[ Comment ]
"lain" was a very extreamly sad works.
Until recently, I have been avoiding television so I want to ask the people who see "lain" what they think about watching television.
When you watch this work you will experience strong feelings of anticipation and fatigue.
It's hard to say how people will respond to our work but I know that the production staff worked with enthusiasm and sincerity.
[ Reason for Award ]
This work follows a junior high school girl, Lain, as she explores the often fuzzy borders between the wired and the real world.
We were impressed with its willingness to question the meaning of contemporary life as it explored the development of the computer and the ways in which real people live.
Much of the content is made up of down-to-earth school friendships and family relationships, but the questions this work asks are extraordinarily philosophical and deep.
