So then… Brynhildr in the Darkness (or Gokukoku no Brynhildr if you prefer). The reason this series initially caught my eye was because it was based off a manga who’s mangaka was responsible for Elfen Lied. Elfen Lied was a pretty awesome serious, in that every moment of the series was intense, filled with gore, and then there were moments of love comedy in there too, and that odd blend made for a pretty engrossing series. The issue with that series, and one that I think Brynhildr also runs into, is that it didn’t really give a decisive ending (and heavily diverged from the manga). Its an issue that really stuck out with this series as I finished the 13th episode.
