EL Manga covers

Like sands through the hourglass...

The Elfen Lied List of Manga Chapters shows a basic rundown of the fates of characters and situations, in addition to listing the chapters in order. Since it lists deaths and final appearances, this page by definition contains major spoilers.

LegendEdit

I = Introduction Of Character (or location)

D = Death of Character (or destruction of location)

I & D = Introduction & Death, reserved for one-time characters who nonetheless have noted impact on the storylines.

F = Final Appearance without known death. For when a character is simply not heard from again, but no final fate of any kind has been indicated beyond the end of the story.
