Why do I do this? I recently covered Ghost Hound, a title I found very hard to review, and here I am writing about Paranoia Agent, an anime that I find even harder to talk about. Sigh Mousou Dairinin is a series that works way more on a conceptual level than at its execution, and it’s also the definition of a series for an acquired taste, as its writing is not very good for the hardest to please... read more

La premisa es interesante, el villano es una representación muy buena al tema que trata la serie. los personajes con linealidad tienen un muy bien conflicto y resolución del mismo. Su animación es bastante dinámica, un estilo muy característico de las obras de Satoshi Kon. Sin embargo, en cuanto a algunos capítulos no hay mucha relación con la trama principal.

Mousou Dairinin is a series that works way more on a conceptual level than at its execution, and it’s also the definition of a series for an acquired taste, as its writing is not very good for the hardest to please most critical viewers, and its narrative is almost unapproachable for a casual audience that just wants to have a good time. Also, being a work with Satoshi Kon in it raises the expectation high in terms of directing and atmosphere, and only one of them is truly achieved in this series. It doesn’t help that this is a show that’s best to watch after you already watched all the movies” read more

"Alright, I know what you're thinking: "But it was made by Satoshi Kon, director of Millennium Actress and Tokyo Godfathers!" That is true, and I should see those movies. Paranoia Agent isn't just uninteresting to me, but it is also an eyesore half the time. Look no further than its intensely creepy opening. But the final nail in its coffin for me was the twist at the end. Why couldn't the writers come up with a more compelling twist than what we got? This is why we can't have nice things. But I "
