Synopsis

Justice, and the enforcement of it, has changed. In the 22nd century, Japan enforces the Sibyl System, an objective means of determining the threat level of each citizen by examining their mental state for signs of criminal intent, known as their Psycho-Pass. Inspectors uphold the law by subjugating, often with lethal force, anyone harboring the slightest ill-will; alongside them are Enforcers, jaded Inspectors that have become latent criminals, granted relative freedom in exchange for carrying out the Inspectors' dirty work.

Into this world steps Akane Tsunemori, a young woman with an honest desire to uphold justice. However, as she works alongside veteran Enforcer Shinya Kougami, she soon learns that the Sibyl System's judgments are not as perfect as her fellow Inspectors assume. With everything she has known turned on its head, Akane wrestles with the question of what justice truly is, and whether it can be upheld through the use of a system that may already be corrupt.

*No Spoilers*
This review is for Psycho-Pass, the first season of the series.

Summary:
Psycho-Pass is a psychological, detective-style show set in the future. Law enforcement is governed by the Sibyl System, which utilizes a person’s hue and Crime Coefficient to determine their mental state and likelihood of committing a crime. Psycho-Pass combines mystery with action, and it touches on themes of authority, freedom, governance, and morality. The general story is interesting, and many characters make this show worthwhile, though it is not a masterpiece. If you are interested in sci-fi or detective shows, this is likely a great treat. I do suggest deeply considering your interest after ...

Meh 🤷🏻‍♂️

Going in, I was quite excited to finally watch Psycho-pass. I knew it was a very popular show at one point and was looking forward to checking out a sci-fi seinen anime.

Unfortunately, Psycho pass is held back by bland characters and pretentious writing. Too many minutes in this show consist of long winded rants about the world that just become boring and irritating as the show goes on. On top of that, there is a real lack of ‘entertainment value’ from the plot as you are essentially watching a slow detective show with a sci-fi skin.

That said, the show has very nice ...

I watched psycho-pass because it was recommended for fans of death note. A big difference between psycho-pass and death note is that psycho-pass is more sci-fi, while death note is more fantasy. However, what I liked about death note was that there was ONE fantasy element (the death note, which yes, did come with the shinigamis) that was placed in an otherwise normal and real-life-like world. I tend to like anime that show characters in a real, non-fantasy life, like Monster and Perfect Blue, and Death Note was amazing even though it had that fantasy element. However, in psycho-pass, the story is way to sci-fi ...
