    Lots of people, at least ten per episode I think. Probably more.

    Beheading, bloodletting, dismemberment, slaughter, torture, child molesting, animal brutality, full nudity, and even gimp masks. This series truly has something for everyone!

    Elfen Lied is reminiscent of 3x3 Eyes. The main character has an innocent, helpless side and a powerful, vicious dark side. Lots of blood in both, but Elfen Lied has much more shock factor to the violence. Due to the better detail. Honestly, I found much of the content disturbing. It gave me a semi-sick feeling that I haven't had since I watched the End of Evangelion.

    I think "What The FUCK?" or "JESUS" sums this series up best.

    it is my favorite anime, and not because of the nudity and violence. It has a very deep emotional story that really effected me, i almost cried once or twice during it.

    I'm still debating whether this series was done with some merit or as an excercise to see how much sick shit they can cram into 14 episodes.

    :squint: all of them :wtc: the scene where they were killing the dog was extremely sad. lucy lost all that was important to her, the only thing that relied on her and cared about her. It gave her a bad image of the world around her and she considered that to be the nature of humans. and the girl that snitched about the dog, further proved her inabilty to trust people. When i think about this anime sure the graphic scenes are cool and all but they arent that important to me when it comes to the story.

    i meant, i dunno i didn't think it was that shocking. The blood n guts fit well, wherever they put it. I was actually kinda startled when you know-wat happened in kakuzawa Yu's office even though there was an ellipsis in the middle of the subtitle. hahaha.

    I know what you mean. The story could have benefitted from more episodes.

    It was good, animation could have been better at times, though

    also I thought the show was pronounced Elfen "Leed"? Doesn't rhyme with died too well :o

    I don't think there's an other anime out there that captures what Elfen Lied had. It was dark and emotionally deep. I really wish there was a second season

    I have only watched the first episode of that dual audio version, its been sitting on my computer forever. I watched the first episode on my widescreen tv with surround sound... :bowdown: that was freaky but awesome.
    i have seen the original fansub probably 4 times.

    Yeah, it's a pretty violent series. This and Gantz rank as some of the bloodiest Anime I've seen. For a long time, Lucy was my favourite female character. After I saw the entire series, I went back to the first episode to watch what first surprised me. Pretty crazy stuff lol.
