| Dark and a little twisted what you'd expect
Insanity, violence and paranormal activity. This is what we've all come to expect from the late great Satoshi Kon creator of such lovely films as Perfect Blue and Paprika. In this event we have a whole anime series called paranoia agent which is a playground for sex, violence and insanity.

The story starts out with a girl that is attacked by an unknown assailant and then the story goes along to reflect the minds of society's 'victims' leading to a very odd but spectacular climax.

The voice acting is well done on both ends. I preferred the English dub on this one as the voices were well done and I liked the translations better. The sub was very well performed but nothing new for me. I feel that you will be happy weather you are a sub or dub fan.

the story starts off very well drawing you in and maintains a very high level of intensity that stays with out throughout. The individual stories are unique and for the most part very interesting not allowing for you to take time and lose interest.

Of course there are down sides...Sometimes it can get confusing and you start to think "eh? what was that about?" The story also starts to flow off on a rather odd tangent that I feel was a tad unnecessary.

In the end Paranoia Agent is a masterwork with minor but noticeable flaws.
