Synopsis

Shibuya, Japan, 2008. Takumi Nishijou, a high school student at the Private Suimei Academy, one day hears about the 'New Gen' murders that have been occurring around the city. Although dismissing the subject because it doesn't involve him, Takumi begins to experience strange mishaps around him, from a horrific picture he received while on his PC, to a mysterious Pink-Haired girl standing at a murder scene.

From there on Takumi struggles to cope with the events unfolding around him, and is soon unaware of what is real or a delusion. As his fate opens up before him, the perpetrator behind the 'New Gen' events attempts to find him, leading him into a world where nothing is as it seems.

Ever since Neon Genesis Evangelion's debut in the late 90's philosophically charged mind-frags have been a staple of anime. Many of these mind-twisting series are pretty brilliant, despite being exceedingly obtuse. Chaos;HEAd is definitely not one of these. Filled with nonsensical metaphysical babble, flimsy internal logic, and clearly not as smart as it thinks it is; this show is the perfect example of what happens when a psychological thriller goes completely wrong.

The show follows a socially inept (to put it VERY lightly) and barely sane anime obsessed recluse named Takumi Nishijou as he is pulled into a reality bending battle with the fate of the read more

Introduction:
Chaos;Head is the most incompetent anime I've ever seen. I'll just put that out right here at the beginning. It's a prime example of how to mess up a potentially good premise. Now in case you were wondering, Chaos;Head is based off the now famous visual novel Chaos;Head created by 5pb x NitroPlus, who also created the popular Steins;Gate and Robotic;Notes visuals novels. Due to its popularity in Japan, it was eventually made into an anime by masters of anime Madhouse studios, and aired from October 9th, 2008 to December 25, 2008 (Wow it finished on Christmas Day, what a present that would be).

Recommendations

Both series promise murder and suspense, but where Chaos;Head fails to follow through, Higurashi delivers.
THe main characters in both shows live a hikikomori lifestyle until a mysterious girl 'welcomes' them to the outside world. Both characters also display many of the positive schizophrenic symptoms.

Opening Theme

"F.D.D" by Kanako Ito

Ending Theme

''Super Special'' by Kagami Seira
