Lethal Eliminator Edition
It's going to be a while dear. Go read a book mkay? Phillip always appreciated a fan.
>crime and punishment anime style
>notice it in the filename
I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law…We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, a secretion of sensory, experience, and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. Maybe the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
Sybil was right.
Shougo was wrong.
>2 pages of free manga
Why are there people who actually liked the Sybil system?
Sybil genocide every day of my life
Well if you compare it to every other form of system it's pretty damn good. That's why you never seen any negative comments on "distopia" such as Brave New World, but humans completely shit on 1984.
That is way too long.
I'll have responsibilities by then.
The problem with Sybil, other than the brains, but in its principle is that it essentially creates a kind of caste system. People who have never done anything but who just don't have the "right attitude/outlook," are ostracized.
For example, the guy in the third episode, if you read the novel, was stalking that one girl because she rejected him on account of his Psycho Pass. Even though he was technically in the clear by Sybil's standards, the girl hooked up with a lower crime coefficient.
What this also does is make humans very sheltered and repressed. Notice that the humans with particularly low coefficients tend to be completely ignorant of how even to defend themselves when they're finally attacked or don't even understand what's going on when someone starts beating the shit out of someone else in public because they were never exposed to any of that. Not to mention those who become literal vegetables. Makashima may have been an edgy faggot who went about things the wrong way, but he had a point about Sybil turning humans into brain-dead retards with nothing that amounts to a soul.
The principle behind Sybil might not be so bad if people didn't use it as a substitute for their reason or if those living within it weren't so obsessed with a notion of "purity" that is imposed on them more than it is decided by them. Few of them even question whatever research was put into Sybil's database to determine who is or isn't more likely to commit a crime. Seems like someone just defined what criminal activity was for them or they only thought of "crime" in terms of violent acts, without thinking of the finer points and implications of the proposition, before settling on the matter for good.
This show taught me that if I don't read bad things will happen to me
And.. that isn't happening with other systems? Sure love those oldfags and neets and "disabled" being sheltered and repressed too.
Least with Sybil you know the ones in control are actually intelligent and run on logic for the most part. Do you want another George W. Bush and Obongo to run things? Or the Jews to take control while stealing the resources from other nations? The idiots and morons to keep electing said George W. Bush and Obongo into power again and again, and these same idiots and morons that can't name their state represents but can name contestants from American Idol to be entitled to power?
does anyone have the screencap where akane talks to her gun?
>And.. that isn't happening with other systems?
It is by looking at other systems that we see implementing something like Sybil would be retarded.
>Least with Sybil you know the ones in control are actually intelligent and run on logic for the most part.
it's run by the brains of psychopaths
Sybil is able to filter out and help society. Look at our current system. Society always talks about rehabilitation and help out the lost souls of society but what does society do? They throw them in prisons and just let them rot while making criminals worse and subjected to an environment that in no way helps them rehabilitate. The Sybil system from what we saw those criminals actually got rehabilitated and the help they need to become productive members of society again.
Psychopathy for the most part are pretty intelligent and think logically because they're not easily indoctrinated and brain washed. They also don't appeal to emotion which is a big plus and emotion is always a big cancer to every society. It prevents logically thinking and instead makes humans revert back to their animal ways.
Anyone got the cell phone toss gif?
Why is Akane such a cutie?
I hope she has long hair next season
>taking away her best feature
>The Sybil system from what we saw those criminals actually got rehabilitated and the help they need to become productive members of society again.
You're missing the point that the vast majority of those people were criminals to begin with and in fact the people in charge of the society admit there's no guarantee they'll ever even commit a crime, even if they have a particularly dark hue. If you're a criminal in Sybil society, that is someone who has actually committed a crime, chances are you're either splattered or imprisoned for life.
>He hasn't seen Akane's mullet
True, short hair is maximum cute.
Episode 19 will air in 6 hours
Are you ready for Takiko VS Natsume and more Kyouko?
I'm really liking the current plot threads and even with its breakneck pacing, it's starting to get really interesting recently especially with some insightful details that we, animefags interacting about that with others.
Might include some good fanarts if we need it.
>it essentially creates a kind of caste system
It is for the greater good of the society, not the individual person who needs the society more than the society needs her/him.
You only say that cause you assume you wouldn't be at the bottom. And again, we're not talking about a society in which people are organized on the basis of their evident moral character or what crimes they have actually committed, but on the basis of the probability of their doing something bad according to a system designed and run by flawed humans. The system itself mostly works because people believe it works, not because it actually does, and this is practically admitted by the brains.
You're also forgetting crime went way down. Hell, that lady who ran things even said people like Shougo are rare. So obvious the system is working.
2015 can't come soon enough.
What is the bottom in Sybel's system?
The system works because people operate under the presumption that Sybil can accurately predict all of their behavior and therefore they can entrust it with all the responsibility of preserving the peace and order of society. Expose one flaw within it and all that peace and order falls apart in the absolute worst way. This is also why the brains are constantly trying to update and reach a perfection that is really impossible. It may be practical to keep Sybil in place, but it certainly isn't desirable.
Stuck in a detention center for the rest of your life, turned into goo, or stuck in a ghetto because you can never leave otherwise you'll be dragged to the detention center or killed.
how bout' sum o dat spookie boogie
sound BUUGI, you say?
>Stuck in a detention center for the rest of your life
Does not sound too bad.
>turned into goo
I am not violent/chaotic enough to be killed.
Fuck, not only did you beat me to posting the gif but I accidentally set it as my desktop background because it's right next to the preview button.
>I am not violent/chaotic enough to be killed.
That's the thing, with Sybil, you don't have to be.
Good. Keep it that way.
Why hasn't there been any new on the movie or s2?
I get the impression they let the announcement slip out a little bit earlier than they had planned. They're probably not ready to show anything yet.
I do hope that they will show us something in the first half of 2014.
>trailer for movie
>end of movie after credits
>SEASON 2 2017
>I get the impression they let the announcement slip out a little bit earlier than they had planned.
Akane reminds me of a little cute dog who's head I want to pat. Anyone else?
Not sure why I expected any better from Psycho Pass fans.
What's wrong about Psycho-Pass or it's fans?
Exceptions are very rare.
What am I even reading
Besides making generals?
Psycho Pass OC is pretty tumblr esque.
Half of them can't even spell Sibyl right.
The QUALITY, for one. And
>people still cannot fucking into it's and its
Rust pls go home you've had too much coke
>posting anything but HYPER OATS first
Man this show was incredibly fun, even/especially when it tried to science.
What's wrong with trolling Sybil?
Best Hanazawa role
There's no moe in Psycho Pass.
Its one of great human ironies. How could you not like it?
we Detective Naoto now
Keep in mind, the McDonalds one came first.
I'm so happy I actually contributed to something for psycho-pass.
It's already been announced, friend.
I'm looking forward to the future threads. I missed the speculah and debates. Hopefully we won't get as much QUALITY this season.
Gino is going to die next season, trust me my dad works as at Urobuchi.
See, that proves Sybil is the right thing, because it actually is trying to learn and grow. Our system there isn't any growth, nothing new to gain. Just a system based on moralfaggotry and appealing to emotion.
Sybil is nothing but the collection of brains of low-life faggots who want to fuck with people. Sybil a shit.
The focus of the story is mainly on the dysfunctional and problematic aspects of a society under sybil, we rarely see what life is like for a "normal" person. Because everything revolves around Akane and and the enforcers, the viewers perception is going to be biased. What we're seeing is the very worst this society has to offer. It would be like watching cops and expecting that to be an accurate cross section of life for all social classes.
It's an attempt at an objectively run society. It does so by creating an objective inter-subjectivity that is the collection of deviant minds.
Gino wants to die.
He won't die.
Will Akane stay as the MC?
In our next episode of "crime coefficient 420", G-boy and Tsu-Tsu come to a hot lead while hot boxing.
Gino needs a mustache.
>arms completely straight
Move your seat up god damn.
So why do robots have Psycho Passes?
Pretty sure she will be.
Daily reminder that Makishima is a pretentious hipster incapable of coming up with original dialogue and ideas, so he goes around quoting and name dropping under the pretense of free thought.
I want to fuck Akane.
She probably wouldn't understand dick.
So I came to acquire this a few days ago it contains some data and other neat thing in it but I don't know if it's already on the net since I didn't check does some /a/non want me to scan it ?
Othersiwe I can't wait for Season 2 but I'm still afraid since the Urobutcher isn't the writer anymore.
There's some tumblr link on google where somebody wrote it all out, but I can't quickly find any scans of the full book.
Where did you get it?
What would it take to mindbreak Akane?
She's too stupid to be mindbroken.
I bought it at CD japan.
Alright I'm gonna start scanning it tonight and then post it tomorrow stay tuned.
You're a good guy, anon
I wish you an unchangeable powder blue psycho pass
Daily reminder that Shougo is just as bad as Lelouch.
I think you meant good
You've never been to jail or prison have you?
It sucks more ballsack that getting fucked in the ass by a giant nigger dick. If you get thrown in prison, you will experience giant nigger dick!
Getting stuck in a 10x10 cube with no privacy, no freedom, shit food, shit drink, and no form of entertainment besides a small TV set that plays CNN all day is not a good thing.
>Crime and Punishment
>Not Minority Report
are you fucking kidding me
you had one job
Reminds me of K-ON
This merch has been targeted for enforcement.
Better, both are incredibly stupid in terms of the way they choose to accomplish their goals, but Lelouch is blithely incompetent to a greater degree than Shougo.
Don't bullshit me.
I didn't have this one. Now my CC420 collection has grown.
Honestly that's not so different from my life anyways, all that is missing is a computer to watch anime on.
Sybil isn't so bad.
just how high do you even have to be just to do something like that
>your pyscho pass is green and purple today
I don't understand.
What is this?
How do you not know about sweet Bro and hella Jeff?
it's the only good thing to come out of Homestuck
Well fuck you then.
Oh shit. That brings back bad memories.
What do you actually understand under nature? If you would look closely "nature" is not a person or some conscious being. It can not benefit or have any problems. Humans tend to dream in their perfect image of nature which are in fact just little ecosystems we don't want to collapse because this is actually our natural environment. I think it might even be some kind of self protective mechanism.
I do think "Nature" does not "benefit" from the existence of humans in your words. But only from the viewpoint of a human being.
If we would fuck up everything on the planet with nukes for example most creatures on Earth would die along with humans. The rest of which has not that big problems with a strongly radiating environment would live on and not give any fucks. For example cockroaches, they could not even observe the difference, "they" do not even have any means of leaving behind knowledge or any culture in our sense. No one would give a single fuck. Poor animals, poor plants its all some kind of sympathy we have to our favorite environment.
Don't talk about missteps in evolution, its just a natural process and as you see "evolution" has done its process right. It has created a species which can survive in even the harshest of environments. But well on the long run I guess it will fail as humans will, because of their social structures and individualism and self awareness (which you had said nicely) will lead him to self destruction.
History has shown us that all big human societies have fallen down to their self destruction. ALL big empires had that problem. The Persian Empire, the Inka's, Rome, China, the Ottoman Empire. All these were, on a global scale, pretty "isolated" groups of humans sometimes reaching over big parts of the globe but not like today reaching over the entire globe.
it will happen, but when?
How would you know?
I'm an anime.
But it's the FUTURE.
Maybe I want to be in a FUTURE prison.
Besides, some prison are supposed to be really nice.
Did they ever fix the shit animation (90% of this episode) in the BD release?
>Maybe I want to be in a FUTURE prison
Brevik is in a pretty futuristic prison, he's going on a hunger strike right now to get his PS2 upgraded to a PS3 or PS4. What a wonderful age we live in.
Yes. I was rewatching the BD, expected to laugh again at the 'psycho-pass.gif' scene, but it was changed with some smooth close up of flying phone as far I remember
"NO MOE" THEY SAID
A failure in all departments
We're dark and edgy
Good to know. The amount of QUALITY in some Psycho Pass episodes was awful, what the hell happened in the animation studio back then..
That was pretty the worst out of all of them really, nothing could top that mess.
The butcher's cold stare can make anyone fuck up.
This only made him stare at them harder.
Is it true that after this episode had aired cast apologized in twitter?
Apparently after the animation team did episode 16 they felt like they needed a break and decided to outsource the next two episodes, and that team was where all the QUALITY came from
Yeah, I dont know who specifically but they did apologize and to try and make up for it they were planning on re-animating those two eps for the Blu-Ray release
Staff apologizing for QUALITY after an episode isn't really that rare, it's happened for other shows too. This were quite bad though, iirc they went out and apologized for ep18 before it even aired.
We've had a couple of threads were comparisons were posted, you can probably find them in the archive. They did redo a lot of stuff, though some of the fixes were a bit weird.
I didn't even know about this thankfully, because I watched the BD, but seeing about those gifs is always hilarious.
Alright quick update guys I just finished the book scan.
I'll do some edit and crop some image and release it tomorrow till then have a good night gentleman.
My understanding is that some of the last few episodes were only just finishing being animated before they aired. The director I think apologized for the bad quality of Episode 18.
I have the BD-rips though and all the QUALITY animation of those episodes is pretty much fixed, so it's good they they recognized the problem and got to it. Some shows aren't that lucky and suffer from far worse.
She's criminally asymptomatic
>I just finished the book scan.
>Crime coefficient over 400
Love you, anon
>S2 will be horrifying and kill off every good character
>mfw that's exactly what I want to see
My prediction is that Akane will be found asymptomatic and go on the run.
all the good characters are already dead
I loved the little hints they gave you and the outright shit that they throw in your face at the last episode when you find out the techie and band enforcer are having a little side thing.
But we knew that from literally episode 1, or whenever they were first introduced. Mayoi walked out of the techie's room while still getting dressed.
YOU HAD ONE JOB
Oh wow, they did a nice job of cleaning up that mess.
And we're not even half way through the episode yet.
From all shit moe slice of life anime I've watched, I was half expecting there to be
>IT WAS A MISUNDERSTANDING, I WAS JUST GETTING A FLU SHOT
After the first couple of episodes I got the tone of the show and definitely knew that was happening.
How could they fuck up the colors vest of old pope between two frame jesus christ that like the basic things.
Fucking hell yeah.
Yeah, that was the last one.
hahahahahaha oh my fucking god
Akane's long hair is to make her look more like Makashima.
will she go blond?
Dunno. I think they're just going for the vague similarity.
>Akane's long hair
>all those miscolors on his jacket/shirt
CAUSE I FEEEEEEEL
No seriously S2 when
so like, has anyone here actually read any neitzche or Kierkegaard? i mean lots of anime has token existentialism but psycho pass took it to the max.
for example, would anyone here agree that makishima is meant to represent the ubermensch?
im not sure how philosophically representative any of the other characters are but ginoza is pretty fucking last-man for the majority of the season and kougami seems a pretty good representation of neitzche's view of most normal people.
>so like, has anyone here actually read any neitzche or Kierkegaard?
>i mean lots of anime has token existentialism but psycho pass took it to the max.
>for example, would anyone here agree that makishima is meant to represent the ubermensch?
Consciously? I don't think so. A lot of neitzchean (and to a lesser extent kierkegaardian) concepts have become part of the western zeitgeist. The typical Noir antagonist is essentially an ubermensch but it's generally not a conscious reference to neitzche or anything.
I liked PSYCHO-PASS.
I hope they make more PSYCHO-PASS.
How can I look forward to S2 or a movie if Shogo isn't there?
My skin crawled whenever I heard those engrish terms uttered(Domeenaytor, etc).
the show was rampant with stiff animation, but I feel that's on account of the designs weren't suited for animation.
Where do hummingbirds rate on the husbando scale?
slow version here
That's the bible she got blapped with.
>second from the top
Every fucking time.
I will begin covering both Neitzche and Kierkgaard in my Philosophy of Religion class. Give me a few more months, and maybe in the next PP thread I can answer you.
woops I mean protagonist
Did you watch this show an episode at a time, or marathon it?
Somewhere in between?
Watching it as it aired is the only way to go. The threads after HAIPAAH OHHHTSU and the QUALITY episode were gold.
I caught up to it as it was airing. I watched the last half with /a/.
I marathoned it unfortunately, the threads look like they were good
