I love Nichijou, from the two episodes I've watched of it (I seriously need to get back to it).

The best way I can describe it: Imagine the most exaggerated, random or worst case scenario of how a person feels what could possibly happen in a normal, everyday situation or accident, and someone put it into animated form. (i.e.-- bumping into someone and causing a devastating, catastrophic explosion that would wipe out millions. )

Psycho-Pass Ep.1 - 3



It's like a mixture of Minority Report, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?/Blade Runner, & Judge Dredd. Really digging this show so far.

Time of Eve.

Its a short 6 episode series set in the not too distant future, where humans have become almost reliant on androids in their day to day lives. They're treated as appliances and looked upon with indifference, despite the majority of them looking identical to flesh and blood people, and any close relationship between human and robot is seen almost as taboo. Time of Eve is an underground cafe that has only one rule: there's no discrimination between humans and robots. Androids visiting deactivate their status rings when inside, which is a holographic halo that circles an android's head identifying them as robots. It draws heavily on Asimov and his Three Laws of Robotics, but delves a lot deeper into what makes a person a person and the relationships between man and AI than say I, Robot did. It's a really great piece of science fiction anime, i hope it gets a second series that it leaves itself open for, but it can easily live in its own.

It gets a hell of a lot better around episode 9 or 10. Just wait. I almost bailed at the beginning because it was just above average (for a modern anime) and I have a lot of other stuff to do. I'm not all caught up on all the episodes myself, yet.

Interesting. Definitely not planning on bailing on this series. I'm on episode 5 now (taking this one in slowly) and I still find this show beyond intriguing. Plus the intro for the show alone has me hooked.

I like the original opening and ending too. Of course they later replace both of them with something I like less.

The FT mystery I'm talking about is something I can't get into depth without spoiling. I'll just say it was hinted at with Lucy's mom, then the Dragon's, then a character named Zeref, and now carried on in the current arc. It's like a large web in the background with bits being shown throughout the series, but never taking center stage. Still though, the fights aren't always well thought out, and too easily become lopsided.

As for HunterXHunter being very loved, I can understand that. It's a solid series that goes at it's own pace. It's just more of a personal thing with me. The Chimera Ant arc started to go a bit downhill (IMO), and then it goes on hiatus forever. It did eventually come back and get good again, but by then I had kind of been soured on it. Then it goes on hiatus again right in the middle of the climax of the arc. Then comes back, finishes the arc, does one little tiny arc, sets up something that could be really interesting, and goes on hiatus again. It's a series worth sticking too, but if you've been following it for awhile...it gets sooooo frustrating, lol.



In fact, the last issue was released March this year. I'm guessing the next issue won't be until sometime next year. If he's waited this long, chances are he'll wait until after New Years.
If you're interested in watching it in a row the chimera ants arc is going to be animated:

Oh my goodness! Dude about episode 11:
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
you weren't kidding about things getting even better, I sort of figured Makishima figured a way to avoid being detected by the dominator but it was still a pretty powerful moment nonetheless. I felt bad for Akane's friend though.
Oh and I completely agree about the new opening. It's so awful in comparison to the 1st. Not only is the visual not creative (it's just a montage of clips) but the song itself is just dreadful. The 1st opening is lightyears better.

Now I'm going to try and kill ep. 12 - 21.

Psycho Pass EP. 12 - 21 since Tuesday/Wednesday night/morning respectively.

Dammit I wanted to catch the Simulcast of Psycho Pass so badly but I'm going to miss it by 2 hours because of work.

I wanted to experience the finale with the whole world.

Se la vie.

Same here, season 1 was great. Season 2's okay, but his cousin crushing on him is annoying, tropey, pointless, and stupid.

Psycho-Pass completed (22 episodes)

The ending: Everything up to Kogami shooting Makishima was well handled. Akane's got some sweet moves. While I'm glad they didn't have Kogami not kill Makishima, in many ways they reset right back to square one where the show started, which is just potential sequel bait I guess. The Sibyl system lives on, despite Akane's outburst. I suppose Kogami becomes the next Makishima. I suppose.

VERDICT: Good to very good but not a classic...yet. Is this supposed to have a second season?

Psycho Pass
(entire series)

A masterpiece. The philosophical pondering of morality and the price of progression in order to achieve justice to deliver "peace" have never quite been as eloquently displayed as they have in this here series.


Even without a second season the message of Psycho Pass was a very poignant one. What's the price of justice and what do we have to sacrifice (Akane staying subservient yet morally reluctant towards the Sibyl System and Kogami becoming the immovable object to Makishimas unstoppable force).


Beautiful, introspective and most of all powerful.

As for the ending:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I didn't take it as Kogami replacing Mikishima. Kogami while understanding the actions of Mikishima completely detested his abhorrent ways. The restart showed how differently Akane was handling her job as Inspector in comparison to Ginzo who made the differentiation between the enforcers in a way that dehumanized them. Akane opted out for that and makes it very clear that they are in fact human but go about finding criminals in a "different" way.

As for Kogami I firmly believe he didn't turn into a Makishima type. The whole point of the series was that Kogami found Makishima's actions completely abhorrent and a desperate act for attention. While Kogami understood him better than anyone else it's that very reason that brought so much disgust towards him. It was a classic instance of "What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?". In this case though Kogami was able to trivialize this entire concept by tearing Makishima down and destroying him. This irresistible force paradox that Makishima was so confident about was turned upside down by Kogami's determined will to erase Makishima from existence.

The book he's reading at the end "Swann's Way" deals with a whole bunch of themes and apparently one of those is that time is a constant which would go perfectly with Akane's quote about Kogami and Makishima's fate being determined from the very beginning.


As for their being a second season I would guess that all depends on how well the DVD/Blu Ray ends up selling in Japan and overseas (mainly Japan). I'm perfectly fine with this ending but I certainly wouldn't mind a sequel as long as it's written by Urobuchi.

Is Psycho-Pass worth watching? I heard many fans got disapointed.

Heard Fate/ Zero was amazing, is the plot that good?

I'd certainly say Psycho-Pass is worth watching to the end. I might even watch it again if there's ever a dub.
