  • Studio ARMS at it's best ^_^
    This is without a doubt one of my favourite anime series of the tragedy/horror/sci-fi genre of all time by the same animation studio who brought us cult and violent anime classic Elfen Lied I never tire of re-watching it, and will continue to do so more than happily and contentedly enough for many more years to come...The first opening credits theme music and the background music used ...

  • 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 ...

    Intriguing and Awesome!
    I absolutely loved Brynhildr in the Darkness. The way this series plays out is wayyyy different than other animes. This was very intriguing and plays with your emotions!... Brynhildr in the Darkness has an amazing story line, and the characters are pretty awesome. I love the way this anime looks, really hope there is going to more!

    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 ...

    A perfect example of pretentiousness.
    Episode 1 was really interesting and the opening song is good, the imagery that goes with it is not.

    Literally anything past first episode you can safely skip.
    The plot starts off well but starts to show that it really didn't have any idea of where to go with it. It starts jumping to all directions and fails in all places. And it's really pathetic how it starts to rely on shock value to make ...

    Worthy of a follow on season
    I am vastly getting bored of the harem style anime that seems to be the most popular these days because of the typical perry nature of them but this show stands out as something a cut above most. It is refreshing to see an intelligent male character for a change and that the female characters are not constantly subjected to upskirt panty and ass shots. The show actually focussed on the ...

    Great!, excluding episode 11 and 12
    I really liked brynhilder in the darkness as a series as I thought it had me hooked at the first few minutes of the first episode, i really liked the intro and outdo and the characters were all likeable and isolated which meant they had a lot of focus, the anime had lovely animaton and detail, though considering the story line I think 13 episodes was way to short and it could've done with at least ...
