Psycho-Pass Providence Animated Film Announced During Series’ 10th Anniversary
Ten years have passed since the release of the first Psycho Pass TV anime season, and nowthe new movie Psycho Pass Providence was announced.
The new film was announced as part of the series’ 10th anniversary event; it is an upcoming anime film directed by Naoyoshi Shiotani.
Although no trailer was released alongside the announcement, the key visual for the film was released.
The key visual is interesting as it features the cast from the first two seasons and the first movie, including Akane Tsunemori, Shinya Kogami, Nobuchika Ginoza, Yayoi Kunizuka, Mika Shimotsuki, and others.
Although the key visual was not accompanied by any other information about the film’s story, fans speculated that the film’s story would take place before the events of Psycho Pass 3.
In case you need a refresher, Psycho Pass 3 featured a new cast of characters and no longer featured Akane as the main protagonist. As the visual implies her return, fans online are happy with Akane’s return as the main character.
Along with the upcoming movie, the franchise’s 10th anniversary will also be celebrated with a series of events, including a collaborative cafe with Noitamina Shop & Cafe Theater, as well as an online exhibit that will feature special artwork from the series.
Psycho Pass began as an original television anime by Production IG and was written by Gen Urobuchi (the author of magic madoka and FateZero) and released in October 2012.
Since then, the series has grown into a media franchise with two more television anime seasons, movies, written novels, and a visual novel, among other projects.
The series is a dystopian cyberpunk thriller set in a future version of Japan ruled by the Sibyl system. This system measures citizens’ brains to keep track of their mental state or “psycho-pass”.
Within this psycho-pass is the “Crime Coefficient”, a number that indicates their likelihood of committing a crime. If a citizen’s crime coefficient reaches 100, he is apprehended by the authorities.
For those who reach 120, they are automatically marked for elimination by Enforcers equipped with Dominators.
Psycho-Pass Providence release date
Psycho Pass Providence is currently in preparation by Production IG. Although as of now, there is no specific release date or release window yet for the upcoming movie.
It’s likely that more information will be revealed, possibly around October 12, as that day marks the official 10th anniversary of the series.
