Storyline

A beautiful young pop singer can no longer sing. When a Psycho Diver attempts to fix her problem by entering her mind, his head implodes. Another hardboiled Psycho Diver is recruited for the job and he soon realizes that the girl harbors within her brain a powerful psychokinetic energy that the head priestess of a sinister cult the girl used to belong to is using to manipulate her, effectively driving her insane.

The stormy seas of her mind
31 January 2008 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

A "psycho diver" is somebody who can treat people with psychological problems by entering their inner world. When a female pop singer has a mental problem and feel she can't sing anymore, such a psycho diver is called for help. The case turns out to be unusual and dangerous...

"Psycho Diver" has not only a rather original story and characters in whose destiny the audience is really interested in. It also has a good visual style that is neither too freaky nor too dull, catchy music fitting into the story which is based on a singer, after all, dark atmosphere and even good dialogs. The hero's attitude towards his talent, navigating successfully through the stormy seas in other people's heads, is similar to the understatement of a film noir detective: it's a job that needs to be done, even if it is somewhat dirty. Certainly more sympathetic than a boasting genius. To sum it up, "Psycho Diver" is an excellent anime that, except for some unnecessary bloodshed, seemed not to have any weaknesses to me.
