This season I'd check out both Erased (CR) and Ajin (Netflix, not being simulcast).

Afro Samurai is Samuel L. Jackson being Afro Samurai.
Basilisk is about two warring ninja clans; pretty old school with lots of killing.
Black Lagoon is about smugglers operating out of a city run by different crime syndicates.
Black Rock Shooter has a parallel world where alter egos battle out the characters' emotions.
Boogiepop Phantom is a mystery you have to try and piece together from different stories.
C: Money of Soul and Possibility Control has you bet your future and present in bizarre battles.
Casshern Sins is a singularly beautiful but very dark series about living, dying, and mortality.
Claymore is a dark fantasy in the vein of Berserk although it doesn't have as much going for it.
Death Note is a supernatural crime thriller between a powerful killer and the detective hunting him.
Death Parade is about judging people's souls in a space between death and the afterlife.
Ergo Proxy is a brooding cyberpunk about a ruined world, mysterious beings, and shotguns.
Fate/Zero is a prequel to FSN written by Gen Urobuchi and spectacularly animated by SHAFT.
Gunslinger Girl is about children trained as assassins to combat the mafia in Italy and their handlers.
Heaven's Memopad is about young investigators and touches on teen prostitution, suicide, drugs, etc.
Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade is PTSD-laden alternative history as a Little Red Riding Hood variant.
Kara no Kyoukai/Garden of Sinners is a movie series in the extended universe of FSN.
Madoka Magica is an obvious one from 2011, from your criteria you should definitely check it out.
Mardock Scramble is a great looking cyberpunk crime thriller animated by Gohands.
Monster is about a serial killer in Europe in the 90s and the brain surgeon being framed for his crimes.
RIN: Daughters of Mnemosyne is a supernatural thriller about immortals and a hidden magic.
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal is a dark samurai tragedy about Kenshin's origins.
Selector Infected WIXOSS is about girls wrapped up in a dark mystery around a card game.
Shin Sekai Yori/From the New World has some pretty unique horror vibes for most of its run.
Steins;Gate is a time-travel thriller about changing the past in an uncertain present.
Texhnolyze is cyberpunk about an isolated underground city descending into violence.
Tokyo Ghoul has parallels with Parasyte though the adaptation was rocky at times.

sorry about the delayed reply idk if you'll even read this flew to the east coast to see fam for a minute, but I have seen psycho pass. I liked it. It to me is pretty much an anime take on minority report so I feel like the general concept isn't that original but it had its own feel to it at the same time
