Having learned the true nature of the Sybilla System, Akane Tsunemori chose to obey the system, believing in both humanity and the legal order. She's part of a new police section and spends her everyday life facing down criminals. Unbeknownst to Akane, however, a monster who will shake the system to its core is about to appear before her.
Psycho-Pass 2 premiered in October on Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina programming block and continues the story of the original Psycho Pass anime that screened in 2012.
Naoyoshi Shiotani (Blood-C: The Last Dark) returned to direct the series alongside season 1 composer Yuugo Kanno (Gundam Reconguista in G), but Tow Ubukata (Fafner, Mardock Scramble) is now handling the series composition with Jun Kumagai (Persona 4 the Golden Animation) writing scripts. Tatsunoko Production has replaced Production I.G as the animation production studio. Psycho-Pass season 1's series composer, Gen Urobuchi (Fate/Zero) is helping out with planning supervision and the story concept. Ling Tosite Sigure performs the opening theme "Enigmatic Feeling" and EGOIST performs the ending theme "Fallen."
Funimation licensed Psycho-Pass 2 and has included the series as part of their broadcast dubs strategy with English dubs available a month behind their Japanese subs. However the English dubs are (currently) only available to Funimation subscribers.
Madman Entertainment acquired Psycho-Pass in 2013 and streamed the series later that year. The series was released to home video on Blu-ray and DVD in May 2014 and is now available to watch for free in it's entirety on AnimeLab.com.
