Thanks for the plausible answers to my questions, Casshern and others.

For some reason, I never even thought about the possibility of being criminally asymptomatic as something that wasn't permanent (even though it was right before my eyes as Tougane).
I think I just thought Tougane was different because he was intentionally made as a criminally asymptomatic child.

I think Yayoi has some kind of motherly feelings toward Mika especially considering the way and the circumstances in which they met. To put it simply she cares about her.

On the other side Mika's feelings for Yayoi seem to be somewhat stronger. She clearly looks up to her even though she normally distrusts every other enforcer.

This could be simply admiration for a role model rather than a crush though.

There hasn't really been more than that, unless I missed something.

I thought that scene was implying that Mika was somehow involved in Mama Akane's death and that she would never forgive herself for it.

I think it's pretty clear she's involved. That scene wasn't the first such clue.

As for never forgiving herself... I think maybe the desire to not be caught is predominant.

But what I wonder is - does Yayoi suspect?

Hmm… hard to say how I feel about this season…

Story
Spoiler for Story:


Characters
Spoiler for Characters:


Ok, I know that the series got novels to back it up. However, if it’s an anime series, then I feel like every single important detail should be explained in it, not in novels. Why? Because the canon elements might be questioned, not to mention that the novels might not interest everyone who followed the series.

I actually liked this Season, but it felt too short and again… some characters didn’t get the backstory they deserved.

I think that Yayoi does suspect something but can't prove it. Her eyes narrowed at the end of her sentence. You don't want your backup not forgiving you. You could wind up dead secondary to a slower reaction time than normal.

Mika: Yayoi, I need back up.
Yayoi: I coming!
Perp: Hahaha! I will cut your throat!
Mika: Nooooooo! Yayoi, please hurry!
Yayoi: *walking slowly* I'm running as fast as I can!
Perp: *slash*
Mika: *dead*
Yayoi to Akane: I just couldn't make it in time. I'm sorry.

Wasn't quite the elegant closure I was hoping for.

I wanted people, not Sibyl to be the ones to kill Misako Togane. It was kinda sloppy that the system suddenly decided to go against Misako, after letting her go crazy and not giving a shit for so long. Would've made better sense if the system changed its mind after Misako died. Also would've liked a better explanation of what they mean by assessing people as groups instead of individuals, but I think we might get that in the movie.

Ubukata's Psycho-Pass is a solipsist’s oneiric cosmogony founded upon sempiternal dissolution of its noumenal paradigm, the ultimate sublation within Swedenborgian dereification. He consummates his diegetic mimesis: executing an epicene and orgiastic ricorso of Nietzchean epigonic apotheosis.

I agree with you. I was disappointed that it ended that way.

How long did it take you to think of that one? XP

If anything good can come from the finale is I hope to god Yayoi suspects Mika. Her eyes did narrow.

Wow these poll results aren't promising. Unfortunately, I'm a completionist. I have faith in Urobuchi for the film, but considering I'll eventually have to go through what's apparently such a disappointment, it's just...why?

Season 1 was structured, well-paced, with an incredibly well presented cast of characters who are just as interesting. This is a story about the cast raising the protagonist (Akane) up to be a strong and independent person, as well as reaffirming her beliefs. Here, the world was supporting her.

Season 2 is a story that focuses around Akane herself. The world is dull, most of the original cast are either dead or missing, and in turn they are replaced with many new faces Akane can't seem to put her heart in, no matter how kind and patient she is. Perhaps the lack of character exposition was even intentional, and the whirlpool they're in this time was pretty frantic. But despite having the world being pit against her now, Akane manages to stay firm with good memories of the past.

All in all, it's not exactly a bad Season to be honest. It was above average. Season 1 just set an incredibly high bar few animes had ever reached, that's all.

Surprisingly, the most striking plot hole (to me) is the address of Akane's grandma. So an omnipotent system cannot find grandma's location BUT SOMEHOW Mika knows it even though she's not on friendly terms with Akane to put it mildly?

Pretty sure it was just Tougane who wanted to get his hands on her grandmother, not Sibyl. He wouldn't make his mommy proud if he had to ask her to help him paint Akane black now, would he?

It might be, however, the whole scenario still doesn't make sense. If Mika could find grandma's location why couldn't Tougane? Tougane was much closer to Akane than Mika could ever hope to be.

^Lol no kidding.

And then to comfort the grieving Akane, Yayoi invites her back to her place - where Shion is waiting for both of them.

I'm sorry for the above crack idea. I blame my grievances with Cross Ange which I'm about to watch.

But on the way, Yayoi was intercepted by Gino who had first dibs on Akane.

I can only imagine. Probably as long as it took the studio to make the entire psycho pass franchise.
