Binge-Watching Tip: Psychological Anime

Psychological Anime

Embracing elements of the macabre and terror through an ample analysis of the frail human psyche, the Psychological Anime ‘s trademark consists in a series of elements seeking to emphasize the mental and emotional state of characters.

The diegetic features,  shift between mental conditions and enduring mood disorders (paranoia, delusions, depression, etc.) and intransigence (e.g. hikikomori) create enigmatic scenarios and plotlines.

Due to its choice of treating complex matters involving the depths of the consciousness and latent behavior, this Anime subgenre encompasses more lugubrious and surreal topics than Slice-of-Life, for instance (depicting common, everyday events). Because of this, such themes as death, after-life symbolism, mind, identity, existence and its purpose, perception of reality, mystery and intrinsic values envelop the subgenre in a distinctive web.
