Probably one of the most brutal animes I've seen, both emotionally and physically.
Ranks high on my list.

Yes Elfen Lied was very brutal mentally, left quite a impact on me, which could be only described in one way, "Short and Sweet"

Wow so just finally decided to watch through this series. Have to say it's a pretty powerful thing to watch all at once.

They didn't hold back at all and there were a lot of times I was worried about characters surviving this. Lot of blood being spilt and it was something how easily people could die. One moment they are standing there even talking and the next they are in pieces on the ground...But I enjoyed the series since it was just an excellent show.

In terms of characters I really liked Nana would probably be near the top. Like a good amount of the characters she suffered pretty badly in that facility and with the testing. Really thought she might die when she was up against Lucy and seeing her lose those limbs...But she was a good person that didn't like killing. Could only feel bad at her losing her 'papa' at the end, a burden of being one that survived. But likable girl that I'm glad she learned about money. (Burning money...that's sad). Course there were quite a few characters I liked here just thought I'd bring a comment out on this.

Funny how you mention how sad it is to burn money, when the entire anime is pretty much one big cry-fest with one terrible tragedy after another. ^^
I too, liked Nana, although I think her personality is hard to judge, since she's the result of living secluded her entire life, having little to no social interaction at all. I'm surprised she was so kind, though, so that really won me over, although that kindness is most likely a result of her extreme naivety. The loss of her "father" was surely a burden, but unfortunately there was no post-ending summary, so it's hard to tell how it affected her.

I'm clinging to my perfect little fantasy, Nana, Kohta, even Lucy/Nyu and the rest of the bunch living happily ever after in that beach house. (Don't break my bubble)

Hey I'm not one to break the bubble . Suppose I brought up the money thing just because it's one of those 'sad' things that isn't quite so depressing as the rest of the series. Thank god though she was stopped before it was all gone. Maybe the Director should've added a small thing about what paper money is.

Anything is possible after all. We can fall onto the anime law of if I don't see a body... That shadow at the end certainly makes it tempting for me to believe that Lucy managed to survive somehow. While I wouldn't be capable of predicting how things would continue. With that organization still continuing it's path and such, but at least there would be positive possibilities.

In terms of Nana's personality I'd agree partially it has to do with living in such a secluded place. But some girls that came into that facility clearly weren't so restrained in killing as Nana was. Maybe it was the constant affection from her 'papa' that helped, but since it wasn't like she would just go kill because he asked she just wanted to stop Lucy and take her home. Could be an innate quality of kindess within her. Losing her papa would hurt and probably be devastating. But I think in her mind she has to survive for those that didn't and she has support to help her. With Kouta, Yuka, and Mayu they'd help her handle this loss.

Ending

I've just finished watching the anime, but it entirely did not conclude what would happen next. There are still lots of questions to be answered. I've found out that there are major differences between the manga and anime. How does the manga end? What happens? Can anyone give me a brief summary of the ending conclusion?

Spoiler for manga spoilers, and stuff:


This is from the top of my head, there's a bunch of stuff I missed, since I haven't read it all, and there might even be some stuff that's just plain wrong, so take it with a grain of salt.

I can't confirm this, but I read somewhere that the manga states that diclonius' killing instinct/power comes from their horns, which sort of fortifies the idea of Nyuu surviving and returning to live a normal life (in the anime), of course, it also means she'd lose her focus in the last battle, since she lost it straight away, but I'm staying optimistic!

(That's right I'm back. Sorry been away for a while).

Nah I think... well it's confusing. I think she doesn't kill because Kurama told her not to. She says that to... what's his face? The guy who tried to kill her on the beach. But she also DOES say, she doesn't want to kill anyone who's a threat to her.

It seems that she doesn't hear the voice telling her to kill (probably coming from Lucy) like all the other vector virus diclonius so it is easier for her.

So true, surprised how they can mix a whole variety of genres into what was ultimately a violent gory series.

I do not think the voice comes from lucy since she fought the thing too in the manga especially that voice is something unnatural

Can anyone explain, why Kurama's daughter was a diclonius(I'm watching the 10th ep. now)? Did they intentionally infect her during her prenatal period, or the virus itself is simply highly contageous.

I thought that it was just somekind of scientific experiment to modify the DNA to create a perfect weapon for military purposes. And like in modern science they just use viruses to inject the given nucleotide chain into particular places of the DNA. So the virus use was controlled and each contagion was intentional.

However, as Kurama was really astounded by horns of his little daughter, it could be that it's some kind of an air- or water- or blood- transmitted desease. But in that case it could be epidemic. Or may be it could be transmitted only by direct contact (immediate contagion), but then Kohta and Yuka are already contaminated...

And may be they just involved Kurama's wife in the experiment without his consent?

May be i just missed something.
Any ideas?

If you notice, during that ep where one of the diclonius broke out, she said thank you or something and used her vector to pass through Kurama's head, the diclonius virus is transmitted through the vectors as it passes through someone. So basically he was infected by that escaped Diclonius.
