SynopsisThe Diclonius, a mutated homosapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind, possess two horns on their heads and have a "sixth sense" which gives them telekinetic abilities. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, a young and psychotic Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murders most of the guards in the laboratory where she is being held, only to be shot in the head as she makes her escape. She survives, falling off a cliff into the ocean and manages to drift along to a beach where two teenagers, Kouta and Yuka, discover her. Having lost her memories, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, "Nyuu," and the two allow her to stay at Kouta's home. However, it appears that the psychotic side of Lucy is not dead just yet...

Characters & Voice Actors
Elfen Lied: Infamous for its bloody mess of gore, cruelty and nudity. A combination that could make many a person turn away. Yet, a huge number of people watch this, knowing (to some extent) what they're going into, and it's one of the more popular and well-rated series here on MAL. Some people call it a 'masterpiece', people some call it 'perverted', some people don't know what to say, and some call it 'horrible'. The first is true, the second is an exaggeration, the third is understandable, and the fourth is so wrong.
The first episode starts off with what is the bloodiest and nuditiest 10 minutes of any show I've ever watched, and I'll tell you this: If you live through that, you'll live through the series. And vice versa. Lucy, a naked girl of the Diclonius race, a species of mutant humans with invisible 'arms' called Vectors, is escaping from a facility (more like assaulting her way out), killing countless guards and whatnot on her way out (all in the nude). When she's finally outside, she's sniped, but she doesn't die. Instead, two teenage cousins (the two other main characters), Kouta and Yuka, discovers her on a beach. She has lost her memories, and is only capable of saying "Nyu", which is what Kouta and Yuka names her. They also decide to take her home, and
The story suddenly drops severely in its gore level there, and slowly builds up again throughout the remaining twelve episodes. Along with the gore come cruel events upon cruel events, as more Diclonii and their sad pasts are revealed. Nyuu 'awakens' as Lucy more frequently as the story progresses, in the end completely reverting to her old self. However, there might be an obstacle preventing her from going completely psychotic...
The characters are all okay, though they do act really stupid at times (if you find a girl with horns lying drenched in blood on the beach, you don't just take her home and decide to keep here there, do you?). They've all got some back stories, which contents are mostly those of cruelty, blood and relationships. Especially note the latter; relationships. It's an important aspect of the series, as they are the main factor as to why the Diclonius are so "cruel" as they are. "Cruel" because they aren't the real cruel ones; that dubious honor goes to the humans. Treating the Diclonius as mere research subjects, being shunned by the very people who should take care of them, and being killed off for stupid reasons. Among the main characters, their love (there is a love triangle between Kouta, Yuka and Nyu/Lucy), broken promises, lies and "lies" have all had their effect on how they are in the present, and what happened some years ago is connected to their development in the present day.
The series is only 13 episodes long, and in that short time quite a lot happens, which may make it seem rushed at times; it does move forward at a too high pace. The end result however, is actually extremely good, and a really tragic, enjoyable and gory experience.
The artwork is extremely good, yet very average. While backgrounds and scenic details are very meticulous and a real pleasure to the eyes, the character designs are way below what you'd expect after seeing the backgrounds. There is too little detail on them, the coloring is too bland, and they don’t fit in with the detailed surroundings in any way. The camerawork is very good at times though; at the rare occasion it reminded me more of the camerawork used in anime movies rather than anime series. The artwork during the opening theme is pretty interesting too; I think it's based an Austrian painter (Gustav Klimt)'s works.
The soundtrack is decent, with a marvelous Latin opening theme named Lilium that fits right into the series' overall tone, and an ending theme that, while a bit more cheerful, fits in with the love triangle between the main characters. The background music during the series is very repetitive at first; just a bunch of instrumental variations of Lilium. It gets better a few episodes into the series though, but overall I feel they used the variations of Lilium too much.
All in all Elfen Lied is a anime that does a very audacious thing by having so much cruelty, gore and nudity in one series, but the end result is a masterpiece anime that wouldn't have been good without. Just remember that it doesn't have the R+ rating for no reason - events ranging from a man watching his naked daughter to a dog being bludgeoned to death with a vase and live dismemberment takes place.
To 'Not Helpful' voters (and you 'Helpful' voters too): Feedback greatly appreciated =)
An anime can be critically successful for many reasons, it could be due to a well written and engaging plot, innovative ideas that are perfectly handled or even have a deep plot revolving around thought provoking themes. More so, "depth" has been a cause for critical success of many anime over the course of time for example "The tatami Galaxy", but for a show to have a level of depth is not an easy task for any writer. However, superficial depth can be achieved easily and even more easily confused for genuine depth. Such superficial depth ranges from cheap shock factor to random philosophical questions which have no relations to the core plot or characters and Elfen Lied is a prime example of such superficial depth.
The harem genre has never been an interesting or innovative genre in terms of plot and character since the beginning of time. Most harem shows consist of a bland protagonist surrounded by fetish fulfilling bimbos, who are head over heels for the bland protagonist for the most stupid reasons. Pandering, useless fan service and sometimes being an insult to one's intellect; most harem shows lose all entertainment value to a mature audience. The mass production of such shows led to the belief that "anime" is only meant for kids and adolescent teens and have nothing of value to offer for someone more mature. However, this notion surprisingly changed after the release of the infamous, Elfen Lied an original story written by Okamoto Lynn which got a one cour anime adaptation, produced by studio ARMS who are also famous for producing other works like Ikkitousen, a ton of hentai titles and Genshiken.
At first glance Elfen Lied is anything but a harem. The show starts with 10 minutes of outright nudity and gore which leaves the viewer in a state of utter shock and terror. These 10 minutes were enough to drive away the weak hearted . However, after these ten minutes the story is just a hackneyed amalgamation of cliche, plot devices, plot conveniences, plot holes and last but not the least some "smart" and fetishy pandering wrapped up into a harem. Plot conveniences and cliche are in abundance for example Lucy, loses her memory (amnesia cliche) when shot with a bullet in the head with a magnum sniper and floats down to a beach. One would expect the military to be present there, anticipating her arrival on several shores as she is indeed a top secret project and above that a threat to the human race, but she conveniently meets up with her one and only friend she ever had, Kouta. The authour tries to handle pandering with different tricks such as using "horns" for cat ears(Kemenomimi). The whole amnesia cliche, is further used as a plot device and conveniently too which involves Lucy, regaining her memories and her other personality when ever the plot asks for it and reverting back to her childlike personality whenever the plot asks for it. As the story progresses the writer cleverly turns what could have been a genuinely mature story about racism and discrimination into a cunning little harem. Every female character introduced is forced upon with some miserable past. It almost seems like the writer is a misogynistic sadist who creates female characters just to torture them. One would expect the writer to use these angst filled backstories to weave up an emotional tale but fails at doing so as how forced these backstories come off and the overall lack of any development of the character doesn't help either. The story also tries to be dark but only fails as it's an edgy mess due to the abundant amount of unnecessary fan service and the whole over the top nature of the show.
Many claim this certain title, Elfen Lied, to be "deep", though I fail to understand why. It touches upon the concepts of racism and discrimination in the most superficial way possible. Lucy and other diclonius were born to kill humans, just like the wolf is born to prey on the sheep. It's in their genes, it's a natural instinct. Now if a man were to cage a wolf and let his sheep roam free, it wouldn't be discrimination, but an act of defence. The same logic is for elfen lied, where most diclonius are caged up and kept in miserable states so that they don't end up wiping out the human race. This is not racisms, neither is this discrimination, it's just simple self defence. This is not depth, this is just ridiculous and superficial handling of a theme that could have been done well.
The plot progression in Elfen Lied can be only described as utter stupid. As mentioned before, a "TOP SECRET PROJECT" washes through the sea only to land up on some beach where there are no military personnels to take care of such an important event. Then the couple who encounter Lucy, a naked girl with random horns, takes her home, because yeah, when you meet naked a creature with horns, you take her home and give her a nickname as if it were a stray dog, instead of going to the police to report the event. The military sends the worst soldier to find Lucy. Seriously, what kind of a soldier goes ahead and beats up his own comrade when going up against a man killing diclonius. Then the secret military group sends another diclonius to capture Lucy. It is to be noted that Lucy is the queen of diclonius specie, and as a queen, she has the ability to order other diclonius to do her bidding. What kind of a "secret" organisation sends an inferior being of the same species to take out its queen, specially when the queen has the ability to order the other around at her bidding through telekinesis? After this attempt fails they send in another diclonius because, yes, when "plan A" fails, you repeat "plan A" again. This organisation must be run by a bunch of retards. And when one thinks of it, it's even more stupid as the second diclonius has been known for its sheer hate for humanity to the point of killing any human at sight. What kind of a secret organisation sends in such a creature to an inhabited area with the ulterior motive of "saving humans"? Is this some sort of joke? Kouta later finds out that it was Lucy who had killed his entire family and ends up forgiving her in the blink of an eye. Completely logical.
The show is comprised of two clear phases. One phase where Lucy regains her memory where the anime becomes edgy and over the top. The other phase is when Lucy is in her amnesia mode where the anime becomes a Harem/SOL. The writers tried hard to make her cute but she is nothing more than pathetic. Roaming around naked for fanserivice to the point where she needs help to even change her panties.The changes between these two phases depend absolutely on the convenience of the plot and we yet don't know when she decides to be a pokemon and when a mindless yandere.
The characters are the blandest bunch of characters to be ever written and this might not even be an exaggeration. One would expect to have sympathetic feelings towards Lucy due to her tragic past, but everything is so "plot convenient" that the tragedies seem fake and lose any impact if possible and come out extremely forced. Other than Lucy, every character is just a bland stereotype. Kouta is your generic harem lead and Yuka is the "imouto in love with her brother" archetype. Oh! you thought the bullshit ended with random gore and nudity ? You're wrong, the writers also decide to introduce a incest romance sub plot that goes nowhere and just add to the convoluted mess. Other than Lucy and Yuka every other female in the show is a stupid loli, as if the "clever fan service" wasn't enough already. There's no development to any of the characters. To sum it up all, the characters are just a bunch of retards and lolis who lack development and any core personality.
The opening sequence is probably the best part of the whole show. With the beautiful soundtrack "Lilium" there are some artistic scenes which have no damn relation to the convoluted mess of a plot. The ost are nothing special either and a bunch of them are reused and rehashed constantly but yet fail to be anything memorable. The art and animation is rather average and have nothing special about it. The show lacks aesthetics and any sort of artistic detail. The only details that are probably put in, is during the gore scenes where the disturbing images of the bones of the characters can be seen. The character designs are repetitive to the point where three character have the same hair colour. At least give them some more distinguishable features ffs?
Despite trying to be deep, Elfen Lied fails horribly by only touching on it's themes very superficially hence lacking any message at the end of the day. It transforms itself into a generic harem with its seemingly "clever" tricks to fool the audience that it's something mature, but at the end of the day, it's just another mindless harem. Also a useless incest romance subplot that goes nowhere (why is this such a big thing in japan?) The characters lack personality or development and the art and music is nothing particularly special either. It tries to make up for it's flaws with the help of conveniences, cliches, mindless gore and nudity which only worsen the show and makes it "edgy" as all hell. This show might appeal to a gore fan, an imouto incest fanatic, a lolicon, a misogynist or a mindless harem lover. Unfortunately I'm not one of them.
To the people voting "helpful/not helpful" your feedback as a comment on my profile is greatly appreciated read more
Horror, Supernatural & a lot of bloodshed (neither recommended to be watched past midnight) *shiver*
Both have dark/creepy subject matter, violence, and tend to start episodes happy so they can fake you out for the batshit crazy ending. Basically if you've seen Higurashi, you'll probably like Elfen Lied more than that. It doesn't quite work in reverse though, because Elfen Lied's plot is more cohesive than Higurashi's, so if you saw Elfen Lied first, Higurashi might not be your thing. Both are very enjoyable in their own ways though.
Appearance is deceiving; deranged characters. Both involves gory serial murders. If you wish for a nightmare at night, watch Higurashi.
both have a similar cuteness meets brutality feel to them, EL is far more brutal, however Higurashi is far more frightening.
Crazy females, Blood and violence, good story.
Both have incredibly cute girls who like to kill people. They also have main protagonists who have absolutely no idea what's going on.
Both of these series pull at your emotions at times, yet also include terribly violent acts committed by girls that aren't even adults. Basically, you get the blood and the tears in both of these series.
This series is brutal and cute in some aspect just like Elfen lied, however there are many twists and a creepiness to this anime. If you enjoy bloodshed, violence, cute anime girls (not as innocent as they look) and something to make you think, this is the anime for you!
Cute characters engaged in bloody acts of violence, torture and death: both Elfen Lied and Higurashi deal with children turned vicious killers and victims of sheer brutality. Yet these series, as disturbing as they get, have a message of hope amidst the chaos. Higurashi's plot is a challenge while Elfen Lied is more straight forward; both are inspired by hauntingly pervasive soundtracks and are not for the faint of heart.
well its because their both horror anime and they have lots of blood and stuff in them..*i sugest not watching both with all lights out at night on halloween unless you watn bad dreams* and their both very good ^^
cuteness VS killing. both very good but i recommend higurashi.
They both keep you in suspense and their horror genre is awesome. It's pretty gorey.
Both feature cute, psycho girls with double personality, and young males who aren't aware of their friends' killing spree.
Both have an extremely complex plot and theme, both are frightening (Higurashi moreso) both have epicly cute girls too ^_^, both are 10's in my book.
Both animes have an interesting storyline full of blood and gore. ^^
they are both with gory scenes and both guys got involved in all the fights and dramas and both are surrounded with girls.
Both are extremely violent and gorey
Blood... check!! Violence... check!!! Demon killer loli-type girls?? CHECK!!!
They're both scary Anime... Elfen Lied has more of a sci-fi feel and Higurashi has more of a supernatural feel... but they're two of the most violent Anime that you will ever see!!
Two great Anime... that aren't for squeamish people ^_^
Although Higurashi leans more towards character tension, while Elfen Lied relies on shock value: Both are bloody, scary, and suspenseful.
Both series also have bipolar moments where they completely switch genres and look "innocent".
They both have plenty of violence and gore, which reminded me of the other. Although Higurashi has more of a creepy vibe to it rather than violence. They both have well developed characters that make you feel sympathic and disguested at the same time.
They are both flipped out and both very good not really much to say besides both are 10/10 IMO
Both are very violent, and have children as the main characters. Personalities are pretty similar, and both can switch from very cute to very dark almost instantly.
Blood drama and psyhology, horror. If you like to turn your brains on, you'll like it ;)
Blood, cute girls and some more...
You must watch both series
If you like a lot of gore, bloodshed and suffering children, this is for you.
both of these great animes contain alot of blood and gore
While both appear to be a simple, moe/bishojo on the surface, they reveal rather complex stories very quickly. I suppose the violence/gore is what links the two in my mind and lead to this rec, but while Elfen typically gets the nod from the reviewers, I feel Higurashi is the more complex of the two by a wide margin. That, and creepy little girls never go out of fashion in Nihon... Most of you have given Elfen the time, now show Higurashi some love!
Both anime are often scary. In both animes story is very mysterious and intresting.
Both shows seem to focus on the dramatic switch from sweet, likable characters to chaos and murder. These are both shows where the cast is shown throughout to be sweet and nice, as in any other normal anime, only to have terrible things happen in their lives. That particular duality is often hard to find, so if you enjoyed Elfen Lied, you'll likely enjoy Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.
There's a lot of gore in both but beyond that there's a lot of psychological depth in each if you're into that.
Cute anime girls with crazy violent gore.
Both have great story lines and similar psychological horror aspects, and both have you sympathizing with both the murderer and the ones being killed (most of the time). Elfen Lied is a lot more gory, but Higurashi still has some gore in it. Higurashi isn't as fan-servicey, though.
Both series feature a whole show of blood shed. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (When They Cry) is a little more towards a mystery as you watch multiple arcs of an awesome story.
If you enjoy watching cute characters creating havoc and destruction through horrors, then you should watch Elfen Lied.
(Elfen Lied has a mature rating due to nudity and slight adult situations)
Both are very gory and violent. Also there is the simularity in Lucy and Mariko and the cute violent loli's from Higurashi. Both of the anime have this macabre and depressing feeling all over.
Both are very dark at times. In both series, episodes start off on a lighter note, but something bad almost always happens. Elfen Lied is more graphic than Higurashi from what I've seen, but Higurashi gets in your head more imo.
Both shows have great story lines filled with blood, gore and girls. Both shows contrast themselves with a use of humor and comedy at times while at other times they are dark, scary and bloody. These two shows are some of the best anime out there and if you've watched one make sure to watch the other.
Both series explore dark subjects existent in this society - child abuse, justifications for homicide, etc. LOTS of blood in both. Several female leads in both series can be classified as yangires (i.e. Higurashi - Rena, Shion, Miyo; Elfen Lied - Lucy, Nana, Mariko)
A confusing story, but some excellent thought invoking scenes.
And of course, BLOOD.
Both are very Violent and bloody.
In both series there are a lot of violence scenes.
Similar as in both are dark and twisted animations. You can't go wrong with either of these two.
Both have the obvious element in common; cute little girls involved in a story that concerns gruesome and gory murders. But then there's also the level of gore present, the intensity of the violence and the emotional material present in both that make them similar. That's not to say that they are very different when it comes to story at least, but if you enjoyed one you should enjoy the other.
cute girls doing insane things
Both are gorey and violent. Plus both have some real pyshological elements in them. It's not just blood and violence but it makes you think as well.
The only way to describe these anime is to use the word MASSACRE. I don't think there is an episode of either where at LEAST 3 people don't die in some way/shape/form. This is a bloody murder-fest, if you are hardcore about it, this is about to be your best friend.
Both involve cute, shoujo-ish teenage girls violently tearing eachother to pieces. If you think you were "hardcore" enough to watch Elfen Lied, you just might be hardcore enough to watch Higurashi.
Both are Bloody and frightening. Elfen lied is more brutal and bloody, while Higurashi is more frightening and has more character development. Both are extremely good and both are must watch animes. if you liked one, you'll most likely like the other. don't watch if you're week of heart.
If you liked Elfen Lied you will love this show, there is fabulous gore. When the cicadas cry is all about curiosity, and wanting to know why every year one person will die, and one person will disappear.
The second season just gets better.
unapologetic gore, but still a great plot
both are dark brutal animes with some romance between the main characters
both have an innocent looking girl as a badass killer.
and both have a vain male surrounded by powerfull women.
they both have gore and psyco people :3
Action, Drama, Horror, Psychological
~ blood, blood, blood and one again BLOOD :333
~ both Higurashi and Elfen Lied shows us nightmarish fate of the main characters
~ soo... we can see dismembered bodies that are lying in the corners
What more I can say? I love these two anime and I recommend Higurashi and Elfen Lied to everyone who likes horros :3
Both anime turn innocent characters and twist them into dark soulless blood thirsty monsters, They will each keep you interested and at the edge of your seat, whilst also having some moments of fresh air with light comic relief but when they start to get serious, Questionable outcomes arise in both leaving you questioning the morality and sanity of the characters
These anime are same. They have gore genres with a lot of bloody stuff. When They Cry is better than Elfen Lied for me. Both main characters are yandere/yangire!! Elfen Lied is extremely ecchi while also comedic. You will like Elfen Lied if you like When They Cry.
Both anime are known for their excessive amount of gore and violence. Despite those, they are splendid masterpieces with unique storylines and outstanding characters that will remain unforgettable even with some disturbing scenes.
Both anime have a lot of gore, but they aren't stupid. Really, both anime have interesting story and sense.
Both feature intense scenes of violence committed by and on super cute characters and nearly whiplash inducing tonal shifts. If you like one you'll probably enjoy the other.
As both series are remembered for their gore aspects, I definitely recommend watching Higurashi. It takes the gore scenes, but adds more suspense, a story that will boggle your mind until the second season, and both shows are just excellent watches. If you're into gore and suspense, I highly recommend Higurashi
These two shows are probably the bloodiest two i've seen. They're both horror and mystery genre's with thriller. The plot on both are really well done and at first may be confusing really get you into the show!
Both have decent amounts of blood, gore, and conventionally attractive women with odd colored hair. I watched them one after the other.
Plot is quite different but both have cute girls with horror, gore, violence and supernatural.
Both are give away suspence and confusion
Very plot twisty and events are surprising
Elfen lied is about another species while higurashi is about a curse
Everything eventually gets connection but unlike elfen lied higurashi is much more complicated then that.
I HIGHLY recommend watching higurashi cant give anymore away or spoilerssss
Mistery, violence and gruesome murders, it all fits in the same genre. If you liked Elfen Lied but were left hungering for something longer than a 13 episode anime, you NEED Higurashi no Naku Koro ni! Starts off a bit slower and it is terribly confusing in the beginning, but as soon as it starts unraveling its secrets you are going to love it and you won't be able to quit watching it, just like Elfen Lied. Elfen Lied is Hirugashi's more explicit and less psychotic cousin.
blood, music, special powers, a hidden past.
both are very similar.
Bloodshed, gore, can shock an average viewer, and both of them pretend to be something they are not - EL does it way better though, since many people think it's actually deep, while DW's stupidity is obvious to most.
Both depict cruelty extremely well. Both have lovely characters which have a dark, violent and cruel side.
Both animes are very bloody and stories are similar with a sense of saving in both animes.
Also they both can become very emotional. I recommend Deadman Wonderlan to any one who likes Elfen Lied.
This series do have differences but once you take a deeper look, you just can't ignore the similarities...
1) Flying, bloody body parts everywhere
2) A girl with split personality
3) Main characters who lost his family/friends by the hands of someone he knows
4) They even both have eye violation scene!
These animes are both emotionally deep. Both animes involve a powerful female character with split personalities (Shiro/Wretched Egg and Lucy), who are attached to the male lead.Both are fastpaced and 12 episodes long.
If you can handle the gore of Elfen Lied, you can handle Deadman Wonderland a bit easier.
Blood and cut limbs galore.
Both have the same feeling and both are very gory. Many plot twists that will make you scared for what's to come
Equally bad for the same reasons, if you liked one you'll probably like the other.
A lot of blood, flashbacks, supernatural skills, similar female protagonists
Elfen Lied is the most violent show I've seen in anime. Deadman Wonderland, while not nearly as graphic, is still pretty gory. Other than gore, these 2 shows also share another similar trait. Both girls in the 2 animes have another dark personality.
They're both awful, trying to be deep with gore and nudity, and a complete waste of time.
both animes are sick and twisted in their own ways. They are dark and have some insanity that comes with it. It's violent, bloody and has gore obviously. Both very interesting though they have different settings and stories, if you're into this type of dark genre, then this is without a doubt for you. so check it out, you won't regret it.
Both these anime are obviously similar in many ways but are different in terms of execution. Elfen Lied focused more on drama and horror whilst Deadman Wonderland was more about action horror and the fight for freedom. Both also share the same way of infecting the victims with powers but in Deadman Wonderland it is not gender specific and the carriers or experiments are all held in a secret facility to be for experimental research that eventually drives said experiments to madness. Elfen Lied was uncensored while Deadman Wonderland was (Might just be the version I watched though). Both anime endings suffer from not being able to clear anything up and leaves some plot holes and unexplained situations.
Blood and gore, annoying main characters and lovely girls.
The keyword of both series is most definitely "blood". Blood is more or less the main character in both of the series, since we see it the most. Both stories are showing us the wish to survive, even if that means doing many brutal things along the way. With the main pair and focus being the main male lead & main female lead versus everyone, we are set into quite a splendid and similar survival ride both times.
Both have gore and a female character with a mysterious background. In both the main female character falls for the male protagonist.
I like both of them. In both the main character has a suprnatural ability. In Elfen Lied the main character, Lucy, a Diclonius, have a double personality. One is a ruthless killer and the other is a cute girl which can say only one thing "Nyuu". How about Deadman Wonderland, there the main character, Ganta, is the only survivor when his all classmates were killed by a misterious man in a red costume. Bothe of this anime are interesting. They have mystery and horror. I think you will like them.
The idea of the female protagonist with double personalities is all.
The split personality female lead with extreme superhuman powers is very similar. Both anime also have a dark undercurrent to them and general feel.
Both have characters which can cause a hell of a lot of damage to others in close proximity, one using blood another special hands. they start of with a brutal demonstration of what having the power can lead to, both in dark ways. they have twisted scientist who experiment with these powers and both have female main characters with similar personalities.
Both have a girl who seems innocent and happy but really has a split personality that is dark and cruel. Both have male leads that have a forgotten past with these girls. Both girls have secret powers, and both girls have killed people the male lead loved.
