The Mizuhanome System is a highly advanced development that allows people to enter one of the most intriguing places in existence—the human mind. Through the use of so-called "cognition particles" left behind at a crime scene by the perpetrator, detectives from the specialized police squad Kura can manifest a criminal's unconscious mind as a bizarre stream of thoughts in a virtual world. Their task is to explore this psychological plane, called an "id well," to reveal the identity of the culprit.

Not just anyone can enter the id wells; the prerequisite is that you must have killed someone yourself. Such is the case for former detective Akihito Narihisago, who is known as "Sakaido" inside the id wells. Once a respected member of the police, tragedy struck, and he soon found himself on the other side of the law.

Nevertheless, Narihisago continues to assist Kura in confinement. While his prodigious detective skills still prove useful toward investigations, Narihisago discovers that not everything is as it seems, as behind the seemingly standalone series of murder cases lurks a much more sinister truth.

One thing that really needs to be said, Yes, Psycho-Pass and ID: INVADED are similar, but that doesn't devalue the series. It's like comparing Black Clover and Mashle: Magic and Muscles. Great to start a argument about, but ultimately both are unique works even with some of the same plot points. Now moving onto the review...

Starting off with music/sound, Mr. Fixer by Sou (OP) & Other Side by MIYAVI (ED) are absolutely amazing, the tone and lyrics fit the series well, and it'd be nigh impossible to find better choices. The other music peices throughout are also very good, and well placed. So ...

Spectacularly stupid and sublimely dumb, this is definitely a complete waste of time UNLESS you can derive second-order humour from it's stunning lack of success. In respect to that though, it was honestly very entertaining. Almost everything here so transparently attempts to be smart, twisty, and gripping, and all of those attempts fail so completely that just seeing it all unravel was enough to keep me watching. Stupid pop-philosophy concepts are paraded about in dialogue that ranges from offensively trite, to hilariously essentialist/reductivist, to what basically amounts to the script-writers talking to each other about their ideas at the pub transplanted directly into the show. ...
