It seems as if the best course of action at this point is to accept Psycho-Pass for what it is rather than worry about what it isn't, especially as what it is is a pretty solid show all things considered.
Professor Saiga to the fold, because he represents an interesting outlet for ideas (and I love his gorgeous, "Falling Water" house). As he and the fugitive Kougami dine on fresh eggs, vegetables and (gasp!) real coffee, they discuss how 99% of the food in Japan comes from genetically modified "hyper-oats", grown completely without the benefit of human hands with the help of drones and benign viruses. The irony here is operating on several levels - it's not just about the food, but about the people of Japan, similarly isolated and vulnerable because of their homogeneity. If the hyper-oats make a convenient target for Makishima's final assault on Sibyl, they also make a convenient symbol for Gen's final attack (for this series) on Japanese society.
2chan-style boards that exist as a place for the discarded hipster detritus of the new Japan to vent their frustrations with Sibyl - their discussions taking place on foreign servers (an allusion to the likes of Iran and North Korea, no doubt) and so low-tech that they fly under Sibyl's radar. He’s a very entertaining character, and his discussions with Kougami have been some of the best moments in the series - I especially liked the moment when he encouraged Kougami to imagine Makishima sitting at the table with them. What Saiga does - and Kougami too, for that matter - amounts to magic, pretty much. It's deduction in service to plot, not real detective work - but it's undeniably fun to hear Saiga spouting Weber and Kou bouncing it back with threats of Bentham and Swift.
recruit her seems almost certain to be its fatal mistake, and it seems likely we'll see Akane GAR-moe moments in true Arthur/Saber style in the finale as she kicks Sibyl's ass. That's all well and good, but of more interest will be the confrontation between Makishima and Kougami - the real main characters - and the ultimate resolution between Gino and Masaoka. Though minor characters in the big picture (Masaoka especially is criminally underutilized) their relationship is the most interesting in the show in purely human terms. Gino has only become sympathetic himself as the depth of his frustration has become clear - he'll never be the man Kougami and Masaoka are, and he knows it. He lacks both their insight and their clarity of purpose (sweet irony, given how Sibyl views them) and is forever being "left behind" to use the words he uses himself this week. Masaoka clearly still loves his son and is trying to save him - and Akane too - but the only way he can see Gino saving himself is be recusing himself from events altogether. It's a sad thing that he has no faith in his son's ability to actually make a difference, but even sadder in that nothing we've seen from Gino would make us question that judgment. There are so many characters in the series that seem targeted for bad ends - especially in a Gen series - that it seems well within the realm of possibility that only Akane among the main cast will survive the carnage to come.
