The November issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine is announcing on Thursday that a manga adaptation of the upcoming Production I.G anime Psycho-Pass will launch in the following issue on November 2. Relative newcomer Hikaru Miyoshi is drawing the manga.
The original anime series takes place in the near future, when it is possible to instantaneously measure and quantify a person's state of mind and personality. This information is recorded and processed, and the term "Psycho-Pass" in the anime's title refers to a standard used to measure an individual's being. The story centers around the "enforcement officer" Shinya Kōgami who is tasked with managing crime in such a world.
The anime series will premiere in October. Akira Amano (Reborn) created the anime's original character designs, and Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/zero) drafted the story.
