Old Thread: >>3779446
The PSU in my server died so I'm relying on google for pictures until I fix it.
her autism melts my heart
>>3792929it's okay anon, we'll look after you until then
>>3793306Thank, I know the thread is in good hands.Thankfully next day shipping was an option and I work from home so I fixed it today.
>>3793425Nice one anon, good job on fixing it
>>3793293>>3793294>>3793295>>3793296>>3793297>>3793298>>3793299>>3793300>>3793301>>3793302>>3793303>>3793304I apologize if all of these are reposts, I don’t have a whole lot of rare lains saved since most of them are in the depths of Twitter and Pixiv, I hope these are enough to get the thread rolling though. >>3793425This one is precious
>>3793643Don't worry, not a lot of Lain art gets made anymore sadly. All my posts are reposts of imagines I got from LainArt anon...
>>3793782I’ve actually been seeing a lot more as of lately, I feel like Lain is becoming a little more mainstream but I doubt it’ll ever be on the scale as most of the other shows on the /c/ catalog. I’m completely okay with that though, Most people don’t appreciate Lain for what it is
>>3793643Don't worry about reports, I only have around 1200 fan art pictures and I've been reposting them for years.
>>3793876The right option is to, of course, draw your own art. I mean, I got a hell of a lot free time now, might as well learn how to draw better, and draw more lain.
>>3793782>>3793802There's still a pretty regular flow on Pixiv and Twitter. For a twenty year old show with a short run and a fairly niche premise, it's maintained it's popularity more strongly than some other IPs. >>3793878Good luck anon and try your best!
>>3793782tkmiz lains are the best
>>3793905need more wide lain in my life
>>3794684What's she playing?
>>3794783Welcome to San Andreas, I'm Lain from the WiredLand of the heinous and recently expiredIn Los Santos, neighbors post on /c/Beefing with anybody competing, even /jp/
Why is Lain so... inconsistent? It’s weird to me how different she looks in the art book and promo art compared to the Anime series
>>3795288They probably had to simplify the design for the ease of animation. Or maybe they just decided to go with a different look over the course of the development. Art is an evolving process.
Use in case of cyberbulli
>>3795245That was really cute, anon :3
>>3793876>1200 fan art imagesI asked about a year ago. Do you happen to have a drawing of lain sitting inside a car looking angry? She was holding a cube I think. Post paypal. Will send you money if you do have it. It was obviously fanart and she was in a chibi-like form.
Sorry, I was a little slow to post this
>>3797668I don't see anything like that, but I'll keep my eye out. Sounds cute.
>>3797668Not holding a cube or looking angry, but she's in a car...
>>3795808made more betterer
Behead those who lewd lain
>>3799527keep safe frens
>>3798422Thanks anon. Much appreciated. I'll keep lurking these threads. I'll probably learn how to draw and draw a close approximation of it. >>3798308Oddly close to my request but the fanart I look for was a little more "shipost-y" for the lack of a better term. Thanks for the cute Lain though!
>>3799529That’s a big car
>>3799900maybe Lain is just smol
Define Lain with one word
>>3800597I would also say 'autism'.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oj3VphK9AMk
>>3800724She's not lonely, she has Alice.
>>3800675>>3800705Have the creators ever explicitly stated what’s wrong with Lain? I feel like outside of wired jumbo jumbo she could actually be on the spectrum
>>3801073Not that I am aware of. Though she is named for Scottish psychologist Dr. RD Laing, who had some controversial ideas about mental illness, specifically schizophrenia. Also she sees a therapist in the vidya adaptation, so there's defiantly something going on in the attic.
>>3801086Is vidya lain even connected to the anime one?
>>3801086>she is named for Scottish psychologist Dr. RD Laingsource?
>>3801086I never heard her name was a reference to Dr. RD Laing, if that's true I'll have to read some of his stuff.
>>3801343>>3801616I swear I read it someplace 'official' but I can't seem to find it anymore, so please forgive me. I know that I've seen it repeated a lot around the internet, so maybe it was just a fan theory that has become accepted fact. >>3801309It's a separate continuity I'm pretty sure.
>>3801833>It's a separate continuity I'm pretty sure.My headcanon is that PS1 Lain and the Anime Lain both have the same issues but the Anime Lain is undiagnosed as she never went to a therapist like the vidya one, and the game serves as a sort of window into her mindset. Granted, It's been a while since I've read the translation for the PS1 game and if I remember correctly Lain is kind of a fucking nut in that game so I could be way off the mark here but I'd still like to believe.
>>3801883>>3801833>>3801309Have you guys read Nightmare of Fabrication? It has Eiri interacting with who appears to be PS1 Lain. My own headcanon is they're related, with PS1 Lain being an earlier attempt by Tachibana Labs to create her. Anime Lain fixes a lot of what was wrong with PS1 Lain, she has a better group of friends and a more present Father for example. Alice and the influence of Yasuo played a big part in helping Lain avoid a bad ending.
>>3802121Didn’t mention this because i was pretty tired and zoned out last night but that last part kind of falls in line with my theory, If Anime Lain and PS1 Lain were all in the same Anime Lain had more supporting outside parties (actual friends, a non abusive family) and that saved her from doing any of the bad shit that happens in the game
>>3802375Forgot to re-attach my image after refreshing my page
>>3801883>>3802121>>3802375An interesting interpretation. I always thought that the message of SEL was the importance of finding good and honest friendship in a cold and uncaring world. But that's just what I got out of it.
>>3803735Is that a garage kit?I have one already but I wouldn't mind another.
>>3804713Not the guy you’re replying to but yeah, there’s around 3 of those I think. IMO they’re way cuter than the dolls but they’re pretty expensive and I have no idea how to paint or assemble garage kits...SEL needs more merch, I think it’s probably better that the creators never sold out but a Lain figma would fill a void in my heart... probably
I tried finding a Lain doll......talk about the 'nightmare of fabrication'.
let's all live Lain
>>3804734That’s... kind of horrifying
