Paranoia Agent - Complete Collection (English)
A psychological thriller that strives for social commentary, PARANOIA AGENT is an anime series from director Satoshi Kon (PERFECT BLUE, MILLENNIUM ACTRESS).

Utilizing an episodic structure, PARANOIA AGENT focuses on the attacks made by the serial assaulter Shounen Bat, a mysterious adolescent who beats random victims with a baseball bat and quickly rollerskates away. As the detectives charged with investigating the Shounen Bat assaults find only confusion, the city itself threatens to explode with pent up rage, frustration, and paranoia.
