Episode 288 - Dead to the World, chapters 1-9

Episode 288: Dead to the World, chapters 1-9

In the Future Tokyo criminal justice system, the people are protected by two separate and equal groups. The Enforcers who apprehend the criminals, and the unknowable machine superintelligence that pronounces them guilty. These are their stories.


In a world where control and the conflict of individual free will versus the good of society of a whole is a major theme, it’s clear that the best sort of character to explore these ideas is a super-special snowflake loligoth who the entire cast bends over backwards to accommodate. Enter Mikazuki Satsuki, she of the gold-silver eyes, skater dress, elaborately described bedroom and a crime coefficient that suggests that at any moment she could engage in acts of genocide or, at the very least, ruin Christmas. But when the Future Police are confronted with a mystery that, ooh, a five year old could have solved in minutes, she is indispensible to not only screwing up the whole situation and making it worse, but for being congratulated and rewarded for it afterwards. That’s right, It’s a law enforcement vacuum, where the law enforcement are the central cast!
