good analysis: http://www.cjas.org/~leng/lain.htm

A quite surreal アニメseries made in the mid 90’s
It is an illustration of the popular fantasies of the day concerning the newly popular-ized Internet and “wired world”.

didn’t make sense the first time.
the second time i watched it alone, on Melody, in the hospital (see 33.)
then, it was beautiful.

the graphic style is quite appealing. as well as the early 90s network fantasy aspect... someone old skool as me would appreciate such a plot. the girl Lain manages to become ambiguous. almost not existing, strong & wise, young & fragile.
