I just saw Perfect Blue again. Man, I forgot just how badly that movie messes with your head. It's Lain turned psycho-killer, folks. But like I said, I have a small question. Why do Mima's fans call her Mimarin? Does anyone know?

From what I can remember, I think it's her full name.

This was one freaky anime! But it was very good. I had also wondered about the name thing. I also had about a hundred other questions but I can't think of any because I haven't watched it recently and don't plan to any time soon.

I guess whether or not Perfect Blue had a good ending will be an eternal debate. Really, it might have worked better if they both died and the final shot was of the cityscape at night instead of cutting to the mental hospital. It MIGHT have worked better, but I won't say for sure. Hey, I liked the ending theme. I considered it, y'know, ironic. Like the happy peppy theme that is Kom Susser Tod in Evangelion.

The irony (if that's what was intended) could have worked if Mima was in a real mess at the end, but she was really happy so it just made the end really happy which is really strange considering all that had happened before.

think of Hitchocock and of Lynch. they used the same technique to really freak you out. it wasn't the gore and the carnage of the other scenes, it was the horribly "happy" ending. you can see that she's GOING to be mentally scared for the rest of her life, but the story ends when she's still "happy"
