Must be Tokyo Babylon 1
28 January 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Apparently there are several different mangas as part of the Tokyo Babylon series, connected only by the names of the investigative government agencies.

The one I saw was about a psychic who looks, dresses, and talks like Michael Jackson. Two series of murders occur: one in a high-rise construction site, the other in the subway. The psychic's powers are never clearly revealed, and his involvement in criminal investigations is more as a catalyst than a hero (though he is brave). Part two is much more interesting than part one, as it has a couple of very solid characters (the mother and daughter psychics).

Like most mangas, very little happens, and it happens slowly. The English translation and voices are quite good. The art is ok, and the actual plots are better than most. At least there's no mecha, and a minimum of psycho-protoplasmic tentacles.

If you're looking for titillation, it ain't here.

I wonder if anybody will ever read this. I wonder if anybody else will ever comment on this film. I wonder if I will get a life soon...
