To claim that Lain is any less than awesome here is to blaspheme in the realm of your goddess. All hail Lain of the Wired.
>play track 44
more like lame amirite??
And what did Togusa forgot in that wallpaper???))
While the chances are admittedly slim, should I ever have the opportunity, I'll kill you.
is this Miyuki Is My Waifu undercover? I recognize the hollow Internet threats.
And you don't seem to understand...
Sorry to disappoint, but I've only ever been anon.
That series was so surreal. I love series that fuck your mind but don't even care to explain anything
I'M USING THE WIRED!
and appropriately for the goddess of 4chan, she is perpetually 13 years old
As well as being technologically capable but socially awkward.
Cute nerdy lesbians ae the best <3
I'd make her teach me computer science, if you know what I mean.
saging artistic bullcrap
you know that voice creeps me out everytime
That's it for hi-res scans.
Lain was a steaming pile of artistically well animated shit.
Regurgitation technical articles and other peoples theories may impress idiots but not this anon.
>technical articles and other peoples theories...
I'm not certain I understand. Would you have been more impressed if it had relied fully on the likely ungrounded original theories of the writers, or if it had simple disregarded reality completely as far as the technology was concerned?
I hate mindfucks but I'd watch lain just to watch lain if you know what i mean
I found Lain kind of interesting, but I am not the sort of fellow who enjoys excessive metaphors and whatnot, so the show never really clicked with me.
I like the art though.
I would have preferred it if the writers had attempted contemplated the technological subject matter abit further than just reading up on theories and implementing them in animation form.
TL;DR - It wasn't DEEP enougth for my liking.
Lain is God, you say? Amusing.
And while I agree that Lain wasn't deep, I've yet to see any anime that is.
As far as anime is concerned though, I don't think it would be possible to make one that was any deeper without making it unwatchable. Almost every aspect of it, from Lain having madeleines with her father, to the decision to name her best friend Alice, to using Think Bule Count One Tow as a password had multiple meanings (lol layers) that I at least had to watch the series a couple of times to pick up on.
We are wired.
I wish Lain would take me to the wired.
I'd welcome a human singularity with Lain, if you know what I mean
What does "deep" even mean? I'd say Lain was actually deep in a sense the series relates itself with actual real-life reality and sort of comments it with all of the theories and reference stuff. Even the storyline in it was constructed so that you need to think what's going on in order to understand it. The story gives no answers so you have to figure it out on your own. Anyways, all of the disscussion about the meta-references and philosophy in Lain is kind of besides the point since the main theme of the anime is portraying emotions.
>What does "deep" even mean?
I really wish people would use less broad and ill-defined terminology. Even "complex" is an improvement.
It doesn't mean a damn thing, that's why people use it.
DEEP = TECHNOBABBLE-LIKE SHIT I DON'T UNDERSTAND
DEEP is a Japanese mixed martial arts promotion which specializes in the lighter weight classes.
DEEP is considered second-tier Japanese promotion.
is this 1998

This is the artfag view of technology.
I prefere the techfa/g/ view of technology.
This picture captures my feelings towards the Lain Anime.
Not that I dislike Lain.
