Amazing anime series,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Psycho-Pass: Part One (Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray)
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.

Psycho-Pass was literally released right in-between the two (SAO ended in Dec '12, Pass aired Oct '12-Mar '13 and then Attack started in April '13). I'm aware that none of them premiered during the same season; my point was that Pass was overshadowed in general (as in it wasn't referred to/recognized as being a standout anime for that year as opposed to the other two).

Naruto is mediocre at best and look at how popular it is. SAO is crap aswell and look at how popular it is. Justin bieber is a douche and look at how popular it is. This show was definitively unappreciated.

I definitely agree that it was overshadowed by Sword Art Online and Attack on Titan. And it is nice that we had a hardcore science fiction show come out in the cyberpunk genre again that questions a different aspect of a possible future like what Ghost in the Shell does. However, I felt the development of the main character near the end went a little too fast and thought they could have stretched it out by at least 1 more episode. Oh well, we still got an awesome show out of it.
Oh! and one critique about your review. The show solely talks about Japan and how it has isolated itself from the rest of the world by achieving complete self-sufficiency. It doesn't even communicate with the outside world. That was the whole point about the final act of the "villain" in the show. Which was to kill that main source of self-sufficiency and force Japan to open itself back up to the world and have immigrants and refugees (hint at some kind of war or plague striking the rest of the world) flooding in and overloading Sibyl while also injecting new ways of thought into the stagnated society.
