If you're looking for anime similar to The Perfect Insider, you might like these titles.
Between August and October, 1952, a series of unusual crimes takes place in Musashino and Mitaka: the attempted murder of 14-year-old Kanako Yuzuki, Kanako's abduction from the strange research "hospital" where she was recovering, then abductions of other girls, followed by their severed limbs in custom-fitted boxes being placed in surrounding towns. News editor Morihiko Toriguchi and crime fiction writer Tatsumi Sekiguchi investigate with the help of onmyōji Akihiko Chūzenji.
Both are slow-paced, exposition-heavy mystery shows which follow the investigation of a gruesome murder case. Fans of one should like the other.
These two animes complement each other perfectly. The main character fully empathizes with the logic of the culprit and this is what helps them to understand the reasons behind the murder. The body in this stories is also presented as a woman without her limbs, who wants to dissapear from her reality and has a forbidden love, with the aesthetic of a yamato nadeshiko (long dark hair, pale skin, almost like a doll).
In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they're considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl's judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.
Both have elements of mystery, crime, suspense and psychology. The overall feeling of both series is rather dark. While PsychoPass takes the fururistic approach, Subety ga F ni Naru has a more realistic setting while focusing on the darker sides of human nature.
Both try to explain the murders that take place in the story from a neutral and heavily psycological point of view, avoiding the good-bad implications. The main character is able to abstract him/herself from the murders and how they are commited.
Satoru Fujinuma is a reclusive part-timer with no plans for the future. What sets him apart from the other slackers in his town is an involuntary time travel ability that allows him to jump back several seconds in time in order to prevent accidents and even deaths. As incidents around town begin reminding Satoru of a childhood trauma he'd sooner forget, he finally begins to question what caused his ability to surface and whether or not it's powerful enough to change the past.
There's a murder and main characters try to solve the mystery behind it. Lots of questions, tensity, dark world atmosphere, similar animation.
Perfect Insider and Erased are very much alike and enough that, the first show I thought about that was similar to Perfect Insider after watching a few episodes was Erased. Both shows center around murder and a serial killer and the incidents trace back to the past of 10 or more years back.
