The idea of a psychological manipulative anime isn't uncommon; many have attempted, but few succeed, likely due to the sheer difficulty of effectively portraying and balancing its themes, symbolism and plot. A complex and multi-layered experience usually requires an equal or greater amount of effort to make it work. Perfect Blue is Satoshi Kon's directorial debut, and it is actually my favourite of the director's works - who, unfortunately, has passed on. Few anime series or movies have managed to not only entertain me, but impact me in the same way that Perfect Blue has, which succeeds in everything it sets out to do, from read more

Strap in for a roller coaster ride through the human mind.

As always, my reviews are spoiler free.

You know you have done something right when someone can completely associate your name with a genre. For Satoshi Kon, that genre is Psychological Thriller (or mindf**k, if you prefer). All his works (perhaps with the exception of Tokyo Godfathers, which is still fantastic) explore this genre differently, some deeper than others, but from Paranoia Agent to Millennium Actress he clearly shows his abilities as a director. Of all his works, I think his first, Perfect Blue, is my favorite.

Recommendations

Dark and edgy philosophical and psuedo-spiritual undertones resonate powerfully beneath the derma of an expertly animated and artistically executed series that explores human pyschology and how individuals cope with the pressure of living.
Psychological thriller movies Directed by Satoshi Kon. They both blur the lines between fantasy and reality.

Opening Theme

"Ai no Tenshi" by Misa, Emiko Furakawa and Mie Shimizu

Ending Theme

"Season" by M-Voice
