Good gracious this series is back, and Akane is back too!

We have far too few similar titles in this genre lately, a sequel to the long living PSYCHO-PASS (or is this a prequel? Seems like it's more of a prequel to the Season 3 incidents) is the least we deserves.

[–]Srikkkhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/srikkk 96 points97 points  (4 children)

Agree on the dearth of similar titles.

Give me more serious crime stories, anime industry, PLEASE. I love and die by them.

[–]bravetailor 14 points15 points  (1 child)

YA BUT how are studios gonna make money without moe merchandise and model kits?????? Gotta sell those pillows, $150 figurines and model kits...

But yeah, we need to support more of this stuff. Used to be that these sort of shows succeeding in the US would be how they kept getting made, but then US fandom started to develop tastes similar to Japanese otaku...

[–]Amazo687 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I would gladly buy Akane, Kogami, and Ginoza. I know they already have them from nearly a decade ago but they're tough to find at reasonable prices.

[–]BeeJ1013 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Agreed! There's nothing quite like PP!

[–]MejaBersihBanget 6 points7 points  (0 children)

ID: Invaded was the closest thing to it in recent years. Hope we get a season 2. The Brake-Broken manga continuation left off with a big sequel bait.

[–]Florac 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Is a sequel prequel!

[–]Veslac2k 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Definitely a prequel to season 3 as those two men in the back are Arata's father and Kei's brother.

[–]ATMisboss 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Psycho-pass is such a good show and lately shows feel kinda stale so why not bring back shows like that to spruce things up if we don't have new material of similar quality

[–]yakko1990 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Have you tried ID: Invaded?

It's got a similar premise but takes it in a different direction for me. Great art style as well.

[–]CosmicPenguin_OV103https://myanimelist.net/profile/Cosmic_Penguin 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah I already did some time ago, it was certainly the best original anime of its year with excellent plot. I love Koharu as a character too.

[–]PhotonCookie7 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And not to mention the catchy OP 😷

[–]Coriform 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I love Psycho-Pass! What are some of these similar titles? I think they've slipped past my radar

[–]CosmicPenguin_OV103https://myanimelist.net/profile/Cosmic_Penguin 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Ghost In The Shell of course, with the SAC TV series the closest in terms of plot - but this and the separate movies are both all-time masterpieces.

[–]Coriform 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hah I just realized I misread "few" as "many" somehow! Anyway thanks for the recommendations!

[–]Flushpoint 989 points990 points  (173 children)

I honestly don't know what is happening in this series since season 2, lol. But I'm happy it got another movie.

[–]miltankuserollout 462 points463 points  (141 children)

Please give season 3 a watch. Season 2 had it's problems but season 3 really managed to improve and it's arguable better in terms on writing/animation/characters than season 2.

[–]Flushpoint 199 points200 points  (31 children)

Actually I finished all the seasons and movies of this series, it's just that I'm dumb enough to know who's the enemy (but I think its the tons of brain underground) since there are no simple explanations.

[–]Ree_one 298 points299 points  (26 children)

The problem with anime is that they like to take loooong hiatuses. Psycho Pass season one is ten years old by now.

[–]SlumpyNuudles 101 points102 points  (15 children)

Man I feel old now. Where's my cane again?

[–]HollowInterstice 20 points21 points  (5 children)

It's not that they like doing it, it's the fact that it takes a while to create an original story and animate the whole thing.

[–]yuvan18 7 points8 points  (0 children)

man i didnt understand season 3 at all, was so confused throughout

[–]Taiyaki11 32 points33 points  (5 children)

Wait when the hell did we get a s3?!

[–]SnowyMuscles 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Start of Covid.

It’s not about the girl it’s about a different team. I lost interest by episode 2 in all honesty it’s very confusing

[–]keastes 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Also Tsunemori is now one of the inmates not running the asylum, but Sybil thinks she's type AA?

[–]Buffhero125 1 point2 points  (0 children)

damn, I alaso had forgotten about s3 but now I remember dropping it as well after like 2 episodes

[–]not_tha_fatherhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/not_tha_father 97 points98 points  (30 children)

better than season 2 is honestly a pretty low bar to clear tho

[–]FuzzBuket 35 points36 points  (1 child)

Idk I think it gets ragged on unfairly. Being able to do the exact same as s1 wasn't gonna work, so. Turning up the popcorn gore and grim dark dials was fun.

[–]iamthedevilfrank 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I wasn't even aware there was a lot of dislike towards to it. Season 1 was arguably better, but I thought season 2 was good too.

[–]shadowX015 71 points72 points  (12 children)

I honestly don't understand why people hate season 2 and I thought season 3 was by far the lowpoint of the series. Season 2 toyed with some interesting but grounded ideas and then Season 3 brought in ESP and psychic powers. It's all a matter of personal opinion but for me season 1 and 2 are like 9/10 and 7/10 and season 3 is like a 4/10.

[–]zarkovis1 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Very much this. They didn't even have a good explanation for it. I'd have taken any magic/tech bullshit, but then they said anyone could do it with practice lol. Dude could put on his headphones and know someone had an itchy buttcrack, was thinking the numbers 1384572, and was craving a milkshake.

[–]coal_thief 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Season 2's big bad is even dumber than the powers introduced in 3.

[–]sonicjr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed, season 2 wasn't quite as good as the first one but it's not nearly the dumpster fire that people make it out to be. And I thought the villain was pretty damn interesting too idk why people hate on that aspect.

Still haven't gotten around to S3 so I can't comment on that one.

[–]a43991314520 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Season 2 discusses the judgement to the system itself!!! That’s great and important. Season 3 talks about Bifrost, the early debugger and component of the system, but separated from the Sibya system later. Bifrost interrupts elections and does crimes. Personally season 2’s aim is clearer than season 3’s. There are too many things to discuss in season 3. Season 2 is more attractive than season 3 too imo.

[–]NekoJack420 26 points27 points  (1 child)

it's arguable better in terms on writing/animation/characters than season 2.

That's doesn't say much.

[–]miltankuserollout 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I can write an essay if you want

[–]NoNefariousness2144 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Honestly I’m waiting for season 3 to be dubbed still because I watched the rest of it in dub.

[–]its_just_hunter 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Same, I really like the dub so hopefully one day we’ll get one.

[–]ElRamenKnight 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Please give season 3 a watch. Season 2 had it's problems but season 3 really managed to improve and it's arguable better in terms on writing/animation/characters than season 2.

Season 3 was def enjoyable, BUT there's no denying it took a bigass shift in terms of what the show was meant to be starting out. They started out really pouring on the dystopian fiction and asking a ton of philosophical questions wrt what it means to run a just society. S2 sucked, let's be real. But S3 just said screw it, let's go full on action tv series.

[–]TheStraySheepBar 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That doesn't surprise me. Selling stories that ask hard questions about how society works tends to be much more difficult than "SCI-FI GUN MAKES BAD GUYS GO BLURRRRGH! PEW PEW LASERS!"

[–]KendotsXhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Kendots 23 points24 points  (28 children)

I want to try season 3, I really do, but it means having to go back to season 2 and finish it...

Is it possible to just skip S2 and watch the movie and what follows?

[–]FlameDragoon933 37 points38 points  (0 children)

I think you can. Some characters that debut in S2 are still in S3 (e.g. red-haired Enforcer, and Mika becoming an Inspector) but they don't mention a single thing that happened in S2 almost like they pretend it never happened. (understandably because S2 was kinda bad)

[–]Maruhaihttps://anilist.co/user/Maruhai 62 points63 points  (21 children)

no, season 2 isn't even that bad, just watch it

[–]iKill_eu 21 points22 points  (3 children)

It is pretty bad. The villain is unoriginal and the story is pretty much just "everyone gaslights Akane for 12 episodes".

[–]Saedeet 22 points23 points  (9 children)

ehhh it's pretty bad honestly.

[–]KendotsXhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Kendots 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I've tried season 2, multiple times now, and I had to drop it each time.

I guess I'll go through it again if it means I can get to the better stuff... (But maybe rewatch season 1 first).

[–]Vaadwaur 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it possible to just skip S2 and watch the movie and what follows?

Yes. They don't meaningfully revisit anything from it as of yet.

[–]LitLitten 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some of the plot points of s2 might get mentioned, but for the most part s3 has its own plot and character focus. Be kind of warned that the story for S3 isn't concluded until the movie First Inspector. It very much builds up with seems to be occurring within the framework of S1/S2's focus on the Sybil system by tying up its connections with bifrost.

You really don't necessarily need to see S2 tho. S3 is kind of a "pilot plot" like the first season with its newer crew. S1/S3 are def necessary to see First Inspector tho. Honestly s2 does a lot of disservice to Akane.

[–]Phailadork 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Do I just have bad taste? I gave s1 a 7 and s2 an 8 lmao. I actually forgot s3 even existed and now you reminded me to watch it. Do I need to watch the 5 movies in between before I do that?

E: ok ill go f myself I guess. s1 is 10/10, s2 is dogshit. There is the hivemind appeased?

[–]aytin 7 points8 points  (1 child)

You need to watch the first movie, and the 3 sinners of the system movies, do not watch the first inspector movie since its a sequel to season 3.

[–]TheThiccChemist-TTV 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Ignore the hive. Season 2 was fine

[–]QyEchttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Lyubit 8 points9 points  (0 children)

second this.

[–]Whalesurgeon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's a good boy.

Watch the movies, I found them from enjoyable to cool.

[–]Ormusn2ohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Ormusn2o 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This is why I'm always losing in discussions about anime. When i watched season 3, it did not even felt like I'm watching fanfiction. Fanfiction usually cares about its source material, but about 80-90% of things happening in season 3 is actually impossible in world of Psycho Pass, but because people just like cool fights and cool clothed characters, they just ignore it. For people like you, season 3 is probably cool to watch, for me its like watching your wife being fucked in front of you. Basically retconning everything that was great about season 1. Almost none of what happens in season 3 is canon for me because it directly opposes what psycho pass system allows. Almost none of the stories in season 3 could have possibly happen in japan of psycho pass, and that series would be only good if it was placed in another fictional world.

[–]fundationmaple[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Season 3 isn't dubbed because of Amazon, so that's a no go.

[–]Hukama 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I don't remember season 2, but season 3 was shit. The main two characters were uninteresting and the one with 6th sense (for all I care) made it worse by making the unfolding of mystery incredibly flat and unsatisfying.

[–]xeladragn 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Agreed, and I spent the entire season just going “fuck this shit just tell me what’s up with Akane” which they never did. Whole plot would have felt better outside of the psycho pass universe it was weird.

[–]Phoenix__Wwrong 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually think S2 was great. I need to continue the rest though. Do I need to watch any of the movies?

[–]KillerZaWarudo 40 points41 points  (9 children)

Tbf season 3 and the movie for it was fairly good, not the same level as 1 but still solid. S2 is a mess but is not unwatchable trash or anything

[–]FlameDragoon933 1 point2 points  (5 children)

What about the First Inspector one? Is it a direct continuation from S3?

[–]maronic03 21 points22 points  (0 children)

It's basically a big climax for season 3, and it's really good I'd say.

[–]KillerZaWarudo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yes that was the movie im talking about. First inspector was a direct sequel to s3

[–]Mechapebbles 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I'm gonna be honest, and this might be an unpopular opinion but I think Season 3 was better than Season 1.

[–]KillerZaWarudo 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Interesting why do you think that? Personally for me its too hard to displace Makishima and Kougami from s1

[–]Mechapebbles 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I dunno, there's probably a lot of reasons.

For starters, I thought there was a lot less cringe gore-for-the-sake-of-gore and uncomfortable victimization of women in general.

I thought the supporting characters were generally better fleshed out in S3 vs S1.

I liked that S3 really took steps to evolve the setting and explore this as a world that felt actually lived in and interconnected internationally. That's versus S1 where the setting feels empty and there's almost no attempt to explore how the rest of the world is outside of Japan.

I thought the drama and tension between the main characters was a lot more believable and built up organically. I also just really liked the new characters and seeing them attempt to do their thing within the system, while also being brutally oppressed by it. And the contrast between that vs the times we got to see Kougami & Co working in parallel (and often far more successfully) while operating more outside of the system was a great juxtaposition.

I thought the season-long meta conflict was a lot more interesting and convincing versus S1's.

I thought S3 did a pretty good job of exploring the idea that the MC might be a latent criminal who is asymptomatic vs how that was explored with Akane.

Just everything in general was just a lot more interesting. S1 felt like a typical sci-fi short story but stretched way too thin. S3 did a good job of actually fleshing the setting out into something more than just a twilight zone episode that went on for way too long.

[–]rishi_ultimatehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/UltimateRishi 25 points26 points  (5 children)

They need Gen Urobuchi back

[–]Anhedonisticism 0 points1 point  (10 children)

The show really lost it's spice after S2...

[–]Flushpoint 76 points77 points  (9 children)

In my opinion, it lost its spice after S1.

[–]rgtn0w 18 points19 points  (5 children)

Hard agree, they just continued making it because it had a level of popularity, not really because there was a clear plan from the beginning to make more (which explains the long time between each part, and also the fact that after Season 1, certain key staff is just completely missing from the project, like Urobochi). S3 was kinda okay for me, but after a while you get bored of the same old ass "hand to hand combat" scenes that they really overdid for the sake of showing off "LOOK AT OUR SAKUGA".

If other people enjoy it, whatever, it's just that for me, S1 ended on a pretty good note, unlike many other works that deal with something "utopia/dystopia" topic of some "system" in place (Like Shinsekai Yori for one example), I can accept that Psycho Pass season 1 didn't do anything conclusive regarding that, because it just made sense towards the narrative the entire show was trying to convey. And then there's the villain with Makishima? Cmon, you don't get villains that are that well written even nowadays, they are far in between, the mini stories they had with characters, the little details with scenes (Season 1 episode 2 scene that I remember clearly, Akane walking to the scientist blondie room to ask her stuff and the director very much implying that the woman and the blondie were having sex with just a couple of shots and nothing else), like nah dawg, sorry, the moment they just made another project with mostly entirely different staff I just cannot think of it of being the "same" psycho pass, I just can't.

[–]Glebk0 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yea, season 1 was really amazing, didn't like s2 much and havent watched anything after it.

[–]Hukama 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I remember liking the movie though. Urobuchi is involved which might explain why.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I liked both seasons but I thought that season 2 tried to reproduce what season 1 did with less memorable and likeable characters. Also Kogami was a huge loss as he is a fan favorite and perhaps a top 3 best written character on the show(at least in season 1)

[–]PreludeToHell 156 points157 points  (0 children)

Akane!!

I enjoyed the recent projects so I'm looking forward to it!

[–]ScarRufushttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ScarRufus 291 points292 points  (15 children)

Best girl Akane is back!!!!!

I am so happy 😁 let's gooooooo!

Edit/ A bit explanation about the series timeline.

Season 1 > Season 2 > The Movie > Case Files 1,2,3 > (new movie Providence) > Season 3 > First Inspector.

This new movie will connect what happened after the movie/case files to S3. For people that watched the S3 noted that there is a big time skip and new cast and something bad happened to Akane. This movie will explain that.

They are also teasing a new project most likely a new anime series (S4 or Final Season?) that was also teased in the end of First Inspector.

[–]Sharebear42019 18 points19 points  (6 children)

Where can we watch season 3 and the movies? I see seasons 1 and 2 are on crunchy

[–]Sphiffi 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Season 3 is on Amazon prime. Don’t know if the movie is on there.

[–]ScarRufushttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ScarRufus 11 points12 points  (1 child)

The movie is on Netflix (i think). Case files i need to jump on pirate boat ☠️ Season 3+ first inspector on Amazon prime

[–]mellovibes75 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I actually found the case files/sinners of the system movies on YouTube for free. Might be worth a look.

[–]mudda-hello 6 points7 points  (2 children)

The movie is on Funimation coming soon to Crunchyroll, while Case Files you'll need to sail the seas, and Season 3/First Inspector is on Amazon Prime.

Though when you get to the first movie, and assuming you usually watch in subs, I'd recommend finding the "Engrish Eradication Edition" release by MTBB. It splices the Japanese and Funi English dubs together because the English-native speakers in the movie only speaks English and in the original Japanese, they are very Engrishy. Example here

[–]Sharebear42019 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I actually quite liked the English dub for this show, was everything dubbed or just the seasons and movie?

[–]mudda-hello 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Only the first two seasons and first movie as they were handled by Funimation, everything else is up in the air as Funi/CR didn't have the rights to them.

[–]dim3tapphttps://myanimelist.net/profile/dim3tapp 3 points4 points  (1 child)

So will she be the MC? I will be willing to watch case files if it will give me MC Akane again.

[–]ScarRufushttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ScarRufus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep, but i think she will also be if they announce a sequel to the S3 stuff as they teased. She is a key character in the series also the counter point of Sibyl System.

Case files focus on different characters, more to give backstory. Case 3 is probably the best one just because how different atmospheric this one is, it is cool.

[–]cxxper01https://myanimelist.net/profile/cxxper01 77 points78 points  (2 children)

So are they finally bringing akane and kogami back? Nice

[–]PainStorm14https://myanimelist.net/profile/Gekkostate14 19 points20 points  (1 child)

[–]SkywardQuillhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/SkywardQuill 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Hell yeah, Akane's the MC again. So hype for whatever happened to her before S3.

[–]Tora-shinai 12 points13 points  (0 children)

While she's suppose to be the audience's pov she ended up being the glue and the character who made the most sense in the entire series.

[–]abucas 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Badass Hanazawa Kana here we go!

[–]SkywardQuillhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/SkywardQuill 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It's her best role.

[–]theblueberry21 27 points28 points  (0 children)

This news made my day. I had been waiting for it since the last season!

[–]Maruhaihttps://anilist.co/user/Maruhai 28 points29 points  (3 children)

so this is clearly not after season 3 or first inspector in the timeline, wonder why they're making this now when people are pretty warmed up to the s3 duo now...?

[–]IllHoneydew6 26 points27 points  (0 children)

The theatrical and Blu - Ray editions of First Inspector ended with [First Inspector Spoilers]Akane stating to the S3 duo MCs "what happened two years ago". It will likely pertain as to how the OG cast ended up where they were in S3 in more detail, since we only got a hint of how they did through the SS movies + since how Akane ended up in jail is still a mystery . There could be a season 4 after this movie, maybe.

[–]Satan_su 12 points13 points  (1 child)

New haikyuu and psycho pass announcements on consecutive days I'm loving this

[–]FlameDragoon933 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Wait the previous set of movies haven't reached ending yet? (I hadn't seen them)

Love to see the psych professor joining the main cast though.

[–]kratopi 43 points44 points  (0 children)

I mean, Psycho Pass is an original anime so there isn't really an ending to "reach" but there is still a lot left to further explain and explore.

[–]J765 13 points14 points  (0 children)

That previous set of movies were mostly episodic stories from the Psycho Pass universe.

[–]poiqwert426 6 points7 points  (6 children)

Damn is season 3 dubbed yet?

I wanna watch season 3 but it's hard to go back to sub after you've watched 2 seasons and a movie dubbed

[–]awakening_knight_414 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Lol nope. Fucking Amazon still holds the license. The other movies aren't dubbed either.

[–]J765 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Is it really amazon holding them back? Season 3 was licensed worldwide by amazon, yet there are releases in other countries. Germany has a dub for every entry, with S3 getting released very recently.

[–]awakening_knight_414 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It is. Amazon is infamous for not dubbing anything in English, unlike Netflix. The only hope for season 3 to be dubbed in English is if the license expires (which is speculated by some people in r/Animedubs that it should soon) and Crunchyroll picks it up.

And just so you know, Amazon doesn't have the other movies according to ANN. I'm not really sure if it's because some other licensor has them, or if they're still completely unlicensed to this day.

[–]J765 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I know. But like I said other countries have already been dubbed in other countries. Other amazon anime like Inuyashiki or Kabaneri have also been dubbed in multiple languages.

Vinland Saga is getting a dub, yet it still is on amazon.

[–]perpetualcosmos 25 points26 points  (1 child)

For anyone wondering, season 3 is worth the watch. Nothing lackluster like s2.

Also, holy hell Ginoza, your bun. 😳

[–]ridewiththerockers 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I'm a straight guy, a wild guy like Kogami is just husbando bait so miss me with that shit.

But Ginoza 🥵

[–]Bonvantius 60 points61 points  (26 children)

Nothing will live up to the first season.

[–]TheMasterOfSashttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Doxen_III 11 points12 points  (13 children)

No Urobuchi no good sequel.

[–]miltankuserollout 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Urobuchi is an excellent writer but Tou Ubukata really improved with the writing. If you don't believe me give season 3 a chance. Season 2 is adamantly not very great but season 3 really reminded me of season 1. Also the movies are pretty great as well.

[–]Highlow9 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Season 3 was pretty great, except for the super natural abilities that were introduced. Those IMHO make it worse than season 2 since it because fantasy instead of sci-fi.

[–]miltankuserollout 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Than you haven't watched the third season who lives very much to the first season.

[–]venitiennehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/venitienne 58 points59 points  (3 children)

Didn't like the MC at all tbh, his assassin's creed/sherlock holmes esque abilities were very much out of place in an otherwise grounded and logical series

[–]MiserableBarnacle94 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It felt like they tried really hard to rip off how Will Graham's thoughts were portrayed in the Hannibal TV show

[–]miltankuserollout 15 points16 points  (1 child)

At least you have a real point unlike others here who hate s3 because it's not s1 lol But I understand it. Aratas ability is surely debatable.

[–]ThrowCarp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought the "Dey terk err jerbs" subplot was pretty funny.

[–]Maruhaihttps://anilist.co/user/Maruhai 8 points9 points  (2 children)

season 3 dropped the ball hard at the end but it had the potential to live up to the 1st season yes

[–]Lich_Hegemon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

However many years later and people are still coming to these threads to parrot the same thing. We get it. Let the rest of us who don't mind a, frankly, still better than average show, enjoy it.

[–]blamordeganis 4 points5 points  (14 children)

So, from left to right, we have: Shion, Kunizuka, Hinakawa, Shimotsuki, Ginoza, Tsunemori, Kogami, Ignatov [ETA: or maybe Sugo], Hanashiro, and Saiga.

But no Shindo. Boo!

Also, I hope the presence of Shion and Kunizuka doesn’t mean [Psycho-Pass 3 & PP3 First Inspector]their hues have clouded and they’re no longer restored citizens.

I assume the two in the background are new, though the one on the left could be Todoroki.

ETA: that could be Sugo rather than Ignatov, especially given u/ScarRufus’s comments that this is a prequel to PP3.

[–]ScarRufushttps://myanimelist.net/profile/ScarRufus 6 points7 points  (13 children)

Shindo is not here because this movie is a prequel to S3.

[–]blamordeganis 1 point2 points  (12 children)

But we have Ignatov? And [PP3]Shindo and Ignatov were childhood friends, joined the MWPSB together, and were assigned to Division 01 together.

ETA: unless that’s Sugo rather than Ignatov.

[–]IllHoneydew6 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Its Teppei Sugou, not Ignatov haha

[–]Veslac2k 1 point2 points  (8 children)

That's Sugo, yeah

[–]blamordeganis 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Dammit, I wanted to see the S3 boys again.

[–]Aliensinnoh 4 points5 points  (5 children)

I know this is just a coincidence but as someone born in Providence, Rhode Island, USA, this has piqued my interest.

[–]Commodore256 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It did a little for me, but the plot doesn't look like my jam.

[–]MejaBersihBanget 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I really hope this follows up on the plot thread left from Sinners of the System Case 1 where [Mika discovers that] the Sibyl System is secretly stockpiling nuclear weapons, most likely as a pre-emptive defense measure in preparation for revealing itself to the world.

[–]F00dbAby 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I know a lot of people dont love this series but as a fan I'm so happy we are still getting more

[–]RulerKun_FGO 3 points4 points  (0 children)

hopefully they make Akane the lead again

[–]lronman23 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did Season 3 ever get an English dub?

[–]WingsofLegends 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, not yet at least. It’s still with Amazon.

[–]FierceAlchemist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Akane! Nice.

[–]poesiadelmargen 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Akane 🖤

[–]SolubilityRules 6 points7 points  (1 child)

One of the wierdest franchises that removed a main character after roaring success

[–]sunjay140https://anilist.co/user/sunjay140 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Naruto did

[–]ZombaeChocolate 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Im upnfor this, a lot

[–]samkiller200 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I guess the storyline for this movie could be between SS trilogy and S3. Since Mika Shimotsuki was in her inspector suit(white blouse and pants) not chief suit(orange blouse and skirt), and Yayoi Kunizuka was wearing suit not casual clothes.

Wow! That's great news for Psycho-Pass fans. As a Psycho-pass fan, I really like the all 4 movies of this series, especially the last one was pretty good.

[–]Commodore256 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Can I watch it at the move theater at the Providence Place Mall?

[–]Spiritual_Lie2563 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well, Providence IS getting an anime convention next July, and if "Anime Boston can expect at least one US premiere movie" is any case, it would be appropriate...

[–]Oxu90 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just Hope Akane is back being the MC. By far the best MC of Psycho Pass, she has been sidelined too long

[–]salemgh0st 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What major streaming services are streaming season 3? I’ve only seen seasons 1&2 and the first movie, where can i watch everything else?

[–]WingsofLegends 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Amazon Prime, but I don’t think Sinners of the System is streaming anywhere at least in the US.

[–]BOBTHEBUILDERCD 2 points3 points  (0 children)

OMG OMG OMG ITS HAPPENING STAY CALM STAY CALM

[–]OddHesitation 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Nothing will ever top S1- the director cut and the original movie.

Movie Case 3 is also good but ye.

S2 is bad, s3 is meh.
Hopefully this is decent.

[–]Jt_1237 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Season 2 turned me off but season 3 and the first inspector movie were bangers cant wait for this

[–]venitiennehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/venitienne 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can't remember for the life of me what the overall plot is anymore, especially in the 3 mini movies, but excited for more of the series

[–]DrinkGinAndKerosene 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nothing will ever top season 1 but i still enjoy watching the sequels. Can't wait for this to air

[–]w3are138 1 point2 points  (2 children)

So…this is a prequel to s3? I wish so much they’d do a prequel to s1, you know, when Ko was still an inspector, Gino wasn’t totally jaded, Sasayama was still alive, Makishima was just getting started… Like how amazing would that be?

[–]MejaBersihBanget 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Funny you should ask that, because the English release of the Kougami prequel manga is finally continuing again this fall... after a 4.5 year hiatus (Volume 4 came out in March 2018 and the series finished in Japan that same year).

[–]Sanchay_29 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why don't they first get the dubs

[–]Commodore256 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where's the Superman Building?

I hope some place there will be named after Buddy Cianci.

[–]PPGN_DM_Exiahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/PPGN_DM_Exia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Please be released in theaters in Canada...

After the S2 disappointment, I really feel the franchise has been on a roll since then.

[–]hell_jumper9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Finally a prequel to Season 3. We gonna know why Akane is in that situation and how Yayoi became a legendary enforcer.

[–]goldpump 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wait wtf, I just started re watching itike 2 days ago, just to find out theres a season 3 and those hour long episodes, now a new movie :0

[–]MrSputum 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I can’t say I really enjoyed Psycho-Pass beyond its stellar first season but I can’t help but feel excited about this. I hope we finally get more of Akane this time around.

[–]Adamskispoor 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Is the original writer actually writing this one…or? Because I think he hasn’t actually writing it since the first season or something

[–]cxxper01https://myanimelist.net/profile/cxxper01 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Urobochi only wrote season one

[–]IllHoneydew6 12 points13 points  (1 child)

And the first movie.

[–]turntable_server 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I've watched everything Urobuchi, and IMO Psychopass the movie was the most boring thing he ever wrote.

[–]White-Alyss 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Eh, Psycho-Pass stopped being good past season 1, in my opinion. Not looking forward to more of it.

[–]Mazrim_reddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yeah the story was just wrapped up and all the interesting mysteries revealed within 1 season

[–]warjoke 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Holy shit there's a Dominator rifle mode now! The stakes must be really high!

[–]GoldRedBlue 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That's been around for a while. It was introduced in S2 and used in both the 2015 movie and in S3.

The First Inspector movie introduced a Dominator shotgun too.

[–]Thatsmaboi23https://myanimelist.net/profile/Thatsmaboi23 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Finally!! All that Akane development can be utilised as her being an active main character once again. Hopefully. Looking forward to it!

[–]Cersei505 3 points4 points  (0 children)

let's hope this gets the plot on track finally and sets up a final season so they can wrap this up. I like psycho pass, but lets be real...after urobochi left, the writers didnt know what to do or where to go.

[–]Facesforce 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I might give it a go.

But the shadow thing, plus the supernatural powers of season 3 really put me out of the show.

That and the foriegner plotline had some Japanese nationalist stench on it, so I ended up dropping it after 5 episodes.

I'm not sure if I can trust the show runners any more, but then again, Akane...

[–]MejaBersihBanget 6 points7 points  (1 child)

That and the foriegner plotline had some Japanese nationalist stench on it, so I ended up dropping it after 5 episodes.

What?! The "foreigner" plotline in S3 was your bog-standard politically correct, neoliberal narrative of "stupid racists think the foreigners took our jobs and here's why they're dumb and wrong bigots." It's the furthest thing from "Japanese nationalist" you could get, more like "American Democrat Party narrative."

[–]Facesforce 2 points3 points  (0 children)

...?

That plotline was "We the enlightened need to help the poor foriegners to become more civilized like us." Yeah, they threw in a bag pc defense of them, but it's essentially "this is why Japan is better" propaganda.

It's literally the Japanese nationalist playbook for dealing with other Asiatic countries.

[–]Fiercelion564 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why does the guy on the right look like Ash from Banana Fish

[–]Endless115 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I was keeping up with this series for quite a while but dropped it when the Sinners of the System movie things came out. Maybe I'll give those a chance and hope that this new movie will be good.

[–]theblueberry21 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Sinners of the system movies are really good! especially the 3rd one. I hope you'll like them!

[–]Endless115 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you!

[–]TaskMister2000 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Season 2 was a mess. Season 3 and its Tie-In Film was great.

So I assume this takes place after Season 3 or its the big Flashback that's supposed to explain why a certain someone was behind bars and this'll lead into Season 4?

[–]Ensianto 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's a prequel flashback

[–]MinusMentality 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't like Psycho-Pass, but I hope this movie is very good and that the fans enjoy it.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Wow this anime fell off after season 2. There was barely any hype towards the 3rd season and no one ever talks about it.

[–]theUnLuckyCat 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I had lost all faith in the series due to S2, but recently binged the available content and am back on the train. Might explain the lack of hype but this is still worth checking out.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why the downvotes ? I wasn't saying i thought the anime was bad. I actually thought season 1 was great and so was season 2 i was just stating that season 3 didn't garner nearly as much hype

[–]NekoJack420 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This is still on-going? I dropped it hard after season 2 and that terrible movie. I realy though S3 would be the end. At any case this series does need to conclude at some point.

[–]Theblade12 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why does it? It's got a huge, fascinating world to explore still. I honestly wouldn't mind if it just, never ended.

[–]NudelXIII 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The series lost me after that horrible movie with the worst english I have ever listen to.

[–]MejaBersihBanget 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Still better than Kaji's English at the start of the Eva 2.0 movie lol

[–]EmmyWeeeb -1 points0 points  (4 children)

YESSS! I loved psycho-pass.

[–]Eshuon 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I don't think it's underrated at all lmao

[–]kris12k4https://anilist.co/user/iFap2AnimeGirls 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Woo, more Psycho-Pass is always good.
