Just like with his Psycho-Pass 2 co-writer, Ubukata Tow writes stories with morally nuanced and complex themes, choosing to dive into the uncomfortable in spite of seething western pansies getting their panties in a twist on Twitter. I hope he keeps up his work for Psycho-Pass. The way he expands on the worldbuilding and social issues presented is incredibly appreciated.
