After a long awaited time I finally got my first anime box set. My older sister got it for me for my birthday and just got it at around Christmas time. I got all the episodes of Elfen Lied on two dvd disc. Basically I got the box set known as the “Perfect Collection” with all 13 episodes and some of the art work in the extra section of the DVD menu—I think. I haven’t gone through everything in the menus yet. Below are a few images I have taken of this box set. It nothing really special but I love this series.

(This is the back side of the Elfen Lied boxset)
(Finally the inside of the Elfen Lied box set with the two dvds. First dvd has episodes 1-10, second dvd has episodes 11-13.)
Last thing I would like to mention is that I also got a Naruto 2009 calender for Christmas. But to tell you guys that truth I haven’t watched Naruto yet. I still like the calenders though. Here is the front of the calender.

Well now it’s a new month. So I hope that you all had a Happy Halloween and stuff. It seems I still slacking off on some anime reviews, hopeful I get one or two done this month. I’ve just been kind of busy. Anyways, well I had a pretty good birthday, had some Korean food for my b-day dinner, mmmmm good. Now I’m waiting to see if I will get my Elfen Lied box set that I had asked for. This will be my first box set. Nothing too much else going on. I started watching Someday Dreamers, which isn’t too bad so far. I also am giving Soul Eater a look as well. I’m still watching Bleach, frist season of Code Geass and Moribito, slowly but surely. I finish the second season of Zero no Tsukaima and started the third season. There are a few other animes I have watched from DVD rented from Blockbuster Total access. But I don’t like the selection of anime blockbuster has. Anyways, that’s about it for the moment. Thanks for reading. 😀

Episodes: 13 & 1 OVA
Episodes Watched: 13 & OVA
Genre: Horror, Science Fiction, Romance, Ecchi, Drama, Action, Comedy

Brief Plot Information:

One Diclonius girl, Lucy, breaks out of confinement, kills her guards and escapes. She fell into the ocean after being shot and ends up on a beach. There, she meets Kota and Yuka. They name her Nyu and begin to live with her.”
The Likes of this anime:
In my opinion I though this was a quite good anime, the overall story, the art/graphic work and the characters. The overall story flowed from one episode to the next and the character development slowly developed through each episode. I guess this is why I got stuck watching the all of the episodes because I wanted to know what would happen next. The character, well actually characters I liked the most was the Lucy/Nyu split personality. Lucy seemed to have a bit of a dark side until towards the end[Spoiler Warning]
when her feelings towards Kota started to come out as he realized that she was the one who had killed his father and sister
The Nyu side was kind of cute in her ways though she could really speak any basic words except “Nyu” but you can usually tell what she means or how she felt when she spoke “Nyu”.
Towards the last couple of episode Nyu started to speak a few words to Kota or when she would call out Kota’s name
The Dislikes of this anime:
To tell you the truth, I really don’t have any dislikes of this anime. It was a very enjoyable anime to watch and I would recommend this to anyone.
The only thing I really didn’t like was how the series had ended in episode 13 and I kind of wish there was a 2nd season or something. Even the OVA didn’t help with the ending, just a little addition to some of the episodes towards the end of the series.
My Rating: 99/100 (99 because of the way the series had ended.)
I will probably post a further review of this anime in the near future.
