1: Perfect Blue


Perfect is a difficult word to live up. It promises that whatever it describes is flawless - without error or exception - and is the pinnacle of achievement. Perfect Blue is perfect.

An amazing debut for Satoshi Kon, this film, like Orson Well's debut Citizen Kane, raises the bar for Japanese animation. Based on a psycho-thriller novel by Yoshikazu Takeuchi, Mr. Kon takes the story of young idol singer terrorized by haunting illusions, menacing stalkers and murder and deftly combines it with breathtaking animation and superb direction. Every frame is a masterpiece, and the images and sounds of this work will live on in your memory long after you have watched it.

If you have ever been searching for an anime to prove to your friends and family that anime is more than children's cartoons, this is the film. See it, buy it, believe it.

Volume 1: "Perfect Blue" Plot Summary:

Mima Kirigoe has chosen to leave her life as a pop singing idol with the all girl group CHAM to pursue an acting career. Little did she know that the path she had chosen would be far more difficult and terrifying than she could have imagined.

As she works on the psychological thriller "Double Bind," Mima is haunted by glimpses of a mysterious man and her own fears over the choices she has made. As the pressure builds, the thin line between reality and insanity begins to blur and Mima finds herself spiraling out of control. Will she be able to find her reality before it is too late?
