Lucy is a special breed of human referred to as "Diclonius," born with a short pair of horns and invisible telekinetic hands that lands her as a victim of inhumane scientific experimentation by the government. However, once circumstances present her an opportunity to escape, Lucy, corrupted by the confinement and torture, unleashes a torrent of bloodshed as she escapes her captors. During her breakout, she receives a crippling head injury that leaves her with a split personality: someone with the mentality of a harmless child possessing limited speech capacity. In this state of instability, she stumbles upon two college students, Kouta and his cousin Yuka, who unknowingly take an injured fugitive into their care, unaware of her murderous tendencies. This act of kindness will change their lives, as they soon find themselves dragged into the shadowy world of government secrecy and conspiracy. Jul 1, PM by Sakana-san Discuss 2 comments.
Elfen Lied Anime Series
The Elfen Lied anime series ran for a course of 13 episodes , also featuring one OVA taking place between Episodes 10 and Like many anime series, it makes extensive use of music to set its tone. Its original creator was Lynn Okamoto , while the primary director for the anime was Mamoru Kanbe. The animation is considered top-notch, with favorable notice being given to the opening and closing credits, animated by Rin Shin for the ARMS Corporation. These credits used as their template the haunting paintings of Gustav Klimt as well as the memorable Lilium sung by Kumiko Noma in the opening credits, and played as an instrumental by Kouta's music box. The anime's use of gore and violence is even more explicit than in the manga , and the first ten minutes of the first episode are often called the most violent in all of mainstream anime. While there are few or no anime-only characters, some characters who appear in the manga, like Nozomi , never appear in the anime, while others, like Isobe , have their characters simplified, or, as in the case of Aiko Takada have their back-stories trimmed considerably.
The Unfinished Plot
Nana almost falls into the ocean, but Kurama arrives to save her. Kurama tells Nana that he must kill Mariko and they go search for her. Still in her fever dream, Lucy remembers more of her past. By chance she met Kohta, the first human being to treat her with compassion and truly be her friend.
Elfen Lied revolves around the interactions, views, emotions, and differences between human beings and the Diclonii, a mutant species similar to humans in build but distinguishable by two horns on their heads and "vectors", transparent telekinetically controlled arms that have the power to manipulate and cut objects within their reach. The series is centered on the teenage Diclonius girl "Lucy" who was rejected by human beings and subsequently wants revenge. The series' title is German as well as Dutch for "Elves' Song" or more formally "song of the elves'" and takes its name from the song " Elfenlied ", which is featured in the story.
