[TRANSLATION] PSYCHO-PASS OFFICIAL PROFILING 2: 100 A&Q about Psycho-Pass universe 2

PP Staff answers 100 questions asked by fans

Here yougo, the last portion of the questions. I am terribly sorry as always for thedelay. But this time it’s actually not my fault. As I said on my twitter, myInternet connection died on me last night. >_______> The questions this time are about characters. Happy Easter everyone! ˆ____ˆ


Questions 001-050

Questions 051-100

051. Q: Ginoza-san seems to like addressing Akane as anata*. Is there a reason behind this?

A: To Ginoza, Akane is a person whom he can naturally address this way.  

052.Q: Having become an Enforcer, Ginoza-san started drinking alcohol. Hasn’t he thought about starting smoking?

A: He’s a non-smoker.

053. Q: In the first OFFICIAL PROFILING book it was stated that it had been 20 years since Ginoza-san had a girlfriend. Does this mean that he had one when he was 7?

A: We leave it up to your imagination. It’s something that only Ginoza himself knows.

054. Q: Ginoza-san’s favorite food is bread. What kind of bread does he like in particular?

A: Baguette.

055. Q: In the situation where any independent action by Enforcer is forbidden if there’s no Inspector nearby, how does Ginoza-san walk his beloved dog Dime?

A: He walks it in a walking machine, hidden behind a hologram.

Psycho-Pass Official Profiling 2: Interviews

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:

  • Staff – General Director – Motohiro Katsuyuki
  • Cast – Hanazawa Kana (Akane), Fujiwara Keiji (Tougane), Kimura Ryohei (Kamui)
  • 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 takeaways:

  • 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.

[TRANSLATION] PSYCHO-PASS OFFICIAL PROFILING 2: Kagari Shuusei

Profile: Kagari Shuusei ・縢 秀星 + Execution Record

I know Kagari’s profile was translated a long time ago, I just decided to translate it myself as well because it kinda felt incomplete without him and Masaoka so…  As they say, for the collection. XDD  Since there’s no new info, as a bonus, I added Kagari’s record from the Dominator shooting history section. It could serve as another evidence of his death.

[TRANSLATION] PSYCHO-PASS OFFICIAL PROFILING 2: 100 Q&A about Psycho-Pass universe

PP Staff answers 100 questions asked by fans

From December to February fans hadthe chance to ask PP staff questions about the universe, characters etc. bysubmitting them to PP official website. The 100 most interesting ones would bechosen and published in the profiling book. Here is half of them. This is 100% official. Most of the questions here are about the universe and latent criminals. Maybe one of your unasked questions has actually been answered. >3 If you have any questions concerning this, do not hesitate to ask. The next part will be up tomorrow because I thought 100 questions would be a bit too much.

Some answers are kind of meh… I mean, why would they choose the ones they were not gonna answer anyway? “It’s up to you what to think”, huh? Like why am I even asking you this then?!! Phh. Sorry, I absolutely needed to rant.


Questions 001-050

Questions 051-100

001. Q: Do natural disasters occur in the PSYCHO-PASS universe?

А: Yes, they do.

002. Q: Marriage partner selection is done by Sybil, but is it possible to marry someone else other than those recommended by Sybil?  

A: It is possible. However, as it would be equivalent to as if they were told that they wouldn’t be able to find happiness in marriage, ordinary citizens desiring optimum happiness, determined by hue match, tend not to ignore Sybil’s recommendations.

003. Q: In the world of PSYCHO-PASS Valentine’s Day has sunk into oblivion, but what about holidays like New Year’s Day and Christmas?

A: Seasonal festivities no longer exist as well. But there must be people out there who preserve these traditions on a case-by-case basis.

004. Q: Does space exploration still take place in the world of Sybil?

A: No. Japan is the only well-functioning country, and, as it pursues an isolationist policy, space exploration is no longer needed.

005. Q: What kind of sensations would touching a holo-outfit bring?

A: Since hologram is projected onto clothes, when someone comes in contact with it, they can feel the fabric of what a person is wearing underneath the holo. Holograms are not tangible by nature.

Profile: Sugo Teppei須郷 徹平 Codename Hound 3

I am aware that some profiles has already been translated, however I think I need to post mine as well because those are not at all complete, even though they are labeled as such, and contain translation errors. I’ve translated the profiles entirely, the only thing that’s been left out would be character descriptions,but we all know about them from the anime so…

Technically I’ve been translating the profiles of all the characters for the past few days.They are still in progress, 70-90% percent of the work is done though(depending on the character), so you can just drop in my askbox the name of theone you want to read first >3

This is the most complete profile of Yayoi.As I said before, I think it’s great to have all the info on a character in one place/post. That’s why I translated the profile from the profiling book 1 and combined it with the one from the book 2. Basically you have the info as of 2112 and 2116. I separated the data, of course. Why do that? Because there are three types of info: basic info or the info that remains unchanged, new info and updated info. I hope it’s convenient for you as well. I’m gonna organize the profiles of Akane, Gino, Shinya and Shion in the same way.
