** It was implied Sibyl helped them in secret, as having them come to Japan allowed them to be easily executed and lead Akane on a wild goose chase to see Shinya, [[spoiler:where it would allow Sibyl to have Nicholas Wong kill both of them, tying up two loose ends easily, while they work on their objective of controlling SEAUN and then killing Nicholas. This nearly happens perfectly in Sibyl's favor too.]]

* The Sibyl System has caused their own society to become completely paranoid about their mental state. With the citizens so shielded and infantilized, even the slightest trauma poses a serious danger to someone's Crime Coefficient. So why in the name of ''actual sanity'' would they design the Dominators to kill people in the most gory, traumatic and visually distressing way possible??

*** What bugs me even more is that - how the hell are Dominators able to judge Sibyl system (a collective mind), even though they could not yet judge Kamui (also a collective mind)? It would make much more sense if Kamui's Dominator didn't recognise Sibyl before it made a decision to accept collective Psycho-Passes, because the situation in which Sibyl can measure ''itself'' but ''not'' Kamui is completely ridiculous.

** Actually, the scary thing is that it ''did'' change its color - [[NiceJobBreakingItHero for the worse]]. In the movie, Sybil is shown to be more manipulative, ruthless and power hungry than ever before AND is better at it! The likely explanation is that, before judging itself, Sybil purged the brains which would increase its crime-coefficient... that is to say, those which were ''not asymptomatic''. In other words, Sybil "fixed" itself to the point that it's now composed entirely or almost-entirely out of the brains of sociopaths, with all that this entails.

*** No one is forced to do everything the Sibyl System tells you to do. In the movie, Akane's friend talks about meeting her new fiance through the system, but they indicate that it's not mandatory. The CommuField celebrities are technically unemployed but they make a living by being popular. The Sibyl System wouldn't tell Spooky Boogie that she should be an anarchistic internet celebrity. That's something she wanted to do on her own.

*** Akane didn't threaten to kill Makishima, she only explained that having her Dominator locked into paralyzer mode would be the best way to make sure she could take him in alive.

*** The very first time we see Makashima his CC isn't zero so clearly asymptomatic people don't have to have a constant value of zero.

*** It might be able to do that after a criminally asymptomatic person has been identified, which given the secrecy surrounding them is not likely, but short of eyewitness observation (like Akane) or active surveillance of them committing an obvious crime (with an accompanying psycho pass raise around them) the system has no way of determining if they are asymptomatic or not. Both Makashima and Touma were both clever enough to avoid drawing attention to themselves for long periods of time.
