''Psycho-Pass'' is an {{Cyberpunk}} anime series that premiered in [[Fall2012Anime Fall 2012]] on Fuji TV's {{Noitamina}} block. In the [[TheFuture 22nd century]], Japan is tightly governed by the Sibyl System and their enforcers, the Public Safety Bureau. The Sibyl System maintains order by using advanced technology to instantaneously analyse a person's psychological profile and [[ThoughtCrime calculate the likelihood that person will commit a crime]]. Factors such as emotional state, mental health, stress levels and criminal desire are quantified into a single number known as a [[TitleDrop "Psycho-Pass"]]; if this number exceeds an acceptable threshold, [[PrecrimeArrest the target is judged a threat and sentenced to mandatory therapy]]. In the most extreme cases, where the Psycho-Pass is so high that rehabilitation is deemed impossible, the Sibyl System orders immediate execution.

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: A major theme. One of the Enforcers comments that high Criminal Coefficients can be contagious, which is why it is so important to remove latent criminals from society. This can also apply to the Enforcers themselves, who basically admit to being latent criminals with a badge and gun. The abyss line is quoted by Tomomi in Episode 4 in regards to Akane wanting to know more about Kougami; he tells her that wanting to understand Kougami will lead to her becoming like him, and that Kougami [[FriedrichNietzsche stared too long into the abyss]]. Further demonstrated in Episode 9 where the mere act of learning criminal psychology could cause your criminal coefficient to skyrocket. This was a huge problem in the early days of the Sibyl System which led to the adoption of Enforcers.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Dominator guns are incredibly powerful and can completely eliminate the target, causing them to blow apart in a shower of LudicrousGibs, but without a wireless connection to Sibyl they are unable to authorize action and are completely useless, so if you can't get a signal you might as well not have one. This is not just a one off problem either, it occurs multiple times in the series. And when switching to a lethal mode, the gun needs a few seconds to complete its transformation sequence. Anyone who has had to fight for their life can tell you that a split second can literally mean the difference between surviving or dying. This is most apparent in episode 11, when the "Lovecraft" attack drone nearly manages to bite off Kougami's face because his Dominator was busy first registering the target as a threat, and ''then'' transforming and ''then'' charging up a shot.

** Episode 8 is the biggest Wham Episode of the entire series. [[spoiler:Kamui's body is composed of various parts from the other 184 children who died in the plane crash. The Tougane Foundation's technology is responsible for the existence of Sibyl. Tougane is a [[DesignerBabies Designer Baby]] who is the personal assassin of the Sibyl System, and Chief Kasei's resident brain at the time is Tougan's mother, Tougane Misako. And they're about to reveal the truth of Sibyl to Mika.]]

** Averted. The PSB has their own therapist who helped inspectors from being stressed and latent criminals to lower their crime coefficient. But again, it's up to the clients if they want to continue the therapy which is TruthInTelevision.
** Played straight with [[spoiler:Kirito Kamui. Once he realized he was becoming invisible to the Sibyl System and that he was in effect, becoming an {{Unperson}}, he tried find help from various doctors and counselors, but they all turned him away since associating with someone not recognized by Sibyl could cause them to doubt the system, which would in turn cause their Hues to darken.]]

* ShooOutTheClowns: Akane's friends shes seen hanging out with are some of the only recurring characters who aren't directly tied to the plot and serve as moments of levity. [[spoiler:Then one of them gets kidnapped and killed and the last time we see the other is at her funeral.]]
