Paranoia Agent is very different from any of your average anime. It can also be pretty hard to keep track of, and there are some parts that are very... strange. The anime could also sometimes be trippy and disordered and also be labeled as creepy. In MY opinion I do not believe it was scary, but as a warning you should be prepared for creepy things.

Story:
If you ever watch Hell girl (Jigoku Shoujo) its something like that. There are a whole bunch of one shots but eventually they come together (sort of). A boy, Shounen bat in subtitles and lil slugger in dubbed, read more

Title: Paranoia Agent

Anime: The animation production for Paranoia Agent was done by Madhouse (famous for work on Death Note and Paradise Kiss), and was directed by Satoshi Kon (famous for Perfect Blue and Paprika). It aired on Japanese television from February 2nd, 2004 to May 18th, 2004. Geneon (soon to be defunct) licensed it Stateside, and the fourth and final volume was released May 10th, 2005. The dubbed version also had a run on Adult Swim, the first of which began on May 28th, 2005, and an encore run on June 6th, 2006.

Story: The first episode kicks off with character designer (Sugi) read more

Recommendations

Another one of Satoshi Kon's masterpieces that uses a lot of the same animation style as Paprika!
Perception and reality: the divergence between what one perceives and what might exist is at the heart of both series. Paranoia Agent follows a more psychological approach to unravel the relation between these vectors while Serial Experiments Lain has a more philosophical take. It is likely that those who enjoy abstract deconstructions of identity will appreciate these exercises in surreal existentialism that are Lain and Paranoia Agent.
