So, what do you think, lethal Dominator shot or a shotgun blast to the head from point blank range : which is more likely humane?

I thought it was a bit silly that the teacher could prevent Kogami from getting his shot off. He is so strong! And why did he go up alone? That was a bit of a lame plot device to ensure she got away and had her end in the fox hunt execution instead, which also let them learn the identity of Makishima in a reconstructed deleted security recording.

Otherwise it was a good episode but I actually stopped watching it the first time through after Kogami was manhandled off his shot by the principal.

It was probably a combination of surprise and not being willing to injure a civilian. Who knows what lawsuits are like in the future?

With Kogami's high psycho-pass value I don't think he is terribly worried about civilians. If I were him I would have aimed my Dominator at the principal right after that. The student's hue was off the charts! If the principal was knowingly protecting her then his hue should have been high too. I might have to watch it again to check that part or maybe someone remembers.

Well the principal stopped KOgami when he was about to shoot but its understandable that he wont point the dominator at him since he is not the target.

However , I am still a bit confused becuase the killer in the end had different eyebrow and has sideburns from the principal but their voices are the same.

I could be wrong, but I really don't think they are the same person. I think the voice was similar, but not the same.

Well thats what I was suspecting.

But speaking of voices ,

I really am glad that Nobuhiko Seki san is starting to have roles here and there again. I love his calm voice as Kogami a lot. He was Archer in Fate Zero and Ibuki in Hakuouki Prequel. I met him couple years ago and we had a picture together , he is so silly.

On the other hand, Sakurai san is really good in sounding so damm cold and evil .

So far I am digging the story of this anime, dark it maybe , thank you Urobuchi san , for another intersting story.

i have been rewatching the past episodes while working on my cosplay project and the best one that I liked was episode 3 , the Drone factory killer.
I am starting to call Kogami - Ko chan also, which reminds me on how I call sensei son.

I am really hooked with this title, I am just curious how Urobuchi san ends the story
.

More humane would have been the Dominator but after Rikako sliced up the girls (some alive)she deserved to be snagged by that trap and then shot. But she felt the terror.But yea It would have been a credit to Kogami if he got her and he could have used the Dominator on him maybe but it still would have delayed him.And who are Makishimas cohorts?

About the principal stopping Ko chan when he was about to shoot.Here is my take on that situation.

Well you see the weakest spot in our body is at any joints. I think that principal just got Ko chan at his elbow and besides he wasnt expecting he was going to jumped by him. Thats how I see it. I use to practise Aikido and In aikido, the attack points or locks are all at the joints , the wrist elbow shoulder ,knee, I dont think that principal knew aikido but he just got lucky ha ha ha ha.

Did she feel terror? I was not feeling terror from her. I think she had a feeling of inevitability at the end, and disappointment at being cast aside by her supporter. I think Makishima telling her she could not do any better was more painful than the bear trap.

Actually, most people in Japan have taken some judo, aikido or karatedo as part of high school so unless they took kendo they probably know some close fighting techniques including joint locks. Still seemed like Kogami was unprepaired which bothered me as usually his character seems 100% ready for anything.

]well I dont blame you since Ko chan does trains his body all the time as seen in episode 3 and 7

But the joints does not take much effort to fold especially in the position his arm is at , just from experience. There are position of the joints that you can hold the extension but otherwise it flexes pretty easily.
I am a small person but I can get those joints flexed and locked at any oppurtune moment whether you are big or not,

Aikido is pretty dangerous in a sence that one can break the joints. Believe me I have my share of joint injury from the dojo which is why I stopped for now . But I actually saw an aikido move in episode 2 by Matsuoka as they apprehend that young guy at the mall.. Police are taught aikido.

Also karate,judo,aikido and kendo are actually clubs in high school . I have met a lot of japanese but only a few studied any form of martial arts, excluding the ones I met in the dojo and over at Osaka , I miss everyone there.

Most of my co workers and friends in Japan took judo in high school. I saw some high school judo tournaments while there and they are really skilled! I also met a lot of rikishi (sumo wrestlers) and some acquaintances who had studied kendo. Must be a skewed sample but everyone I know there took some martial arts at some point. Would like to see them again too.

At any rate it just stood out to me. I think that scene could have been done some other way which would have been more believable.

I recommended this anime to a friend who normally dont watch any anime , he really liked it.

Cant wait to see the next episode and see how Makishima will manipulated Ko chan. Since this anime is slated for 22 episodes per ANN , I am excited how the story and characters develop more. I am glad this anime picked seiyuu that suit the other characters even though they are not that popular, well except for 4.
