Elfen Lied

BASED ON 13 OF 13 EPS WATCHED
9 JUN
2013

This was my first real anime (as in no pokemon/digimon), or what introduced me to the genre, but the score reflects what I think of it after watching much more. At first I would have given it a 10, but then Clannad came along...

Story: A fairly nice concept, well paced over the episodes. Pretty crude sexual 'jokes' and a generic harem feel, but that doesn't interfere much in my opinion.

Animation: Rudimentary art and animation, but it still gives off a nice feel.

Sound: Beautiful OP, I've forgotten the ED but I think it was average. Voice acting for dub was fairly average, sub is supposed to be the same. Music was nice as well.

Characters: Pretty flat and bland on the whole, but I still found myself loving Nyu/Lucy. Again, this didn't really interfere with the anime itself too much.

Overall: There's a massive inconsistency between the overall score and others here, but that's because EL just has a charm I can't pick out. It's worth noting that this one really gets the water works going.
