Brynhildr #07 — The Filler Episode

May 18th, 2014

  

An entire episode dedicated to bloody nothing.

Impressions:

On the upside, nobody did anything mortally stupid this week. On the other hand, it’s because the most interesting thing to happen was nothing. Literally nothing. That all the crap from the end of last episode led to nothing. Besides that, the rest was practically a montage of time wasting filler crap, only each segment lasting 5-6 minutes instead of a minute or two total. Kuroneko went to karaoke, everyone dressed up in swimsuits for literally no reason, and then he went on a daaaaaate with Pinky. And yes, each of those compelling and exciting things required about a quarter of the episode.

You also have to respect how committed to the evil organization persona the evil organization is. They could use their holodecks to have conference calls wherever they want, but instead of a sunny island with maybe some curtains between them if they’re worried about not having convenient sorta-face-obscuring darkness, they choose a desolate, windswept cliff. Because they are the darkness and the evil. OoooOOOohhhhHHH!

Next Episode:

What an exciting looking preview.

    >he didn’t realize it’s about the girls and not about the ketchup

  • Anon says:

    There is no “red Line” predictable Plot for the watchers, because the writer like to play with us.

    He can use this “I can see the Future” girl, and follow what she said, or not.
    Now these pills. They cannot recreate them, so no Harem Anime… or the MC miraculous find more pills…

    in short: predictable Plotline? No Sir, random is the Master!!

  • Anon says:

    yeah, they give us Hope, just to get crushed next episode

  • ZakuAbumi says:

    But it’s jam.

  • The Phantom says:

    It was obvious since the beginning that this was going to have a Senjou no Valkyria kind of power-up and fights, otherwise why the hell would the author name it after a valkyria.

    Great episode, and very good that the author makes an effort to make everything unpredictable, it keeps the tension up.

    Hahaha you reviews are hilarious; I dont think ive ever read a review of yours that didnt have any sarcastic quips in it. Is there anything (preferably an anime example) you’ve watched that you’ve actually liked on an intellectual level?

  • Longing says:

    Wow… watching this show try and give the characters depth and be dramatic is absurdly entertaining.

    I can only hope that the writers know their show is garbage and have decided to see how terrible they can make it in an attempt the keep the audience enthralled. It’s the only reason I can think of to have absolutely nothing of interest happen after a cliffhanger.

    Also, the dramatic sound effect and panning shot of the paralyzed girl’s facial expression was hilarious.

    I wonder if you still take any enjoyment in it.
