During my talk with Carl about Almost Human, a police sf series, one of the topics was the length of the series. I recommended a classic Japanese animated TV series called Serial Experiments Lain. That triggered memories, and so, during The 2015 Sci-Fi Experience I rewatched the series.
The main heroine is Lain, a shy Japanese 8th grader who is not good with computers, but slowly gets pulled into Wired (Internet-like network).
If I had to describe it in one word, I’d be confused between “eerie” and “classics”. It’s both. Weird. Great. Worth seeing. Still fresh. A journey inside psyche and the world. There is not one main focus, tho the focus is on Lain. It’s not a TV series that you can watch and forget. It’s not a simple story where all the questions are answered by the end. It’s a story that is questioning things. If you’d ever wanted to have a serious talk about science-fiction series, I suggest watching this one.
Except the plot and characters, I like the sound in SELain. The sounds/music in the series catch your attention. You pay attention to the background.
My opinion: 10/10. I recommend it to everybody, not only fans of science-fiction.
Did you connect with Lain? Will you connect with Lain?
