While awaiting Blu-ray and DVD for the latest series "PSYCHO-PASS 3 FIRST INSPECTOR" on Jul. 15, 2020, the interviews will be released 3 consecutive weeks.
Miyano Mamoru, who played Homura Shizuka, talked about his impression of playing a mysterious character and his opinion about the society controlled fully by "the Sibyl System" through the 3rd volume of the official interview.
<Full comments are listed below>
---Please tell us your impression about playing the character from the 3rd season "PSYCHO-PASS 3" (rephrased as "PP3") to "PSYCHO-PASS 3 FIRST INSPECTOR" (rephrased as "PP3FI").
Miyano Mamoru (rephrased as "Miyano"): I felt "PP3" became a hard-liner mystery because 60 minutes were given per episode. When I played Homura Shizuka, I asked the director (Shiotani Naoyoshi) about his impression of the character, like "why would he take such action?" or "what is his goal?". Every time I received an answer, I was always surprised by it.
There are many hidden features in "PP3", and I feel love for delicate designs. I wondered how many things does he want to do through the anime. I think the biggest appeals of this work are the abundant settings and neat structures.
---How did you understand Homura Shizuka?
Miyano: You cannot understand what is he thinking only by looking at his actions. Being mysterious is one of his appealing points.
But I thought that I cannot keep Homura as a mysterious character through my acting, therefore, I asked the director to update Homura's settings, and I always had Homura's believes and sense of justice in my mind. There are not many expressions of his belief and sense of justice in the anime, but I tried to voice him according his thoughts.
---So there was a movement in his feelings behind the scene.
Miyano: There is just one scene in "PP3FI" that Homura kindly talks to others, and how he talked was much different from how he usually behaves. It slightly shows his spirituality and belief toward his goals. It is the first moment when he showed his emotions openly to others. I am sure that scene makes him look mysterious.
---What did you think about the inspectors Shindou Arata and Kei Mikhail Ignatov, who oppose to the mysterious organization "Bifrost", where Homura belongs to?
Miyano: I believe that one of the appealing points of this series is the characteristics of two characters (Arata and Kei). I believe many of you had surprised from the appearances of a new type of partnership and new abilities, and there were changes to the flow of the story after the interactions between the characters were made. I like how the relationship between the two gradually changes and the story of each inspector gets depicted as well.
---In episode 8 of "PP3", Shizuka meets Kei and invites him as the 13th inspector. What impression did you get from Kei in episode 8?
Miyano: Kei is an honest man with a strong sense of justice and a clear weak point. (His wife, Maiko Maya Stronskaya) I think Kei was an easy man to handle for Shizuka. I think a tricky part of Shizuka became evident with it.
---At the same time, Shizuka confronts "Bifrost"'s congressman,
Shirogane Haruki and Saionji Eiko in "PP3" and "PP3FI". How did he understand the environment of "Bifrost"?
Miyano: I was stunned when I talked to the congressmen in "Bifrost". I did not want to lose to them (Shirogane and Saionji). I always rely on the actors playing them (Shirogane is played by Naka Hiroshi and Saionji is played by Tanaka Atsuko), since they are more experienced than I am, but I feel like confronting them as Shizuka. I exchanged words carefully while being nervous.
---The secret of "Bifrost" is revealed n "PP3FI". What's your thought on the society controlled by "Sibyl System"?
Miyano: I know, I know that "Sibyl System" is right...but is it acceptable? I think the interesting point of this series is that you always have "but" in your mind. A decrease in the number of criminals can be expected (by arresting the possible future criminals), and the safety can be intensified.
I think having your career chosen is an efficient way of living your life, but following the right and efficient paths may not be the only interesting way. I think I am allowed to work in multiple fields because I had experienced many things in my life.
I believe having many experiences is the method to foster your life with more choices. For example, when choosing a career, I like to look for things which suit me well.
That is why the theme of "'Sybl System' and humans" is interesting. You never get any mistake when you rely fully on the system and there is a possibility of believing in the wrong form of justice. That is why system needs humans, and it is depicted in "PP3FI" as well.
---How do you want the fans to enjoy "PP3FI"?
Miyano: I think many fans so far thought that Shizuka is a quiet character, and I think many people also believed that he is the last enemy. How he behaves in episode 8 toward Kei is clearly hiding something. (laugh)
But if you take a look at "PP3FI", you will quickly realize that Shizuka is one of the main characters. I am relieved to hear that by knowing the story plot for "PP3FI". Please enjoy the progression by watching the series.

I'm nervous since this is my first performance of AD-LIVE, but it makes me happy to be on the same stage as MoriKubo-san! He always takes good care of me. I'll do my best!
I'm glad to be part of AD-LIVE again. It's a completely different concept from last time so I'm excited. Mystery solving? Not my thing. I'll get help from Nishiyama Koutarou. Please come to see our performance!
This will be my first time to join AD-LIVE! It's nice to be on stage with Tsuda-san. He has taken good care of me since my debut. I'm nervous, but I'll enjoy it too!
Hi, I'm Takagi Wataru. AD-LIVE? Yeah, it's fun! It's fun to watch, not perform. Who would want to be in such a tough... What? They want me to join? I sure will!
Hi, I'm Ono Kensho. Every time I'm in AD-LIVE, I have to think so hard, I lose all my energy, but I somehow come back to this stage. I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen on stage this year!
This project has a reputation for being very interesting. I'm going to hop on its reputations and lean on the experienced Kenhou. I'll enjoy it, and I hope you will too.
Thank you for letting me join AD-LIVE! I'm super nervous but I'm even more excited! Please enjoy the show!
I'll be joining again! That means I can feel that tension again! I'll do my best so I can enjoy my drink after the show!
I've been called "Mr. Senshuuraku" (Senshuuraku means the last of a performance), but this is the first time I won't be performing last. This will be my first AD-LIVE with a woman, and I'm looking forward to it!
I'm Hikasa Youko and I'll be joining AD-LIVE. This is my first time so I'm nervous and worried, but since I'll be going on stage with Asa-nii (Asanuma-san's nickname), who I've known for a fairly long time, I can give it my best shot without hesitation. I hope my performance will entertain you all.
I never know what will happen next. AD-LIVE is the same. I can't predict anything. I just want to deliver you the best enjoyment and excitement. Please enjoy!
It's been a while since my last AD-LIVE!! It hasn't hit me yet, but I know I'm going to be nervous as it gets close! I love my partner！ I hope the performance goes well!!
Toriumi has returned. Thank you for having me again. I will be pairing up with Yoshino-san, who I've known for a long time. I don't know what will happen, but I'm excited.
You never know until it's over.

【Yamadera Kouichi, playing the Cat Master】
Q1. Your thoughts when your appearance in the movie was decided
Before I knew the movie's story, I became happy to be able to participate in the movie, where Shida Mirai and Hanae Natsuuski play the main characters. Hanae-kun is the underclassman from the office I belong to and is so active that I even become jealous of his popularity. Shida-san is my favorite actress from "The Queen's Classroom", and I became even a bigger fan of her, witnessing her genius acting in this movie as well.
Q.2 About your character "the Cat Master"
He is mysterious, playing innocent, and evasive unique character. I had so much fun playing him.
Q.3 A message toward the fans and who will watch the movie
Changing feelings of the two characters, the ordinary scenes, and the mysterious world of cats...everything is neatly and delicately depicted in this wonderful movie. I want people from many generations, especially teens who often have many worries!
【Ogi Hiroaki, playing the homeroom teacher, Mr. Kusunoki】
Q1. Your thoughts when your appearance in the movie was decided
I don't know what the staff are thinking because they offered me to play this character. lol The last time I played the character was the movies from overseas, so the staff there was mostly from abroad. I was relaxed in the recordings because I had a translator by my side, but I got nervous in this movie's recordings because the staff was Japanese.
Q. 2 About your character "Mr. Kusunoki"
Actually, when I got an offer, I knew beforehand that the character was designed to imaging me. I only believed 50% of the story and participated in the recording, because the character Mr. Kusunoki had glasses on,a little old, looked fat, and it did look like me.
I played character naturally because the character actually looked like me. I still believe 50% of that story even after I finished recordings. lol
Q. A message toward fans and who will watch the movie
This is the movie that a family can watch together. Both adults and children can enjoy this movie, and I want everyone to watch this. I love works with family love, so I want the families to watch his as well. Also, I want the people who watch the movie to think that my character is a nice teacher. lol Like, "I want to have such a wonderful teacher like this!" lol It is long because this is the movie, but please refrain from using the smartphone in the movie theaters.
I often watch the movie from old times. I watch the movie every time I have free time, and the impressiveness I feel after I finished watching with harmony with music is irreplaceable. I often get charmed by movies that the story and the uniqueness of music fights.
The first word I received from the director was "do in a way you want". Yorushika is the band that has a theme when making music, and it was the middle of making a new album with a new concept when I received the offer. I was happy to hear such words and realized that I have to go out of the decided concept and do freely, not only making the music with a concept.
The theme song used in this movie output the uniqueness of Yorushika. I expected the song to shine by fighting with the creativity of the movie while creating harmony with it. I can't wait to see the movie at the theaters.
