note: the video does contain a tiny bit of nudity, but i consider it art if this is a problem than could a mod remove the video?

There was just a thread here about EL. I still refer to my old comment: "That show is nothing but nekkid violence!" [said by a person who's actually watched it]

Oh yeah, I do love the theme, Lilium. Probably just because it's in Latin.

It looks to me like a naked girl in some squiggles cuddling a blue man. Seems kind of crappy. :ton: Although it is terribly ignorant of me to say that when I've only seen that short clip. ;)

I cleared this to be posted yesterday Kam, after watching it a few times to be sure it could be posted and discussed here maturely. :wve:

i think the opening is the only soft side to the show. you kinda get something completely different when you watch the episodes lol.

I find it very beautifull! :tmb: The design apart from the anime characters is based on a Gustav Klimt painting called "The Kiss". The neo-renaissance-esque music fits very well. Interesting combo, i like the style! :)

Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on which way you want to look at it) my first impression has meant that I don't plan on watching the show.

I've watched a bit of it and thought it was quite fascinating. An acquired taste though - to me, bucketloads of blood just seems wrong in a cartoon, lol.

I'd say the best anime series ever made... till Ergo Proxy came out, that is :tmb: Actually yeah, most of the public make a huge accent on the blood content in EL while expressing the very first impression... even though it tries to show something else (and pretty successfully imo). Definitely NOT for non-mature minds.

*watches Tona-gura!* :D

>.> To much nudity for me... It's like there dying to draw naked people over there in japan xD

Personally i would rather go with an anime like Arjuna :tmb:

You do know there are people who will hang you for calling anime 'a cartoon'? :D

Have to admit. Not a serious fan though but I watch them when I get the change. :)

Huh. You learn something new every day.

Then again I guess it's a very small step from playing FF to watching anime.

LOL! Well it's animated, so in my book that falls under the broad category of 'cartoon'. :p

I did...but I didn´t get it either :p The only thing I got to understand (and I´m not sure since it´s a very shallow idea) is that: Nyu returned as Nyu, not Lucy. And somehow, her appearance fixed the clock she was also trying to repair when she was Nyu. So the correct work of the clock might be a hint of Nyu´s (not Lucy´s) return. Though, it´s quite a silly theory. I could not get anything else.

As far as I remember she (Nyu) did survive as she was standing behind gate entry, tho we can only see her shadow. (and that clock started to work again hmmm :pi: )

didn't lucy have two sides. her and nyu? isn't it the horns that kept lucy alive? i don't know i always thought that lucy died but than i remember at the end lucy reached for something with her vectors..... i think the horns are what kept lucy alive and when she lost it. nyu returned. i guess it's the same thing you said, but it does make sense lol.

No not the horns (she was geneticly a Diclonious..... I'm sure I wrote it wrongly eh) ...she was just emotionaly hiding (as Nyu) from what she really was, two sides. I think it's just that she wouldn't have to wear caps any more so she could be like a human XD ..or maybe she lost her powers (vectors) together with horns hmm.

It's hard to say that something with bucket-loads of blood is made by mature minds, let alone for them.

>.> To much nudity for me... It's like there dying to draw naked people over there in japan xD

Exactly. They can call it what they like, it's still pretty unnecessary.

It's a cartoon. Live with it. :ton: (Comment aimed at those who would hang one for calling anime a cartoon :ton:)

Er.. "creative" mature minds :whi: I personally don't like anything with too gore content (or at all), imo it was just the right indgredient for that specific anime to tell/show the whole story sucessfully.
