I don't know if this the right place , so move it if it belongs to another forum.

So what do you think of this anime ?
Personally, I think it's a great anime. Even though it's confusing and hard to understand. The animation is great, and the storyline too. And apart from that, it's alot different from other anime series. It's not like most anime series, where there are good guys and bad guys..ect.
I still haven't finished it though, i have to buy the last dvd sometime...

this anime confused the hell out of me.

the ending made sense though

I won't spoil it for people.

confusing

4 stars

especially since it involves computers

Well, I LOVED Lain, It was beautiful and Abstrat, and thats a hard combo to pull off... I never found lain all that confusing myself, but if it confuses you, you should go Here (http://www.cjas.org/~leng/lain.htm). (Warning: lots of Spoilers)

I liked the intro song.

the reason why i dont like it is because my girlfriend thinks it&#39;s the godliest song and plays it CONSTANTLY

Yeah, Lain kept my interest and make me wonder, so I thought it was great. You guys should check out Boogiepop Phantom as well. I don&#39;t see how anyone who likes Lain wouldn&#39;t like it.

I tried to get Boogiepop Phantom, but they only had the box set, and that was more than I was ready to spend just yet.

Maybe you should send me some, Tekken.

Watched Lain? Liked Lain? Loved Lain?

Whether your answer is yes or no, go see Haibane Renmei. XD Same people, beautiful story, quite thought-provoking.

I really want to see Haibane Renmei. I learned about it in Animenation, but unfortunately i can&#39;t buy it, cause i don&#39;t have money, or a credit card..lol

I think it&#39;s popular enough that, given a little more time, it will be more easily obtained (Found my copy in Australia ^^;).

Yeah, but it will take a really long time until i can find it -here-. I live in Greece...
And even if I do find it, it will be really expensive.

And yes, Haibane Renmei is great stuff.

Beats all. I only saw the first few episodes, and someone ruined the ending (at my bidding, but nevertheless) so I know... kind of... how it ends. But it was a real mind trip, wasn&#39;t it?

I&#39;ve only seen a few episodes of Lain, but I&#39;ve seen all of Haibane-Renmei and Boogiepop Phantom, which are GREAT anime.

I dont know about you people but Lain is one of the coolest anime characters out there. The anime in general just makes it that much more sweet. I havent seen the last few episodes yet either but I think I know how it ends. Lain .... :wub:

I found a Lain DVD at Future shop( at first i didn&#39;t even know they sell anime.lol.), i heard alot of good things about it, it costs around 30 to 40 dollars.. which seems alot. I almost bought it...usually due to my impulsiveness every time i see an anime, but i figure it was graphically intense for me(i get nightmares easily- which is why i never watch scary movies). The one thing different is the design of the characters, especially lain.

Lain is in my top ten favorites, definately. Its one of those anime that you really have to dig deep to get the true meaning out of it.

I think lain is a character that is portrayed really well. I can tell from looking at pictures that's she introverted and i've never seen the anime.
