I loved the ending. I found it very appropriate for both the tone of the show and the philosophical themes presented.


I'd love to see a continuation of this series.

Veering off topic... The opening and closing songs of the most recent episodes were awesome. Been awhile since Ive enjoyed both. Reminds me of how good the opening and closing songs of Xam'D: Lost Memories were.

I was a bit disappointed with the ending, and really the last two or three episodes. It was all just a bit too rote. Everything happened in a predictable fashion with no real surprises after the big reveal of the nature of the sybil system.

On the positive side, Akane's character did grow considerably. I think that she made the correct choice,


I don't know exactly how I would have liked it to end, but everyone painting by the numbers was a bit of a letdown.

One thing i think would have been really funny is:
Alas, it was not to be...

Yes I too like the OP and Ed of the song and how the series used those songs as part of the series.Not all anime does that to their end songs.

Indeed it was getting predictable when it came to the theory of how Makishima was going to attack Sybil becuase they were intentionally building it up ...that was pretty obvious and I feel they knew that but the bits and pieces that was in the show was the unique factor.the unpredictable parts ...

There are a few directions Urobuchi san could have taken for the ending but the fact that he didnt make it a big bang in the end made it feel unsatisfying however its almost like a symbolism to how society is now , which I feel , is pretty consistent to how Urobuchi san has written on the philiosphy of this entire series.

The ending is always a challenge for fans to take in or not.

Although I would have changed the shinjin in the end, it seemed too cliche to me for them to choose someone like her, but then again it is SYbil who is calling the shots....evil !!! .Maybe guys are too much of a problem lol....

Either way It is still a pretty good wrap up for this series and Urobuchi san pretty much made it so that he can potentially write more stories related to this.

well thats how I see it anyway ....either way its an awesome excellent series, well animated, acting, very well written, excellent writing of the characters ,one of a kind anime...

now I must buy the First Press release ...lol.

I was pleased with the ending, though, I'm not too content with the Sybil System at this point. I don't want them to depend on it but at the same time you somewhat have to take up Akane's thought pattern. Makishima played his role extremely well, and I mean EXTREMELY WELL! If a season 2 did come out, it would have to live up the the hype of the first. I'm not really rooting for one at this point but I really wouldn't be able to complain either.

That is an appropriate ending. Sybil system might be evil, but worst consequences would happen if it is destroyed. Akane makes the right choice. We would all do the same.

It ended the way it started. I really liked that, however i kind of wish we would have seen the destruction of the sibyl system, and how they would cope with that.

i have a strong feeling that there's going to be a second season. Also, what was the surprise at the ending? Did the book have any special meaning?

Well, Makishima always read books and throughout the story it has been said that he and Kogami are alike in more ways than one. So, Kogami reading a book like him just strengthens that fact.

Indeed . Each book has a connection to the series and its characters. ...both to Makishima and Kogami and I would soon think Akane would follow suit...since she too was becoming like Ko chan .

The book Swann's Way is by Marcel Proust , this is the first volume of seven part poetic novel and this one is also known as "In Remembrance of Things Past" or " In Search of Lost Time".First Published in 1913.

It starts by a nameless narrator remembering his experience from his past ....from childhood.
I have yet to read the book myself , now that I am curious myself but from one reviewer he said it is a novel that includes a lot of philophysing. It is written in a manner that make his reader feel what he was saying, to feel things like time passing through our lives and its effects on our memories.

In college , I took a philosophy class but we only touched 2 books . This anime has brought back some of those feelings . Somehow that book in the end made me think of deep things again but i .....

Psycho Pass is indeed written with a lot of deep thoughts from Urobuchi san...

I don't have any complaints about the ending. and this was the most philosophically stimulating anime that I've seen for quite some time.
On a side note -
MEGANE MODE!!


This is where he should have said, "if I don't wear glasses my deductive reasoning skills are reduced by 40%."

It's painfully realistic, and that's what I like about it. In a typical run-of-the-mill format, the Sybil System would have been destroyed and people would have somehow lived happily ever after with Kougami back into society.

The show projects a bittersweet ending, and I congratulate both Urobutcher and Production I.G for creating a great series, though a great plot-twist in the end would be that Kougami becoming the new Makishima.

No, the series was adapted into a manga. I don't think it will continue after where the series left off.
