Actually to me i was not bothered by the gore, since i read so many reviews that the opening scene is going to be craziest opeinings you will ever see. You can say that i expected the gore that is why i never really was bothered by it. I mean this is not the only gory show out their

Berserk
Gantz
Samurai x trust and betrayal those are some other gory shows.

Elfen lied really did not need that many deaths, in the show, but i still enjoyed watching it. I would say that the show was more about characters than the story. The story was just getting rid of disclonious cause they are a threat to man kind.

Actually one of the deaths i kind of found humorous, it was when one of the guys son, i mean the teacher at the college was about to breed with Nyu, and when you see Nyu turn into Lucy, and the guy takes of his wig or what ever he had, she explodes head. That was awsome.

Elfen Lied is one of the craziest shows I've ever seen. No I don't mean that because it has gore, but because it is basically a harem anime with gore. XD

And whoever thinks this isn't a harem anime, think again. We have the loli, the klutz, the bitch (and her alter ego, the ditz), and the childhood friend (or cousin in this instance). Smells like harem cliche characters to me. And all of them living under the same roof, that happened to be an inn at one point, and I think you get the picture...

Granted though, it might be harem anime, but it isn't the typical one by far and away. That's why I think it's crazy and thus far one of the most memorable shows I have ever seen. ^_^

It's NOT a harem. To be a harem you need 3! The loli and the 2nd diclonius are digging each other. The only ones who want Kouta are Yuka and Lucy.

I am a fan of Elfen Lied. I really enjoyed it and I was not put off by the excessive violence. I actually realize that this is just an anime and that it is not real. I can watch animated gore if it is done right. Crazy anime, not really for me...however, I really think that they did a good job with it. Also, as some people have said, maybe I was not as affected by the gore because of the reviews that read prior.

Too much of the killing was gratuitous, and none of it was brutal enough.
People's limbs seemed to slide right off their torsos.

It's really hard to justify anybody surviving an encounter with Lucy after you establish the fact that she's an unstoppable juggernaut in the first ten minutes.

Especially that screwy assassin guy who always hung out at the beach. He was stupid for sooo many reasons.

So far there isn't even a hint that it will be made.

You can cross your fingers with the rest of us.

And I hope that they change the ending too; it was just too cheap how they got rid of the story-carrier. Her commiting a suicide when she had found her partner and everything looked better for change? Yeah, right...

There has been no mention of one. But, if they do have a second season I hope that they have enough episodes to properly introduce the other characters. While Nozomi wasn't necessary for the first season, she would be very important for a second season since she taught Nyuu the song "Elfen Lied" that Lucy sang. And, if they kept the basic manga ending, I would hope that they had a little more about the twins.

Just watched all episodes.
First thought was "What's that about? Mass nudity and gore? This shall be so good?" but I'm really glad I kept on looking.
Only the open ending made me cheer up a bit after what happened till there.

I originally started watching the first fansub to see what all the talk about nudity and blood and gore was about. It was Kouta's flashback when he heard that Nyuu's horns were real that hooked me. At that point it was obvious that he had known her in the past and I continued watching to find out about that. For all the blood and gore, I think that Elfen Lied showed the importance of family, even if there was no blood relationship, and of love and acceptance. I think, near the end, that Lucy was deliberately becoming Nyuu, because as Nyuu she could live at the Maple Inn, but she was afraid that she couldn't as her real self. In the manga, at least, Lucy remembered most of what happened at the Maple Inn.

@ SpaG

You know what; just to be sure I re-downloaded the last ep to see if there really was some kind of a twist and there was. I simply assumed the moment I saw that ear-piece flying that they really took the cheapest way out (which I began to suspect from ep 5), so I missed that last 3 second scene. Guess it wasn't such a disappointment after all.

So when do we get Elven Lied "Erolutions?"
