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.

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.

i no longer need a body


Yes you do, i believe in you. Make sure to take good care of it.



You need your body and your body needs you. In face, to say the two are separate isn't entirely correct. It will get better, anon.


sometimes it just feels like its another thing that im lugging around or have to take care of, just another material object. material things are the root of all suffering, y would i keep this body its just wasting space and another object.
maybe i will live on in the wired, maybe i really dont need it.


thanks for believing in me and the kind words.
it means alot.

hi, this is a very nice imageboard and i feel a bit less lonely here. i finished lain a while ago and i am just regressing each day more and more in complete darkness. i can't even feel emotions unless i cry. meanwhile i'm really getting more and more online. It's like i'm searching for something that does not even exist. i really relate to lain in a way and the message to be with someone. I've seen the hikikomori thread and although i still go out for uni i'm feeling like i am becoming one too.

How do you deal with the unbearable loneliness? How can i connect with someone? I wish i had someone, but i can't trust anyone it's so hard. It's so hard to connect to someone even in the wired i don't know how to do it.

Is there a way?

You really have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone if you want things to change in your life. You can't look at activities and situations you've never been in and come up with an excuse to think you'll hate it when in reality you've never experienced it so you won't know until you try it. Even while you're reading this you're trying to come up with a reason why I'm wrong and why it's better that you stay in your comfort zone away from things that you think you won't like but have never tried. For any real change to happen in your life, OP, you need to reject that low self esteem inner voice and put yourself out there. You won't get instant results. It takes time and a commitment to expose yourself to people you don't know and situations you've never been in. It's exposure therapy and it'll cure you of most of the problems you've stated having in this thread. The first step is always the hardest and that step is telling yourself that you're wrong and that you're gonna put yourself in a social situation no matter how afraid you are to do it.

I believe in you, so you better not let me down, Lain


Well… All right. Yes, I was already making some excuses. I am at home for another week or two because I have exams, but then I promise I will do something… I just need to find the right places to try. I don't live very near the city but I will do my best. I hope I will eventually find someone. Thanks Ain.

(by the way, i love dead space and callisto protocol ;) )


You gotta fucking stand up for yourself


No problem! It gets easier the more you try, I promise.

Also, I love those both too :) great games, especially the OG Dead Space.


I'm on the same page, but I'm 26M… I just put up through work, pretend like I'm sleeping, conscience off, ignore that I'm wasting my time at work and just do the work… then at night I get home and enjoy some vidya.. at friday night I get myself a bottle of whine and gulp it all up throughout the night wihle I play some competitive FPS and enjoy some bangers on and off. Sometimes I'll get whiskey instead of whine and drink throughout the whole weekend… I cook some cute meals for myself and stuff. I don't really have any friends, I have one friend and we talk on the phone like once a week but it doesn't go much further than that, he's much older, married and busy… I feel a bit down sometimes and I wish I had a girlfriend… but… have you really looked around you and noticed all the greed, interests, social leverage and many other negative aspect of relationships… have you also noticed how someone's social network is always morphing? If you look at how it really is for the social types.. you'll probably vallue your situation a little bit more… I really really like my lonely weekends! A girlfriend would be a really good thing… but would she be willing to spend the weekend watching anime, playing games drinking and smoking? I bet not! I hope you can find what you want in life… just know that your current situation is probably not that all bad… which doesn't mean you can't strive for another situation you might find more convinient… cheers <3

the script for was released only in japanese and a full translation was made available only recently. though it's been 14 years since that came out and konaka said basically the entire story was changed since then. here's the link if u wanna read it https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cc90_qrIes8RfHWNLBICEyA97jBlJmd5Dhx3YMgslek/mobilebasic


I have never heard of this before, but I have to check this out since it has the same director and char. designer as Texhnolyze and SEL.


it's not just by the same creators, it's a spiritual successor to lain and the project dates back to 2003


never even heard of it, but
>Ain (あいん, Ain) - A 14-year-old girl who resides in her workshop in the basement of the Ryōunkaku in Asakusa, Tokyo. A technical genius with no prior scientific knowledge, she is able to create electronic devices far beyond the capabilities of the current era. Some of the devices created include early versions of a modern computer, complete with typewriter keyboards and cathode ray tube display monitors. In the graphic novel, one of her ongoing works is a mysterious robot which she refers to as Father (お父さん, Otō-san). Despite being 14 years old, she often displays the maturity of an adult. She is also shown to be capable of generating electricity from her hands when she takes on a tank squadron later in the story.

sounds familiar


>She is also shown to be capable of generating electricity from her hands when she takes on a tank squadron later in the story.

What a kind gesture contrasted with a one word insult and no additional context.
Wirechan, you perplex me.


I don't think Lain would dress like that.


Club lain would


A notice; A thread about Death and moving on. I didn't really see a place for it; of course it's up to someone if they want to keep it. I know in the construction of this place that was kept out of it. b/c /feels/ in other places tends to lead to drugs or just unuseful discussion. of course, what the fuck am i adding? I couldn't really post this anywhere else so I'm trying here. That's all I can do. I don't need help. I don't want it. I just...want to put this somewhere. Thanks.

If I can't come back, thank you for all you did and all you tried to do.I'll never forget that.I broke through, and now it's your turn. Go be what I saw in you.Sorry for stealing your name too.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fascination_with_deathAs always there are a lot of things to consider.I am curious about what death holds. To a certain extent it represents, to me, the ultimate freedom. It is really the only achievable way humans have of transcending all laws of reality and fantasy (at least with our current knowledge and technology). It takes a certain kind of courage to stare death in the face without fear, or so I have been told.On the other hand I am equally curious about what the future holds for humanity. This curiosity is really the only thing keeping me alive at the moment. Looking at all the awesome new tech that comes out every day never ceases to amaze me.


I am hopeful that in my lifetime there will be great urgency and progress to cure death. There are some great people involved in the transhumanist and biotech industries. I am quite enamored by the teachings of Aubrey de Grey, bringing a rational approach to solving natural death. Thanks to the human condition we will never be satisfied even in a complete utopia. There will always be some knowledge that eludes us, such as any of the infinite questions with no answers. What it is like to be dead is just one of those.Without having a perfect knowledge of your life and situation I can only speculate. I sincerely wish you all the best in your endeavors.


Thanks for your comments. I'm interested in transhumanism in the sense that I think there should be some kind of marker or permanence to someone's life that they could leave behind other than the biological imperative.So much of our experience translates from the biological, as most of our brain is hardwired for that. But we've an abstraction now that we've created and it's not only a part of our world but it's a part of us too.So that's interesting. I just hope that we don't build these things too far too fast, so that we're not maturing with it. I don't expect anyone or anything to solve our problems, just what we can fix and carve a little life for ourselves and each other.

Does anyone remember the website mebio.us? You can find it on archive.is, see if that will jog your memory. The source code is still available, so I was thinking I'd host an instance of it. What do you think?

Of all the uncalled for things said on this lengthy godforsaken thread, you don't need to bring suicide up again. Hasn't the world suffered enough divide without you making it worse with an offhand comment like that?

Think about this, there is more negativity than positivity on this page. Set aside your fudging differences, transgender or not, and call it a night. Worst thread on wired IMO.
sry /rant/ over.


I like this thread its like a heed of warning for potential trannies so they can look forward to see what they will become.

Im making acollage from the archive.

This is by far the best post on the thread lol



Oh yeh. Encourage self-harm why don't you? Lock. This. Thread.



Lock and pin this thread.

This is wirechans most posted thread and the most divisive one so far, and while its important for the site culture it has definitely ran its course, shame that the tranny thought his post werent up to par and deleted them. This thread its just gonna devolve itself into flaming. It its important to the site culture though.

I am glad to be on of the few people that know about this site and watching it all unfold.
