When the detectives interrogate the boy arrested for the Lil' Slugger attacks, he claims to be a "Holy Warrior" who has only begun to help those waiting to be saved. However, he also only claims two of the five attacks! Just as the detectives begin to find witnesses and think they are uncovering the truth, a rash of attacks fuel the hysteria - especially the two inside the police station! As the police begin to doubt their own beliefs, even suicidal citizens begin to believe a golden bat can solve their problems.
"..this 13-episode project dives straight into its nightmares and never comes out, providing probably the most upsetting and unexpected TV anime thrills since Hideaki Anno's Neon Genesis Evangelion" - Midnight Eye
"Even just four episodes in, it's safe to say that Satoshi Kon's directorial foray into serialized anime was a huge success." - Anime News Network
"Paranoia Agent is the kind of series that leaves all the stereotypical trappings of the bulk of anime series and tosses them aside." - Anime on DVD
"Very highly recommended." - Anime on DVD
