the show takes a boy who has a perfect ...

  • disappointed, tries to force the feels
    I really wanted to like this and at times I did , but in the end this was a waste of my afternoon. I'll probably look into reading the manga since many seem to state that its actually pretty good. I dont recommend brynhildr unless its the only thing left to watch on your queue.

  • Well...that was crap.
    This show is a trainwreck, a collision comprising of ecchi, sci fi, horror, harem, and goddess knows what. This story tries to be all that, but it failed in every aspect. We never quite know what is happening and for what reason, whether it be the creation of witches or to why they are hunting them down for their harnests, and the occasional unexplained power, to where the f*ck were the aliens and ...

    Great Anime, upsetting Ending
    Yeah obviously if you have seen this entire series the ending probably made you cry and angry.. I loved the series overall don't get me wrong, it was great. Kana is my favorite as she is cute in how she is able to communicate, but as much hype that got built into this series as it did, the ending was infuriating for me personally, however, I heard the Manga is a lot better and worth reading. I ...
