Overall,I mean I really like both,and both of those anime were thriller anime(s) to me and kept me on feet while I was watching them..although in Elfen Lied was of extremely sad and had some really episodes..and even some scenes itself (in Elfen Lied),got to me! and HSOTD was certainly full of interesting things..some parts I'll admit I had to close my eyes on..and it's ending was really sad to me..,I mean I could go either way..but I prefer Elfen Lied!
Elfen Lied for sure! Diclonius way better then stupid zombies. no offence to anyone who is obsessed with zombie related stuff. (if this picture is too explicit...which i don't think it is, please tell me and i well take it off)
neither of them are my favoriete anime of anything but i like elfen lied better.. i think hotd has too much fan service (im not into all of that stuff with girls who have skirts that toon off half of the ezel and their cleavage falling out of their shirts..)
well some of the things that are the same are that they both have blood * witch i love * plus i think that Elfen Lied has meer of a life story u know with a split-personality and the other thing is with zombies * newbi-ness * what is that all about ???????? so i pick Elfen Lied !
