Title: 「PSYCHO-PASS サイコパス」
Post by: shadowDOESrock on October 24, 2014, 08:42:39 AM
(http://puu.sh/coWYW/8c11b63840.jpg)

Title: Psycho-Pass (サイコパス)
Year: 2012 - 2015
Episodes: 33 + 1 Movie as finale
Created by: Gen Urobuchi (Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero), Tow Ubukata (Mardock Scramble, GitS: Arise)
Studio: Production I.G.
English licensor: Funimation


Originally intended to be a sucessor franchise to I.G.s' very own Ghost in the Shell and created by Gen Urobochi (Black Lagoon, Fate/Zero, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) as well as two veteran I.G. animators Psycho-Pass ended up as one of the better animated shows in recent years.

As already mentioned before it was inspired by the original Ghost in the Shell, as well as Patlabor, Minority Report and Blade Runner with ultimately the goal being less to just create a sucessor, but a fantastic show in its own right. One that tackles, you guessed it, Psychology.

Quote
Psycho-Pass is set in 2113. The Sibyl System (シビュラシステム Shibyura Shisutemu) is actively measuring the populace's mental states, personalities, and the probability that individuals will commit crimes, using a "cymatic scan" of the brain. The resulting assessment is called a Psycho-Pass (サイコパス Saikopasu). When the probability of a person engaging in crimes measured by the Crime Coefficient (犯罪係数 Hanzaikeisū) index exceeds a certain level in an individual, he or she is pursued, apprehended, and killed if necessary.

The Story focuses on the "Public Safety Bureau's Criminal Investigation Division" Unit 1, with Akane Tsunemori, a new inspector, being the main character together with Kougami Shinya, an Enforcer. Inspectors and Enforcers use large handguns called "Dominators"—special weapons designed to fire only at those with a higher-than-acceptable Crime Coefficient. However, as shown by the trailer below, things quickly take a turn for the worse...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWF_-XqOsAc (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWF_-XqOsAc)

It's a great show that tackles not only as mentioned before psychology, but also socital issues. And all of that is wrapped in a fantastic cyberpunk crime drama and punctuated by the wonderful animation and sound design from Production I.G.

Honestly, I dont even know what to say here. I went watching this without even knowing what it was - without having seen a trailer or reading a synopsys - and it turned out to be one of my favourite shows of all time. I think that trailer alone shows too much...

But there's no other way to try to get people to watch it... Not like you will anyway... =C
You will probably click on this topic, hover over it, and click it away in less than 15 seconds, like always.

Wind watched it. He liked it too, so there's that.

The entire first season of Psycho Pass is 8 hours long. Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer is the only manga I liked that will take about that long to read (other than maybe Saturn Apartments, but Haku is already reading that one).

Why would I? Contrary to popular belief, I am not a weeb.
I always prefer english or german dubs, if available, unless they're legitamately bad...

Though, yeah, sure, I don't watch western animation, but that's only because it fails me to deliever actual mature content. Instead all we get are "adult" cartoons with poop and sex jokes. Though, I like Futurama.

And I'm not really one to watch childrens content. The Sonic Boom TV Show is the first western TV Show I'll be activly following since years, because I just find it hilarious.


Title: Re: 「PSYCHO-PASS サイコパス」
Post by: Elija2 on November 12, 2014, 08:26:44 PM
So I watched the first episode. So far so good, I guess. It's not like much happened since the show was just setting everything up. It kinda did a bad job at explaining what a Psycho Pass is though. From what I could gather everyone has a Psycho Pass that tells how much of a (potential?) criminal they are. So when their Psycho Pass danger meters or whatever are too high they have to hunt those people down. Did the show explain why they use other (potential?) criminals to help find the criminal they're looking for? And why don't the guns shoot themselves when they spot a person with a high Psycho Pass rating thingamabob?

And why did Akane not want to shoot that girl at the end? Her Psycho Pass determined the girl to be a potential criminal so why was she so hesitant? She even shot one of her own partners over the girl. I don't know who's side I'm supposed to be on because I have no idea if the Psycho Pass stuff is supposed to be trustworthy or not. I guess I should give the show more time to explain itself.

I'll try to watch an episode or two a day but don't kill me if I skip a day.


Title: Re: 「PSYCHO-PASS サイコパス」
Post by: shadowDOESrock on November 13, 2014, 06:57:06 AM
You got it right. The psycho pass measures the crime coefficient (potential of making a criminal action.) I think it's explained later specifically, but some latent criminals are allowed be enforcers, if their skills are sufficient and their crime coefficient isn't too high.

As for Akane: She found it to be morally wrong to take lethal action on a victim.
The Dominator switches between Non-Lethal Paralyser and Lethal Eliminator- which was the mode it was on when Kougami wanted to shoot. And yes, the crime coeffecient can go down, although rarely - dare I say never - completely heals itself.

Post by: Hakudamashi on November 13, 2014, 09:54:51 AM
Pfft
The Crime Coeffecient doesn't mean they will commit a crime, just likely.

Given the situation, the victim's Psycho Pass rose cause she was scared out of her mind, so rather than just killing her, she wanted to calm her down.

Watched the second and third episodes. Why does anime always have such terrible theme songs?

Again, not much happened in the second episode (other than that crazy jellyfish hologram thing). And why did that one ginger enforcer say that Akane was the only cute girl working there when that other female enforcer is way hotter than her? Sorry, Kyo.

The third episode was a bit more interesting because there was actually some shit going down, but I thought it was a bit silly how the killer started chasing them around with giant robots. Like seriously, if his plan was to make it look like another accident he kinda failed when he started cutting giant holes into the floor.

I never said she sucks, I just don't think she's that hot. Certainly not worth walking across mountains for.

Anyway, I watched the fourth and fifth episodes. What the hell is up with that avatar shit? I mean, the plot was engaging but all the avatar stuff was really silly. Spooky Boogie? Come on. Same with the old dude becoming a human torch to set off the fire sprinkler. At least they did something interesting with the whole avatar thing, and that one dude's avatar being a coin was pretty great (except they totally misspelled "LIBERTY" as "LIVERTY"). But if avatars are supposed to help you be anonymous, why did Akane make her avatar look just like her? Talk about a security breach, especially since she ended up talking to the killer as her avatar and admitting to him that she was a detective. I was kinda surprised they didn't end up raiding her home and flushing her down the toilet.


Title: Re: 「PSYCHO-PASS サイコパス」
Post by: Elija2 on November 21, 2014, 04:40:55 PM
I watched episodes 6 through 8.

The motives for the crimes are really starting to get silly now. So this Rikako girl is making sculptures out of her victims and displaying them in public to continue her father's legacy? And her father did the same thing years ago because, I dunno, some stupid platitudinous crap.

Also, I find it hard to believe that Kogami went crazy trying to solve a similar case years ago but was able to solve this one so easily. Like, all he did to get a lead was visit that one art freak in prison and have him look at the sculptures. Did he not think to do that for the previous case? That seems silly because he apparently paid that dude a visit a few times before.

And what the fuck was with that professor that stopped Kogami from shooting Rikako? Did he just not give a shit that she had such a high Psycho Pass? That pissed me off so much. But it doesn't matter because she ended up getting killed by robo-dogs (and a shotgun blast to the head) anyway.

Aside from that one plot element that was introduced last episode.

In memory of the late Kyo I watched episodes 9-11 (never forget).

Episode 9 aka the exposition episode was boring as hell. Not much to say about this one other than it sucked.

Episode 10 was pretty good though. Some pretty tense action in this one. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Episode 11 started off nice, but I can't get over that Akane didn't shoot the guy to save her own friend. What the hell was her problem? Even if she's hesitant to kill people (even dangerous criminals), you'd think she would do it knowing that her friend's life is on the line. But instead her friend died and the mastermind to everything got away. Good job, Akane.

She couldn't shoot him tho
His Psycho Pass was too low

And it's not like she had a pistol or something on her.

Not unless she has bad aim, but if that were the case then she wouldn't have even considered using her enforcer gun.

I watched episodes 12 to 14.

In episode 12 we learn how Yayoi became an enforcer. We also learn that she used to be a rock star but I guess she never mentions it again. So much for being passionate about music, eh? Also, I guess we never hear from that other rocker girl with the bombs ever again?

Not much happened in episode 13. They scanned Akane's brain to get a clear picture of Makashima but her Psycho-Pass didn't go up because she's a magical happy girl who never worries about anything. No wonder Kyo loves her; she's the only girl who could ever stay happy with him!

Episode 14 was pretty crazy. I guess society got so comfortable that nobody finds a dude wearing a crazy helmet suspicious, not even when that same dude is bludgeoning a woman to death. I mean, do they really want me to believe that nobody reacted to seeing the murder because they couldn't comprehend something that terrible happening? That doesn't even make any sense! Other than that though, this episode was really good.

Okay, so Kyo thinks that standing around and doing absolutely nothing is a normal reaction when you're witnessing a brutal beating. Not just in the show, but in real life. Tell him he's crazy.

It's not Christmas without watching some anime! I got snug next to the fireplace with some hot cocoa and watched episodes 15 to 18.

In episode 15 the helmets start being being distributed to civilians. If the people using the helmets have a high Psycho-Pass, why aren't they all being caught before they get their hands on them? They should be showing up on their psycho-radars, right? Surely the police aren't this incompetent? Also, in this episode we truly see how pretentious and stupid Makashima really is. Are we supposed to think this guy is smart? I mean, sure he reads Plato and Dickens but he's got some really dumb beliefs. "Who are the real monsters? Not us serial killers, it's the innocent people living happy lives." They couldn't even have him at least admit that he's a terrible person, they had to make him so full of himself. He even hates e-books and when asked why he goes off on some tangent about how he trails off when reading sometimes. Maybe he's just a hipster? I guess he's good at making us hate him which is what being a villain is all about. But then again, I feel like the show is trying to make us agree with him on the evils of the Sibyl system. Kinda hard to agree with this guy on anything when he's such a prick. Overall, this episode was alright.

In episode 16 Kogami finally confronts Makashima. Makashima says some more pretentious shit (which Kogami calls him out on and even Makashima thinks the words coming out of his mouth are bullshit, so what the hell?) and then proceeds to kick Kogami's ass. Luckily Akane is there to save him but of course she can't finish the job and kill Makashima (although to be fair her orders were to arrest him alive). Meanwhile, the redhead chats with the master-hacker guy and we find out that he too hates the Sibyl system. Can't say I blame him, although even he thinks that Makashima and his gang are shitheads. Then he and the hacker get offed by *gasp* the head of the bureau!? Who is apparently also *double gasp* a cyborg!? This episode was just full of surprises!

In episode 17 the true nature of the Sibyl system is revealed. Basically it's a bunch of brains working together, and the head of the bureau her/him/itself is a part of it. Doesn't quite make sense to be, but I don't think the details matter. They attempt to recruit Makashima's brain to become a part of the Sibyl system, but he ain't having none of that shit. So he gruesomely destroys the cyborg lady and crashes the plane they were riding on. How the hell did he survive that crash? Is he invincible now, too? This show is really starting to keep me interested now.

In episode 18 Ginoza attempts to investigate the crash site but is told he isn't authorized to. The crazy cyborg lady then tells him that Makashima escaped and that they're tasked with capturing him alive again. How many cyborg-bodies does this lady have on-hand? Aren't those things super-expensive? Also, Kogami is off the case because he's a loose cannon or something and he immediately finds the situation fishy. When the group devises a roundabout way of letting Kogami investigate something the cyborg-lady (I should really learn her name) appears and straight-up tries to get Ginoza to murder Kogami. She really isn't trying to pretend that nothing suspicious is going on, is she? Well, Kogami is having none of that so now he really becomes a loose cannon and goes out on his own, but not before sending Akane a heartfelt letter confessing his love for her. Oh wait, the letter actually just tells her that he's leaving to do some investigating on his own. I'm not sure how he's gonna succeed with the Sibyl system going after him hardcore. Overall, another good episode.

I'm almost at the end of the season and Kyo isn't even halfway through Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer. Just because he deleted his account doesn't mean he can slack off on our deal! And he originally wanted us to both finish by the end of November. Ha!

Post Merge: December 29, 2014, 04:09:07 AM
Holy shit, I just realized that Kyo posted about that e-books scene earlier and cited it as one of his favourite scenes. That scene was fucking terrible!

Anyway, I finished the rest of the season. Big block-o-text incoming!

In episode 19 Kogami visits his hipster friend in the mountains to get help finding Makishima. They find the answer on 4chan; Makishima is trying to destroy Japan's food supply so the government will have to start being buddies with other countries to get their food and that will somehow cause the collapse of the Sibyl system. How the fuck did they deduce that from a random forum post? They also deduced that Makishima is doing all of this because his unreadable Psycho-Pass made him feel like an outcast to society. I...don't really see how that reasoning makes any sense. I mean, Akane's Psycho-Pass is also perfect but that doesn't cause her to go crazy. This episode was kinda meh.

In episode 20 the Sibyl system reveals itself to Akane for reasons I still don't understand. So much for keeping that whole operation a secret, eh? Meanwhile, Makishima kills the dude who thought up Japan's self-sustained food-processing system and steals his fingers. Is that his gimmick? The Wet Bandits leave the faucets on in the houses they ransack and Makishima steals the fingers of his victims? No, he just needs them to access the food-processing facility. Anyway, Kogami shows up not long after and hides a message for Akane's team in the dead dude's windpipe. Uhh, he coulda just left that on the table or something. Apparently Kogami wanted to test their detective abilities but, seriously, what the hell? Do you want their help or not? This episode was okay.

In episode 21, everyone takes a visit to the food-processing facility. How did they all get in without the dead guy's fingers? Maybe Makishima did just take them for fun. Anyway, Kogami wants to kill Makishima but Akane can't let him do that because of a deal she struck with the Sibyl system. If she takes Makishima in alive they'll spare Kogami's life. Anyway, so they shut down the power to the facility because that's the only way to hold off Makishima's plans. Akane and the other girl (I should really learn her name too) head to the control room because they think Makishima will be there. Once they see that nobody is there, Akane deduces that she must be wrong because otherwise Kogami would also be there because Kogami is perfect and could never be wrong. Meanwhile, Ginoza and Masaoka are exploring some other area of the facility when Ginoza's clumsiness causes a trap to go off that causes his arm to be crushed. Makishima then shows up and throws a bomb at Ginoza and Masaoka sacrifices his life to save his son. Wait, Masaoka is Ginoza's father? Why am I just now finding out about this!? Anyway, Ginoza escapes from underneath the container, losing his arm in the process. Like father, like son. He then proceeds to scold his dying father. I guess we all cope in different ways. Kogami also shows up and starts chasing after Makishima with his gun. Makishima only brought a knife to a gun fight and he still manages to get the upper hand. What happens next? READ ON TO FIND OUT. Overall this was a really good episode.

AND NOW THE FINALE. Akane shows up to break up the fight, letting Makishima escape. Akane orders Kogami to apprehend Makishima alive and they both set out to search for him, nearly letting him run them over with a truck. Akane latches onto the truck and shoots out the tires, causing it to crash. Makishima climbs out of the truck and towers over Akane, but his gun is out of bullets! What luck! His kung-fu skills no longer being of any use, he walks towards the distant hills waiting for Kogami to shoot him. And he does. That was kinda anti-climactic. The rest of the episode is everyone reflecting on what they've been through. Some bullshit about how Kogami and Makishima were destined to meet each other that made me groan. Akane is the new head of her division and Ginoza is now an enforcer. Like father, like son. Kogami runs off somewhere, never to be heard from again. And whoa, those two girls were lesbians!? And they were banging each other behind everyone's backs!?!? That makes them a million times hotter than Akane! What the hell, Kyo? Get your priorities straight! Anyway, the episode ends with a new inspector being recruited that looks almost exactly like Akane (and she still ends up being the hotter one). The season ends almost exactly as it began. The first half of the finale was really good, but the ending wasn't satisfying to me.

Alright, now here's my overall review of the show:

The show was pretty entertaining. Even though some of the episodes were boring as hell, the times it got intense made up for it. Some of the characters kinda bothered me though. I really disliked how Kogami is some perfect badass dude that is never wrong about anything. Both him and Akane are pretty generic. Also, we never learn much about those two lesbian girls or the redhead. That one girl did get her own episode, but that episode was pretty weak.

My main complaint with the show is how it handles its concepts and themes. It tries to be intelligent but most of the time it just comes off as pretentious and doesn't make any sense. Everything that comes out of Makishima's and the Sibyl system's mouths just ends up confusing me, and I'm not that dumb! Even Kogami is guilty of this when he deduces something through some nonsensical thought process. It brings up all these heavy themes but then doesn't do anything substantial with them. Makishima quotes famous authors all the time, but it seems like it's only to make him sound smarter and not to make the viewer think about the words he's saying. The Zero Escape series is an example of something that brings up a bunch of concepts and theories in a non-pretentious way and actually does something with them. Psycho-Pass isn't. If they left all that stuff out the show would have been much better. Kyo mentioned in the OP that the show tackles psychological and societal issues, but he didn't say that they do it so terribly! He also mentioned how the animation is supposed to be amazing but it's actually kinda (http://i.imgur.com/CBuxQjX.png) sloppy (http://i.imgur.com/mRFSL63.gif). And even outside of the pretentious dialog, the writing can be pretty bad at times.

That said, none of that stuff stopped me from enjoying the show (although it came pretty close). If this is your favourite anime though, well, I hope you haven't watched much. It's certainly not anything special and I don't know if I would recommend it to people over something else like Planetes. Sorry, Kyo.

My overall score is 6 jellyfish maids out of 10.
