Well season 1 was a phenomenon Kougami's chase with Makishima and Kougami/makishima's story arc. This is probably gonna be an unpopular comment but i think that season 2 was pretty entertaining as well. Yes it wasn't as deep as season 1 with as much thought put into it and we did miss some favourite characters but the world building was still holding together this story and Kamoui was is my opinion also a very intriguing villain. So was Akane an intriguing character and she proved that she'd always follow the system no matter the case, even with her best comrades gone. The ending was also very conclusive. Then the movie came out and tell me that wasn't an absolute banger! I am extremely hyped for this season. It's gonna be great.

As someone who gave the first season of this a 6/10, the second a 2 and the movie a 5, and also as someone who dislikes Urobuchi's writing--my hope and prediction is that this will be the best season yet! I'm really hoping that they've spent these past few years since season 2 putting effort into thinking up and writing a good new script, because that is what's desperately needed for this franchise in my eyes. A good script for another strong 24 episode season, that'll revitalize this original IP of theirs after that extremely disappointing and aggravating second season. A script with a direction as interesting and as gripping as that first season's--the season that made Psycho Pass as beloved as it is.

And hearing that this new season will follow new characters only makes me more hopeful in that regard. I love the designs of those two characters on the poster already (could they perhaps be brothers?), and to be honest, after just recently finishing season 2 and the film, I've really gotten the impression that the staff were running out of ideas with what to do with the old cast anyway. Both of those continuations felt so void of fresh ideas (both in character and plot direction), and it's not like they've left many loose ends behind with those characters either.
Though having said this--I am very doubtful that they'll completely go. They only just recently spent 3 spin-off mini-movies (at least I think they were mini-movies?) further fleshing out many of that main cast... It would seem a bit silly to leave them all behind after that, especially so soon after getting so many people used to them again too. And one would think that if they were to now focus solely on a new cast, they would have at least dedicated one of those movies to them to prepare people for the change.

Also, after the credits for the movie there was this (which was voiced by Akane):


This has got to be in reference to season 3, right? Since those SS Case movies were only spin-offs and not continuations of the story.

Not as bad as many say, but still cashing in on S1's popularity and spread very thin plotwise. Not a lot of synergy between characters as in season 1 either.

I am pretty excited for a 3rd season though I am fearing it will be difficult to reach the level of the 1st season. The main story slowly emerging from a series of case files whilst all the world building takes place. And then there was Makishima Shougo making things twice as good.

I absolutely loved season 1 but shit seriously went down in season 2 with the change of studio and writer. The movie then picked up the initial feel season 1 had, but left of at a note where much was to be desired. The 3rd season whereas will be having a completely new cast even though Production I.G is picking it up again, not sure about the writer yet (but doesn't seem like Uro will be in charge of the writing again for this season either), I am not sure what to expect yet.

What made season 1 so enjoyable was the cast, the thing that will be missing in season 3 which is already a bit of a let down, but 'ill see after it airs. The initial reaction will decide if it will be worth watching or not.

Director is the same as in season 1 and the movie. Urobuchi was a writer, not director. And yeah, he probably won't be back for this season. If he were back I.G would scream about it on all sides.

The way this industry treats Urobuchi is absolutely disgraceful. Take the man that wrote a blockbuster franchise like Psycho Pass and put him on a puppet show. Unbelievable.

I am actually, the 2nd season took me a while to get around to watch it and I still haven't seen the movies. So I am weirdly optimistic now. Psycho-Pass has a good idea but doesen't go beyond that idea, which is a shame. I don't see much police anime, actually I think I've seen oly a handfull, but this franchise has some potential.

most the people hating on the 2nd season are Kougami fanboys/girls who are mad that he was not in the spot light after the 1st season (even though Akane was the actual main character of the series.) you can even tell from there comments on this thread.

Good or bad, I'm fine either way.
If it's good, I'll take it. Psycho-Pass is one of my all-time favorites. But it would mean I would have to slog through season 2.
If it's bad, unfortunate. We still get to keep the amazing season one, and I wouldn't have to push through season 2.

You forget that the antagonist wasn't nothing compared to Makishima,that also effected the audience.

honestly everyone hates so much on the second season, but no one talks about the movie which was great and the 2nd season was okay you don't need a master planner villain for every season. and the season 2 villain worked for what it was.

I don't think second season is all that bad, and even if it was, the movie is just amazing. But yeah, I'm still not fully hyped for this, specially because they're making new characters again. I'm just hoping for the best

I’m actually pretty hyped for this season. I’m just hoping that they release a new pv soon.

It’s a shame people aren’t willing to give this season a chance just cause of how bad s2 was (it was decent imo) or just cause Kogami won’t be in it smh

I don't watch 2nd season still I don't care much of Kougami actually. I prefer Akane. The main reason I don't watch the 2nd season and the upcoming season is because there's no more Makishima and Urobuchi isn't the writer.

Season 1 ended perfectly, season 2 was trash that wasn't even done by the same people and no one really asked for. The movie was so-so... And now this. Who asked for it? Why? What's there left to say? Is it even done by the people who did 1? And even if it is, i have doubts it'll be worth much at this point...

This is pretty much exactly how i feel.
I never really cared for Kougami. I felt his character only existed to provide exposition for Akane. (and by extension, provide exposition for the audience about the nature of the universe.)
When he didn't come back in season 2 i was actually like "Oh good. We can focus just on Akane now."

Now i really liked season 1 and 2. pretty much equally.
I watched this series for Akane and the universe it took place in, but without Akane, i don't think i'll bother with season 3.

Oh. And the movie sort of just happened. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't special either.

When the first season is Kira vs L all over again but from the POV of Akane, season 2 is Kira vs L without Kira or L, but with the boring "MC" from the first season who only existed so we could get a different POV on the setting. The movie was better because Kougami was back. I would actually say just skip the second season. Its not worth it.

I am kind of excited for this third season, and Idc if it focuses on different characters entirely. I feel like I'm the only person who actually really liked season 2, lol. I miss Kougami as much as the next guy, but his story was told in Season 1, and I'm content with that, you know?

I think the real draw is seeing new perspectives on the whole Sybil System thing from new characters, and I am kind of curious what they're gonna go with for this season.

I am also curious about whose doing the music for the show because it's openings were always some of my faves.

I wouldn't skip season 2, I thought it was pretty neat, but I'm in the minority for that. I feel like the only reason people say they hate season 2 is just because Kougami isn't in it anymore, but season 2 has a lot of things going for it in my opinion, and it's a fun watch.

Psycho Pass has lot more to offer than just "Ideologies against each other" like its also a decent police drama, and if all you want is for that same "L VS Light" dichotomy than of course you're gonna be let down by it, not every show that even remotely has dueling ideas is gonna be Death Note, you know?

I don't think they'll catch that lightning again. It's good that they focus on a new set of characters, but I am sure they will bring the old cast often anyway.

The first season was interesing because it was fresh, ambitious and had good chemistry. And the important factor was progression - the initial "normalcy" and a regular thriller mystery, with an engaging realistic world to explore, the ever growing stakes, then an apocalypse and fighting for survival, then learning the big dirty secret behind it all. Now, when the normalcy is broken and we know what's behind, a lot of charm is lost.

But that's one side of it. A good story is only one aspect, Psycho Pass 1 also had women-centric fanservice for that additional emotional hook - with, essentially, a reverse harem, SM motives (enforcers submit) and, later, BL shipping. In a strike of genius they made the development of characters visible and oppressive in their hues, it's also very erotic in nature if you think about it. But by the end of season 1 the harem had been already lost, most were dead, the best guy had been chosen and promoted to godly status, most rules had been broken or discarded. It's a much less enticing state.

I mean it was a very potent mixture of ingredients in a wrap of an ambitious pretty show - and they just can't repeat the same progression, will have to invent a new set of different characters to stand apart and develop, and it's unclear what they can do about the main mystery. As for the fanservice part maybe the two dudes mean that they will aim at the fujoshi market, but then it's not that interesting for me, personally, as I only rarely enjoy BL and then I prefer straight yaoi with a lot of sex. I will miss having a projection character like Akane to be honest. Male audience may also not welcome the more overt female-centric targeting. And if they don't aim at women again, then it will lose a part of the charm, since the type of relatiosnhip not frequent in action shows set Psycho Pass apart intitially.

I feel like most people are just so stuck up on Kougami and season 1 that they don't get that just revisiting the same characters over and over again wouldn't really add all that much to the series as a whole, and those characters already were featured in the movies, so honestly their perspective on the Sybil system and their past and history has been well explained and fleshed out.

I like that this new season is going to cover a whole new set of characters because now we will get new stories and POVs than we had before, it'll be like watching the show again for the first time which isn't something a lot of Anime do.

Seems like Urobuchi just doesn't want to work on regular anime anymore. I don't know.

Frankly, I have no hype for Psycho Pass 3 nor do I have any reason to believe Psycho Pass 3 will be good. More than likely won't even watch it to be completely honest.

The 1st season of Psycho Pass on its own, is a great self contained narrative, there aren't much, if any unanswered questions, the story ends right when it needs to, and it's left just open enough to where there could be a sequel, but there doesn't have to be.

But that's not the only reason I have to believe Psycho Pass 3 won't be good, consider how Production I.G handles their I.Ps once all the big players who made those I.Ps good in the first place have left (GITS Arise, Psycho Pass 2, and the FLCL sequels are the prime examples to look at here). Most of the time, these franchises are often left a shell of the former self, and that's putting it very lightly.

However, if Psycho Pass 3 manages to pull a 180, and does indeed do something to grab my attention, then maybe I'll consider watching it. But as it stands right now, I'm not excited for Psycho Pass 3 at all, and I'm probably not going to watch it.

I liked the first season because of two things:
first, it had an interesting antagonist and protagonist who were very well-developed and second, it integrated philosophy to show the differences between them and their thinking and to explain their motivation. Plus, it had a decent story.

Season 2 was bad, also the movie was only average. I don't expect much for season 3.

I'm tired of hearing the line "people didn't like season because there was no Kougami".

No, season 2 sucked because it just wasn't written very well and was boring as hell. Every single character was just a bunch of government loving nut jobs, even the damn villain! Yeah sure I liked Kougami, but he doesn't NEED to be there for it to be good. I absolutely could not stand Akane's character, and her being the focal point in season 2 was just inherently a terrible idea because of how uninteresting her character always was, and how she never seemed to learn her lesson about how much you shouldn't trust the state.

Makishima was an excellently written villain in s1. The villain in s2 was the same as everyone else in their love for the government, the only difference is that he wanted to be recognized by the government. Terrible writing.

I'm excited for this since Akane's not going to be the mc. She alone was going to be reason enough for me to stay away. One of the best decisions they could have made. With that said, this could easily end up being terrible if they go the same route s2 did and not have any contrasting characters. Not interested in season a cast full of statists.

Off topic, I'd like for the SS case movies to be subbed before this airs, otherwise I'll probably just wait to watch it so I can watch everything in order. Here's to hoping.
