An interesting anime show made by Satoshi Kohn
27 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Satoshi Kohn has made a lot of great anime film's like, "Tokyo Godfather's" and"Millennium Actress". But in 2004, he created an anime show titled, "Paranoia Agent".

The story is about a kid named, Lil Slugger, that goes around Tokyo assaulting people at night with his golden Baseball Bat. Now, the Police have to stop Lil Slugger.

The story is great and what make's this show really great is that, in each episode, the people that get assaulted are facing problem's in reality. Like the character, Tsusiko, she's struggling to make the perfect stuffed animal and sometime's her talking stuffed animal, Maromi, help's her. Also, some episode's have good scare's.

The only problem I have with this show is that episode's 8, 9 and 10 were mostly filler episodes.

But overall, "Paranoia Agent", is a great anime show to watch. Even if you're a fan of Satoshi Kohn's work.
