Psycho-Pass 2 episode 03

Our eventful adventure continues and I already noticed certain things that basically take away the element of unpredictability. I don’t like that. Psycho-pass has always been rather unpredictable due to its twists.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_01.40_[2014.10.24_22.50.05]Anyway, I cannot deal with this enemy. The guy is a nut job. The last one had a clear idea of what was wrong and was going about it the “right way”. This guy just cuts people open, removes body parts and manipulates them. He is truly worthy of the title of monster. He just shines a whole new light on the concept of insanity.

I’m also not a big fan of inspector Risa. She may seem like a badass at times, but she breaks quite easily. She thinks that she feels comfortable whenever she’s holding a dominator, one of those badass guns. I honestly couldn’t care less about her and wouldn’t mind at all if she were to never enter the spotlight ever again.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 03 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_12.14_[2014.10.24_22.50.27]I was kind of surprised to see how people reacted to inspector Akane’s report. They all think she’s slowly losing her mind and wrote that message on her own wall herself. There are no logs of anyone entering her home and doing that to her wall, and it seems that the owner is the only one that can avoid getting logged. It even escalated to the point where she went to see a criminal in a high security facility for advice. It seems that she trusts his judgement and thinks that he might be able to help her find out what’s happening right now. I guess the sh*t’s about to hit the fan.

Parasyte episode 03

Another eventful Parasyte episode. I must say that this one really got me thinking about what to expect from Parasyte. Quite frankly, I am not sure that I like what I’m seeing here. This episode was quite worrying if you stop to think about it.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.52_[2014.10.23_23.18.16]So a couple of parasites joined the big picture. I thought that Shinichi, having gained a little bit of power through that parasitic friend of his, would’ve become a parasite hunter and exterminated all of them. I kept in mind the fact that Migi merely wants to survive and prefers to avoid any and all conflict with other parasites if he can. This puts Shinichi, who wants to kill all human-eating parasites, in a very weird place, especially now that he has to deal with two of them, one of which may be more intelligent and experience than him and Migi.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.23_[2014.10.23_23.18.51]Okay, so let’s talk about this “A” guy. He is not on that woman’s level yet, but he poses an immediate threat now that he’s standing face to face with Shinichi. Will he win though? Probably not. I’d be amazed if Shinichi and Migi ended up victorious again without even a scratch on ‘em. I’m fine with them continuing their winning streak, but keep it a little bit more realistic (and I am using that term loosely right now).

And finally, that woman… She is actually Shinichi’s math teacher and knows whom he cherishes the most. She actually has a hostage that she could harm whenever she pleases, basically ensuring Shinichi’s full cooperation. She planned it all out and she is probably more experienced than Migi, making her a very big threat. This is going to get rough…

Psycho-Pass 2 episode 02

A new season, a new enemy, a new goal and new characters. How lovely. I didn’t write about the first season because it seemed like a longshot, but I am glad that I got the opportunity to write about the second season instead.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 02 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_04.49_[2014.10.17_23.01.15]Anyway, Akane managed to successfully capture that criminal before her colleagues killed him due to him having a level high enough for lethal use of those awesome weapons. Akane confronted him and made him see reason, after which is level went down so that they could take him out without having to kill him. This led to his capture and interrogation where he appeared to be completely insane. He may not have been seeing things, seeing as that accomplice of his really does exist, but that doesn’t change the fact that he was mentally insane and still became a murderer in the end.

[Ohys-Raws] Psycho-Pass 2 - 02 (CX 1280x720 x264 AAC).mp4_snapshot_16.44_[2014.10.17_23.01.37]I find it beautifully ironic how Akane’s methods are being questions right now by that rookie. I can remember Akane in her rookie days. She, too, sometimes questioned the decisions of her superiors and often did things her way. That’s why I find it hard to dislike that rookie. She may be a little naïve right now, but she shows a lot or promise.

The one thing that I still find hard to believe is that Akane chose to remain quiet about the Sibyl System and continued with her work as a police officer. I would’ve thought that that would’ve been enough for her to lose faith in the system. That is why I love this show; things sometimes don’t make sense at first. It makes things less predictable.

Parasyte episode 02

Awww yeah! Parasyte just keeps getting better and better. I am not at all a big fan of dubstep, but Parasyte makes it work! Certain scenes are just so much better with dubstep in the background. Very well done, Japan. To think that this type of music, which was created in 1990 or 1991 I believe, has become incredibly popular over the past year.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.20_[2014.10.16_23.15.42]So the protagonist, Shinichi, is trying to get used to his new parasitic friend. It is noticeable how little he tries to use that hand. He obviously doesn’t trust that parasite, whom has been given the name Migi. Can I blame him for that? No. The first thing he did was grope the heroine’s breasts (good job, Migi) and during this episode he knocked a bully, whom was bullying Shinichi because he was jealous of his relationship with Satomi-chan, a few metres away. I am pretty sure the guy lost consciousness for a couple of seconds before he ran away screaming.

[HorribleSubs] Parasyte - the maxim - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.02_[2014.10.16_23.15.55]Shinichi is having a very hard time with all of this newfound information. He know knows that people are being slain by those mysterious parasites, but he also realizes that some people just aren’t worth saving. He assumes that Migi will just help him defeat all of those hostile parasites, which is a terrible miscalculation on his part.

Migi is brilliant. I love that character. That create is obviously far more intelligent than your average human being and does everything in a way that ensures his survival. He puts himself before anything else and has no problems making that very clear to Shinichi. That being said, how long will Migi stay passive when Shinichi is constantly putting them in danger by seeking out hostile parasites? This will seriously be very interesting.

Psycho-Pass 2

I am pretty sure that most people could see this one coming. Psycho-Pass turned out to be a great success. When I read about all that I immediately realized that a second season was soon forthcoming. After all, if you find yourself in possession of a cow that squirts out pure gold, you’d naturally milk that puppy dry.

Psycho-Pass 2Artwork; awesome. Summarizing the artwork with that one word is more than enough. It just looks too damn good.

I was surprised to see how Akane-chan has grown. I remember the fragile, easily influenced Akane from season one. Now she’s a badass, seasoned cop that doesn’t take no for an answer. Well done, Akane-chan!

I do recommend this. The story can be quite hectic at times, but that is one of the things that make it great. Watch the first season if you haven’t already and enjoy!

Plot Summary: Having learned the true nature of the Sybilla System, Akane Tsunemori chose to obey the system, believing in both humanity and the legal order. She’s part of a new police section and spends her everyday life facing down criminals. Unbeknownst to Akane, however, a monster who will shake the system to its core is about to appear before her.
