AND YOU DON'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND
a shame you seemed an honest man
No i didn't
But what about all the fears I hold so dear?
Those lyrics and caps lock do not mix.
they intro made me cringe so fucking hard
pretty much any english in chink shows is shit
Did everyone just come from that Top 10 Anime Intros video on IGN? This is too big a coincidence.
What are you smoking? Lain's OP is one of the genuinely good English sung OPs.
I was talking about the 'present day'
I did like the music and into animation
Why did they never include all the music from cyberia? I still hate that they didn't include the track with the chanting in the OST.
Whò i͞s̢ t͞he͟ ̧real m̢e̴?
You do know why it says that, right?
It's iconic though. No one with good taste would dislike it.
something to do with lains omnipotence?
It's the date
>Whò i͞s̢ t͞he͟ ̧real m̢e̴?
H-how d-did you do that..
Rub a magnet on your keyboard while you type.
>mfw the buzzing of the wires
I love that noise.
There's actually a spot near me under a fuckton of powerlines that makes that noise. Sometimes I like to just drive down there in the middle of the night and just lie on the roof of my car and listen to the noise it makes.
Am I the only one who prefers the acoustic version to the original OP?
Sometimes I do, depending on how I'm feeling.
Holy fuck this is fucking amazing, what album is this on anon, I need to download it right now.
Prefer the version featured in Lain, but that's great. Anyone who likes Duvet should check out bôa's album The Race of a Thousand Camel, which not only has Duvet but a bunch of other chill songs as well.
You could try google, man. I refuse to spoonfeed you because I love you, anon.
And then there's the 2005 album Get There that's also really good. In fact I like it better than Camel Racing
How pure is Lain?
Anyone actually look into the band's other stuff, though? I'd recommend it to /a/nons. Good for when you're low on energy and want to stay that way.
What about Twilight? Though that is just Camel Race+.
As pure as an Assembly program painfully written on a sleepless night.
Like I said, Lewd
Anyone mind telling me what the alien/Roswell incident stuff was all about?
I'd like know what the fuck was up with her sister having to "fulfill the prophecy."
Happy thought fuel
this shit makes me rage everytime
Is this shit any good?
Or all the people saying that it is 2deep4me were just kids when they watched it?
why is this telling me to smoke weed everyday?
why don't you watch it, faggot?
and learn to speak English
Lain is the evangelion of anime.
well it abandonnes narrative and references marcel proust, so yeah compared to most /a/ material it's 2deep4u.
I'd recommend it very very highly though.
It was 2deep for me the first 2 times, 3 time I got it and realised why people say it's 10/10 show It's in my 3x3 now.
I watched it a year ago. And watched after a month. Definitely worth watching.
Those who say who understood it, care to elaborate? I really liked it, but I don't think I actually grasped it.
My friend had got me to watch it recently. I wish I had seen it sooner.
it's been a loooooooooooong time, I think I was 13 when I watched it. But I think in the end lain was a god, and an instrumentality-esque event happened but only for her? her conciousness and her alter ego from the wired (and maybe the wired itself) leaked into real life and fucked things up in ways she could not control, still being a god from her conciousness linking with the unverse, even if she is fractured, she just resets everything.
and it's a meta-commentary on how our interaction with the internet effects us and changes both the worlds perception of us and our interaction with it.
>haven't been on /a/ in years
>first thread i see is a lain thread
guess ill dust off the folder
That was a good read.
yea i forgot about it until now
Where does this come from?
I don't recall it but it was some time ago I saw Lain
>me in charge of selecting correct file
I still can't figure out if Lain is really insane (schizophrenia, paranoia, god delusions, etc.) or not.
Then again, you'd have to not take everything the show presents at face value and assume a good chunk of the show is told straight from how Lain would perceive it.
I own a fucking guide thing of it despite not reading japanese I'm so hyped
if you're referring to the comic it comes from a dvd specialbox or something like that, it's written by the series's artist.
the game iirc
she's at the very least mentally unstable.
wtf is this shit
A lot of languages have accents on them. In order to allow them to be typed, you're able to layer text over existing text.
I bought something about lain at akiba last christmas, some kind of book, was under plastic and I thought it was artworks but it's full of moonrunes and no drawings.
It's something about story data or some shit, I have no idea what's writen. Could scan some pages if any moonspeak people are interested.
Well she definitely has multiple personalities.
how do you register? can you even login? what the fuck is that
Brilliant opening, cool premise, terrible resolution.
You can't. At least not as Lain, as her computer had a voice-recognition password.
annoyed there's no definite narrative conclusions?
are you the guy that says EVA's ending sucked?
Not the same guy but Eva's ending did suck. Lain was good.
Mind explaining why?
does this image exist in higher res? been looking for one but the usual image research things don't help much.

It's been like over a frigging decade since I watched it, but I remember everything being fine up until the last episode, where nothing made sense.
EVA's entire last arc was a complete disaster.
sorry not sure
wow thankyou so much
I love you so much
is the game any good?
also thanks a zillion
amazing thank you
I... I opened two tabs of that by mistake, and they managed to get sort of synced with each other, and I think I'm getting my brain fucked right now.
the game is a virus.
really? last time i downloaded it from emuparadise it was ok
ill take your word for it
Is it a good virus?
People don't know exactly what it does.
Some reported that it will sometimes say silently "good to sleep" and other weird (or should I say wired) stuff.
*go to sleep
jesus christ I'm not multitasking capable.
Original ending to EVA was great in terms of character conclusion.
But plot-wise,nothing was resolved.
its say disk 1, there's a disk 2???
You talking about the fangame right?
please report back, brave anon
Read the thread a little bit. Avoided spoilers.
I like the ideal and style.
Downloading it now.
>not watching lain on laserdisc
any news from brave anon who ventured into the wire for us
it's 221 mb and at a slow rate, the guy later clarified his statements saying they were about a fangame or something.
I think you're fine
I've found a torrent,but the OP and ED are cut.
I heard they're great. Do they add to the general feel of the series?
Are you talking about the fangame or the ps1 game?
The ps1 game is pretty good, only basic knowledge of moon needed to understand it.
The download's right in the thread bro, they very much do, unskippable to me.
These are likely numbered eps, you need to watch them in mpc
I was talking about the official game, what on earth's this fangame?
....someone else is retaking my comment as their own.
This feels slightly lainy, maybe he IS me????
The fangame comes from>>100895299
The original game is about listening to audiologs and watching animated sequences while lain freaks you out at times, kinda like what the Wired would be.
>BoA Single - OP Theme
and you dont seem to understaaaand
you don't understand
nobody understands ;_;
god the fangame is creepy as fuck. I managed to get to level 2, then got out of the computer and now i'm stuck in my room, no idea what to do. Was i not meant to get out of the computer? should I have stayed in the wire? this is scary
does this feel constricting?
i tried playing it for 10 seconds and gave up, 2scary5me
Ok i tried playing the second scenario, Cyberia, it's as creepy as the first one. I can't help but imagine the fucking roosevelt shit poping out of nowhere.
20 seconds in some huge black room appeared at the end of one of the corridors, reminded me of House Of leaves and I alt+f4'd
I sort of want to play this game, but I know I won't get anywhere because I scare easily.
I'd like to see what it's like though. Sounds pretty interesting.
Does Lain get much better in the second half? I've seen the first half, then dropped it because it was 2deep4me and I had no idea what the fuck was going on
I found myself in a massive dark area and I couldn't take it anymore. God damn does this game make me feel paranoid. Are those even my footsteps?
yea shit actually gets explained if i remember, its been a while
where do you even get the game
How does it go after that? My feeling tells me "come back to bite you in your rear" but logic tells me that's not how the lyrics go
that's where i stoped for the second time.
The first time i FELL into a dark hole, which led to an entire new layout with darker grey corridors. After about 3 minuts of exploration I found a ramp going up, with very bright light, I obviously followed the light and when i reached it it took me out of a computer, I found myself stuck in a room.
So i restarted and this time I appeared in that massive dark room, and alt f4 instantly. The music is so creepy.
And all the fears you hold so dear
Will turn to whisper in your ear
or directly here
is first scenario, then Cyberia is the second scenario, both creepy as fuck. Didn't get far into either.
Let's just hope PewDiePie never finds out about the Lain game.
Will send it to his facebook page right now.
Thanks for the idea.
this faggot's still on youtube?
>tfw his channel used to be pretty decent when he was below 1 million subs
>tfw the more subs he gets the more brain cells he loses
Yes,he has 20 mil subs.
I only liked his TWD playthrough. He was even funny at time..But everything after that was pure cancer.
I swear m gunna kill you if you do it.
house of leaves isn't even scary, it's form is too apparent for real immersion.
not in the way he wants
He’s even the most subscribed channel on whole youtube or some shit like that. What has this world come to.
He's retarded but also a nice guy actually, he donante most of his earnings to charity.
Yes, goy. Give me your money I will use it to help the poor children in Isra...I mean africa.
It isn't scary but it's a good read.
To be fair I read it durring vacation in a 5 day period where i'd take mdma or shrooms or get drunk every night. Eventually something bad happened on shrooms and remembering house of leaves I had a bad trip about it, it pretty much brought back my childish fear of the dark or of very big and empty spaces. Can't remember everything about the bad trip but it was seriously horrible, I was convinced creatures could materialize themselves in the dark, or places you couldn't clearly see, and where specifically after ME. each time i blinked I imagined all of them appearing for a split second, so I tried to scotch my eyes to stop blinking and carried a torchlight with me for the duration of the bad trip. Friends tried to help but ultimately when things go wrong theres not much you can do.
Aaaand that's why i stoped doing drugs
reminds me of Alan Wake
ever notice the claw marks where truant picked up the manuscript?
how about the small tick in one pages corner, tying to where johnnies mother said his next letter sent would be ticked? Implying the whole thing has been cross-examined by his ma? How about the secret patterns in the lists of names? Or even the pun of the title? Or how it's printed pages are wider than the cover on some editions as well as printed on thin paper (bigger on the inside)?
It's a very fun book, and your scenario does indeed sound scary as hell, but to me it was always a funhouse.
>Or how it's printed pages are wider than the cover on some editions as well as printed on thin paper (bigger on the inside)?
yeah i had the colored edition, and noticed that instantly before even reading it, which messed with my OCD like crazy. Then about halfway in the book I suddenly realized it was done on purpose. Pretty ingenious.
But yeah, outside of my specific situation, I wouldn't really categorize it as a specifically scary or horror book, I still love it though. Was thinking of giving Only Revolutions a try (the other book of the same author) but kinda scared to be disappointed after House of Leaves.
>get to completely empty room full of nothing but blackness
>nope out at first, but pursue further
>static on the ceiling
>walking a little further into the darkness
>spotlight comes on where I'm standing
>hear children laughing
>try to walk around more
>teleported to my room
This game is amazing
forcing myself through Wired_64bit, I'm expecting something to happen but nothing does. I got out of the computer again, stuck in the room again. Still haven't found the big dark room since last time, can you actually finish the game? Will I ever actually need to "shoot", in the controls there are bindings for 3 different types of fire, implying i'll get weapons or something later.
no one likes that book, like at all, i havent read it but your almost certainly going to be dissapoint.
If you liked house of leaves try arno-schmidt for crazyfun experimental writing or david foster wallace for academic satire/puzzly literature.
So that's what was in the big dark room? have you found something to do in your room? I actually managed to get out of the Wire manualy, in the first layout of corridors I eventually found a tiny hole and let myself fall down, then followed a grey corridors until I climbed out of the computer by jumping into a white wall with static.
Where do I get Wired_64bit
Does it run through WINE or is there a Linux version
From what the guy says, there is an ending.
Thanks for the recommendation, was looking for something to read too actually. Will give these a go
did anyone else get out by walking up to the wall of green handprints?
LOOK IN THE BLITZLOOP DISCRIMINATE THROUGH SUCH A WAY
The website is from where the game comes from, you can download it in the DL section as "scenario 1". Or download the Wired file from the mediafire compilation post.
On the website you will notice Scenario 2 as well, it's another game called Cyberia, I've barely played it but it's pretty scary too.
As for the compatibility issues, i've got no clue,
Yea the first thing I found was the hole and I fell in to and got to my room via the light.
I didn't get a chance to explore the dark room that much. I'm going back in when I get done eating.
boku no ABe
FUCKING HELL I HAD TO TURN IT OFF WHEN SOMEONE WAS YELLING AT ME IN MOON IT'S 3:30 I NEED TO SLEEP
What? where is it? is it on the first level? So far the two ways i've found of getting out is the big dark room and falling into another layout and climbing up some kind of ramp until you find a wall of light. both lead in the room.
Is the room considered the ending? or is there more to that?
oh god fuck this never happened to me, where you at some specific place?
oh also http://www.theguardian.com/books/2011/nov/22/mark-z-danielewski-serial-novel-the-familiar
Right so I got to that hole again, but instead of falling into it i jumped over and kept exploring the first level, ended up in front of the blackroom twice but kept turning arround to see if theres not something else. Eventually some moonspeak but not a scream, like just someone talking, female voice. Found blackroom again, got fed up and tried to explore it but accidently bumpbed int othe wall of hands and got out of the computer.
No sound except this one, camera slowly going away and then the ending. Every episode.
Damn I love Lain.
What the actual fuck.
I'm on drugs listening to every BGM of this thing, at this point I feel I just headbutted a screwdriver.
This makes me uncomfortable. This whole site is pretty trippy.
I dont get why this anime drives people to make this weird stuff but ok
God damn this one is unsettling.
This one almost seems as a crazy cult-like thing... crazy music.
this one actually gives me feels
has anyone figured out if there is anything more than the room outside of the computer in Wired_64bit ?
In the controls there is stuff like aiming and firing, but I don't know if that's just some default shit or if it's actually used.
Has anyone figured out Cyberia as well? that hearbeat thing stops me from playing it properly for various reasons.
Guys, this one here
has some Cyrillic text, on an automatic translation is goes as Depression and anxiety. Is is correct or there's a hidden meaning lost in translation?
Please stop the mindfuck
Is there an actual way to register on this website and login?
it's in the ost. Just not the one you might think
Hints to login:pw are hidden across the crazy pages. Think notpron.
Yes, you just need to close the world, and open the next
>spent like the last 4 hours doing the following
>listening to all the bgms individually on the website
And now this is my new desktop. Send help.
WHY why Why wHY whY wHy WHY IS SHE COUNTING MAKE IT STOP SOMETHING BAD IS GONNA HAPPEN I KNOW IT
Red Herring as well as an excuse to lead into all the other stuff they talked about during the infodumps.
Also Lain read a bunch of creepypasta on the wired.
The knights were fucking with her. thery eventually mindfucked her
I was literally just watching the Lain opening before coming on /a/. This is weird. Lain... could it be you?
I seriously hope you guys
aren't trolling me because i'v already spent 4 hours on this shitty website, and now I wont quit until I find whatever this is about. Don't know about notpron. Can I get a different clue?
that made my whole room vibrate
Jesus man at least post high res. You're insulting aBe's work
And it's the flipped version, her sidetail is on the wrong side
but accented characters are available as their own unicode characters.
Those are garbage characters, which are as far as I can tell, useless
>Mio a shit xDD
Every fucking time I open that page.
I haven't even checked out the rest of the website, I've just been listening to the music and staring at Lain.
Roses are red
violets are blue
Mio a shit
Lain a cute
There is more then one song at the site?
How do you change it?
I said the notpron hint. I was joking. But you should seriously check out notpron for spooky puzzle stuff.
FUCK YOU i was actually trying to figure this shit out.
>You're insulting aBe's work
Fuck you, he's good at stills, but he's a shit animator.
>Hidden - Space - Connect - Column - Identity - Transparent
you onto something
I didn't even have it opened long enough to notice.
I think you misunderstand. The low resolution and reversed images are an insult to the good work ABe did on that comic
Is it ok to say I'm sorry?
But wow thats some organized thinking you got there, if there was something hidden you would get it.
Keep up doing God's work, son.
I don't know, I kinda don't want to give up. When you go through all the pages, you end up at the last one which is "culmination" as in the culmination point of all this, and then after that it takes you directly to... the login page.
As if you're meant to be able to login with the information this little trip gave you.
The page http://fauux.neocities.org/space.html
has >space.htlm but the page is called omnipresence, whereas almost all the other pages are called by the end of the url.
Which chapter is this? I can't remember that at all.
It's an edit anon.
Shit. For a moment I thought that there was actually someone in Japan who cares about Lain.
As much as I like http://fauux.neocities.org it's starting to annoy me how many Lain threads are starting to revolve around it.
It's been about 6 hours i'm on this website, first chilling with the bgms, then playing the creepy games and then trying to login and decrypting all this mess.
I need a break, i'm hungry, tired, I think i'm gonna go eat now. The wire will wait.
Would you program a Lain?
Better than an imagedump or a bunch of anons saying lewd things about Lain
How do you know you're not programmed by her?
Welcome home, anon!
2/10 too slow pacing and shit storytelling
You should medicate your ADD.
What's with these songs, anyway? Are they existing songs? I think I might need some of them... I've been listening to them all night.
How about discussing the plot?
I prefer it to shitposting about how pretentious the show is and such.
It's been discussed to death already.
Oh god, want. Want bad.
I'm assuming rare as fuck tho
I don't know if everything is a ruse, but there's definitely something hidden. I just noticed on the identity page the gif is named BearsuitDesu2.gif, if you go for the Nº1 you get a 404 but on the source code theres other images and some message in Norwegian.
You do realize that discussing the plot would be an unimaginable clusterfuck, right?
and you know what they say might hurt you and you know it means so much
I suppose so.
You get something like this
might be useless after all, you end up here writing whatever doesn't exist on the site as the src. the source code on the login page at the end doesn't link to anything as well, its not functional.
>stop spamming my site errytime
>theres a god damn SEL thread xDDDxDD
>jk I luv attenion kk ;DDD
Why does it seem like two different sets of sounds are playing on each side of my headphones?
Damn this show for giving me such an obsession with the fourth wall.
On /a/, where do you think?
and i manage to fuck up the filename as well
Crazy how things turned out like that today.
I was thinking about a wikia or some detailed chapter by chapter analysis. Not that I don't appreciate /a/'s sages, but there's people in here that actually thought that Eva's rebuild 3 was 'good'... so not a really good source I would say...
Because the audio is stereo instead of mono. Some songs make heavier use of it than others.
We're posting on /a/, the guy was looking for story discussion on /a/, it's been discussed to death on /a/.
No one was talking about the quality of /a/ for Lain discussion.
it's a good fansite. It's also pretty mcuh the only place where new material Lain related is being made.
Does anyone know what you're supposed to do for the cyberia game
Well, its an anonymous board after all. Users will be spilling every kind of opinion/interpretation ever, its up to you to work up what is reasonable and what not.
KIDS, the sudden alien thing and KNIGHTS are probably the most difficult to understand parts of the plot. The overarching idea of subjective experiences defining reality is easy enough to grasp, but the means in which it's conveyed are confusing.
Why did they stop ;_;
Any way to download music from this site?
>The download's right in the thread bro, they very much do, unskippable to me
I haven't watched Lain for a while but sometimes I used to just listen to the OP.
Also, it's one of the handful of openings that I never skip. Not ever. Even today I will often skip almost 99% of everything and not even bother with the ED.
But somebody knows about a site or place where I could find that?
Look at the page source.
You'll see where it's from.
Sorry mate, you're by your google-fu now. It's been a long time, I remember even reading a doctorate thesis on lain back in the day.
Source, please. Source.
Closest I've found is this guy who did a doctorate on otaku culture.
He's got a Lain analysis site up here.
I marathoned this some time ago and I was lost the whole time, am I only going to like it if I watch it more than once cuz it was a chore to finish it the first time.
This nigga better not be drawing lewd pictures of my Goddess.
This thread made my day, now I'm going to rewatch Lain.
>lewd pictures of Lain
Is there even such a thing?
Ok, ok. I'm searching. If its stored somewhere I'll find it.
Don't do that Hidamaribro.
She's so pure she probably don't realize the lewdness of her clothes.
No matter how much I look at it, I can't see it.
She probably just dropped a screwdriver or something into her suit, and she's fishing it out.
Rest assured, he's not.
Right i'm back, gonna play some more Cyberia and try to figure out some more shit about the whole login thing.
Might make a new thread in a bit if I actually find anything worthwhile
>figure out some more shit about the whole login thing.
I wonder if /g/ could get through it.
Let's ask them
I'm sure they love Lain too
Lain is /g/'s waifu.
I'm glad I came on /a/ today.
Nice to have you back I searched some things as well, read
Damn, guys. Its surprisingly hard to find it again. It might be this one http://muse.jhu.edu/login?auth=0&type=summary&url=/journals/mechademia/v007/7.jackson01.html
but I have limited access and can only view the abstract.
Good work soldier
On my end, well I just noticed that.
>Not text pls ignore. /a/ was here
>You will never log on to the Wired
You can find that with ctrl+A though
if you want to check it yourself, just inspect the mouth on the terror page
I'd say whoever it is he's a norwegian from /a/. I actually know a norwegian who browses /a/ personnaly... don't think he ever confessed some kind of fanatical love for lain though.
Jævla brukere nå er me jo her igjen uten mål og meining,
me vandre evig i tåken av i morgen hahaha~
FRYD DEG FOR ALLTID FORDI JEG
VANDRER PÅ DIN VEI!!~ GLEDE!~
does someone knows norwegian? the fuck is that
smug Lain > your waifu
Fucking users now we're here again without purpose and meaning,
me wander forever in the mist of the morning hahaha ~
DELIGHT YOU FOREVER BECAUSE I
WALKER ON YOUR WAY! ~ JOY! ~
shitty google translate, but still seems to get the point
Google translate is your friend.
Fucking users now we're here again without purpose and meaning,
me wander forever in the mist of the morning hahaha ~
DELIGHT YOU FOREVER BECAUSE I
WALKER ON YOUR WAY! ~ JOY! ~
I individually checked all the other pages, none seem to have similar messages or notes. Nothing very noticeable either. I'm shit at computer stuff though.
OH SHIT JUST WHEN I WAS DONE I CHECKED THE LOGIN PAGE, ACTUALLY DIGGED A BIT AND BAM
Okay i'm definitly going to find the solution to this shit. Not stopping. DONT CARE
Why is some of this in Norwegian?
mio a shit
>cheat the system
>there is a system
>there's a way to login
I found a last.fm page that seems to be connected and a youtube
good job soldier
>/a/ was here, also mio a shit xDDDD
this coding for a login allows no possible answer. It will always give you back this same webpage. This " hystory.go(0)" part means you will get back to the current page you are in, setting it to -1 will go back one page and so on. the "users online" is randomly generated through a script, in the page there are flash scripts which aren't shown at all. They are:
That explains why WebScarab wasn't intercepting anything. Well done.
/g/ pls, you are starting to scare me
awww, guess we've seen all there is to see then. thanks for the info, I can finnaly stop this obsession and go on with my life.
The first part is correct, but the last part in caps is from the song playing in the background. It's about walking the path of Jesus. Sorry for bad English
big help, I knew something would be lost in an automatic translation. Is there anything else worth of mention?
It's a joke, if that helps. The whole post he made that is. It's all bout finding jesus
We could always try and find who running the site. Although the mods would frown on that
It's pretty much found already for me, it's some norwegian bro who studies as a game dev and loves the fucking shit out of lain.
i'm just gonna hope he keeps making new content and cool stuff.
I'm still curious though... trying to cheat the system. That implies there is something to cheat for, y'know what I mean? I should probably just move on but I can't help but think theres something to it, even though the coding for a login allows no possible answer.
I'm also Norwegian and love Lain, maybe I should find him and Fuck his but
It was a good ride.
Is it true that the NA release of the BD has banding issues?
One time I emailed the guy and he responded. He hinted that there was is in fact something hidden on the site. I didn't get any clues though.
can you post the actual reply.
Also the fuck are we supposed to be doing in cyberia?
I looked through my email but I couldn't find it, so I must have deleted it. As for cyberia, I always thought there wasn't really anything to it. The guy had some other game on his site that was just music from lily chouchou and pretty backgrounds, so I thought it was something like that. Not sure though. There could be stuff hidden anywhere.
There would be a Disk 2 if I could find an ISO of it. Sadly it doesn't exist anywhere. The game is mainly there for curiosity's sake since there's no actual gameplay, just a bunch of diary entries and cutscenes that will never be translated.
If anyone finds Disk 2 I can add it to the folder.
You guys are starting to creep me out.
Escpecially since for the second time on alt tab lain was watching me.
Out of 707 files I've only got maybe 4 lain wallpapers.
I walked everywhere. It seems completely desolate, and not even a 1:1 of Cyberia as far as I can tell. Shame since the dungeon crawler was actually cool
Lain is watching you bro.
Could you post that wall?
not him, but here
Not quite, but thanks.
looks like I have the exact same one as well
There we are.
I want more sweater Lain.
They're mostly embedded youtube videos.
Right-click -> view page source.
Can't login, see the source of login page:
>input type="BUTTON" value="Ｌｏｇｉｎ" onClick="history.go(0)">
Also, and I'm quoting it directly,
>If anyone tries to cheat the system I'll kill u, also nothing to see here, also mio a shit xDDDDDDDOOOOOOCCCC
I'm listening to Lain OST right now, Cyberia mix.
I actually got the soundtrack before watching the anime, that's what made me watch it in the first place. Awesome piece of music.
I love this site, feels like an online art exposition.
Based russians have everything.
I downloaded it like a year ago.
Fucking rutracker makes me wish I could read Russian
But Lain is always watching, through any screen with internet.
Not like it's a bad thing.
Yea I'll pass
I watched it and NGE as a kid, then as an adult(age wise), i still have no idea how i managed to sit through them as a kid, long winded series to portray a simple message.
What exactly was the message behind Lain?
>NGE and Lain
>Long winded series
it's by Boa. And it's good
give it a chance
That we don't seem to understand.
does this show get any good past episode 8? it's getting unwatchable
So, this is official IRL Lain according to the artbook. Is she everything you wanted?
>not liking the acoustic version
What a faggot.
Not as bad as I expected
If you're not feeling the aesthetics of the show then just stop.
You're not good enough for this masterpiece anyways.
Who is that walking away from the Camera?
Lain isn't for everyone. If you're not fully invested by now, you never will be. Just drop it and move on.
You either love Lain, or you'll be bored to tears by it.
Colliding realities of what we want to see, how we want to be seen, what is really there and how the internet kind of fucks these 3 things.
Least that is what i got.
If you don't like it by now you probably can't handle it.
Just drop it and don't turn into those 'hurr Lain is pretentious bullshit' people
No one special. Visual Experiments Lain contains photos ABe took around Tokyo for scene setting purposes. Some of the photos have little Lain easter eggs, but not all of them
>Liking acoustic music
Sorry you like the sound of twanging rubber bands with a cat getting shredding
>registered about 20 minutes ago and haven't gotten a confirmation code
Really? No, like, honestly. Really?
I would be terrified to hear what your taste in music is like.
you clearly haven't actually listened to the song
But Lain plays acoustic. Are you saying her music sounds bad? Do you not love Lain?
yeah i just wanted to make sure i didn't drop at the wrong time, maybe something really interesting happens in episode 9 explaining wtf is going on and the who's the other lain and the knights etc, but if it keeps the way it is i'd better drop it
Lets all love Lain!
that exact thing happens in ep 9 or 10 actually, but if you're bored it might not make a difference
Yea, no idea why but, i can't stand people singing without at least 3 backing instruments and guitars are my least instrument.
Pretty much anything that isn't fucking acoustic.
Yea, i have.
Well, everything get explained. There's no real plot holes or mysteries left by the time the series is over. Aside from the Alien stuff but that's one big red herring.
This guy offers a clear interpretation of what goes down in the series, but word of god is that every interpretation is equally as valid.
Such shit taste.
Knights are just a group of hacker. The other Lain doesn't exist, there's only one Lain but Lain "exist" inside different people. The other Lain created this Lain btw.
Lain herself was the alien.
Its just how people saw her since she was an observer "from outside"
lel I got the email right away.
maybe you entered it wrong
So if it isn't acoustic it's shit and you're saying that i have shit taste
>>Do you not love Lain?
You don't have to get violent.
so the point of this anime is like the real you x how people see you?
>Not righteously purging heathens who don't love god
>so the point of this anime
Don't become fixated on the 'point' of everything you watch.
You will know.
A Red Herring to the overall plot and a metaphor for the amount of extraneous information available on the internet
I disagree, I believe it was to set up a back story for the world from the point of view of a conspiracy subculture (read it in an interview somewhere)
Threadly reminder that critical reading of Lain exists and should be pirated by everyone.
>BOA - Duvet ["Serial Experiments Lain" Opening, autistic]
There's also this.
are these good reads for Lain fans?
Robots Ghosts and Wired dreams is pretty good for anime history in general.
It also has a nice section on Patlabor 2 and hyperreality.
I wish there were more of these books in english, there are tons in moonrunes.
Cyberia, I read but barely remember.
where can i download those?
At your local library

It's like actual 60s psychedelia holy shit this is amazing; it's so ridiculously hard to find this kind of thing.
