I concur with CrazySunchine... but I like it because there is so much blood and it is close to hentai

Yeah.... it explains why in episode 10. It's so they can see what powers the diclonius have as their body matures.

And there's also the fact it's impossible to make them wear clothes anyway.

I'm a recent fan of Anime, and was recently introduced to Elfen Lied, probably the beginning of this month, and i got hooked immediately. The first Anime series i saw and fell in love with was Dragonball Z, followed by Yu Yu Hakusho, and now Elfen Lied.

It's immediately interesting, and by the third episode i was hooked. The final two-three episodes are pretty much tear jerking. I had no idea the story behind the series was that deep.

Thumbs up Whoa

I must say that Elfen Lied can be said one of the best anime I've ever seen besides Fate/stay night. Maybe my all time top-3 anime....hehe. The last few episodes are heart breaking and I can't bear to watch Lucy depart with Kouta. I surely hope that there will be a second season and a happy ending to the anime since the first season of Elfen Lied was published before the manga was drawn finished. Two thumbs up to the creator of Elfen Lied.

P/S I hope that Lucy and Kouta will marry in the end.><

I'll have to agree with some of what you said. When Lucy turned into Nyu she was the sweetest thing you just grow attatched which makes the end of the series even harder to watch.

The voice acting is phenomenal as well.

I agree thoroughly i truly hope there's a Season 2 of Elfen Lied

Yes indeed, I just watch Elfen Lied for the 10th time and I am always wondering is it Lucy that show up at the door of the inn at the final episode....No matter how many times I watch it, tears always flows down my cheeks...*sob**sob*. Man, I sure hope season 2 will come out soon. I want to search the site of the company that made Elfen Lied and send them my regards and request.

Thumbs up Elfen Lied rocks

Elfen Lied is by far the most exciting and most touching anime I have ever seen. The story line was excellent and I was hooked the second I lay my eyes on it. The scene was bloody good and the end of the episode was the most touching. Finally I was able to see Lucy and Kouta talking face to face and the reason why Lucy was able to endure the hardship at the institution. The whole series was extremely heart catching. By the end of the anime, there was a person standing outside of Kouta house and I bet that was Lucy...hehe^^ Elfen Lied without a doubt is much better than the childish Naruto.

I do hope that there would be a continuation of the anime or a season 2....It's just too nice to watch...Damn it^^

Elfen Lied is by far the most exciting anime I have ever seen. There is so much killing and the story plot was just fantastic. Although there was a lot of hentai in it but I must concur that it was not over the head.

Besides that, I also find the anime to be quite touching cause at the end Kurama chose to die with his daughter who couldn't obtain love ever since she was born. It is also very touching when Lucy confess that the sole reason she was able to endure all those pain until now was because that she wanted to apologize to Kouta for what she did and Kouta in return replied her with the most unexpected words..o.O

This anime is also damn bloody which makes it topnotch and it teaches me that we must cherish our life as we only get it once. I also happen to understand that we must treat those who are different from us with more care as they had gone through a hard time.

But in the end I say Elfen Lied was the best anime I have ever watched compare to that childish Naruto and whatsoever...

I loved the series and would definitely rate it within my top 10 favorite series without a second thought. My only major complaint is that it was too short. The Anime should have followed more closely with the manga.

Sorry to say, but it's highly unlikely that a Season 2 will ever be made. In order to do so would require some fairly drastic re-writing of the later parts of story, and I seriously doubt that any production company would go through that much effort for what is pretty much a finished project.

We can always hope though ^_^.

I concur with you, dude! Indeed like what you said, the anime was just amazing...I also hope for a season 2...Goddamn it, the first season was damn touching *sob sob* I love it the most when Lucy talked privately with Kouta..that part was so nice I think my face was almost glued to the television...hehe^^

While it is doubtful that there will be any more Elfen Lied anime, if they did make more it would more likely be a remake that followed the Manga. With the blood and nudity toned down enough in the TV version for it to show latenight on a normal station instead of a limited access satallite channel. Then toned up again on the DVD version. That was the problem with the original. It was shown on a satallite only channel that was seen by a small percentage of the potential audience. While those that saw it really liked it, most didn't have the chance to see it.
I would love to see a remake with enough episodes to tell the entire story. I thought Lucy and Kouta's talk, which happened much later in the manga, was better than the anime.

Make no mistake. I am a big fan of this series. Easily my top 10. And I saw the hidden morals in it, a lot of them. This being said, this series is totally inappropriate for underaged to watch. They might not be able to get the positive side of this story but affected by its pure brutality.

I personally think this series is better for viewer older than 21 years old, or maybe even older.

I see....So, in the end of the manga, Lucy was reborn? Can anyone give me the website to see the elfen lied manga because I am so desperate to see the continuation after episode 80. Thanks^^.....Man, today I've watched elfen lied for the 12th time....=P. Can anyone also tell me where to buy original DVD of Elfen Lied in Kuching, Malaysia?



By golly, Lucy is the most beautiful female character I've ever seen in any anime.XD....I surely hope there will be a season 2 though

Oh man....Why didn't they show it on the big TV for potential audience to enjoy it?? Seriously, I mean why does they have to limit it anyway? But in the US it was much different as it was the hottest selling DVD ever recorded in the year 2005. In 2007 it also won the first annual anime gathering with the "Best Short Anime Series" title. Goddamn it...I hope there will be a second season with the storyline more complete and I personally think the second season will come out as at the end of the first series, the director general said the project was just starting and this will bring about a lot of uproar if they didn't continue with the second season.

Same here dude...The ending was very touching isn't it. I can't forget the part when Director Kurama actually chose to die with her beloved daughter and how Kouta admitted that he loved the Lucy during their childhood and also Nyuu...It is really damn touching and I must admit it is among the best anime I have ever seen. You have a good eye sight for anime..dude

Cool Hmmm....

When you say at the end of the manga Lucy is reborn.....Does that mean Lucy died...... Nono, I was hoping that Lucy and Kouta could be together forever...sob. I hope that the ending of season 2 won't be like the ending of the manga cause I've fallen for Lucy/Nyuu and can't bear the sight of watching them die.


Past Prime, if you've read this, can you please take a look at the question I asked at page 103....thanks dude.

Thanks a million Past prime...God bless you. By the way, can you teach me how to put a picture beneath my name just like you and will there be any Elfen Lied season two because I've heard a lot of rumors that Elfen Lied season 2 is now being produced at Japan as we speak. Thanks again for the info..

Wow, I was so hooked, I finished watching this in a day.

Lucy/Nyuu definitely touched me the most; her personality, and development towards the end. I found the last conversation between Kouta and Lucy very touching, especially the repeated embraces.

Definitely on my Top 10 list
