Brace yourself for a hard boiled, sci-fi thriller from the creator of Madoka Magica and the studio that brought you Ghost in the Shell. Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to enough to make you guilty. Bad intentions can no longer be hidden, and the police know exactly which tainted minds are about to cross over to the wrong side of the law. The great equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the risk that a citizen will turn criminal. Cops work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all. Society is paralyzed by its deepest, darkest desires, and trial by jury has been replaced by the wrath of the Dominator. Welcome to the future. How guilty are you? Contains episodes 1-22. The Complete First Season.

Set in a near future metropolis where decisions on most facets of life are made by a super computer called Sybil (yeah, I know) this anime deals with the morale wranglings of the people who have to deal with the everyday decisions of the computer.
Its a premise that is well backed up by decent characters, the normal cops are backed up by enforcers who have been deemed 'latent criminals' and need looked after by the normal officers. This leads to some pretty interesting dilemmas and moral wrestling that is handled deftly by the writers of the series.
I was really drawn into this series by the lack of magic and telepathy. The hard element is neatly backed by the near god like powers of the computer.
The animation is very good and the weapon and designs of the computers and vehicles has that typical Japanese flair and edge which, lets be honest, just looks cool.
But, this is an anime with a difference, it tackles very weighty themes without resorting to cheap storylines or cop outs.
A very intriguing series that has hit the spot.
"Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty.

My one reservation would be the characterization of the rookie female character, which follows the wide eyed bubble gum image typically aimed at a whole different Anime audience. That said the voice of the character had an adult edge and the other female characters are better realized, as too were the male characters.. This is Anime in the spirit of 'Shell' with elements of 'Death Note' there too. eg its subtext on evil retribution and judgment .
This is the future as only Anime seem capable of depicting it, a future where technology, gadgets, bureaucracies, profiles and other autocratic systems are projected as far as they can be imagined, all underpined with elements of philosophy. Serious stuff thoughtfully explored with questions on how such a world might develop. Whilst in some ways it serves to erald the prospects of this technology, it doesn't just look at the best intentions for that technology, but instead looks with a mind to how the potential in that technology might be exploited, or worst, currupted.
This is the future now, a marrage of Scifi and Scifact eg our current 'precog' systems like CRUSH - Criminal Reduction Utilizing Statistical History, which i am sure Japan must now have a version of. This could also be seen as the domestic side of that world created in 'Ghost in the shell'.Read more ›
If you want and appreciate hard SF, this is for you.
Yes, its ambience and themes owe much to classic cyberpunk and Philip K Dick's novels - it even knowingly, with a wink, cites William Gibson's 'Neuromancer' and Dick's 'Do androids dream of electric sheep?' at one point. But it puts all these classic ideas in a blender and manages to come out with something new, twisty and exciting. Think of it as a natural successor and counterpart to the classic 'Ghost in the Shell' and you won't be too far out...
The animation is fluid and engaging, with mercifully restrained use of CGI. The characters are well fleshed out and interesting. The technological projection is well thought-out and wholly credible. And the genuine moral and ethical themes brought out in the mix are treated both seriously and fully. OK, there is some violence and gore; but this is not one for the kiddies anyway!
A fully realised future - without aliens, giant robots and constant explosions is refreshing enough in itself, but this anime one goes further and - like the best SF - manages to comment on the present and ask serious questions about law, order and morality.
In short, this is one of the finest animes I have seen in many years. It's just begging for a second series. Will freedom or order triumph in the end?
Still, my overall impression is very positive: this is a great series, well worth the time and money. In my humble opinion, it is also a very interesting introduction to the Japanese psyche, since the general message is that anything that threatens the stability of society, even for all the right reasons, is necessarily criminal in nature.
