Inspectors Arata Shindou and Mikhail Kei Ignatov have uncovered a dangerous conspiracy. The Sybil System, the ultimate judge of human character in Japan, is being undermined by a criminal syndicate that is amassing wealth and power in the shadows.

Now, Bifrost agent Kouichi Azusawa launches a direct assault upon the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) by occupying its headquarters and taking Inspector Shindou and everyone with him hostage. CID Unit 01 supervisor, along with Chief Mika Shimotsuki and former unit members Shinya Kougami and Nobuchika Ginoza, face the task of reclaiming the building and saving everyone inside.

Alongside the hostage situation and Azusawa's demands for Tokyo governor Karina Komiya's resignation, there is a sinister plot hatching in the background—a secret plan that will force Inspector Shindou to confront not only Azusawa but also his own past. These events slowly bring him closer to unshrouding the mystery that has eluded him and his best friend, Ignatov, for many years.

It seems that Bifrost are going after Komiya's head. With surrender not being an option, the teams must ...

By this point in the Psycho Pass series it's a different feel. You don't get the masterful story telling and moral dilemma of Season 1. You get a better total story if you combine Season 3 with the First Inspector movie compared to Season 2.

Season 3 Psycho Pass is more of the cat and mouse game type of story with a lot of different characters doing different things to advance the story. The reason for mixed reviews is that it doesn't have that masterpiece plot that Season 1 had. It is also difficult to match arguably one of the greatest villains in anime history ...

It has become obvious that Psycho Pass will never rise out of the mediocrity that it has been in since the end of its first season. That original season breathed a breath of fresh air into a dead genre. Let's face it, there are not many good science fiction anime. Yet Psycho Pass gave us a likeable cast, an interesting narrative, and most importantly, a compelling ethical dilemna. Yet as the story of Psycho Pass has progressed through its sequels we have only gotten farther and farther from those original ideas.

So here we are, standing with a cast twice removed from the originals, and facing ...
