well, fukami makoto was credited as a co-writer with Urobutcher for s1 and the movie and did not work on s2 but he's back for s3, so I have some hope that it'll be good lol

From the key visual it seems Mika will take the role of female mc. It's already a bad sign

Can I bother some JPN peeps out there? Can you tell me what song is this since I can't read a lick of kanjis. Thx.

On topic:

I can smell another PPASS flop on this one.

My thoughts exactly. Every time I'm hoping that Akane will be back as MC but I guess it's time to realize that will never happen. Besides I can't stand Mika.

Something tells me I'll score this lower than PP3. Where is akane? I demand an explanation, is she in Thailand, making out on a beach with Kougami? Damn! I really want to enjoy this.

I was hoping for them to do another one but we'll have to do with what've got.

All four LTS songs for psycho pass have been amazing. Other than the second season of high score girl, the new psycho pass op was the only thing I was looking forward to in the fall season. Sigh.

Does only watching Urobuchi composed seasons make me edgy or is it the other way around? Any Psychopass is better than the garbage from the rest of the year.

He still is an exceptional and well-regarded sound director in the Japanese animation industry regardless whatever your perception of him is... I also really doubt you know more about sound directing than a professional that has worked as one in this industry for more than a decade to even question why he still has a job. So, just stop it…

Finally, he has been the sound director of this series since the very beginning. Are you even aware of that? or are you just one of those fools that speak before researching and looking at things? Honestly, I don’t care…
