There are human experiments preformed and when these super beings make their escape they are ruthlessly hunted.  Lots of gore and blood follow suit making both series action packed for a mature audience.

Elfen Lied and Code Geass have a dark inner past blurred into the storyline.  The series really show the dark side humanity forms and moral issues in every day society.

Right off the back in Elfen Lied and My-Hime horrible things happen or have happened to the main characters. Their struggle during the time of the series is how they have to deal with the hardships they have already faced and the challenges that they will face for the rest of their lives

Variante has a female protagonist: with more power than she realizes, goes through alot of emotional breakdowns, stories can't be called original, but they are done well.

Difference is, Variante is short, sweet, to the point, REALLY keeps you in suspence, and doesn't use fan service to keep people interested. Both are good manga of course :)

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.
