Psycho-Pass

Mar 23, 2013

My first impression of Psycho-pass was that someone was trying to recreate Death Note. It gew on me, however, and I've ultimately decided that it is a quietly good show which really tears into questions of morality and society.

Good Points

-Really meaty themes: justice, controlling society, morality, good vs evil, etc.

-Never crosses over into cliches.

-Beautiful atmosphere, really fits the themes.

-Intriguing characters who wrestle with holding a complicated position in society/the story.

-Interesting end which was believable, resolved and yet didn't resolve. Good balance.

Bad Points

-Some one-dimensional characters/nothing really redeeming about the "evil" ones.

-Story gets off track here and there for no apparent purpose.

I'd say this a solidly above average show. Recommended for those who like a more mature/complex/nuanced take on the "good vs. evil" plot.
