My post sure is late today. Had company over in order to help us make lots of yummy stuff for Christmas. Needless to say that my belly will never be empty during these days. God I love this time of the year.
Anyway, I must say that I am not really satisfied with this ending. I am not satisfied at all. I expected a lot more from this second season, and let it be said that I don’t think a third season will be forthcoming any time soon. A lot of fans did not respond well to this apparently, which is not at all surprising in my humble opinion.
Nothing actually got finished, you know? Sure, some of the bad guys are dead, but the funny thing about that is that there’s always a new one waiting just around the corner. That is why I do not acknowledge this is a proper ending, despite it being a pretty good episode. It should’ve gone a little bit differently, that’s all.
I already knew that Kamui was not the one that killed Akane’s grandmother. He may resort to violence in order to achieve his goals, but Akane was never really his target. She posed no immediate threat. She merely wanted justice served, which is something he used to his advantage all this time. It became obvious to anyone that that insane enforcer was the one that killed her grandmother in order to make Akane go bad, which failed miserably. In the end Akane just went back to serving the Sybil System and that insane enforcer got what he deserved.Read More
Oh come on, we could all see this one coming. No time to act surprise, people. The only thing that surprises me is the amount of Psycho-Pass fans that are now rooting for Kamui’s attempt to destroy the Sibyl System once and for all.
Yeah, I won’t lie; I am one of those people that are rooting for Kamui right now. He was a product that was created by an infamous professor that is now part of the Sibyl System. You could very well say that Kamui is trying to destroy the one that did those things to him. You really cannot blame him for being so messed up. They experimented so much on him that he lost part of his humanity. He’s probably going to commit suicide when and if he succeeds in destroying the Sibyl System. I honestly can see that happening at this point in time.
And Akane? Yeah. I honestly see her taking Kamui’s side sooner than the system’s side. I don’t think that Kamui’s really the one that harmed Akane’s grandmother. I could be wrong, of course, but I somehow feel as though that Sakuya Tougane guy is the one that pulled the strings that led to her grandmother’s suffering.
One thing is certain; Akane is not going to let either of them have their way. She doesn’t want anybody to get killed. She wants them to be brought to justice. That’s the kind of personality she has, which is why you cannot break her easily. It is one of the reasons that I am currently hoping to see her destroy that evil system once and for all.Read More
Okay, I won’t go into extreme details, but I just threw up. That was not a joke. I really am sick and I really am going to keep this post short. It’s bad enough that I was too motivated to do the same to this week’s Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso post.
So poor Akane got herself more enemies to deal with. She has to watch her back because of Sibyl and her front because of Kamui. Her hue might actually skyrocket next week. All I know is that it takes a whole lot to break that tough girl, but when you might actually succeed when you go for her grandmother like that.
Did Kamui actually do that? I don’t know. He would be playing right into the hands of the Sibyl System if he did. If anything, Akane is one of the few ways to destroy that system once and for all. She knows the location and the details. She must know a way to destroy it. I for one hope so, because she might have to if Sibyl really is hostile. Just two more episodes…Read More
Okay, I am forced to keep today’s posts short. I am ill and unbelievably tired. I am going to write and schedule these posts and go straight to bed. I just hope I make without falling asleep on top of my keyboard.
So there has been yet another twist, huh? That is why I could never really see Kamui as pure evil. The guy is really smart and he is thorough. The way he does things may be very extreme, but he does make valid points when he talks about their system. Someone like that cannot be classified as pure evil when there’s a chance that they might be right.
It seems that the Sibyl System has plans of its own. We all knew that enforcer was in on it, seeing as they went out of their way to point out to us that there was something wrong with him, but to think their relationship is that sick… Boy… Akane-chan has her work cut out for her. She might actually have to join up with Kamui in order to take down that system.Read More
I am once again running out of time. I have to keep one of today’s two posts short, so I have chosen that it should be Psycho-Pass since this episode was kind ‘expected’. This episode should be granted the title “duh!” if you ask me.
I think the only thing worth mentioning is that scene with a little smidge of lesbianism, although we didn’t get to see much. The deed had already been done, you see. If they wanted an episode that would force the ratings to skyrocket, well… They should show what happened and the ratings would surely improve (not to mention tissue stocks).
All joking aside; we did not know that that enforcer was keeping an eye on Akane’s mental stability? So what if all the detectives that he used to serve went bad? That happens. I doubt it’ll happen to Akane though. She’s as unmoving as a rock. Besides, she’ll be quite busy looking for people that look like those holo’s. She won’t have time to go bad.Read More
Is this going to be a regular thing? A new Psycho-Pass airs, people finish watching it and then hit the forums to b*tch about this “bad guy” character. Get over it. The guy is an excellent bad guy and I see no reason why I, too, should waste my time posting on forums. It’s bad enough that I come across those topics in the first place.
I must admit that this bad guy is a little weird. He is smart and thinks things through really well, but his motive remains a complete mystery. What is his goal? Is Akane right? Is the guy just collecting Dominators? I mean, the guy took away an eye from that female inspector, whom now follows him everywhere for some reason, in order to exchange it for one of his. How insane is that? You take away someone’s eyes, trade it for one of yours and you do it just to be able to use a dominator… I can’t stop myself from asking why.
The guy is completely obsessed with Akane. He studied her every day and made her his top target for some reason. That is why I am wondering about his obsession for Dominators. I don’t really see the connection between Dominators and Akane. Is he planning to kill Akane with a Dominator? I doubt her hue is going to get clouded any time soon…
I think Akane has to give up on Dominators for the time being. They are useless against that guy. She just needs to get herself a nice assault rifle and go psycho hunting. I think people think that she doesn’t have it in her, and they may be right about that, but even Akane will snap if you keep killing her friends and colleagues.Read More
I found this episode very amusing because of one simple reason: a lot of anime geeks, myself not included this time, spent quite a lot of time flaming because things are going the way they had hoped. It seems this new enemy isn’t liked very much.
I wonder why? This enemy might be a little smarter and more cunning than the last, but his objective his pretty much the same and his methods aren’t that much different. It’s true that this enemy might really like the idea of bloodshed in order to get what he wants more than the last guy, but murder is still murder, and it doesn’t matter how many times you do it. It’s just that the last enemy, whom could also avoid the Sibyl system by being able to manipulate his hue at will, was more focussed on destroying valuable resources than killing people.
Flame all you want, but you cannot deny that this new character is quite ingenious. The author(s) really did a good job with him. He infiltrated the station, let innocent people kill dozens of citizens by letting them think they’re playing some game, and he still isn’t getting caught despite all that. Nobody even knows what he looks like yet.
Am I in favour of this enemy? No. I liked the last one a bit better. His methods were a little more ‘noble’. This guy just seems to be playing around with people’s life. The other was straight to the point. He was serious about what he was doing from what I can remember. This guy is just playing cat and mouse right now, which will make his capture/death all the sweeter in the end.Read More
I am running out of time. I am therefor forced to keep this post short and simple, which will be an easy task. There are very few points that I want to address in this review. It was a pretty disappointing episode in the end.
It got to me. It really got to me that that old man just continued to murder people by bashing their heads in and that none of those people, whose hues were already through the roof anyway, attempted to defend themselves. The old man only had that robot dog and a stick. A dozen people should be more than enough to overpower them.
It also got to me that those officers shot one of their own without even thinking twice about whom they were shooting at. They even killed innocent people because their mental state was messed up by that lunatic. I can only hope that this inspired Akane to go her own way instead of listening to her colleagues or her evil boss.Read More
