Brynhildr is the kind of show that relies on a shock value that’s only impressive if you’ve never watched a “real” anime before. I’m going to pretend the same logic does not apply to Elfen Lied, which remains a 10/10 in my book.

Opening. Not translated. But I can sort of understand why, since this is the song in the OP:
Too bad I’m gonna hold it against Mezashite anyway.
Ending. It’s not outstanding, but it gets the job done well enough.
To be forgotten is worse than death. To be remembered for shitty subs, even worse.
CR’s version gets the job done far better than Meza’s lazy effort:
People don’t vanish from this world the moment they die.
Their true death is when they are forgotten by the living.
What, like each other? Keep ramping up the fanservice and this show might turn tolerable, Japan.
Meza, make the scope of the question more specific: “All right, who here has kissed someone before?”
Don’t want people thinking this show is better than it actually is.
“beat me on points” -> “outscored me”
Subs are more enjoyable when the conversations can be construed as normal.
If you’re looking for another line that ties these two together, you’re not gonna get it. Mezashite are kings of edging.
Awful. The point of this particular exchange is that MC-kun is pointing out how Kuroha cried at the sight of the beach, not that she was crying on the beach.
The way Meza has it, she could be crying for any goddamn reason. Maybe she spilled her spaghetti-o’s in the sand — we don’t know as-is. (The sad thing is that would be more tragic than anything that’s happened in the show so far.)
The first line is rather easy to fix: just change “judgement” to “orders”. But that third line requires a bit more…
“I hope you understand that not even your death will pay for failure here.”
Japan really needs to give me better scripts to play with.
She already expressed surprise in her first statement. I get that memory loss is a major theme in this show, but not to this degree.
“Oh, drat.”//”It seems I killed them all.”
Visual grade: B
Script grade: B
Overall grade: B
Despite a few stumbles, Meza put together a rather compelling package with this release. You’ll do just fine with their subs for Brynhildr no Gokuku.
