Elfen Lied (エルフェンリート Erufen Rīto?)was directed by Mamoru Kanbe, animated by ARMS and produced by GENCO and VAP. Elfen Lied first aired on TV Tokyo's AT-X satellite channel from July 25 to October 17, 2004 and was broadcast again in 2005. (Source - Wiki)
Plot Summary: The Diclonius, a mutated homo sapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind, possesses two horns in their heads, and has a "sixth sense" which gives it telekinetic abilities. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, a young and psychotic Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murder most of the guards in the laboratory, only to get shot in the head as she makes her escape. She survives and manages to drift along to a beach, where two teenagers named Kouta and Yuka discovers her. Having lost her memories, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, "Nyuu," and the two allow her to stay at Kouta's home. However, it appears that the evil "Lucy" is not dead just yet...

Hey all just thought I'd ask if anyone else has seen the masterpiece that it Elfen Lied? If not I highly recomend...although not if your weak of stomach, its more an adult anime. Somewhere between Full-metal Alchemist and Ninjascroll. Its about some girl who has a new genetic structure which gives her a 6th sense (have to watch to see what it is) basicly some scientists locked her up anmd experiment till she grusomely escaped, slaughtered everyone. Anyway to cut long story short she is shot, gets amnesia (kinda) and washes up on shore where two teenagers find her. Again a warning this not not a show for kiddies but if your like me and love all the FMA, Ninjascroll and Hellsings out there then its a must...currently it is up to episode 8.
If you interested just look it up and watch the 1st few episodes, you wont regret it!!

the first episode made a bad impression on me... at first, the intro was cool... the bloodshed kick ass! then, after those teeners met her and she started acting like a dolt w/ amnesia saying "nyu" every other time... i got turned off... it was like chobits all over again.

if it's remotely like Chobits then 'NO', I didn't really enjoy Chobits, it was among average, the only thing GOOD was the ending, but that's it, and I'd try out Elfen Lied, but it's only on ep 8, I'd rather not, I wanna wait til the series is finished or close to the end

(Bringing this back, since it's almost over) I've been watching since ep 1 and ep 13 (final) is airing this weekend. A single group kept subbing after it was picked up (by ADV, if I remember correctly). Let me start of by saying that Elfen Lied is more bloody than any other series I've watched so far. The story doesn't revolve around blood and limbs flying off here, however, it's actually quite strong. I do have to apply the 'cute, yet utterly retarded' rule to Lucy's split personality though. It's a bit like Chobits in that (and only that) aspect.
