Perfect Blue was a decent 7/10 and Paranoia Agent was a 3. Hopefully one of his other works will be mindblowingly good because I don't see the greatness yet.

Perfect Blue is a masterpiece but Paprika is just a convoluted mess, 10/10 and 5/10 respectivelly.

Subtract one point from each and we're in agreement. Paprika seemed like a case of a skilled director adapting from a trash source though.

Paprika, Paranoia agent are overrated anime that aren't very good. Perfect blue is borderline average
