A stack of Psycho-Pass key visuals concentrated around the protagonist and heroine exhibit many a detail which surprisingly manage to leave one admiring the two leading characters of this series quite well already.
Looking first at our leading male, his collective of poses are quite intriguing in how they emanate a clear sense of motivation and confidence – legs spread, arms out, and posture appropriately up-straight. His ensemble is also a point of charm – a sharp dresser certainly gains a place in one’s heart with ease, especially when it comes to anime, as usually characters instead wear the heavily abused costume of seifuku.
This stylish character’s sense of fashion alone gives him an aura quite renowned and contrasting of what surrounds it – and in conjunction with his posing and mannerisms, he further begins to emanate an empowered appearance. Now also note that his shirt’s top button is open – a facet meaningful in that it subsequently allows the collar to extend outward more, contributing to a loose vibe, or in this specific case, a rebellious one even.
One can see dark impacting shadows littered throughout his outfit from top to bottom, and one can also notice how the outfit is a bit relaxed in size – both details which make for a grunge feel, and simultaneously give off that distinctive anarchy which seems to be consistent throughout Psycho-Pass. Knowing all of that, the implications of the far left illustration of our leading male, the one in which he hasn’t a jacket, could not be any more fitting.
With such a stance, it looks as if he’s ready to fight – yet he hasn’t a weapon in hand. The mere thought of hardcore fist-fights in elegant business-wear is enough to have one fidgeting in anxiety for this series – however, it shouldn’t be overlooked that such is simply a speculative possibility.
Onto the heroine, we’ve seen little more than her visage of indifference thus far – being exposed to her smiling face however proves equivalent to stepping outside and being met with a gleaming sun in paradise, her cheerful expression is quite heavenly indeed, and captivating with much ease. Meanwhile, the expression just slightly up and to the left, the one in which she clenches her teeth, is quite amusing – yet the supreme of these few is perhaps seen at the top of the group, as for some reason, her slightly troubled state, with hair ruffled around, looks hilariously cute.
It’s like some kind of phenomenon, a series has come with characters who are actually likable from the start – and not for reasons of oppai cup sizes or the likes.
