Brynhildr #11 — …Again

June 15th, 2014

  

That rallying cry again.

Impressions:

So after the shocking event of “here’s another super crazy witch!” that was last week’s cliffhanger, guess what the cliffhanger for this week is. If you said “Here’s the same super crazy witch, but closer!” you’re right! Absolutely nothing is getting any more exciting or fast paced as it placidly rolls toward its finale, featuring such nonsense as “here’s another girl that within 10 minutes is hankering for a ride on his baloney pony” and “let’s all get naked together for no reason… again.” And then they climb up a giant pole and immediately fall off it. Sure, one can regenerate, but the baddies really just need to ignore them and let nature take its course. I give them a week before one of them sticks a fork into an outlet.

 I suppose there’s also the reveal… again… that Neko’s the same girl that ‘died’ waaaay back in flashbackville, done through the not-artificial-at-all sudden tossing of a tray of juice on her and then stripping her in front of him… again. But even that didn’t come until twenty one minutes in, so they couldn’t have cared that much about it. And this supposed emotional climax for the main characters came with loud male wailing and then they… just talked about how great it was for the span of the ED. No idea whatsoever why anybody’s supposed to care or what this is supposed to change, but hey, he sobbed so it sure was… loud?  

Next Episode:

What an exciting preview.

8 Shouts From the Peanut Gallery

  • Sanjuro says:

    Again… I thought LAST week was gonna be the last time I heard a grown man cry like a baby.

  • What is this says:

    They skipped a rather short arc to get to this one… which is like 40 chapters long… Either this is going to have an inconclusive ending or they’re going to cut out some huge plot elements.

  • Longing says:

    Does anyone else think that this side ponytail looks particularly stupid?

  • wtfwtf says:

    What I find stranger than what they’ve cut out is what they have left IN, you’d think with time so short there would be a bit less standing around doing nothing, though then you risk ending up with Black Bullet I suppose.

    Yes side ponytail looks retarded.

    Animation was fucking appalling this week, janky to the point it made Wake Up Girls look like Disney.

  • anise_punter says:

    Now I need to watch grumpy old men again

  • datchison18 says:

    Wanted to watch this, but it looks bad. Is it bad?

  • FlameStrike says:

    Eh you should probably save some time and read the manga if you’re interested. This anime adaptation has certain deficiencies. This blog does a good job describing said problems XD.

  • The Phantom says:

    I suppose that the epic plotwist of kuroneko being the childhood friend still ranks better than break my flag episode 11: You can see flags because you are in MATRIX retarded thing.

    At least this show has killed some girls if only they stayed dead, and with with regen powers just makes it worse as it seems she can revive anything, what a contrived reset device…
