It’s been 10 years since the Psycho-Pass anime first premiered in 2012. It’s only natural that they would want to celebrate this anniversary, and what better way to celebrate it than with an announcement for a new anime film?

A Wondrous New Providence?

"Psycho-Pass: Providence" key art.
This key art is giving me such strong Ghost in the Shell vibes.

For their 10th anniversary, Psycho-Pass officially announced their new anime film Psycho-Pass: Providence on Twitter. That key art above accompanied the announcement. As you can see, the key art gives us a nice lineup of the agents of Unit One of the Ministry of Welfare Public Safety Bureau’s Criminal Investigation Division, including the viewpoint character Akane Tsunemori front and center. All set to the background of their dystopian cyberpunk Japan ruled by their Minority Report-like Sybil System.

Unfortunately, that’s it as far as this Psycho-Pass: Providence is concerned. The announcement only announces that this new anime film is in the works at Production I.G. They announce nothing else. No production crew, no voice cast (although presumably, the old voice talent will return to this new anime film), and certainly no release window. That’s something we’ll have to wait for at a later date. Tune in later to find out when we do.

Psycho-Pass: Details

Basically: Minority Report: The Anime.

Psycho-Pass is an original cyberpunk crime psychological thriller anime series from animation studio Production I.G (Eden of the East, Haikyuu!!, Ghost in the Shell). Naoyoshi Shiotani and Katsuyuki Motohiro directed this anime, with George Wada, Kenji Tobori, and Wakana Okamura producing. Gen Urobuchi, Makoto Fukami, and Aya Takaha are the writers, with Yugo Kanno composing the music. Lastly, Funimation licensed this anime for its NA release.

As for what Psycho-Pass is about? Well, Crunchyroll has an official synopsis on the anime’s page. Check it out below:

“In the future, thinking about a crime makes you guilty, and justice is dispensed from the barrel of a gun. Detectives work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, and Inspectors make sure their partners don’t cross the line. The equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a weapon that can tell when citizens are about to turn criminal.”

You can catch up with all previous seasons, whether in the original Japanese audio with English subtitles or English dub, of Psycho-Pass on Funimation or Crunchyroll. Note that only Crunchyroll offers the anime for free with ads, so if you don’t want to spend a cent, then head on over there.
