Psycho-Pass Episode 4 - Nobody Knows Your Mask

Sharing your problems with a complete stranger, when hasn't that been a good idea?
This episode of Psycho-Pass tells us about the creepers you can find on the internet and the crazy people who are obsessed with idols. Yet, it still manages to entertain, very well at that.

I loved the avatar designs, some of them remind me of the secondary avatars in Accel World
So this time, Psycho-Pass takes on the internet, avatars, idols, and all that good stuff. Today's case involves a missing man who just so happens to play the role of a popular internet icon. But, strangely, that certain character's avatar is still active, and still very much in character. 

It's like the pot is calling the kettle black...
Even with the assistance of a former high school classmate of Akane's, the team was unable to figure out who the perpetrator was this episode, which is strange for this series, seeing as all of the cases so far have been solved in one episode. Also, Mr.White Hair Guy made an appearance, which piques my interest because we still don't really know what his relation to Kougami is.

These guys are so obsessed with internet idols that they're willing to kill to keep the lovable characters
This is going to be the first actual multiple episode arc of the series, and I have to say I'm quite looking forward to the outcome, and learning more about the white-haired guy.

Episode Rating: 8.5/10 Though the was a lack of battle scenes, the mystery was interesting, the setting was different from the show's norm, white-haired guy showed up, and someone died. Good stuff.
