The first volume Blu-ray and DVD for the anime Psycho-Pass went on sale on Dec. 21, 2012. On Jan. 27, an event to commemorate the release was held in the Ikebukuro Animate store. At the event, three voice actors from the series, Tomokazu Seki (Kogami Shinya), Kana Hanazawa (Tsunemori Akane), and Takahiro Sakurai (Makishima Shogo), talked candidly about their characters, their impressions of the world of Psycho-Pass, the recording process, and more.
Three members of the cast appeared on stage to the applause of the many fans in attendance. The excitement of the crowd rose early on when Seki appeared on stage wearing the same jacket that the character Kogami wears in the anime.
Seki talked about what the audition for the role was like. He said that very little was revealed to him at the time. He wasn’t shown any illustrations of Kogami nor any background information on the scene he was to perform. All he was given was his lines for the scene. When asked if other cast members had a similar experience, Hanazawa explained, “There was an illustration for my character. Wasn’t there one for Kogami too?” Fans were shocked when Sakurai confessed that he too had auditioned for the role of Kogami. To which Seki divulged, “Everyone auditions for multiple roles.”
Regarding the creation of the world of Psycho-Pass, Hanazawa offered her point of view, saying, “There are so many convenient inventions like being able to change clothes in an instant with the use of a hologram or being able to eat exactly what you want when you want.” Sakurai jokingly confessed, “If I were in that world, I would commit a minor offense and be apprehended right away.” He went on to say, “It’s not like I would actually commit a crime, but people are arrested due to their Crime Coefficient. I would definitely be arrested.” Seki also jumped into the conversation, saying, “Even if things don’t end up like the world of Psycho-Pass, you can still use the internet to find out the likelihood of someone committing a crime. Furthermore, in the words of Makishima, ‘Criminality is closely tied to how we think and comprehend it. In this sense, the potentiality for anyone to become a criminal is high,’” to which both Hanazawa and Sakurai firmly agreed.
