@takashichea: Your best bet at getting it is either pirating or importing it from an Australian online store if you have a region-free DVD player on you. Higurashi's first season has been long out of print and US sellers are gouging the hell out of its price.
@KingOfAsh: I found Elfen Lied tolerable with what it had to offer with its plot. Only issues I had were its unnecessary attempts to set up Kouta's living situation as an unwanted harem, bits where its gory violence and sexual content were unnecessary and the lack of proper ending. It's not a masterpiece by a stretch, but it's better than much of what I've seen for Ani-Crap. Hell, I'd see it over Gantz and Future Diary any day.
