An elementary school kid dubbed with the title "shounen bat" or "lil slugger" has been going around attacking people with his bent, golden bat. Now, two detectives are investigating so they can stop this kid from making any more attacks, but they will find out soon enough... that this case is much more than they expected.
13 Episode

This series is good, true, I was a bit confused and began putting it off for a while. But after some episodes, you start to get whats going on a get addicted to it. Its very unexpected, I didn't really find it that scary though. Oh, and at whoever hasn't seen it, I highly recommend it. Its also directed a well known Anime director, Satoshi Kon. Well known for his movies maybe you've heard of Paprika, Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers etc. So anyone else seen this series?

It's a good series definitely but the animation is TERRIBLY inconsistant towards the end its bad animation when it was awesome at the beginning. Definately has flaws but still I like this series and watched it twice. But don't get me started on episode 5. Worst episode of anything ever. Just please, don't get me started.

I loved it, but I don't know what's so confusing about it while your in the middle. When you in the middle of Paranoia Agent, it's simply a bunch of events happening that don't make sense at this point. It all comes together in the last few episodes where they sort of explain what is really going on.

For those that are still confused

The point was that no one was ever attacked. Tsukiko Sagi lied about being attacked, she really just hit herself. Since she was such a famous person, the idea of a kid with a bent bat was spread around and other people used that same idea when they hurt themselves. The concept is in the name. The Paranoia is being spread around. Lil Slugger didn't kill anyone, they just commited suicide. I think everyone understands from what I already said and theres no need to be more thorough.

Yeh that's the simple explanation it goes even deeper than that though there's heaps of other deep stuff in the show, that's all I can be bothered with workin' out, though.
