MIND CONTROL IN ANIME
This site is a reference for mind control and brainwashing in anime. Here you will find a list (in alphabetical order) of as many examples as we could find. The bulk of this list was compiled as part of a psychology essay by a university student with an interest in Japan. Some of the animes you find listed here have not yet been released in America. In the interests of not spoiling the plot of the anime for people who have not seen it, we will avoid explaining the details of the anime. Finally, if you have an example that is not listed here, please submit it to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it to our list in future updates.
