I like the world of Psycho-Pass because it treads the line between a dystopia and a utopia.

Funny fact: Utopia means "no-where".

Yes. The entire book was the author going on an extended bitch fit rant about how everybody was a bunch of bastards and everyone sucked, all the time, everywhere.

It's more or less as involved in doing so as Candide, and Candide is pretty dragged in terms of belaboring one point or joke, too.

For what it's worth I think it, or something more or less using the plot but in a different context would also be pretty funny as an anime or cartoon, too. Or interesting anyway.

SSY was the better application of the phrase "dystopia" because it looks great at first glance. Everyone has special powers and is super happy, but look deeper and it's really fucked up.

Psycho-Pass established from the start that it's not a great place to live in, what with innocent people being killed because the computers say so.

>>134084726
There's no such thing as a utopia anon
>>
>>134084640
SSY is so much better than Psycho-Pass.
>>
>>134084726
That's pretty much all Dystopian fiction
>>
SSY was such an awkward show.
Something about it just felt wrong, yet I still don't know what.

You've yet to cope with the fact that Squealer was right perhaps?

Where the hell do you see any utopian tendencies in Psycho-Pass?
It's a flat-out dystopian nightmare.
>>
>>134087577
That's how it's meant to feel. The show had personality.
>>
>>134088639
it's between 1984 and Brave New World, the latter of which is utopian in the sense that every need of every citizen is "met" (and manufactured).
>>
>>134088108
The characters were awful and boring, which was a shame because the overall plot was pretty decent.
>>
>>134088836
Saki, Satoshi, Squealer and Kiromaru were good.
>>
Can anyone tell me what the second anime is called?
>>
>>134088108
thats what made it a dystopia. normal humans arnt just put down by the evil corporation/government, they were literally bred/changed into another species. Its a bad end.

>>134090531
You could have found it by searching for "ssy anime", and if that wasn't enough you could add "Squealer" too. Everything is in the thread.

It's called Shin Sekai Yori
