** The entire premise of the series, to a tabletop RPG player:
-> [[{{TabletopGame/Paranoia}} The Sibyl System is your friend. The Sibyl System wants you to be happy. Happiness is mandatory. Failure to be sufficiently happy is treason. Treason is punishable by summary execution. Are you happy, Citizen?]]

* MemeticMutation:
** Tomatoes in the blender. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A really disturbing--or hilarious--usage of symbolism instead of actually showing us the disposal of a murder victim’s body[[/labelnote]]
** SPOOKY BOOGIE [[labelnote:Explanation]]The way the Japanese cast pronounced this name was either [[SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound awesome]] or [[MostAnnoyingSound terrible]].[[/labelnote]]
** 2Spooky4Boogie [[labelnote:Explanation]]A mashup of the first meme with [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/2spooky this one]].[[/labelnote]]
** Moe is banned, No Moe allowed, Anti-Moe, etc.[[labelnote:Explanation]]An interview with the staff behind the show revealed that the director (jokingly) banned the word “Moe” during the production, as a way of countering the Moe trend found in contemporary anime.[[/labelnote]]
** No moe they said. [[labelnote:Explanation]]Used ironically while referencing anything in the show that can be interpreted even vaguely cute, from the Uncanny Valley holograms to just about anything Akane does.[[/labelnote]]
** So who’s going to die first? [[labelnote:Explanation]] Gen Urobuchi isn’t [[FanNickname known]] as “[[KillEmAll Urobutcher]]” for nothing--people were placing their bets on who’s going to kick the bucket first even before the show aired![[/labelnote]]
** Psycho-Pizza. [[labelnote:Explanation]]http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/psycho-pizza[[/labelnote]]
** PLASTIC TAC TICS [[labelnote:Explanation]]Lyrics from the first opening theme, coupled with some Narm-tastic facial expressions in the animation sequence itself, that quickly reached memetic status in the fandom.[[/labelnote]]
** CAUSE I FEEEEEEEEEL [[labelnote:Explanation]]Lyrics from the second opening theme, which happens to be ''extremely'' [[EarWorm catchy]].[[/labelnote]]

*** HAPPY MEAL[[labelnote:Explanation]]A popular FilkSong variation of this song. With performances [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CD2oS4Y2zY here]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqlYarvMstU here]].[[/labelnote]]
** "We have detected that you are experiencing a great deal of stress." [[labelnote:Explanation (spoiler)]]One of the UncannyValley-faced police drones asks this to a woman who is literally being beaten to death on a crowded city street. No one comes to help her.[[/labelnote]]
** HYPER OATS [[labelnote:Explanation]]The constant mentioning of "hyper oats" in Episode 19, something completely ridiculous-sounding said in the most serious tone ever. It is usually matched with pictures of a smiling Kougami. http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/hyper-oats[[/labelnote]]
** [[WickedCultured Bitter Lit Major Shogo Makishima]] [[labelnote:Explanation]] Makishima's literary references grow increasing blatant with every episode, leading fans to joke that his bitterness against society comes from being an [[StarvingArtist unemployed English or Literature major]]. His attacking [[spoiler: Kouzaburo]] [[ThrowTheBookAtThem with a book]] in episode 17 didn't help.[[/labelnote]]
*** "[[FanNickname Hipster Makishima]]" for these same reasons--particularly after his speech about how physical novels are objectively better than e-books.
** KOUGAMI FUCKING WHERE?! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fandom has been on the edge of its seat wondering where the hell Kougami is since the second season started. They got their answer when the movie's trailer was released.[[/labelnote]]
** MUH SASAYAMA [[labelnote:Explanation]]Kougami is obsessed with hunting down Makishima because he orchestrated the death of one of his Enforcers, Sasayama, who he was apparently very close to. Cue shipping jokes.[[/labelnote]]
** Ginoza's a 1000% virgin! [[labelnote:Explanation]]Urobuchi once said that, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Ginoza is a 1000% virgin.]] The fandom never let it go.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: ''Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness'' is generally considered to be a good VisualNovel with an interesting story that runs as parallel to the anime. It helps that Creator/GenUrobuchi supervised it.

** Kirito Kamui in Season 2. In fact, he pulled a lot of XanatosGambit at the start of Season 2 [[spoiler:and outsmarted the goddamn Sibyl System to boot by forcing them to eliminate several of their defective brains]]. All of these could really put Makishima in second place of Magnificent Bastardy if many of those plans didn't verge on XanatosRoulette.

* JumpingTheShark: The end of ''Mandatory Happiness'' (or at least Takuma's route) has [[spoiler:Alpha decide to blow up a city that would cause the rest of the world to suffer a slow, agonizing death.]] This removes all tension from the plot because it's obvious what would happen, and because the plot point that there's a ''significant'' way to game the Sibyl System and any implications about the future of Japan's isolationist society was shoved aside and aren't mentioned again, even in the epilogue.

** [[Literature/MardockScramble Tow Ubukuta]], who is writing the series composition of Season 2 instead of GenUrobuchi (who would be supervising the script), made some viewers worried on that the style of the story would be different, particularly when Urobuchi amusingly quipped that "if people die in ''Psycho-Pass 2'', [[NotMeThisTime that's Ubukata's doing]]"! Some people noticed that Season 2 has more action and less social commentary than Season 1, and a lot of viewers wonder how this season will affect the movie given that there wasn't much impact [[spoiler:except for the revelation that being criminally asymptomatic is a non-permanent condition]]. With the movie released, many officially declared Season 2 as [[FanonDiscontinuity non-canon]] because majority of the subplots had little effect on the movie.
