Detectives search for the truth behind the Paranormal

by -

This is one unconventional series by the late Satoshi Kon, a series where 13 people's lives are linked to a number of attacks by a bizarre character known as 'Lil' Slugger' or 'Shonen Bat Boy'. But expect a side story or two which are equally strange with subtle humor and messaging points...weird!

I admit this series had me hooked, not only was it very mysterious and involves a psychological and suspenseful narrative, but I found the anime irresistible to watch. That's because 'Shonen Bat Boy' only attacks people in a certain emotional state or predicament(s)...perplexing to say the least.

From the moment two police detectives investigate these attacks, your then uncertain just what is real or surreal throughout this series, and yet the ending turns out surprising and unexpected which I fancied to the genius of Satoshi Kon.

Enjoy in 1080p and 16:9 video format.

Finally, an absolute must buy series

by -

Don't let the 3 star fool you as this is a 5 star anime and one that truly deserved a blu ray release. However, this isn't a true blu ray release as it's 1080i, which is in actuality 540P. So, this is more of a DVD upconvert than it is a true 720P or 1080P release. So, if you don't already have it, then it's an absolute must buy, in my book. A true masterpiece that deserved a true 1080P release, or at least give us 720P, but instead we get another Funimation 1080i release. So, for future buyers, just know that it's basically a 540P release, so you won't get disappointed the moment the series starts playing. 5 stars for the anime itself but, 3.5 stars for the lack of a true 1080P transfer.
