When I first found this series, I was intrigued by its' name 'Agitated Screams of Maggots'. Then I was drawn to the grotesque and and cynical picture of the old man residing in the place where the title art usually was displayed. Expecting extreme mindfuck and irrevocable nightmares, I plunged myself into the gory screamofest...and emerged confused and and very VERY disturbed, If you intend to put this on your 'plan to watch' list, I strongly advise you to be fully aware that this music video (if you can call it that) has human bisection, extreme portrayals of human genitals, tons of guts and read more

Let me get this point clear. {In my opinion...} "Agitated Screams of Maggots" is NOT an anime. It is an animated music video. I don't believe that since it's "animated" it should be counted as an anime. There's a thick line between the two... Notice this: those who haven't been through the ever-changing DIR EN GREY timeline (especially during their earlier stages) will be highly disturbed by the art, message, and song.

This video was released in 2006 and during that time DIR EN GREY was still in its "ero-guro" days where they mostly sang and portrayed sexually grotesque themes. Judging from the lyrics, this read more

I don't know whether you would consider this an anime or not, but if so, then this is an abomination. Not only is the imagery appalling; the music is complete with incoherent lyrics, and obnoxious screaming. The video makes no sense I don't see how anyone can think otherwise. This isn't artistic or an imaginative piece of work. It is a deplorable music video that should not exist. But sadly, it does. And I wish I could un-see it completely. Unless you want to watch this out of curiosity or as just a challenge; avoid it like the plague.

Dir En Grey is something of a controversial band. Since its conception more than a decade ago, it had for a long time been at the forefront of the Visual Kei movement in challenging the norms of music, sexuality, and morality. Of course, the distinction between meaningful social critique and unsubstantial shock value is not always clear-cut, as is the case with the anime in question. Agitated Screams of Maggots is a single released by Dir En Grey in 2006. This anime, or music video to be more precise, was released alongside the single featuring a hand-drawn story to complement the song.
