Alternative Title: パーフェクト・ブルー (Japanese) Genres: drama, horror, mystery, psychological, thriller
Pop idol Mima quits her group in order to pursue an acting career. But not everyone is happy especially a crazed fan that stalks her. People around her are being murdered and Mima starts to lose her sanity.
Well, next time, I should seriously pay attention to the rating. Here in NZ it said- Mature: Rated 18. I ignored it and I really regret it.
First- story. Definitely one of the best psychological thriller ever. The scenes jumps from one scene to another, each always connected to the next scene in a way. All the actions of Mima, though different, connects to the next scene. And since she’s acting in a drama, there are times when her real life connects or rewrites the drama. Then, what makes the story more confusing and psychological is this: There’s a ghost-like Mima who appears to be the conscience of the real Mima, only to be something else scarier. The story is really confusing and unpredictable. There were times when you think you understand it all… then boom!
What the hell?!
Well, that made it one of the best.
As for the characters, I like how she’s being all paranoid and confused. How she’s got conscience and how she’s regretting things like she’s a real person.
For the art, well, it’s not exactly the best. It’s old and everything. But it still worth watching!
Score: Story- 9/10. Characters- 8/10. Art- 7/10. Over All 8/10
Like I said, Stalkers are scary! Imagine waking up finding yourself not being able to breathe in your own house. Scary, creepy, horrible!!!
