1. A liquid crystal display device of active matrix type, comprising:

  • a liquid crystal layer;

    pixel electrodes;

    a common electrode; and

    storage capacitor lines, whereinthe liquid crystal layer is located between the pixel electrodes and the common electrode,each of the pixel electrodes includes either a single regional electrode or two or more regional electrodes which are electrically connected to each other, each of the regional electrodes being provided with;

    a first electrode which has a pattern dividing a first region where the regional electrode is formed into a plurality of second regions; and

    a plurality of stripe electrodes which are provided in each of the plurality of second regions so as to extend from the first electrode and so as to be separated from each other by a distance,each of the storage capacitor lines is provided facing one of the pixel electrodes in a film thickness direction, so as not to extend facing an edge of the first region in the film thickness direction parallelly to the edge, the storage capacitor line being allocated to that pixel electrode to form a storage capacitor,each of the regional electrodes is provided with a second electrode forming an entire periphery of the first region, andthe first electrode and the plurality of stripe electrodes of each of the regional electrodes are connected to the second electrode in the periphery.
