PSYCHO-PASS 2 #8 -- Watch & Learn

What if they actually did come for your violent video games?!?!

Gamers getting arrested right at in their living rooms for playing violent video games? That’s some awesomely JUDGE DREDD satire there. The show has such a dry and deadpan sense of humor, you can’t always be sure when it’s joking, but damn… was that scene a stitch. The ESRB’s coming to get you!

Akane’s closing in on this Kamui mystery, and it’s been really riveting watching her try to keep composure when this memory of Kogami is gnawing at the back of her mind so insistently. The visit to her grandma puts a more explicit point on how she's been putting the concerns of her personal beneath… basically everything else around her. She’s advanced her career, she takes care of others, etc. What keeps it from becoming the romcom cliché is that show’s focusing on its less-cute aspects.She didn’t have a relationship with Kogami but, as the premise continually harps on, their mere interaction has affected her by degrees - - ‘infecting’ her in the way that emotions do.

She’s probably never had a boyfriend, so she’ll fixate on the one guy who got close, and almost set her off this straight-arrow path. Is that healthy? Maybe not. It's not as unhealthy as other obsessions, though. And that's the point -- this is all by degrees. The Crime Coefficient is proving to be sci-fi metaphor with a whole host of applications.

The scene with Akane and her boss was great, too. They'll never admit that Sybill's broken, so they'll use the most distancing, bureaucratic doublespeak to avoid acknowledging Kamui. Neither confirming nor denying his existence, as if he were the criminal equivalent of Schrodinger's Cat. It's a nice echo of MINORITY REPORT -- the seers are never wrong, but they don't always agree.

It's tough to say if this, PARASYTE or BAHAMUT is the best show of the season -- but this is definitely the most thought-provoking.

Watch "Untraceable Children" and decide for yourself, then read my thoughts on the last episode.

Sorry but I couldn't help laughing my but off when They introduced "grandma Akane" wrinkles and all, Seemingly out of nowhere, it just..... Caught me off guard, the scene was so brief, and the show never stopped to introduce any of her kin before, of course I was far more interested in that creepy guy Who still has some kind of obsession with Akane and Um... "painting her black" seriously creepy...., I'm curious just what it is he plans on doing To bring her down, I mean what would it take to cloud Her hue?, perhaps if something were to befall Grandma?.... hmm.....

The scene with her boss was more than just that. The Sybil system knows hes out to kill them not just change society. Thats why they want him dead. Because they are afraid.

Akane got a real stalker on her. Was he circling her moth on those photos? I don't think killing her kin can bring Akane down. Akane lost her best friend in the last season but manage to keep her hue from falling.

This episode was great.

I don't know how pills taste when you're eating them as seasoning in your food, though. Unhealthy!
