For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Yakumo was just a normal boy... until he died in a tragic accident. Now, resurrected by the last of a race of powerful creatures, he has become her Wu, an immortal servant. Together, they must battle against Benares, the all-powerful Wu of the dark lord Shiva. What dark secrets from Pai's past will this battle unearth?
Both Elfen Lied and 3x3 Eyes feature lots of blood and have a very similar main character. If you liked one, try the other.
Both Elfen Lied and 3 x 3 Eyes have a female with two personalities as the lead character, and both contain a fair amount of gore. What sets 3 x 3 Eyes apart from Elfen Lied is that it doesn't contain any of the relationship humor (changing nyuu, anyone?) nor a wicked government theme as Elfen Lied does. Instead, 3 x 3 Eyes focuses more on magic and beating the really evil guy. To sum it up if you liked the split personality and the gore of Elfen Lied you definitely will like 3 x 3 Eyes.
In both Elfen Lied and 3x3 Eyes, an ordinary male protagonist is shoved into abnormal circumstances and thus tied into the life of an unusual girl with two personalities. There wouldn't be any story if love didn't sprout from this, nor the occasional humor, but the gore and violence definitely makes these not lighthearted. They both share a similar feel and are both excellent; you can not go wrong with either of these if you like this type of show. Though 3 x 3 Eyes doesn't have the ecchi qualities of Elfen Lied and has more horror elements.
The overall mood in each of these anime is dissimilar, but they share lead female characters that go from dangerous, and even evil, to sweet and completely innocent in a heartbeat. Both series are violent, Elfen Lied being much more so. Both anime develop a romantic relationship involving an ordinary boy and an extraordinary girl. 3x3 Eyes has a supernatural element that is absent in Elfen Lied's more realistic setting. The split personality of the main characters, and the problems they cause is the main reason to justify this recommendation.
Both 3x3 Eyes and Elfen Lied have a main female character with a double personality; she is either a cute and innocent teenager or a deadly and powerful creature who seeks to have a normal human life.
3 x3 Eyes explores the innocent yet very powerful Pai in the same way that Elfen Lied does with Lucy. Both Lucy and Pai have two personalities, one being cute and innocent and the other being very powerful and ruthless.
Both leads have 2 very different personalities. One is a pretty clueless fun loving girl. The other kills without remorse. Both anime have a lot of bloodshed. 3x3 eyes doesn't have any of the ecchiness that Elfen Lied does. If you liked one check out the other.
A powerful girl with a split personality disorder, a clueless boy, and powerful forces looking to destroy the girl. With a mixture of drama and graphic scenes, the feel of the animes are similar.
Both main characters Lucy and Pai have split personalities. And they are different from humans. Lucy being a Diclonius and Pai being a Demon.
The main female character in both Elfin Lied and 3x3 Eyes have very strong forceful personalities, not to mention the fact that neither one of them is human! There are some awkward developments with the hero of the story because the personality of the heroines changes from nice to an entirely different character altogether, one that is stern and even antagonizing. The charm of the innocent girl verses the serial killer aspect in both Pai (3x3 Eyes) and Nyu (Elfin Lied) is very intriguing.
When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...
Both Elfen Lied and Highschool of the Dead are filled with blood. The creators don't hodl back when it comes to blood. They are both full of violence and gore. They are just both awesome.
Ecchi and violence do I need to say more...okay I will. While the main story of both series is fairly different the main focus of each series is not and that is to entertain the viewer with scenes of complete/partial nudity and lots of gore. With an overall dark tone to both series if you've already seen one of them then you should strongly consider checking out the other.
Both Elfen Lied and High School of the Dead are full of over the top action and neither one shies away from showing violence or gore. Both shows also feautre copious amounts of fan service.
If you liked High School Of The Dead, you will also like Elfen Lied, and vice versa because they are two heavy anime, where there is no censorship in the blood, or violence. And that mixed with Ecchi. The story is dramatic, and you will certainly enjoy watching either.
If you liked the imense amounts of blood and gore that spilled from the bodies of the people in elfen lied. Then Highschool of the dead is for you and it has the same amount of intense action that will have you wanting more! and of course gripping the edge of your seat
Although theres story lines aren't in any way, shape or form close, what brings these two series together is the gore. Both showcase fantastical gruesome amounts of gratuitous gore, and leave you feeling unclean and depressed at some of the scenes.
Blood and gore, powerful women, and ecchi scenes galore. The animation styles are also similar. While the plots might be different, both play on human emotions.
Elfen Lied and Highschool of the Dead are two heavily ecchi, heavily gory titles that will easily appeal to the same audiences. I preferred Highschool of the two, but you'd likely appreciate both.
Action packed gore and violence are seen in High School of the Dead and Elfen Lied. Each series involving high school aged people taking on some element of the undead or supernatural.Both series with graphic scenes of the gore and ecchi nature for some entertainment.
Both are gore fests with some light being shone on the darker side of humanity as one of the main themes. Highschool of the Dead will show peoples' greed and selfishness and resorting to baser instincts in order to survive, while Elfen Lied's main focus is the prejudice and suspicion that sometimes overwhelms and controls people to do terrible things to those undeserving.
Nakedness abounds in Elfen Lied, while extreme near-nakedness and panty-shots and fanservice are stuffed into nearly every scene of Highschool of the Dead. Both combine splattered heads with lots of ecchi, so if you're a fan of this oddly-satisfying combination, try either or.
Both High School of the Dead (HotD) and Elfen Lied are animes that are characterized by their violence and dark undertones. What stood out the most to me is that both of these animes put slapstick comedy in the middle of what would be a terrible situation to sometimes lighten the mood - they also hold nothing back when it comes to ecchi. If you liked one, give the other a shot.
With a past shrouded in mystery and a blank memory, Shiki Tohno seems to be just another "average high school student". That is, until he nearly kills a female vampire with his secret deadly ability to "see the lines". His journey to unlock the secrets of the Tohno family and unbury his own lost memories has only just begun, and now he must also help the woman, Arcueid Brunestud, find a lethal phantom named Roa, and kill it using his ability.
If you felt strange tension in the air while watching Elfen Lied then you should try Lunar Legend Tsukihime. The main character named Shiki has unique power to kill just like Lucy. The plot of Lunar Legend Tsukihime isn't very alike to Elfen Lied but the mood of the whole series and some characters are similar. So check it out!
Both Elfen Lied and Tsukihime have a masterful storyline and nice bloody scenes. These series are both outstanding and deal with unnatural creatures.
Both Elfen Lied and Tsukihime are short but offer good stories. They both deal with internal conflicts. They both have a lot of violence and aren't the happiest anime, so they have their sad parts. In both anime the main characters learn forgotten memories from the past as the story goes on. I really enjoyed watching both of these anime and in both of them you will wonder what happens after last episode.
Both Elfen Lied and Tsukihime successfully tell the supernatural tales of young individuals who, as they slowly uncover the mysteries of their pasts, discover a power that will serve to destroy the world they live in or the ones they come to love. If you were drawn into the darkness, mystery, bloody nature or supernatural ambience of one, than you'll find it difficult not to enjoy the other.
I think I'm making this recommendation because of the interesting and similar story lines that Elfen Lied and Tsukihime have. In Tsukihime, Shiki has lost part of his memory because of the shock of a violent event, while in Elfen Lied, Lucy (who has amnesia) tags along with Kouta, even though Kouta doesn't know much about Lucy.
If you like supernatural, mysterious, and dark anime with little bit of action and a fair amount of romance and drama, you'll definitely like both of these anime.
PS: Many don't agree, but to me, the music in both anime feels similar.
Elfen Lied and Lunar Legend Tsukihime does not have very much in common. Still, I coulnd't help getting the same feeling from both series. That dark atmosphere, gruesome action sequences, and a little feeling of horror. And just like Elfen Lied, Lunar Legend Stukihime is not for the feint of heart. Still, I reccomend watching it if you liked Elfen Lied.
When you look for some good thriller story, both Elfen Lied and Tsukihime should satisfy you. You can find some cliffhangers as well as abnormal motives in these stories.
Both series create relationships and struggles between they unsuspecting main character and the iconic "on the run" girl, both use mystery, suspence, and admittedly some violence to keep a riveting performance. If either is enjoyed then the other will surely be just as enjoyable or even better.
both anime have a great ost also they give this supense/mystery/drama feeling that i loved. also the characters in both anime have a dark past! if you like want i recommed that you try the other one both anime are just great!
The supernatural tales of two female individuals trying to go about their every day lives while relying on a seemingly weaker male character is what you get in both Lunar Legend Tsukihime and Elfin Lied. While watching the viewer will uncover the mysteries of the characters past seeing how it will effect their relationships in the future.
Rin is a private investigator with an advantage: near immortality. Thanks to the spores of the Yggdrasill tree, both she and her assistant Mimi have lived many years longer than the average person. That isn’t to say that being immortal doesn't have its problems. With 'angels' wanting to devour them, the being Apos sending wave after wave of professional assassins to kill them, and constant hangovers from long nights of drinking, being immortal still has its downsides. With Apos' attempts at removing them from the picture increasing, can Rin and Mimi figure out what he is after so they can return to their morning shots of Vodka?
Gore, Killings and Fantasy, Ecchi; if you look for these kinds of things in your daily anime, then Mnemosyne and Elfen Lied are for you. Both animes feature deadl, mysterious women, with secrets. Both animes have an element of ecchiness in them, along with many gory scenes.
Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne revel in bloody violence, action, and nudity- so if those are your bag, these series are for you. That being said, they're also mysteries featuring tough female characters with special abilities and shadowy pasts. Both series are extremely campy.
This two anime are very much alike and especialy in ecchi and horror aspects.While Elfen Lied is abit more concentrated on horror with some pointless ecchi aspects Mnemosyne combines extreme horror with sexual themes in a way that no other anime does.Of course there are many differences between this two but in both ecchi and horror aspect they are kinda same.Im sure that if you liked one of this two shows you will definitely like the other as well.
Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne are right up there with each other in terms of similar gore, nudity, and vulgarity levels (high). Both of these anime also have strong non-human female protagonists. Only major difference to note here, is that Mnemosyne does major year leaps forward in time every continuing episode, while Elfen Lied's story is told all in the same time-line.
So in turn, if you like one, you will most likely enjoy the other.
Both Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne are stunningly beautiful, but to find the source of their beauty you need to journey across a sea of fanservice and gore. They are both utterly tasteless, and they both feature doctors conducting medical experiments. Not to mention that they are both good.
Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne are perfect for each other! Both of these series are extremely action packed with great fighting scenes and tons of gory images in which the non-human females leads are the ones displaying.
Both of these animes are targeted at an older audience, and both have a female lead with a supernatural ability that forces them to struggle against a secretive organization of sorts.
Mnemosyne and Elfen Lied are both two of my favorite animes of their genre in their own right. They both have a very unique and often times outright sadistic feel to them. They both follow a female lead character who revels in fighting and killing while at the same time having a totally different and kindhearted side to them. I would definitely recommend you watch the other if you watch one, as I feel they compliment each other nicely.
A great deal of suspense, graphic violence, and nudity make Elfen Lied and Mnemosyne natural companions.
Both have blood, suspense, and great story lines. If you like one, chances are you'll like the other
One day a light descends from the sky and splits into the ideal girls of Takeru and Ryou. That is where this gentle and vaguely romantic story about our ugly and beautiful world begins. Soon enough the story plummets into the secrets of global extinction and the meaning of life. Everything in this world that is beautiful has something ugly in it, and that ugliness is part of the secret of its beauty. Even for romance this is true...
This Ugly Yet Beautiful World is very similar to Elfen Lied, except for the gore element. It has the same twisted plot and some ecchi, but gore is not included. If you can stand the complete lack of slaughter in a show that looks like it was based on Elfen Lied, you should try watching TUYBW.
Both of the series has cute girls with power to destroy, they are both amzing and im sure you'll enjoy both of them if you enjoy naked women, super powers, and total badassery.
Both of these fantastic anime start off with similar story lines. The girl who forgot her past, for whatever reason, now must depend on the kind hearted man with the troubled past to take care of her until all the secrets from her past are revealed. However, each anime has enough of a unique twist that it is worth investing in them both.
Elfen Lied and This Ugly Yet Beautiful World are a perfect pair. In both we have non-human female characters with a dual personality and a potential for being highly destructive that suddenly find themselves surrounded by humans. With no memory of the past, these girls provide the drama with plenty of nudity along the way. This Ugly Yet Beautiful World had many comic moments that eventually give way to deeper reflections while Elfen Lied is known for its violent content and emotional tragedy.
They both deal with girls that are not human and how the human guy they love interacts with them. They also both have a cousin that other cousin. They are more than similar and if you have only seen 1 your missing out on the other.
These shows are much alike and very entertaining in different ways. Both girls have split personalties that want to cause harm and destruction and other side to them is they are nice and sweet. Lucy/Nyuu from Elfen Lied is a mass murder and Hikari is an outer space being wanting to destroy the earth.
Elfen lied is very violent show a lot blood shed in it some hot shots in the show.
This Ugly Yet Beautiful world is very funny show (thats my opinion) it also has hot shots in their and it has a good romance story. (Thanks for reading my recommendation MegaB)
In these animes you have the main female characters that have the potential to bring about the destruction of the human race. However, to help you see the main male protagonist has the potential to influence her to fall to either the good or the bad. Both of these shows are about the emotional interaction between the characters.
As the series progresses you get to see the up and downs of the relationship as well as the beauty of love.
Both of these anime evolve around a young man who stumbles upon a loli-character who is frequently naked, doesn't understand human habits, and has amnesia. As the anime progresses, the loli-character is shown to have a destructive alter ego. While Elfen Lied has a a focus on bloodshed, the animes have similar character dynamics and relationships.
This similarities between This Ugly Yet Beautiful World and Elfen Lied are astounding. Both star a "different from the rest" heroine who has lost her memory from trauma; both girls also have two distinct personalities: one being sweet and naiive, the other bloodthirsty and vengeful. These animes are about human nature and the question of whether or not humans are inherently evil and incapable of redemption. They also feature a similar cast, from the clueless male to the male's friend (who happens to be a girl and has a secret crush on him). If you enjoyed one, you should try out the other!
