Well, I'm glad I'm not the only person who spotted Harakiri Sunshine.

It's the characters' amorality that makes this show interesting to me, along with the occasionally impressive mindscape visuals. Plot-wise, the big hook is whether it's possible for any of these telepaths to escape the corporation that owns their lives, but I'm really digging the power dynamics between them and the inventive uses they come up with for their powers in order to feel like they have some control over their own lives.

It's crazy how stacked Takahiro Ohmori's resumé is. Hoping for good things from this show.

Seconded! I'd also say that the most inetersting part is to slowly unveil the characters' past and how it affects their relationships with each other, mainly Hiroki and Tsukasa.

I'm still having trouble in understanding some of the mechanics though. The "valleys" are supposed to be someone's traumas and the "peak" their best memory? How does that work?

Still such a shame this series didn’t get voted for weekly reviews every episode reveals new layers and complexities.
