Everytime I read a chapter of this manga I either want to cry out in fear or vomit because of the cruelness. So here's my question, is it going to be worth it to read this to the end or not?

I have been reading it since vol 1 and have read up to the latest chap to be released. It is definitely not for everyone. I like it even though at some points it is really depressing. Very violent as you already know and it only gets worse. For me I have read so much that I feel it is worth it to read to the end. From the sounds of it I would probably suggest to you to not read it to the end and just stop.

True, Elfin Lied is not a series for someone who can't deal with immense amounts of graphic violence.

Yes, the cruelness is horrible. And it only gets worse. But, if you can stomach it, its worth the read.

it's not bad. I think it's just a manga for those that like yuri manga. I mean, it's not gory or horrible. You don't know cruelness until you read Berserk or any of MATSUMOTO Jiro's work. Keep on Vibrating for example.

I think the cruelty in Elfen Lied is more than in Berserk.

I mean, torturing a six year old, WTF!?

Are you sure you read Berserk?

The following contains spoilers and descriptions of Berserk scenes that are horrible.

yeah......remember that part when
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the children turn into wasps and sting each other until their guts come out. How about the part when they fed pregnant women to the alligators or the part the pig trolls raped the women and later on the women were eaten from the inside out by those baby trolls inside their womb?

Still think Elfen Lied is more cruel. The cruelty in Berserk isnt really that bad cuz most of it happens to really minor characters. I mean, once you get to know the characters in Elfen Lied, of course its gonna be harder to watch them get tortured and raped and mutilated.

Gats gets raped when he was like 10 and Griff gets all his muscle and skin removed. Then they cut off his tongue and possibly his male organs. Gats's gf gets raped and then she had baby that's not human. It was a puddle of mutilated flesh of evil.

Griffith and Guts are guys, so I dont really give a crap about whether they get tortured or raped. And for some reason that Caska rape scene wasnt too hard to watch. Probly cuz she's a tough chick and I knew she'd get over it. Boy was I wrong...

I treat guys and girls equally you know..........you are just sexist cause you are a pervert. Ask a large majority of people, they would say Berserk is more gory.

I go with xombie, although that Caska rape seen was a pain for me, If a guy gets raped in a manga I dont give a damn, Elfen lied is far more (okay, not far slightly more) gruesome
