Question

Ok, I bet this was asked probably about 20 times so far on this board but what exactly is Lain about? All I hear from my friends who've seen this series sy it very strange but also one of the best animes out there.

If you would be so kind that if you respond...try not to mention any spoilers. Im thinking of purchasing the DVD's but not to sure yet.

Super-condensed version:

We're all connected...
There is the world around us, a world of people, tactile sensation and culture. There is the wired world, inside the computer, of images, personalities, virtual experiences and a culture all of its own. The day after a classmate commits suicide, lain, a thirteen-year-old girl, discovers how closely the two worlds are linked when she receives an email from the dead girl: "I just abandoned my body. I still live here..." Has the line between the real world and the wired world begun to blur?


“KNIGHTS” – a super hacker group that has large effects in the wired. No one knows who the members are, but they control information and sometimes develop and distribute illegal information equipment. The KNIGHTS are trying to make Lain do something.... When Lain metamorphosizes her physical self into the wired to search for an answer to incidents of kids committing suicide, she finds that the KNIGHTS are behind these incidents. One day, a group of men in black suits contact Lain. They ask, “Are those people who you live with really your parents?” “Are you Lain of the wired?” and ‘Who are you really?”

Didn't tell you a lot? Good. The series is very difficult to put into words. Just watch it. If you like a thick, meaty story with awesome animation, you'll like Lain.

Make sure you have a box of aspirin after watching Lain, man. It is far more dangerous than drugs.

I always thought of Lain as one of those anime that is about everything(like Evangelion ,Akira,and Ghost in the Shell).It has to do a lot with the human thoughts and ego.It also has many theories about what mankind was and what will become of it.

Lain is about joy,love,sorrow,depression,happiness,discovering,thinki ng; It's about being alive(which is an important topic).


see you space cowboys
