Psycho-Pass, a creepy anime of sorts.
Bloody, creepy, yet exciting. Psycho-Pass is an anime with people committing crimes. Thing is, it’s nothing ordinary about how the people in it committed their crimes. I’ve always had a knack of watching these sorts of shows which involve some sort of investigation in respective shows but I’ve never seen something like Psycho-Pass, which brings me to why I am writing about it.
Now I know plenty of you know who the scriptwriter is. If you don’t, then I guess it’s better if you do. Some say he loves writing tragic stories, some might even say he ‘s a sadist. Others even labelled him as the heartless scriptwriter or the “Urobutcher”. He is none other then Gen Urobuchi, most famously known for his part in the tragic Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Knowing this, you would expect the worse already.
For those of you who haven’t had the motivation or such to watch it yet, Psycho-Pass is futuristic based and since it has a futuristic setting, it is possible to measure someone’s emotions, desires and every inclination. With that, it is possible to determine whether someone is a criminal or not. To put it simply, the people in the future can’t hide anything about themselves, and that is a scary prospect indeed. A smart way to come up with a backdrop.
The part where I find really nice about the anime is of course, the OP and EDs. Sony Music knows how to strut their stuff when it comes to presenting music for an anime full of tension, and they didn’t fall short of it this time at all. “abnormalize” by ling tosite sigure certainly gave us the eerie feel to the anime for a start and the ED was nothing short of great. “Namae no Nai Kaibutsu” by EGOIST gave a spectacular end to every episode of it.
To sum it all up, Psycho-Pass was certainly a joy to watch, nevermind the the horror and the gore that comes with it.
