elfen lied

ive been reading the manga and i got a little lost at one point. i forget where but i belive around #80 or so, it shows lucy as about 14-16 with a human (girl?) friend. the one that killed her father and wanted to see her mother as at a local art show. now, i was under the belife that lucy was taken to the lab thing at the age of around 8 or so. and later escapes and infects kurama (i think thats his name ) with the horned person virus. is this my mess up or is it the creater's flaw? please help me im terribly confused lol.

You were confused by the fact that all the anime diclonius had pink hair and looked a lot like Lucy. The only time child Lucy was shown in the anime was during her and Kouta's flashbacks. The other child diclonius were all vector virus diclonius. And Number Three, who infected Kurama, was killed as was the diclonius shown killing the Policeman. In fact, Kurama did not even realize that Lucy was out there until after he found out how the virus was spread. That is when they started looking for Lucy. An additional fact not brought out in the anime is that the vector virus diclonius, unlike Lucy, grow up rapidly. Nana was only six at the end of the anime and Mariko was around five. They get their vectors around three years old and age about twice as fast as normal humans and true diclonius like Lucy. At least until they are physically adults. Whether they continue to age rapidly after that is unknown.

Blah, I didn't like the manga ending so much. I'd rather the anime stayed where it is rather than continue that story path. Of course I'd most prefer an alternate story path where it goes a bit less...melty.

I thought the manga ending was pretty good, but I wouldn't mind an alternate anime ending where

A quick question about the ending? Is that Lucy out of the screen door at the end of the season?

Well, as far as I know, it's never been said officially who it was. They probably wanted it to be up to imagination lol, but there really isn't anyone else who makes sense being there huh? Id just assume it's her IMO.

I think that it was Nyu, since Nana did not sense Lucy. Also the symbolism. The Music Box, Lucy's symbol, stopped playing and the Clock, Nyu's symbol, started chiming as if to symbolize that Lucy was gone and Nyu was returning.

If that happens to be truth, I'll be very sad I prefer Lucy/Kaede over everyone else in the story. And just thinking about her dissapearing from this world just like nothing after all she lived and after finally cleared (almost) things with Kohta is...

But the horns can grow back, like in the manga. Besides doesn't bone matter grow back when damaged?

We don't know if they grow back in the anime. I don't recall it ever happening. Don't always count on manga physics being the same.

No. Bone can heal when set properly, but it doesn't just "grow back". That would be regeneration, which thus far isn't possible for humans. Now Diclonius might be different seeing as Lucy was able to grow her horns back (bigger and better than before), but I doubt that even Lucy could recover from being melted into a puddle of fleshy goo. I refer to chapter 104 page 12 if you need graphic proof. Though I wouldn't suggest it, cuz it's quite disgusting, even for Elfen Lied.

Wait so does that mean Lucy had died or lost unconsciousness when they engaged fire on her? So that instead of Lucy waking up, it was Nyu who had arisen?
