If you liked the Psycho-Pass anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
STN is a secret organization charged with capturing witches of all ages who misuse their inate ability of the Craft. Its newest recruit is a young girl named Robin, who wields the same power that she is helping to control. While skillful at their ability to detain quickly, the number of witches keeps seeming to increase, and the misuse of power grows stronger, casting a shadow of doubt as to what is really going on. For STN, there is much work ahead, and for Robin, her troubles are just beginning...
Psycho-pass has technology, and Witch Hunter Robin has magic, but they both are fairly dark, gritty takes on the police procedural genre, and both show the depths people can sink to when they have power.
When police organizations use a member of a group to hunt down other members of that same group, things always get interesting. The plot of these two anime revolve around the drama that is created in exactly that situation, and offer a dark take on questions of right and wrong.
There are not enough ways to describe how similar these shows are. Psycho-Pass is basically an updated version of Witch Hunter Robin. A group of people, marginalized from society, tracking down others who have distubed the peace. They use special weapons that others can't use and look for criminals doing surprisingly similar crimes. The morality of the whole system that they base their world on is constantly called into question. There are many more themes and ideas in common (I even think some of the same voice actors were used), but it is definitely safe to say that if you liked one you will absolutely like the other.
In the present, murders are solved not by investigations, but by memories. Using the removed brain of a victim, the members of Forensic Investigation Office Section Nine examine the person's last thoughts to determine a suspect and motive in the case. Many oppose the violation of their loved ones' private and personal memories; but what they don't understand is that behind the scenes, even the investigators themselves are often conflicted with their deeds. Aoki Ikko is one such man who struggles to overcome his own mental doubts about his profession, while trying his best to take down those responsible for the crimes.
Both shows are set in a "dark and gritty" futuristic world that focuses on a special group of people solving crimes in their own unique ways. Great characters, interesting enough crimes, these 2 shows will keep you coming back for more if you are into these kind of sci-fi thrillers so check them out.
Both of these anime use seemingly futistic technology that can seem to crack into the brain to solve cases. HIMITSU actually using people's brains and PSYCHO-PASS that uses brain scanning technology to make a profile of the person. Also, both anime are about criminal process and the characters of each anime seem to become obssesed with solving that one hard to solve case.
Japan has reclaimed its former glory under the guidance of Kings, charismatic individuals wielding incredible powers. But now, one of the Red King's vassals has been murdered, and a viral video shows the killer's confession at the scene. He is one Yashiro Isana, claiming to be the Colorless King; and he is now a wanted man - not only to the Red King's faction, but also the Blues charged with keeping the peace. He is even sought by Kuroh Yatogami, a knight of the former Colorless King sworn to slay any unworthy successor. Only, the subject of their struggle, "Shiro", is a nondescript young man living an unremarkable life in an island academy, and seems to have no recollection of killing anyone. To keep his life, Shiro must prove his innocence; but what is the truth behind his mysterious past, and what will be the outcome of this confrontation of Kings?
Psycho-pass has their own mystery. Just like anime K, their own mystery are awesome. Pyscho-pass is about real world and same as K. With the one squad to protect the city, K also have it. With the best story-line, you must watch it if you want to know the real mystery and the shocking climax!
Both set in a modern and futuristic Japan, Psycho-Pass and K explore the conflicts between various societal groups in an attempt to uncover the truth about what really happened in the past.
In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?
Although these two series take place in very different worlds, they are both shows packed with emotional, powerful storylines and plenty of action (though Claymore is more bloody). The concepts behind the stories are also different, but both are attention-grabbing, intense, and entertaining. If you enjoyed the quality of the story in one, you should enjoy the other.
In the year 2808, criminals are no longer just wasting space in prison cells. The Cyber Police have turned to using these “patrons” by giving them a choice. Their sentence, or to work with them to catch other criminals and knock some years off their sentence. But getting off easy isn't, as each criminal is fitted with booby trapped collar that operates on a 24 hour cycle, stopped ONLY if they capture their intended targets. As time runs out on each case, someone's head must roll... the target's, or their own!
Both series portray a gritty cyberpunk world and use future Japan as the setting. Not only do the shows revolve around police work, but also how the police forces use convicts to aid in their cases. Pyscho-pass and Cyber City Oedo 808 are great additions to the cyberpunk genre, and should not be missed.
