15/04/09 More News: It's still happening.

05/08/06 Additional News: I've updated the file with a new one. New fonts, less faulty grammar and replaced the old Lilium *opening version* song with the extended one. The transfer went... Swell. =) Please have a look.

Edit: Ok... Things are going too far. I had no IDEA where this submission would end up after posting it here on Newgrounds. And honest to God, I am overwhelmed by the response that I've got. I try to keep up with the reviews and mails that you send me. And if you sent a mail and I havn't responded, I am sorry... There are just so many. T.T

Based on the amount of reviews, I feel there is need for some (even further) explanation of stuff:
1. Some of you feel that the story is lacking and has no real substance. I understand this, since I had to cut it short because of the length of the song (which I had to edit and generaly murder to make it twice as long). The text fly by fast because of the same problem.
2. And as for the gory part... I try to keep open minded about things in the world and I dont get upset easily... Things I find minor offensive, others might find alot worse. And if you open your eyes a bit you'll realize that things like these actually DO happen.
3. Lilium... She's a special girl. Try to have that in mind before you judge her.
4. The Shadow and the Brother... There's a reason why he wanted her brother the way he was.
5. I didnt have any political thoughts with this movie... Whatever happens in the movie does not have anything to do with my political views on anything. Its just a story.
6. I am not a Goth. I am not Emo. I just like writing stories. I hate being labeled.
7. I did write the dialogue... Though it was a very bold move since I've never rhymed in all my life and English isnt my native language. (I'm Swedish for those who are curious.)
8. The song is from the Anime, Elfen Lied. At first when I saw the anime I was a bit stunned. But I loved it in a non-sadistic way (if that's possible). Some of you say my story is identical (or near it) to Elfen Lied's story... Which I find odd. Only similarity might be the excessive violence, other than that... No.

9. ... I am working on a sequel... And it will be alot different from this one.

*End of Edit*

This is my first Flash creation ever and it took about 4 days to complete. I had never before seen Flash in action so I pretty much learned as I went by... Never before have I sceamed that much and cried because the software didnt work with me... Still the thing came out pretty ok.
There isnt really any "animation" in this piece... Its more of a slideshow of sorts, telling of a very important event in the young girl, Lilium's, life.
The main thought of the movie was for it to work as a presentation for my RPG character (regular D&D style... Paper and Pen)... There are some written dialogue in there... Read fast! The script was longer than the song would alow... Enjoy!

Promise my next uploads will contain alot more animation and alot more action. ^^d


Really good art style and story but the best part is that she can commit murder as easily as that with no fear or remorse, my hat Sir is taken off due to my respect for animators. I simply love Lilium she's special and I just want to become good friends with her.

This is pretty sweet and creepy. Nice job on making this, but why aren't there any sequels? It's been over a decade since this was made!

Very Well Done. I really like finding these little pieces. And the meditative mind set about it. I mean whom would ask the shadow, to have darkness undone, let alone that the shadow would grant it. Then the answer turn out that darkness doesn't see it self any different from anything else. And why not, even the shadow just thinks why not. And what he said made her sound like a vampire. Nice store all around. I don't think pieces like this should be judge at all, just be notice as it is. I'm saying its a really good piece of course. But I see soooo many of these HD videos with these stupid, brain dead, TRYING bad jokes, TRYING to be gay, TRYING to give what they think others want, kind've peaces. And so on. trying to just say PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!!!!! instead of making something an artist has to offer and simply this is it, I love it when its simple and you enjoy it. Makes those other high quality loooooong pieces.... "Not that I hate all of them." look like a real wast of time. Oh and about time...... I hate reading and writing. I watched this soooo many times, its like what the FUCK!!!! its not like I can't read it fast, I did, but in my opinion you could've shorten the shorter simple phrases, then the ending ones. But I also see if you did that then it be rushed as well. So you had to pick. It was rushy one why or the other. Oh and I do hate writing, but it also lets me vent so I fine.

This is my first review... because you've earned it.

You took my favorite anime song and a wrote a story to it that I could relate to, deeply...

....I thank you so much. I love the macabre simplicity of fluidity purposed inadvertently to retain. (When you read faster you are more likely to remember what you read a rend be impacted by it)

I look forward to the next piece of art you produce.

People find this review helpful!

I saw this way before I saw Elfen Lied, and both were only a few years ago, funny enough. :?

I never bothered to get into it because the few fans I knew that liked it were kind of twisted and I didn't know what to make of the content... I never knew that Elfen Lied was actually a really dramatic, interesting work of art. :? The anime is too short though and I heard the manga is better... One day I may be motivated to finish it but for now I only saw 4 chapters and pretty much the same content (I heard there's at least a different ending and some character named The Unknown Man.)

As for the flash itself, it seems pretty dark, disturbing, and dramatic itself. :? Other than the atmosphere though, I'd agree it's completely different than Elfen Lied. Elfen Lied was more Sci-Fi Horror along with a character whose like many bullied outcasts, but one who turns their sorrow into hatred and goes along through life killing people, which is sad. :(

This however seems more like the classic Deal with the Devil type of stories, but with some fairy tail like poetry. I find it pretty cool. :)

I can't tell if Lillium should be sympathetic or not with going through something so brutal like killing her seemingly innocent family, although she did seem to regret it at the end... but how come she wanted to be friends with an evil shadow? Did she not know it was evil and/or she was that lonely?

I'm surprised to see this as the most highest rated M-rated Drama movie though and a Newgrounds Classic, I wish I saw it a long time ago. :( Heck, she's even the person in charge of the Art Studio in Pico Sim Date <3 or whatever. XD

Finally, the gothic, dramatic opening song really gets to me... I'm not sure what to feel from it, but people on youtube said it's one of those few songs that make one think of a funeral and remind them of their lost loved ones. :(

I wonder what's going to happen to her now...
