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 by occupying its headquarters and taking Inspector Shindou and everyone with him hostage. CID Unit 1 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.

Psycho Pass 3: First Inspector is a worthy conclusion to the third season. A lot of loose ends were resolved, although not all, and there was another development for the Sybil System. It isn't perfect and there was a lot more I wanted it to do but the movie focused on its own goals and accomplished them well.

It focuses entirely on the Bifrost organisation attacking the Public Safety Bureau and taking over their headquarters to either kill the governor or forcing her to retire. They break in slightly too easily to be believable in my opinion, but nevertheless, the officers need to find a way read more

First Inspector is a strong performance for the Psycho Pass series as a whole, not just Season 3. The animation quality might possibly be the series' best yet. However, while the movie wrapped up most plotlines for the season and could easily work as the series' ending, there were quite a few mysteries left unresolved and a few introduced. Though, the main goal here was to wrap up Bifrost cleanly, and it accomplished that well.

First Inspector breaks from normal Psycho-Pass tradition, though, with mixed results. As Director Shiotani noted, the movie gave less focus on the fight scenes. This worked well for Arata and Azusawa read more

So, Psycho-Pass 3 was alright. Not amazing, but could've been much worse. You could already kind of see the writing on the wall for turning this series into a bog-standard detective show that had dropped a lot of what made it compelling. I get it, studios need to sell Blu-rays. This follow-up, however, gives me little hope for whatever sequels they have planned.

The ending set it up as an almost complete abandonment of the grit and moral quandaries of the first season in favor of shipping several couples together in that typical anime fashion where they never kiss or confess their feelings (except the read more
