A few weeks ago, Australian anime publisher Madman Entertainment announced they would be releasing a number of titles from their backcatalogue onto the AnimeLab service in coming weeks. One of these is the thirteen episode, 2004 TV anime, Elfen Lied. Elfen Lied is an anime well known for its violent and sometimes gorish content. However, it also focuses on a number of other issues including different perspectives of what is evil, alienation of those who are different, neglect of basic human rights and more.
Fittingly given how close we are to Halloween, Madman Entertainment have confirmed that all thirteen episodes are now available via AnimeLab with both English and Japanese dubbing. You can watch these episodes HERE, although be aware that some things like English dubbing and high-definition videos are only available to Premium Subscribers.
Feel like owning a physical copy of Elfen Lied instead of watching the episodes online? You can purchase a DVD “Fatpack” set of the show via Madman Entertainment’s online store for $59.95. While it is an older title, you may also find copies via your local anime retailer.

Now lost, alone, and stricken with amnesia, she wanders into a kindly family that takes her under their care, oblivious to the latent destructive power that this innocent-looking girl harbors!
