In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they're considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl's judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.
In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".
Both series involve very resilient female characters who live in a dystopic future. Each main character, in her own way, undertakes a journey of discovery which is highly personal, but also takes a long, hard look at the methods of control which govern her society.
As far as Cyberpunk and Futuristic themes go, these are great choices. Though Ergo Proxy became an instant classic, Psycho Pass is a great follow up. What else do you need? Action, suspense, and great fast paced artistry.
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.
