  • Like the cherry blossoms and bloody decapitations that saturate its frames, director Mamoru Kanbe’s grisly anime series ‘Elfen Lied’ contrasts the opposing forces of innocence and evil with equal parts beauty and violence. Sexy, pink-haired Lucy is part of a race of genetic mutants known as Diclonius, who sport horns in their heads and are able to savagely dismember their victims with the use of psychically controlled invisible arms called vectors. After Lucy makes a violent escape from the military compound that imprisons her, she washes up naked and vulnerable on a beach shorefront and is taken in by teenage cousins Kohta and Yuka. But unbeknownst to her kindly benefactors, the now mute and amnesiac Lucy - redubbed Nyu for her inability to speak - still retains traces of her true killer nature. This amply reveals itself when the government sends out a team of renegade soldiers and another female mutant assassin to find and destroy her. Bloody and violent yet beautifully animated, ‘Elfen Lied’ is introduced in this volume that presents the series’ first four episodes.
