Odds are, if you're considering this product, you've already seen Elfen Lied. If you already own the old DVD sets, or you aren't that huge a fan of the series, then maybe the bumb to BR quality isn't worth your money. However if you enjoy the series, and you haven't already purchased a box set, I encourage you to buy this one. In today's age of torrenting and streaming, it's more important than ever to support the shows you enjoy. Especially in America, where anime isn't as popular as it is in Japan. We all had the ache of waiting for new Hellsing dubs after Geneon went out of business, and Darkhorse stopped printing the old Berserk volumes because not enough people buy them. Can it really be that brilliant, artistic shows like these and Elfen Lied struggle for support while shows like Naruto and One Piece make millions of dollars on the DVDs alone?
On the other hand, if you haven't seen Elfen Lied, then I cannot recommend it enough. Before Gasai Yuno came around, Lucy was the original pink-haired, split personality psychopath. This series is violent, beautiful, emotional, and bloody as all Hell. Due to its dark nature, Elfen Lied is not for the feint of heart. However, if you like dark, gorey, thrilling, and psychological stories, then this is the anime for you!
This series reminded me a lot of the Tenchi Muyo series where there just happens to be one boy that all these women seem to be gravitating to, although in this series there is just happens to be a bit more nudity and a lot more blood.
With that being said, I found the underlying story itself very endearing of how this outcast who was subjected to brutal teasing just for being different by her peers was pushed to the edge and when she finally found someone who didn't see her as "different" but "cool" she ended up destroying their friendship by her own jealous nature.
In short, this was an entertaining tale and worth watching, the ending though leaves you wanting more, which is really my only problem with the series. It just seems like it was unfinished.
