Storyline

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! Written by Shakti Prasanna Mishra

"Brynhildr" flirted with a good story but fan service killed it.
3 June 2020 | by dameon_greenSee all my reviews

The story concept was really interesting however the execution was imperfect and the "Fan Service" was distracting enough it kept detracted from the story. If they had left a few of the secondary characters subplots centering around their loneliness and desire to experience the joys and pleasures of youth before death it would have been enough, the cheesy tropes and random naked girls subtracted from the promise and depth.

Pros:

  • Solid Music.
  • Good concept and some challenges were believable.
  • Character concepts were interesting.
  • Sacrifices and losses.
  • One of the few shows a harem makes sense.
  • An anime actually used basic lifesaving techniques.


Cons:
  • Excessive "Fan Service".
  • Predictable.
  • E10's loss and mid-show resolution was poorly handled.
  • Male protagonist is clueless beyond reason.
  • Disappointing ending.
