Paranoia Agent *SPOILERS*


Recommended Posts

Well, so while recovering from getting my wisdom teeth taken out I sat down, well... lied down mostly, and watched this anime. I have to say I was very impressed with it... but unfortunately medication, tiredness, and spitting blood out of my mouth every few minutes kind of didn't give me a perfect experience in watching it. Yes, I got the idea that Shonen Bat (Or Lil Slugger as he is called in the dub, which I did not watch) was an illusion created by that one girl (My real problem with watching it as I did was that I missed the names of just about every character) to hide the fact it was her fault her dog died 10 years ago or something. Now, my real questions are: 1) Was the Shonen Bat who was arrested real? (If he was, I'm assuming it was some kid desperate to be a celebrity) 2) Was every Shonen Bat attack a suicide attempt or were some or were none? 3) Did, once word got out, people just use him as an excuse for their own mistakes?

Again, I think I understand the series... just want to make sure. And if this post is kind of tough to read... I'm still on medication.

1) Yes he was real, he was an insane kid who blurred the line between fantasy and reality and dressed like Shounen Bat.

2) At least one was, but there were a couple that were actually done by the illusion (or so I gathered). He was created as an illusion but became real.

3) I think that's up for interpretation, though I would lean towards yes.
