Is Elfin Leid a bad anime?

Post by ArturiaSaber on Thu Mar 15, 2012 10:07 pm

I am unsure why, but whenever I tell people that I enjoyed this anime, they judge me, stating that it is not a good anime. I suppose it is not very well liked or something?

I found it to be very tragic. I also cried. When I cry at the end, it shows that I very much so enjoyed it. It left an impression on me. I understand that it is renowned for having one of the bloodiest scenes in all of anime history, but I honestly found Hellsing a little more sickening to watch in the bloody parts. I believe it is the anime style.

So, can someone please inform me as to why Elfin Leid does not seem to be a very well liked anime?

It wasnt bad, but it wasnt great either. My complaints were Lucy's "dumbitch" mode... i just couldnt really stand the comedy it tried to pull off by lucy running around naked with an IQ of 10. Nana was also kind of an Unlikeable character. And near the end it felt like it was starting to focus more on gore than the actual story line. And the ending.. I simply hate cliffhangers.

Its a show i'd recommend to people who like allot of gore. Not for the story.

Meh, I really enjoyed it. It doesn't cover all of the manga and the manga has a completely different ending, but I didn't necessarily hate the anime ending either since it implies that Lucy lived and comes back home. Personally, I love dark anime and horror anime. I don't really care what people think about my tastes in anime.

Yeah I really liked it though the beginning was a bit off for me I liked it towards the end except for that last bit. Though Japanese kids are fucked up, really bro why do that too a poor pet.

It's been a while since I watched it so maybe I'd feel differently now but it wasn't bad, or particularly good.

It was one of the first few Anime series I saw though because at the time it was still being hyped to hell, over time the hatebase just grew more vocal than the fanbase.

I don't think anyone likes nana. Or that other little chick that has the same voice as nana. (Mayu) They are voiced by the same person in the anime I think. It bothers me.

I just, really felt bad for Lucy. I felt badly for all the diclonius.

But I also really like darker themed animes sooooo that is probably why I like this anime. I thought the music box had such a pretty tune. I just really felt attached to all of the characters. Except Kouta's cousin. I never really cared about her at all.

i absolutely loved the anime, and its not even particularly a genre i usually get in to (horror) so for me, i was highly impressed. no one ive ever talked to has said it was bad though, not sure why anyone would get that feeling...not greatest ever, but certainly not bad

I just got bit by the dark themed anime bug. I'm going to start reading goth and mpd psycho. Anyway I think nana was pulled out to keep pulling the heart strings on sensitive people and to give lucy a punching bag.

Is alright, not the best anime but you could do worse. Just DO NOT mention you like this on /a/. You will get blasted to hell and back. They troll that show as much as they troll Naruto.

Elfen Lied is an anime you either like (not love) or hate.

I didn't like how this "homosapien selected by God" has cat ears (=^3^=) but the plot line was an intriguing one. This is the type of show where once you start watching, you have to finish just to see how the story unfolds. Same thing with NHK.

Toward the end of the show, it started to steer away from the plot by unnecessary nudity and a crap ton of gore. Plus, I HATE shows, movies and games that end on a cliffhanger.

It's an ok show with an original concept (something you don't see in animes that often).
