The series takes place in 2113, where the mental state, personal tendencies, and every inclination of a human can be
instantly measured and quantified into numbers and thusly measuring a person's criminal tendency factor. These measured
numbers used to judge peoples' souls are often called 'Psycho-Pass'.
Tsunemori Akane is the new Inspector recently assigned to Unit one of the Public Safety Bureau's Criminal Investigation Division. This is the story of this team of policemen dedicated to maintaining public order in such a world.
This anime is my 2012's unexpected nice surprise. The animation is great, Akira Amano's character design is superb and I especially love the irony of Makishima Shogo's choice weapon - an old fashioned shaving knife (despite the futuristic setting when even guns are an antiquity). I also like it that by episode 17, I sort of started to understand Makishima's reasons although I've been hating his guts right off the bat (but I still think he's evil). And yes, I would watch the sequel if they ever decided to make one.Alenas rated 9.50:
That aside, the show was actually one of the best shows of the season and one of the rare ones I actually deemed worth watching that had no pointless crotch/boob/panties shots. Interesting premise, reminiscent of '1984' and 'Minority Report' with interesting characters, awesome animation and a very good OST. The ending could've been less predictable and anticlimactic but overall, one of better ones I've seen in a while.xChibiSakura rated 9.50:
One of the best animes I've watched this year (and last). The story is great although a little bit cliché but it makes you want to keep watching. What I liked the most was the antagonist Shogo Makishima, he's not your regular "I want to conquer the world" kind of dumb villain. There's depth to the characters and the development of the story is pretty interesting. The music was also great: EGOIST and Nothing's Carved in Stone. It's not for sure, but the ending suggests that there will be a second season of this anime, so I'm looking forward to it.kuryuki rated 9.00:

A series I was anticipating. The character design and animation are nice. Shinya and Shougo are cool in their respective ways. Akane was very naive for a bit more than the first half of the series. Reality is harsh but that's how some things are and that's a lesson she'll have to learn and it was to see she was starting to wise up during the second half. How it ended I expected I just wish things went different for Shinya. What ended up happening to Masaomi was sad.
