i choose to see it as the lonely girl that kohta fell in love with when he was a child...

it's no longer the angry, hate-filled lucy that nana knows so well, so nana would not recognize her... plus, with both her horns gone, perhaps she is totally changed...

i don't think it's the nyu we know from early in the series... in that, i don't think it will be the little girl sounding total innocent... but it is the new lucy that is filled with nyu good-heartedness and both sides of the personality's complete love for kohta...

whatever you believe, it's a beautiful ending and you know, a) she didn't die, and b) the director general is still around and still a crazy sob, so he will still be trying to breed and destroy the human race... plus there were at least up to number 35 of the girls, so there are probably some other crazy ones coming too...

does anyone read the manga? how far does the manga go?

AFAIK, the manga went far beyond the anime and produced a far more sadistic Lucy. I think it's ended better than the anime - there's more closure, I think.

the anime ended alot earlier than the comic so anime had to have another ending and even if there is anime season 2 the story will be totally different since alot of things moved to a different path in the anime series in the late eps.
however its not very likely there will be a season 2 on anime and almost impossible to have further story after the comic ending.
I personally like an ending that explains wat happened to everyone and clear all the mysteries,well but EL is still a very good series and i love it

O RLY?

My gosh, I shouldn't have believed what those people said. They told me that the manga was more sadistic than the anime.

The only major problem would be the fact that Kouta has his memories back much earlier than in the manga. It would not be that difficult to have a second season that was fairly close to the Manga and with the manga ending, but it would need 24 or more episodes to properly introduce Nozomi and cover all the material. That said, unless there were record breaking DVD sales for the first season, it is highly unlikely that there will be a second.

hmm ya,thats actually the biggest problem is he had gain back the memory so quick and forgiven her. About kurama death i think they can just make up something like Meriko saved him with her vectors or watever to keep the story going
i think if they want to they can just follow up with the comic line when lucy got her horns blown off after meriko's death and she came back without horns as nyu and live with kutar for half a year b4 the meriko arc came and try to take her
just i wonder how will the "bug" of kutar memory get fixed(maybe skip the part that kutar forgive her @ the end of comic and just put kutar to take the bullet directly from lucy?)
i m not sure about the sales of EL DVD but i think it wont be that impressive to be recording breaking so i guess the chance of getting a season 2 is still low

It is very unlikely that there will be a second season. Since it was shown on a satellite channel there was not a large audience in Japan and I don't think that the DVD sales were enough to warrent a second season. And it did not generate a lot of merchandise sales. It is unfortunate, because I would love to see the last chapter animated so we could get a better look at the twins and maybe some flashbacks of when they made friends with Kouta's daughter and when they took her to see Lucy's dog's grave.

Is it true that Rin Okamoto (the manga-ka for Elfen Lied) himself has a cameo appearance in episode 12?

Would anyone care to point me out between which scenes, if it is true?

I now have a strong urge to read the manga. I read the spoilers (being spoiled never bothers me). And it sounds intrigueing. I loved the anime, and i liked the ending, but an alternate storyline (rather different from what I read) would be cool, too.

Are the Mangas translated to English yet? Can't read a bit of Japanese.

So far 52 of the 107 chapters have been translated. They usually get another chapter every week or two.

Diverging a little from the current topic... do anyone knows of a place that has an orgel/music box with the lilium tune that ships overseas.... if not, a place that merely has it in stock? Thanks

Before I post I'm sorry if what I'm gonna say has already been discussed, but there ain't no way I'm gonna read 65 pages and continue

I LOVE Elfen Lied. My favourite anime out there. Just bought the dubbed DVDs and must say am very pleased they kept all the original creepiness that the Japanese had.
Favourite character? Nana. I mean from the moment you meet her its pain pain pain pain yet she still loves her papa and shes such a happy child! Plus, having her arms and legs ripped off...niiiiice. Gonna cosplay as her hooopefully at the next London Expo ;D whoop!
But yush, music is so nice, perfect background to the killing and the tearing of limbs.
There arn't enough animes like this! (well ones I've watched anyways ^^) <3 love it!

I'm just bumping this to say that words can't describe how awesome Elfen Lied is. I'm stunned.

That is one of the nice things in the Manga ending.
