From the first scene to the last battle, Elfen Lied is drenched in blood. The horror anime is one of the most controversial in anime history. It reveals the dark sides of human nature and doesn't shield the viewers from any scenes of violence.

A new type of human beings, Diclonius, are born, they have horns on the skulls and can control invisible hands called vectors that can pass through object and rip human beings into shreds in a blink of an eye.

The "queen" of this new species is Lucy, who has been kept at a facility for experiments. However, by killing the guards and the majority of the population in the lab, she escapes. When she falls into the sea, she suffers a head trauma, and develops a less violent and more childlike personality called Nyu.

A local university student Kohta and his cousin picks up Nyu and adopt her into their family. Not knowing her true nature and her past, they have no idea that they have been drawn to the centre of the brutal wars that await them and bloodshed that will soon wash away the last remnants of their illusions of a peaceful world.
