I liked fight of makishima,kougami and akane is a suprise factor. I hope good final because rest 6 episodes for final. Kagari is very important for future of trama.

Fuck, I liked Kagari. Also sibyl is so much more fascinating now. The best part of the episode was the last minute.

Second best episode after episode 11, Makishima is kick-ass here, one of the best antagonists tbh.
Though I predicted that Akane will save Kagari.
Excellent Episode.

Well, it was obvious that Kagari was going to die in that episode when Shinya told him, "Don't do anything reckless!", just like he did with Sasayama... who eventually died as well. Hopefully we find more about his past.

Wow that fight between Kogami and Makishima was pretty badass!!

The chief was full of mystery but it wasn't that shocking that she turned out to be a robot though her appearance to kill Choi was surprising. The denominator looked like it was deforming, so I wonder if Kagari got shot? It was a paralyzer shot, but what's with Kagari's smile....he's not gonna die right because usually those flashbacks are one of those death flags...

Now they make me curious as to what's inside the chamber. What if it's like some terrestrial being or some kind of life form being trapped on to machines? XD

If the chief is a robot, I wonder if Makishima is also a robot since the chief seems to be familiar to Makishima, calling him "Shogo-kun" and not to mention their similar outward appearance (that hair colour....)

Waiting for the sub to arrive.

Time to see if this episode is truly (that's what they said) Urobuchi's "masterpiece".

Just watched. I knew the chief is the main antagonist and Shougo is just an anti-hero who use brute force to achieve his goal in the end, but never expect that she

Now I wonder who she really is and what is her connection with Shougo. Plus, R.I.P Kagari Shuusei...
well is more complicated but it was to be expected.

Oh... My... God Akane bitch seriously? Can't do batshit in real life and just sneaks up behind Shougo and knocks him out? Lame AF, just like the bitch. Couldn't even kill him in the end. Useless tomboy slut. I hate it so much when they make plotholes and make villains idiots suddenly just to make "good guys" win. Seriously? Super hacker didn't even predict, notice or hamper blonde girl from hacking security cameras? Take out 4 armed masked men alone? Just shoot needles with that gun? Seriously? And that too only 1 hits? Shougo totally didn't expect Akane? Seriously?

Everyone's saying Makishima totally owned Kogami but in Kogami's defense, he already fought 3 people and had a gunshot and slash wounds so I'm pretty sure he would've beaten Makishima had he also been in top shape

I hope that Kagari is not dead please no, we have seen a basic view of the Sybyl system on the reflection of the chief's glass anyone who see's it must die.

The bliss I felt when Makishima was hit in his freaking head by Akane. That's what you get focusing too much on Kougami and underestimating her. For once, he showed a reaction.
She's too kind. She didn't kill him and arrested him instead.

That grandma president or whatever was suspicious since a long time ago, damn her. Kagari didn't deserved that, he was a bro.

I'm glad the writers didn't try to find a way out for Kagari, and that Kagari realized and accepted the inevitability/necessity of his own death.

Now what could be so hideous about the Sibyl System...? (just my speculation ahead) The worst thing I can imagine would be that it uses some form of bio-technical interface to use the power of the human brain to augment the power of a supercomputer. There could be lots of human "corpses" in the basement to provide the computational power.

Even if that were the case, I ask myself "So what?" Everything humans do is subject to our desires and needs. We use animals in medical research to help millions of humans (and non-human species) live better lives; but we are not required to do this—there is no universal mandate saying "medicine is good." When considering whether the use of an animal for any unnatural purpose is justified, the cost and reward of this use must be evaluated. If the potential benefits were great enough... like happiness for all humans, a cooperative interaction between humans and nature... what cost would be too great? Millions of lives have been lost to war, genocide, hunger, and crime. Would not prevention of such atrocities in the future be worth the lives of even thousands of humans?

Therefore, if the Sibyl System involves a bunch of human brains and this show attempts to paint it as a horrific thing, without providing some justification for that view I have neglected to consider, I will be disappointed.

NUUUUUUUUUUUU. Don't kill Kagari!!!!! I like him and Kou the most TTATT

How the heck did Maki dodge and counter all of Kou's attacks but then get knocked out by the most useless character ever? Lol -.- But while she was the one who hit Maki, should've done Yuki a favor and hit him with the helmet again to avenge her death, but nooooo. Still weak af >.>

The fight scene between Kogami and Makishima was simply brilliant, though I found a bit anticlimactic the way the latter was arrested. It wasn't bad, I was just expecting something more epic.
Poor Kagari, though I admit there was a huge death flag on him what with going on his own and kogami telling him not to do anything reckless. I am very intrigued by the ending though. I wonder about the Chief and Sibyl's identity which is something they clearly don't want to be found out.

How do the helmets trick the dominators in this episode? I thought they copied the pyscho pass of person witha clear hue nearby so how did they get past the guard bots in the tower?

Kagari is one of the characters that I personally liked and I'm really torn because a lot of people are saying that he's dead and i cant.

I was so relief when the dominator said that it will launch a non lethal paralyzer but then the dominator's physical form turned to decomposer (whatever they call it) and i just cant deal with this.

It cant be Kagari. We don't even know his backstory yet. It just cant be him. I just cant accept it right now.

Sorry for my English.

Makishima volunteered as a diversion and he promptly duked it out with Shinya with very heavy-hitting hand to hand combat and he would've had won if it weren't for the helmet of his own creation smacking him straight in the skull with a satisfying whack. Akane didn't have the will to take revenge for her friend and arrested her target as per Ginoza's orders that came from the chief herself, but what came after made that a terribly big mistake.

Choe and Kagari ended up seeing an unspeakable cosmic truth and the former got blown up by the Dominator held by the chief who turned out to be a very menacing android after all. It was initially set to paralyzing mode but the gun transforming and flashing that bright really isn't something you'd call non-lethal. He might've been spared from getting blown up, but getting vaporized isn't really a better way to go. The fun rambunctious ones had to be the ones to go...

Damn sucks to be Kagari :( seemed like such a cool guy as well, so now the chief is the villain and continues to hide the true Sybil system.

This was a friggin intense episode. Hope they tell us the whole truth about the Sibyl System soon.

But damn Kagari, please be live man.

Wow just wow. Kogami is a beast and Shogo owned him with such an ease; though I half-expected a longer conversation between them. I'm pleasantly surprised that Akane keeps her shit together. Sibyl system environment looks precisely how I pictured it to be. And dammit, I called it that chief lady is a cyborg/android.

I wonder if Kagari is truly finished.
wasnt kagami Injured?

Makishima vs Kougami.

Wait, nooooo, Kagari is killed!! I'm going to miss him.

wtf the Chief is a robot. And she can overwrite the Dominator lmao.

It was a very good episode. My only issue is that Makishima being defeated by Akane. I mean, wtf is that. Forced. At least she was able to resist her desire for revenge and avoided becoming a murderer herself.

What next? What's inside the chamber?

This episode was... shit, though. 10.5/10
For the first time in this series i started to like Kagari. Before this episode, he was just "noisy-energetic supporting character" for me.
It's all changed after his conversation with the cracker guy.
He is more than that. Then shits happen, i don't usually watch anime ed song.
I just realized that the song's lyric is very suitable for this episode. I'm even rewatch the scene and his smile before his death hurts my heart even more.

Well most of my guess was right.

Akane's CC could be increasing after he knock Makishima.

So many deathflag for Kagari and it did really happened. Kagari didn't even try to dodge the Dominator.

So the Chief can control the Dominator's form at will. Then she could kill Makishima with the Dominator.
If 1 = 2, then everything is good.

Damn that one detective dude died. And I feel absolutely nothing for him because the show made it obvious straight away that he was going to die when he split off alone. That, and I didn't even know him--the show has given him barely any time at all to shine or develop in these 16 episodes (16!!). So yeah... I really hope they didn't intend that to be an emotional shock.
However, that Terminator reveal at the end there and his subsequent death scene were definitely fucking cool. I wonder what he and the hacker guy saw! Don't tell me it's humans clones/they're using brains please... Also Akane hitting Shougo in the head was cathartic as fuck, even if that whole bit afterwards was a bit too silly (as if Akane was going to kill him there...)

In the end Akane was able to resist her desire for revenge and avoided becoming a murderer herself, as such her behaviour is certainly applaudable as she didn't let her own emotions get the better of her.

The fight choreography alone would have made this episode worthwhile already. However, I wonder what will happen now after the first climax of this series, since the only two witnesses of what the truth behind the Sybil System supposedly got annihilated and Makishima got finally captured.
I guess, it wouldn't be a surprise if he continues pulling the strings even when put behind bars.

Bro this is bs murder or not shes fucking weak ass minded let alone if she only killed him earlier her friend wouldnt be dead this is the definition of people that cant do crap when the situation is high stakes in this case she shouldn't have enlisted as a detective knowing heads and killing are involved her job is to protect citizens yet because of her weak mind of "OH I DONT WANT TO KILL BECAUSE ITS UNETHICAL" IS FUCKING RIDICULES THESE TYPES OF PEOPLE ARE ONES THAT END UP KILLING MORE BECAUSE THEY CANT DECIDE FOR WHAT'S BEST!!!!!!!!!

So Akane got hold of her vengeance over the mission, I knew she had it on her, but I wonder if it was the best choice. And no, Kagari... don't die, it was indeed in non fatal mode, but it showed some weird change in its shape, like when on destroyer mode. Be allright Kagari..

No, not Kagari! Darn it! I knew this whole System was messed up to the core but I imagine it could be even worse than my imagination, can't wait to see that! God, I finally get why last episode's ED disruption stood out to me, she didn't quite human-like to say the least.

Meanwhile, Akane has gotten her revenge. Tough lad to hold back there but that's Akane through and through. Cool fist fight between Makishima and Kougami by the way, some dope choreography to boot! I wonder what else Makishima might've set up in advance.

Lots of questions... But hyped for the finale, looks like I'll be having to stay up for quite a while after all.

RIP Kagari, the only ray of sunshine in that dystopian world, your effort to fulfill your mission will not be in vain. Kogami will avenge you.
