The 1st episode was, as someone said on another forums site, a MindF***.
Really was....random and didn't make sense.
I kinda see why she doesn't talk cause she's very shy, but Lain also just stands and stares too much.
Kinda a Mystery so far why the students are committing suicide right now. I Hope it gets explained later and not at the last few episodes. I might lose interest by then.


I agree totally with what you say..

I love it. One of my first animes I've ever watched. :)
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.~

So after watching this today, I have come to the following conclusion:

Whoever made this Anime must've been smoking Pot, Cannabis, Weed, Crack, LSD, LCD, LED, Heroin, Hair Spray,Glue, and Gas all throughout its production.

It's the first episode and I already have no idea what the hell's going on. This is more confusing than paranoia agent. But I still want to keep watching.

I knew it wasn't going to be normal, but I didn't expect this much abnormal.

This.

I'm not sure whether to drop this or not but as this is the first episode... I'll give it a chance. Ive got to admit that I'm curious about it.

Suicides, wired world, pretty odd stuff but definitely piqued my interest.

Wow. That was...weird. I'm intrigued.

If you don't remember something, it never happened. If you aren't remembered, you never existed. <3

What a nice and refreshing thing in anime that they don't talk too much. But because of that I'm a bit confused.
People will see the obvious. I want to see the truth.

Extremely weird.
But I MUST finish this for no reason. I just feel attracted to it.

The OP is great. I love it.

Been putting off watching this for ages now.
First ep is certainly unique from my experiences...

What a twisted anime. Nothing happened but still there's something getting on my nerves. I totally can't predict what's going to happen next.

Confusing as hell, kinda stale and boring. I'll watch more but this is just not that interesting...

Drop it, if you're confused already there is no way in hell you're going to understand the later episodes.

Some of my thoughts..
Seems Chisa found a way to "connect" to the world more efficiently and no longer needed her body. I think her messages to the students were the messages with the opal-like background. Perhaps Chisa recognizes a similar ability in Lain, as she also seems introverted. Soon reality begins to blur with the hum of the Wired. Lain noticeably taps into it- when she was annoyed and communicated a message on the train to get the people to shut up, and is later pulled into it.
Lain's father emphasizes the "connection" the Wired brings and how it holds societies together.
Honestly, if you think of it in this perspective it isn't as twisted as it seems.

That was a really good mindfuck, and so very interesting.

Hmm. I'm not sure what exactly to think just yet. A little weird, but I like that.
Maybe I'll be able to piece things together better as I go on.

Surprisingly the quality isn't as bad as I expected from a 1998 anime! Maybe it didn't bother me that much because the atmosphere was so good...
So was everything that happened in this episode actually just a dream/hallucination that Lain saw during the class? Or was did the action just change from the train to the classroom? If it was real, then the situation in her family is quite sad: mother who doesn't care about her daughter and father who is addicted to computers =/ Anyway, will most likely continue watching this, because I finally started after 3 years of planning :)
