It was announced that the romance adventure game “Collar x Malice” will be made into a theatrical animation and released in 2023. In addition, an illustration was drawn by Mai Hanamura, who is in charge of character design for the original game, and a unique promotional video has been released.
The original is a PlayStation Vita software developed by Idea Factory and released by Otomate in 2016. In Shinjuku, where the series of violent incidents “X-Day Incident” casts a shadow, the main character, who works as a police officer, is attacked one night by someone and is put on a collar containing poison.

The hero removes the collar and begins an investigation with them to restore peace to Shinjuku. Seiichi Morita, Yuki Kaji, Soma Saito, Daisuke Namikawa, and Ryohei Kimura are in charge of the character voices. In 2020, it was ported to the Nintendo Switch, and in 2019, the first stage, “Collar x Malice -Okazaki Contract-” was performed and made into a series.
