Yuki Kano has it all: fame, wealth, the world at her feet. There's also something very wrong with her... from time to time, she's totally unable to sing (which, for a pop star, is not good). Enter Bosujima, a "psycho diver" with the capability to enter people's heads and straighten out what's wrong with them. Well, most of the time, anyway.

I was very surprised when I purchased this after only watching the trailer. Usually, it's been about 50/50 when I do this, but this one is very hard to find in eng dub. I thought it was very good. Older anime style from 90's with good, original story. Pretty gorey violence that was typical of the Akira, Ninja Scroll type. Short 50 minute OVA, but worth watching. The main character dives into people's brains and tries to stop them from commiting crimes or to get info. It has nothing to do with deep sea diving. It's sorta like a cop drama, almost like Jonny Mneumonic ...

Mixed Feelings

My quest to watch the obscure and the weird continues with Psycho Diver! This 45 minute, standalone OVA is one of the most skull fucking insane anime I've ever witnessed. It has some really good ideas that were pretty damn creative for the time, but the execution is all over the place.

Background history:

This wasn't based on a manga. It wasn't based on a light novel, video game, or anything else. Anime industry veteran Mamoru Kanbe just went to Studio Madhouse with a script and pitched this as a 45 minute OVA. Madhouse accepted and we got this blessing of insanity. In America, it was ...

Psycho Diver is an anime original 1997 Madhouse OVA that runs only about 50 minutes long, and I feel kind of bad giving this such a low rating, but it really is the sloppy rush-job you'd expect from a short OVA without any source material.

It's styled like an old-fashioned noir: a somewhat ugly main character who looks like Golgo 13, the phoned-in "love interest," deep shadows and grimy imagery, a bunch of tough guys and assassins; and a crime plot involving two intertwined subplots that probably would have been better served as separate scripts with such a short running time. We have a weird ...
