Synopsis:

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

Both Ghost in the shell and Paranoia Agent have that delicious sense of slowly exposing not only the plot, but the very word the story is based in. They also deal a lot with the question of what memory and identity is worth.

Can she really challenge and defeat fate itself?

Want a mystery that will leave you shocked and confused... Both these anime have a MindF*ckish element to them, making it hard to predict what will happen in the animes. Paranoia Agent however, is short and is as much as a thriller as Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai but both are very good and deserve mentioning

Both anime are reality warping mind-trips. They feel alike, but tell two different stories. But somehow, they share similarities. Try them out.

Kemonozume and Paranoia Agent aren't your standard anime fare. Each has an adept combination of a twisted, graphic, and absolutely entralling story with a vibrant and energetic animation style. Both are bizarre and would likely be loved by the same type of audience.
