I remember season two of Psycho-Pass being wild and far-fetched, but was it bad? I'm a sucker for social-technological commentary, so I remember liking it.

I think it was very bad in context of what Psycho-Pass is. All by itself without a legacy it could've been fine. Mostly.

It's the same as GitS:ARISE I think; fair enough as its own original thing, utterly absurd in the context of its own franchise. And interestingly enough written by the same bloke as PP2 Mother-Issue Boogaloo. ARISE can be defended as a reboot that had leeway to reimagine elements of its concept but Psycho-Pass 2 is in direct continuity.

To my knowledge though both did fine in Japan.

Well while Psycho Pass was inspired by some live action films the anime was originally written by the beloved Gen Urobuchi. Which the show lost come season 2. So it comes to no surprise for me that people didn't like it and has been my biggest hangup for jumping on it. I didn't realize it was also the guy that was writing the Arise series though. That's hilarious... and a bit sad. He hasn't had a good record for continuing IPs. At least so by fan reaction.

Which kind of made the letdowns bigger. The author of Mardock Scramble doing a whole season of Psycho-Pass AND an origins reboot of Ghost in the Shell? That sounded like a great idea. And did turn out great for many people.

Wasn't what I was expecting from that combination though.

Psycho-Pass season 2 suffered from a bland plot, weak villains, a lack of effort to go over the themes that made season 1 so thrilling, and the inclusion of Mika who was annoying and who only had one moment that I can remember enjoying.



On it's own it's decent at best, but the fact that it's part of the same series as season 1 makes it more disappointing. No Kogami is also a downside. Akane and Ginoza were the only 2 characters carrying the season for me. Kamui started off as a cheap Makishima copycat before they tried doing something different with him and just made the mystery about him really dumb.

Akane's development as a character is such a high point for Psycho-Pass. When she went toe-to-toe with Kogami in the movie it was twice as thrilling just because of how much growth it showed on her part.

Rereading some chapters of Tsugumomo, if they can eke out a third season it's going to be really cool.

I recently started looking through The Idolmaster anime we've got floating around, and while I'm enjoying the characters a lot there's so many of them that it's kind of hard to get particularly deep into any of them in particular as people. Also checked out Shield Hero, and it's pretty great.

With all these 90s reboots and remakes floating around if someone could sell their soul to get a series of The Weathering Continent that'd be excellent. I mean if Spriggan is getting a new anime anything seems possible really.

Adventurers wandering the ruins and wastelands of Atlantis? Sounds cool. Anything in particular you'd call the draw?

It's just got a cleansing old school fantasy vibe where someone in the determination of youth decides there's got to be a better answer out there than this, and goes out to find it; and you get to see how the journey tests and shapes their resolve, and how they handle the things in life they can't change while not giving up on the things they maybe can.

What we've got now is a solid 60-minute movie that's by far my favorite fantasy anime I think besides Berserk. And they did right by it by adapting a self-contained story that clues you into the bigger picture but isn't rushed or condensed. There are a bunch of books for it, pretty sure they were fishing for a series in the wake of Record of Lodoss War.

It didn't pull through then, but I'd still like to see it now. Basically it's from the same era as Arslan, but I like it better.



The movie is also just a really well-presented take on its central theme, where it feels like someone had actual thoughts on the matter and didn't just point you at a big bad to beat. So I'd like to see more of the author's work adapted if there's a chance that more of it has that same feeling of mindfulness about traversing things that can challenge us.
