3.0 out of 5 stars A Very Interesting Anime., 8 May 2009
Elfen Lied is a anime with elements of gore, action and adventure. The story is about a "Diclionious" named Lucy, who has pink hair with horns growing out of her head. She is dangerous, and is able to use stretching invisible hands called "Vectors." These enable her to take out any targets, and that is what deems her so dangerous, making her way out of a facility, aiming on cleansing the world of humans by taking their limbs off in a dramatic manner.

Soon enough she is in the hands of two teenagers, and unlike Lucy, she becomes invulnerable and isn't aware of what things are around her, saying the word "Nyu" continously. What you see is the same person, who changes depending on what happens, one moment she could be innocent and the next she could be extremely deadly.

The anime features nudity, but not sexually, just the human form of the female body, naked and strolling around. The storyline is very good, the ending (I won't give it away) is an ending that makes you question yourself, it makes you question what is going to happen and why.

The story also gives setbacks in the past throughout the series, giving you ideas on why something is happening in the future, why is the character behaving that way. It helps the storyline thicken, and answers questions into what you might have about it.

The music is lovely, especially the opening score, it is powerful and mysterious, and will stick with you throughout the series.

The dvd was wonderful, the main menu music isn't noisy and the Extras feature artwork, ADV previews on all four disks. If you find the English Dub isn't to your liking, you can change it to Japanese with English Subtitles to give it a fresh experience, depending if you can take the English voices, as some can be sore to the ears. It depends with each person, some people can find the voices good, and some can't bear it.

I usually watch comedy Anime so this was a new experience for me, and I enjoyed it. Truthfully I am not 100% sure I would watch it again, but if you like gore and suspense then this Anime is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best., 18 Feb 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Final Fantasy VI (Video Game)
Final Fantasy VI on the Playstation finally gave European players the chance to experience the game without the need to have a Super Nintendo (Realised on the system as Final Fantasy III) and it was worth it.

The game focuses on one character to begin with but other characters become introduced and each have an amazing story, the characters themselves are so indepth that you will not have the problem as some of those pointless characters such as Quina from Final Fantasy IX and Yuffie from Final Fantasy VII. There is plenty of comedy which you can find amusing with the dialogue in the game and a few touching moments.

The gameplay itself is wonderful, the use of espers is probably one of the best system in the series, you can use a range of fighting techniques that can help so well in a battle.

The graphics have so much colour and depth, it has many tricks and the birdseye view on the world map as you use a character can change when using a chocobo, seeing the bird and your character in front of you, making it more enjoyable when traveling the world map.

Sound is perfect, after a while you can find yourself humming along to the tunes, the music being a strong point of Uematsu's career. It is fantastic for each parts of the game, the soft ballad when your going through a touching moment, and strong ballads when seeing the main enemy in the game.

I recommend that Final Fantasy VI is worth buying, even if your not fully sure, rent it if you can. But in my opinion, buy it, it is worth the money and the whole experience, becoming a prized collection in the Final Fantasy series.
