    Psycho Pass is awesome!

    I think it's "Ma-gee" rather than "Ma-geye" but you should totally watch some more of that Tom, I know a good handful of users here are watching it. And to answer Matt's question regarding target audience, the show is definitely not for kids. It gets surprisingly violent (and political) even by the second episode. Oh, and yeah, Sinbad is in it.

    @Daniel_Newton: Yeah, I'm with you on that. I hope Tom checks out more episodes, because there is basically no chibi after episode 1. In fact, not really any focus on sex humor or any fan service. A really action-focused show.

    Sinbad is GREAT!

    @YotaruVegeta:

    There are still some chibi and fan service left in the series. Oh, Tom did a Watch and Learn on Ep. 2. If you're looking for discussion, hang out with my teammates in the Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic Discussion.
