Psycho-Pass is a great anime and I want to write a post for each of it’s episodes. It will probably take a long time for me to do that and I apologize for that in advance =)
The episode started with the white haired antagonist talking to one of his subordinates. Right now it looks like he is just helping people commit crimes. If there is a guy who wants to kill someone, he would provide him with ammunition. He looks like he is just doing this for amusement since he doesn’t benefit from the crimes in anyway. Maybe he is afraid of dirtying his hands or maybe he thinks watching the crimes if more fun than committing them. We don’t know for sure yet. If it turns out that he is afraid of dirtying his hands I would be disappointed since I assumed at the beginning that he would make a good antagonist.
In the first part of the episode, the antagonist provided a guy who was being bullied with a memory disc that could be used to hack drones. The guy used the drones to kill the people who bullied him.
Here is another interesting point. When Kogami saw him being bullied he got mad and he helped the guy. But when he came to know that the guy might be the one who killed his colleagues he didn’t mind pushing him into a corner until he snapped.
He is nice and kind under normal conditions but when he is on duty he really is like a hunting dog. He was smiling like he was having fun when he shot a drone. I’ve come to like his character quite a bit.
In the second part of the episode the MWPSB has to break into a house because the toilet in the house has been broken for two months and the owner still hadn’t reported it. I sure don’t want to live in an era where police barge into my home just because I haven’t reported a broken toilet. Kogami found traces of a struggle in the house and they confirmed that the house’s owner has been killed but the owner’s avatar is still active in an online community. This time the antagonist is helping a guy kill people and impersonate their avatars. In the antagonist’s words, he is just giving people a nudge in the right direction and watching them become wolves or guinea pigs.
That is it. The episode was action packed. There wasn’t an elaborate plot or explanations in this episodes. It looks like the animators are trying to make us get acquainted with the way the antagonist, Kogami and MWPSB worked. It was fun to watch and I am looking forward to the next episode. I wish they would tell us more about Kogami and the antagonist in the next episode.
See you next time ^^/
