I just tried Psycho-Pass for some random entertainment to kill time last night, and ended up really liking it. Considering how often we put something random on Netflix and I fall asleep before we're 30 minutes into it, I am impressed that I was wide awake through three whole episodes of this show, so I'm guessing that means it's refreshingly good to my anime'd-out brain.
I passed it up a lot on Netflix for other things even though they've been pushing it at me for a few months now, so now I regret I didn't try it sooner. So far, it seems to be about a group of inspectors who investigate, and suppress or kill, people who are tagged as "latent criminals" based on their psychological stats. The first three episodes were villain-of-the-day, so I'm hoping there will be a bigger villain who will span the majority of the episodes in the future. Though the story follows a young up-and-coming inspector who just joined the group, I'm glad that she's not an obnoxious heroine. She's young and naive in a lot of ways, but I take it as a good sign that she hasn't turned me off yet. Plus, the other characters haven't been easy on her either when she's said/done something naive, so I have hope that she'll get past that stuff quickly and we'll actually see her mature into a badass inspector by the end.
Has anyone else tried this show? It reminds me of the world in Ghost in the Shell and Bladerunner with technology influencing law enforcement in some pretty interesting ways.
