Perfect Blue or Paprika choose to exploit the thorny topic of Japanese society and inspire Hollywood filmmakers. Those anime series of Kon Satoshi are not safe for kids.

Perfect Blue

This is a Kon Satoshi horror-directed anime directed, based on the novel Perfect Blue: Complete Metamorphosis by Yoshikazu Takeuchi. The film revolves around Mima who is a member of the Japanese idol group. Mima decided to leave the group to become an actor. However, when she was in her first role, Mina became a victim of a stalker.

The creation of director Kon Satoshi in Perfect Blue made the audience really confused. The film mixes the boundaries between reality and the illusion world of the characters, making it difficult for viewers to feel right from the first view.

American movie critics claim Perfect Blue is too stylized, but its core mystery is always attractive as visual theater arts. In addition, although the way to exploit and select the theme of this anime is somewhat similar to that of movies, Kon Satoshi says that he is proud to be an animator and Perfect Blue has many interesting details like an anime.

Director Darren Aronofsky was really attracted by Perfect Blue. He met Kon Satoshi and bought the film’s rights to rebuild in the famous movie – Requiem for a Dream. Another Darren Aronofsky film, Black Swan, also has many details and the idea is inspired by Perfect Blue.

Paprika

This is another anime by Kon Satoshi in the psychological horror genre. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Yasutaka Tsutsui. Movie content is set in the future in the world when scientists invented a device that helps people penetrate each other’s dreams. From this, human life is turned upside down. Reality gradually disappears while the world in each person’s mind is constantly expanding with unlimited imagination.

With such a problem, Paprika has created a complex story, which has become a big challenge for those who want to experience this anime as well as understand the meaning behind it.

If you read the content of Paprika, the audience might be familiar with this anime because there are many details similar to Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Although not in the same scenario, many scenes in Inception made the audience think that the director was inspired by Paprika.
