Has a much lighter tone than the original although still has the dark atmosphere. Pretty good overall.

Well this answered my question about how Lucy got captured when she was little, but still don't know how she met that girl and etc.

Cute episode though no killing (except for Lucy's friend) but no gore like killings.

The ep started really slow... but was nice to see how lucy got catched (btw, hard to believe that lucy had a friend...).

I loled with Bando at the end xD

The flashback saved the OVA from being totally shitty, it's story taken out of nowhere... And btw, the flashback's story is taken from the manga, yet in the manga it was waaaay more complex and interesting (the little girl who got shot murdered her family members before, that's way she had blood on her clothing, and the relation between she and Lucy was deeper). Actually, I would prefer it if the entire OVA was about that story, instead of some stupid house chores...
And humorous stuff like this doesn't fit Elfen Lied's atmosphere at all. I'm really disappointed by this OVA.
Reading this comment intrigued me a lot more than actual show. The OVA best performed in comedy (oh Bando, you gullible fool). Nana's death stare in the cleaning part was funny, but the flashback was weak without any backstory to it

Bando thought that he can kill two birds with one stone. But i didn't happen.
Cant believe that this was a special.

It did explain all the questions I had when reading the manga though... I liked it.

A calm and fun break from the rest of the series, Nana is really clumsy. It was interesting to see how Lucy actually got caught, albeit sad that she lost the last person she had faith in. Hope to see Nana in those cute outfits in the remaining episodes I have left!

I just finished watching the (10 year late) English dub release and OMG why couldn't they get the full original English voice cast?!!! why God why?! why Section 23 why?!!!! WHY?!!!! why couldn't they get Kira Vincent-Davis[Lucy/Nyu], Adam Conlon [Kouta], and Jason Douglas [Bando] to come back?!!!! WHY?!!!

This is my favorite anime of ALL TIME and the English dub was PERFECT and its the only way I can see Elfen Lied, but the perfection was ruined! I am sad, raged and depressed because of this. The only redeeming quality is that they finally dubbed it and got Sasha Paysinger [Nana] but dammit WHY?! I can not die in peace now. I would go as far as to PAY MONEY for Section 23 to re-due the English dub for the OVA with EVERYONE from the original English cast and re-release the Blu-Ray collection and I would buy it in the instant it's available, but dammit this just makes me very sad :(

Nice and relaxing. :)
Some interesting information on how Lucy got captured, too.
