Pretty late to the party but just finished Elfen Lied and I like it, haven't had feels in a while. What did /a/ think and are there anymore with feels like this?
EL is shit. They wasted a good manga, serializing it in an unironic way.
The only thing it made me feel was hate. Except for Nana and the cyborg.
>What did /a/
Best anime ever made
>are there anymore with feels like this?
Boku no Pico
Elfen Lied is something that everyone can agree is total, nigh unredeemable, shit.
Kouta was a shit character and got way too much attention but Kurama more then made up for that in his arc
I think... maybe you're in high school?
No offense. I watched Elfen Lied in high school and thought it was fucking great. But I rewatched it again ten years later, and it's just unbearable. Edginess aside, it's just not good.
But that's ok. It's not your fault you have bad taste. You just don't know.
Try watching Neon Genesis Evangelion and Madoka Magica if you want edgy stuff with feels. Not only are they fucking great, they're classics that will give you a basic anime education.
Indeed. Nana getting good end is priceless. Also, I can't get rid of the impression that manga was supposed to be a parody. At least it got a fair share of comedy gold moments right in the middle of drama.

Just graduated High school but i casually watch anime
Samurai Champloo that should give an idea on how deep I'm in
> failing to understand human communication on all levels
> not liking the most influential anime of its decade
Those are all good shows, and pretty well known ones too. Evangelion is a much watch--there are multiple threads about it on here every day for a reason. Watch it now before you get too deep in that you can't forgive the budget troubles it ran into late in the season. If you liked Elfen Lied you will love NGE.
Madoka actually just came out a few years ago (2011) and people are already saying it will be anime of the decade. You'll think it's weird at first, and wonder why the fuck everyone is into this, but just stick with it... I don't want to spoil anything, but it's winning anime of this decade for a reason.
Much obliged anon, will do.
There was actually an anime of the decade thread earlier... don't know if that's where you're getting it from, but the last four decades were Mobile Suit Gundam > Evangelion > Haruhi > Madoka if I remember correctly. I think pretty much everyone can agree on most of that list though. Not as sure about Haruhi, but S1 and the movie are "must watch" status at the very least.
2011 was a based year--we got Madoka AND Steins;Gate.
Don't forget Fate/Zero, and there's gotta be a few others I'm forgetting about, 2011 was a fantastic year.
In that improbable case that you're writing unironically, I must note that Madoka isn't even the best anime of its year, save decade.
don't read the manga, unless you want to see an abortion
Listen man I know High School Girls! ~Idol Band~ also came out that year and that's what you're into, but the rest of us were watching Madoka, S;G and F/Z and thinking anime was saved.
But I enjoyed idolm@ster and all of those. Can't you enjoy all anime? Also the whole "anime saved" shit is getting old. Anime is doing great right now and doesn't need to be saved.
Amazing intro music wasted on shit anime.
Elfen Lied was pretty shitty honestly. As much as I hate the word, it's the only show I've watched where 'edgy' describes the whole experience. Halfway through the show ended up being violent for violent's sake yet they tried to make it so moralistic. Good for some cheap tears and emotions but if you want a more substantial melodrama watch Now and Then, Here and There.
Also Nana best girl.
What kind of fucking kids kill a puppy?
>i casually watch anime
/a/, I am disappoint
You forgot Mawaru Penguindrum and Nichijou. Also, samefagging for the sake of providing newfags with erroneous information is noble, but you gotta know when to stop
Come back to our board, OP
Elfen Lied is SHIT
Not trying to be, just telling it like it is.
Even the manga looks awful from the art alone.
It was shit and still is
>Even the manga looks awful from the art alone.
To be fair, the art got better on the second arc. Of course, that's only because the mangaka, to put in a common phrase, got his shit together and the plot stop being a terrible blender of harem and gore
>Elfen Lied recommendation thread
>people replying seriously
We're past the point of no return now, aren't we?
Oh netflix, quit being a fag and watch berserk.
I laughed so hard I had to pause it when this happened. I thought for a while it was going to be a comedy then the dog killing scene happened. That show was all over the place.
Thread should have ended here.
Wouldn't use that word around here OP
Also try these they should be to your taste
Elfen Lied has some awesome OST though.
