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!!

Watched the first episode of Elfen Lied and the the beginning of it made it seem like a very dark and adult creation, that certainly appealed to me. Don't mind blood, nor tasteful nudity - you know, nudity that isn't fanservice. Which I felt it wasn't at first. But then when Nyu (is that her name?) lost her mask and it turns out she's a chibi kiwi little girl with bunny ears... well, that took away a huge chunk of the potential that I initially saw in the show. And it made the nudity feel a bit uncomfortable. So I didn't watch past episode 1. I guess I should give it a proper chance, though, before I dismiss it. I have heard good things about it. Don't judge the book by the cover, as they say. Things can be dark and adult despite a misleading appearance.
