>>135692373 If it's a computer and wasn't a main plot point it would have been much better. As brains a bunch of things like crime coefficients "criminally asymptomatic" people and them not being able to even stun the main antagonist make no sense.
>Season 1 I hated it >Season 2 I really fucking hated it >Movie I hared it less than season 2 but more than season 1. I hope a 3rd season comes out so I can continue to subjugate myself to watching retarded shit that I hate.
>>135692301 You see, debates like these is exactly why Psycho Pass is such an interesting and increasingly more relevant work: gun law simply doesn't work. You can either throw yourselves into the arms of a hobbesian state that will "ensure" your protection or you can protect yourself trusting your own flawed human judgement.
I'm by no means an authoritarian, even though I'm able recognize the virtues of one such government, but I do believe that one's personal freedom is of supreme value. Also, gun control just aggravates violence. Just look at Brazil, they are very restrictive about it but that doesn't stop Tyrone from killing all his enemies in the slums or that whitey that happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. What do I know? Maybe gun laws are just a politically correct form of eugenics, having the poor remain stupid and violent (if not stupider and more violent). And I don't even own guns, hell, I never even fired a shot in my life.
Maybe one day we'll have Sybil to sort these things out for us. Better an absolute moral compass than several conflicting ones, I suppose.
>>135692861 The idea that gun laws don't help and that firearms simply cannot be controlled is utterly ludicrous. Australia did it a decade ago and their gun crime rates dropped significantly, and mass shootings basically dissapeared. Gun control laws do work, the US just has a nearly unstoppable gun lobby and a really poorly worded constitutional amendment.
>>135692780 If Sybil had unlocked the gun despite his crime coefficent being 0, the MC (I don't even remember her name) would have known that Sybil was some kind of sentient entity and I think keeping that a secret was of supreme importance to them.
>>135693008 No see this is the retarded part. It could have just had his crime coefficient show up as like 120. they never would have known anything.
And plus I don't see why his crime coefficient wasn't super high in the first place. Sybil clearly knew who he was and that he was committing a bunch of crimes. His crime coefficient level was 0 because lolplotdevice.
>>135693077 It is stupid that they never revealed how he was able to keep his coefficient at 0. Supposedly, that means that Sybil can't read him or determine his probability to commit a crime. But at the same time, they're watching him slit a girl's throat.
>>135693077 The idea was that essentially the brain of the person themselves gave off some sort of guilty signal or certain "criminal" types of brainwaves that that Sybil could detect and someone being a criminal was based on that. It's not foolproof but I've accepted stupider plot devices.
>>135693163 Yeah but if that's the case Sybil might as well be a computer. If it's a bunch of brains it should be able to go "oh hey this guy is committing tons of crimes wow we should do something about that" and "let's just stun him and get his brain".
>>135693307 I wasn't really under the impression that the Sybil system was actually watching these events unfold. I thought it only got brain data from the cymatic scanners and used that to make judgments. That's also pretty dumb but that's the explanation.
>>135692023 Almost finished rewatching season juan. Probably won't rewatch season two. While season two may be pretty bad compared to S1, it is still better than a good majority of anime out there. I haven't watched the movie yet, and have no real motivation to. I just want another cool sci-fi anime like Psycho-Pass to happen again.
>>135693001 I don't want do derail this thread any further, even if I feel that this is relevant to the show's themes, but those statistics you speak of are generally more complicated to digest than what you make it seem. I suggest you read this article, anon, it's very interesting. http://www.mintpressnews.com/the-facts-that-neither-side-wants-to-admit-about-gun-control/207152/
>>135693303 It just means that you're making a piece of technology worse. Imagine if you were legally obligated to winde a clock and that "automatic assault clocks" are now illegal. Doesn't make sense. Do you think the military or the police would adopt such a thing? And would they carry such weapons when off duty? Of course not.
I don't agree that Billy jacked on meth would be unable to go about his killing spree considering that there are more guns in the US than there are people. I wish I knew what the solution was for the gun violence without naming, of course, apartheid.
>>135693776 Texas has a bad reputation outside of the US, but the more I learn about the place, I can only assume that it's the last remnant of American in the US.
I really enjoyed the first season since I'm a huge sucker for cyberpunk-esque shit, but so far I've been avoiding the second because all I've heard is how awful it is. Is it at least worth a watch or will it taint my memory of the first season?
>>135693995 like >>135693657 said, it's pretty good by anime standards, just kind of meh compared to season 1. It won't taint your memory of the first season, you just won't remember season 2 the way you do season 1.
>>135693995 It's not a terrible movie, but it's not as good as the first season. It's worth watching, as it ties up a few loose ends in the first season, and it goes deeper into how Sybil works. >>135694077 The movie didn't make much sense compared to the series and most of it took place in a third world country. I liked it for the explosions and shitty english
>>135693995 My two cents: it's just really, really bad compared to the first season. I would skip it, honestly, specially the movie which is completely pointless. Again: the second season only sucks because it had to live to the expectations of previous one. As it's own thing, it's fine, I guess, though I doubt anyone would call it genuinely good.
Skip it, anon, you can use your newly gained free time to watch some good 80s stuff like Gunbuster, or other good sci-fi shows like Kaiba.
The second season isn't bad. No, its not as good as the first season, but its still interesting and explores some cool idea and concepts in the world that was created. I'd recommend watching it and making your own opinions. It's no where near as bad as the dive Rebuild 3.33 took from the series.
>>135693001 There's no correlation between homicide rate and gun ownership. Of course gun crime went down, but it's no consolation to be stabbed or bludgeoned to death, violence and death is the same regardless of tool.
Season one started off kind of odd, with the typical plot dumps and rookie cop drama things. But it got pretty good pretty fast, it had interesting character development, the twists were reasonable and it had a good antagonist. I especially liked how they managed to keep the balance of power believable. I've seen too much anime shift almost OP advantages from antagonists to protagonists from episode to episode but the way they ultimately found Shougo and how it ended were pretty well written.
Then season two came along and pretended to be retarded for four or five episodes. I was ready to drop it since they made it seem like the new antagonist had pretty much the same idea and means as Shougo, but they managed to make him interesting just in time. Ultimately, I didn't enjoy it as much as S1 and it wasn't as well written. They had a lot to work with, but decided it was best to not work on Mika's character at all and dump a ton of 'twists' at the end. The last episode was good, which is why I watched the movie.
The movie sucks. No character development, no impact on the world established in the two seasons. The movie made it seem the relationship between Akane and Kogami would be fleshed out or at least see some resolve, but they decided to shit all over themselves by letting Kogami go and that awful dialouge between Akane and Ginoza. 'btw Kogami escaped because my Dominator broke, even though I can hold my own against him in hand to hand combat and swore we'd take him in.' >'Oh, that's ok.' >'btw don't think about him. He's below you. He doesn't deserve you. He's just a terrorist now.' >'Oh, you're right. I spent a few days with him and talked to him and he didn't seem to have changed and we even talked about motives, but I should probably pretend you're right. Oh Gino, you're always trying to take the burden xD' Bad movie.
>incredibly technologically advanced society >we have magic guns and scanners that can tell if you are someone who would commit crimes >we find out that the murderer has been dodging our magic "you're a bad person" scanners so he can do his crimes undetected >they don't find this out until after >they have a database that has a full record of every Japanese citizen's magic criminality scans >for some reason, when developing this whole system, no one's ever thought to code some software that alerts the police when someone hasn't had a checkup in months
>a guy with a helmet murders somebody >OMG guys without our magic guns and magic scanners to tell us who is a criminal >WE HAVE NO LEAD!!!! >they worry about this for 20 minutes of the episode like this is an actual problem >the problem is resolved by Ko going "I GOT IT! We'll do a BACKGROUND CHECK of the victim to look at people who would have a possible motive to want her dead, and those will be the suspects we investigate! I'm so smart!" >this was a ground-breaking and clever idea that resolves the problem of the episode
>most predictable fucking deaths of all time, every character who dies is sure to give you a dozen obvious death flags ahead of time
>let's just keep reminding the audience that Ko is just a dog of the police. Let's have him give some speeches about it. And then when he runs from the police, we'll have a bit where we inform the audience that he is now a WILD DOG. WOW FUCKING BRAVO UROBUCHI
It's amazing that you guys like to talk about taste all day and muh mature animes but liked this retarded piece of shit that dares to call itself science fiction. Urobuchi is a hack.
