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.

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.

Taking violence and turning it into a thing of beauty is quite a skill that is achieved by both Elfen Lied and Le Portrait de Petit Cossette.  These two series are filled with dark looming undertones mixed with cute, innocent looking girls.

Rosario to Vampire and Elfen Lied, although seemingly unrelated the personalities between Lucy and Nyuu and Mako’s vampire form and human form have similarities in the characteristics that each portray. The transformation has a more mature attitude and seems to be more capable all around while untransformed there is an innocent girl in place that relies on others for help.
