Funimation delighted a lot of fans a couple of years ago with their pickup of the Satoshi Kon directed anime series Paranoia Agent, which had been out of print for a long time. The series is currently streaming on their service and we’ve had a home video release roll out as well that made a lot of fans happy as well.
With Anime Expo happening this coming weekend, it’s been revealed that the entire TV series is getting a theatrical showing at The Secret Movie Club Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 2nd, 2022. If you’re going to be in the area and want to check it out, the details are here.
Check out our Ten Years Later look at the property.
Paranoia Agent was released by Geneon Entertainment and the last box set hit back in the summer of 2005, which runs for several hundred dollars through most auction houses these days.
Plot concept: “When the darkness overcomes the heart, Little Slugger appears….” After the first victim’s story, the police felt the overly stressed woman was having a breakdown and lied to cover-up for some crime. However, after the third and fourth attacks upon unrelated victims led to the same description of a young attacker with a golden baseball bat and in-line skates, the police had to wonder- is the “Lil’ Slugger” real or a sinister phantom?
