Psycho Pass Season 2 broke my poor little heart ...

After Psycho Pass Season 2 was announced, i like others was quite excited about the thought of another adventure in this cyberpunk world Gen Urobuchi created. In retrospect i should have been more worried that Tow Ubukata was the dude chosen to handle this season while Urobuchi worked on the movie. Ubukatas track record when it comes to anime writing isn't the best but then again neither is Urobuchi's since the nigga did write that clusterfuck, Blassreiter. More thoughts after the jump along with spoilers.

Top 10 Favourite Cuts (Animated Sequences) of 2014

Well that certainly quite a year for anime. It has to have been one of the better years in recent memory. There were lots of great shows on and lots of great animators doing some of their best work. We saw Studio Mir put out their most work in a single year, MOI Animation produce 2 good looking DC animated movies, Space Dandy be a thing, The Boondocks go down in flames, Black Dynamite return in spectacular fashion and lots more. There was so much good work produced this year that it was incredibly hard to choose what to include in this list. Now like last year, the 3 simple rules i set for myself are as follows:
  • I have to have watched the show (no just seeing a cool clip on sakugabooru, i have to have watched a good amount of the thing).
  • The show must have aired this year (only episodes of a continuing show that aired this year count).
  • One sequence per show.
Warning before we continue, there will be spoilers for many shows including but not limited to Korra, Space Dandy, Hunter X Hunter, Noragami, Naruto Shippuden and more. Now without further adieu.
