The previously announced Psycho-Pass Providence anime movie will premiere in Japan on May 12, an official tweet has revealed.

More information about the film will arrive at a later date.

Psycho-Pass Providence is the latest entry in the Production I.G-produced cyberpunk thriller series, which began in 2012 with a 22-episode season. The original series’ main staff includes Katsuyuki Motohiro as chief director, Naoyoshi Shiotani as director, Gen Urobuchi as story draft writer, manga artist Akira Amano as original character designer, Kyouji Asano as character designer, and Takahiro Chiba as sub-character designer. 

Crunchyroll describes the first season as:

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.

Like Psycho-Pass 3: First Inspector, Psycho-Pass Providence is directed by Shiotani with Naoyuki Onda as character designer, Tow Ubukata as script composer and one of the scriptwriters, Makiko Suzuki as color designer, Shuuichi Kusamori as art director, Eiji Arai as photography director, and Yugo Kanno as music composer.

The cast, which features characters from across the series, includes Kana Hanazawa as Akane Tsunemori, Tomokazu Seki as Shinya Kogami, Kenji Nojima as Nobuchika Ginoza, Shizuka Itou as Yayoi Kunizuka, Miyuki Sawashiro as Shion Karanomori, Ayane Sakura as Mika Shimotsuki, Takahiro Sakurai as Sho Hinakawa, Hiroki Touchi as Teppei Sugo, Takako Honda as Frederica Hanashiro, and Kazuhiro Yamaji as Joji Saiga.

The most recent Psycho-Pass movie prior to Providence is 2020’s Psycho-Pass 3: First Inspector movie. Outside of having three seasons and multiple movies, the anime has also inspired manga, light novels, and a visual novel.
