This anime is extremely violent and bloody and contains expilict nudity. If you can handle this then Elfen Lied is the anime for you. It has an awesome story with great characters. My only problem with it is some of the voices are kinda annoying like Yuka's but you get over it. My other problem with it is that the anime only does half the manga so you have to read it to find out what else happens. All in all though an excellent anime to add to your collection.
