Critic Reviews for Elfen Lied Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (0)

It may sound exploitative, and it is, but Elfen Lied has a lot more going for it. For all their stupid decisions, the characters have strong motives and strong feelings, and the tangly plot effectively brings their many different facets to the surface.

Like "Lifeforce" on mecha speed, Elfen Lied... is a damn entertaining watch.

Feb 21, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Beneath all the layers and layers and layers of blood and dismembered body parts, Elfen Lied has a weird kind of charm.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Extreme graphic violence and nudity is the selling point for Elfen Lied... The atrocities keep going for the entirety of the show but not without substantial themes to justify it.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

This is a show that is driven by the characters for better or worse. Some characters will piss you off and some characters you can't help but love, and you may forget that they're ruthless killing machines. Pro tip: don't trust anything cute in anime.
