A near future where the mental state of humans is controlled and quantified.
Apprehending “potential criminals” before they commit a crime are the officers who wield the Dominator, a weapon that measures the probability of one’s inclination to commit a crime—the Crime Coefficient.
The world of PSYCHO-PASS expanded as the original TV anime series first released in 2012 and after that came a second season in 2014. The series’ first film went on theatres in 2015.
All the staff from the TV series and the first film will return for the trilogy. Naoyoshi Shiotani will return as the Director and Production I.G will animate the film.
The scriptwriter for Case.1 is the author of the series’ novel, PSYCHO-PASS ASYLUM／GENESIS. Makoto Fukami, the scriptwriter for the TV series’ first season and first film will return to pen for Case.2 and Case.3.
The trilogy is set approximately 100 years in the future, within Japan and Asia. Each part will tell the stories of the events across the present, past and future. Fighting crime are the Enforcers who are deemed to contain exceedingly high Crime Coefficients and the elite officers—Inspectors who are selected by the Sybil System.
To prevent crime, one requires the instincts of a hound and the intelligence of a hunter. Each event will reveal unexpected truths and reflect the current state of the world. The missing links within the untold stories of PSYCHO-PASS will finally be revealed.
Case.1: Crime and Punishment
“Is it okay if I claim this case as mine?”
In the winter of 2117, a runaway vehicle crashes into the Public Safety Bureau Building.
The driver is identified as Izumi Yasaka, a psychological counselor at the Sanctuary, a Latent Criminal Isolation Facility in Aomori Prefecture. But right before her interrogation, Enforcer Mika Shimotsuki and Inspector Nobuchika Ginoza are tasked with promptly escorting Yasaka back to Aomori. What awaits them there is a “False Paradise”.
Case.2: First Guardian
“What really happened during the Footstamp Operation?!”
2112, at Okinawa; the summer before Akane Tsunemori was assigned to Division One of the Public Safety Bureau’s Criminal Investigation Department.
Teppei Sugo, an accomplished pilot of the Defense Army’s 15th Integrated Task Force, joins the military operation. Three months later, an unmanned combat drone opens fire on the Ministry of Defense in Tokyo. Enforcer Tomomi Masaoka of CID Division One is dispatched to Sugo’s military base to investigate the truth behind this case.
Case.3: On The Other Side of Love and Hate
“Would you become my teacher?”
Following the incident in the Southeast Asia Union (SEAUn) in 2116, Shinya Kogami resumes his vagrant journey.
In a small South Asian nation, Kogami rescues a bus of refugees under attack by armed guerrilla forces. Among the refugees is a young lady by the name of Tenzing, who begs Kogami to teach her how to retaliate against the enemy. Just what do the girl who wishes for revenge and the man who has exacted revenge see as they gaze upon the edge of a world from which there is no escape?
