Arms Corporation made the anime series Elfen Lied. It was based on Lynn Okamoto’s seinen manga series and came out while the manga was still being published. Elfen Lied is one of the most violent anime shows ever made, but it has a great legacy and has even influenced some of the most popular anime shows of the past few years. The end of the series was also a cliffhanger.
The anime is based on the source material for the first seven volumes, but the story is changed a few times and has a different ending. But since then, Elfen Lied fans have been asking for Season 2. Here’s what we know.
What is Elfen Lied About?
Lucy is a special kind of human called a “Diclonius.” She was born with a short pair of horns and the ability to move her hands without touching them. Because of this, the government uses her for cruel scientific experiments.
But when circumstances give her a chance to get away, Lucy, who has been locked up and tortured, kills a lot of people as she runs away from her captors.
During her escape, she gets a serious head injury that leaves her with two different personalities. One has the mind of a harmless child and can’t talk much. In this state of chaos, she runs into two college students, Kouta and his cousin Yuka.
They take care of an injured fugitive, not knowing that she has a tendency to kill. This kind of act will change their lives, as they will soon be pulled into the dark world of government secrets and conspiracies.
Will there be a Season 2 of “Elfen Lied”?
Even though it’s been 18 years, Arms Corporation still hasn’t renewed the anime show for a second season. Even though the anime hasn’t been officially cancelled, we have to wait so long to find out what will happen.
The anime was made in a great way by Arms Corporation. It’s too bad that they didn’t start making the next season right away.
Why Is ‘Elfen Lied’ Season 2 Still Not Confirmed?
The studio that made the anime filed for bankruptcy on July 22, 2020, which could be one reason why it isn’t being brought back. The studio closed on August 4, 2020, one month later. At first, Arms Corporation was called Dandelion. The name was later changed to Triple X. But since they filed for bankruptcy, they are no longer in business. The only way for “Elfen Lied” to come back is for another studio, like Netflix, to pick it up.
The lack of source material is another reason why the anime might not be kept going. The last chapter of the manga, which the show is based on, came out in August 2005. We know that anime shows are often made to boost sales of the manga they are based on. If there are no more manga to sell, there might not be much interest in anime.
What is the Expected Plot of Elfen Lied Season 2?
The story is mostly about a new species that has changed because of a disease. Most of the time, they look like humans, but there are one or two differences. There are two horns on the top of the head and invisible telekinetic hands called “vectors.”
One of these creatures, named Lucy, is kept as a test subject and has to go through a lot of torture under the guise of tests. But one day, she finds a way out and starts killing people in the lab, which is near the town of Kamakura. In the end, she leaves the lab, but a sniper rifle shot her and hurt her.
So, she ends up taking on a second personality of a child. Kouta and Yuka, who are cousins, find her later and take her into their homes. Soon, they will both be caught up in the charade that the Special Assault Team will make up to try to catch her.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Anime Elfen Lied Over?
The anime ended before the manga did, with only thirteen episodes. The manga, on the other hand, has twelve volumes, which means that the anime only used the first few parts of the Elfen Lied story, cutting out huge chunks along the way and making up its own, unsatisfying ending.
What’s Lucy Elfen’s age?
She is thought to be fifteen, but it has never been said for sure (eighteen in the anime). Lucy’s vectors only work about two metres away from her (6.56168 ft).
Is Lucy the First Diclonius?
Even though Lucy was the first and so-called “Queen” Diclonius, the virus in her children came from her late mother.
