As there are no reviews on the UK Amazon, I feel I should describe a little of what the item is about. Most details of this item can already be found on the US Amazon but I'll do my best to give as much information as possible about this item.

Although this Blu-Ray set states on the back of the case Region A only, it plays absolutely fine on my UK PS3. And I'm certain the Blu-Ray drive for PS3 Consoles are Locked to their own Region. So a UK PS3 would be Region B for the Blu-Rays only. Yet this set of Elfen Lied plays fine. So I'm guessing this Elfen Lied set is either Multi Region or Regions A and B. And yes, I have a UK PS3.

The set says it plays in 1080p High Definition. I'm not smart when it comes to the technical details but I can tell you that the picture quality is amazing. I never owned the original DVD set so I can't compare. However the quality of this set is sharp, clear, and so easy to see and look at.

The Audio is DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 for both English and Japanese. The sound is very clear. I watched through the complete set in Japanese with Subs and I didn't have any problems with the sound. I've only watched 1 episode in English though (Episode 10) and still, no issues with sound.

The English subtitles are done well. I didn't notice any mistakes. I'm not sure if they've just been taken from the DVD set or not. I believe I saw a review on the US Amazon of someone saying this. But their is nothing wrong with the Subs so really well done.

This set contains all 13 episodes as well as the OVA which is all on 2 Discs. Disc 1 contains episodes 1 to 10 and disc 2 contains episodes 11 to 13, the OVA plus Special Features. However, with most Anime sets, the Special Features aren't huge.

Purchased this recently and although Im no Anime conniseur (Paranoia Agent, Samurai Champloo and Cowboy Bebop are the only series I have watched) I can safely say this is a worthy addition to the aformentioned.

Technically the DVD is well mastered and upscaled looks a treat although the sound is quiet and the english dub (as mentioned earlier) is a little grating.

Its hard to pinpoint exactly what has got me about this series but as an analogy I would describe it as akin to good music where its the space between the notes which is important, not just the notes themselves (I hope this makes sense).

The script is sharp and poignant and genuinley touching and humourous with great characters and progression.

The nudity and violence is not gratutitous and always progresses the plot, its never done for 'fan service'.

Addictive as hell and it reminds me atmosphere-wise of Perfect Blue (but not so obtuse) I can't recommend this series highly enough.

I won't make any bones about it - Elfen Lied is not perfect by any standards. But that doesn't matter. It's not the best animated and the storyline has more holes than a colander, but it's undoubtedly one of the most compelling Anime's out there.

The story revoleves around a group of girl who are all Diclonius - an alien species, usually born to human parents - and their struggle to find acceptance in a world which views them as monsters while at the same time battling the madness which comes with their dual natures. The image of a teenage girl standing naked and streaked with blood, surrounded by the bodies of the soldiers charged with keeping her imprisoned, is one of the most enduring and iconic in anime.

The story leaps from tradgedy to tradgedy - from a the horrors of school yard bullying to the little girl who sacrifices herself to save the father who abandoned her. In any other anime this constant gloom would get boring quickly, but the compelling and tragic characters Lynn Okomoto created draw you into their world and make a place for themselves in your heart. And it is not without it's uplifting moments - the scenes of ordinary life amongst the strange little family the characters form are truely touching.

So please don't be put off by the low budget or the jumpy plot. The theme song says it all here - bizarre, incongruous but hauntingly and achingly beautiful. A real gem.

I've watched many anime series since I was about 12 years old, most of which are fantasy, adventure combined with good character development and visuals. Now 21, most of the series found in my DVD collection I've loved at first glance of the cover/synopsis and never looked back. The same goes for Elfen Lied.

The story centres around a mutant race known as "diclionius", who are mainly pink haired, female, have noticable horns growing from their heads and have psychic abilities from their invisible-to-the-naked-eye hands known as "vectors". The main focus from this race is Lucy, a sadistic woman bent on destroying the human race as she breaks free from a research facilty. After attempting to escape she washes ashore in a nearby town where two innocent college students find her...

After watching the first 2 minutes from the pilot episode, its easy to make the assumption that it's made for fanservice only. The opening titles have pictures of naked girls and Lucy, as she goes on a killing spree in the first episode, walks around naked, however after the pilot episode its goes into so much more depth than most 'fan service' based material.
Though the series is dominated by violence and sexual content (nothing porn related, just lots of nakedness), this is forgiven since the series takes a very dark tone. The violence and sexual content is meant to stress the dark side of humanity and empathise the trauma the character has suffered, not just to please its audience.

The music is beautiful, not just the opening and ending themes but the music score is wonderfully composed and fits the anime well. The art is some of the best I've seen, and though the series takes small elements from other series - as a whole it's original and is considered one of my favourites.
