Unknown to her, Kurama had located Lucy and is ascending the tower while she is descending to make the phone call for Kōta's aid. Because of the blow to the head she had suffered, she temporarily and developed a childlike and ignorant personality, only able to make the sound Nyu, which prompted the two to call her Nyu. Then I will make you a place to live in. As she matured, Kaede's began to develop, though she had little understanding of what this meant at the time.
She even thought about killing Kōta until he showed her kindness, and even after the massacre, she didn't show any remorse for killing those who harassed her. On top of that, the female characters all seem to be looking for any excuse to start stripping. In the final chapter, Mayu is seen cleaning the beach where Bandō had come to live in his memory when Bando returns to see Mayu, where it is shown that his lower half of his body has been fitted with bionics. The note concluded with her signing her name, Kaede, and Kōta broke down in tears as he finally got to meet and understand the friend he could never have. Nyū now traveled to class with them again, this time able to keep from drawing attention to herself. Mayu ran away from home, and upon arriving at the beach, she befriended Wanta, who was also alone.
It is also revealed that Kurama's wife died of complications from the birth only because she frantically tried to stop Kurama from strangling Mariko in her cradle, and that after watching his wife die in his arms, Kurama decided to honour his wife's last wish by letting Mariko live. In the anime, Arakawa is a minor character whose role provides little or no contribution at all for advancing the plot, as later she's often seen complaining that being so busy does not allow her to take a shower, which becomes a recurrent gag in the series. This revelation was the same information Anna had been unable to provide for fear of breaking his dreams. Although her vectors are superior to Lucy's in terms of range 5 meters to Lucy's 2, 16 ft to 7 ft and certain abilities, she lacks Lucy's sheer strength and violent nature; Nana's empathy for others does not allow her to fight with as primal vigor to kill.
Her threat or intent to kill Yuka proved enough to shake Kōta from his grieving stupor and show a horrified young Lucy that she had done wrong by him. However, these moments of happiness were not enough to stop her following her newfound instincts and slaughtering entire families to use their houses for the night. However, Lucy made a brief attempt to reform herself by helping Aiko, as the thought came that helping Aiko reunite with her mother would prove the person she had become wasn't just a murderer. Lucy made short work of Anna while spotting something that seemed to confirm Kakuzawa's earlier claims of not being a cruel parent. Mariko, who had forgiven her father and who had recovered both her powers and state of mind she had been in a mental state like Nyu's now challenged Lucy.
Shortly after this, she began to hear a voice in her head telling her to forget about coexisting with humans and offering her the chance to remake the world to her liking. The series reveals nothing about the background of Lucy's parents. In the letter, she expressed her gratitude toward him for giving her such a beautiful day in her life, as well as her desire to wear the jade stone as a wedding ring. It how or when Lucy and the other children learned of the story of her abandonment, but it seemed common knowledge at the site. If people get hit, their clothing magically rips off their bodies; if a person falls over, you can bet the scene will feature the best angle for a pantyshot. At first, Mariko's greater raw power ruled the day, battering Nana mercilessly.
Throughout her short life, Lucy believed that both parents had abandoned her, leaving her naked in a field to die of exposure as an infant. Given her view of humanity, it was most likely the latter. Sighting helicopter gun and transport ships outside the house, Nyū gives way to Lucy herself, who destroys the ships to a one, raining debris down on the retreating Nousou, killing another of the clones Alicia who is defending him. As she was about to leave the island, she was taken out by a sniper which knocked her out. She hated both her parents for a long time because they abandoned her, but during her last meeting with , she wanted to meet her or at least learn of her fate after being told the woman had wanted to find her all along and that it was her father who threw her away.
Kōta being shot, Kakuzawa telling her he would use her body for his goals. The last straw for Kōta was the sight of little Wanta kicked away by one of the steel-booted soldiers. Incredibly, even after the anime had conditioned me to anticipate fanservice at every turn, they still managed to somehow surprise me with it. Whether her motives or beliefs were clear or muddled, she offered up an apology for murdering Kōta's family, hoping it would be enough. A series modeled, in many ways, after the tragedies of Shakespeare and Ancient Greece, Elfen Lied is not something that you want to enjoy a sunny day with. The Lucy they faced here was easily at her most sadistic and cruel.
As she left Maple House, Lucy heard Kōta plainly say that his memories of how his family died had returned, this while glaring at her. . She would then use the crowds that gathered around the fallen to infect males with the Diclonius birth. Yet both Nana and Barbara suffered cruelly at the Institute, and the validity of these instances is in question. They take her deep into the island to retrieve the vaccine.
