PostSubject: Anime Viewing: In The Process of Organizing    Wed Jan 09, 2013 6:14 pm





Which anime would you like us to view?
Psycho-Pass
It's a show, and I would recommend episodes 1, 2, 4, and 5.

Synopsis/Background:
It's 2113. The world of Japan is governed by the Sibyl System, an astonishing technology that quantifies all aspects of a person's personality and uses it to determine which lifestyle best suits them. In particular, the Sibyl System incorporates a type of gun called a Dominator, which measures a human's emotions and mental state in order to identify criminal intent in a person's soul and quantifies it into numbers. The Dominator's trigger is unlocked when it is pointed at someone with a high enough Psycho-Pass level, either paralyzing or killing them. Anyone found exceeding a certain number is deemed a threat in need of therapy, or in extreme cases, execution. The numbers used to measure a person's soul are called their "Psycho-Pass".
Hunting down those deemed a threat to society because of high Psycho-Pass levels is the Public Safety Bureau. Composed of Enforcers, latent criminals whose Psycho-Pass has exceeded the acceptable level but have been granted permission to go outside to deliver justice on fellow criminals, and Inspectors who supervise them making sure they don't go too far, the pairs make sure latent criminals are not left to roam the streets. The anime follows Unit One of the Public Safety Bureau's Criminal Investigation Division--in particular, the newly assigned Inspector Akane Tsunemori and the experienced Enforcer Shinya Kogami.

Any comments about the anime?
It is a rather dark anime, and there may be some NSFW sections (it deals with serial killers and other criminals, after all). However, the anime does suggest lots of fascinating philosophical questions regarding the nature of this society under the Sibyl system.
Unfortunately, the four episodes chosen are only a small glimpse into the story (and only a small bit about the main villain so far).

What genre/interests does this anime cover?
Cyberpunk, thriller, dystopian, crime.

PM me suggestions for next week's anime using this form, and a link to a picture. I will draw who will get host next week from a hat. If you would like to write discussion questions then send them with the recommendation form. If not I am more than happy to write them for you. Also if for any reason you have difficulty filling out the recommendation form for any reason make sure to tell me, and I can help you fill it out.

Omgomgomg. The guy that does Gin's voice in the sub is the same guy who does Mahiro in Zetsun no Tempest, and Soul from Soul Eater XDD. I love finding that kind of stuff out!

I thought he voiced Yoshino in Zetsuen. Kind of makes sense, both Gin and Yoshino are pretty calm.
Have no idea about Soul since I haven't watched Soul Eater yet.

It was a sweet movie. It was only 45 minutes so I felt there could have been more content that they could have added since the environment and characters are quite interesting. Reminds me a bit of Kamisama Hajimemashita and perhaps Usagi Drop.
Hotarou and Gin make a cute couple. *ships*

Spoiler button is tempting, save your curiosity for the movie, lol.

Why did you make me watch this? WHY?

I'm the type that bottles up their emotions and can find it hard to express them but this is one of those rare movies that had me crying at the end!

Seriously though, thanks for recommending this one. Going straight up to be one of my most favourite anime I've watched so far.

Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad out of Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

Haha, I was going to put a warning that you shouldn't watch it in the morning or it will ruin your day, but I didn't want to give anything away.

It left me feeling empty... >_<;

If you were given the choice of being with the person that you love but you can never touch him/her or for a moment to feel one another and then that person will disappear, what will it be?!?

Someone who plays Call of Duty obviously has sophisticated taste when it comes to the arts. I truly apologize sir =3.

Man, I am so out of touch with the games. For the longest time I thought Call of Duty was called "Brown Sweaty Racism." Must have just been me looking at the package instead of the name.

Oh wow, not a lot of ppl watched it this week.
I'm not that surprised though. Shougo and romance anime hasn't been doing too well in terms of ratings and DVDs sold (even if there are exceptions, there are very few).

Yeah, I was surprised too! XD We are just getting started though, so it might take a few weeks for things to pick up. I was more surprised only one person sent me a recommendation.
