Okay, anytime you are looking for online manga try onemanga, and then mangavolume. But, onemanga.com has it so I saved you the trouble. It's getting more intense with chapter 81.

Elfen Lied was not one of the best anime published, yes it was great, but not phenomenal.

Thanks for the information but Elfen Lied is one of the best anime produced because it has never stopped winning awards ever since it is published and just won the annual best anime title on the first annual anime gathering 2007 in the USA.

Is there even a single trustworthy evidence that there will be a season 2?

Elfen Lied is great, I love endings like that. Lucy being dead or alive? The decision is yours.

Awards don't always mean something is phenomenal, but I must admit that Elfen Lied is an anime far above the ordinary majority. It certainly deserves to be put in with the cult classics such as Neon Genesis Evangelion and the likes. Considering the success of Elfen Lied, a second season would make perfect sense from a production standpoint, since its already proven that creating it would not be high risk since there is already a strong fan base that would support the series. The major issue that we all need to worry about is whether they do follow the manga storyline, or whether they do yet another deviation albeit at a different point. Although I wouldn't mind a deviation, there is the risk the a deviation could spoil the whole series, and I sincerely hope that this doesn't happen.

Elfen Lied is truly an exceptional series, and a second series would just be too cool for words. I just hope that the popularity of the series is noticed by American Licensing companies so the Manga can be officially translated into English. Waiting for fan translations is making me so tense, I just want more!!!

You may like it but I don't like the curiosity which arose from it. It is true what they post on other forums that the ending leaves majority of the audience in an unhappy state because the ending is not what majority people wanted.

Elfen Lied was not intended to be happy, it is not a happy story, so having a happy ending almost seems to undermine the intent of the entire show. It seems silly to have Lucy go on a murderous rampage, kill dozens of people, and then live happily ever after. Where is the morality in that!? I know a number of people believe that Nyuu and Kouta should be together at the end, but realistically that is not a ending worthy of Elfen Lied. If you want a happy ending, then there are plenty of other anime's out there catering for that need.

Huh? Did anyone asked whether Elfen Lied is intended to be happy or sad?

I went off on a little rant there, my point being that Elfen Lied should have a clear cut sad ending, and that even that glimmer of hope should never have been put into the series, since it does tend to diminish the point of the story. Lucy should have been confirmed dead rather than having a shadowy figure appear at the door. I really didn't like that ending.

I see..

They really should just kill her off if it's meant to be sad..
Yet,there's a shadow that doesn't utter a sound , a weird grandfather's clock re-working, and the music box..

Slowly, I begin to understand why some people dislike the ending.

Good point, Raptor73.

Talking Nope

It is not dislike but rather not satisfied with the ending(To put it in a proper manner). It is never bad for anyone to turn over a new leaf. The only reason Lucy went on a killing rampage because of the mistreating she have undergone in her past and kouta is the only one who acknowledge her. She never wanted to kill from the start but the surrounding and her vectors forced her to become a monster. Lucy/Nyuu is quite a good-natured person. So, it is not a phenomenal if the ending turns out to be happy By the way, there will most probably be a season 2 and rumor says it is now being made in Japan.(hope it is true though)

I don't think that she would live happily ever after with any ending. If she lived then she would probably spend the rest of her life trying to make up for what she had done. Later in the story, near the end of the manga, she gets to truely redeem herself, at least as far as Kouta is concerned.
And, while she shares the blame for what she did, she was really a pawn in someone else's plan. If a Pit Bull that was raised to kill kills someone who is ultimately to blame, the Pit bull or the person who raised it to kill.

Truly redeem herself?? Wow, I wished I could get my hands on a copy of the manga.

Anyway, did Lucy survive in the manga? I want some spoilers >.>

*EDIT*

Never mind, I just found out about the ending.

Spoiler for HEAVY SPOILER! Lucy Alive or DEAD!?!?!:

I see, so Anna actually despise her father and wanted to save Lucy, is it? Really? I thought diclonius undergoes mutation to get those horns and powers.....Did Lucy mother inherited the vector virus too? Kakuzawa was killed by Lucy? How about the female scientist who help Kakuzawa and what happen to that ponytail guy who loves candy and his three Mariko's?
