Some Information Obtained: The story involves human mutations called "Diclonius", who grow horns on their heads and possess telekinetic powers, in the form of invisible "arms" called vectors.
The tendency for violence among Diclonii varies among characters. Certain scientists contain them in a Facility in cells, where they are subject to inhumane experiments to test their abilities or where they await execution for being too dangerous.
An infectious virus is also associated with the mutation. This virus is spread through non-lethal contact with the vectors of a diclonius.
The main non-mutant character in the story is Kouta, who ends up becoming increasingly involved with these dicloniuses, as they seek refuge from the scientists.
The main diclonius character is Lucy/Nyuu, a killer whose alter ego is a hapless and very cute child whose vocabulary and intelligence are quite limited.
After a large amount of choice occurrences, the lives of these two characters become inexplicably intertwined.

Isn't as great as expected, it never really digged into me... i find myself constantly wondering off while reading; however, the art is great and some part is interesting
cute as a button. deadly as a bazooka.
just wow. the manga goes deeper than the anime did. and i loved the anime. bit of a surprise with the nudity, but great nonetheless.
this is a great manga which i say which is better to the anime since more characters and a lot more ecchi scenes hehe..
but i recommend this i just cant see how others hate this..
Best thing ever...
Rate the manga, not your love of the anime.
Gore and nudity is rampant, so a mature audience is highly recommended.
Honestly, the art isnít very good, but it is cute. Even though I said gore and nudity is rampant, the depictions of these things are poor. The action sequences are not detailed or convincing, and the nudity and adult situations are awkward. Some feel the cutesy artistic style renders the mature subjects ridiculous, while others find the juxtaposition unique and potent.
The story starts out very interesting but deteriorates pretty quickly. The "dicloniuses" concept sets up a mystery and central aspect to the story but is simply left as a backdrop later on. The fast paced beginnings lead to an attempt at studying emotions under extreme duress, so if youíve developed a connection to the character by volume 3, youíre most likely still reading the manga. If you donít have the connection, youíre probably sick and tired of all the blush faces and word/action less panels.
Iím personally annoyed by the characters at this point (Vol. 6). The author never set up enough depth for me to care about the characters for yet another round of character twists resulting in emotional trauma and self discovery. I have no idea where the story is heading anymore, and Iím worried it will drown in a puddle of its own self pity and lost plot line. It may be time to abandon ship.
I thought it was GREAT! The plot was unique, the gore was good...I JUST LOVE IT. The reason why i didn't give it 10 out of 10 is because....dont kill me....the art was as good as some others ive seen...some was kinda rushed...but i bet i cant do as good as Okamoto Lynn! =D Im only up to like...chap 47...i cant find 47 onwards!!! but o well...
Evening Things Out
First off, let me say that i luv the anime, AND the series. Now, second off, im posting this rating for 2 reasons, 1, i luv the manga, and 2, to even out those bakas who read only a bit of it then gave it a crappy rating without trying the entire series out -.-
One of the best...
The anime is by far one of the best series out there, no matter its short length. The manga may not be as artistic, but it gives further insight to the story, and continues where it left off (or, it will at ch.61). A must read for any fan of the series, great plot, and character interactions between Lucy and Kota are great! Overall, it has everything: Keeps interest (plot), Romance, Ecchi, Comedy, SciFi/Action/Drama, Gore. Just...amazing
I got bored of the plotline, there no interesting plotlines, just some gore and even that gets old.
Well, its kinda weird... you shouldent comment a manga too much on art but on the main story and development.. if you think the manga is bad because the anime is better, then you my friend still has a long way to go... the manga is great, theres a little more story involved which is nice, overall i want to take some points from the art, even though its not important its still an important factor.
