The ongoing manga launched in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine in June 2014. Midori Gotou writes the manga, Natsuo Sai provides the art, and Psycho-Pass writer Gen Urobuchi is credited with the original story.
The prequel is set during the time when Kogami was still an Inspector, he commands a team of Enforcers, hunting down latent criminals before they can commit crimes in a near-future society where people's propensity for crime can be measured in a number called a "crime coefficient" or "psycho-pass."
The Psycho-Pass anime has also inspired the Kanshikan Tsunemori Akane and Psycho-Pass 2 manga, as well as the gag manga Gakuen Psycho-Pass.
The first Psycho-Pass television anime series premiered in 2012. Funimation licensed the series for release in North America. A second season debuted in 2014, and Funimation similarly licensed and streamed the series as it aired in Japan. A film opened in Japan in January 2015, and Funimation opened the film in the United States on Tuesday, and in Canada on Wednesday.
