Such an interesting show. It's an anime that appears on Saturday evenings, or Early Sunday mornings. Synopsis: An elementary student is accused of attacking people on the street with a baseball bat. His victims are people who are trapped in there day to day lives; stress filled job, family problems etc. The story is the main focus of the show, that is not to say that the animation doesn't look good, but when the first episode is over you will appreciate story. The first point of view is a young boy who has everything going right in his life, but then he feels trapped. His life is perfect, but then it's not. He's not used to this, so he becomes very bitter towards his classmates. One in particular is another boy who was once an outcast, but now is accepted. They traded places in the social ladder. The protagonist hates how life has treated him and then ... people think he is the boy who is attacking everyone on the street because he plays baseball and often carries a bat. Yikes, the show is directed by Satoshi Kon. To say that his take on human life is demented is an understatment. His world is full of prostitution, incest, murder and the like. He's directed some other movies and they wouldn't be accepted in any other media beside anime/manga. It isn't a show for the kiddies. When you watch an episode keep in mind that the show is dissecting moments and then re-arranging them in order to not tell the full story all at once. http://www.paranoiaagent.com/# Here is the official website. http://www.adultswim.com/shows/paranoia/index.html And here is the site to the adult swim schedule. Summary: Paranoia Agent is not an anime about action, but about human self-destruction. It turns out that the idea of all of this is nothing more than mundane living and a way out. The show has some low points: the overwhelming japanese - sometimes references are made, but you don't know what they are talking about and the show is a bit monotonous when it comes to developing the plot. Everything else is a cute little package of destruction. Just to leave you with this: think of a prostitute who doesn't know she is a "lady of the night" but instead she is a private tutor by day and when she wakes up the next morning she doesn't remember what happend. See ya in the funny pages.
