Despera Scans

I really fucking hate to back away from an obligation, but I know my limitations as a translator, and this is it. I promised to translate the readable magazine scans on Despera (a.k.a. Serial Experiments Lain 2), but they're just too intense. I do know some details:
  • The interview scan (1269334010682) was taken when the team announced that they had reached the halfway point
  • 1269333638174 (above) is a short story on Ain. Apparently she talks to some stranger about the theory of relativity. Ain = Ainsutain (Einstein)?
I re-hosted the scans here. Only a few are readable, and I partially translated the interview.


  1. It would be interesting to know if "Ain" is refering to the kabalistic idea of "Ain"...
