Gokukoku no Brynhildr Episode 5: Lasers!

Aww…this show is no fun. They started out making Kotori suspicious, but now they’ve gone and blown that away so obviously by having Ryouta point out the possibility of Kana misunderstanding the forecast. Now it’s much more likely that Ryouta is just protecting Kotori when he dies in the forecast and that she’s actually innocent. There’s still a little suspicion, but much less than before.

Anyway, another fight against a high-powered witch next week. I wonder how they’ll manage to defeat this one without time manipulation. I assume Kotori will make herself useful somehow. That being said, why was Neko tied up in Kana’s forecast? Why would AA+ tie her up to kill her rather than just sniping her with the cannon?

Sigh…I can’t believe they’re going with convenient memory loss to keep Neko’s identity secret. And now they’re going to do whatever they can to “conveniently” block the moles from Ryota’s sight. Another interesting thing to note was Kazumi’s statement that Kana could actually move herself if she wanted. Is this related to her power as a witch or is she actually faking the extent of her paralysis? It definitely is strange that a paralyzed girl can move only her fingers…

Well, it looks like the new character has been sent to kill everyone off. Based on the opening theme, she’ll probably join the cast after fighting against Neko once. More than likely, that will go down next week. The AA witch self-destructed, so dealing with the AA+ should be pretty easy, right? Presumably it will be a 3v1 fight, though.

What a dramatic episode. I wasn’t expecting them to reveal all of that stuff about Neko so early. They confirm who she really is and even explain why she lost her memories. I was expecting that to be a bigger reveal than that. Maybe they’re trying to tell us she isn’t all that important of a character and they’re trying to reveal her secrets before she dies. That’s a very unlikely outcome.

Now, the only question is “which button will Ryouta push?” There are three options for him. I would expect him to push either the eject button or the “fate worse than death” button out of rage. Based on the final moments of the episode, the secret third button seems to be the best option, but I was expecting that button to be the “unlock all limiters” button for the main characters to use later.

Ahh, so it wasn’t Neko’s forecast after all. I still think that the way she talked about the forecasts last week was weird. Anyway, I guess the new character is Kana, the cheeky paralyzed girl. I mean…they could have at least given the machine voice a bit of delay when she was typing. I’m not gonna lie…I totally wasn’t expecting the blender when Neko said Kana couldn’t chew food. Thought I was going to have to watch some regurgitated food or something.

Anyway, it looks like the witches are all fugitives and are being hunted down. That’s probably more interesting than a show where the two main characters go around changing the forecasts that Kana sees. Based on opening and ending, there are more characters that need to be introduced, so presumably the next couple of weeks or so will be devoted to that. The end of the episode suggested something wrong with Neko, but I assume the nosebleed is related to the “pills” she mentioned with Kana.
