Now there's a question I'm not sure about. Were they truly empowered so that they could do as they pleased, such as indulge in the perversions they had when they were still human? Or were they wired...

That's a good point. Let me just play devil's advocate for a bit.

First, I'm not sure Sybil ever fessed up to Akane about offing Kagari. But if that happened, then I would concede that's a major...

Was that really what the show was about? I'm not saying the system didn't do any of those things, because it did. But was that the central conflict of the story? Or was it rather just part of the...

If I understood the ending correctly, Akane’ beef wasn’t with the way her society is currently organized, but rather with who, or more appropriately, what is currently calling the shots. In other...

Notwithstanding few minor nits to pick, I thoroughly enjoyed this show. I think the show succeeded with me because I was not looking for any kind of object lesson on good governance and justice. I...

I held back on commenting for as long as I could because this episode was designed to, and did in fact elicit highly emotional reactions. This makes for great television, but doesn’t do as well for a...

Ah, finally thank heavens, a kindred soul. And you too Thereminvox. I'm happy to see that others appreciate that the issues raised by Sybil are not as cut-and-dried and simple-minded as some would...

[QUOTE=Cosmic Eagle;4518377]It is simply that Sybil has conditioned society to the point they would literally lay down and die if it were the easiest for them. (See Rikako's father and the stuff in...

That is brilliant. I wish I'd thought of it that way. After somebody walks up to them and says "hey people, Sybil is BAAAD!" what happens next?

Do they all respond with "Egad! you are correct...

Oh I agree with you 100%. I don't think Urobuchi is making any kind of allegory here. My own take at this point is that he's just having fun with some very black humor. Perhaps toward the end of the...

Obviously not. But let me turn it around and ask an equally obvious question: don't you think an artist like Urobuchi would relish the creative challenge of making an audience root for a system that...

Absolutely. Sybil's benefits come at a price that many of us who cherish individual freedoms and subscribe to the concept of limited government would find exorbitant. It is tyranny. Just don't forget...

Just a point of clarification. I understood that Sybil "approves" artists, but it does not ban or approve any kind of music. Is this correct?

I thought Yayoi was an approved artist because Sybil...

Yes, is it worth the sacrifice of the very few for the greater good? That's one of the tough questions Urobochi wants us to think about, and I don't pretend to have an answer. But what I want to...

I don't see any evidence that the monitoring causes people to commit crime. I may change my mind if you point to a specific incident where the monitoring, in and of itself, pushed an otherwise law...

I don't usually do internet discussions, but this show has been so good that I am finally compelled to nerd up and say something.
