Rounding up unused ideas from his three feature films, Kon Satoshi’s first and only animated series is another ambitious and audacious deep dive into the darkest corners of the human psyche. A community is rocked by brazenly violent attacks by a mysterious teen nicknamed “Lil’ Slugger”, whose assaults create a ripple effect that exposes the anxieties of the victims and the detectives assigned to the case. Each episode examines the lives of those directly and indirectly affected as the shocking truth behind the identity of “Lil’ Slugger” is gradually revealed.
