Plot synopsis: The Story begins with a Diclonius named Lucy who is a mutated homo sapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind. She manages to break free from her inprison from mankind after brutally killing most of the guards in the laboratory then later getting shot in the head as she makes her escape. She survives and is found along the beach by two Adults named Kouta and Yuka. Having lost her memories, she was newly named after the only thing that she speaks "Nyuu," Kouta and Yuka allow her to stay at Kouta's home But it turns out that her true side Lucy is still very alive.
Story (7/10) Similar to a Slice of life setting in human style it has a lot of dangerous and very mistreated characters wanting to live a normal life but feeling inraged with normal human fear and actions which leads to a mad driven road for them. For the Diclonius having to possess telekinetic powers it causes a grave amount of pain to themselves and those around even when living with the ones who care and love them.
Characters (5/10) I want to have this rather short how much I dispise Kouta's character and role with Nyuu. Having to loose his famliy at a young age he misses his younger sister dearly having a shell she caught at the same beach nyuu has been found to remember her by. Nyuu herself breaks it half driving him in understandable rage at her making her run away shortly bringing her back as she makes herself look at his younger sister. He has a even deeper history with Lucy nyuu's real Diclonius side. Later falling in love with them both he jumps into save them from whatever danger they both face no matter how many times people expain to him that she's a Diclonius and killer.
Art/animation (9/10) High art quality and excellence is shown when you watch the background animation. Blood is greatly shown in nearly every episode while the nudity are respective to female and male body parts not over doing it but sometimes showing it at uneeded times. (An amount of Fanservice in a way) The Symbolistic artwork influenced shown for it's opening is known for having a mix of European painting and japanese Ukiyo-e.
Voice acting, music (8/10) Opening theme very unsually has a beautiful German melody and lyrics shown with it playing in every episode. While the ending theme has a very cute J-pop melody and sound telling about hidden love for someone else close to them. I love how Sanae Kobayashi did her role for Lucy knowing to have a sadist emotional sound while doing her character over as she puts a very notable childish sound for her counter part Nyuu.
Overall (10/10) Heed the Age limit for this series! If you cannot handle a huge deal of blood and nudity you don't want to watch the show. With a epict amount of child sexual abuse and animal abusment and parts of incest cousin and cousin relationship it might turn you the wrong way. Socially I felt for the characters and the true meanings rather then getting disgusted or overly shocked with the behavior involvment that happens in very graphic and tear dropping parts. Like neon Genesis Evangelion I deeply praise this series for it's social realism and other culture creativity.
