‘Elfen Lied’ is one of the most controversial and violent anime programmes ever produced, yet it has left a lasting impact and has even influenced current blockbuster shows.
Lucy, a newly mutant species known as Diclonius, has escaped the facility established for testing in the series. Lucy was hurt while creating mayhem outside. As a result, she adopted a childish demeanour.
‘Elfen Lied’ is based on Lynn Okamoto’s Japanese manga series, which she wrote and drew.
The series came to an abrupt conclusion with a cliffhanger. However, more than a decade and a half has passed, and we still haven’t heard anything about season 2. So, what are the chances of seeing Season 2 of ‘Elfen Lied’?
This is all we know thus far.
Will There Be ‘Elfen Lied’ Season 2?
The company Arms Corporation has an interesting anime series. They did a great job with the production. I am upset they haven’t made a follow up season yet though. It is a shame that Arms Corporation hasn’t made a follow up series yet.
Why Is ‘Elfen Lied’ Season 2 Still Not Confirmed?
One of the probable reasons for the anime’s cancellation is that the anime’s studio filed for bankruptcy on July 22, 2020. The next month, on August 4, 2020, the studio closed. Dandelion was the original name of Arms Corporation. The name was eventually changed to Triple X. They are, however, no longer in operation as a result of the bankruptcy.
The only way for ‘Elfen Lied’ to resurface is for another studio to pick it up.
Another reason for the anime’s cancellation is a lack of source material. The serialisation of the manga on which the programme is based ended in August 2005. We all know that anime series are frequently developed in order to increase manga sales. With no more comics to sell, there’s a chance that interest in an anime may dwindle.
What Do Anime Lovers Think Of ‘Elfen Lied’?
The anime series had a mixed response from anime fans. It sparked numerous debates due to its narrative and the fact that it contains frightening images that are not for the faint of heart.
Critics, on the other hand, gave it excellent reviews. The plot and technical distinction in production quality, animation, and colour were complimented by Anime News Network.
‘Stranger Things,’ a Netflix blockbuster series, was inspired by ‘Elfen Lied.’
“I recently watched an anime called Elfen Lied, which is definitely influenced by Akira. And that had a significant impact. When I first saw it, it reminded me of an ultraviolent E.T. There were a lot of elements in there that I loved and that made it into the show, especially in relation to Eleven’s character “In an interview, creator Matt Duffer stated.
Although it’s disappointing to think that ‘Elfen Lied’ may no longer be on the air, the anime series’ history is something to be proud of.
