    Episode 1

    Trace on.

    This series has a much different feel now that episodes are double in length all while two rookies are now the MCs instead of Akane and Kogami. So it begins with a case where an immigrant-carrying transport drone crashes, and one of the passengers in Rick is nowhere to be found on it. And to solve this case, Arata is brought in as he can trace what happened, and that's how his body was found. It turns out this was orchestrated, and it traces to Yonehara and Sasagawa, two executives of the company. And then there's a lot of disagreement within the bureau, so there's just a lot of moving parts in this investigation. An interesting start there as while this season so far doesn't have the emotional toil that made the first season so memorable, it's a huge improvement over season 2 and while Gen Urobochi is not part of the production team for this season, I'm at least glad IG is back doing the animation. Anyway, this season has a much different feel than the first two seasons.

      Episode 2

      The hue is clear. The reason is not.

      This episode goes to show why Makishima was so memorable as his existence pointed out the flaws of Sibyl and how there's a way to manipulate the system so that criminals can do their dirty work without registering any cloudiness in their hue. Yonehara and Sasagawa orchestrated the crash to happen so that they wouldn't be directly responsible for their deaths, all while they would silence Rick, who would have wrecked their Ponzi scheme had he blew the whistle. Too bad for Yonehara that the mafia silenced him for good before authorities could get to him with the data being leaked out, all while Arata and Kei had to disobey orders to get to Sasagawa. And then comes another case investigating an apparent suicide, and it's a great thing Arata can trace all the events to put the pieces together. That was some great drama there going to show just how overdependent people are on this system. And it's great to finally see Kogami back and being the kickass guy he has always been.

        Episode 3

        Hitting a dead end.

        So there's an election going on, and it's a dirty campaign on both sides between Komiya and Yakushiji. Yakushiji's secretary Aki is murdered, and while trying to trace the assassination back, that hits a dead end. And then Kei needs to do better with anger management as because of that, he punched someone and was booted off the case to be replaced by none other than Yayoi. And while that's going on, the family histories of the two MCs are revealed as Arata's father apparently killed Kei's brother, while Arata's parents killed themselves. And things aren't much better with Temma as he was branded a latent criminal despite being one of those genetically immune to the Sibyl system. Should be interesting to see where things are going.
