Several months have passed since the horrific events in Hinamizawa came to an end. Little by little life returns to normal, with Rika and her friends doing their best to put the past them and mend their old wounds. All seems to be going well until one day tragedy strikes again as Rika is unexpectedly involved in a bloody traffic accident that shatters her short-lived peace. As she wakes, she finds herself thrust back into the nightmare summer of 1983, and sets out to once again correct Hinamizawa's twisted killing cycle. Rika soon realizes, however, that such a task is more difficult than she first imagined; this Hinamizawa is drastically different from all those in the past, and now more than just her own life is at stake...

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

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...

If you liked one anime you will for sure like the other. Each anime has its own way of being funny. But there is also mad confussion in both. Rei fetures Commedy but then turns to mystery as elfen lied does. Both Animes are Godly and both favorite Animes of all time.


both of these animes mess with your head.  They are both pretty good, and they make a twisted environment that will keep your head spinning.  The style of the stories is different.  When you watch "when they cry" you will understand what I mean, but they have a lot of awesomeness in the violence and mindf*ck department.


Both elfen lied and higurashi no naku koro ni rei are different from your common animes. They are abit twisted. The story is really quite capturing in both anime


The both animes are intriguing and follow a twisted and dark plot.As well Elfen Lied and Higurashi follow the struggle of people who desire to rescue themselves from the corrupted world in which they live.

I usually don't recommend just the second or third season of a series, but I find these to be very close. They both center strongly around (especially near the end of each series) the difference between an imperfect world that one had earned and a perfect world that one is given. If you like that type of connection, these series would be a good choice.
