Inspired by the work of American sci-fi author Phillip K. Dick and Western philosophy, Psycho-Pass envisions a future Japan where justice is enforced by an advanced technology known as the Sibyl System. Each person is scanned for his/her potential to do crime in an assessment known as a Psycho-Pass which measures one’s Crime Coefficient. If your Crime Coefficient is too high, lethal force is authorized by the Sibyl System which results in immediate judgment.
