Synopsis

This episode takes place within episode 11 as Nana attempts to fit in the household while trying to find a chore that she can do and get used to Nyu's presence whom she only knows as Lucy. Running away after getting scolded, Nana ends up in the beach and meets Bando whom she promised to bring Lucy to later that night. Leaving the household with Nyu, it begins to rain and Nyu slips, hits her head, and is knocked unconscious. As Bando waits and everyone else worries where they might be, Nana, with an uncoscious Nyu, takes shelter as Lucy's consciousness begins to come out and dreams an old memory of how she was captured and why she doesn't attack Director Kurama. As the rain begins to let up, Kouta and the others find Nana and Lucy and takes them home. There, Nana finally finds the chore that she will be doing - feeding the dog.

Well, I went into this expecting a continuation of the ending. I was very disappointed in that regard, as this ends up taking place during the series, and doesn't do much of anything to resolve some issues that were left unexplored. It's more an exercise in light-hearted comedy with minimal background information (the only useful thing we really find out is how Lucy got captured in the first place). At times, this feels like another series entirely.

The art and music and seiyuu rawq just as much as they do in the series proper, so I'm not going to elaborate.

The "Elfen Lied" DVD special feels like an attempt to do a "quick fix" on the story that they botched up in the original series. This attempt resulted in somewhat mixed results. On one hand it does succeed in shedding some much needed light on certain events, such as the capturing of Lucy, however on the other vector, the explanations feel like they've been shoehorned in, resulting in inconsistencies in areas such as character development, and raising almost more questions than it answers. This is inline with what I would expect from "Elfen Lied" though, given its track record of throwing in large scale twists read more
