There is no Next Episode of Psycho-Pass planned.
On her first day as the new Inspector of Unit One, Inspector Akane Tsunemori has been assigned to handle a hostage situation: a man named Nobuo Okura whose Crime Coefficient has determined he is likely to commit a crime and is confirmed when he kidnaps an innocent woman. While looking for him, Akane learns about the nature of the Dominator, and the relationship between Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcer Shuusei Kagari finds Okura, but a weapons malfunction gives him away. Okura flees, and Unit One pursues him. After Enforcer Shinya Kogami disposes of Okura, the unit learns that the hostage's Crime Coefficient has risen to a high level. Before Kogami can execute her, Akane stops him with the Dominator's paralyzer. In the end, Akane manages to calm the woman down, letting her Crime Coefficient reduce to the point where she can be paralyzed and taken away; while Akane must explain her actions in a report to her superiors.
Kogami remains hospitalized as he recovers from the Dominator-enforced paralysis; Akane begins a normal work day after meeting with friends and checks on his condition. Enforcer Tomomi Masaoka teams up with Akane to take out a threat in the mall, and after they return, Akane shares a meal and some revealing conversation with Kagari. Later, she greets Kogami, who reinforces her belief she made the right call during the hostage situation; she turns in her report with no regrets.
Unit One is called to a drone plant to investigate another dismembering incident. Inspector Nobuchika Ginoza and Masaoka have a heated disagreement; when Akane questions Ginoza, he tells her she is a fool to treat the Enforcers as a colleague rather than a handler. The manager of the plant swears the dismembering is an accident, but Unit One thinks otherwise; they notice a plant worker being bullied by the others. Without the Sibyl System, they have no way of identifying the killer, but the Enforcers cook up a wild plan that terrifies Akane - and nevertheless succeeds.
Unit One attempts to find the culprit behind the murder of a man known online as the popular avatar "Talisman", now controlled by his killer. Akane, with the help of the avatar "Spooky Boogie", infiltrates a CommuField gathering to expose the murderer, but the ploy goes awry. Afterward, the murderer, who happens to be working with Shogo Makishima, kills the owner of "Spooky Boogie" and takes over her avatar as well.
Ginoza and his team nearly got ambushed when they track the murderer to a bomb-rigged hideout. Kogami, who had analyzed Akane's chats with Spooky Boogie and the guest data on the idols' communities, determines the identity of the murderer, who goes by the name of Masatake Midou. Meanwhile, Midou receives a warning not to disappoint Makishima. Masaoka, Akane, and Kogami close in on the suspect and manage to severely wound him before he flees to the safety of his avatars - who turn on him under Makishima's command. The group apprehends the suspect, and later Ginoza reveals to Akane his reasons about his attitude to Enforcers. It turns out that his former partner is Kogami who used to be an Inspector before his Crime Coefficient went high due to a cold case.
Ginoza and his team theorize that a mastermind might have influenced the murderous actions of two recent suspects by essentially providing them with the ability and motivation to carry out their deadly desires. Kogami sees eerie similarities between these cases and the earlier unsolved case that got him demoted to Enforcer which also resulted the grotesque death of his Enforcer, Sasayama. Meanwhile, Akane seeks out more information on Kogami from Kagari and Shion Karanomori and learns about Sasayama and the cold case known as the Specimen Case. At a girls' school, Rikako Oryo, the enigmatic president of the art club, ensnares an unsuspecting victim and mutilates her corpse into a work of "art" under the tutelage of the evident mastermind, Makishima.
After realizing that the recent murders and the Specimen Case are indeed connected, Ginoza takes Kogami off the case and requests Akane to watch over him. Akane discusses Sasayama's murder with Kogami, and he shows her his one piece of evidence: a blurry image of Makishima. Meanwhile, Makishima, in a study with Toyohisa Senguji, reveals the circumstances of Rikako Oryo's father's death and discusses the nature of the shortening life expectancy. Later, Rikako continues her crimes with the help of Makishima's colleague, Choe Gu-Sung, and abducts another fellow student who is worried about her friend's disappearance.
With his profiling skills, Kogami determines that the girls' school killer isn't the same murderer from the unsolved case years ago; he explains that the recent murders lack "originality" and pointed social commentary of the previous killings. When he and Akane realize the culprit is one of the students, they locate Rikako - who escapes when one of teachers stops Kogami from executing her. As the Enforcers try to locate her secret routes and hiding places, Rikako flees - but not before everyone discovers her latest creation. Makishima calls Rikako to tell her that she's a disappointment and has Senguji dispose her. In the meantime, Kogami picks up a damaged audio file which was deliberately left by Makishima. Due to Rikako's failure, Makishima develops an interest in Kogami.
Kogami, attempting to track down Makishima, takes Akane to visit his former teacher, Jouji Saiga, who agrees to give her a crash course on criminal profiling; however, Ginoza reprimands her harshly which results into an argument. Afterwards, Masaoka explains to her Ginoza's attitude by revealing his past. In the meantime, Makishima discusses humanity and philosophy with Senguji, who in an earlier interview reveals himself to be nearly a full cyborg. He gives him his next target: Shinya Kogami.
Makishima and Senguji set up a hunt by using Akane's friend, Yuki, as bait to lure Kogami into an abandoned subway station. Upon entering the station, Kogami discovers Yuki in a train car and loses contact with Akane; the two must evade Senguji and his canine drones as a curious Makishima observes from above. Ginoza scolds Akane for letting Kogami go on his own but Masaoka chastises him over his treatment of her. Meanwhile, Makishima rigs the hunt to give Kogami a chance to create a working transponder and, as a result, Kogami makes contact with the group outside and they go in after him.
With a drone delivering him a Dominator, Kogami manages to outwit Senguji and kill him, although he also takes some shots in the process. Just then, Yuki is captured by Makishima, with Kogami too weak to follow. As Masaoka tends to Kogami's injuries, Akane goes alone to pursue Makishima. To her shock, she discovers her Dominator is useless against him as his Crime Coefficient levels are too low, with Makishima attributing his murderous intent to his own free will. He gives Akane the opportunity to try killing him with Senguji's shotgun, but she finds herself unable to do it and is forced to helplessly watch Makishima kill Yuki right before her eyes. In the end, Akane tells everyone that Makishima is immune to the Dominator.
Three years ago, Yayoi, a former guitarist, was institutionalized after she's detected as a latent criminal. As she anxiously waits for release so she can play the guitar again, she is approached by Kogami, who was still an Inspector, and Ginoza about a series of crimes occurring in the area she was once familiar with. She initially rejects their offer until Kogami gives her some guitar strings which reminded her of a guitarist she admired, Rina Takizaki. When the club they are investigating gets set on fire after Kogami's Enfocer partner Mitsuru Sasayama jumps the gun in approaching culprits dealing with Molotov Cocktails. Yayoi decides to search for Rina, only to discover she is part of a resistance group selling the Molotov cocktails in the hopes of overthrowing the Sybil System. Yayoi tries to stop Rina but finds she is unable to use the Dominator that Kogami gave her, as she was not actually an Enforcer yet, and Rina escapes. Afterwards, Yayoi resolves to become an Enforcer and leaves the rehabilitation center.
Ginoza meets up with the head of the Public Security Bureau, Joushuu Kasei, about Makishima, who confidentially reveals to him about the real culprit of the Specimen Case, Touma Kouzoburou, three years ago who happens to be "criminally asymptomatic" just like Makishima. She urges him to keep any doubts away from the public eye and orders him to capture Makishima. Following Yuki's funeral, Akane agrees to undergo a 'Memory Scoop' to provide a photofit of Makishima based on her memories of the incident, despite warnings from others that it may damage her Psycho-Pass. Despite reliving the traumatizing memory, the Memory Scoop is successfully completed without her Psycho-Pass reaching into dangerous levels, providing a photofit image of Makishima to aid in the investigation. Later, Ginoza discusses with Masaoka, who is actually his father, about how Akane manages to keep her Psycho-Pass from becoming clouded.
A man in a helmet breaks into a pharmacy, kills the staff, and departs with drugs. When the MWSPB arrives on the scene, they find his Crime Coefficient was not high enough to set off the alarm. The same man attacks a woman in public, brutally beating her to death with a hammer in front of a crowd and a Psycho-Pass scanner. Later, the team learn that more culprits, wearing the same helmets, rob an armored car. Kogami deduces that the second crime would have a motive, leading their investigation to a man named Jyunmei Itoh who had a grudge against the victim. As Itoh attempts to escape, Kogami deduces that the helmets copy the low Crime Coefficients of innocent bystanders, thus help criminals avoid apprehension. With Akane and Masaoka's help, he apprehends the murderer.
As footage of the helmet killings appear on the internet, the helmets are distributed to more criminals who begin committing more horrendous crimes out in the open, prompting bloodthirsty revenge from the public in the name of self-defense. As the MWPSB suppress the riots, Kogami deduces that the riots are intended to draw the police away from the Health and Welfare Ministry's Nona Tower facility, where the Sibyl System is located. As Makishima and his gang break in, Kogami, Akane and Shuusei head to the scene.
As Akane, Kogami, and Shuusei enter the Nona Tower, Makishima intends to act as a diversion at the top of the tower while Guseong reaches the core of the Sibyl System in the hidden basement. Kogami and Akane decide to chase after Makishima to the top of the tower as Shuusei descends to the basement. After descending to the hidden basement, Shuusei has lost connection with the network and discovers the truth behind the Sibyl System. Meanwhile, Kogami engages in a battle with Makishima. Makishima beats Kogami but is knocked out by Akane. Kogami instructs Akane to kill Makishima but Akane was able to control her emotions. Meanwhile, Shuusei defeats the guards and confronts Guseong at the heart of the Sibyl System, who is suddenly killed by Kasei, who is revealed to be a cyborg and proceeds to override her Dominator to fire at Shuusei.
After Makishima is taken in and the riots are brought under control, Kogami remains curious about how Makishima will be judged, as well as the whereabouts of Shuusei. Later that day, Kasei tells Ginoza that Makishima's case has been taken out of the MWPSB's hands and orders him to investigate Shuusei's whereabouts, much to the ire of both Ginoza and Kogami. Later, Makishima is confronted by Kasei who reveals herself as Kouzoborou and shares a cybernetic body with Kasei. He explains to Makishima about the true nature of the Sybil System, which is revealed to be a supercomputer network composed of human brains of criminally asymptomatic individuals like him. Kouzoborou offers Makishima to become a part of the System. But he refuses and instead kills Kouzaborou and escapes from the transit which is supposed to take him to the Ministry of Welfare before briefly contacting Kogami about his escape
As Ginoza discovers that he is unauthorized to investigate the crash site of Makishima's carrier, Kasei reassigns him on recapturing Makishima and requests that Kogami should be taken off the case. Kogami suspects that something is amiss behind the whole order, believing there is something Kasei is hiding from them. Agreeing with him, Ginoza arranges for Kogami to be transferred to Division 2 who are in charge of investigating Shuusei's whereabouts. However, they are confronted by Kasei, who tries to get Ginoza to kill Kogami, but luckily Akane knocks him out with Paralyzer mode before anything can happen. Upon awakening, Kogami borrows one of the helmets from Shion and retrieves keys to a safehouse from Masaoka before leaving the MWPSB, explaining in a letter to Akane that the only way where he can stop Makishima is to step outside of the law.
Ginoza, whose Hue is now problematic, eschews intensive therapy in order to work on retrieving Kogami and Makishima. He argues with Masaoka over his "softness," and declares his intention to see his "obsession" through to the end. Kogami, meanwhile, goes to visit Saiga in order to figure out Makishima's next move; the two surmise that Makishima might attempt to meddle with Japan's food supply in order to force open borders for the country. Shion does her best to comfort Akane and Kasei connects with Sibyl to determine their new "pawn." Later, Akane is contacted by the Sybil System itself, declaring that it will tell her the truth about everything.
The Sibyl System reveals itself to Akane, claiming that she understands the necessity of the system, if not its justifiability, asking her for cooperation to apprehend Makishima alive. Makishima finds the professor who is responsible for the hyper-oats and murders him after finding the information he seeks, taking along the man's fingers and eyeballs as a measure against biometric security. Kogami arrives on the scene not long after and leaves a clue for the MWSPB in the man's airpipe. Meanwhile, Akane contacts Sibyl and convinces it to withdraw the execution order for Kogami, should she accomplishes its request to capture Makishima alive. Thanks to her detective work, they quickly find Kogami's clue and learns about the situation, as Makishima finally reaches his destination, with Kogami right on his trail.
As Makishima works on reprogramming the virus, both Kogami and the MWPSB arrive at the factory, with Kogami instructing Akane that they need to shut down power to the facility to bypass the security. Prior to arriving, Akane manages to convince the Sibyl System to keep her Dominator on Paralyzer mode with the safety unlocked regardless of Crime Coefficient to use as a trump card against Makishima and Kogami. After the power is shut down, Kogami sneaks into the facility whilst Akane and Yayoi head to the control room in case Makishima attempts to activate the emergency power. Finding the control room empty, Akane comes to realise that Ginoza and Masaoka are in danger. As Ginoza becomes trapped under a container after tripping up a trap, Masaoka comes face to face with Makishima. Although Masaoka appears to get the upper hand, Makishima threatens to blow Ginoza up with a stick of dynamite, with Masaoka ultimately sacrificing himself to save his son. As Ginoza remains horrified by his father's death, Kogami pursues Makishima and prepares to engage in a knife fight with him.
Kogami manages to stab Makishima during their fight, but Akane interrupts their fight. Makishima escapes in a truck and Akane shoots out the wheels; Makishima crashes in a field. Kogami sets Akane aside and then pursues the heavily-bleeding Makishima. Resigned to his fate, Makishima kneels and waits for Kogami to execute him. Afterwards, the Sibyl System tells Akane that they intend to reveal themselves in the future where the public will come to accept it, though Akane responds that someone will pull their plug in the future. The system responds asking her to fight for a better future. In the succeeding two months, Ginoza becomes an Enforcer and visits his father's grave. Shion and Yayoi reflect on the changes in the MWSPB and a young new Inspector arrives on the scene. At the end of the episode, Kogami departs a small cabin room from an unspecified ship.
