    Elfen Lied

    I'm on Episode 8 of this truly epic anime series, recommended to me by Aztek, when I look up the UK rating... it's a 15!

    Frankly, down to the extreme violence of the first episode I really was expecting to see it as an 18 based on that episode alone. But no.

    The series itself is breathtaking. The soundtrack has one of the best surround mixes I've heard in a long time (dialogue is placed not just solely in the centre channel, but in the back, left and right channels relative to the composition of the shots). The visuals are incredibly stunning, detailed, sharp and engrossing. It's just incredible.

    Absolutely. It's pretty brutal stuff, and definitely not for the faint of heart.

    Spoiler:
    In one episode, there is a flashback of the main character (Lucy) as a child when her puppy gets beaten to death with a vase. She rips them limn from limb. One character was molested by her father and ran away. That's the type of brutality I'm talking about


    Still, it's a really good story. I'd recommend it.

    There are 14 episodes, however one of them is an OVA (original video animation) that is set between episodes 10 and 11. This episode is not contained on any of the commercial DVD sets that I am aware of.

    Psst...Ghost...do a preservation.

    I've gotten ahold of the OST, which also has a fan composite of the Lilium theme from everywhere it can be heard in the TV series.

    I want to do a fan edit of this, basically combining the whole series into one feature film.

    Go for it. It would be difficult, and there is an important flashback in the OVA, which I do believe hasn't been officially released.
