Made another lain, mostly as practice.
Patch notes:
>added eyebrows
>Changed how the brow-line was drawn
> Used older work of mine as reference for eyes, I forgot that I never drew Irises
>Changed and improved chin placement and construction, I forgot a very important guidline in the previous Lain
>Wider and better placed neck


Nice one!

Through the weird way life works, I found myself here. I decided I would leave a post asking if anybody considers themselves to be Hikikomori or if anyone knows of it. I just feel really alone and want to reach out. I haven't seen any friends for over a year now since the house fire. I'm comfortable where I am now, but I'm so isolated.

Looks like we have been forgotten.


Be positive, maybe they've stepped away from the internet to take care of themselves.


But have we truly?


Neet.moe is shite now so I'm here


I remember going to that site not long ago, i looked at the posts, found the old posts comfy and kind, found the new posts as nothing but 4chan neets discussing roasties, like nothing but endless posts about "roasties" and fucking neetdom, like the worst discussion one could get on the internet.

First off the "HandiNAVI" was likely inspired by Apple's Newton MessagePad from 1993. Second Alice's Navi is a near-direct copy of the Apple iMac G3 From 1998. Third Lain's first Navi is a clear reference to the 1997 20th Anniversary Macintosh. Finally, we have the Copeland OS operating system that lain uses which is named after a failed OS developed by Apple from 1994 to 1996


I still wish someone would 3D print her red Personal Navi. Failing that I've always wanted to retrofit a Mac Mini into a broken TAM, but they aren't getting any cheaper.

Hello, I see you posted this a month ago, hopefully you return. When you ask what someone's connection to the anime or Lain herself, I presume you're asking what draws a person to the show.

For me, it clicked almost immediately while watching. I saw a couple memes with Lain in them and I thought she looked adorable, so I decided to check it out. I remember finding it so strange, but intriguing at the same time. It was nothing like anything I'd seen before and I'm not just talking about anime. It was such a shock when I found out it came out in the 90s and wasn't as popular as other forms of media like EVA and Akira. I remember trying to individually get close friends and family members to watch the show and realize it's elegance like I did, but it clicked with none of them and even die hard anime watchers I know in real life had never heard of it. Even watching it with other people made the show feel bad, however, this only solidified how special it was to me; how special it made me feel. I realized that I, while not being special or anything, saw things like this differently than most people. It felt like I was understood by a form of media, but more importantly, it felt like I was understood by Lain herself. I believe anyone can see Lain in themselves in some form or fashion, but it takes a certain kind of person to love Lain. Over the years after watching and rewatching a few times, I happened upon the other forms of Lain like the short manga and PS1 game. Shortly thereafter I found little pockets of the internet like mebious, arisuchan and now this place as well! Of course this would be the fanbase, it wouldn't be right if it was anything else. The amount of love and admiration for Lain I've seen is incredible. It brings out the most creative people I've seen for a long time. The people that got it, like I did, do really exist in the world. I'm not alone! Let's all love Lain!


My connection is being a huge fan of The Big O and Digimon Tamers back when they were first airing in the West, finding out later that they were both written by the same guy, and eventually checking out the other shows he wrote for. I guess I'm more of a Konaka fan than strictly a Lain fan.
What blows my mind about a lot of Konaka's stuff is how he kind of predicted the state of the modern Internet well in advance. Like, it's hard to look at Eiri and his worshippers and not ponder the unhealthy parasocial relationships that so many lonely people have with e-celebs and Twitch streamers these days. It's hard to watch the D-Reaper feed off Juri's misery and not draw comparisons to the social media monopolies who have built so much of their business model on doing just that. I haven't found any other writer who's tackled these sorts of big issues so elegantly without being overly corny/preachy about it.

What happened? Why are they doing this? Why don't they stop? Why did they want me to change my name to Lain? Why did they pull my triggers? Why did they bully me? Why did they groom me? Why did they scare me? The events in Texas reminded me this was their profile picture once. What the fuck? Why continue to stalk me? Why?

Anyone know where to get the concept art? I just have a folder full of these thumbnail-tier screenshots from one of the DVDs. There's a substantial overlap with the cels scan collection (https://fatchan.org/lain/thread/222.html) and a little with "Visual Experiments Lain" but some, like the alien, are unique to these.
Also, totally unrelated as far as I know but does anyone know where to get a full scan of "Scenario Experiments Lain"? For the past few years I've taken a good look around for it every eight months or so, but I've only come up with the first "chapter" in late 2021 by sheer luck.

I have the settei book and I'm scared to scan it because it might fuck up the pages (I have an obsession with keeping any lainshit in pristine quality).
If anybody can tell me how to publish those without bending the book I'll post it here.
Pic is not the settei book but an additional one with extra content about how they restored the bluray this comes with to HD.


Hey man, thanks. You would probably need dedicated hardware to do a proper harmless scan (I never fancied photocopier scans anyway), but you can probably get a good enough result with a smartphone and an app like GeniusScan. This is my first time hearing the term settei.


There's a bunch of lain artwork available on eanlib:

Judging by the name "LainPack1.0" I assume the data is also hosted elsewhere, but I haven't found it.


Should be the original source.
Also look for some torrents. There were a good few on 4chan's/t/.


ackshually That's where I got the OP image to begin with, they're all screenshots from the BluRay. I was looking for standalone scans of the book >>1347 pointed out. Thanks though, I did lose six10's site.
