February '10 - Elfen Lied.
an anime DVD recently called Elfen Lied (Vol.
1). Ebay allows people to write reviews so
this is what I wrote:
what I have to say about Elfen Lied volume 1
I'm a big fan of anime but Elfen Lied was one
of those that I had heard of but never
watched until I bought it on DVD.
I won't tell you too much about the story
because it'll spoil the surpise but this is
one of those animes where the line between
good and bad is blurred and you're not sure
who to root for. It's extremely violent and
very, very, very gory with blood spurting
everywhere during the violent scenes. There's
also some nudity but it's not sexual in
nature and normally involves embarassment for
the main male character Kouta adding some
homour to the story. The story also contains
sub-plots about a relationship between the
characters Kouta and Yuka, and a homeless
girl and her puppy.
If you're looking for gore and violence then
this is the anime for you. It's only a 15
certificate which is suprising for the amount
of violence it contains. Some of it was
difficult to watch especially when arms and
legs come off.
The DVD contains 4 episodes, English and
Japanese audio with subtitles, clean opening
and closing sequence, character artwork, and
