  • Review title cause for some reason it needs to be long.
    love this show. its happy, romantic, funny, and sad. Wish the ending was different but the ending you get isn't the worst one that could have happened. (TBH i wish she regained her memory and they all lived happily ever after and then it would be a whole other season of just a slice of life anime, but nope.)

  • #53. Elfen Lied, with aliens I guess?
    From the original creator of a niche classic anime, Elfen Lied, comes a very similar story with a lot of variances and direction changes. As to whether or not you enjoy this as much as the original, (assuming you have seen it...) is ultimately your call.

    Brynhildr in the Darkness manages to be an alright science fiction horror/thriller with a cast of supernaturally gifted characters ...

  • Started off good, but ended abruptly
    It started off with Murakami being supposedly reunited with his childhood friend. However, all of a sudden, major antagonists are introduced (kuroha's sister-Valkyrie) and you hardly have any idea what their backstory/motivations are. Just as quickly as they come in, they end up disappearing.

    The ending leaves much to be desired and ends super abruptly. However, it seems the manga for this has ...

  • We Found a Witch, May We Burn Her?
    Production Quality- ☆☆☆☆☆ | Plot & Character- ☆☆☆ | Family Viewing- ☆☆

    Do avoid spoilers if at all possible. Those who spoil for others will be...
    Interesting but underdeveloped.

    Family Viewing received a 2 due to intense scenes of violence, language, and fan service.

  • A good watch, but had potential for more
    Reading the manga before watching the anime left me with a bitter taste in my mouth, although the series was excellent to watch it could have been so much more than what it was.
    The animation I really enjoyed..

    I for some reason heavily disliked that of course his "supposed to be dead" childhood friend ends up being her, it was so obvious and cliche. However a good watch, you'd be better off ...

    Its Actually amazing.
    Thats pretty much it. Its so good. What you want more? Well the fact is that this anime is like most archetype of boy meets girl who leads him to me girl girl girl, and then its a harim. But, the action , story line, back story, and super sad moments will hit you every time. Just go watch it.

  • It has potential and it could be better
    All in all, it was a good series. But what I heard, the manga keeps going. I wish they could of fleshed out the series more instead of cramming everything in into just 12 episodes. There were some plot holes that I wished were filled but hey, it's still a good series.

  • Just stay in the dark
    Did you watch Elfen Lied, but think, "This show needs more 1-dimensional characters, a gibbering, nonsensical plot, and gratuitous censorship?" If so, then this is the show for you.

    It failed on basically every level - as a harem, comedy, sci-fi, horror, action, and romance. It is filled to the brim with annoying, stereotypical tropes that fall flat, a predictably useless, go-nowhere plot, and ...

  • Lovely, sad: recommeded
    First, sorry for my english.

    I like these animes containing a mixture of action, adventure, love and logical drama / sadness.

    I felt like watching him in every episode. In some I was laughing alone, in others I was speechless and of course: sad too.

    It was not the saddest thing I saw and even the most touching, but no doubt it was worth watching, especially the endless efforts of ...
