Just finished marathoning this. Great series, although it did kind of disappoint during the episodes 'Happy Family Planning', 'ETC' and 'Mellow Maromi', which were practically no more than filler episodes. They were good in their own right (okay, except ETC), but they distract from the awesomeness of the main storyline. Fortunately, the series fully picked up again at episode 12, giving a satisfying conclusion.

One thing I don't understand, though, is the old man's role in the story. Who is he, and why does he know what he knows about Shonen Bat? What is his calculation about, and what does Maniwa realize at the end after making the same calculation?

I don't want to sound like a faggot, but expecting Paranoia Agent (or anything directed by Kon) to follow a traditional formula is wrong.
The 'filler' episodes are placed there entirely on purpose and the fact that you felt distracted from he 'main storyline' means they served their purpose.

I wish I could find that interview with Kon about this series, it was really interesting to hear about all the little things he did to give the show its intended impact.

I liked it at first, but the ending was such crap. It left a bad taste in my mouth. I saw Paprika and felt the same way. Its a cool concept, and i liked what it was. Then Kon takes it down some fairy tale colorful fantasy shit direction. It makes me hesitant to watch is earlier work which i heard was supposed to be great stuff.

You don't seem capable of using English. Please refrain from doing so in the future.

I really don't remember much about it except that I didn't think it was nearly as good as everyone told me it was. I like Kon's movies a lot more.

Why does Cruz's sister make you mad?
