Following the successful sold-out first one in the spring of 2019, Stage Play PSYCHO-PASS Virtue and Vice 2 , the second spin-off stage play inspired by Production I.G’s sci-fi crime suspense anime franchise PSYCHO-PASS, finally kicked off in Tokyo last Friday. Prior to its opening show, its dress rehearsal session was introduced to Japanese media.
The stage play series has been directed by Katsuyuki Motohiro, who has served as general director for the anime series including the 2015 feature film. It tells a spin-off story about original characters’ activities at the Public Safety Bureau’s Criminal Investigation Division Unit Three. The first show written by one of the anime’s screenplay writers, Makoto Fukami, centered on Haruto Kusen (Hiroki Suzuki), and the second show written by Junya Ikeda (Gai Ikari / Gokai Silver in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger) tells a prequel story about the past of Hiro Kanou (Takuma Wada), who appeared in the first show as well.
Stage Play PSYCHO-PASS Virtue and Vice 2 is set to be performed at Meijiza in Tokyo from November 20 to 29, then at COOL JAPAN PARK OSAKA WW Hall in Osaka from December 3 to 6. Its DVD/Blu-ray is set to be released on May 26, 2021.
