I'll give it a chance, because people said the same about Donnie Darko but they were dead wrong. Also just finished watching Vampire Hunter D movies. Bretty good movies 10/10, it has a vampire hunter called D who hunts vampires

It's been forever since I've last seen Lain, I don't recall the plot exactly, but it was definitely a weird show. I believe I watched it first as a teen on Adult Swim, but AS was very bad about showing episodes in order, so I had literally no clue what was up with this show. Watching it again in sequential order when I finally had access to the internet, I could KINDA make out what the show was even ABOUT. It definitely struck me as one of those big brain shows that makes you want to think, even if the only thing that stuck with me afterwards was how good its opening was.

Look, we need to raise a psychopath who will murder God, we have no time to be spending on cooking.

the way your fingertips plant meaningless soliloquies makes me think you are the true evil among us.

I saw the 1985 one and the 2000 one. Don't think there's any others, though there was talk of a tv show adaptation that got postponed to production hell during covid

I just finished Lain and feel I've only understood half of the ending, yet this was about as much as the creators intended for people to understand. I like mysteries so for me this is a positive, but it's not that narratively satisfying.
All in all it was 13 episodes made out of the same stuff that made the last Eva episodes so juicy. This classic is very approachable time-wise, mind-wise less so.

Started watching Legends of the Galactic Heroes, and its early days yet, so things could entirely change, but the Kaiser is a godamn gigachad.
That is all.

Not much of an anime person myself, but Pokemon's got something of a nostalgic spot in my heart. To that end:

Haven't watched it in at least 15 years, but it's making me feel weirdly fuzzy inside. Maybe I need to give it a bit of a nostalgia binge.

There's speculation that it might be the end of him as a protagonist. The final episode's called something like Pokemon: I'm glad I chose you, which mirrors the first episode's name Pokemon: I choose you!

No way they'll completely end the series, it's far too much of a cash cow.

It's time for him to go back to his roots and beat the guy with the Waterproof Sandshrew.
