Helmet that copy the scan data from nearest people to prevent from sensing criminal status. A shut-in it seems.

That bad guy (Sakurai-san's character) hates Psycho-Pass system and can fight, it seems.

That's some brutal action ;__; Though similar to what happens in reality, I mean all those people just watching and taking vids.

Can't get over how awesome Makishima is.

LOL@the crowd passively observing the murder.

The episode was thrilling from the beginning to the end. The mini robots made me miss Tachikoma of Ghost in the Shell.

Glad the finalized second OP kept the artstlye that was used for the first, I would even say that it surpassed it despite the somewhat stale song.

If it hasn't been evident before, the latest episode has made it clear how the citizens have become so accustomed to the system that they wouldn't be able to survive without it. That such a blatantly suspicious person could walk around without causing distrust from passerbies says it all.
In this regard Makishima is right about the citicens having turned into mindless cheeps, who abide the rules of the system without questioning it, while submitting themselves to a carefree life freed of responsibility.

Indeed. Perhaps I would've been also like them if I had been there. Kinda scared of myself.

It was very exciting episode! I can't predict what's gonna happen in the end in this anime and can't wait next episode.

Sybil System is so sucky and useless. Dominator is useless too. I don't understand why this system is employed. I didn't know Makishima is such a strong guy! I'm happy to see a new OP movie.

I think Psycho-pass is one of the BEST anime ever and don' t understand why it isn't so much popular (at least in Japan)!

I've barely got words for this episode. It was so perfect. I just.

(Did the animation improve since the last episode? It's always had great animation but If felt like this week it was better)

The OP animation was great. And so was the ED. IDK EGOIST JUST ALKDFJASKLDF.

I completely agree with Makishima. It's scary how those citizens were just watching, with such nonchalant expressions on their faces (although I'm aware it's because of the fact that they're so used to not being suspicious or scared of anyone, due to the 'godly' Sybil System). It's scarier how this sort of stuff actually HAPPENS in real life, and no one does anything about it.

Great ep.

I know it's kind of messed up, but I agree with Makishima's methods lol.

I know I wouldn't want to live in a world that's controlled by computers where everything you do is already decided for you.

The fact that everyone just looked on as that chick was getting beat to death just shows how wrong the system is. Everyone just lives like sheep as Makishima said.

With that said, he's obviously going to get caught and die but hopefully in the end the system gets changed.

Just to mention that i've seen videos where people are just staring and passing by the street when something bad happens. So, yes, it was a commentary.

Wow the deaths this week were brutal even more so than the mid season finale with Shogo Makishima. Another piece of the puzzle is thrown out there with the mysterious person Shogo is in contact with and the stuff he stole. What he said at the end I agree with his end goal but the way of getting there is horribly flawed. It's true that Sibyl creates a fake sense of order and safety, but the way of trying to change society he has to be evil himself to expose the flaws of the system. As we've seen though, he has no problem with it which still at the moment makes him the antagonist.

Another thing that got brought up which I can see playing into the factor is the surprise that Kogami's Psycho Pass got even higher. I assume the limit you need to be a "normal" citizen is X< 300 because they said he was close to becoming a criminal at 282. At the end of the series I'm predicting that Kogami's PP will get high as a result of his colleagues dying then fighting Shogo in the finale as we've seen in episode 1

Edit: Just rewatched the beginning of episode 1 and the guys with masks were there too : O Piquing my curiousity even more!

Fuck this is so good.


Scissors/pens/baseball bats all ruined for me now.
Those attacks were brutal.

I was raging because the people were just standing there recording footage.


The new OP animation is so pretty. Loving it!!

Damn that was pretty good.

Makashima seems more like a good guy now. His motive is clear and he just doesn't want to cause random crimes.

The way he kicked ass at the end with those thugs was pretty awesome.

Cant wait for the next episode.

I wonder what they will do with those helmets? Maybe distribute them to people?

Isn't this foreshadowing? o.O ;_;.

Ooh. An invention to surpass cymatic scans.
Glad that it all wrapped up in the end of this episode.

I hope we can go on a manhunt of Makishima soon enough.

Man that was an epic episode.
Brutal murders, bystanders just watching as a woman gets killed and once again the Sibyl system proven to be useless.

Kogami's PP is getting ridiculously high, but apparently it was only that high for the time-being because he wanted to kill the guy. Still really high nonetheless.
Then Makishima really just lays it out with those thugs! Once again kills a guy brutally by sticking the bat in his mouth and just forcing it through his throat.... Ouch.

Simply awesome.
Touch me, you filthy casual~

Much better than previous episodes. It reminded me of the potential that the first episode showed before it devolved into pretentious quoting and trite themes. I actually loved this episode, though, especially since the show seems to have direction now. Hopefully it can keep to this level of quality until the end, because it may end up being something neat if that is the case.

Rarely has animated violence shocked me to such degree. This has to be the most brutally surreal episode I've ever seen.

By the way, is it just me or was that pharmacy attack in the start carried out by a Senjougahara copycat?

Those two murders in the beginning. Ouch. And that woman who was being slapped around. Seriously, these people are ruthless...and shame on you bystanders. This is classic example of bystander effect and pluralistic ignorance. I almost thought it was also diffusion of responsibility but it's not because those bystanders completely didn't think about how the woman needed help. Seriously? I get that these people trust the Sibyl System and all, but how does violence not freak anyone out. It's not even the matter of desensitization, because people in this society do get freaked out by bloody stuff (like that lady in the first episode)...

Makishima said some good shit. And although I agree with him about people living like livestock, I still hate him because WTF you can't just go around killing innocent people, or to overlook the killing of innocent people.

All those people seeing that woman being killed... just like that... seemed exaggerated to me, Masaoka said he lived before the sybil system so it's no THAT old, and some people in the scene looked old.

The way makishima killed the last guy... ouch

Actually the crime in the street reminds of the Bystander effect, but the absolute trust Psycho-Pass society puts in Sybil system makes it more intense. Just a guess.

I've been wondering this for a while.
Why do I have the feeling she might die in the future?

But she is. At the beginning when all of them are standing in line on the roof (?) - she's the last one (Akane being the first). And she's in the "naked" part of the ED as well, the one on the left.

Amazing. Every episode is better and better. I love how they question everything about that dystopic world they live in, which is not that far from the reality we live in. Science is approaching to techniques to control behaviour, know crime coefficients (do we born being evil or not?), etcétera. I just love how the show manages to question this and makes us think even further in the series, not only watch but analyze. For me, it has a score of 10 already and it will only decrease if the end is very bad, which i hope won't happen.

Waiting for more!!

I have no problem saying that this was by far the best and my favorite episode of the series so far~! It was so freaking brutal and gory! This anime just keeps getting better and better.
