The Plot of Elfen Lied
All the while, Kouta takes in Muya, Nana, and the off and on Nozomi. All the characters are previously interwoven between one another. The two that share the darkest past is Kouta and Lucy. Everyone is after the horned girl or Nyuu throughout the manga. She is also naked throughout the manga with other various girls. Apparently Diclonii do not wear clothes.
The Characters of Elfen Lied
Nyuu is a very clueless girl. She can not remember anything. She is secretly Lucy, a violent Dilonius with the intent to destroy mankind. Yuka is Kouta's cousin. She has been in love with him since childhood. She hates Kouta for forgetting his past and his promise to her.
Nana is another Diclonius which is keeping watch over Nyuu and Lucy. She is very shy and very caring. She does have a violent side though. Muya is a shy runaway that was sexually abused. Her and Nozomi, a passionate singer, are the only two humans with no prior history with the group.
The rest of the characters were done well, but not enough to make an impact with me. All the older male characters looked alike and little detail was paid attention to them.
The Diclonius of Elfen Lied
Elfen Lied is a great manga and has a great plot. Even though there are girls naked half the time, it isn't a bad manga. It is definitely violent and sexual though so beware. Elfen Lied will be a classic like Tenchi Muyo, Ah! My Goddess, and many others.
