So was this, like, an allegory for nuclear war or something?
Just a story about a girl and her dog.
I was pretty sure this was Satoshi Kon's commentary on Japanese society.
1. People wanting someone to fix their problem for them
2. People committing suicide to get out
3. That housewife gossip
I can see the ending being somewhat of a commentary on the atomic bomb, but it seems to be more of a warning about what happens if you try to avoid your problems, superbly exaggerated of course.
Not so exaggerated if we're talking about the Japanese government.
Aunt Flow was the real villain.
Allegory for how shit of an series it is.
Why didn't somebody just call Oshino Meme to fix it?
It was about shame.
Don't be such a faggot
allegory for escapism, duh
More than fixing their problems, the Paranoia Agent people wanted somebody to blame for them so they can feel like victims and think they aren't the ones in charge to solve them.
It was an allegory for Mamiko Noto being adorable.
