When Lain came out in 1998, home PCs and the internet were still a relatively new thing for everyone to have access to. The show follows introverted high school student Lain, who receives an email from a dead student at her school. We then see Lain’s journey through the virtual-reality “Wired,” aka the internet, and her interactions with groups that seek to control it. This series tackles some heavy stuff — the major themes are about loneliness, mental illness, how technology both separates and connects us, suicide, and, uh…the nature of reality. It’s unsettling, but well worth watching.
