no. i got to four episodes and while i don't believe I've dropped it i haven't watched it in 3 years. each episode had some stuff in the middle that made sense kind of and then the end of the episode didn't
I think of it like The Trial. You're supposed to be left in the dark about the exact nature of most of the events, if you look at each individual thing under a microscope it appears nonsensical, but when viewed from a larger frame it starts to fit together.
What matters most is the emotions you feel as you watch it, and your overall impression, not what it "means"
I'm watching it right now, just finished episode 5. I love the visuals, the jarring sound effects and the reused animation to heighten the unsettling feel of the world. I chuckled at Lain going from a Fisher Price computer in episode 1 to a crazy server room filled with neon lights, vents and cables by episode 5.
This show was shit and made no sense. I was expecting Lain to be girlfriends with her cute friend but instead she married her teacher. Pseudo-intellectual, 0/10. Barely made me question anything but how long the episode had to last
>wonder why /g/ like lain
>mfw after watching the entire serie
