Serial Experiments Lain is not for the typical action shonen lover nor for the faint of heart. It is a highly cerebral series that viewers must pay close attention to in order to glean all of the details.

That being said, Lain is highly enjoyable with good animation for its time and a VERY well-written script. The voice acting is average with nothing to really make it stand out and the soundtrack is composed of ambient noises instead of a traditional track.

I enjoyed this anime primarily for the thought provoking themes it presented to me over the course of its 13 episode run. read more

At first the series held a lot of promise. I liked the concept of a strong main character who only wants to study in a delinquent school and beats the crap out of anyone who disturbs him but deep down is a caring individual who would do anything for his friends.

Then the story (and the fighting) spiraled out of control and I found it hard to really focus on what the main storyline was. Ending with a completely random hasty ending I was very disappointed with the author. The story had so much potential which is why this series is so disappointing.
