I've been going on about Paranoia Agent (or Mousou dairinin) for a little while here so I though I should just make a thread about it.

This series is by Satoshi Kon who also directed Perfect Blue, Toyko Godfathers and Millennium Actress.

This is a great series that centers around a character named Shonen bat (or lil' slugger for the dub watchers). The first four episodes individually tell the story of four of Shonen bats victums. Especially, one who made a famous character akin to Hello Kitty, and it just keeps getting stranger from there.

I can't go into to too much detail because it would give away some spoilers and this anime must been seen to be believed. .... the quote below is an excerpt from the Wikipedia article about it, originally posted by Rosicrucian here.
QUOTE
Paranoia Agent (妄想代理人, Mōsō Dairinin?) is a Japanese anime television series created by director Satoshi Kon and produced by Madhouse about a social phenomenon in Musashino, Tokyo caused by a juvenile serial assailant named Lil' Slugger (Shōnen Bat, or Bat Boy in the original Japanese version). The plot relays between a large cast of people affected in some way by the phenomenon; usually Lil' Slugger's victims or the detectives assigned to apprehend him. As each character becomes the focus of the story, details are revealed about their secret lives and the truth about Lil' Slugger.



So if you like weird anime and enjoyed any of Satoshi Kons past works then check it out.

I've read about this anime before I found out that Adult Swim was going to show it. I thought it sounded interesting and definetely weird! I'm looking forward to seeing it!

I was kind of suprised that Adult Swim is going to show it. I shouldn't be though, after FLCL I shouldn't be suprised by anything.

Well I shouldn't say that, if they started showing Urosukidouji I would be really suprised. laugh.gif

It's going to premiere on Adult Swim this Saturday at midnight. I'm really looking forward to this series. I saw a commercial on AS, it looks really dark and creepy. It's going to be on after Samurai Champloo, so I think that will be a solid hour for AS.

This is one anime I had to watch twice. It's quite interesting. Plus the music is fantastic. I hope they show the intro, at least.

I hope so too. The theme song is one of the best parts. But they are usually pretty good about showing the openings.

AS stands for Adult Swim which is a block on Cartoon Network that comes on at 11 pm. There is a lot of anime shown during AS along with comedy shows like Family Guy and Futurama.

I was pretty boring for while and then all of the sudden it was real spooky. That was cool cause I got caught off guard a little. This first episode was ok but the boring parts were extremely boring.

It's one of those shows that gets better and better once you watch it all the way through. Just keep with it, because it gets far more interesting.

This anime is weird, but I have seen weirder ones (like FLCL, which AS is showing again!! yay!). I liked it though. Was a bit boring, but I'll keep watching.
