Paranoia Agent, the mind-bending supernatural mystery from Satoshi Kon and Madhouse, will be streaming for the first time, available exclusively on Funimation!

Funimation announced Monday morning that it has acquired the exclusive streaming and home video rights to the series, which has never before been available for streaming. The series will be available subbed and dubbed on Funimation starting February 4.

From Satoshi Kon, the legendary director of Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress, and Paprika comes a dark and mysterious, thought-provoking psychological thriller.
