Glad this show is back from the break!

It was a little unexpected to have a flashback episode, especially one focusing on Yayoi, but it was great nonetheless. I'm glad we are getting to know her. She's far cooler than I previously thought. :)

I'm guessing Rina will make a reappearance in the future and will have some connection with Makishima. They also introduced rehabilitation.


I like the new OP & ED. Plus the music in this episode was very good.

I agree and this anime has me more intrigued than ever. I think its a excellent anime.

The new OP: I enjoyed it more than the first opening; I think's more visually impressive than the first opening, too. It gives me a "cybernetic" feel and I appreciate the vocals more than I did for Abnormalize.

As for the actual episode, I enjoy learning more about the side characters. I felt that they weren't getting enough screen time so this is quite satisfying for me. I appreciate being given a reason to care and look out for side characters. I may have missed these insights from previous episodes but this episode made me realize that
I thought this was interesting because Bamboo mentioned in one of "The Stream" threads that Akane had lived her life dully; she retained a clear hue by performing boring activities. If that's the case,
Just food for thought; I don't expect to be correct and I think I'll probably be corrected by people who are far more invested in the show than I am.

new OP is terrible.
that band sucks.

they're probably gonna give them so many OPs, it makes no sense


but hey, tell me something.


from what we know about the Sybil system right now, do you think you'd be considered a "latent criminal"? anyone you know?

I would probably be considered one, for sure.
So would Varg Vikernes :)


Episode 12 was awesome. I mean, I imagined how frustrating it would be for the underground music scene would even exist in that world. Most shows would not have covered that.

his might become a "root for the villain" kind of show. . .

I doubt it, not for me, Sybil may be wrong but Makashimi...

a) slaughtered someone just to prove a point. Such people may not be 'evil' but like a razorblade in an apple they're too dangerous to be allowed to exist. Sorry.

b) Slaughtered an innocent girl just becuase he could despite people asking. begging him not to. My emotional side wants to see him begging desparately for something and be denied.

Nope I'm NEVER rooting for the Villian.

Edit

Now that I've watched the ep.

I'm sorry for those who liked the original OP but I personally found it screechy, the new one might be nothing special but at least it doesn't make me hastily reach for the mute and fast forward buttons.

Further evidence that the Sybil world is a dystopia, as if we needed it, it was obvious from the first ep that going cloudy enough could start a negative feedback loop. And medicated utopias are creepy. I'm tempted to create a world like this for my players to visit in the Traveller table top RPG I run.

I wonder what Yayoi's motivation and focus is going to be?

Perhaps you're right.

While I think the Psycho-Pass system is flawed, I think it can be useful; I am of the opinion that it is used "incorrectly" or, rather, the "unintended" way. Technology has been brought forth into the world for different purposes but sometimes they're used for purposes not intended. I don't have a specific example but let's just say that guns were created for defense; though it is intended to be a defense mechanism, it is used by some people as an attack.

I don't quite have the words to describe it but this post from an user on ANN describes what I think of the usage of the Sybil System.

I think this show highlights the fact that humanity wouldn't be able to use such a thing correctly in the first place.

Strange, the link directs me to the post without having to scroll through the posts; but it is the one by Raftina. It's the 3rd post in the thread's current page.

Ah got it. interesting points not sure I entirely agree but definitely points worth discussing. I think makishimi himself puts some lie to that however.
