Lain - Navi (Vol. 1)
We're all connected...There is the world around us, a world of people, tactile sensation, and culture. There is the wired world, inside the computer, of images, personalities, virtual experiences, and a culture all of its own. The day after a classmate commits suicide, Lain, a thirteen year-old girl, discovers how closely the two worlds are linked when she receives an e-mail from the dead girl: I just abandoned my body. I still live here...Has the line between the real world and the wired world begun to blur? We were impressed with its willingness to question the meaning of contemporary life as it depicted the development of the computer and the ways in which real people live. Much of the content is very down-to-earth school friendships and family relations - but the questions this work asks are extremely philosophical and deep.
