This series qualifies as one among three of:
EPISODE 1 REVIEW-Brynhildr in the Darkness really mostly wanted to see because of the animation done by Arms. I wasn’t so enthusiastic to begin with it merely for its story concept. Although with the episode having just released think it is going to be really good as a whole.
Ryota the main character is obsessed with watching the stars since he lost a childhood friend in an accident and it was a hobby his friend loved. She somehow returns or so he thinks but something is not right since the girl he knew as Kuroneko goes by Kurohaneko now. She also happens to be able to have major strength and connections to allow her to know the future.
I am not sure what exactly she is. It is to be believed she is a witch but the series mentions in passing something to do with aliens. At this point not sure where the story is going considering the first episode felt sad and gives a vibe of disconnection mainly since the series is so far told from Ryota’s perspective and he has become a very sad person since he lost the girl he loved as kids.
Brynhildr in the Darkness has a lot of potential I think. If the opening theme song which is amazing despite having no lyrics is any indication. A lot of mystery and drama is sure to appear in episodes to come. Surprisingly enjoyed this new Spring 2014 anime series a lot.
Brynhildr in the Darkness (13 episodes)

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.
