Here’s all the interviews from the Official Profiling 2
book. (Well, except for the ones with Ling Toshite Shigure, Chelly from EGOIST,
and Yugo Kanno. Aka the ones in charge of the music. Sorry about that.) They
include the following:
Cast – Hanazawa Kana (Akane), Seki Tomokazu (Kougami)
Staff – original story concept & screenplay – Urobuchi Gen; 2nd season structure – Ubukata Tow
Staff – Director – Shiotani Naoyoshi
Under the cut are a lot of words (almost 13k), but here are the
Like I theorized way back, Psycho-Pass is not a series with a fixed start-end plot, but a sandbox where only certain elements of the world and certain characters are set in stone. Thus new writers, etc can come in and play with the pieces every single time. Even the staff’s all “there are so many side stories and spinoffs that we’ll leave it up to you to figure out canon” from them.
The movie was thought up, planned, and put into production before they ever considered season two. I repeat, the movie was always the priority, and the gears started moving right when they finished s1.
Apocalypse Now was a huge inspiration for the movie.
Everyone (cast, staff) agrees that if a certain character had been there in s2, the case would have been wrapped up right away and there would have been no s2. (So unbelievably true, but grrrrrr)
Shimotsuki Mika is beloved by the staff for the exact same reason that fans dislike her (“she’s what Sibyl thinks a true Inspector is”).
Hinakawa was always made to be a foil to other characters (poor boy).
If you didn’t know, many of the important staff figures spent a lot of their careers on live action, crime series, etc, and really love Western scifi/crime/etc media, which is one of the reasons why PP feels so different from a typical anime you see nowadays.
The recording cast left an empty chair in the studio for you know who during s2, and HanaKana basically said at one point, “Please come back already!”
And if nothing else, read the two cast interviews!
Spoilers for s2 and the movie, obviously, under the cut.
Here on this blog, management believes in certain things, which are openly stated on this blog, but for the purposes of this PSA, let us concentrate on this…guiding principle, so to speak.
It is this -
Carol is beholden to no other man, woman, or character, and it’s entirely Carol’s own business who she wants to sleep with, when, how, and why, how many times, and if she sleeps with multiple people (at once or spread out over time) and no one gets to dictate that for her or to her. Or call her names for those choices. She answers to no one.
That being said, management wants you know that there will be content pertaining to Carol’s relationships with other people on this blog. Management tags everything. Tags you may want to blacklist include: “tobol,” “tobin x carol,” “tobin kiss,” “tobin twd,” “carzekiel,”and “otp: apocalypse royalty.”
Management is happy to tag something else; just send an ask.
That is all.
If you should happen to disagree with this statement, sentiment, or feel that your dash would be much happier without this kind of content, you may freely unfollow me, no hard feelings or questions asked.
*petting a kitty* Socks, you are adorable. Yes you are.
Ha. And here I thought you were all about the tough guy stuff. Yer a softy.
I do not see how appreciating the companionship of a pet makes me a "softy". Especially one such as this *holds up the kitty*
Perhaps you are forgetful?
I-I'm not tryin ta pick a fight.
Oh no. There will be no fight. I am not so insecure that I need to crush your skull between my thumb and index finger just to prove my strength. Now if you are done. Leave. Also don't talk to me or my baby ever again.
It’s 2023 in rural North Dakota, and the world has just ended. Twenty-eight individuals, friends and family and strangers alike, managed to survive. But with in-fighting and a constant struggle to stay safe and search for food, the order that they had scrounged together in the first thirty-six hours is falling apart. Kara Choutaeu, with the help of her brother, Jackson, and her friend, Alex, take control of the group. But with danger around every turn and an abandoned world without laws, anything goes, and not everyone is happy that Kara is in charge.
To survive in a world where humans have become monsters, you need to be the strongest, the fastest, and the smartest. And you have to be willing to leave friends behind to die.
Marlene turned off the lamp of Charlotte’s bedside table and walked away from her room, not closing the door since she knew she didn’t like to sleep in the complete darkness. Her daughter was four years old now and there wasn’t a day that she didn’t ask for her father and there wasn’t a day in which Marlene wouldn’t cry about it when she finally fell asleep.
She and Evan had dated ever since she could remember and she was pretty sure that she had loved him from the very moment she laid eyes on him. Marlene and her friends were having dinner the night they met and he asked her to dance. He litteraly headed towards her table and ask her, right there, in front of all of her girl friends. She blushed a little but accepted. By the end of the night he had her address and the promise of a date. It was probably love at first sight.
