On one hand, he was clearly about to pull the trigger before Akane paralyzed him. On the other, he mouthed something to Akane before he did (presumably "shoot me") and showed no signs of being angry with her the following episode, so it could go either way.

** Akane was seen as one right from the first episode, due to her character design being considered ugly and/or odd-looking compared to the other characters, and being seen as naive and incompetent. The first episode's InfoDump makes it seem like she signed up for a job she has no clue about (in fact, the episode makes a point of this; the cynical Enforcers claim that the academy's training is entirely useless).
** Ginoza in Season 1 is a polarizing character at first. His ByTheBookCop and {{Jerkass}} attitude towards Enforcers and being highly critical to Akane's decisions earned him several detractors. On the other hand, there are fans who felt that he made a point of criticizing Akane because he wants to make sure that she does not fall into the same path where Shinya and his father are currently are and that his attitude is a case of being a JerkassWoobie. [[spoiler:After his father sacrificed his life to save which resulted to his demotion to an Enforcer, the fanbase began to like him by the time he returns in Season 2]].
** HistoryRepeats with the second season's beginning, with viewers hating Mika Shimotsuki for her abrasive, dismissive attitude toward the Enforcers and acting like a KnowNothingKnowItAll in front of Akane. Some fans started warming up towards her after her AlasPoorScrappy moment, while others [[TakeThatScrappy were satisfied by her situation]]. In the movie, she's given a more stable personality which some viewers find it an improvement fulfilling her role as Akane's opposite but she still earn some detractors, particularly for having the balls to trash-talk her to her face. Though her personality can be a case of DependingOnTheWriter as some viewers think that Mika could have been more likable in Season 2 if she's not a whiner.
** Season 2's BigBad, Kirito Kamui, is considered by several viewers as boring regardless that he pulled a XanatosGambit in the first half. Unlike Shogo Makishima who has a [[BadassBookworm very]] [[TheSociopath interesting]] [[TheUbermensch characterization]] which made him a DracoInLeatherPants, Kamui doesn't seem to earn his yet. When his DarkAndTroubledPast is revealed, it's still considered to be ridiculous and convoluted by many because it is a combination of MST3KMantra and ArtisticLicenseMedicine.

** Akane's actions in Episode 11. Half of the fan base [[spoiler: sympathizes with Akane. Saying that her breakdown and inability to rescue Yuki from Makishima's clutches was justified. Since Having the system that you had absolute faith in has let you down. (On top of having to go through that experience, killing Makishima would violate her ThouShaltNotKill philosophy, so on top of the system that forms the foundation of the society she grew up in clearly failing, she was dealing with a test of a deeply held belief.)]] The other half of the fan base deeply judges her for it, saying that [[spoiler:Akane had every reason to kill Makishima as she could've easily saved Yuki a complete innocent in the situation as (Makishima even tossed a loaded gun at her so she could do so), but couldn't because she was foolish and naive enough to be dependent on the Sibyl system]].
** The anime's intentionally ambiguous ending left many to argue whether it was a DownerEnding, a BittersweetEnding or a EsotericHappyEnding. On the other hand, the novels make it more of a Downer Ending while the audio drama makes it look like BittersweetEnding. The confirmation of a second season & a movie seems to have reunited the base for the moment.

** [[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]]"!

** [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Shogo Makishima]] is the darkly charismatic BigBad of the series. A SerialKiller who embraces his dark nature, Makishima seeks out those with the potential to be killers and pushes them into living out their darkest fantasies so he may enjoy seeing the "true state " of humanity. If he ever grows bored with this, he simply has them eliminated. Makishima has no issues getting his own hands dirty, and [[SlashedThroat slits the throat of an innocent girl]] in front of her friend out of disgust to her devotion to Japan's SIBYL system and her surprise that Makishima [[PureIsNotGood registers no negativity on its scale]]. Seeking to plunge Japan into anarchy, Makishima attempts to sabotage Japan's food supply and forms a twisted attachment to [[AntiHero Shinya]], unable to believe Shinya can go on without him when Makishima is gone.
** [[TeensAreMonsters Rikako Oryo]] is a PsychoLesbian and one of Shogo Makishima's side projects. An [[DissonantSerenity always placid]], [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette pale, dark haired girl]] who [[WickedCultured relishes Shakespeare's plays when they depict human cruelty and suffering]], Rikako has an obsession with [[MadArtist creating art]], targeting her fellow female students and [[SerialKiller murdering them]]. In order to mimic her father's artworks, which Rikako enjoyed even if she had nothing but contempt for the man himself, Rikako dissects the girls and arranges the corpses into scenes to mirror the portraits. With no feeling but to savor her art as much as possible and create a countless number of masterpieces, Rikako is among the worst of Makishima's pupils.
** [[WickedCultured Toyohisa Senguji]] is another of Makishima's associates. An old man who has converted most of his body to {{cyb|org}}ernetics to achieve immortality, Senguji has found himself experiencing incredible boredom. To alleviate it, he's turned to being a unique type of SerialKiller: the kind that [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame hunts human beings]]. Senguji enjoys releasing his prey into the [[AbsurdlySpaciousSewer large sewers underneath the city]] and hunting them down while dressed as a Victorian hunter, along with his cybernetic robotic dogs which he uses to savage his prey before he executes them. Senguji's only passion is hunting people like this, and he has wracked up dozens of victims. When done, he harvests the bodies to make [[CreepySouvenir tools out of their bones]]. With [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney his immense wealth]] keeping him out of reach of the law, Senguji cares only about exciting himself by playing his twisted game.
* ContestedSequel: Season 2. Some fans dislike it because [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight Urobuchi is not writing it]], the antagonist is boring, Kogami is absent, many people randomly die during the first half of the show, the lack of social commentary and less screentime for the old characters, most especially Ginoza and Yayoi. Many detractors have also pointed that quite a few plot points in Season 2 are suspiciously similar to plot points from Season 1, some even accusing the season of frequently dipping into RecycledScript territory. Others like it because of Akane's CharacterDevelopment, the antagonist is much more dangerous than Makishima and it still captures the essence of the show.
** Reaction to Season 2 can best be summarized as follows: there are those who consider it an absolute disgrace, those who find it SoOkayItsAverage (which seems to be the majority opinion), those who think it's good but [[ToughActToFollow just can't live up to the first season]], and lastly, there is a small minority that actually considers it [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome better than Season 1]] due to the larger focus on [[ActionizedSequel action]] and strong showcasing of Akane's [[GuileHero deductive abilities]].

** Yayoi does not undergo any important event or do anything of importance for the entire series. Some viewers were bothered by how she appeared to be there just for the [[HoYay Les Yay]]. It's really telling that if she had never existed, the plot would not have been affected in the slightest. She was the only Enforcer to get a full-fledged [[ADayInTheLimelight flashback episode]], and even that didn't tell us much about her. Her storyline regarding her connection to Rina became an AbortedArc when Season 2 came and probably will not be revisited again in the movie. What's worse is that she only had one line in the movie.
** Choe Guseong. Although he was important plot-wise, he never got any CharacterDevelopment or had his motives explained. Especially disappointing because Korean characters are so uncommon in anime. And in the context of this show, doubly disappointing because he was the only foreign character, full stop: it would have been interesting if he had provided some context on how other countries view Japan's Sibyl System.
*** His character gets developed in the novel version but considering what it says about him, it was censored due to what happens to his country is close to what happened in real life.
** Shusei Kagari only gets the focus in about two scenes, one where he explains he was declared a latent criminal at age 5 and says he hates the Sibyl System and Akane for talking about how choosing from all her own possibilities was a problem (though no further actions toward her reflect this) and another where he's [[spoiler: offered the chance to help bring down the Sibyl System and be free by one of the villains but offers a World of Cardboard speech instead saying he hates the the villains just as much and will fight them for the sake of his friends. He's then tragically killed off.]] He could have offered an interesting perspective on how those who grow up marginalised by the Sibyl System feel but he never really provides any insight into investigations. The ''New Edit'' does give him an additional scene where he muses on what life was like for him when he was living in a containment cell for years [[spoiler: right before the episode where he is killed off.]]
** This is how many felt about Ginoza [[spoiler:who is now an Enforcer]] in Season 2. The second season doesn't utilize much of him, particularly his contribution to Akane's case on Kamui, his feelings and viewpoints [[spoiler:on being an Enforcer]] or how he copes [[spoiler:with Aoyonagi's death]]. Since he is a major character in Season 1, viewers were very disappointed that he had [[DemotedToExtra less screentime]] in Season 2.
** Not quite the same case, but a similar case applies to [[TheScrappy Mika]]. Her background was that she moved on from the trauma of loosing a friend and became an inspector. She was handed over to Akane's care and introduced the same way as Akane from Season 1. (You'd expect Akane to be a good teacher, considering she's both rational and empathetic.) These backgrounds sets up some high expectations for the character.
** Risa Aoyanagi was an ActionGirl who was cynical when it came to her job (unlike Akane), but also [[SugarAndIcePersonality sensitive and caring whenever she was around those she cared about]]. She has great chemistry with Ginoza, she seemed as though she'd be more fleshed out and become a major character in Season 2, and she proves in Episode 4 that, despite being [[spoiler:nearly naked, handcuffed, and ''thrown into a light fixture'']], [[DamselOutOfDistress she still manages to hold her own]].

With the exception of Mika being a YesMan to the system and being antagonistic to Akane along with the introduction of Hinakawa and Teppei, many people treated Season 2 non-canon.

* ContestedSequel: Season 2. Some fans dislike it because [[OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight Urobuchi is not writing it]], the antagonist is boring, Kogami is absent, many people randomly die during the first half of the show, the lack of social commentary and less screentime for the old characters, most especially Ginoza and Yayoi. Others like it because of Akane's CharacterDevelopment, the antagonist is much more dangerous than Makishima and it still captures the essence of the show.
