Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

Serial Experiments Lain Collection

Acclaimed artist Yoshitoshi ABe brings to life the existential classic that paved the way for blockbuster films such as The Matrix.

Close the World. Open the Next. Decades before the internet was something people carried around in their pockets, these words introduced anime fans to a surreal existence where computer monitors served as portals to brave new worlds.

Serial Experiments: Lain and it's deceptively "ordinary" title character redefined an entire generation's concept of the world wide web, prompting us all to suspiciously take note of humming power lines and central processing units. Follow along as 14 year old Lain - driven by the abrupt suicide of a classmate - logs on to the Wired and promptly loses herself in a twisted mass of hallucinations, memories and interconnected psyches. Close the World. Open the Next. It's as simple as the flip of a switch.

Close the World, Enter the Wired

The show itself is exceptional, indeed I may go as far as call this one of the best tv shows ever made. The transfer itself is satisfying, the product arrived slightly behind schedule, yet not significantly so. On the other hand, this is a rather barebone release with next to no extras and no booklet. Packaging in mediocre, although the cover design is nice. I just want a bit more for my moneys worth. I recommend buying this for the show itself, but value for money is not good. Just look at the Criterion edition of 'A Brighter Summer Day.' It is cheaper, the film is only slightly shorter than this series and it comes with an abundance of extras and a collectors booklet.
