I just finished watching Elfen Lied. It's a particularly nasty piece of trash that I didn't much care for. It started off interestingly enough, but the childish way in which innocence and evil were handled quickly robbed me of any good will I had toward this movie. The amount of blood and gore was not offensive in itself, but given that the makers never grew tired of decapitating and disemboweling characters without cause or statement is pretty pathetic. They tried way too hard to be edgy with the child nudity, pedophilia, and beating to death of small animals. Instead, they came off as perverted and immature.
