New trailer for ‘Paprika’ and news on the dvd release

Paprika anime dvd releaseWow, I don’t watch an amazing amount of anime, so when I do I want to watch the best that’s on offer, and everytime I see something new from the anime ‘Paprika’ it’s like I’m having either a stroke or an orgasm, and I can’t decide which. I mentioned ‘Paprika’ briefly before, and how visually it’s a bit like eye-sex. With the introduction of this new trailer I think this may be taking the place of ‘300′ as the film I’m visually obsessed with.

Animators from outside Japan need to take note and hang their heads in shame as the animation in Paprika is shitting on anything Disney has put out in the last 10 years (what? yeah that’s right I said it….”oh but it’s like 2-D… that’s so 1998″ shut-the-fuck-up).

As I mentioned in my previous post about the film, the plot sounds really similar to ‘The Cell’, with therapists using technology to enter their patients dreams:

Atsuko is a psychiatrist who uses advanced technology to study the human mind. Atsuko has developed a machine that will allow her to enter the dreams of her patients and study their psyches from the inside. Atsuko also does double duty as Paprika, a high-tech detective who uses this new innovation to find out the truth about what the people she’s trailing really think. However, Atsuko falls victim to a thief who steals the one-of-a-kind machine, and Paprika sets out to find it as a wave of psychological instability tears through the city

According to Catsuka the dvd and Blu-Ray releases of Paprika will be out June the 20th
