Should You Watch Brynhildr in the Darkness?



This show is like a sci-fi twist on the Wizard of Oz. It’s weird, and at times grossly disturbing. The characters are complex and likable. Toss in some aliens and things just get even more strange, and you’ll find yourself saying WTF and scratching your head. Step it up with some great animation and AWESOME music, and you got yourself some entertainment. 



A  bright high school student is shocked to see a transfer student that looks exactly like his childhood friend who died. Although she admits not knowing who he is, he swears that it’s her and tries to find ways to prove it. However, he learns that she is no ordinary transfer student, and soon meets others like her who are fugitives. He hides them, and together with their extraordinary abilities they fight to survive while unraveling the mystery behind their unnatural powers.
