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
Hmm, I heard about this too, but I wasn’t sure if I could believe it. I also heard about part of Migi staying within Shinichi’s body after getting stabbed in the hart, and I immediately believed it when I saw him run, jump and hear things from afar last week.
So Shinichi really did meet another person like him. I could not believe it when I was first told about it (please stop sharing spoilers), but yeah, he met a chubby dude whose chin has been invaded by a parasite. It is strange that I prefer that guy’s parasite over him, but there you have it. A chubby dude that tried to take his own life (and would have succeeded if he wasn’t such a coward) ended up with a parasite that took control of his chin. That just shines a whole new light on having one take over your right arm. I’d rather prefer that than having a parasite taking over (part of) my face.
So we met this guy and we got to see how Shinichi dealt with the parasite that killed his mother and then took control of her body. He was able to fight her off without even breaking a sweat. I don’t think he actually needed Migi. He could’ve just fought her using a katana or something. That is why I don’t like the fact that she was killed by that new guy. I really think that Shinichi should’ve been the one to finish her off.
Anyway, Shinichi returns home with a lot more experience, a superhuman body and a whole new look. He got rid of his glasses and changed his hairstyle. We are basically looking at a whole new Shinichi because of what happened during these past couple of weeks, and I must say that I like what I’m seeing.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
Wooh! Another great episode! Why did it take so long for this to get an anime adaption when the manga finished in 2007? This is a huge find! Parasyte has blown away all of my expectations and it has only been six weeks…
So Shinichi got pierced through the heart by the parasite that killed his mother and then took control of her body. He realized that his weakness, his hesitation could prove fatal. He would’ve died if it weren’t for Migi, whom relocated to where his heart used to be in order to make sure he survives. If Shinichi were to die then so would Migi, unless he attempted to relocate to another human being like the parasite that killed Shinichi’s mom. I knew that Shinichi would survive this ordeal, but no way could I have guessed that thirty percent of Migi’s cells would remain within Shinichi’s body, giving him superhuman abilities.
I have high hopes now. Now more than ever. Shinichi realized first-hand that those parasites have no mercy. They do not have the emotions necessary. This should’ve been the push he needed to become a real man. Stop being scared and stop doubting yourself and just let it all go. That’s what he needs right now.
There, I said it. He needs to grow a pair of balls, especially since his father is still in danger. That parasite plans to get rid of him. No witnesses. Shinichi knows this and plans to kill the parasite that killed and took control of his mother’s body. I like his new-found motivation to fight! I can only hope that he finds her soon.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
