Just finished this.
Hands down,one of the best things I have ever watched.
A true 10/10.
Do you like Lain,/a/?
>>
spaces go after commas
>>
>>101102990
Yes, there are some stoners around here who like it
The alsoy can't write for shit, just like you
>>
As an OP, remember you can get attention on /a/ by mentioning the following in your thread.

Serial Experiments Lain
Neon Genesis Evangelion: End of Evangelion
Space Dandy
One Piece
or and assembly of words defaming or promoting a female cartoon character.

Remember these tips to validate yourself when online! I'm sure we'll have a great day!

>The alsoy
I guess I proved my point by myself
>>
>>101102990
Yes, /a/ in general loves the series.
>>
Its to early for good Lain threads, wait about 8 hours then post again OP.
>>
I don't, it thinks it's smarter than it really is. The theme was old and busted already when it aired.
>>

I didn't really get it, I didn't pick up a single reference, which I find weird since I'm a computer science student.

Is it just because it was written for the generation before me or am I just casual as fuck?

I'm not saying I didn't enjoy it, it was pretty interesting, but half the time I didn't know what the fuck was going on and the other half of the time I felt like I was listening to an in-joke without being in on it.

I loved Lain, it was honestly probably my favorite series. It really got me thinking so much and fucked my mind so hard that I couldn't think for months. I still look back at this series and just am fondly dazzled by the pummeling it gave to my brain. I do agree it's definitely not for everyone, but I don't get why some people think it's pretentious or think that it "thinks its smarter than it is"; I can understand if it's a bit esoteric for someone, but that doesn't reflect the quality, it just reflects a difference in tastes. Which is fine.

Oh. I'm sorry. I'm drunk a little bi.

It makes them feel smarter.

It's more philosophical than technological.

love it

I love how the game portrayed Lain like a normal girl.
>>
>>101102990
Dub was god-tier.
How is sub?
>>
>>101102990
I don't know why people thought it was 2deep.
Yes,they were some confusing scenes. But everything was pretty much explained.

Lurk more newanon.

interested in a party, m8? I'll suck your dick.
>>
>>101105489
Yea; it's unfortunate that people discard it as such just to feel better about themselves when it really isn't even necessary.

Come on guys, the dub for Lain is pretty well done. I mean, obviously this is /a/ but it's on a Cowboy Bebop level for its dub; and the one thing I will give Bebop is that it had a pretty damn good dub. So I won't insult this guy for that. But yea, sub was still better.

>>101106186
Sure.

yes it's one of my favorites with texhno.
>>
What actually happened to her sister?
She was deleted. But why?
>>
>>101106399
Wasn't serial experiment lain done by the same team who did texhnolize ?
>>
>>101106622
Texhnolyze was more ABe, Ueda and Konaka coming together again than the 'same team' as a whole. Triangle Staff had dissolved by the time of Texhnolyze's production, and it was Hiroshi Hamasaki directing instead of Nakamura for Texhnolyze.

daily reminder

>>101104533

It's not a matter of how smart I am, it's rather the fact that the show didn't deal with the themes in a way that was fresh to me, it was shit I had seen/read before. I can see why people who had their first exposure to these philosophical themes would value Lain, but I don't.

Perhaps it was that my expectations were raised after the praise I heard about the show, and perhaps I would enjoy it more if I rewatched it. I don't know.

Rainu and Arisu sounds best.

I'm a filthy ignorant faggot, please someone enlighten me on what this is supposed to remind.
>>
>>101109825

Was gonna be an anime created by some people who made Lain. One of them fell ill and died this summer, putting production on hold.

Sucks.
