Product Description

Product Description

Critics have described Elfen Lied as "weird," (Anime Planet), "surprisingly sadistic," (Gamers Edge), and "addictive"(Animesou). No wonder, when you consider what makes this series hum! Lucy, a beautiful young mutant, is bred by the military to be the ultimate weapon. Now, with government killers on her trail, the disposition of a five year old, and a hair trigger for ultraviolence, Lucy and her young friends must unravel the dark secret of her legacy before it's too late.

I absolutley LOVED the Elfen Lied series, it's really unique as far as curren anime goes. I would really reccomend it to anyone who likes psychological thrillers and/or horror anime. And I would give this particular item a 5, however the packaging the dvd's come in is terrible and all the discs come one one spindle, and was VERY barebones in everything except the actual anime. Considering what a success Elfen Lied was I'm sure ADV could've splurged and gave us a decent item, but they cheaped out :/ but yeah if you're not super anal like I and just want to view the series than this is it :D

Elfen Lied is a horror anime series where a diclonius (species name) named Lucy escapes from a maximum security containment asylum & now releasing her all out psychopathic murderous hunger for blood to a local populous. That would be the case if Lucy did not constantly keep switching personalities with Nyu, a more gentle & naive version of Lucy. The storyline begins with Lucy initially escaping the military asylum using very gruesome methods. After suffering a fatal head wound from a sniper rifle bullet Lucy switches personalities to Nyu where she befriends a teenage male & female. Unaware that Nyu is a psychopathic murderer, the teenage boy named Kohta along with his female cousin Yuka, take Nyu into their care. The storyline picks up momentum when the military asylum issues an execution warrant for Lucy (Nyu). Divided between an opportunity to live like a normal person with a family & an angry military battalion on the hunt for Lucy (Nyu) how will Nyu resist her Lucy personality from brutally mutilating the dead corpses of her fallen victims? The plot contains some dull moments but paces well with the storyline in conveying the bloody brutality of diclonius versus human. No signs of lethargic personality traits found within the anime series.
Dialogue is exceptionally well developed with interactions between characters emphasized greatly. Voice acting is also exceptional in portraying the characters personalities & thoughts. Since there is no censorship against the violence, blood & gore, nudity & sexuality, & weapons it provides a more authentic horror thriller experience for the viewer.
Anime recommended for the horror anime fan.
Thank you.

Elfen Leid, well to say the least, it is a very violent series. Based on a Manga of the same name the series covers about a quarter of the story and has a completely different ending. As with most Japanese animation series it is the small guy fighting against the Government sponsored large secretly funded corporation. In this case it is an ancient race the diclonius who were persecuted and nearly exterminated by humans. The diclonious have vectors (invisible arms) that extend two metres beyond their bodies and can pick up objects, slice through stone, stop bullets and objects, kill and can even penetrate flesh without injury .

The series revolves around Kohta and Lucy (Nyu) who are brought back together after several years. Kohta does not remember Lucy until well into the story due to trauma suffered in his childhood. Lucy has escaped from an island where she had been held for numerous years. The story is basically a love story (at times it's hard to believe) but there are several scenes that can bring you close to crying (at least for me). For Anime fans this is a must series.

A good series but not great. If you ignore the violence and nudity it's well worth watching.

Loved it, it has a good plot and lots of interesting side bits. Its one of the better anime I have seen. There is nudity but it is part of the plot not an excuse for random jiggling of breasts.

Let it be said that I love violent and/or depressing anime. I love Texhnolyze and Serial Experiments: Lain just as much as Ninja Scroll. However, when the targets of exploitative violence become puppies, infants, and prepubescent girls, I quickly start to grow weary.
I have been told by many people that the reason I find Elfen Lied to be distasteful is that I am either too sensitive to handle the gratuitous violence, gore, incest, and pedophilia, or too dense to realize that it is in fact a beautiful love story, based on forgiveness and redemption. While the former accusation is entirely subjective, I honestly fail to see how the story of a man who is in love with the woman who killed his family as a child can be perceived as "beautiful" by any means. Perhaps I really am just dense, but I believe that it functions better as an examination into the depravity of the human mind more than anything.
In fact, that is how I view the entire series: a look into the absolute worst aspects of humanity. Almost every single character who appears on screen is in one way or another psychopathic and/or incredibly depraved. Even the handful of characters who are not objectively "evil" are very disturbed in some form, ie. the woman who is in love with her cousin, the aforementioned man who loves his family's killer, the sexually abused street urchin, etc.
With all that being said, I do not actually regret watching Elfen Lied. I found it to be a very intriguing perspective on the darkest, most depraved reaches of the human mind, and it most certainly held my attention throughout its duration. However, I believe it takes a very particular type of person to legitimately enjoy watching something as dark as this.
