Hell yeah, episode 1 was awesome! Loved the OP and ED. Akane was really awesome in this episode, but Mika needs to have some sense slapped into her.

'Dat OP sequence though...spoiler much? o.o

Meeehhh, not such a great start IMHO, at least compared to S1.
Some of the dialogues felt very forced,out of place and pretentious. Typical mistakes of the new scriptwriter...

The new characters don't seem interesting at all, for now that is. Don't like Shimotsuki's attitude either. I guess Akane looks and acts more mature now, which was expected.
But her new lines sound more cheesier than they did in S1.

The animation is kinda sloppy when compared to S1. I'm digging the new art though. Akane doesn't look as stoned anymore, which is a good thing.

Glad they kept some tracks from the S1 OST, it really captures the mood of PP. I'm hoping the new OP and ED theme songs will grow on me later on, but for now they'll do the job.

I have a bad feeling about the antagonist this time around though. I hope he's not your typical cookie-cutter. Not that Makishima was a very good antagonist, but he left me with a better initial impression.

So far I can kinda see a small dent in the tracks, which won't cause major issues hopefully.


Bullseye.

"By living a virtuous life, you guide society towards the path of virtue" *Villain who was all crazy-eyed just a moment ago starts crying* That's some deep shit right there.

Or

"Sibyl made a decision that he wasn't worthy of living"
"...but in the end Sibyl reversed that decision"
"Inspector Tsunemori... you are...wrong!"

Wrong about what? xDD She puts her complete trust in Sibyl's decision, but then she thinks Akane who obeys that decision is wrong? Or if we assume she thinks that Akane manipulated the system, it means that the system cannot be trusted. What the fuck is the writer trying to say here? Cheap forced drama for the sake of drama. Sasuga Valvrape/Galilei Donna/Hamatora's writer. Chu chu all aboard.

Also Tatsunoko's production values aren't anything to write home about.

This new Mika bitch is really annoying though. I'm not looking forward to her character. Also, at the end there, is that Kagari?!

She's going to turn into a villain/her hue goes crazy trying to go against Akane's ways. Probably going to join up with the character shown at the end :D

Not as impressive as the first season, but looking good so far.
Great to see Mika became an inspector after PP1.
Great to see Ginoza as an enforcer. His dad would be proud :)
No Shinya so far though... I wonder if he will show up this season at all.

Damn, the action was really fast in this episode. It's great to have Psycho-Pass back finally! A great start to the second season.

Can't wait to see how this progresses!

Was a decent start, not sure how I feel about all the inspectors being female.. seems kinda odd, should have probably made the big guy an inspector. Also not sure why the dominator went into lethal mode at the end there, made no sense. Overall my expectations are still low but I do see some hope.

OP sucks.
But this was OK episode I think.
Of course not anime of the fall 2014, but still enjoyable.
PS.
3D CGI still sucks :|

Good to have it back, was wishing for a better OP from that singer though he can be amazing.
Also experienced main character is cool.

Holy crap that after credits scene was good though.

What an episode. Psycho-Pass is back and started with a bang.

The music is great as always, that ED song was fucking great. I missed EGOIST.

Akane was was such a bad ass. Shes grown so much and I'm so excited to see how she continues to do so. Mika is pretty annoying, but I have a feeling something will happen to her and change that. Ginoza, Yayoi and Shion are always welcome. Hope to see more from the new characters soon and I wonder how they will play into the story.

Great episode. The hype is real, especially after the ending part. New Makishima of the series?

no direct spoilers in the OP. Anyway, so good
Miss Kougami, wonder if he'll show up
Hate Mika
Hate the way people treat enforcers, I LOVE AKANE SO MUCH. FAVOURITE CHARACTER CLIMBING HER WAY UP INTO MY LIST :D
So hyped
And how do you all know the next episodes are going to be 25 minutes long? does it say that somewhere? This one was just 22 ish.
And also, the french writing in the OP says "the color is what you.." and then it says "free white", does it all mean something? :3

I thought the ending was the worst part honestly, it kinda contradicted scenes from the first season and this one as well.

My guess is that Kogami is the leader of an Anit-Sybal group that the guy in the ending is a part of.

Nice introduction and right into the action, say good-bye to Division 2. If Shisui survived and he didn't kill her immediately she won't be living for long that's obvious, only to serve as hostage/trap. Who would have thought that all the time it was the other way around - he disguised himself as woman and left the car with autopilot. He, Shikahokoi Kiritou, new antagonist.

Let's see where this leads next, one and half year has passed and now we have branwashing drug distributed and used willingly. New cast and enforces are yet to be introduced properly but I have a feeling that Tougane is somehow tied to Sibyl and that it was him who lowered that Psycho-Pass score.

I wonder if this season can top the last one... so far I don't think so cause I'm lacking some charismatic character. It was standard episode on par of previous anime but it wasn't overly good either. Let's hope there will be some great overlapping story and that 11 episodes are enough to conclude this with decent ending. Or at least with upcoming January movie.

That proves nothing. Kogami is supposed to be more muscular. I'm pretty sure that's the new guy and there's no real reason for Kogami to be in this season since he already had his revenge.

Well, if he's tied up, he could have been starved (?) maybe. I just really want to see him this season OTL

The hair style is EXACTLY the same as Kogami's, the new guys is different.

He is literally all over the place in OP on the couch, next to Tougane's face and tied onto this chair.
But he could be just hologram made to lure her into a trap and disappear as indicated, I wouldn't be surprised after this episode.

Loved how badass, yet caring Akane has become <3 queen!

This episode was pretty okay, to be honest. I'm not a big fan of the OP and ED songs, but I do love the animation! Still top tier even after switching animation companies. I'm expecting only the best for this series, and I hope it lives up to the hype!

I was really hype about the new season but this episode did not stand

But still 8/10 very good episode, I hope that it will become a Masterpiece.

I'm not sure about on the couch and next to Tougane, but the one tied up definitely looks like him.

Do not like the new girl.

And Ginoza was so much hotter with glasses T _ T

Also i have a feeling that new brown haired guy is connected to Makishima in a way.
His name is Shou and they have the same voice actor.
Might just be a stupid theory.

Looking forward to learn more about the new bad guy : D

Awesome to have psycho pass finally back. Mika is annoying as fuck. On the other hand I really like Akane now shes matured. I can't wait until SHINYA KOUGAMI shows up. I have very high hopes for this season. A shame it's only 11 episodes.

Awesome episode. It's been a while since I watched PP. Having a slight problem with easily distinguishing the inspectors (except Akane). By the end figured out the visual cues, still not too easy.

Mika - freckles, red hair tie, annoying.
Aoyanagi - slightly squinting, angry look, slightly reddish long hair.
Shisui - short hair.

I absolutely loved it. It had everything we could have hoped for. The epic OP revealed enough about the future that I could just sit back and enjoy the introduction episode. Was pleasantly surprised to meet our new villain at the end.

Best part about the whole episode was the OP revealing that Kougami is back and playing an integral part of the story. That alone is enough to keep me giddy with hype going into next week.

Seriously though, I wasn't really pleased with the first episode. That other inspector is really pissing me off. The ending was quite intersting, though.

Right back into a Psycho pass. Love the ost the opening song is very good. The visual weren't what I was expecting but had the first season opening feels to it. Akane is back and still kickass. She isn't quick to pull the trigger If the person can be saved which is a good attribute to have. Wonder who the new enforcers are they dont seem impressive though. Wonder where kogami?

Mika - freckles,

You can have freckles from drinking an absurd amout of piss. I saw one Japanese professor on TV that used to drink his own piss everyday and now his face is full of freckles. It must be a result of that.

Didn't feel as accomplished and atmospheric as the first season, but then again, things can get better and is darn sight better than most stuff this season. I like how Akane despite her more mature persona, is still the same sweet girl as the past season. The new detective is pretty annoying, but I'm thinking she'll get a rude awakening at some point as to the flaws of her thinking.

That ED was terrible though. I cannot believe so many people here think that's good music. Oh well,
