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.

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

its sad that this ova is such an anigma,when it really deserves praise.I watched it many years ago on the former action channel and its still awesome.for an ova that is less than 50 mionutes long ,it is filled with so much quality.Its about a guy who by his profession is called a psycho diver because he dives into peoples mind to uncover any mental trauma or disorder and remove it.one day he is force to come out of retirement after getting a special case of a singer who is suffering from a serious disorder,he later finds out that this case took read more
