Oh Gokukoku, how Elfen Lied you are. This is show is edgy, and not in a good kind of way. I guess 13 year old angry kids new to anime could get a kick out of this as it does have the shock-factor and tits, for, as I said; 13 year old angry kids new to anime.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying the fuck out of this show, but by the end of the day I can’t take it seriously at all. Lynn Okamoto and ARMS seems to have a hard-on for making every series be as “shocking” as possible, hilariously so, I mean, death pills? girl’s about to drown in a pool? can cut anything within a 6 meter circle? paralyzed lolita tsunderekko who loves caeki~?, all with it’s (in)appropiate fanservice overload?
If you’re hormonal andor looking for a gore-but-not-really fest, Gokukoku No Brynhildr and it’s amazing opening is the way to go, and even if you’re like me and can’t take this seriously, it’s sure to get some laughs out of you. For now, I’ll predict that it’s going to try one-up the previous episode and boy, am I looking forward to it.
