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.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.

Both take place in unique worlds of their own with societies run in questionable manners, causing the characters to consider what is right and wrong in their culture and what they can do to affect it. Different they may be, but both series are entertaining, intense, and worthwhile for anyone to watch.

Both of these shows deal with the concept of human nature and the meaning of life. They go into mature themes, psycho-pass more so in that reigon though. Both of these shows also have the protagonist working in the government/military.

Mardock Scramble: The First Compression

Mardock Scramble: The First Compression

To stop the unstoppable you need the irresistible. To kill the un-killable, you need someone for whom death no longer has a meaning. And to catch the perfect serial killer, you need the one person who knows his methods the best… his last victim! Murdered and reborn, no longer human, the female cyborg named Balot exists for one reason: to track down the man who killed her and bring him to justice.

Riveting thrillers, both of these works will keep you on the edge of your seat. Both pertain to justice and crime in a future world where corruption is the norm. Both of these anime contain beautiful visuals and also graphic violence. If you liked one you will definitely like the other.

Psycho-Pass and Mardock Scramble are both fresh and stylish entries in the cyberpunk genre. The three-part Mardock Scramble movie series is definitely more style than substance, but it is entertaining style; it is a pleasure to look at. They are similar when it comes to investigation, with Psycho-Pass definitely having a police procedural feel to it. Both also feature handguns that are more than simple firearms, but rather are compelling aspects of both shows and in Mardock Scramble very much a character. For all of Mardock Scramble's style, there is little it does to bring anything astoundingly new, or add depth to the cyberpunk genre in general. I'm happy to have watched it once, but I don't see myself returning to it. On the flip-side, Psycho-Pass is a series any cyberpunk fan will likely want to re-watch and display proudly as a part of their anime collection.

Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate

The eccentric mad scientist Okabe, his childhood friend Mayuri, and the otaku hacker Daru have banded together to form the Future Gadget Research Laboratory, and spend their days in a ramshackle laboratory hanging out and occasionally attempting to invent incredible, yet generally useless, futuristic gadgets. However, their claymore is a hydrator and their hair dryer flips breakers, and the only invention that’s even remotely interesting is their Phone Microwave, which transforms bananas into oozing green gel. But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences...

Psycho-Pass is set in 2113. The Sibyl System (シビュラシステム Shibyura Shisutemu?) is actively measuring the populace's mental states, personalities, and the probability that individuals will commit crimes, using a "cymatic scan" of the brain. The resulting assessment is called a Psycho-Pass (サイコパス Saikopasu?). When the probability of a person engaging in crimes measured by the Crime Coefficient (犯罪係数 Hanzaikeisū?) index exceeds a certain level in an individual, he or she is pursued, apprehended, and killed if necessary.

Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.

The settings of both series seem to be the same: dark, gritty, and futuristic with some pretty kick-ass technology. That aside, the animation in both seem pretty top-notch, the music is amazing (in fact, the ED theme in Psycho-Pass is performed by EGOIST, a fictional band within Guilty Crown created by ryo of supercell with the vocalist Chelly), and both seem to have protagonists who seem to be initially weak in the sense of fighting, but are called upon to fight anyways. I should probably add that these are both Production I.G. anime, so I suppose its only natural that the animation seems so similar.
