Description
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 Kuroha Neko!

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!

How will Murakami's life change now that he has been saved by this mysterious girl that claims to be a magician?

Complex, dark, gore and potential

I started reading this thinking that this maybe just normal stuff with some emotional scenes. However, as all manga of this author, Gokukoku no Brynhildr is really one of a kind manga. It has totally everything that could hook you up, from a typical cute innocent girl to counting the day that you are going to die hopelessly, from gory dark to a moment of brilliance. The manga started so well, at this moment, I think that this manga has so much potential to be better than Elfen Lied, and maybe one of the best seinen manga out there.

Great Manga   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

As far as I have read manga, this one really does hopelessness the best. I mean there's always a sliver of hope for the main characters but always only a sliver. The MCs are always just a few precious moments away from death and that constant pressure casts all of their seemingly normal actions in a peculiar light. We have school trips, the beach episode, love rivals and even studying for finals. All these normal high school manga activities all while the main cast knows that they will probably die before the year ends. It's also amazing how well the mystery element compliments this sense of dread. There's a rush of hope with every new lead only to be dashed when confronted with the cold, hard reality. Even their victories and discoveries only seem to postpone the inevitable . However, there is always that sliver of hope that keeps the manga from becoming too depressing.

Even the battles actually play out kind of like a mystery. Without giving away too many details,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there is a girl in the main cast who can see how the people around her will die in the near future. Usually, this girl has a premonition of someone's death (often by the hands of absurdly powerful enemies) and its up to the main cast to work backwards from the premonition, solve the mystery of the death/s, and combine their limited powers to overcome the powerful enemy.
The actual confrontations are usually short and bloody.

The story element, as I've said, is superb. The characters are also fairly well made but, I keep hoping for some more character development. The art is... good, I guess? (I usually don't pay much attention to the art) It has plenty of gore as well, if that's your thing. The ecchiness shows up occasionally but so far I haven't noticed anything explicit. Also, each of the girls, despite each having a supernatural power, is seemingly helpless without the male lead. He buys food for them, provides shelter for them, and seems to be the only one who puts thought into chasing down the precious leads that I mentioned.

Finally, I don't understand where all of the complaints about the main character are coming from. It's true, he isn't as expressive as, say, Luffy from One Piece but that simply isn't Murakami's type of character. Murakami is the the calm, rational type of protagonist and as far as that type of protagonist goes, he is actually very expressive. He gets lost in thought, he gets angry, he cries, he gets worried when he or his friends are in danger and yells out to them in concern, he cracks jokes and, yes, he even laughed once. Honestly, with this type of tragic manga, it would be weirder if he laughed more often. He's at least more expressive than Akiyama from Liar Game or Tatsuya from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei, and neither of those protagonists get flak for not being expressive. Murakami might not be a great protagonist hell, he might not even be a good protagonist (though I like him), but he isn't weighing this manga down with his expressions.

Still Evaluating

From the creators of Elfen Lied, we now bring you... Kiwaguro no Brynhildr...
Featuring.. MOAR gals being experiments and being killed! YAY!
Okamoto Lynn.. You sick bastard...

Lol, jokes aside though, this manga is still in its "infant" stage. We really cannot tell the direction of where it's heading EXCEPT it's similarities compared to Elfen Lied, which I consider a masterpiece on dark psychology. So imma keep checking on this title and let's hope it can be just as good a read.

Mr. McCapers already said it... the thrills are just simply awesome. The way the author wrap th thrill action, despair, romance, n subtle comedy is able to stir the readers completely... the plot is keep twisting in th same arc, makes it more difficult to predict the story n th outcome.
Damn... I must admit that th author is genius in stirring readers' emotion. Thanks for th author n the scanlator... good luck for you all...

pretty good i like the tragedy and timely comedy its EPIC even though its a very heavy manga the comedy makes it very light i think the MC is the only flaw in this the author makes it look like hes a genius but fails to do so you just wont get that kind of vibe no mater how you read it other than that its EPIC!!

Elfen Lied   
Rating: N/A
by ShinyMew

I really like this manga, and it has the same aspects of the author's earlier work, Elfen Lied. Instead of invisible hands, it's super powers that somehow deals with aliens; and later into the manga, it is explained.

In which, I enjoy most of the characters (but I can never seem to remember their names); two of them Kazumi and another girl are really easy to mix up with almost the same hairstyle. Each girl has a super power, while taking away from it's user (example: their sense of morals)

Ryouta is a good character. I just sometimes wonder how the heck does he have enough money to support these girls.

The updates for this story was slow, but now it's caught up. The pacing is good, though it skips ahead without explaining some details. There are girls that you want to join the group, while others you wish wouldn't have been made; but neither is much of a choice seeing as how each one of them has a big chance of being killed.

This is a good story. There's some ecchi when it comes to boobs, but it's more lite compared to the author's previous work. The gore is also lite, it shows more towards the end of the arch; and not many deaths of randoms.

Interesting Plot   
Rating: N/A

This is one of the stories were new characters are introduced here and there and after a few chapters they are killed(in some horrible way). While this is annoying, the plot is interesting, a well paced character development, decent artwork with some subtle romance and comedy to lighten the dark story a bit. It has all the elements to develop into a complex and beautiful story that will make it memorable.
