Elfen Lied

Directed By: Mamoru Kanbe
Original Story and Manga Written By: Lynn Okamoto
Length: 13 episodes

(8.5/10)Elfen Lied was a definitely one of my all time favorite animes. I loved the characters and the story was pretty amazing too. There is the factor of some nudity at parts throughout the show though, but I still think that it really was worth watching. It's basically about these humans (girls) born with a disease that gives them an extraordinary power. This disease causes them to kill everyone, even their own parents. These so called humans aren't really humans anymore and most of them are killed when they are born because people believe them to be the enemy of the human race.
This story is mainly about one "diclonius" (the name given to those with the disease) named Lucy. This story shows the back stories, so the viewer can see why things turned out the way it did. I'd give this show about an 8.5 out of 10. I definitely recommend this, but due to the nudity, I insist that you contemplate if you really should watch it before you do. One other issue is that there is a pretty good amount of blood. Make sure to think about this before you watch it! Be careful!(8.5/10)
