  • Elfen Lied - Not the worst anime I ever seen, but it's dangerously close.

    Sep 12, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Production values, traces of serious potential
    Cons: Terrible plot, shonen characters and cliches galore, contradicting messages, You call that a love triangle?!

    Summary: A naked girl who was bound in shackles begins her breakout of a facility. During her escape, many people who are mainly made up of armed guards are viciously slaughtered. When the girl makes it out of the place, she's heavily grazed across the head by ... read more

    Pros: the violence and nudity mostly have purpose, sympathetic characters
    Cons: not for the faint of heart, genres clash

    Summary: Ask anyone to recommend a great anime to you. Chances are the name Elfen Lied is going to pop up more that once. Despite this, I put off watching it for a long time, believing that it had to be overrated, and not really looking forward to the ... read more

    Pros: A lot of effort was put in the artwork.
    Cons: Story and character development was deplorable, genres clashed badly, everything went wrong.

    Summary: As we get older, we should mature mentally and attain more knowledge.  It's been about four years since I made any serious revisions to my review of the worst thing ever stamped on to film, Elfen Lied, and even a review with this much airtight logic ... read more

    Pros: Great story with good music, complex characters, and lots of action and drama.
    Cons: Younger audiences should not watch due to violence and nudity.

    Pros: -never a dull moment -excellent story and plot -good soundtrack -good animation -relatively cheap
    Cons: -Definitely not for the faint-hearted.

    Summary: I'm a great fan of Japanese animation (anime) and some of my favorites were Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Ah! My Goddess, Initial D, Ao Yori Aoshi, etc. When I watched these they all had that similar feel to them. However, Elfen Lied was a whole ... read more

    Pros: Nice opening theme and artwork. The animation is pretty nice too.
    Cons: Rushed, bits are changed and or cutout.
    Story does not flow well.
     

    Summary: I'm going to write this so that there aren't any hints of spoilers in the story. Where can I start? I read the manga since I had some free time, and a yearning to read a new manga. It impressed me- the story line, characters etc. So much so that I ... read more
