If you’re a huge fan of the anime “Psycho-Pass” and a movie-goer, I have a good news for you. Today(March 15, 2016) is the official release of the Psycho pass The Movie which will only be shown in 100 theaters around the globe.After a successful series of the Psycho-Pass on televisions, it is a very nice opportunity to see the movie and see how it goes.
“In a futuristic Japan, the Sibyl System is charged with keeping the peace. Using extensive surveillance and biological monitoring to gauge the likelihood that individuals will commit a crime, the police are able to use weapons called Dominators to remove potential criminals from the population before they become a problem. Confident with the success of the System within their own borders, the Japanese government has begun to export the technology to other countries, planning to ultimately spread the System across the globe.
When the state of SEAUn brings the Sibyl System in to test its effectiveness, it becomes a haven of peace and safety—for a time. Eventually, terrorists from SEAUn begin appearing in Japan, somehow slipping through the System’s security and attacking from within. Desperate for answers, Inspector Akane Tsunemori is sent overseas to bring the terrorists to justice. But when her investigation forces her into a standoff with an old ally, will she be able to pull the trigger? “
Psycho Pass may not have been a realistic representation of today’s societal state,but the observation of human morals, psychological concepts, and fluctuation of emotions can all be applied to our methodology of thinking and our outlook on life itself. And what really sold out to me on this anime is the well developed and intricate characters like Tsunemori Akane. Many people have been comparing it with Death Note but I think if you love Death Note so much, I don’t see any reasons you wouldn’t love Psycho-Pass as much as Death Note.
Psycho-Pass was nominated for the Seiun Award and won best title of the year in the 2013 Newtype anime awards.
It has gone on to spawned several video-game spin-offs, a novel series and a manga series as well. It’s a sci-fi action packed movie you shouldn’t miss!Some may love it,and others may hate the movie, but I suggest you watch the movie yourself and tell to the world what you hate about it and love about it. I do think not everyone is pleased by the dark and vague environment but if you do, you will love Psycho-Pass!
