Question Looking for Elfen Lied

Okay, I am not looking for Elfen Lied, although I would love to see the manga published for the US. What I want to know is what animes are like Elfen Lied. I am pretty new to anime, I have only watched about a dozen series, and I have enjoyed nothing like I have Elfen Lied. My second favorite would probably be FMP fumoffu, but that is obviously very different.
So... If you like Elfen Lied, you'd probably like...

Do you want the emotional side of things, or the violent side?

Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu is an excellent choice if you like EL for the story. If you just want cute girls and lots of blood, you should probably watch Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.

I second both of them, and besides these, providing I also liked Elfen Lied veery much, I also recommend u watch Spice and Wolf. If u want more, I would be glad to list several animes like these ones...but if u dont like Spice and Wolf, I'll think it thoroughlly.

This is a question that comes up *a lot.* I think you need to specify what it was exactly that you loved about the series, as there's nothing I would really say is similar in all respects.

Higurashi, I agree, sounds right if you want the mix of cuteness and violence. Then again, it's pretty different in other ways.

I don't think there is an anime similiar to it, I've seached all over... can't find one. But I guess it depends on what aspects of it you like most.

There are plenty of anime that are like Elfen Lied as long as they aren't required to be stupidly violent.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.
I like the dark not overly complicated story line the most about it. I do like the violence, but I don't think I could watch a show that had no plot and just blood. I made a list of all the suggestions so I can check them out.
SaraFilipa Thanks for the web site. I can see how things like Gunslinger Girl made the list, but Please Teacher... I don't see the likeness. It does only have one vote though. I will be checking out most that list too.
Thanks again!

Uh, what? Did you just like, watch the first season only or something? Hell, I found Higurashi FAR more emotional than Elfen Lied.

Elfen Lied deals with quite a bit of technology and science. Higurashi deals with a bit of conspiracy. In those aspects, they're quite different.
