2. Elfen Lied
The name comes from the German “Elves‘ Song”. Diclonius is a more evolved species that closely resembles humans. It is said that Diclonius would eventually become the destroyer of the human race. It has two horns and a “sixth sense”, which gives it telekinetic abilities. Because they are dangerous, they are kept in captivity in laboratories. Lucy is a young and psychotic Diclonius.
She manages to break free and brutally murder most of the guards in the laboratory, only to be shot in the head as she escapes. Wounded, she makes her way to a beach where two teenagers find her. Lucy has lost her memory and is barely able to speak, speaking only the word “New”. This makes their name and their personality becomes like a child. The teenagers, Kouta and Yuka, take her home, but the government is chasing Lucy. See this review for more information.
