Well, the first episode was already very gory so how much more gory can it get in episode 4?

you wouldn't believe ^^"
Episode 1 compared to 4 is like the constrast between narutaru episode 1 and narutaru episode 8. Just get ready to watch someone's limbs being ripped off in fluid animation.

I collected some stuff concerning Elfenlied and put them up on a site, maybe you're interested:

http://killerattacks.de/elfenlied/

Some of it has already been posted in this thread and some stuff was created by me.

I can't wait to see ep 5

Ufff! Half of episode four was a gunshot!


Fight between Lucy and Nana was a bit breathtaking.

Lucy gets to talk a lot in this episode, in contrast to the previous ones, and she shows off her twistedness and bitchiness to the nth power with no remorse and inhibitions at all.
Spoiler:


In fact, Nana did put a good fight.
Spoiler:


It is showcased then that not all Dicloni are heartless or inhuman.
For examples, Nyu (obvious)
Nana
Spoiler:


But that moment also raised another doubt on me.
Spoiler:


What came next was the torture session.
Spoiler:


Just before the coup d' grace....
Spoiler:


I really loved the way how Lucy reacted and shouting, "Kizama", at Nana.

But the best was what the megane man delivered her.
Spoiler:



Furthermore, toward the end of this episode another three new characters are introduced: the boss of the glasses man, the glasses man if I recall correctly is Kurama; the son of his boss, sickly obssessed with Lucy; and his assistant.

Above all, this was the best Lucy episode I've seen as so far the series has come. Beginning from this episode, the web of conspiracy starts to weave. Do you think that this anime is heading toward an apocalyptic direction in both its theme and mood?

Interesting show, is it me or do those "horns" looks suprising like "neko ears".

I thought that's what they were at the beginning until they showed the x-ray and all.

A quick question, is the OST out yet? If not does anyone happen to have the intro? It's a pretty eery and I like it alot.

Can't wait to pick this one up on DVD, it's a nice departure from all the happy giddy shows that's currently the mainstream. Although I don't think I'll be able to show it to any anime newbies as it's not really fitting as a gateway series.

A question that keeps bugging me.

What would happen if a diclonus' horns (ears) were broken or tear apart?
Hypothetically implying that a Diclonus somehow manages to live.

I'm pretty sure it would die, since they are built into the skull and all. That would kind of leave open access to the brain, which...I don't think is a god thing.

Spoiler:
Yeah I tought that part is kinda cruel,
Spoiler for ep 4:


Sometimes I think the premise of this show is how bad our society has gone. And what Lucy doing is right or wrong? Because watching this show from time to time a tought will come out, maybe this person deserve to die.

Just like in Konomini, does humanity deserve a 2nd chance?

Edit:
Spoiler for ep 5:

Talking we shouldn't have a second chance

This show really brings out human's ugly nature: deceit, betrayal, abuse, etc.

I am particularly impressed at Lucy's stoic impression when she was tearing the limbs off Nana. This is the expression of a demented invidividual. Only the pure psychos show no emotion doing this stuff. (Applause) In fact, that should be done more often!

I thought the manga was actually more explicit in displaying Mayu's "acts", but hey, they can only show that much on regular TV .

You see, if you believe life is just a series of tragedies, this show just brings it out at its finest. (More applause) I am curious as to how much darker it can get. Can't wait for more!

The premise of this show is nudity+gruesome violence+catgirl to appeal to a wider audience, which sucks, but I suppose anime production companies cant take chances, anime cost money after all.

So far Im not impressed, I consider useless violence fanservice, and in this case its just there to appeal sicks and kids who goes "thats so cool" to pass as bad guys same with the nudity, which I dont mind as much as the ugly,disgusting, hideous "horns" a.k.a. catgirl ears >_<!!! that freaks me out, its so sick and disgusting and is far far away from being cute and...aarggh, I just hate it ^^

k now that I let that out of my system I have to say that the premise of the show is good, not terribly original though (not just konomimi, the "society is cruel" is a theme thats way overused, specially in anime) I love the opening and the ending and it can be a great series but I have my reservations, for me it seems it will end up as the usual fanservice anime... I hope not.

Im still waiting for ep 3 and of course the now-more-than-infamous ep 4! ^_^ if it doesnt get any better Ill drop it.
