Having read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, I find it to be a very interesting choice of allusion; the society of DADoES is judged to be human by their empathetic response to the tests run by Android hunters. Similarly, Psycho-Pass does forms of "testing" (more like monitoring actually) to prevent possible crime. That's not where the similarities actually lie though; the core of both stories is that humanity has somewhat lost a sense of their humanity. As seen with Rick's wife in DADoES, she relies heavily on the television broadcasts to display her emotions. Psycho-Pass's citizens lack empathetic responses (episode 14) and have no sense of danger.

It's been a while since I read DADoES so my comparisons may be off; but the thematic storytelling are quite similar. DADoES is a good read if you want to question what it means to be human.

Actually, you've hit on one of the common themes running through much of PKD's work: lost humanity. What is humanity when we are convicted of crimes before we commit them? When we can implant any memories we want? When androids have emotions? ....

Cant even remember the first episode really... But todays was so bad ass and awesome that I'll have to go back and look. That ending especially had me WTF'ing... Played back the final 2 min and freeze framed at different parts to see as much as I could of what the Sibyl System actually was.... Needless to say I still have no clue. Best I could tell was a big overhead highway rofl.

You're right! Great memory, wow! I totally forgot that. Watch 0:45-2:45 of episode 1. So we didn't need to watch the rest of the episodes in between LOL Greek Drama...

Great episode. In the home stretch now...

Episode 1... Helicopter bit reminded me a bit of old Golgo 13 now that I think of it too.

Awesome episode! I can't decide if I want it over with already, or to have it stretched out infinitely!

That episode made the series go to a whole new level.I just started praying for the series to end in a way so a movie sequel or 2nd season are possible. This has to be a hit in Japan!

I have a couple of theories as to whatʻs going on right now. Did not think of what you mentioned though.



Btw, I repeatedly mentioned "the chief" because I had no idea what her name was. Haha. Apparently itʻs Kasei though. http://myanimelist.net/character/77753/Jousei_Kasei

Regarding the "chief" and Sybil System core:
