Dark Horse Licenses Elfen Lied Manga

First volume scheduled for May 22, 2019

Lynn Okamoto's Elfen Lied manga is officially making its way to North America next year. Dark Horse Comics announced plans to publish the 2002-2005 series at Anime Expo, with the first of four omnibus volumes scheduled for May 22, 2019.

 

Okamoto's series was adapted into a TV anime back in 2004. ADV released it on home video, and Sentai Filmworks released the complete collection back in 2013. Here's how they describe it: 

 

Critics have described Elfen Lied as "weird," (Anime Planet), "surprisingly sadistic," (Gamers Edge), and "addictive"(Animesou). No wonder, when you consider what makes this series hum! Lucy, a beautiful young mutant, is bred by the military to be the ultimate weapon. Now, with government killers on her trail, the disposition of a five year old, and a hair trigger for ultraviolence, Lucy and her young friends must unravel the dark secret of her legacy before it's too late.
