Voice: I'll say this only to you.
Voice: You are the only one who doesn't know what's happening in this society...
Title: SOCIETY Layer 07
Lain: No, that's not true.
Lain: I'm only looking.
Lain: In the Wired...I change.
Lain: I'm not sure.
Lain: Who is it?
Mika: a... e...
Lain: My sister?
Lain: My sister is different nowadays.
Lain: I don't agree.
Lain: I don't know.
Nezumi: I know that the Wired and the real world are connected by a line.
Nezumi: I can exist anywhere.
Nezumi: My body is everywhere, I can send my consciousness anywhere.
Secretary: It's time for dinner with E-Motor Consortium.
Takuyoshi: I'll go downstairs in 3 minutes.
Takuyoshi: What will we play next?
FatMan: Hehehe, here!
FatMan: Hehehe, yes, you idiot!
FatMan: I'm better than you. Hehehe.
Lain: The real world isn't real at all.
Alice: Lain, are you alright?
Lain: What is it?
Alice: Lain, you seem like you're becoming more like your old self again.
Alice: We hung out with you in some places because we wanted you to open up more.
Alice: We really hoped you would.
Alice: But, if you weren't enjoying it, I'll apologize.
Lain: Yes, I was. I was enjoying it...
Lain: I was...
Lain: Alice, thank you for worrying about me.
Alice: We're friends, after all. Bye.
Navi: This afternoon, the firewall in the Information Agency was crashed due to someone's cracking.
Navi: Now, the information in the Wired is mixed up.
Navi: Please be aware that although this news was sent now, it will be received tomorrow or yesterday.
Man'sVoice: I've heard that it was done by the Knights.
Man'sVoice: What is the Knights?
Woman'sVoice: The Knights. "Knights of the Eastern Calculus".
Woman'sVoice: They are very influential in the Wired. There is no information about the members.
Woman'sVoice: Not only do they disrupt the information in the Wired, but they also develop and distribute illegal information devices.
Man'sVoice: I've heard that Lain was targeted.
Man's Voice: Who is Lain?
Woman'sVoice: "Lain", 0 results found.
Man's Voice: I haven't seen Lain for a long time.
Man's Voice: Who's Lain?
Man's Voice: A girl!
Man's Voice: A girl?
Man's Voice: She's strong!
Man's Voice: What's strong about her?
Man's Voice: Her metaphorisation. Her will. Her power. The light in her eyes. Her existence.
Text: Have you ever seen the lain?
Text: Live in monotony for the rest of the life.
Text: God bless you.
Text: Who are you?
Man's Voice: May I ask a question?
Man's Voice: What?
Man's Voice: Are you a member of the Knights?
Carrier: It's for you.
Shoko: Oh, I'll get my stamp.
Shoko: Sorry to keep you waiting.
Shoko: What is it?
Carrier: Is it the newest NAVI? I also want it.
Shoko: I bought it with my side job.
Carrier: I can't buy it even though I'm working this job.
Shoko: Work harder.
Carrier: Yes. I have to work more. I'll teach you if you want.
Shoko: Hmm, will you teach me?
Carrier: Yes, I'm good at it.
Shoko: Do you always tempt married women like this?
Carrier: Not at all... Yes.
Shou: Hi, I'm back.
Shoko: Thank you.
Shou: May I go to Kin-ya's house?
Shoko: You can play a game with him through the net.
Shou: But, I want to ask him how to play it.
Shoko: The Wired is the same as the real world.
MIB: Iwakura Lain-san. Will you come with us?
MIB: We will not force you to come. We are only asking you.
MIB: We will not harm you physically.
Lain: Who are you?
MIB: We will tell you when you come with us.
Nezumi: I don't want to stay in a place like this.
Nezumi: I can do this. Look!
Nezumi: I'm breaking the barrier between the real world and the Wired.
Nezumi: Please. I have enough skills to be a member of the Knights.
Nezumi: Please let me join the Knights.
Nezumi: Praise me, I found your secret channel by myself.
Nezumi: Please let me join.
Nezumi: Who is it?
Sign: Tachibana Labs. Shinbashi Office.
Man: Come here. I can't make the firewall at the head office recognise this machine. I did everything I could using applications.
Man: It seems impossible to do with this old-style NAVI.
Man: I've been using this one for a long time, so I don't want to change to a newer NAVI.
Man: I'm so old. If I were young like you...
Lain: That jumper...
Lain: Pull this...and this jumper off.
Man: Did it work?
Nezumi: Lain! Are you a member of Knights?
Nezumi: Aren't you, Lain? I didn't know that you are!
Nezumi: Wait, wait! It was so amazing what you did using KIDS.
Nezumi: But I have better ideas. Please, let me join the Knights.
Man: There are no national barriers in the Wired.
Man: There are too many anarchists who are talking nonsense.
Man: And there are too many fools who believe that a prank on society is a revolution.
Man: But, the Knights seem to be different from them.
Man: I didn't know you were aware of them. Your existence in the Wired is very unnatural.
Man: The Knights seem to have a special interest in you.
Lain: What ...are you saying...?
Man: Knights. You have talked to them directly.
Lain: But... I... What...
Man: Anyway, they want to use you for something.
Man: We have to stop them at any cost.
Lain: You... What? Who are you?
Nezumi: I'll keep it secret, of course.
Nezumi: I know you believe in Deus. I'll obey him too.
Nezumi: But is it true? I can't believe that there is a God in the Wired now.
Nezumi: But I will learn more about it after I join. I'll learn to believe.
Nezumi: You? You come to invite me!
Man: Name? You don't need our name.
Man: They and I have no name.
Man: Tell me, Iwakura Lain. Are you the same person as "Lain of the Wired"?
Man: Who are you?
Lain: I... I...
Man: Are your parents really your parents?
Man: Is your sister really your sister?
Lain: What are you saying? Of course...
Man: When is your father's birthday?
Lain: My dad...is...
Man: When is your mother's birthday?
Man: When did your parents marry? Did they marry for love? Or was it an arranged marriage?
Lain: They are...
Man: Why don't you know? Have they never told you?
Man: Have you never celebrated any birthdays with your family?
Man: When and where were you born?
Lain: Stop it...
Man: You don't know anything about yourself.
Man: Are you all right? You really know nothing at all...
Lain(w): Shut up! You're only asking about trivial matters. Nonsense!
Man: Are you "Lain of the wired"?
Lain(w): Yes, so what?
Man: You are aware that the border between the Wired and the real world began to break without devices.
Lain(w): So what?
Man: We think it is dangerous.
Lain(w): It's interesting.
Lain(w): Let me go.
Lain(w): What do you want?
MIB: You yourself are dangerous.
Man: She is right. Something interesting is beginning. Let's just watch.
Shou: What's up, Mom?
Shoko: Let's play together!
Shou: Did you finish your work?
Shoko: Of course. I'm the best.
Shoko: I'll beat you, Shou-chan.
Shoko: Prepare yourself. Here!
