Summary
Brace yourself for a hard boiled, sci-fi thriller from the creator of Madoka Magica and the studio that brought you Ghost in the Shell. Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to enough to make you guilty. Bad intentions can no longer be hidden, and the police know exactly which tainted minds are about to cross over to the wrong side of the law. The great equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the risk that a citizen will turn criminal. Cops work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all. Society is paralyzed by its deepest, darkest desires, and trial by jury has been replaced by the wrath of the Dominator. Welcome to the future. How guilty are you? Contains episodes 1-22. The Complete First Season.
Review
You may think that in anime dark dramas of dystopian futures are a dime a dozen but this work from Production IG is cut from a different cloth. Psycho-Pass is one of those rare delights Ė exceptional in every aspect. A potent psychological thriller with incredible animation and a stellar story line it totally keeps you on the edge of your seat until the conclusion.

Psycho-Pass Complete Season 1

Not since Ghost in the Shell has such a powerful and compelling vision of the future been depicted onscreen.

Psycho-Pass Complete Season 1

The narrative is supported by a team of fascinating characters. Both strong protagonists and mysterious antagonists collide in a world where the limits are set by an omnipotent system of law. In this world, it is the analysis of a person's soul that determines their place in society and their ultimate destiny. It's both a dream and a nightmare where morality, identity and freedom are in constant flux, making for thought provoking watching indeed.

Psycho-Pass Complete Season 1

You don't need to be an intellectual to enjoy the series but Psycho-Pass will reward viewers who do like to delve a little deeper with their entertainment. There are a stack of references to great writers and great thinkers in the margins of the show but also in the banter between enforcer Kougami Shinya and the mysterious Makishima Shougo.

Psycho-Pass Complete Season 1

It is powerful, both visually and conceptually and there is some incredible character development to make this a great series for newcomers to anime who enjoy intense drama and intelligent entertainment.

Rating: 10/10
