    I not only hate it, I hate it with a burning passion.
    You know you're right. Although I can say with a straight face that I liked watching Elfen Lied. The only thing that really bothers me is the fact that it's over-violent. I mean, she killed a bunch of kids and their blood was all over the room, the yellow wall became red. It's too violent for it's sake. It could have been better if they reduced it.

    Truth is a thing which only appears to those who have observed, considered, and made a choice. At the end of the path you chose lies the truth...Believe in it and continue without faltering.

    If my post actually showed up, it probably would have summed up what you just said.Curses, lag! D:
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    Although Elfen Lied is a bit gorey, it is filled with philosopy. For example, the capacity for good or evil demonstrated by Lucy/Nyuu, and that we humans fear that which is different. Hell, it's my second favorite anime. Although I do agree the creators could have toned down the gore. I did not need to see a head torn off every few episodes.
    I now know what hell sounds like; I recommend a tactical nuclear strike on my position. Tell my family I love them.

    Yeah, indeed Xero XIII made a point. But I'll say it again, I liked Elfen Lied, it's just that the fact that she doesn't hesitate to kill, kinda annoys me.

    I watched it a while back when I was 17.

    I suppose they put lots of gore and other scenes similar to that because it was a short series, with just 13 episodes. Or maybe that is the reason why it seemed to have so much Gore. Maybe if they decided to make it a 24/26 episode long series it might have seemed like less violence because it would have spread out through many more episodes.

    Still though, I loved everything about it! Including the Gore!! >=]

    What?! Thats insane! I mean really. 13 years old? okay, thats good but if you let a six year old kid watch this, I don't know what kind of influence it would bring to that kid. You gotta be at least a teenager to watch this anime, it ain't for kids!
