Category Archives: Psycho Pass: Extended
I think that’s one of the few times where an anime has handled a somewhat sexual joke quite well.
I’m definitely going to review the second season of Psycho Pass that will soon air, I think (it’s airing in the upcoming Fall-season, right?). And so for that purpose I have been following this Psycho-Pass: Extended version. If you think about it, it’s an intriguing format. Rather than to deliver extra-content as a blu-ray-extra (or even DVD-extra), the series basically aired a second time but with new added scenes. That’s most certainly not something every series should do to promote its second season. I mean, first of all most second seasons nowadays are just a 2-cours-series that has been split in half. I mean, first of all, I’m really curious whether this second airing of Psycho Pass with additional scenes makes any money for the studio. I don’t see how it can. Only the real fans will watch it and those few who are curious. DVD/Blu-ray-sales won’t be really improved because whoever would have wanted that DVD/Blu-ray-set would’ve already bought it at that point. I can only imagine that Psycho Pass is considered a great success. One should note, though, that during Noitamina’s 2014 Noitamina line-up announcement two of Psycho-Pass’ characters ranked really high in the popularity-votes (source). So, I guess that a lot of people think that the second season will be a smash-hit due to the popularity of the second season.
