Here's my theory of what's going on in this world...

All this emphasis on keeping one's sanity and stress level down (to the point of overmedication) actually bumps up people's Criminal Coefficients. It's like bolting down a steam valve instead of venting excess steam...and things are going to blow up big-time sooner or later.

The big question with this series, of course, is how did this system all come about? I don't doubt that will be the main point of the last few episodes.

Some of you may think this entry should go under the Sybil System morality discussion. But I'm just trying to ask "how" in this case, not "why".

With this in mind, I think that one of the themes of Psyco-Pass might be one that's supportive of the Jungian concept of Shadow.

To simplify it greatly, everybody has a "darker side" with emotions and impulses that are generally thought of as "negative". These emotions and impulses need some sort of outlet; they can't be forever denied and ignored as though they don't exist at all. If they are forever denied, you can get a Dr. Jekyll/Mr.Hyde style of breakdown, where constantly maintaining a perfect conception of self eventually overwhelms an individual and they endure something of an emotional breakdown.

Now, the question comes, what acceptable outlets does the Psycho-Pass world offer for the Jungian Shadow?

Well, there's this VR world that we saw in the Spooky Boogie arc. But aside from that, there appears to be little escape from a heavily conformist culture and society that desires constant psychological beauty.


So yeah, andyjay, I think you may very well be right in your speculations.

sex is a great "anti-stress"? I think so and know that Shion and Yayoi should not be stressed together, do not you think?

There seems to be a large elephant in the room regarding the Sibyl system and its judgments. I understand the characters grew up and lived through this system all their lives and have no gumption to start actively criticizing it, but hopefully by the end of the series, a grey area will shown. Heroic sacrifices from our team will most likely open up Sybil for a brighter, freer future for latent criminals.

I do not want that one character dies during and at the end of the anime, but it is something that should not be expected too familiar atmosphere of the anime ... and made ​​as executor dies it is also possible I think the example of Sasayama.....but ... and choose Yayoi the only one I would not want to see die!!

I didn't read the entire thread, so if this has been said then I apologize:

Anyone else seeing a "history repeats itself" sort of thing with Kagami and Tsunemori. Kagami was just like Tsunemori until the Enforcer under him died and he was driven to catch his killer. If Kagami dies, will Tsunemori react the same way and become an Enforcer?

Yes it is possible if Akane saw Kogami but apart Kogami die if she saw one of those die his friend would return the same there would also likely be

Well, that is urobucher's typical style so it's not surprising he made those theories.

I saw someone posting on twitter that it wasn't going to be airing in Japan for two weeks (along with Robotics;Notes and I think Tempest is taking a week break as well), it would be weird for the simulcasts to take a break when the show is still on-going in any case.

Based on what I read the news about the episode 1-11 marathon of P-P on NicoNico today, I heard they gonna stream the new trailer as well the sample of the new ending theme by EGOIST entitled "All Alone with You".

All the talk about overreliance on technology makes me think of the song "In the Year 2525". Do you think it might make a good Psycho-Pass AMV?
