Psycho-Pass 2 episode 05
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.
