Brynhildr in the Darkness

Plot: Murakami lost his childhood friend, Kuroneko, in an accident when they were children. Now in high school, Murakami is a member of the astronomy club. A girl named Kuroha Neko transfers into his class, and she looks just like Kuroneko -- but she insists that she's never met him before. And when she protects him from being killed, he finds that she is an artificial "witch", endowed with special powers. She and several other witches escaped from a laboratory and are on the run. Now Murakami wants to save Kuroha in return for saving his life... (A-)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: B-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood (cover your eyes for some of this if you're touchy like me), sexual innuendo/situations

Other: Adapted from the manga, "Gokukoku no Brynhildr" (which I have not read).

The story has potential, but it takes a couple strange (not in a good way) turns. Also, I was put off by the ecchi fan service that they throw in and try to pass off as "comic relief".

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 1.5/5
