MAL: Elfen Lied
It is said that species are constantly changing and evolving. Humans are no different. Elfen Lied tells the story of the Diclonius, a mutated species of human that possess invisible telekinetic arms called Vectors that basically give them telekinetic abilities, as well as a pair of short horns.
Our story starts with Lucy, a Diclonius who was held against her will and experimented upon by the government. Murderous and vengeful from an eternity in confinement and torment, Lucy escapes her prison only to receive a head injury that causes a second, child-like personality to emerge. The injured Lucy, brain-damaged and only able to say “Nyuu”, stumbles upon two humans, Kouta and his cousin Yuka. The two resolve to assist this injured girl, unaware of her hidden murderous personality or the world changing events they will soon find themselves tangled in.
