And I still haven't seen it, so I can't say anything on it really.

I read some of the manga and it's just too gruesome for me. I sort of see the appeal, but I could have used a few smiles. But no, I get cruel just for the sake of being cruel (probably more than that, but it's not worth watching the series to see).

I wouldn't categorize it as horror. I don't recall any part of it being particularly scary. It's more an action show with some light comedy and then everyone is raped and/or disembowled.

i don't think not liking incest and utterly copious amounts of gore means that i don't have a taste in anime.
i saw the first 5 eps of elfen lied. couldn't get passed that.

Oh, so THAT one, eh? I have a feeling that that scene is what alot of people know Elfen Lied for, like the dog **beast** scene from Pink Flamingos. A pattern of dogs, so to speak

Elfen Lied was a good concept that had a fixation with gore on the same level of a freaking snuff film.
Still better than the crap Adult Swim pumps out on their animu block, but not I show I could recommend as great.

I have no interest in EL. Don't know if it's bad, I just don't like that kind of thing.
