Lmao Elfen lied is a good show but it's not that gory or have much nudity just go look for ecchi/gore anime & you'll find much worst then elfen.

Show was okay but story was a bit weak and.... wait you just finish watching this.... it's been 7 years...

I watched the anime earlier this year and found it to be both intense and satisfying.

what i liked most about it is probably the fact that, despite the fact that it has nudity, its not of the arousing kind.
it was as if i had too much respect for these characters to even think of fucking them (similar to how i respect Lighting from FFXiii)

then theres the theme of the show, bloody carnage in an otherwise peaceful environments, its bi polar but it works.

i just wish i didnot start watching it after i came off Death Note because i was in the mood for smarter animes.

Borrows very heavily from Akira, but then many animations do.

It's incredibly flawed and only really known for it's violence and gore, which was a shock back then but after playing dead space I can't really be affected by most of it.

Elfen Lied is completely overrated, which is disappointing since japanese horrors are usually really good psychological thrillers about the characters minds rather than the audiences shock. Absoloutely nothing happens for ages, not even any build up or tension, just nothing. When something did happen past halfway through I was past caring and stopped watching. If you like gratuitious tits and violence then youll like it. Id recommend Higurashi no naku koro ni instead since its everything Elfen Lied isnt.

I'm not going to lie, I really dislike the Elfen Lied Anime.

Compared to the manga, it sucks, hard. Especially since the second half of the series is so rushed in the anime. You can really see this in the last two episodes.
I recommend anyone who watched the series to read the manga also, it really explains more of the back story and the characters have a more in-depth character development.

Elfen Lied would have been much better without all the nudity and intense violence. Also, the anime's ending was frustratingly unsatisfying.


Even the most righteous, logically sound individuals are subject to poor reasoning skills and deluded mindsets.

I would give it a 6.5/10.

The voice acting was HORRIBLE, at least in English, and I've heard that the Japanese voice acting sucked as well. The nudity was pointless and made me feel gross because the nude girl is either slaughtering people, or she has the mental capacity of a 2 year old and/or retard. It ended on multiple cliffhangers, and was left completely unresolved. I personally did not care at all for the character models, idk, maybe that was just the typical anime character style at the time, but they looked weird to me.

The main guy in it was a complete tool. Half the time he had no idea what was going on. His cousin, who was IN LOVE WITH HIM, was also a whiny bitch.

I watched it a couple years ago. Even though it's somewhat funny and perverted with some very violent flashbacks, it's pretty sad.

Although Gory and violent, Elfen Lied is byfar one of the better animes ever created.

The story itself is extremely deep, and tests the morality, and HUMANITY of humans in refrence to anything Foreign.

God... WHen Lucy told the main character the truth it was the most heartbreaking thing ever.

Which is the reason why the manga is better.

Seriously, the anime ended halfway around where the manga was at.

elfen lied at it's core is a dr jekyll and mr hyde esque romance,with too much fanservice in a show where little girls get torn in half.

the themes of this show are nature vs nurture (lucy admits her species will wipe out human race and she infected a random chick with the Diclonius gene ,chief wants to wipe out the human race),genocide,racism,humanity's capacity for cruelty


if it is a gigantic horrible typo mah bad

Yeah, I would put Elfin Lied as more of a horror themed show than a romance. As for the fanservice, well it's obviously a show aimed for adults, so complaining about fanservice in an adult show is moot.

the themes of this show are nature vs nurture (lucy admits her species will wipe out human race and she infected a random chick with the Diclonius gene ,chief wants to wipe out the human race),genocide,racism,humanity's capacity for cruelty

While it's true that Elfin Lied has plenty of those themes you mentioned, the anime in itself is more blood and nudity more than anything else, particularly in the first couple of episodes.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Maybe it's just me but when it comes to split personality issues with characters, the evil personality seemed to be the genocidal version of the said character while the good personality on the other hand...is good.

Granted Lucy/Kaede has three personalities and the third was actually genocidal.

They seemed to do that with other series as well, I mean I wonder if Gemini Saga was a hornless male diclonius. That or it might have inspired Lynn with that idea.

Nana actually has the "voice in head" syndrome as well but she chose to ignore it, tells you something about "nature vs. nurture" kind of thing although Stockholm Syndrome helps in her case.

I've never loled so much in life with this Anime...
Lucy kinda reminds me of Asuka Langley if she was on crack and had no sense of humor..
The definition of a Sadistic solution, is usually someone painted all over the walls with their own carcass and blood, all this to be loved?
Makes me wonder if that's where the movie Chronical got the idea from, naww that's just a coincidence, it has a similar concept...

Aside from not always making sense and jumping the shark at every driven moment, I still kinda enjoyed it, a point of view is usually seen with the most unexpected, but don't judge me own i how i feel in seeing young children having their torso being ripped from their body, not to mention her motives are usually a Genocide of HATE and revenge, it just soo unfortunate she can't take the heat when people piss her off..

Where's a shrink when you need one?

Her real name is Kaede not Nyu. Nyu is the name she gets after the people on the beach find her and al she can say is Nyu. And she gets reborn as the twins at the very end if you read it.

To be fair, Hetalia is pretty much a yaoi fodder created to attract fan girls. Also, Naruto practically ruined itself with series of pointless fillers and made attempts to have villains sympathetic even when they nuked the village and committed genocides. Even Obito can burn in hell for all I care when it's all said and done.
