Editorial Reviews

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.

This is one of best stories I have ever seen. There are so many fine details that the storywriter and director actually paid attention to that makes this series so wonderful, so sublime. The story is the star, but the details make this story shine like a polished diamond. The music, the artwork, the character development, the roller coaster ride of violence and tenderness - all are carefully thought out and shown with care. This is no anime for the faint of heart. There are scenes that are simply so horrifying and gut wrenching that it may leave an indelible impression that you can't get rid of. This is true of both the violence of the "monsters", as well as the evil in the hearts of men. At times in the story, you will understand the violence, even expect it- maybe even want it. However, be prepared for what happens to the "innocents" and the innocence. Like I said, this is not for the faint of heart.

Been waiting on Elfen Lied on Blu Ray forever. At just two dollars more than the DVD set, this is a bargain. The BR quality is a noticeable improvement over the DVD. Some anime just take to high definition, and Elfen Lied is one of them. Something about seeing that blood, bone, and brain matter splatter across the screen in 1080p just brings a warm fuzzy feeling to my heart.

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!

I had heard so many things about Elfen Lied. Mostly how it was so violent, brutal and horrific. I finally watched it and I'm kinda blown away. I'm left with a mixture of feelings. So many brutal moments, so many sad moments, so many nice moments. And the ending is also a mix of happy and tragic. I guess what I'm so impressed with is how everything fits together in this story. Its actually a pretty complex story for only 13 episodes. But as the series goes on, everything comes together and fits together like pieces of a puzzle. It seems like it was a really well thought out story! Different events happen during the course of the show, which may seem unrelated, but in the end you see how everything is interconnected. The 1-star review trashed this show and said it was a combination of every cliche in anime. Well, I cannot speak to its 100% originality or any ground-breaking new concepts, as I am not that experienced or vexed of an anime viewer. All I can tell you is that in my opinion, this is an amazing show. If you dont feel touched emotionally at some point while watching, then something has got to be wrong with you. There are horrendous and heart-wrenching parts, but there are also heartfelt scenes about loving, caring, values of family and friedship. If themes like this have become too cliche for you then you might as well pass on Elfen Lied, as you have probably watched too much anime for your own good anyway. I think its amazing how they managed to combine so many different aspects together in 1 show, and it does NOT seem forced in my opinion. I was afraid this show was going to be too dark and depressing. But there is enough happiness to balance out the dark, and somehow through all the horror it manages to have a satisfying ending. Highly Recommended.

My niece (age 13) and a lot of other random anime fans that I know, would go on and on about how they loved this particular anime, so I thought I would watch it to see what in the world they were talking about.

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.
