Summary: "A world where humans' state of mind and the tendency of their personalities can be quantified. While all sorts of inclinations are recorded and policed, these measured numbers are used to judge people's souls are commonly called… Psycho-Pass." Such is the world in which Akane Tsunemori, one of the top graduates of her school, lives. "That which needs to be done is carried out by those capable. Such is the grace bestowed upon mankind by the Sybil System" is the self-proclaimed mission of the "mechanical" system which governs the people and determines their Psycho-Pass. Tsunemori has scored one of the highest grades possible as an overall score, and so is able to pick almost any job she wants. Since the job with the highest required score is the Public Safety Bureau, she chooses it and is immediately thrown into a series of police cases full of suspense and action, and a midst it all learns that the world around her isn't really as perfect and just as it seems. With the help of her fellow inspectors, Ginoza and Shion, along with latent criminals who used to be inspectors such as Kogami, Kagari and Masaoka, she works to take down cases that at first seem individual but are all soon revealed to be connected. Violence: A lot of people think that anime is a show made for kids, just like many cartoons. While that may be true in some cases, please don't listen to them in this circumstance, because Psycho-Pass is one of the most violent and disturbing shows I have ever seen.
Though the first episode is much the most violent, it is filled with gunfights and staking out a criminal in an old building, who is keeping a young woman as hostage and constantly holding a knife to her throat. By the end of the episode, a person is shot by a special bullet and the person explodes (on-screen; blood, skeleton, and all) and a woman purposely drenches herself in gasoline and nearly sets herself on fire. This is, in reality, made less disturbing since it's an animation instead of live action, but that doesn't negate the entirety by any means as it's still incredibly violent. There are several other occasions throughout the show when people's limbs are crushed by falling metal boxes, legs are torn off by mechanical dogs, and faces are imploded by shotguns at disturbingly close range. There is a very good reason this anime is rated TV-MA, and the violence/gore is at least 75% of it. Cussing: Since Psycho-Pass is an anime, it is translated from its original Japanese to English. As you probably know, the Japanese are culturally more lax about what words and jokes are used than most English-speaking peoples. A good percentage of these words are subliminal, however, and often won't be caught unless you're watching with subtitles.
There is one lady who smokes almost nonstop while in her office.
Drugs: Almost none (almost surprisingly) except in a few instances. Two or three people take pills for medical reasons, and there is also a chemical in one of the cases the inspectors have to solve which you soak a human body in to solidify it into a statue, though no one ingests this. There is one lady who smokes almost nonstop while in her office. Spirituality: The Cybil System is to some and itself sometimes implied or considered to be like a god. Other than that, no religion is mentioned. Adult Material: There is one scene near the end of the show with two naked women (though nothing inappropriate happens, they're just talking), but none of their private areas are shown. The aforementioned people who are turned to stone by chemicals are displayed nude as statues in public parks, and hints of their private parts are shown though not the entirety of them. The most inappropriate content in probably the entire show also shows up in the first episode, when the woman whom is being held hostage by the criminal in the building is raped by him. While it doesn't actually show anything but the back of his head and jacket, a very strong implication is made (this only serves to show how bad their world can be, however. My Rating: I realize that in almost the entire review, I've been saying all that's wrong and inappropriate with the show. However, I haven't had much time to say how great of a show it was. I won't spend nearly as much time talking about it as I did the bad stuff, but the story line of Psycho-Pass was one of the most amazing, fantasies and plot-twist filled story lines I have ever watched. If you/your child are mature enough to know that the entire thing is fake and none of the violence should be created in real life, I would definitely recommend it. I hope the majority of this review hasn't turned you too far away from Psycho-Pass, because it really is very much worth watching.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He has also been shown to date with normal female cat.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.
Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time.

Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
39;s gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese).
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them.Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
