Gokukoku no Brynhildr fanservice review episode 09, 10

Gokukoku no Brynhildr - 10 (8a)

Three more chances for nudity between these two episodes.  ARMS typically doesn’t waste them.  Oh, and the story was pretty good too.

(They even rolled out a new OP for episode 10, one that is a bit reminiscent of the kind of openings Death Note used to have.  My initial reaction was hope for this anime to extend into the Summer season with a second cour, but every place I’ve checked says this show is not slated to go beyond the 13th episode.  Adding a flashy new OP with just a few episodes left… not unprecedented, but still odd.)

Service-wise, we get a bath scene with all the girls and a tit-flash scene in episode nine, followed by a totally pointless trip to the beach in episode ten to see the girls in their skimpy bikini tops.  And in the case of Kuraha, a long close-up glimpse of her without it.

The gratuitous springs scene of course includes Kotori having her breasts played with by Kazumi while corny music plays in the background.  Kazumi works her way up to seventy repetitions, of which the viewers are present for about ten.

The new girl with memory altering powers flashes her boobs for money (and she doesn’t charge much).  The shot where she flashes is obviously screen cropped and likely to be changed to reveal nudity on blu-ray.

Everyone heads to the beach at the end of episode ten for a brief swimsuit fanservice scene.  About midway through this scene Kuroha loses her top after getting plowed by a sneaker wave.  Naturally, Ryouta and the viewers get a good long view of the topless aftermath.

As far as the anime goes, there are just three episodes remaining and the ending to the tenth episode implies that the story is likely about to get very dark.  I’m not sure if they’ll be able to fit any more fanservice in with the story heading where it is, but if this is it, Gokukoku no Brynhildr has been a pleasant surprise for service fans.

The anime itself has been pretty good despite some sloppy directing and production, which is  a surprise given that the series shares the same director Katekyo Hitman Reborn, a well crafted, stylish series.   The story though has been great.  I’d love to get a second season of this show, and not just for the cheesecake.
