Next DVD on my list, Serial Experiments Lain, episodes 1-4.
Now I've seen a single episode of Lain before, and to be honest it scared the crap outa me. So I decided to start from scratch and get the DVD's. Honestly, I don't know what it is about this anime, but it completely drains me emotionaly. I feel depressed, sad, almost scared, after just the first 4 episodes. I don't mean to get all deeply philosophical or anything, but I just don't know haw to explain it.
Basicly, the show is about an 8th grade girl named Lain. Shes the quiet one and has no friends. She is extrmly reserved and very childish. shes loved teddy bears, and wears teddy bear pajamas. After she recieves an email from a girl that killed herself the week before, she sasks her father to buy her a new computer. She soon becomes obsessed with computers and begins to customize and mod it. She also begins to change as a person, and apparently there is another girl named Lain who looks exactly like her, but a complete polar opposite in terms of personality.
As far as the animation goes, its beautiful, but I didn't think it was possible to draw such empty eyes. Its really creepy. But what I think is creeping me out the most is the intro song. There is just something about it that haunts me...
EDIT- Ok well, according to my friend, its not just me. Seems Lain has a notorious reputation of turning people into depressive emo's. He afraid to watch it, and I've taken the rest of the DVD's off my list. Maybe some otehr time I'll finish it...
