What do "normal" people think when they see an anime series like Elfen Lied?

    I'd guess that they'd say "it's just exploding bodies and a naked girl", which isn't really true if they watched the entire series (only 13 episodes sadly).

    "Huh, that's weird. The Japanese make some strange cartoons."

    Then they move on and forget about it.

    I suppose it depends up much you read into the quote marks but the title did say normal. How many of such people have you met that would not at very best call it Japanese cartoons?
