ED1: “Tooi Sakebi (遠い叫び)” by Reichi Nakaido
PRESENT DAY… PRESENT TIME… HAHAHAHA… Let’s embrace the mindfuck world of 「 Ｔｈｅ Ｗｉｒｅｄ 」.
Stay away from the Internet, kiddos.
One of the most interesting mind fucks out there. Interesting gem of a series.
An anime that was way ahead of it’s time, conveying how the internet has become a big part in people’s everyday life. A daunting show.
Perception is key, and reality is jaded. The Mind fucking may be too much for some, but it’s definitely worth your time. So, go and dive in.
About as weird and screwed as anime gets but I loved every second of it. There’s a tense atmosphere here I’m sure most would appreciate.
If there is anime that truly encapsulates the weird and bizarre nature of the medium, then look no further than Serial Experiments Lain.
