sooo thanks to reading heartstrings by @taylordraws i was up til 3am doodling this garbage. god help my lost soul.

also i’d been talking to @littleblackchat all day about it and she was designing up what she imagined Mari’s dress from chapter 3 looked like, and I doodled this version based on her descriptions and early doodles of it xD so it’s a little different from the one she posted. Also I pointed out that the keyhole in the dress was perfect for Adrien in that scene, since he put his hand there and gyid7573943778hsjdfj IMAGINE IT GUYS imagine it

that feel when your incorporeal Dark Lord cbf coming up with a Cool Villain Name for his least fav follower X)

based on this post, and because I can’t get over learning that Asmodean literally means “Musician” in the official Wheel of Time companion book, I’m still flipping out poor Asmo, this is why I love you

“No, they’re not here. Yeah, understood…Detective Johnson! That’s what I thought. Okay. Thanks, Dan. Thank you.”
“Detective Jose, Detective - Clemenson, come in here.”

Complete 3-video compilation of the T-Birds’ “scene work” at Rydell PD from Jordan Fisher’s Snapchat (jordan_fisher)…the gripping cop drama where Aaron appears to be playing the police receptionist or something.

ooc;; hey alpha dream/intelligent systems, i know you’re having fun working on the mario series, but you know who’d also be good for fun RPGs,

I can't remember the name of this book series

At least I think it might have been a book or maybe a graphic novel. All I know is that there were comics in it. Anyways it’s a fantasy novel aimed towards younger audiences (like Spiderwick). The main character of the series is a girl whose little brother went missing a couple of years ago on a carousel ride. I specifically remember that he might have been riding a swan. The girl helps an old lady who lives across the hall from her and in this lady’s apartment is figurines of fantasy characters from a fantasy book series. The main girl’s missing brother was in love with this book series. I believe the old lady gives the girl something that transports her to a fantasy world that is the exact same world from these books. Apparently the older lady was the young girl in thw fantasy books. Apparently this is where her little brother was taken to and I believe he might have been stolen for his imagination/dreams and was kept in a pod sort of thing. I also believe the ruler of this world was a blue lady? 
Anyways, thank you for any help you can provide!

Why You Should Watch Serial Experiments Lain. (Analysis)

So, it’s come to my attention that during my few years of watching anime that nobody really talks too much about the psychological series that were experimental and unique in comparison to epic, story-driven series that are (more than likely) the same and unoriginal or (more than likely) bland and uninteresting. There are several series I can name that get more credit than they should, but yes, there are several modern hits that are worth watching and still hold up to this day, for example, Fullmetal Alchemist. However, something about the anime that came from the 90′s - Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, and even Sailor Moon to an extent, all hold something that several modern anime cannot capture: amazing characterization. It’s in this that we can see familiar archetypes that have been replayed over and over with newer releases, and it’s easy to see why they got so far, because the 90′s anime were different. Serial Experiments Lain, an anime created in the late 90′s, is different as well, but because of its creative atmosphere, intellectual ideologies, and fascinating characters, makes it worth every minute of your time.


Serial Experiments Lain is worth your time because it actually focuses on psychological and philosophical material rather than just action and adventure. Now, both of the latter are good in an anime because it gives its audience something enjoyable to watch, such as good fighting in something like Dragonball or Naruto, or it’s pleasant to see characters bond over the journey, like Fullmetal and even Spice and Wolf. However, there aren’t many anime that take the cake for being a series you can be rest assured you will think about for a least a little while after you watch it. Even if you don’t think much about philosophy or psychology, you will get something about of watching Serial Experiments Lain because it’s goal as an anime is to make you question. You’re more interested about the wired, or the Internet world in Lain’s plot, rather than who is going to go against who. There are several moments that make you actually pause the scene and have to step back, not sure of how to interpret something that intimate, or something so far beyond your ordinary thinking that you go, wow, an anime that actually does something like that?

SOCIAL IDENTITY.

Lain focuses primarily on the deconstruction of technology, but also primarily on the deconstruction of people, and society. Lain Iwakura, the strange character found in the GIF above, is the persona of what separates and combines the wired world fro the physical world, and basically in Serial Experiments Lain, she could very well be one of the strongest reasons to invest yourself in this series. I know personally that many people are drawn to shows which have characters who are unsure of what they are, or their purpose. Lain is exactly this: she doesn’t understand much of the physical world and is often questioning her role. The entire series delves on this concept, that these wonderfully written individuals do not comprehend some of what this world is giving to them, and it’s not just Lain who questions this: it is Lain’s father, mother, and sister, along with her friends, especially Arisu. Lain knows that there is something farther out there that she has to learn for herself, and you are with her because you also feel as though whatever is out there, whatever is hidden from the basic layers of our world, should be revealed, and you relate to Lain because of this reason.

Lain also focuses on serious topics regarding social identity and socialization. Lain constantly suffers from DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder), since she alone is not just herself, but multiple personas in one entity. 

There are also several other disorders that are established within Lain as well as other characters, from depersonilization disorder, schizophrenia, and even depression, and keep in mind, these are are mental. There’s no telling what kind of other disorders these characters face, which is why it is so interesting that this show allows its audience to experience these characters feeling this way - to allow us to see this for ourselves.

RELEVANCE TO THE PRESENT.

Serial Experiements Lain was created in the year 1998 by director Ryutaro Nakamura. The reason I think the year of creation is so important is because the message it carries is so relevant to today’s society because we can understand how technology has grown since the internet first was created. When Lain first was released, the series itself was only just following the creation of the internet, yet it already establishes that we as a society would use it to its fullest (or even to this day, not yet fullest) potential, like prophesying how we would we would wearing goggles to communicate with others, or how we would glue our eyes to the screen to play video games, or how messages can be sent faster than the legitimate timing of a blink of an eye. Serial Experiments Lain also contributes to how we interact with others online more and more as time progresses in comparison to physically. This is evident as Lain talks more with her wired friends rather than Arisu and the other girls. 

ART AND ANIMATION

One reason in particular I always enjoyed Serial Experiments Lain is it’s use of art.  Yoshitoshi ABe, the character designer for Lain, contributes his more realistic style of artwork and backround designing to give Lain that down-to-earth yet experimental feel the show has going for it. There is an array of dark shades and rustic colors, but also at times there can be colors that seem outlandish. The animation itself isn’t too gaudy, and it doesn’t try too hard: it knows the focus of the show lies within the characterization and the processes of thought, therefore it knows vibrant and flashy animation would only spoil the theme of the series. 

CONCLUSION

If you want to watch Serial Experiments Lain, please keep in mind that it is a series that while everyone can get something out of watching, it focuses of the why’s and how’s. Lain is not a series to watch if you’re in desperate need of graphic homicide, slaughter and gore. It’s also not a series that involves a trek, where characters explore the galaxy, and honestly there aren’t many scenes in Lain where you can call it a comedy. However, Serial Experiments Lain is the perfect show to watch if you want something interesting. If you love the ideas and deep thinking, you’ve practically hit the gold mine. Not many other series like Lain will take you to such personal levels, hitting all the marks - socialization, religion, philosophy, psychology, theology - not to mention the amazing build up that will take you on the rollercoaster to find, how do you perceive the universe? Even if Lain doesn’t make you question our world or our motives, it will make you at least question why characters do the things they do, and it will give the encouragement to find those answers as you finish watching. As Lain says, “No matter where you go, everybody is connected.” And with this show, we will be.

on another note, my camera comes in tomorrow so I can start my vlog (after years of talking about it, I can finally do the thing) and with that being said, you’re gonna get the in details of all my posts on here, but it’ll mostly be on YouTube so that’s a thing
