Psycho Pass is an amazing anime for several different reasons.

1. All-star voice cast.

Kana Hanazawa out of the moe comfort zonecouldn't have been more sexy. She plays as Akane and when things start to get turned up a notch and you start seeing emotional moments/high stress moments, you really start to see her range shine, making you wish she did this more often. Obviously the rest of the cast is glorious (Miyuki Sawashiro playing a "dirty" chick makes me swoon), but you'll be hearing a lot of Akane as she's the main protagonist, and it couldn't have turned out better.

2. Interesting moral themes/concepts.

Some anime knows how to make you think and this is one of those. There's something special about a show that puts you, as the viewer, in a position to question the your own ideals. The whole idea behind the Sibyl system and how society works is a driving communicable concept that you are constantly asking yourself "does this really make sense?". Being able to think beyond what's on the screen is something that gives this anime depth.

3. Glorious animation.

This is an "anime-original" series, so there was no manga basis. This allowed them to truly craft a world at the tip of their imaginations and from the very first episode you feel it. I would consider the style of the seinen variety, as there's pretty much zero anime-esque kawaii jokes. The first thing you'll notice is that it's kind of different from what you're typically used to, but that adds to Psycho Pass's charm more than anything.

4. Amazing Score.

The composer for this show was Hiroyuki Sawano, who did the tracks behind Guilty Crown and is currently working on Attack on Titan. If you've seen either of these shows, you'd know full well what his capabilities are. The music is intense and gratifying, on a movie-epic-level scale.

5. A truly amazing villain

Lastly, the villain to this series is outstanding.

I strongly recommend this series to anyone...

It's getting a second season and a movie in an era where getting more than 13 episodes is almost taboo in the anime industry. That's how good it is. Watch it.

If I may, I didn't think it was all that amazing. I watched it all and I thought, "That was a cool show." And then when I see what everyone else thought, people were saying it was a masterpiece and all that lol.

I'm just saying if you don't expect too much out of it you're less likely to be disappointed. It was definitely a good show though.

I thought it was a really good show. When it was airing each week I wanted to see what game next. While I thought it was amazing, remember that it is just my opinion. Don't want you going in expecting pure joy and awesome distilled into the form of an anime and getting disappointed. But most people I've seen talk about it liked it. There were a few that thought it was garbage, but again, opinions.

As there already is a Psycho Pass topic I'm closing this one as duplicate.
