Riding the bus one day, Sakurakouji Sakura looks out the window to see people being burned alive with a blue fire and a boy her age who's unharmed and standing over the people.

She comes back to the site the next day and there are no corpses or evidence of any kind of murder, just a small fire. She then goes to class to find there's a new transfer student, Oogami Rei, who looks exactly like the boy she saw before and wears a black glove only on his left hand.

Oogami is a Code Breaker, one who "does not exist". He is a seemingly cold-blooded killer who follows the principle of "an eye for an eye", to "use evil against evil". Convinced that killing is not right, Sakurakouji sets out to stop him and penetrate his icy heart.

Talk about a poor adaptation. After reading some of the manga, I was anticipating what this series could do when moved to the big stage aka. adapted into an anime. Not only does this series fail as an adaptation, but it fails as a stand-alone anime series. There were so many failures with this series that I don't even know where to begin. I guess let's start with the plot.

The plot itself is at least interesting. A select group of agents within the government, unbeknown to mankind with special abilities are hired to eliminate evil. This story follows one such agent who is assigned to read more

What is evil?

It can be describe as something wicked, malevolent, sinister, ill, or something which holds responsibility for the bad things that happen in this world. It's a four letter word that strikes fear, anxiety, and many other emotions. In the real world, people commit deeds through free will. Some of these are good deeds, while others are evil. In the Code Breaker world, there exists supernatural beings who are able to judge deeds (good/evil) and carry out justice with an iron fist.

Code: Breaker is a standard superpower shounen and one should get into it without having many expectations. Proof of which is the very opening song. It’s a nice dynamic piece, but it shows nothing besides the main characters doing a demonstration of their superpowers. No context besides that; it’s just what it seems. There is enough bravado and flashiness to keep the average viewer somewhat interested to see what will happen but in the long run it is nothing memorable or special.

You get Sakura, a high school girl in the role of Ms Pacifism. She is presented as a Mary Sue, perfect in read more

NOTE: This is my first review at MAL, so please bear with me. Also, I haven’t read the manga AT ALL, and I don’t know if the manga’s story is similar to the anime’s. Consider this as a point of view of someone who just watched the anime. There are some spoilers along the way to explain my point in the review, so read at your own risk. :)

I remembered watching the first few episodes of Code:Breaker (together with a few more anime) when it was still being aired last year. I got curious since I thought, “Hey another super power-themed shonen anime! Cool!” After read more

In both series, there's the theme of superpower in a world that has both criminals and those who stops them. The main protagonist from both series carries out tasks with their group in such a world.

Both series' main protagonist are cold, powerful, independent, and sometimes sarcastic.

Both series features action, drama, some comedy, and has a mysterious like background surrounding the show especially in regards to the powers used by various characters.

Anime: Psycho-Pass
The theme of delivering justice to criminals is a theme present in both series. Righteousness are judged in both series although by a different method.

The main male protagonist in both series are also quite independent and has a lot of skills in what they do.

Both series offers plenty of action and drama. P-P contains more violence and a more serious theme while Code:Breaker has more a shounen style theme.

Both series' organizations however has the theme of eradicating criminals/corrupt people in both of their worlds.

Though the anime has less action and seriousness the manga does
Both main girls were left in the care of strangers because their parents wanted to keep them safe
Both girls use nullification
Both main guys use fire
Both have shadow users
So if you enjoy this anime you should also find this one to interesting as well
