Instead of trolling us with what the Sibyl System really is, they finally laid it out: The Grand Design that took place right under humanity’s noses. So I guess it turned out to be similar with the matrix after all. Well, for those who have watched the movie, it was speculated that the machine empire couldn’t possibly have understood the faculties of human emotion unless they have willing human “allies” (take not: brains) that does the emotional processing for them. In Psycho-Pass’ case, only a human could judge a fellow human being.
The righteous will slay the wicked. Individuals who turn out to be criminally asymptomatic do have lofty egos. Makishima has it and it looks like Touma Kouzaburou share the same trait of being an ass. Their difference, one thinks too highly of himself, the other is just an ass.
Makishima Shougo is an asshole, the Devil’s Advocate. He enjoys living his life as an asshole who fucks people’s lives and he does so while eating popcorn on a front row seat. At first, I thought he’s the kind who’d have a god complex of sorts. Who plans on being the shepherd destined to guide the flock.
Well fuck that thought! Makishima may be doing the crazy shit for the wrong reasons but at least he’s happy with it. He doesn’t pretend to be just a bystander who indulges in people’s suffering. He lends them a hand and sends them to hell and he doesn’t blame anyone for it. He admits his crimes while bragging his immunity to the nonsense known as Sibyl. Not only that, he also mocks anyone who can’t even get on his level… HOW FUCKINGLY AND ANNOYINGLY COOL IS THAT?!
Makishima aside, I have to admit that I am pissed with how they decided to treat Kagari’s demise. Sure it was understandable but from the viewer’s perspective who saw what happened to him, IT’S FUCKING FRUSTRATING!! Well, history is decided by the winners but maaaaaaaan, Kagari didn’t have to suffer such shame. That man never ran away. He stood his ground and died nobly! FUCK! FUCK YOU SIBYL!!!
