Or are some cuts so profound that the passing of the years only makes them deeper? No one knows better than Lucy the horn-headed outcast, forced to kill by genetics and circumstance and Nana, Lucy's victim dismembered and left to die, who's made a long journey on artificial limbs to extract her revenge. But although Lucy/Nyu's dark past doesn't excuse her staggering body count, it does explain it. In volume three, the pieces of her mysterious puzzle begin to fall into place and shed light on her murderous ways, as well as a narrow window into the memories Kohta has so carefully blocked. But will Nana's desire for vengeance outstrip Nyu's efforts to remember her past? Will the mayhem overtake Kohta and Yuka's attempts to make a loving home on a foundation of painful memories? The answers don't come easy in the world of Elfen Lied.
