    The world is slowly dying... In a post-apocalyptic future where humans live in large domed cities surrounded by wasteland, wolves are believed to have been extinct for 200 years. But some wolves still remain. These wolves live by disguising themselves as humans to survive. Wolf's Rain is the story of four wolves, Kiba, Tsume, Hige and Toboe, who will follow the scent of the lunar flower on a quest to find paradise. Opening Theme: "Stray" performed by Steve Conte Ending Theme: "Gravity" performed by Maaya Sakamoto "Stray" Lyrics In the cold breeze, That I walk alone, The memories of generation burn within me. Been forever Since I cried the pain of sorrow, I'll live and die, by the pride my people gave me. I'm here standing on the edge, Staring up at where the moon should be. Oooooooooh! Stray! No regrets cause I've got nothing to lose. (Nothing to lose!) Ever stray! So I'm gonna live my life as I choose. (Life as I choose!) Until I fall. Stray! Straaaaaaaaaaaay! "Gravity" Lyrics Been a long road to follow, Been there and gone tomorrow, Without saying goodbye to yesterday. Are the memories I hold still valid? Or have the tears deluded me? Maybe this time tomorrow, The rain will cease to follow, And the mist will fade into a new today. Something somewhere out there keeps calling, Am I going home? Will I hear someone singing solace to the silent moon? Zero gravity what's it like? Am I alone? Is somebody there beyond these heavy aching feet, Still the roads keeps on telling me to go on. Something is pulling me, I feel the gravity of it all. Characters Kiba (Fang): Kiba is the white wolf. He is tough and stubborn. Even though the group has no real leader, he seems to be the one leading them. He will face any danger to get to paradise. Kiba believes in Cheza the most. Tsume (Claw): Tsume, who originally lived among the humans, is cold and independent. He doesn't really believe in paradise but goes along anyway. Tsume's identifying feature is a cross shaped scar on his chest. Hige (Whisker): Hige is rational and doesn't like to rush into things. He always seems to be looking for food or women. Hige's identifying feature is his collar around his neck. Toboe (Howling): Toboe is the youngest of the four. He is kind and loyal. The others in the group call him runt because sometimes he slows the group down. Toboe's identifying feature is a bracelet on his right hand. Cheza (The Flower Maiden): We first meet Cheza in a research lab. She is suspended inside a glass sphere. She can hear the wolves and calls out to them. Cheza will lead the wolves to paradise. Blue: Blue was Quent Yaiden's dog. As Quent's dog she could sense wolves and helped him hunt them down. But one day she met Cheza and realized she was part wolf. After that she could take human form. Quent Yaiden: Quent believes his village was burned down by wolves. For revenge he plans to hunt down all wolves and kill them. Cher Degri: Cher is one of the scientists first seen studying Cheza. Her obsession with Cheza and the "Book of the Moon" strained her marriage to Hubb. Hubb Lebowski: Hubb is a police investigator. He is Cher's ex-husband. He is still in love with Cher and follows her after she disappears. Darcia: Darcia is a noble. He wants Cheza for himself. At first his motives are unknown. He is often wearing a mask that covers his face. Guide Editor:LadyL Thank You to all who have contributed to this guide. Note:If you are going to contribute to this guide please check your spelling.

    techtv (ended 2003)
    Welcome to the Serial Experiments Lain guide. TV Rating: TV-PG Genres: Anime, Psychological Drama, Science Fiction Serial Experiments Lain is not your typical sci-fi/drama anime. This unusual anime builds slowly as Lain, the lead character, goes deeper into the WIRED. More thoughtful then action-oriented, this anime is targeted more towards science fiction and mystery fans then action fans. A good frame of reference is to think of The X-Files crossed with The Matrix. It follows the life of 14-year-old Lain Iwakura, an introverted school girl who generally keeps to herself. She has few friends, a distracted father, a distant mother and a typically self-absorbed teenage older sister. Although most of the people around her are computer savvy and connected to the WIRED, Lain herself has never shown any interest in her own Navi. However, that all changes when Lain receives an email from a dead classmate. She is quickly drawn into the a dark and mysterious world of the WIRED. As she goes deeper into this world, the line between reality and the WIRED blurs; until, finally, a question is asked: "Who Is Lain?" Characters: Lain: Although introverted and quiet at first, as she gains confidence in the WIRED she becomes more outgoing and self-assured. However, there is a dark secret about herself that she does not know about. It is this secret that could threaten the fabric of reality. Yasuo Iwakura: Lain's Dad. Although apparently distracted and obsessed with his computers, he does love Lain. As Lain goes deeper into the WIRED, his concerns grow. Miho Iwakura: Lain's Mom. She seems distant towards her children but shows affection for Yasuo when they are alone. Mika Iwakura: Lain's older sister. Although self-absorbed, she nevertheless becomes concerned for Lain as her younger sister goes deeper into the WIRED. Alice: Lain's true friend. Alice is the only one who tries to keep Lain grounded in reality. She is also the one that always sticks up for Lain and tries to keep her included in the group. As they grow closer together their friendship is what helps Lain to hold on to her sanity. Julie: A part of the group of Lain's school friends, she nevertheless is unsure about Lain. She often makes thoughtless remarks about Lain that Alice needs to correct. She is also one of the other school children to receive an email from Chisa, although she was too frightened to answer it. Reika: Also a part of Lain's group of school friends, she usually stays neutral. She is interested in rumors and gossip on the WIRED and likes to ask Lain if she had heard of anything new. Chisa Yomoda: The girl who commits suicide in the beginning of the series. She is very much like Lain, shy and quiet. Although they attended the same school, Chisa and Lain never met in life. However, it is the email that she sends after her death that opens a whole new life for Lain. Taro: Usually hanging out at Cyberia with his two friends, Myu-Myu and Masayuki, Taro considers himself quite the ladies man, often flirting with Lain. Nevertheless, he is also very knowledgeable about the WIRED, Navis, the Knights and so on. He helps Lain in her investigations Men In Black: Also referred to as the MIB. They are a mysterious, shadowy group of strongmen hired by the Tachibana General Laboratories to observe and protect Lain. Often seen with lasersights, Carl and his fellow MIB are often seen watching Lain from a distance. The Knights: A shadowy organization of hackers. At first, Lain is intrigued by their reputation. Later, she comes to believe that they are responsible for the suicides and deaths. Eiri Masami: An ex-researcher for Tachibana General Laboratories. Fearing that Eiri's research and development of hidden protocols would cause serious problems with the WIRED Tachibana fires him. However this only frees Eiri to pursue his true purpose: to bring down the walls between the WIRED and the real world. Parental Notes: This series has a TV rating of TV-PG (V). For the DVDs and videos, the distributor (Pioneer) recommends that this series is for audiences 16 and over. Needless to say, this series is meant for mature children, teens and adults. There is some strong language, nudity (although it is done tastefully) and some violence that can be realistic. That being said, the warning is more for the mature themes explored in this series; they will be disturbing to young children, especially those under 7. These themes (the meaning of life, death, suicide, sex, etc.) are targeted for an adult audience, so please use your discretion.moreless
