Psycho-Pass, the cyberpunk psychological animated series, celebrated its 10th anniversary in October 2022 with the announcement of a new animated film titled Psycho-Pass: Providence, which is set to be released on May 12, 2023.
Regarded as one of the most iconic thriller anime series ever, Psycho-Pass debuted in October 2012 and was followed by two more seasons and several feature-length films.
The story takes place in a futuristic Japan that's governed by the Sibyl System, a powerful computer network that keeps tabs on the physical and mental wellbeings of all who live in the nation. The Sibyl System has made it possible to quantify each person's psychological state, personality tendencies, and even the probability of them committing crimes. Those with exceptionally high Crime Coeffecient Indices are pursued by members of the Crime Investigation Department of the Ministry of Welfare's Public Safety Bureau. The story follows the Inspectors and Enforcers as they work together to keep the streets safe.
