Editorial Reviews

From the mind that brought you Death Note comes a schizophrenic anime experience that will make you doubt everything you think you’re seeing.

Takumi is an anime-obsessed recluse with a fetish for two-dimensional girls. His dirty little cyber secrets land him in real-life trouble after a chat room encounter with the mysterious General leads him to the scene of a gruesome murder. In the blink of an eye, Takumi goes from a caffeine-addicted gamer to a paranoid murder suspect caught up in something called the New Generation madness. Between the police and a gang of girls with giant holographic swords, someone is watching his every move. As the world constructed around him begins to unravel, Takumi will discover that nothing – not even his own life – is what it appears to be. Welcome to Chaos Head. Can you survive reality?

I don't want to rag on the show too much because it is decent. Its got great atmosphere, an interesting premise, and some interesting character designs and personalities for the main cast. The problem comes in that Chaos;Head starts off strong with an intriguing mystery and bizarre behavior from the main character, but it fails to deliver any sort of satisfaction with its conclusion. The science is poorly explained, the main villain comes almost out of nowhere, and it isn't ever made clear what some of the characters' connections to the main plot or sub-plots were. The main problem with Chaos;Head is a lack of focus. If they had trimmed down the number of characters and steered the story to follow the main protagonist more often, then this would have been far more enjoyable. I still think people should watch this show, but I can't really recommend a purchase.

This show is definitely worth watching, as its story and character development are fantastic. The show starts off strong, has a great middle portion, and then just sort of.. ends. They build up too many characters to end the show in as few episodes as they did, if the show had been more focused on fewer characters, or had been significantly longer in order to come to a fitting conclusion for such a fantastic build up, this show would be up there with the likes of Ghost Hound and Serial Experiments: Lain.

All in all, if you are a fan of the science/mystery/suspense genre of anime I definitely suggest watching this. But if you have not seen them I absolutely recommend watching Lain, Ghost Hound, and Dennou Coil above this.

I would say that this show is for at least older teenagers. The cover blurp would have you think that the reason is violence. BTW, the main on-screen violence is in the first episode and the last two. I believe that the real reason is that it is ostensibly about a delusional, psychotic teenager whose delusions become real. In addition, other people also have delusions, and the delusions have delusions. The result is that in order to properly follow the story, you need to be able to follow what is real and what isn't. Otherwise you will end up being very confused.

The story opens with our hero, a teenage otaku, who is living in a metal shipping crate on the roof of a building. He has a sister who visits him periodically, but he spends most of his time with his delusional anime girl-friend. He periodically goes to school. If he isn't gaming, he is doing on-line chatting with his friends. As the story opens there have been two sets of murders. The pace takes off when someone sends him a pic of a horrific murder. The next day (at night), he witnesses that murder in progress. He sees a girl he doesn't know at the scene covered with blood, with the murder weapons in hand. He runs, and is caught in a surveillance camera, so now the police are searching for him.

The next day at school he finds that he is sitting next to the girl, who says that she has known him all his life. Other girls enter the story, one of which says that the hero himself sent the email with the pic of the murder, and others that say he should awaken. Then the girls start carrying swords. Then the EVIL organization enters the action. Shibuya will never be the same, since it gets pretty well destroyed.

The end result is a psycho-thriller, where you are kept wondering what is real and what isn't.

I rarely write reviews; I'm just not good with describing things. But having just finished watching this anime and reading these reviews that are all over the place, I figure I could clear a few things up. Don't worry, no spoilers. First of all, this anime is not creepy. This is not a Shiki: Part 1 (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo) or Satoshi Kon's Paranoia Agent: Complete Collection (or Boogiepop Phantom), nor does it really aim to be a mind-bend like Serial Experiments Lain - Boxed Set. There are some anime that will confuse you and maintain that general atmospheric vibe -- if you are into that sort of thing, then Chaos;Head probably isn't it. Let's be clear: I wouldn't even consider this to be in the same genre as the aforementioned anime. If anything, this should be compared to its successor Steins;Gate: Complete Series: Part One (Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo), or even C: Control - The Money & Soul of Possibility [Blu-ray]. It's more of a sci-fi with psychological thriller elements, than a psychological thriller with sci-fi elements.

What Chaos;Head is: an anime that's based on a visual novel.
