Hmmm yesss thats what i mean 

Steins gate, FMA and code geasse 

Good options so far

 

If you've watched the 3 you mentioned so far, and want Psychological Thriller with Mind Games - 

 

1) There is an old Anime called Monster. It's a 2004 anime. It's the absolute best psychological thriller there is. I would highly recommend you to watch this. It's also a 74 episode anime, so it will last you a while.

 

It also has one of the best villains in the psychological thriller genre period. If you love mind games, and intelligence plays - this is the anime for you. No super powers, robots or anything else though. The mind is the only weapon.

Summary from MyAnimeList.com:

 

Dr. Kenzou Tenma, an elite neurosurgeon recently engaged to his hospital director's daughter, is well on his way to ascending the hospital hierarchy. That is until one night, a seemingly small event changes Dr. Tenma's life forever. While preparing to perform surgery on someone, he gets a call from the hospital director telling him to switch patients and instead perform life-saving brain surgery on a famous performer. His fellow doctors, fiancée, and the hospital director applaud his accomplishment; but because of the switch, a poor immigrant worker is dead, causing Dr. Tenma to have a crisis of conscience.

So when a similar situation arises, Dr. Tenma stands his ground and chooses to perform surgery on the young boy Johan Liebert instead of the town's mayor. Unfortunately, this choice leads to serious ramifications for Dr. Tenma—losing his social standing being one of them. However, with the mysterious death of the director and two other doctors, Dr. Tenma's position is restored. With no evidence to convict him, he is released and goes on to attain the position of hospital director.

Nine years later when Dr. Tenma saves the life of a criminal, his past comes back to haunt him—once again, he comes face to face with the monster he operated on. He must now embark on a quest of pursuit to make amends for the havoc spread by the one he saved.

2) Perfect Blue: If you're fine with anime movies, then this is an amazing psychological thriller. This one is not like Code Geass or Death Note though. Instead of chess games, this one will f**k with your brain and leave you questioning what is real and what is not.

Summary from MyAnimeList.com

 

J-pop idol group CHAM! has spent the last two years entertaining its fans. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and CHAM! must see one of its members, Mima Kirigoe, leave the group to pursue her acting career. While Mima's choice is met with a mixed response, she hopes her fans will continue to support her.

However, Mima's life begins to change drastically after her departure from the group. Wanting to shed her pop-idol image, she takes on a role in a crime drama series, and her career as an actress gradually becomes more demanding and taxing for both Mima and her manager, Rumi Hidaka. To add to Mima's growing unease, an obsessed fan who is incapable of accepting that Mima has quit being an innocent idol, begins stalking her; a new anonymous website begins to impersonate her life with intricate detail; and CHAM! also appears to be doing better without her. One by one, each disturbing development drives Mima to become increasingly unhinged and unable to distinguish reality from fantasy.

I would highly recommend watching both if you're after psychological thrillers. They are literally the hallmarks of the genre, not just in anime, but in all media period.

Indian Crunchyroll is as good as nothing. Can't think of any must-watch anime on it. You absolutely NEED a VPN to even remotely make sense of paying for (or taking a friend's) a subscription.

Will do that 

thanks!
