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?

Elfen Lied   
Rating: N/A

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. I think this manga will have a better ending (well, not better, but more happy) than Elfen Lied with how the characters are and working. In which, I enjoy most of the characters (but I can never seem to remember their names). Each girl has a super power, while taking away from it's user. I really want to see how this goes since there are still more mysteries unsolved. So many hints are given out in each chapter, but I suck at piecing everything together.

The Main Male, like others has say, needs more expressions. He may be smart, but isn't he in a house whole of women and he can't even crack a smile; too serious for me to enjoy. I get he trying to solve everything, but there will always be something for him to solve so he needs to take a chill pill once in a while.

The only thing I wish was the pacing is faster. Course it has more and more things happening in every chapter, but I really wish it went faster.

Interesting Plot

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.

Decent manga, but unlikable main character.

Good manga with a decent plot. Survival, horror and suspense are well executed. The main character is a weak, but intelligent male, so he's not very useless.
The art is ok, but one thing that tick me off the most is the character facial impression. The main guy seems to be always on either taking-a-shit mode or did-you-just-murder-my-family mode, he can't even smile once, and his expression to every little things are expressed in an extreme way; very unlikable.

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.

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.
