Paprika was also better than Paranoia Agent, but I wasn't sure if I should mention that, given it's a film and not strictly an anime or manga.

Yea, I mean for the most part it didn't make 'clear' sense, you had to dig and dig and dig...which just isn't my style.
Although the intro I noticed that it's just people laughing while some odd danger is behind them in the bg lol...most badass one has to be the nuke going off.
Well, okay - it's about people trying to escape from themselves, metaphorically or (in the case of the woman with split personalities) physically. The most common metaphor is "escaping from the consequences of one's own actions" and Shonen Bat represents the means of escape for most people, which is a sort of spiritual suicide.
The point Kon is trying to make is that we should accept ourselves and deal with any problems rather than constantly denying that there is a problem or shifting the blame onto others - hence the violent death of all the commuters we saw at the start of the series saying "It's not my fault."

Favorite = Bakuman
2nd = Full Metal Alchemist
3rd = Zatch Bell!
4th = Ranma 1/2
5th = YuYu Hakusho
There's my top five. I really don't want to write my top ten, mainly because I can't think of anymore besides Naruto, which, I lost a vital interest in. With that said, all of you - yes, ALL OF YOU - have to read Bakuman if you want to become a manga-ka. It kind of gives me optimistic thoughts and hope to look forward to, and at the same time teaches me all I need to know about a manga-ka's life.
True bruh, I was watching that show like 4 yrs ago when I was turbotarded. But now I don't feel like looking up all the eps lol. Oh well. Oh another to the list of anime.
Scryed is good, but the ending is bad...
Scryed is so by the numbers.
Hotheaded hero who never backs down.
Calm, calculating rival who is polar opposite of hero.
Chick where you're like are they friends or more or what?
The only cool thing about that show was how the main character would just spin around before he punched dudes.
