The final of its first season was lame.
I hope they undo that stupid roles switch.

I'm sure that the fugitive Kogami will play a role in this new season.

I'm not that surprised. If they left the ending like that it really would have been disappointing as a whole.

What was wrong with that? I like the whole generational baton pass. Reminds me of Naruto.

Odds are, the antagonist will be either:

1) Someone similar to Makishima, with the added flavor of watching Akane struggle knowing what will happen if she brings them in
2) A foreign invasion (not an army, mind you, but perhaps something along the lines of a NY Gang, the Mafia, etc)
3) Sybil System itself
4) And least likely as a primary antagonist: Kougami

Well I just finished the first season last night so this is quite the pleasant surprise.

Given the premise of a sequel, there's going to be quite some wriggle room to work with. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a lengthy time-skip when it rolls around and/or Akane ends up being an antagonist herself.

I'm sort of ambivalent about this, but I do hope it doesn't take up a NoitaminA slot.

Yes. That way it can get a decent episode count.

I'd actually argue that Kogami is a pretty likely antagonist or at least an anti-hero (although you're right, most likely not the primary one) whose ideas clash with the police's on a regular basis. Part of Makishima's whole fascination with him was how he saw Ko and himself as being very similar and, while they were more dissimilar than Makishima originally thought, in some ways he wasn't far off. Ko is someone whose seen the system from the inside, seen it fail him, and yet doesn't know how to fix it, which the last few episodes presented as a contrast to Akane who was also starting to see the flaws in the system (and ultimately saw more than Kogami) yet took a different approach to dealing with it. I see a lot of potential for conflict between the two of them and would be really surprised if he didn't at least play a big role at some point in the series as an antagonist.

Oh yea I really want to see where they take this now. Obviously the girl at the end of season 1 will be the new main focus and hopefully she'll be the one to break the system.

Looks like there will be an official announcement in September, then we will have full confirmation

I wonder what will the second season's direction be

- A continuance of Akane's story as her struggle with criminal cases and the Sybil System continue (most likely)

- Follow Kogami's adventure to see the outside war and maybe his effort to expose Sybil System. (maybe this will be a subplot to Akane's main plot)

- A whole new set of character (unlikely)

I personally don't like role switches because I typically find them to be too clichéd. I was hoping that a more interesting spin would've at least been put on it, but I didn't see that in PP's ending. At least, it didn't seem that way. Perhaps we'll see differently in this second season.

I would love a villainous mastermind that’s already developed in the first season, not some characters pulled out of nowhere (unless there’s a considerable time-skip). My preference for the main “villain” this time would be the Sybil System and, to some extent, Kogami. Maybe we’ll see some rebellion done by some of the Enforcers who sympathize with Kogami at some point.

I'm thinking along the same lines. Akane will take on Kougami and Sybil, following standard procedures and laws. I wonder if the intent is to break her character. That would be such a pity though.

I could see Kougami being an antagonist, but I would like to see him working with Akane & Co later on, possibly to topple Sibyl or something along the lines...

I surprisingly find myself ambivalent about this.

While I did have issues with how Psycho-Pass ended, I find that the show has aged well with me, and I had more or less come to terms with its ending.

Also, most of the elements that made Psycho-Pass' first season largely entertaining and very engaging are now gone.

Makishima, Tomomi, and Kagari are all dead. Shinya is no longer on the force.

Makishima will be hard to replace. The Shinya/Makishima rivalry was often fun and exciting in and of itself. A new Makishima will likely lack an equally good rivalry, as Shinya's personal backstory played a big role in how great the Shinya/Makishima rivalry was.

Shinya, Tomomi, and Kagari were the characters that gave the protagonists a real colorful edge in Season 1. Their roles in the protagonist cast will be very difficult, if not impossible, to replace. This is most obvious with old vet Tomomi, as there's nobody left on the protagonist cast quite like him. Yes, his son is still there, but his son was never a Detective/Cop in pre-Sybil era, and that's a pretty big difference between father and son there.


For Season 2 to be a success, it's going to need to create some very good new characters and slot them into compelling roles. It can be done, but it also remains to be seen.
