Aside from airing in the same seasons and ending a day apart, Shin Sekai Yori and Psycho-Pass were remarkably similar in their presentations of dystopias founded on the fear of the human subconscious.
Both shows usually make for good discussion around here, so a comparison of the two seemed like it'd be interesting to try. I may as well start off with some open-ended questions due next Tuesday at the start of class, but go ahead and post anything relevant.
Akane winds up as the chief pawn of the Sybil system, while Saki is implied to eventually head the Ethics Committee, both of them hoping (perhaps in vain) for reform from within. Is there a difference in their forms of complicity?
SSY lets the audience answer the question of whether Squealer did anything wrong, while PP weights the scales heavily against Makishima. Would the writers have made the same judgments about each other’s character?
