Psycho-Pass has again brought out a fresh PV – merely annexing all the strips of preview clips before it, and adding some several seconds which reveal additional staff, as well as more of the protagonist and antagonist.
Beyond certain roles, such as director, the staff isn’t much worth looking out for – a main purpose of knowing the staff beforehand is to assess the potential of success, although knowledge of the studio alone is usually solid and sufficient. In the case of this series, the studio is “Production IG” – meaning if the mastermind who created many critically acclaimed works, Urobuchi Gen, was not involved, this series would have immediately been tossed in a bin.
Yet indeed, Urobuchi’s involvement is enough to incite a prevalent uncertainty – the teaming of a man recognized for some of the top creations ever made, alongside a studio recognized for the absolute worst atrocity, merely halts any further feelings.
In which case, the details to appreciate of this PV split into two sectors – the first being the more comprehensive visuals of the protagonist and antagonist which gradually pan out to an earthquake effect and some heavy music, and the second being the music itself. The visuals are more self-explanatory – although the particularly engaging aspect is the whole style. The aesthetics pack their own personality, and the shaking effect contributes to the mood – as does the emotionally ignited rock music.
Essentially, this series is building an individualistic atmosphere through its assembly of defined, albeit consistent traits, and that definitely holds substantial value for any series if utilized well – captivation can be on a whole separate scale if this opportunity doesn’t simply amount to failure.
September has nearly come to an end – and with this being the last of the content add-on clips, as implied by the absence of another date to await at the end of the video, it means the path from here will hold another PV entirely, or finally, the much-awaited series debut in October.
