This, but it's correlation, not causation. Lain is very popular on tumblr due to the a e s t h e t i c meme. Trans is very popular on tumblr as well. Hence, overlap.

why the hell is lain popular on tumblr? and what aesthetic meme surrounding lain? I've really stopped paying attention to internet communities opinions on things.

And i don't get how people think lain is an anime only pseuds or contrarians like, or pretend to like... Well other then the fact that pseuds and contrarians do pretend to like lain. But to brush off a whole show because stupid people like it for the wrong reasons is pretty dumb.

You have not been long enough on the wired to understand Lain's influence.
Give the show another watch sometime, in a year or so, you will change your mind, I changed mine myself.

Lain is a really interesting something I have never witnessed before in my 5 lives, and I think it's importance in the internet is extremely controversial and maybe a little convoluted, but I can't get too not carried away in myself, so I digress.

You see, when it comes to Lain and the intricacies of her self, we can assume she is indeed the Goddess of the overworld of what we call the interconnected consciousness of the human mind that is dubbed as the 'Wired' - it is a parallel to the interconnected network we all live here today on this very plane of existence.

So you see, that is thy it's importance is extremely interesting, and yes it is an anime with narrow appeal to the masses, but that it not important right now.

What is important is the philosophy it carries out to you in its own convolutedness, and I believe that is where the beauty of all of it lies, within the many lies and truths and twist around the narrative that is the story of Lain and her development into Goddess (unless you would also debate that she was Goddess from the very start). The way that its convolutendess in carrying the messge is is parallel to how convoluted and twisted and confusing the connection of networks in this day and age is now - now, we have a big influx of information and data within society, so much so that the truth is now subjective, and that the objective truth can never be known. I believe that Lain is meta in this way, in that its very convoluted conveyance of message is parallel to this - Lain, not just her f=self but the whole show, exists on an entirely different plane of meta - we are nothing to her.

I hang out with lipstick lesbians for fashion advice, and trannies tend to flock towards them.

I guess feminine lesbians represent the pinnacle of womanly to trannies.

All you need to do is simply dislike shounenshit, SOL, and haremshit to be a contrarian on /a/ . If anything being a contrarian here is simply stating you don't have the worst taste imaginable.

The only "SOL" worth watching is haibane renmei, there is not a single haremshit or shounen shit worth watching. At best you can say monogatari for haremshit but its a pseudo intellectual show that only discuss 4th rate psychology. If you were to discount the psychology aspect then the show is literally just a meme harem as always.

Normally I would call tits or gtfo but in this case I guess you kind of had to.
Either way I think you probably meet way too many trannies, and the reason they latch onto something like lain or any psychological anime is because most of them are depressed or have major psychological issues themselves. You cannot put blame on something simply because a small population you encounter frequently enjoys it.

As an example I showed lain to my own father, who has had a successful life and used to be in theater. He said it was one of the most enjoyable things he watched, that is a 60 yea old man whos had a family and a business.

I meant as a counter example, he wasn't depressed or a tranny.

However you can end up latching onto psychological shows in general due to a depressive state because you spend more time thinking your own mind than others who are "normalfags". Which is why I brought it up for trannies

Funnily enough I just finished watching a recommendation list with Sky Crawlers on it. Was going to watch it but booked it away for tomorrow since it's late as hell here. Shame to hear it's not that great.

I'm like halfway through Shinsekai Yori and I've started Akagi, never been a fan of most of A-1 works nor have I ever played mahjong but I'm finding both shows to be pretty great so far.
>>

>sky crawlers
It might have been better if I didn't pick up the entire plot point in the first 5 minutes, all the good reviews I read about it after I finished watching seemed to not realize till it gives it away. So perhaps if you don't immediately know whats going to happen its better. Even then it was full of 3d shit and I did not enjoy the characters at all.

>akagi
I loved Akagi, not as much as Kaji but it was still great. I would recommend the manga "Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa" made by the same guy if you're into manga, its even better than the other two in my opinion. I also have no experience in majong, I found watching a couple basic guides on youtube improved my experience watching though.

Yea I've never found anything enjoyable from them but never watched Shinsekai Yori. I might give it a try since you liked it.

Might try that before I watch it next, absolutely loving the atmosphere of the show so far and the OST is kickin'. Akagi's a straight-up badass too.
Already read Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa my man, one of my favourite manga of all time. Made me cry like a bitch at the end.

As for Shinsekai Yori, I've found it to be pretty different than what I expected it to be. If you watch it, just know that the first few episodes are pretty great but episode 8 and 9 have a pretty significant drop in quality, but everything after that is pretty much really great. It also has a fantastic villain in it, and it's got a really interesting atmosphere.

If you like shows with sorta-philosophical tones to them I'd recommend you watch Kino's Journey too, it's pretty comfortable but great.

Iktf, one of the most depressing things I've read. Glad to know someone else on here has read it too.

Way ahead of you my man, was a good watch. The movies were kind of terrible (especially #2) compared to the main show/ova but oh well, at least the first one explained the past a bit. I'm hyped up for the relaunch this year. I assume you've watched Abe's other works too right? tfw despera never

outdated and superficial

the philosophy tries to be deep but it's all wrong. tries so hard to make you think it's smart when it's not.

if you like this show you are either a teenager still trying to figure out how the world works, or you're a dumb ass adult who hasn't grown up enough to ever face responsibility in his life.

Not only is this show ugly as fuck, the music (or lack of) fucking sucks.

but this constant edgy moaning and pissing "Who am I"
"How can you be me If I am me?"
"Who is god?"
It's silly and pathetic.
the lack of a real plot and any redeeming qualities makes me wonder if the goal was to create the absolute least popular show of all time.

Now seriously, SEL is an amazing anime, yes its has his fault like in episode 9 has shit exposicion in the beginning but the story, the atmospheric and the philosophyc messanges about the Internet and the impact that has in our lives in every aspect are great.

¿Why the hate? ¿It´s only for be "pretentious"? ¿Or the shitposting is too big in /a/?
