Psycho-Pass was an absolute thrill to watch with its excellent combination of a intricate plot and ever-developing characters that were all set in a very thought-provoking dystopian future Japan. This show grabbed me instantly and wouldn't let go. The over-arching plot is just superb with plenty of twists, shocking moments, varying sets/situations and even a few feels along the way. The use of criminal-coefficients and the Sibyl system along with the themes that they invoked have been done before but I thought that P-P put a very cool and unique spin on it. This wasn't just an "evil" big brother system that was controlling every one in a totalitarian manner. There were very clear benefits to this so-called "perfect" system and this is where a lot of the show's conflicts arise. The characters are also where the show truly excelled. Kougami was a badass MC with a very clear motivation for "justice" but was constantly walking the tightrope between what was right and vigilantism. I initially thought that the female MC, Akane, was a bit weak but I was definitely proven wrong. Her development from a naive and gullible newbie to a true and intuitive detective struggling with the ideals and purpose of the Sibyl was handled excellently. It was very believable and followed along with my same feelings about the world of P-P. The other supporting characters were very strong as well especially Masaoka. And, last but not least, was the villain Makishima. He was truly one of the best villains that I've seen in a while with his brilliant schemes, awesome dialogue (so many quotes from brilliant authors from Shakespeare to recent philosophers), and his very distinct motivations. You could really sympathize and understand what he was trying to accomplish yet at the same time, despised/loved him at the same time. Watch this show ASAP. This is one psychological thriller that you shouldn't miss. You won't be disappointed. I can't wait for the movie and the second season to come out.

Really agree on everything said here. Movie also isnt as bad as people make it out to be. I really hope it will get the 3rd Season.

I adored this show! I liked the second season even more than the first -- shame it ended after only 11 episodes!

I just finished the 1st season, and even though the 2nd (last season) may turn out disappointing, based on the 1st alone I feel confident enough to say that this is probably one of the most underrated anime shows of its kind. I appreciate it more than the generally top-ranked anime shows of the past 2~3 years, even though direct comparisons can't be made in most cases. Everyone has a different opinion, but just to give a personal example in contrast with one of the all time top-rated animes: it took me around 10eps. of Steins;Gate to get interested in the show, but even then some episodes were slow-burning, some even very boring, overall I struggled to keep up interest and overlook some stupid aspects. With Psycho-Pass, I was hooked within 2eps. and couldn't get enough of it: fast-paced, action-packed, mature... Comparing the genre to Western-made movies, this show gave me a Blade Runner/Judge Dread/Minority Report mashup vibe, although much more thrilling and entertaining than those 3 combined. I can't really make a comparison to other anime that remind me of it because I haven't watched that many anime shows to be able to point towards. Absolutely gorgeous animation.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
