''Elfen Lied'', written by Creator/LynnOkamoto, is a ''{{gorn}}ographic'' {{manga}}, which has been likened to a [[XMeetsY combination]] of ''Comicbook/XMen'', ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'', ''[[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde]]'', ''Manga/LoveHina'', and ''Manga/{{Monster}}''. In other words, it's a twisted mixture of mutant battles, PsychicPowers, split personalities, pseudo-harem antics, cute girls, the male lead who discovers that the person whom he interacted during that person's childhood is evil, and of course, bucketloads of {{Gorn}} - and it's more than happy to [[MoodWhiplash swing between comedy and horror at the drop of a hat]]. It has also been compared to ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' [[XMeetsY as done by]] DavidLynch and Creator/WesCraven. There is also a short {{anime}} series of the same name that follows the first couple of chapters but ends with [[GeckoEnding an alternative ending]] before the real plot kicks off.

* OffModel: The art in the first manga volume is a little dodgy, especially concerning Lucy's legs and several male faces. [[ItGetsBetter It noticeably improved,]] although it's not without some hiccups that carry over into ''Manga/{{Nononono}}''.
