    Enter the wired... a classic mind trip
    if you like anime where there multiple layers of meaning to stretch your imagination. Then enter the wired.

    take a trip through the concepts of communication, identity, reality and the fear of death. death may be the wrong word here as it is more the concept of death and what that entails. The loss of ones self from the tangible(material and physical) to the intangible (abstract). why do we ...

    Classic Sci-fi Masterpiece
    Serial Experiments Lain is an amazing anime from the late 90's with some truly mind bending sci-fi themes. It's about a girl who receives a mysterious message and begins going on the Wired, which is somewhat an equivalent of the net. The fundamental story is about technology and the blurring of the borders between the real and online worlds. It explores exercises in surreal existentialism and ...

    You won't be the same
    This extraordinary series will take you into passages and depths of experience, apprehension, dread, and finally hope. If you open yourself up to it, you will see the kind of art that anime can be. "Imagine it and you can draw it." And this is an amazing work of the imagination. This series changed my life. When the last minute rolled away, I saw things differently. That hasn't changed.

    One of the best that I have ever seen!
    This was one of the series that got me hooked on anime. A must watch for everyone! So many themes are touched on throughout this story. Lain is quiet and outwardly shy but deals with and grows so much. I'm going to binge watch this tomorrow on my day off!

  • A good one to watch!
    I like this Series, have some serious topics that can make you think about it. It is not the usual type that we seen on the mainstream if you ask me but it is very interesting. If you are looking for something that is out of the ordinary, I would recommend this one.

  • One of the least-known-but-amazing anime out there.
    There's an element to it that's similar to Akira and Ghost in the Shell, but as distinct from both of them as they are from each other. It manages to be surreal and dense and yet easy to follow for the casual viewer.

    The thought put into this story rivals most stories that have succeeded it. The art that went into creating the animation bests a number of American blockbusters. The protagonist ...
