Brynhildr in the Darkness

When he was a child, Murakami was infatuated with a girl he called Kuroneko. She insisted on knowing about aliens and having met them, but no one believed her, even young Murakami was skeptical. One day, she decides to show him the aliens, but an accident occurs and Kuroneko dies while Murakami is left seriously wounded in the hospital. Years go by and Murakami obsesses on finding proof of the existence of aliens because of a promise he had made with Kuroneko. Then, one day, a new transfer student comes to his class, who not only looks a lot like Kuroneko, but is named Kurohaneko. And even though she insists on never having met Murakami before, the girl has superhuman strength and seems to even be able to predict the future.

Gokukoku no BrynhildrBrynhildr in the Darkness   I have one thing to say. Anyone who saw the anime adaptation of this manga in advance like me and liked the concept, but found the implementation horrible. He should definitely recommend the manga. It is far from a masterpiece, but it is significantly better than this questionable anime adaptation. From manga to anime, a lot of scenes were skipped and a lot squeezed together. Here you can see much more relevant dialogues and story-related details. Among other things, you can see a lot more of the characters, as well as the professor who was my favorite. One of the main drawbacks of this work is definitely the SoL scenes that show her everyday life. Not only was their humor weak, but the content was always chewed through. There was a huge lack of creativity and often ended up with fan service and ecchi. These chapters were hard to read, but luckily they weren't big. The story-relevant chapters are solid and have kept me reading. Story The plot had a few twists and turns towards the end. There was nothing I would call a really significant plot twist, it was a minimal occurrence. What did me most of all were the very well thought-out scenes and analyzes of the protagonist and some of the processes of events. These scenes stood out well from the usual. The finale was not particularly impressive, rather average thought out and implemented. Everything that had built up for this was a little more interesting. In the end, the whole resolution was very interesting. Drawings / pictures The backgrounds are drawn quite interesting from time to time. Some details were hidden in the surroundings. However, the characters are drawn very poorly, especially in relation to the finale. The distance between the eyes was almost amusing at times. With regard to this, it was mostly amateur drawings. But nothing that really bothered me. Characters The antagonists were at least interesting in their way of thinking. Nobody had anything particularly deep. The protagonist troop was .. actually from time to time sympathetic. Especially Kana and Kotori were by far the best 2 characters. The protagonist had his brilliant moments, but mostly he couldn't convince me. The conversations between the characters were also very varied, between pleasant, interesting and downright boring. Conclusion It's been a surprisingly enjoyable manga. He had his highlights and also had a certain tension about the plot. I've seen far better, but it's definitely above average.
