Anime Similar to Serial Experiments Lain?


Question

Hey! So, I'm currently going through my list of anime to watch/catch up on, and I recently re-watch Serial Experiments Lain. I absolutely love that show, its so interesting and I enjoy the creepy surreal art direction.

So, I was wondering if you guys know of any series that would be worth a watch that's similar to Serial Experiments Lain, be it in general story beats and concepts, or in it's visual style?

Also, I've recently re-watched Paranoia Agent, which I enjoyed in a similar way to Lain, so somewhere between the two would be a bonus!

Cheers!

Try Haibane Renmei and Texhnolyze - both written by the same guy who wrote SEL I believe.

Wow, those all look really interesting!

I've seen Ghost Hounds recommended elsewhere as well, I think on the thread asking about horror similar to Higurashi? I love that series as well, so that's going to be my top priority to check out!

Definitely interested in the other suggestions as well, especially the two you've mentioned RZ. If they are written by the same guy, that's going to be interesting to compare them with Lain.

 

Thank you both for the suggestions!
