  • Too avarage and the presentation was cheap.
    This was not bad, but not good either. The art was very cheap looking and appeared unfinished despite having discounted Korean studios working on it. What they did with the funds they saved is a mystery.

    It lacks substance there was a lot of Time-waste episodes that could've been thrown out easily. It left too many questions unanswered. I got the feeling that they were making the story as they ...

    Briliant, but Clichéd
    Brynhildr in the Darkness starts off really great. There's mystery, perhaps some deeply buried hidden emotion, and some childhood memories which make you really feel for the main character Ryouta, all without giving too much away about the story. This continues on for the first couple of episodes, and then they start bringing in other characters.

    After meeting the two main characters, Ryouta ...

    Watchable but not Memorable
    This was not really my thing, and I kind of pieced that together early on when I found myself looking for distractions rather than watching the show. I couldn't feel sympathy for any of the characters and the violence just seemed to be there to shock rather than to actually aid in the construction of a cohesive narrative.
    It's a pretty enough show, and the story kind of comes together in the end, ...

  • Decent Watch but nothing special :P
    I actually enjoyed watching this anime despite many of the critical flaws displayed by this anime. I've watched better anime but I definitely wouldn't put this title in the "don't watch bin" right away. This anime has a likeable cast of characters and although there isn't much competition about who the main character will end up with. The relationships between the characters within this harem ...

  • Loved it :) plenty of nice stuff, zero boringness
    I loved the fast paced story plenty of funny/sexy stuff, action and sci-fi intrigue, it gave no chance to boringness. Also, I enjoyed a lot the diversity of characters... I mean... of girls, heheheh ;)

    The only thing that annoyed me some few times was the crying of one of the main characters, but everything else worth it.

  • Many more questions than answers
    I liked this anime, however, it really needed 26 episodes.
    Really rushed towards the end, too many questions weren't answered.
    I liked the two lead characters and the first few episodes, but it descended to being almost incomprehensible in the last 3 or 4 episodes.

    Decent idea, with painfully mediocre pacing
    Before I start complaining, the anime actually kicks off pretty well. Unlike the latter half of the season, we get engaged into the story at a decent speed. While the male lead isn't anything too great, the rest of the cast are decent and we get 'some' character development here and there. The OP and ED were also pretty good.

    But as the series goes on the pacing becomes absolutely ridiculous, ...

    Watchable, perhaps enjoyable. Not amazing.
    I'll start with the praise for this series: the main character is interesting; I like it when the male lead is the thinky one and the female lead is the powerful one. I also like its slightly more 'realistic' take on magic. Overall it holds itself well, it isn't exactly unwatchably bad. However there are numerous small-medium issues, that when put together, bring down the series as a ...

    Brynhildr in the Darkness Review
    Honestly, I love this anime. It has action, gore, romance, harem, comedy, sadness, sexual themes, great characters, and a decent plot. It has a nice mix of ingredients mixed into 13 episodes and has a slice of addiction that makes you want to see the next episode. This anime is highly recommended

  • Good but very rushed near the end!!
    Sci-fi basis with romance, action and a harem. Overall I enjoyed the anime adaptation considering the budget they had, and tried to condense it to only 13 episodes. It really should be a 24 episodic series. I am reviewing this after having read both the manga series and watched the whole show.

    All in all enjoyable 4/5:
    Good intro (First one was good and I didn't mind the second)
    Animation was ...
