Wait what? Which part is trolling? I'm really curious now.
I'll mention that Geass gets away with more by way of having interesting, strong, and memorable characters, as well as an intriguing setting and fights that are enjoyable. Elfen Lied has *elements* of an intriguing setting and it has... fights.
Note how Geass only nets 3 stars from me. I haven't even gotten through Death Note yet.
One of my biggest peeves is when a show pretends to intelligence or culture well enough to fool someone who's not following closely but falls apart under close scrutiny.
I mean the writing is weaksauce because it relies solely on coincidence to ratchet up the tension. I just watched e7. I'm enjoying it more than I did last time but still. Lucy just happens to get picked up by the guy whose younger sister she killed. He just happens to have no memories of the incident so it can all come crashing back to him at a later date. She just happens to develop a second obscuring personality from brain damage.
I could go on. It's a giant tower of things that had to happen in exactly one way in a world in which things can go hundreds of ways. If you start to question the chances, as I have at numerous points, all possibility of immersion breaks. It's not a show to engage the mind on any level.
The scene in front of the shrine in e6 where they're both about to realize everything and tell it all and their respective disorders just happen to kick in within fucking seconds of each other made me facepalm so hard I almost walked away (it's probably this scene that drove me away last time).
