Lain

Lain considers the virtual life with a stunning combination of artful plot and transfiguring visuals.

I showed this to Amy - she doesn't typically take to Anime, but she's gone out of her way to watch as much Lain as possible.

An animated television series in Japan (where is our TV like this?!) Lain is available on DVD. Here's a LainSite.
