In the fucking first episode the MC walked in on them. Black hair was leaving and blondie was pulling up her stockings or some shit.

You're a retard.

I still can't figure out after the entire show if he was suppose to be the good guy or the bad guy in the end?

It just seems like the show was leaning towards more of the Sybil side since Sybil is still around in the end and running like the Jews they are.
>>
>>102058559
I think he meant that it didn't go anywhere beyond them being lesbos. It didn't serve a fucking purpose at all in the show. I mean, I could understand if there was some homo/lesbo case then maybe it would have made sense but it didn't. Nothing of her and Yayoi made fucking sense even her one retarded flashback episode served no meaning.
>>
>>102058639
Bad guy with sort of good intentions. He wanted to point out the flaws in the society but was still pretty nuts and did so by committing murder and trying to fuck over everyone's hyper oatz.
>>
>>102058689
Well it wasn't supposed to be a plot point. They were just two characters that happened to scissor each other and it remained subtle. You don't need to be beat over the head with it just because it's there.

Sure if it's obvious that they're lesbo but this subtle defeats the purpose. If it for fan service then it failed at it, and if it was for laughs it wasn't funny because it wasn't over the top. So there was no point to them being lesbians and just wasted a couple of minutes of useless scenes.
>>
>>102059080
Why does there need to be a point to it? They're just lesbians. That's it. You don't need to over-think it.

I want to know how this and the phone-toss happened. The animation was great throughout the majority of the series.

So basically they were pointless and the only defining trait about them is that they were lesbians. What great writing.
>>
>>102059429
No, actually you're an absolute retard and have it completely backwards. The fact that they are lesbians is just an underlying trait and doesn't impact who they are in the show. Your stance has taken a complete 180, since you were saying before that it was not obvious that they're lesbians.
>>
>>102059429
Shion at least got to be their computer ace. Yayoi was pretty pointless.
>>
>>102059287
If it serves a purpose. Being a lesbo for the point of being a lesbo serves no purpose of the show or character when it doesn't bring any insight.

Take for example the Major from GiTS(If you don't know the show it's Ghost in the Shell it's like a better version of Psycho Pass, but with actual substance) She's a lesbian but it actually serves as part of the plot and character.

If "like a better version" you mean very different but with a sort of similar visual aesthetic, then yeah.

So Akane is like Shogo was and Sibyl can't read her right?

>>102060135
No, she's just perfectly fine going along with society as it is. Her crime coefficient does increase at times before going back down.

I can't quite remember, though probably considering her psycho pass stays POWDAH BRUE during the whole series, even after all the horrible things she sees.

Or maybe she's just one chill nigga.

Sibyl is the law and Akane embodies justice

So 2 people can't be gay for the sake of being gay? Just because a character is gay doesn't mean their homosexuality and relationships have to be explored or expanded upon. Personally I do wish they had explored that relationship some more but it's not like they were obligated. Maybe the girls are just fuckbuddies, both have high stress jobs, both are confined to one building and have very limited freedom. I bet they rough animal sex to get out their frustration.

Pretty sure she's just like Shogo but remains obedient in the end. That's what the Sybil wants in the end the populace to be like Akane in which they're aware of the system and who runs but just don't give a damn.

And rightfully so. Sybil for the most part aren't actually evil even if the people running it is questionable and it's still better than any other system that humans had before.

>>102060300
>So 2 people can't be gay for the sake of being gay?

Yes, because for a show that explores the psyh and behavior of humans the show didn't explore this part at all.

I mean, for god sake SSY did a better job of exploring the entire homo/lesbo and that serve a fucking purpose for the show instead of going whoa look at us we're gay for the sake of being gay for no reason.
>>
>>102060135

She knows Sybil is a necessary evil. She was shown the brain room because Sybil knew Akane wouldn't tell anyone, if the public knew what Sybil really was society would essentially collapse. So Akane is stuck with a bunch of psychopaths running the world because the alternative is much worse.

>>102060541
You mean a bunch of psychopaths running Japan.

>people need a reason to be gay
Christ, they were essentially fanservice shots used as scene transitions. It didn't require explanation.
>>
>>102060488
I'm pretty sure Yayoi's ex-girlfriend Rina is going to be the Shogo for season 2. At least I hope so.
>>
>>102060653
If that's the case it failed because it didn't make go to start masturbate over it, and it wasn't even good fanservice. It was just Yayoi buttoning up her shirt.

Whoa that sure was awesome fan service.

I don't really see a problem with the homosexual aspect of it, I just wonder why that was the one time they ever showed a "romantic" relationship and yet they never followed up on why those two were having sex in her office/lab. I was more interested in the relationship rather than the sexual orientation.
>>
This is pretty unrelated, but this is the only Psycho-Pass thread.

Does anyone know why it seems like everybody translated the condition Makishima had as being criminally asymptotic?

It fits the math terms, but the actual term used is menzai taishitzu no mono, meaning a person genetically inclined towards being pardoned or having Catholic indulgences.
>>
>>102060934
You misread it. It's "asymptomatic" as in not showing symptoms.
>>
>>102060934
*taishitsu
>>
>>102060858
Well yea that was what I was hoping. That it would actually lead to anywhere. I mean, just ANYWHERE but it didn't lead to anything at all. It was just they're gay for like no fucking reason.

>>102060541
But Akane still hates the system. Does Akane not read up on human history or something? The Sybil system is a god sent compared to all the other systems in human history, because let's face humans are pieces of shit no matter how advance humanity becomes because they're still animals in the end and as such are still controlled by the cancerous thing of emotion and human nature.
>>
>>102060989
That's still totally different than the Japanese word. Being pardoned or engaging in a Papal indulgence is totally different from not showing symptoms, and it doesn't mention criminal at all. Not to mention not reflecting the tendency or genetic constitution aspect at all.
>>
>>102061131
They don't need a reason to be gay.
>>
>>102061131
sibyl system pls go
>>
>>102061153
Criminally asymptomatic, as in you don't show sins.

As in you're genetically inclined towards being pardoned or having Catholic indulgences.

But just because you're pardoned or have Catholic tendencies doesn't mean you're sinless; church can be wrong in labeling people as fit for heaven or sinful as seen in history.
So you seem to not show any sin, but you may actually have sinned.
>>
>>102061131
>let's face humans are pieces of shit
So giving the shittiest humans you can find near omniscience and putting them in charge is somehow a good idea?
>>
>>102061345
No, the subtext of being forgiven adds a completely different dimension that could easily be seen as a reference to Crime and Punishment especially when combined with when Makishima says the Sibyl system doesn't consider people's will when making an assessment. It's not that he does not show criminal symptoms, its that he's forgiven for them, especially when they want him to join the system.
>>
>>102061131
Murder, slavery, war, and the like are all an acceptable price to pay if it means the survival of human will.
>>102061486
The idea is that you catch a criminal by understanding them.
>>
>>102061131
I don't know, living in a country with an okay government and okay police seems to be fine for me. The Sybil system is rather unnecessary because its implementation means more and more people will be ignorant to what crime is and will have to rely on the system to tell them what it is.

I don't see what the Sybil system offers that is ideal, it's not really that effective at controlling crime and seems to perhaps instigate a general pattern of increasing crime through its oppression on society.
>>
>>102061632
But the brains are in charge of everything, not just the criminal investigation division.
>>
>>102061731
The true point of the system was so that they could keep filthy Koreans like Choe out of glorious Nihon.
>>
>>102061735
The system is designed around subjugating criminals, it puts people where stress is least likely to build up for them. With the exception of a few people it needs to fuck over to keep others' stress levels low. Which in turn need to keep their stress levels low by comitting crimes.

It was supposed to be a flawed but practical system.
