Success is apparently just inevitable when Urobuchi Gen is involved – Psycho-Pass has brought out a PV boasting actual cuts from the animation, and one is left feeling as if a blitzkrieg of spectacular is about to assault.
Music, much like with the original preview clip, is of a constantly building adrenaline pump regardless if the sounds have acoustic origins, or computerized birthplaces. The vibrations of sound start driving one’s senses – and then the panning camera, which presents an exhilarating overview of a nighttime cityscape full of life, begins to instantly immerse one into the post-modern realm of Psycho-Pass.
This series has a setting similar to Ghost in The Shell in the dark city vibe – yet the single reason that’s worth pointing out is for one to more easily recognize that the metropolitan isn’t as immensely threshed out in detail as was the case in Ghost in The Shell. And this isn’t a flaw, nor a complaint, it’s merely a style of preference notable in Psycho-Pass – thereby subsequently worth recognition as it could very well have meaning later on, for better or worse.
Back to the video, successive shuffling of scenes follow thereafter – the cute yet readily inclined to engage the worst, Akane, looks to be a newbie on the law enforcement team in the process of awakening to the sickening actuality of her surrounding climate. Different aspects of this city, meaning characters, criminals, and areas alike, continue to be given a flash of emphasis as if serving to lead up into the kind of place which both ourselves, as well as the adorable bishoujo detective girl, have now entered.
A bit beyond, the video goes into hyper-acceleration – and indeed, the hype starts expanding at tenfold the rate. Strips of action are scattered throughout the closing half of the clip – and the animation is looking empowered with elaborate movement, as well as meaningful outcomes alike.
Production IG’s main point of incapability has been story – yet in the case of Psycho-Pass, Gen Urobuchi has that covered. And aside from that, what other concerns could there possibly be? The character designs of Psycho-Pass are already established as exquisite – and the aesthetics overall are definitely major league. The whole concept of the series is appealing already – and essentially, everything is laid out. It could not get simpler than this for Production IG – they have all which they require to make an unparalleled series, now they merely need to deliver it.
