Was he right? Would we be happier if we left our bodies behind and lived in the Wired?
I don't know why /a/ thinks this show is good.
It was a clusterfuck of unexplained concepts and genre shifts without any coherent storyline. It literally did not make sense if you analyze it enough. It was a goddamn trainwreck.
But Lain is definitely the moest characters out there and the OP is amazing.
I don't know, watch Fractale and judge for yourself
Not even the writers could agree what the show was supposed to be about.
So, I recently watched it, if he wasn't god, what was him?
I still enjoyed it
The original concept of the series was about the dead coming into contact with the living through the Internet. (Which is how the series started.) Then they decided to add a bunch of stuff to make it more complicated/obscure, such as the alien apparitions.
ITT: Idiots who can't analyze basic themes.
Lain is clearly about the evolution of human communication and relationships in our increasingly digital era.
The alien apparitions were a bit pointless but they definitely made it creepier.
I have doubts
what was the meaning of the girl who suicides on the first episode? was his purpose just to make lain pay attention to the wired?
Also, what happened exactly to the men with weird laser goggles? were they trying to stop the use of the 7th gen protocol and prevent the union of the wired and the real life?
>The alien apparitions were a bit pointless but they definitely made it creepier.
The alien was Lain herself or a representation of how people saw her.
Find it out yourself.
I liked it too. Doesn't mean it wasn't bad.
>Lain is clearly about the evolution of human communication and relationships in our increasingly digital era.
Yes, that is the main message that, if you manage to sift through all the other pointless bullshit the anime added, you can get out of it. Still, it was very poorly executed.
