Psycho-Pass is a cyberpunk series where omnipresent public sensors scan the mental state of every citizen and assign a crime coefficient to them. Excess ratings can lead to detainment or death at the hand of authorities. Inspector Akane Tsunemori is new to the job and is assigned to work with Enforcer Shinya Kogami, who is a former inspector. However, Tsunemori’s trust in the Sybil System wavers after crimes committed by Shoujo Makishima.
Psycho-Pass has grown into one of Japan’s more popular modern franchises. Season 1, which was written by Gen Urobuchi, ran for 22 episodes in 2012. Season 2, which had a different writing team, ran for 11 episodes in 2014. Urobuchi would return to write Psycho-Pass the Movie, which debuted in 2015.
