  • We literally have a whole article just on the things we never see in Elfen Lied. But are all of these oversights?

    1- We never see a scene wherein Mayu overtly says "I guess Kouta is no menace to me after all." Or is the 'all adults are perverts' moment meant to show and not just tell this?

    2 - Lucy almost doesn't seem to react to the news of her mother's search and constant love that drove her. Or is her reaction shown in how she does her best to abide by Kouta's terms, and then rejects vengeance to save his life?


    I think there might be some of these moments where things don't need to be said in declarative sentences. OTOH, for me, Aiko walking around Kamakura asking after a pink-haired girl she once knew during the conclusion would have been nice.

    • Well... Considering the author of Elfen Lied, I say it can honestly go either way.

      Elfen Lied can be a deep, complex show... But at the same time, the concept of subtelty is often lost in Okamoto...

      So my veredict is that it can go either way. Personally, for example, I think Mayu started viewing Kouta as no longer a threat due to Nyuu's actions (which likely were not the last she'd do in front of Mayu).

    • Ok - let me add this one:

      Question: Was Kouta/Yuka simply taking Nyu home a kind gesture meant to spare her (and her family, if she had one) the indignity of a police visit or just lazy writing meant to jump-start the series' premises?

      Considering the odds and circumstances, I think it's fair to say it could go either way...
