「First Impressions」Gokukoku no Brynhildr

So late on this... keeping a blog updated is sooo hard...

I am well aware of the fact that episode already came out and this is long due, but since it's in my list and I actually am going to be blogging about it, I might as well bring this out first...

That's enough!
     Just shut up and show me your armpits!

Brynhildr in the Darkness is written by Okamoto Rin. Those who are ignorant of the identity of the writer, well you should know him more for his popular work Elfen Lied. That's right folks, when it first came out in January 2012, I jumped the gun and started reading the Manga...

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!

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

The first episode gives us a short vibe of what we can expect for the series. Murakami Ryouta -voiced by Ousaka Ryouta- is a highly intelligent character and a photographic memory. Due to a promise with his childhood friend Kuroneko, he aims to become an astronomer at NASA.

Seems normal to begin with. But then again, Anime don't tend to side with the normal side of things much. The past is brought up as Kuroha Neko -voiced by Taneda Risa- enters the school as an exchange student. The similarities are quite staggering, however the conclusion in the end came to the point where the proof of identity failed.

Death at every corner and people who can forecast these things... Magicians? Or something more?

At the very begin, I marked this of as a watch if it comes out in Anime. As long as everything goes on smoothly, there shouldn't be any problems. The Manga itself is awesome and it gives you that reminisce feeling of Elfen Lied. It's there... believe me...
