Watch Serial Experiments Lain

Serial Experiments Lain is a complex anime series that follows the story of the main character, Lain. Lain is a completely normal girl, living an average, relatively boring, life. She has never had much to do with technology, although her dad is a computer enthusiast. That all changes, however, when Lain learns that girls at her school are receiving computer messages from a fellow classmate, Chisa, who committed suicide. Before Long, Lain gets her own message from Chisa, and is soon in contact with the girl, who is supposed to be dead.

Chisa’s messages and information take Lain on an intense journey. Chisa explains that she is not truly dead, but has only given up her body in order to deeply connect with the Wired, a type of internet or virtual world. Chisa also tells Lain that she has found many answers through the Wired, and has discovered the one true god there. Lain is at first skeptical and hesitant but is soon pulled into the mass of secrets that the Wired contains. As Lain discovers new ideas about herself and the world around her, she is forced to question everything she has always believed to be true.
