This show just keeps getting better and better, now I have to wait for next Thursday :(

I love Akane in this episode! (well..when is she unlikable? lol) She was so cute then fierce haha, awesome characters and awesome plot. I wonder how Kougami's gonna handle the creepy ass hunter..
And even though Makishima is pretty messed up, you gotta admit he's pretty good looking haha :P

Nooo...another whole week.. :((

Akane gained my respect this episode.

Hopefully she keeps getting better. (At her job, not just her guts)

Hunter vs Kougami
-rifle -Dominator
-slow -fast
no exercise -Trains often
crazy -smart

KOugami wins 4-0 besides this sick hunter have surely a high psycho pass number soo maybe we see a new Form of the Dominater :D

A rifle can deal serious damage, it can be faster than the Dominator, because the Dominator needs time to read the target and choose the mode. Old man has cybernetic body, so he doesn't really need to train. And he's got his doggies. It's not so simple as you might think. He can be a very dangerous opponent for Kogami.
And yes, I really enjoyed this episode =)

Man, a lot of interesting points are made in this episode.

Human cyberization... profiling... and finally Akane telling her side!

This was my favourite Ep, the cyborg immortality using medicine is a great idea for an arc and it was great to see Akane grow some back bone, cant wait for next ep.

Wow, the talk about cyborgs totally reminded me of Urobuchi's VN Kikokugai - The Cyber Slayer.
It was good to see Akane stand up for herself, and I liked the description of the time when the Sybil System was put into action.

I somehow get the feeling that Ko will die, so that everything repeats itself, with Akane in Ko's role this time. But it may just me expecting Urobuchi to kill off all of his characters^^

I get the feeling that either Gino or enfocers except Ko will die.

That dude giving the interview look crazy as hell, how can no one notice that creepy smile, everytime! he smile, it look like he was gonna kill someone(that he has) but the irony of that, the girl who had love for the "art" got turn in to a pipe. that hella messed up, shot in to face turn into a pipe for some old dude to smoke so he can feel young again.

This show is indeed Dark as hell.

as soon as Gen Urobuchi said that the pipe was made from Rikako Oryo's bones, i was like DAMN!! thats crazy.
atleast now Tsune is improving and will hopefully get good at psychological deduction and be almost as good as kougami at being a detective.

That's precisely who I thought of when it was mentioned.

I liked the Sherlock Holmes number the profiler did on Akane. And he lived in a Frank Lloyd Wright house. The staff of this show love making references to all sorts of other artists and media (and philosophers too of course).

That pipe was creepy as hell when I got what he was talking about.

I don't think so. Dominator's display (if the device that shows the image only to the holder could be considered) only shows SEARCH, ANALYZE, QT-01, QT-02 and QT-03. You can clearly see how it changes from QT-01 (paralyze) to QT-02 (lethal) in episode 8 when Kogami aims to Oryo.
It's been like that since the first episode

EDIT: Could someone with some japanese knowledge say what it's being shwon at the start of Tenguji's interview?? the numbers caught my attention. Could be considered an indication of the date on which the story unfolds or to calculate how old this man is

Cool ep, Akane's outburst at the end was really well done.
I agree, her anger was very well shown. Facial expression wise but then again so was the MOE so it was wise to keep that level of expression on Akane herself throughout the episode.


You said everything I would say, so I will just agree

When I think back about it, I don't find anything special about this episode... but somehow, I really got into it.

Why do I have this feeling Akane would become an enforcer o_o

Akane finally shows some bite but thus far both sides have good points that being said, if you follow Ginoza's point of view with an inspectors job simply being to keep your hue clean and look after the enforcers are you really being an inspector then? That being said i'm sure as things changed in the world the meaning of that position but mah tis what it is.

This anime does a good job of supporting both sides of the argument and makes us think about each side evenly. A bit calmer this time around but like usual, I was really interested in this episode.

The pipe made of the girl's bones was quite messed up, and so were the cyborg. I think his creepy smile will give me nightmares for some time.
I didn't really like Akane at the beginning but she really gained some plus points with how she stood against Gino.

My exact same thought just like what happened to Guilty Crown last year. Anyway I'm really gonna clinch my fist in anger right now because I'm eager to see how are they gonna kill that rotten cocksucker next episode, I swear a god.

I think the moments of Kogami and Akane are cool.
I admire her style of clothes her "moe" is cute. ( when talking about Shinya)
Kogami so freakin hot in this episode too.the robot trying to bite him when he was gonna smoke LOL and when Akane arrived the robot followed him kinda.
Can't believe Gino lost his father but that lash out on Akane was meant for Kogami.
I'm glad she stood out for him such support will be good protection later cases.
I love Akane's way of defending with facial expression and comeback to Gino.
I admit I didn't respect Akane since she shot Shinya but she got my respect back , standing and support with what she believes in.

The cyborg dude is creepy can't believe he's famous , smoking pipe from the bones of Rikako creepy , I can't gtell who has a creepiest smile the cyborg guy or Makishima's or Sengiiji's .
Getting interesting though

As usual, every new episode reveals a bit of the world/characters' backstories. Makes it a bit hard to follow, but fun nonetheless.

So the Sybil System is actually pretty recent.
I really like the fact that, in the begginning, it was used together with traditional methods, slowly taking their places; one common flaw in fictional futuristic settings is that, whenever a technological innovation is presented, it immediately takes over everything.
I still wonder "how" SS works.

Thumb up for Akane standing for herself, she finally show some character. Her expression looks stoned as ever, but it's okay.

Cyborg guy wins the award for best facial expression.

Still, not enough future lesbians.

I'm seeing where this is going - when they finally find Makishima, they just discover he has pretty clear Psycho-Pass (cause he is really just an observer rather than latent criminal).
I just wonder who will break law and get him killed making his psychopass cloudy :)

Quite a bit of character development in this episode, especially with Akane. It's been a while since I've come across an anime with a protagonist who isn't one dimensional.

True, but if Q-2 it's lethal mode that reduce the target in shreds, Q-3 what is suppose to do? O_o

It was shown in the previous episodes to be used only against anything that is robotic or a threat that is NOT human/organic life. That's all pretty much. Q-3 will not activate on a life organism. It will convert back to Q-2 and will convert back to Q-1 if the target is not dangerous. And VICE VERSA.
