In the near future, some girls are born mutated. Known as Diclonius, this new species is believed to have been chosen by God to wipe out mankind. Unlike regular humans, Diclonius have two horns on their head and ‘vectors' - invisible ‘hands.' Contained within a research facility unknown to the world, the Diclonius are experimented upon mercilessly; many die or develop a hate for mankind. One such creature, Lucy, is said to be the first of the Diclonius. She escapes from the facility, but while fleeing she takes a bullet to the head and is seemingly killed. However, it seems Lucy isn't quite dead yet; she's instead developed an alternate personality called Nyuu. She's washed up on a shore where two people, Kouta and Yuka, find her and bring her home, unaware that such a monster still lurks within Nyuu.
Packed full of tragedy and emotional scenes, Elfen Lied and School Days are full of hard situations to deal with. They each have a twist on the plot line that will keep you guessing until the very end. It seems that is is hard for the characters to express themselves and both series show a different side to human nature.
Both contain a love triangle, (School Days love triangle is more central to the story than in Elfen Lied). The main difference is Elfen Lied is more supernaturally based than the more realistic School Days. School Days starts out very sweet and Elfen Lied dosent but they both contain psychologically dark themes.
School Days and Sola start off innocent with a school romance quickly turning into a much more dramatic form of events and psychological tests for the main characters. Sola is more action packed and fantasy driven where School Days stays on a horrifyingly almost real path.
Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
We Were There and School Days involve very real life situations. The dramatic and intense moments played out in each are real life occurrences that could potentially happen. The over dramatic, almost manic feelings portrayed in both series are what make this recommendation.
