Synopsis

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.

Overview:

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 read more

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 read more

From what I know of "Psycho Pass", watching Psycho Diver might not make the premise look as unique as it once seemed. While "Psycho Pass" seems to have technology in it that reads and detects a person's psyche wirelessly to see if they're sane, Psycho Diver features technology that also allows one to more literally see another person's sanity, but without such instantaneous results and instead by reading into another person's mind. The device is similar looking to the machine in "The Matrix". It's a relatively interesting idea for future technology, or just plain science fiction, that could lead to some interesting stories while in read more

Watched with eng. dub. Was a 7-8 rated movie for me. Very Impacting with their message(the main song)

This anime was hard to rate. On one hand: the story kind of made sense; did allow for revisits to better understand the movie; great art considering time frame it was made. In the other hand: art was not current with life to date, there was still some confusion with the ending at least for me.

p.s.

To better appreciate this movie i suggest reading on the back story of some actors like the person who played Paige in the TV charmed.

perhaps after viewing the movie and getting some inside read more
