review 1: Tsutsui completely squanders an original idea by infantilizing yet sexualizing his supposedly strong female protagonist and making just about every character unlikeable. The story is all over the place and has less to do with the unstructured dream worlds in which the characters find themselves and more to do with shockingly bad writing. I suspect that the translator shares some of the blame, but wow was Paprika a massive disappointment.
