I was really excited going into this - I'd heard so much hype for years. But I found it slow, pretentious, and inaccessible. Pity.

Although somewhat outdated and unscientific in terms of its portrayal of the internet, I do admire its take on mankind's relation with machine as well as a number of other themes. Visually speaking, the show is really breathtaking and it plays really well with its own themes and general weirdness. It is undoubtedly hard to follow, but one thing to consider is that the show has numerous different ways to interpret it. In essence, it's kinda like Evangelion in that regard for better or worse.

Being avant-garde is fine, but there's a line between being experimental and disappearing up your own arsehole. This falls on the wrong side of the line. I imagine its high rating is down to an Emperor's New Clothes-style delusion where people give it credit because everyone else is praising it and they don't want to be the one to call bull.

Interesting setup but the philosophical line of questioning isn't really resolved in a satisfying way (read: not a complete mess), nor is it really precise enough to think about

Lain is overrated shit written by people who understand nothing of how technology works, they simply take what was hype at the time (emergence of the Internet) and then use what was "cool" at the time (macs) and create their own misinformed take on this and spitting some pseudo-philosophical shit over it to make it seem like they can relate to you. It's purpose is to demonstrate how little understanding people have of any relation between humans and machines.

This series is the perfect example of the obscure psycho-thriller genre of the animes. I loved it when I watched it at those years, but looking back maybe it was too ambigious and revealed too little in the end for my satisfactions. But as an attempt to build an atmosphere about the fuzzy boundaries between virtual/real, it is still top-notch.

Serial Experiments Lain is rather artistically ambitious, ruminating on the internet, Emergence, Japan's distrust of individualism and other fun stuff. Despite the praise for it (even a couple of academic papers written about it), I thought it was philosophically hit & miss - and the sci-fi medium for its philosophy was distinctly unscientific. The mood and art were quite striking; unsettling.

Serial Experiments Lain is a psychedelic, post-modern cyberpunk series that one wonders how the director ever managed to make. Lain centers on a very shy school girl who slowly begins to figure out that she is not what she seems to be. After getting a computer and connecting to the “wired,” something with is far more expansive than the internet, Lain begins to realize that she may not be human, and that truly, reality and the “self” is exists (or does not exist) on many different levels.

Perhaps if I had watched this when it originally came out, I'd be a lot more impressed, but the animation is far too lackluster to give a high score to.
