Elfen Lied: a post-mortem

So I powered through the series today (relatively short at 13 episodes), and while I really liked the story and the resolution, I was NOT a fan AT ALL of the constant nudity, all of it underage, in some cases from girls as young as eleven years old, or the underage rape sequence.

The show absolutely in no way needed to include that. I understand the themes, but there are a lot of better ways to go about presenting your story than to slap underage tits all over everything. It left a completely sour taste in my mouth and as such, I really can't recommend it.

As I said, there was nothing wrong with the story itself, but it was completely ruined for me because of the sexual content.


Final grade: D-
