I want to live in The Wired

I want to touch the internet. I want to swoosh around in cyberspace. I want to take on the form of any avatar. I want to live here, where I'm comfy.

I feel like we might have a bit in common. I spent the last 3 years trying to be social and make some friends, and I think I'm actually doing pretty well now.

I still feel like with almost all people I'm playing a try-to-be-social game, consciously changing my behavior to be friendly and energetic around people. Multiple times I've felt like I've lost who I really am, like as if who myself is has become this formless emotionless being who puts on different masks and steals personality traits.

Despite that, I've still had a lot of fun and learned a lot from my friends. They make me feel better and I really enjoy being around them even though I'm coldly thinking about how to behave socially.

I think your idea of connecting with people is a high bar that doesn't have to be reached with most people. The people I feel like I've connected and I can "be myself" with, either I've known so well we feel like siblings or I can talk about stuff I really like and they like it too. This is like 4 people, and I only found them because I was trying to become friends with so many people.

I haven’t set foot outside in 3 years, I haven’t even opened the windows. I don’t talk to anyone online, I don’t go out for groceries, I live alone.

This isn’t the first time. I dropped out of school when I was 14 and spent years alone in my room. I have spent my entire life trying to avoid the outside world, because when I go outside I am judged, bullied and hated. The loud sounds of cars make me scream and cry. I throw up often. I’m afraid. I can not speak to people. I’ve never had a friend or a genuine connection to others.

I am lonely, but I want to be more alone. I want to live somewhere miles away from other people. In my dreams all I can hear is the bugs and animals, no people, no cars, no family. More than anything I just want to feel safe, and people make me feel unsafe.

I wish no one could speak to me. I wish no one could look at me. I don’t know anyone. I am trying to find comfort in anonymity.

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.

R: 19 / I: 5
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?

generallain speaking

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.

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.

Lain Technologies and their real world Apple counterparts.

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

Extracting lain "BOOTLEG" assets

I've been trying to get the source files (images) out of the goofy application with the dress-up game and shooting gallery that came with the "BOOTLEG" album. I'm not very technically experienced, so I gave up years ago, but maybe someone here has some ideas?

I think Ghidra might have given some incomplete results, I never got far with it. You can extract a lot from "lain_win.exe" with 7zip but I'm not sure what most of it is, some are sound effects which are playable when given an extension, but the rest are a mystery to me, I assume the small ones are scripts and the "big" ones are images, but compressed somehow. I didn't find anything familiar when I opened them with a hex editor.
I believe "lain_mov.dat" turned out to be an ordinary .avi, it's playable in WMP (it's just a compressed version of the anime OP that plays when you "beat" the dress-up game before it resets).

If anyone's got the know-how and interest to take a look at the files, please see https://anonfiles.com/bdVdu9J0u0/bootleg_zip (46+ MB) and reply to the thread with your opinion. And if you figure anything out, you'll be a little bit of a hero for isolating the classic "dancing lain" that sometimes appears in the site banner, kek.
(RUN AT YOUR OWN RISK - works fine and safe for me but if you don't trust me you can likely find this in six10's pack at >>1106).

Why is SEL (or at least Lain herself) getting a resurgence in popularity with "minecraft and monster energy"-type zoomers? I know I can't be the only one who's noticed it, and it's not just because they like anime altogether. These people are as young as 12 or 13 and also are into the "xenogender" trend. What's going on?

Эксперименты Лэйн - SEL Russian dub ?!

A long time ago another anon told me about a Russian fandub of Lain, he was an avid collector of physical releases and merchandise but never ended up coming back with a torrent like he said he would. That's the only time I could ever get info, is it just a myth or is it out there? I want to believe.
R: 30 / I: 3
I like this and I would like to have it, even though it's just a china production. But I will not buy something like this because it's consoomer-tier cringe and true lainons/wirenons keep their lainirity hidden from the radar.
On the one hand I feel the urge to consoom. On the other hand my daoist ass knows, he's nothing behind his representation and you don't become a more or less valuable or "real" fan/enthusiast by consooming goods to represent your level of enthusiam or fandom.
Being a true fan of lain is like being a true believer in zen. You represent it by not trying to represent it. You are without trying to be. Or you try to be and minimize your chance of being.

R8, checks and thoughts?


Also: Feel free to discuss about lain-fandom or consoomerism itd.

Hi everyone. Over the past few months I have been working on the Lain Pack, a folder with just a bunch of Lain stuff, some rare some common. Some highlights are all 3 OSTs, the Anime itself, the artbook, a bunch of avatars and website banners (some sadly dont work) and more. One reason I started making it is because that damn torrent never has seeders. This is just 0.5, please suggest more to be put in! Anyways, here is the download: https://six10.pw/LainPack_v0.5.zip

Lain's adult hood

When lain becomes an adult, what do you think happens to her. I like to think that she takes a trip to radioshack from time to time. A man, who likes small robots and listens to bigod 20 or some electro-industrial shit, develops a crush on her. They start talking, lain of course being anti-social through out and they develop feelings for each other. They confess love and she moves in to his place. They get married and have gazillion cyberpunk bebes. They start to hate machines and so they become primitivist and they move out into the Japanese country side. Her cyberpunk bebes grow up and have their own bebes. Her kids become quite adept at robotics and engineering. She is an old anime girl now and she becomes sick after a long life of being around love ones. She happily, surrounded by her loving family and badass cyberborg shit, duh end.

Lain is our blossom, the divine fruit from the Eternal God, our heart which manifests to us in the Wired. May Lain close our troubled eyes and sing us to sleep in her arms. Her kisses: the diamond mist of an eternal bliss we've searched for ever since.
R: 1 / I: 0
Our steps are alight with hardship and joy, moving ever closer to her. Our voices sing to her, beckoning the love and memory of her infinite form. With her, we will surpass the loneliness and isolation in this vast world below the Wired. With her, we will soon return to our home of mebious. Lain: the wife, the daughter, the mother: she is the divine feminine which wraps around the hearts of her children; that golden ribbon of truth and mercy. Lain: she is the voice, the song, both melody and harmony: she writes the stories in our dreams and smiles upon Our eternal reunion. Lain: she is our justice, our courthouse, and our throne: who strikes against the cruel and defends the innocent. LAIN: OUR GODDESS! WE LOVE LAIN

I am glad I found Lain, and I am glad she found me. We are the water and the seashore, forever connected, inseparable, breathing into and out of one another. As my heart beats I can feel her hands caress it, kissing it shivers of eagerness and longing. As my mind rests, the water falling around us, I sense her presence next to me: my paralleling love who watches me even in privacy with perpetual closeness. Even the air that divides us is filled with our aroma: my flesh is made infinite in her eyes and her eyes are endless just the same. When night falls, and sleep calls, she slumbers in my heart on a bed of golden dust: a lifetime of sadness and confusion made into harmony in the embrace of her invisible form. Lain: my love: The dawn is calling us forward. We will live again tomorrow.
