Synopsis

Psycho-Pass is set in a futuristic era in Japan where the Sibyl System, a powerful network of psychometric scanners, actively measures the biometrics of its citizens' minds. The resulting assessment is called a Psycho-Pass. When the calculated likelihood of an individual committing a crime, measured by the Crime Coefficient index, exceeds an accepted threshold, he or she is pursued, apprehended, and either arrested or decomposed by the field officers of the Crime Investigation Department of the Public Safety Bureau.

Redwarmin This movie is the proof that the world is becoming a sick and dumb place
MamaGravity good back-story, and good acting
Chirphymium It's entirely possible that sending the audience out feeling lousy was intentional
Hayden Kane There is, somehow, an interesting story here, as well as some good acting. There are also some good scenes
Vitalii To what extend could be moral an automatic system that completely controls the society and moreover can measure a level of susceptibility to crime of the whole population? Does such kind of system act in population's best interest or are people just slaves of the system? What are people worth when they aren't used to analyze and rely blindly on the system? If there was an ideal system that judges people, would it be also allowed to judge that system?Tsunemori Akane, an officer of the Criminal Investigation Department, searches answers for these questions in the near future. From a young specialist that takes on trust every decision of the system, she turns in a professional with an ability to analyze critical situations and make extraordinary decisions. She walks a fine line between trust in the system and necessity of changes, between own belief and fulfilling official duties…Great anime with colorful characters and story. It is a pleasure to watch how characters evolve and change their world-view. Worth watching!
Mayank Agarwal I enjoyed both the seasons, well made, very cleaver in using paradox's to build up the superb plots. The mind game between the police and criminals along with the justice theme reminds me of Death Note, just instead of magic we have technology this time around. The series is based on a future where technology has progressed so much that by a Psycho scan the state of mind of an individual can be predicted and action can be taken to prevent them from becoming criminals. Further to maintain the sanity of the detectives, they are encouraged not to do the killings, instead latent criminals who are already considered to be criminals do it for dirty work and are called enforcers. Psyco Pass got a lot of philosophy with deep meaning underlining the plots. Philip K. Dick, George Orwell and Jonathan Swift work are mentioned and discussed. The series start slow, building up pace gradually as it moves forward and by the end we are entertained with an excellent plot, realistic characters and gruesome scenes.
spacejords In a society where anyone capable of committing a crime is thrown in jail before they can commit it, a string of mysterious murders leads a rough-but-brilliant detective down a path of discovery and destruction.This is one of the best anime I've ever seen. The story is so well done and the characters, each one, is engrossing in their own way. This show is exactly like Minority Report meets Sherlock Holmes. The main character makes use of brilliant observations and deductions to try to take down a criminal mastermind, all set in a future where criminals are arrested before they commit crimes.If you are a fan of sci-fi thrillers, this anime is an absolute must-watch.
Catwings "Ghost In The Shell," "Innocence," or "Blade Runner" fans, those who seek thought-provoking realities into a story, or people who like watching stories that make you think about technology and humanity. Then, you may also like to watch "Psycho-Pass."Technological advancement and lack of humanity is an open question all- time throughout the history. While we are seeking to enrich our lives by using gadgets and machines, we may lose something important as human beings. What if we are born in a safe society where criminals and even potential criminals are managed and isolated from the society in order not to harm other good citizens, and they are guaranteed to live in the society with given happiness. We may not even have questions about morality.In the story, a person's mental state is simultaneously measured, and the value is determined whether the person is potentially a criminal and is killed depending on the state level. The police officers use a gun, but the gun is only fired if the targeting person's mental state is measured as dangerous, seemingly it also helps them avoid shooting the wrong person. Akane Tsunemori is a novice officer who is in charge of solving crimes with other members.One of the things that astonishes me is the dialogues where characters talk, referring to quotes from famous authors such as Philip K. Dick, George Orwell, Gulliver Travels, Wiliam Gibson, Macbeth, Humlet, etc. The lines that characters speak casts philosophical questions as to what is justice and what is an ideal society.I really like the story in which it depicts a different aspect of the technological world from Ghost In the Shell or Blade Runner, yet somehow it reminds me of those epic anime and films.
