This morning, Funimation posted to their blog that they will begin streaming the thriller Paranoia Agent by Satoshi Kon and Madhouse on their FunimationNow service starting Tuesday, February 4th, 2020.
Funimation will also make all 13 episodes available for purchase on Blu-Ray and DVD later this year.
In Paranoia Agent, the citizens of Musashino are terrorized by a young boy on rollerskates, wielding a broken bat. Victims “Lil’ Slugger” are left giving vague descriptions of his appearance to the detectives investigating the attacks. However, Lil’ Slugger’s aggression carries a pattern, and each person assaulted by him is targeted because of their own personal tragedy.
Paranoia Agent aired originally in January 2004, and was released on DVD the same year by Geneon in North America.
