The fans of the series Psycho Pass just cheered up from the news of the anime getting a trilogy of its own before the release of season 3. Earlier in 2018, the producer Akitoshi Mori teased the fans about the continuation of the series, and the fans have been waiting for the season 3 ever since. However, now the recently, the release date of the first Psycho Pass movie sequel is confirmed for January 2019.
The trilogy of the movie is called ‘Psycho Pass Sinners of the System’. Each movie is labeled a case number and will showcase two different characters of the series. The first movie is the first case, and the title of the movie is ‘Tsumi to Bachi (Crime and Punishment)’. The second case is titled, ‘First Guardian’ and the third case is titled, ‘On the Other Side of Love and Hate’.
Production IG handled the season 1 of the anime and its first movie while Tatsunoko Production did the second season. The critical reception of the Psycho Pass season 2 has not been very, and hence the fans are rooting for Production IG to come back for the Sinner of the System trilogy. Although, there have been no updates from the production house yet.
The movie trilogy for Psycho Pass will be released internationally for the English speaking fans of the series. There is still no confirmation about the platform which will be used for international screening. However, along with other anime production houses Production IG announced a co-production deal in 2018 with Netflix. There may be chances the Psycho Pass SS trilogy may be falling within this deal.
The story of the anime series is set in the future where the crime is taken down using the Sibyl system. This system is a robust network of psychometric scanners which measures the likelihood of a person is committing a crime in the future by the measure of Crime Coefficient. When the crime coefficient exceeds a threshold index, the person is captured or eliminated as per the necessity. Police Enforcers are chosen in this system who already have high crime index, and they are kept under observation during their work.
