I just watched the first half of the first episode of Elfen Lied. Now I am no man of weak constitution, I've seen real live autopsies performed, list goes on, but this was a bit over the top (girl decapitated, guards chopped in half, blood ad nauseaum) even for me. Does this shit continue or does it kind of tame out a bit?
The whole naked thing didn't bother me, but the whole "killer psychic FBI lolis on steroids" was enough to make me think this was just some forced, over the top deal. Is this series any good? I'm willing to give it another shot, but seriously, am I going to want to gouge my eyes out if I watch it? Is it existential or thoughtful in the least? Discuss.
Made of blood and moe.
I once saw open heart surgery on a vhs at my school as part of a biology class. I had to go to the hospital after because I couldnt stop vomiting. For 2 hours.
You're okay with autopsies but not cartoon violence.
This has GOT to be an ACTUAL COPYPASTA from an ACTUAL TROLL. Definitely.
Everything is what you make of it, thus everything is existential.
I can safely say I did make these words up. I was sincerely interested.
Well, at least at autopsies victims don't scream anymore. Usually.
some kid did that in my school too, he was the class retard.
OP here. To be fair, it was a veterinary autopsy, so I suppose don't believe anything you hear on the internet is a fair rule.
Wow, everyone take a screencap, we are seeing copypasta before it's copypasta.
go to high school in oregon by chance?
>killer psychic FBI lolis on steroids
where was there a loli in the first episode?
Its a decent show, don't try and look for any deep meaning, you wont find it.
I think he's reffering to the fact that Lucy was naked for the first 11 minutes of the show.
It's not that bad
It does die down a bit. The first episode seems to exist purely to grab your attention, and show how dangerous Lucy can be. Uber-gore episodes do happen every now and again as the series progresses, though.
Also, watch the second half of the first episode, and you will see that lucy is a moeblob half the time, and all is cute and funny and ecchi- except when it is very very not cute, funny, or ecchi.
The OP for this show is one of the best I've ever seen.
about the end 'be your girl'
i thought it was sung by Chieko Kawabe, but there's anonymous saying it was also sung by avril

this explains why they were able to draw tits better than the usual fanservice anime.
There are two types of people when it comes to Elfen Lied. Those who didn't make it through the first 7 minutes. And those who kept watching and found out that it was a really good series.
Yes, it does tame out. Yes, there is still violence throughout the series, but its not constant. It is plenty existential and thoughtful. Watch it all the way through, don't pussy out just because of the opening shock scenes.
you forget people who watched the entire show and still thought it was shit
very very good series, i just got done with it, watch it ull be glad u did
