    Brace yourself for a hardboiled, sci-fi thriller from the creator of Madoka Magica and the studio that brought you Ghost in the Shell.

    Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to enough to make you guilty. Bad intentions can no longer be hidden, and the police know exactly which tainted minds are about to cross over to the wrong side of the law. The great equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the risk that a citizen will turn criminal. Cops work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all-powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all. Society is paralyzed by its deepest, darkest desires, and trial by jury has been replaced by the wrath of the Dominator. Welcome to the future. How guilty are you?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing anime series January 30, 2014
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Over shadowed by series like Sword Art Online & Attack on Titan, Psycho-Pass released under the radar to many (myself included), however this series is not one you'll want to miss. Set in a future where law & order is maintained by a surveillance system that monitors everyone's actions and intents, this standout anime is set up rather uniquely and executed near flawlessly. Easily one of, if not my, favorite anime series of the past couple years. To top it off a second season has already been announced in the works.

    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    A futuristic world where people are governed by the fear of keeping stability of their psyche or risk imprisonment at minimum. Rather then take chances with humanities emotional chaos a new system dictates a rigid new order that if broken causes the psyche criminal to be hunted by a special department specially created to handle the situation by using the very people it has deemed incorrigible and criminal by its own standards.

    The series story is nicely done and will cause the viewer to question which way is actually the correct way humanity should go in the future. The series is bloody for half the episodes and can be pretty dark with some hardcore scenes though it barely keeps itself from going to any hentai scenes. Think a mix of Ghost In The Shell with Death Note and you'll get the picture a little.
    The animation is very well done and the soundtrack fits the sci-fi techno beat pretty well. The voice cast for the Japanese cast did a terrific job and for the most part so did the English dub cast though maybe one or two seemed misplaced with their roles.
    So for fans of the darker anime series or sci-fi series or just those looking for a good series a new one has been released for the anime buyers to add to their anime collection.

    Format:Blu-ray
    Pros:
    Definitely adult in the manner of CSI, Blade Runner, Minority Report
    Excellent character design
    Superb animation and backgrounds
    Seamless CG integration, especially the tech (love that Dominator)
    Concise, intelligent, well-paced plot with good turns
    Well rounded characters
    Gory when required
    Unique production style
    Strong music and soundtrack
    Pays homage to prior, classic sci-fi while carving out it's own niche

    Con:
    Only one season
    Episodes seem a tad short as credits sometimes roll while story is still unfolding - watch credits to the end to make sure you don't miss anything in some episodes
    Hard-baked English subs during titles
    Possible hard subs in Japanese track (I watched only English)

    Watch immediately, if you enjoy strong science fiction action with no high school silliness, fanservice or jetting nasal blood geysers. Psycho-Pass is my new favorite police Sci-Fi, depicting a utopian Japan with a deep dark secret at it's core. Suspenseful, gory and incredibly well written, Psycho-pass passes with flying colors! I can't wait for the movie. For English dialog fans, Funimation's ADR is perfect. I highly recommend this anime and hope many more like it come out on blu-ray.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A truly unique take on the concept of morality. March 24, 2014
    By Brandon
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Well I just finished the series and first let me say that this is an anime for adults, meaning that it contains content unsuitable for children (i.e. graphic violence, gore) mainly due to the context of said content. Also, this is what I would call a "deep thinker" which seems to be somewhat difficult to find these days.

    If you want to understand the main premise of this show without me spoiling it for you then just imagine a world where a brain scanning technology of some sort has been perfected to the point where a persons overall moral integrity can be measured and assigned a numerical value in relation to their overall mental stability. Now imagine how difficult it would be to keep something so ideally practical out of our justice system. Its somewhat scary, isnt it? Its definatly a type of surveilance that I never imagined before watching this show.

    At first when i read about it online the plot of the show seemed stupid to me. I thought they just took concepts from Minority Report (which I didnt really care for) and Ghost in the Shell and made them into a confused, tryhard lovechild, but I was wrong. This show is nothing like Ghost in the Shell, and the concept of the justice system (called SIBYL I think) is much more believable than the quantum inference thingy they had going on in Minority Report. The only similarities I see to GITS is the fact that this show is intelligent and the time setting seems to be in the same ballpark, but in that regard I only mean advanced technology and cityscapes of superstructures glowing with lights. The psychological and philisophical aspects of this show remind me more of Batman since alot of the deep stuff comes from the bad guys.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Silly name but serious anime! April 1, 2014
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    It's Minority Report meets Silence of the Lambs by way of The X-Files in this stylish sci-fi crime thriller that, while drawing heavily from many different existing works and genres, still manages to keep you guessing - and wanting more!

    Set in a dystopian near-future where "justice" is dictated by a computer surveillance system (NSA, anyone?) and meted out by government agents and expendable would-be criminals, called "enforcers," with their slick-as-hell handguns of doom, Psycho-Pass tells the story of a new agent straight from the academy who teams up with a motley crew of fellow agents and enforcers at exactly the wrong time. One of the enforcers' past comes back to haunt them as a series of grisly murders rock the city, and shake the new agent's own idealistic worldview to its core.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this series so far, the first half of which builds to a devastating climax in episode 11. The production is outstanding, the visuals are stunning, the sound is fantastic - even the J-pop/rock soundtrack is catchy. But the real kudos here go to the writers and directors who pull off some pretty heavy-duty reflection on a number of serious themes (the relationship of human beings with technology, the nature of human freedom and morality, the relationship of the individual and society, just to name a few) all while entertaining us with intense action and emotional drama. Yes, at times it slows down and gets mired in lengthy dialogue that sounds a bit too much like a freshman philosophy class at your local community college, but that is forgivable, considering the heavy subject matter.

    The premise of this Anime is pretty dope. Think Minority Report with guns that make baddies explode. I've said too much.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Superb show and a must watch for any cyberpunk fans
    I love cyberpunk as a genre, the atmosphere and setting is always top notch, yet it seems to be a tradition the a cyberpunk movie or show will have little to no plot. Read more

    Japanese Track
    Hmmm I am wondering about the same thing too. I checked out Funimation website, the product listing did indicate,
    Language: English,Japanese
    Subtitles: English

    I would suppose it will apply to those sold on Amazon.com?
