Inception influenced by Paprika?

The secret is out! Christopher Nolan's dream world of Inception was heavily defined
by Yasutaka Tsutsui's novel, Paprika.

So if you enjoyed In“freaking”caption, you should also catch Madhouse’s version of Paprika
the animated movie, directed by Satoshi Kon. This ’06 anime tells of a mind-exploding
new psychotherapy treatment called dream therapy. Yeah, you guessed you! They
invented a machine that allows the user to view people's dreams, thus, exploring their
unconscious thoughts. The main storyline is lead by Atsuko Chiba, who uses her alter
ego Paprika to get back the stolen mind-invading device before all hell breaks loose.

What!? Your an adult & is a-tee-bit skeptical on watching a cartoon movie?
Dude! Watch the trailer & catch the concept behind the colorful toons.

Still think that Anime is for kids!?

Nolan did say that Paprika was an inspiration to Ellen Page's character. I just think both directors are just similar when it comes to to making movies about the mind.

I actually posted my thoughts on why people might cry rip-off of Paprika when it comes to Inception.
