I've heard dreadful things about Season 2, so I chose to stop at the end of Season 1. The story in the first season is complete, and full of plot twists (both original and old-fashioned sci-fi in style) that are well executed and beautifully animated. In brief, a future Japan has decided to repose societal confidence in a new justice system that began as a simple job assignment computer program. Under SIBYL, people's moods are monitored by the omnipresent robots for swings towards negativity; those who go too far are deemed to have the mens rea for crime, and are arrested and put into facilities before they commit any crimes. Those who have the aptitude amongst these pre-criminals are offered a job that's a mix of traditional detective and SWAT team - ordinary people can't hunt down criminals without gaining too much insight into the criminal mind, and thereby "darkening their (mood) hue".

It's not a spoiler to say that the system is not all that it appears to be. Nevertheless, I urge you to explore this dystopia on your own, without looking for reviews in advance. The best part of this show was grappling, as a viewer, with the philosophic questions this society creates.

Clarifying my rating system:

1-6: If I started watching, I stopped once it clearly fell below 7. I would never watch or recommend.

7: I watched at least part of it, and may have stopped due to not liking the plot twists, character derailment, etc. I may have watched the whole show, but recognize deal-breaker tropes in it, and I'm unlikely to rewatch; thus, huge caveats to any recommendation.

8: Not my thing, but I respect it. Generally, I didn't like it enough to rewatch it, but also didn't see huge problems in the plot, characterizations, etc. and thought it was worth finishing. I'd consider it harmless to view; it's possible that over time I would upgrade it to a 9 if I liked it more on reflection. I would recommend it to the right audience.

9: I enjoyed very much. It may have had one or two issues, but not enough to diminish enjoyment. It's possible that over time I would downgrade it to an 8 (changing tastes) or upgrade to a 10 (realize it's never left my mind). I'm likely to rewatch, and might decide to buy the DVDs. I'd recommend it to most audiences.

10: Virtually flawless. I'd definitely rewatch, and am likely to buy DVDs. I would shill to anyone.
