I can tell you clearly that this anime has made me realize one thing:
Anime from the 90’s is fucking awesome.
I love everything about it, I wish it didn’t take me so long to realize it. The animation was awesome. The plots were stellar (there’s some 90’s slang for ya). Everything was awesome. I guarantee that when I finish this show, I’m going to go on a binge of 90’s shows, so if you have any good ones, feel free to leave a comment.
On to the series.
Serial Experiments: Lain
Sadly, I was beaten out to write a review on this show by some jackass, a person who I told to watch this series, therefore I’m going to make this short and sweet, and try not to copy too much.
This series, after one episode, seems to be about a young girl named Lain, who is in junior high. A classmate of hers killed herself, but is still emailing people in the class, who think it is a sick joke or a prank. Lain, well…..she’s……hmm….even I, with all of my literary prowess, can’t begin to properly explain the awesome which is this show so far. It reminds me heavily of Akira, which is one of the greatest anime films ever made.
This series is heavily psychological, which is something that I haven’t really seen much of, but love like the dickens (lol). I can’t get enough of this stuff (I didn’t say shit! Woo-hoo!). I can’t find one thing I don’t like about this show thus far. And I’m positive that I’ll finish it by tomorrow and write a review, so I’m just going to say:
- 90’s anime rocks
- Psychological anime rolls
- Lain looks like a character that rock and rolls, and then goes straight to my Top Ten Anime Characters, which appears to need several revisions (hint, Ichigo has had his bags packed for ages), and may need a revamping soon.
Oh by the way, here’s something I thought was funny. They use these computers called “Navi’s”, and all I could think of was:
EDIT: The OP rules.
DOUBLE EDIT: Sometimes an anime fucks with my brain, and I can’t exactly think clearly/function correctly for a few days after watching it. I become socially withdrawn, paranoid, edgy, and pretty much lose my mind (only for a few days though so no biggy, at least that was the case with Neon Genesis Evangelion, which isn’t even that bad psychologically).
After watching the second episode of Lain, I’m almost afraid to continue because it’s already making me feel weird, especially the scene where that random dude takes that drug thing. I actually started losing it. Although that might be because it is now 3 in the morning and I am tired.
Has anime ever fucked with your mind? I have a feeling I’m probably alone on this one.
Just a little fun fact for you.
