Psycho pass - 

This show was aired in 2012, it was followed by a second season in the year 2014 and a movie that was aired last year on january.
the recommended order of watching this is:

Psycho - pass first season
Psycho pass 2 until episode 5
Psycho pass movie
and finish season 2.


if you want to know why i'll just tell you, as one who watched it all without order it will be nice but the movie focuses on some time after the second season started so by the timeline it will make sense to you. i promise!

The anime is set in a futuristic Japan where society is being supervised and controlled by a system called "SHIBYL" while criminals are detected with this system on a basis of "Crime coefficient" this is what makes you do criminal things and act as a criminal.
To keep the general order in society, those who are caught with a relatively low amount of "Crime coefficient" are sent to rehab and therapy while others who are beyond saving are killed. it is not a pretty sight, this show has it's gory moments, those are priceless i must say. this show just goes to show you how much Urobuchi loves Humanity.
The show revolves around our main character Tsunemori Akane, one of the most special female characters made (Since women are so not logical, emotional and very much useless in most anime's) she's the exact opposite.
Working along side Kougami the ex - detective who's now a criminal working for the police as a "Hound dog" for criminals such as himself. everything seems perfect enough with the way people are living up until Akane decides that things just don't add up and to top it all we meet our antagonist and the man everyone would love to be at some point in their lives Makishima shougo.
Makishima is the second character that comes to show Urobuchi's continuous growing despair in man kind where a man that has no conscience, a man that knows his purpose in life and believes it so much that the system can not read his actions as criminal.
when the most horrid secret of the show is revealed to us we expect our protagonist Tsunemori akane to have a complete change of heart and become a rebel against "Shibyl" we get the all accepting Attitude and the determination to change what is fundamentally wrong with "Shibyl".
This show will take you on a tour to one of the most prolific human "Hater" brain and perception called Urobuchi.
as a fact to his undying "Love for humanity" you can also see his other known works such as:

Fate/zero
Black lagoon
Phantom: Requiem for the phantom

and others that you may or may not like. feel free to write his name on google and read about him.

overall, Psycho pass is a psychological, Action, Police, Sci-Fi show that answers every one of those aspects in full and in detail. the animation is very good and the story keeps you on your toes, my mind was completely immersed in this show and it stands as one of the most representing show in my eyes on how human race will bring on it's own doom.

thank you for reading ^^

Season 1 was great, in my opinion..... Season 2 didn't pack the punch, due to weak villains, and a below-average plot(at least when compared to the first season)..... Is the movie any good? I haven't watched it yet..... How was Phantom: Requiem, when compared to this one, in your opinion?

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

I didn't get to watch Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom, yet!
I started Black Lagoon a few months back but didn't get to finish it, yet!
and Fate/zero is on hold for the moment.
I'm on a little break now cuz it's a holliday and family and many more things on my mind.
The movie was packed with great animation, the action was endless and the story was kind of, off topic.
but in the end everything concerning the development of "Shibyl" according to Tsunemori's relentless advice of it's flaws show that there is no way out of this way of living.
If you liked Psycho pass all the way through then the movie is worth the watch, and in season 2, the villain might be less of an impact than Makishima but it certinley delivers another blow to the integrity of "Shibyl" and the way it works around it's own laws.
the OMG moment i had in season 2 was worth every second and the movie fills the hole left by Kougami after the first season.
after watching all 3 i can say without a doubt is should be watched all the way through. but i know that some wouldn't agree with me and it's okay. in my eyes Urobuchi is a genious and his work is very detailed and has a mix of faith in human kind and optimism with complete and utter despair of it at the same time.

Well, yeah, opinions differ between each person, but, by and large, I agree with everything you said...... And, do watch Phantom Requiem for the Phantom..... It's good....

Psycho pass is good but the way, they make us see things isn't good.
I am sorry, I am new here and may be I shouldn't say this but psycho pass is too overrated. The sibil system got lots of flaws and it's impossible to watch such a system rule the human world either intentionally or unintentionally.

I wouldn't expect anything less, no one would like a system that has so many flaws to control humans but we have worse things than sibil in the real world and i think you'd agree with me on this one... sibil is nothing but a way to show us how things might look if we were to count on the criminals that already run countries to introduce us to an A.I system based on their twisted perception of "how to live your life" and Makishima shougo and twisted as he might be, he represents the human race that does not wish for sibil to control the people.
i do go deep in meanings, i'm sorry if it seems very cold and unfriendly but you did start heavy convos... it would be nice to write about other things and talk to you about less heavy and depressing things, we are already depressed as it is don't you think?

This is an anime not for kids.
I just couldn't watch this in public and I had to wait long hours to watch it.

What do you think is good? Psycho pass 1 or psycho pass 2?

there is no comparing it. it's two consecutive seasons each has a story line but it follows.
the compare part can come when comparing and old anime that was re-done and aired.
i can't compare anything in this show

I don't like killing in general. I believe each and every human got the right to live. If someone is bad, then there will be a reason for us to trace back to the core. Do you know that the living conditions, surrounding people, parents and other people play a huge part in one's personality. So, if someone like killing then we can say that, he saw people he didn't give a damn about others lives, in his life. So, he never understood the real meaning of life. If a person is protected and if we make him see only good in people, right from the birth, then he would never turn into a killer. That's my concept for life. More like that's clara's theory and I liked it so much that I am seeing things in that way.

As for psycho pass, makishima kills people without a second thought and it's unforgivable.
