Elfen Lied Vol. 1 - Lynn Okamoto I've read only first volume but I've seen all anime episodes. The manga starts the same as the anime but then goes in a completely different direction. (Just like [b:Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1|870|Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1 (Fullmetal Alchemist, #1)|Hiromu Arakawa|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1348985908s/870.jpg|1959820] )The story is brutal and heartbreaking, full of violence and innocence. The anime has very beautiful song Lilium. Here is my favourite version of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_SChDmSedM
