I didn't see it as fanservice. Fanservice is usually blatant nudity or sexuality for no reason or a stupid reason. Elfen Lied was not like that.

I only had to see this post for the song to come flooding back to me (and it was beautiful!).

I'm not sure I liked Elfen Lied, but I certainly didn't hate it. Will never forget it, though.

I'd say it was more transgressive than anything. It was pretty blatantly trying to step outside of moral boundaries, but not really for titillation or entertainment.

I wouldn't say I "enjoyed" the series, though it's pretty unique in the medium of anime, and I felt it did have some artistic merit. Still left me feeling icky after I watched it, though.

An old favorite. I remember it vividly and intimately.

Everyone remembers Elfen Lied. The funny thing is that it's such a terrible show but I still enjoyed the heck out of it. Definitely one of my guilty pleasure shows.

Are you talking about the end theme "Be Your Girl"? I still think of that song from time ti time. I remember the anime as having perhaps the bloodiest first five minutes of any anime I can think of. Plus the show got a bit disturbing. Not to mention a rather ambiguous last scene, although I did read the manga went on a bit longer than the anime.

Ya it was a pretty fucked up show, but I loved it. You don't get enough animes these days that are as brutal and unforgiving as that. I've been meaning to read the manga since the anime condensed the story a lot (the anime was still great though).

I have been wondering for a while now, but does anyone remember the crazy show called Elfen Lied?? It's been forever since I have seen that show, and I was just watching it on youtube, but I was wondering if anyone else remembered that show as well???

It was a really messed up show as well though.


I've heard good things about the manga and anime.

More about manga than the anime, though

No actually, Lilium. The OP. Kinda unusual for an anime to have an OP like that.
