1. Weird [Rating: 7/10]
Picture watching one of Miike Takashi's weirder movies filtered through a Twin Peaks moodiness, add some gore and more than its share of odd plotting, and you have MPD Psycho.

A cop is after a criminal who controls his victims' minds by sending them cell phone messages, and whose distinguishing characteristic is that they have bar codes printed on their eyes. The whole thing doesn't make a lot of rational sense, but the series is visually interesting and certainly has more than its share of exciting moments. Ultimately, it's kind of hit-and-miss.

2. Miike meets Twin Peaks [Rating: 4/10]
An eclectic Miike Takashi mood enfolds this six-part crime drama. Striking visuals, intense violence, and an arcane plot combine in a way that isn't entirely satisfying; it seems that the plot is more interested in building the mystery than resolving it, making for curiously uninvolving series. If this had been distilled into a more concise form, it would have been more compelling

Also called MPD Psycho. It is directed by Miike Takashi, so it isn't Nodame Cantabile. What it is however is dark, strange, disturbing, complex, twisted, confusing and sometimes hilarious. Apart from some lazy plot exposition in the final episode it is fantastic, Miike at his weird best. It is certainly is not for everyone. Unfortunately the official R2 DVDs have very bad picture quality and subs.
