Synopsis

The Nightmare of Fabrication is a beautifully drawn full-color manga from Yoshitoshi ABe. The 18 page short story can be found in the "an omnipresence in wired 'lain'" artbook.

It's a bonus story which apparently isn't related with either the anime nor the PS game. It shows characters who were included in the PS game but not in the TV series (like the psychiatrist), but also determinant characters from the anime who didn't appear in the video game (like Deus).

“I want to talk to someone. Who can I talk to?” - Lain, The Nightmare of Fabrication

“A man can be himself only so long as he is alone”. - Arthur Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Idea


This is a short story which is part of Lain Omnipresence in Wire art book. Not only does this book present absolutely awe-inspiring lithographs of original artwork from Lain but also the archetypal work of the multi-talented Yoshitoshi Abe continues to show his talents as a mangaka, illustrator and script writer. It is not only a beautifully crafted manuscript, but its images capture the likeness of a soul. It read more

That short illustrated manga is so perfect, i don't think i want much more from anything else. Thank you Yoshitoshi Abe for this small gift from the truly realistic picture of a unrealistic reality that only a few select have and understand. This short sequence to the show just makes an amazing small memory that can remind you of the whole 13 episodes.

The simple sketches of a girl in a room talking about something beyond any world, and remaking that into a dream, gives you the sensation of forgetting what reality even is. It gives you the power to portray anything and truly reach any read more

Serial Experiments Lain: The Nightmare of Fabrication is a short manga (18 pages) that's available in an illustration books called Omnipresence in the Wired. It's basically an artbook full of sketch of Lain and backgrounds drawn by Yoshitoshi ABe. Beside some artworks and the short manga, the book also contains some summary, main point or additional explanation of all Serial Experiments Lain's episodes and Yoshitoshi ABe's career history as an illustrator (only in re-printed version).

Serial Experiments Lain Fabrication is basically a summary of Serial Experiments Lain anime. Despite it's only 18 pages long it successfully delivers all the main ideas of SEL even though those read more

After dropping the tv series Serial Experiment Lain, I have decided to give this a try, and it was certainly a lot better than its predecessors.
"I want to talk to somebody. Who can I talk to?"
You can not expect much from this 18 pages one-shot since it's so short, but the mangaka succeeded in crafting art and abstract ideas in this.
Lain starts questioning reality and her thoughts.
This one-shot also includes characters not seen in the anime (from the 9 episodes I've seen, maybe I should give it the benefit of the doubt?) such as "god".
A very quick read, not even in five minutes, read more
