Yay! It finally has its own subforum!

Dengar 2012-11-01 05:53

Ep 4 is out already? Huh?

Kirarakim 2012-11-01 08:33

Ep 4 is out today, they usually put up the episode thread a bit before the episode airs.


On another note thanks for the sub forum.

If anyone is interesting to catch the Simulcast from Funi starts at 12:45 Eastern Time and 9:45 Pacific Time.

Kanon 2012-11-01 09:48

The preview was posted in the general thread.



Halloween episode with another 1984 cameo. Looks interesting.

About an hour ago, Funi tweeted that the simulcast will be delayed due a delay in the Japanese broadcast. Funi plans to stream the episode at 1:15 pm CT today. [Source]

Delayed by half hour... not too bad. People with torrent can watch the episode now. ;)

Delayed by a half-hour? More like 90 minutes. I think you have your time zones mixed. :)
original time: 11:45 CT = 12:45 ET
new time: 1:15 CT = 2:15 ET

Oh dear... You're right of course! LKK-sensei, it's your magnanimous presence that makes me err. :) Oh looky.. I'm finished getting episode 4. :D

edit: Saw episode 4. It gets pretty graphic. Episode ended in a cliffhanger. The story will continue in episode 5.

Kanon 2012-11-01 11:30

This episode was a bit different from the previous three. The Sibyl system isn't being questioned in this one, and the case is a lot more complicated. I was surprised the man battling Kogami in the prologue appeared already, I thought we'd have a lot more stand alone stories before diving into the main plot.

Anyway, this was definitely interesting. We don't know much about the criminals' motivations yet, but I'm getting the impression they're trying to overthrow the system (or is that just because I saw that guy reading a copy of 1984?). Spookie Boogie (aka Kirino) was a known anarchist and while it's not clear where Talisman stands, he seems to have a lot of influence on the interwebs and can therefore be used for their purpose, whatever it really is. To be continued in the next episode.

On to the main cast. Akane was trying to understand Kogami better in order to get along with him, but Masuoka warned her that if she ever does, then her psycho-pass will be as high as his. Forshadowing much? I still stand by my theory Akane will become an enforcer at the end of the show.

PS: Akane's avatar was really cute. Can they make any more moe than she already is?

Spoiler for Episode 4:

ookamigirl 2012-11-01 13:02

Akane has developed a fascination with Kogami.
That guy is pretty observant and really good at his job.
It's no wonder she interested.
The Hayama case was ok, but their first and second case were better.
I like hands on approach better.
This online community-boards-avatars thing was so-so.

miroku2192 2012-11-01 13:05

Poor Spooky Boogie :\,

I'm surprised the detectives didn't offer her "real-life" protection when she agreed to help them out. That's typically the normal thing you'd do in case anything goes wrong imo.

Jarmel 2012-11-01 15:14

It was an alright episode. I suppose this is discussing anonymity and how there really aren't IRL consequences for things that happen on the internet. Having someone act as some sort of policing squad is fairly interesting.

I guess the issue I'm having with the show is that it has been fairly low key so far and nothing has really kicked off or gone into high gear.

thundrakkon 2012-11-01 15:27

Wow, so the plot has thicken. They are finally dwelving into a major storyline, and the new antagonists seem to be quite the masterminds. This seems like it will be quite a challenge for our protagonists.

I've been wondering. Why don't they have Psycho-pass detectors everywhere in the city? If they are already playing Big Brother, might as well go all the way.

Dengar 2012-11-01 15:50

Maybe because it makes people nervous?

Rayneing 2012-11-01 15:51

Fantastic episode, even if it was weird to see half of it take place in that virtual reality network. The look and feel of that world felt so at odds with what we've seen of the real world so far. Interesting that for some reason, the net still seems to be mostly unfiltered and unrestrained, despite the surveillance that has come to dominate the rest of society in this setting.

Dengar 2012-11-01 15:54

Freedom of speech is important. Even moreso on the internet.

Akane fked up :D

I don't think the other knew about the cooperation from SB, they might've thought Akane managed to grab the intel elsewhere instead of actually discussion with SB.
