TL;DR: Basically a bonus case that explores the Sibyl system and supporting characters (namely Ginoza and Mika) a bit more, but breaks little new ground for world-building or the plot overall. 6.5/10


At 60 minutes, "Psycho-Pass Sinners of the System Case 1: Crime and Punishment" is less of a movie and more of a 3-episode bonus arc to Season 2 of Psycho-Pass. Our main focuses are Mika and Ginoza this time around, and fans of Ginoza/Mika can rejoice - they both get plenty of badass scenes, and Gino especially gets a beautiful fight scene towards the end.

Make no mistake, however - this is Season 2-level writing, read more

Can dead franchises tell new tales? That is the question I sought to answer, or if you prefer my perspective, when coming back to Psycho Pass, after many years. Do we have a team ready to bring some new life to this world, or are we looking for the second coming of Psycho Pass 2, the one that killed the series for several years?

First, it is important to establish why the series was so relevant in the first place, the place where people’s fond memories of the series always came from. The quality of its first season was on its boldness, in presenting tough read more

As a stand-alone (what this should be regarded as - theoretically), it gets a 7.5/10.
As a movie within a more complex anime, it gets an 8/10. Why?

The animations are on point, pretty much on the same par with anime itself. Although colors shouldn't matter as much as in S2, you can observe a darker tone in most scenes. I can't address the CGI part itself, since I'm not knowledgeable, but it doesn't seem overused, unlike for example: the movie adaptation of the original Berserk anime, or any modern mech-anime.

Most characters returning from S2 live up to their expectations. What probably annoys most people, including read more

Psycho-Pass s2 is often regarded as a massive downgrade from s1, a criticism that is sometimes undeserved, but still definitely holds merit. The (original) movie was a return to near-s1 quality in some aspects but cut down the mystery and tone of the TV seasons.

Psycho Pass SS Case 1 is a 1hr movie continuing the series from where it left off, and brings back Mika, Akane, and Ginoza investigating a mysterious site where latent criminals are kept as workers.

Although there is a mystery present in the first half of the film most of the loose ends are uneventfully closed, probably to keep the runtime down, read more

I'll keep this review short and sweet as MAL will let me.

Story was unnecessarily convoluted and not really explained well; if you take the time to understand it, it's not worth the effort. Nobody's motivations really make sense and the conspiracy they hype up, as well as the resolution to it, are honestly laughable. Like you're either going to cringe or laugh; it's that dumb.

The characters are flat as hell in this movie, especially Mika, who they decided to essentially completely rewrite because she sucked so much in S2. The result is you have a character that acts completely different despite having no development read more

Psycho-Pass: Sinners of the System Case.1 - Tsumi to Bachi serves as a direct sequel to Psycho-Pass II having it's primary focus on Inspector Mika Shimotsuki and Enforcer Ginoza.


Story : 6/10.
This story can be best described as a S2 story writing without any "disturbance" in plot by own allies.
Story Summary :(Potential Spoilers)
An unusual incident occurs - The case seems deeper than it is in surface - No direct cooperation from Sibyl system - introduction to the shady enemy hideout - threads become lose one after another as story progresses - A cool action scene - Dio-Jotaro moment - Villains dead - Case read more

Mika's Big Break!

Psycho-Pass: Sinners of the System Case.1 - Tsumi to Bachi is an isolated case involving Mika Shimotsuki, Nobuchika Ginoza and Yayoi Kunizuka as backup. Their case involving Izumi Yasaka, a psychological counselor in Sanctuary, a Latent Criminal Isolation Facility out in Aomori where they have to escort Yasaka back to the facility but with some investigating, things aren't as it seems in this "paradise".

Psycho-Pass: Sinners of the System Case.1 - Tsumi to Bachi seems to be taking place during the second season BUT retconned the "point of no return" scenarios as they somewhat retain some of their second season stuff (also the other read more
