About Psycho Pass

The justice and enforcement of it, has changed. In the 22nd century, Japan brings out the sibyl system which purpose is to determinate each citizens threat level by their mental state for signs of criminal intent, which is called Psycho-Pass. The Inspectors which work for the Public Safety Bureau uphold the law by taking care of the criminals with lethal force, harboring the slightest ill-will; alongside them are the Enforcers, Inspectors that have become latent criminals, granted freedom for carrying out the Inspectors’ dirty work.

The main protagonist is Akane Tsunemori, a young woman for her desire to uphold justice being the only being able to be a Inspector from the tests. She thinks if it is the right choice for her to be a Inspector and does she deserve it really. She is working alongside an Enforcer Shinya Kougami, she starts to realise the sibyl system judgment may not be perfect as the other Inspectors assume. With that Akane wrestles with question what the justice truly is, and whether it can be upheld through the system that may be already corrupt.

The Sibyl System revolves around each citizens mental state and their intent. Doing crimes or something illegal will raise the Psycho Pass rate by some amount. When criminal rate is 100 target is seen with non lethal method of taking them out and the possibility of mental care which can fix their Psycho Pass ratings back to normal state. Targets with the 300 Criminal rating are seen as lethal action and latent criminals which have done more serious crimes that sibyl has seen.


Psycho Pass is an interesting anime which is done with a decent plot and makes you want to really watch it. Characters having their own depth and uniques that they have. Akane trying to find the true answer what sibyl is and does it actually tell the truth. The animations and use CGI is something they did well enough.

My own experience what i got from watching Psycho Pass was enjoyable and exciting. I loved the opening and ending how they did that. The anime had its moments of excitement and humour mixed in there being a person who also loves these police or Sci-fi types was a good fit for me

My final rating of this anime is 9 out of 10. The art, CGI and the way they used music fit nicely together while also making a decent plot. The anime making you think about stuff. Seeing how Akane stays strong and seeks for the answer.
