Looking back now, I see that this title is still very cool even nowadays.

Sometimes I visit Yoshitoshi Abe blog and the photos he takes from his neighborhood show that he is still fascinated with cables, shadows, lightpoles and reflections after all these years.

I always wanted to play the videogame because people said that Lain was even more strange than she is at the anime.

I've always been interested in watching this anime, so I'm definitely giving it a go. Not to mention I really like the genre/setting it has along with the atmosphere it gives off. Can't wait to watch it when I'm on a long break.

I was expecting a lot from this anime so maybe that's why I was kind of disappointed. I guess I wasn't suprised when I found out that this was from the same people who made Ghost Hound.
I didn't like how they made everything super vague and the pacing annoyed me too. It was like they tried to make it look super deep when it really wasn't??

I like cyberpunk things in general, but Lain's never really done it for me as a series. The way it leaves things so much open to interpretation doesn't bother me, so much as the fact that I never felt invested in the characters or what they were doing. To sum it up in a single word, I'd go for "impenetrable".

I really enjoyed watching this anime. I found it very disturbing but it was also powerful in what subject it looked at. And technology is taking over and becoming out of control. I sit watching friends who find it impossible to switch their phone off during their day and even the night now. Computers are even more invasive.

I totally agree with you Saber, Serial Experiments Lain was an eye opener, rocked me mentally .. sort of like Inception ... I have never seen such a challenging story ever ... damn I'm gonna watch it again
