The Psycho-Pass movie opened January 9th and word of mouth reviews have agitated ticket sales to shoot up like the Area Stress Level. High-class maid cafe Patisserie Swallowtail is feeding the hype with collaboration sweets and if the film is half as good as the desserts, we've got a major hit on our hands.
Before going to the cafe stop by the pop-up shop for a look at the cast of new and returning characters. Kogami looks adorable as a third world freedom fighter! Doubt he'll seem so cute once the bullets and ideology start flying though.
The shocking reveal that the Sibyl System is really a network of criminally asymptomatic brains was only the beginning. The real twist--the grey matter is yellow, tastes like pumpkin and houses a crunchy cookie center! Hats off to Urobuchi, I never saw that one coming.
Candy, Tsunemori's holographic servant, lives up to her name with this strawberry mousse parfait. But things are not what they seem. Each layer is more shocking than the last--dig past the black sesame ice cream to find peeled grapes and a bed of lime jelly that quivers like a criminal shot by a Lethal Eliminator round. Enjoy the juicy explosion of fruit flavor inside your mouth!
Speaking of Dominators, these macaroon designs are a reminder not to try any funny business with the maids. If you need to splash your face with cold water and cool down, just ask the staff, "WC?" No, not "what color," it stands for "water closet"--the antiquated word for "bathroom."
