Ratings & Reviews

This is one of those shows that can not be explained to anyone thoroughly. It can be interpreted in many ways and will always numb your brain with each run through of the series. If you like psychological and complex situations, then this show deserves a chance.
Serial Experiments Lain is psychological thriller with quite a bit of social commentary on the obsession with computes and technology. There are many scenes that are left open to interpretation, which makes it a very unique series. There isn't anything else quite like it.
The animation is very well done and this remaster has incredible quality.
One of my favorites
This is a very good anime that has multiple watches in it. Starts alittle slow but stick through it and you won't regret it

Along with Neon Genesis Evangelion, this was one of the first anime series I watched back in the 90s as a teenage anime fan. Sadly, I never got to finish Lain back then, but it always stuck with me...Particularly the image of Lain in her white slip surrounded by a tangle of cables and cords in her room. So years later I decided to buy the series so I could watch it again and finally finish it, and I was not disappointed. The series' exploration of the interplay between identity and technology is perhaps even more relevant today in our technology driven age, and visually the anime looks great despite its age.
