I was putting off watching this entirely, but is it really that bad? Most people IRL say it's enjoyable.

It's completely retarded and usually one of the first few anime a lot of people on here seen.

The fact its based on a manga that began to pick up pace during and after airing doesn't help.

Go in expecting dumbshit and you'll be fine.
>>
It festers in a pile of anal mucus. A hurr durr romantic comedy about a schizophrenic alien girl with psychotropia cocking up the earth with her shitty DNA. Don't fucking watch it.

nah, it's not that bad. It's one of the most hilarious anime I've seen so far. I enjoyed it for that reason. It's like as if some edgy 13 year old wrote it.

Blood, limbs, severed heads, "nyuu", muh love, incest attempt. Rinse and repeat.

Alien? Sure you aren't thing of DearS?

The loveable dependent retard archetype is one I'm glad is mostly dead.

Came back a little with Pet Girl and Yuki-Chan.

It is pretty graphic, but there have been a LOT more violent animes since its airing. It also ended in a pretty shitty spot that wasn't even close to half way through the manga and just suddenly...ended.

To be fair, the manga turned into a goddamn mess of a series, but it really need some better closure or a new OVA similar to Hellsing.

Mashiro was far below retarded. Didn't they check to see if she has a brain?

elfen lied and everything else okamoto lynn has created is terrible and should be avoided.

Tomoyo's Room was amusing.

It's enjoyable. /a/'s just pickier than most people who get bitched at for being picky.

it's completely average and better than a lot of the seasonly shit /a/ circlejerks over
>>
Thanks guys, I guess I'll watch like 3 episodes and continue if I like it
>>
>>133736598
It was good for its time and is still watchable for the nostalgic value. I still love that opening song.
>>
I think it's garbage, the first 10 minutes are the best part out of the whole thing.

The characters are as flat as cardboard, and almost all completely unlikable dolts.

The terms gets overused by some, but it honestly one of the most try hard and edgy things I've seen. It's a middleschooler's idea of what makes something dark and mature: tits and gore.

So bad it's good

Kinda like Bakemonogatari.

Most people IRL are casuals who haven't watched more than 10 titles.

Elfen lied just has the whole novelty of cute girls suffering and over the top gore going for it. Which in this day and age isn't particularly novel anymore.

It's ultimately a lackluster show.
>>
Watch it if you want a good laugh.

Edgy trash, the only part worth watching, if you have the same fetish I have :^)
>>
It was fine for me ten years ago but only because I didn't know better. Most people have some attachment to it because it was, alongside School Days, one of those "gory animes" that edgy kids tried to think as choking.
I don't know, I liked it in it's time but now I can't see myself enjoying something like this.
>>
>>133736598
5/10 anime and lucy is my waifu

I wouldnt ask that here, /a/ hates pretty much everything. I personally found it enjoyable. Not a master piece or anything, but it had some good moments, would reccomend it.
>>
>>133743907
This was like seven years before School Days.

/a/'s taste is extremely suspect, and it's doubtful that it's just the gore, which as you said is common, that draws casuals to Elfen Lied. And /a/ hates anything that casuals like, by default, which, before even getting into anything implied by pic related, sort of contributes to why /a/'s opinion is shit more often than not.
