Overview

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.

This review will be made in parts. * First, we have season 1 which tells the tale of a criminal mastermind who is doing everything in his power to destroy the centralized power hierarchy known as sybil. * Second, we have season 2 which tells the tale of a different villain who is doing everything in his power to destroy... wait (this is oddly similar) ... ah yes, to destroy the centralized power hierarchy known as sybil. First and foremost, I do recommend you to watch the first season of this show if you like cyberpunk themes, investigation and great characters. The first season is an amazing view at a dystopian future where everything is being controlled and measured, your emotions are constantly being watched by the government, the unrest of the constant surveillance creates discomfort and at worst mental health issues so our main cast has to deal with criminals they could share a future if not careful. The way it develops the villain to be this multi faceted guy who if shone with a different light you might mistake him for the good guy. All characters make sense and there are some twists and turns you clearly don't expect making you sit on the edge of the seat by its grand finale. **Definitely a must watch 10/10**. Now with season 2... I do NOT recommend you to watch season 2+. Unfortunately, they made some choices in its cast removing main characters, the villain is just cartoonishly evil, then they try to make you feel bad for him by making him tragic when at that point you don't care anymore. Characters don't make sense and their actions at times are plain stupid and incoherent. In the first season what made it so great was that lives had a weight, you just didn't see too many people dying, it was controlled and it gave the show maturity. The second season is a gorefest, bodies exploding, people getting shot out of nowhere, it feels like it was directed by a 12 years old that just recently got out from a twitter fight. The twists and turns the show presents are a joke. One second he wants to kill them all, suddenly in the same episode 2 minutes later he realized his mistakes and does the opposite, without any growth to properly display his change of mind. **Do NOT watch a 2/10** being generous. TLDR: Season 1 is great, season 2 was made by another guy to milk the cow for all its worth. I haven't watched season 3 but knowing it wasn't made by the original guy I can already tell it has nothing to do with what I fell in love with.
