Both Monster and Psycho-Pass are psychological mystery thrillers were the main male protagonist is after a ghost murder. No one believes in the existence of mastermind serial killer until late.
The lead killers both kill as a third party using others to do their dirty work for excitement excitement. Furthermore they see nothing wrong in their ways are are in essence pure heart-ed but evil in soul. You can judge them by their presence.
Uncommon seinen anime in detective genre with dark mysterous atmosphere. Characters are interesting and psychologically realistic. Protagonist is forced to make difficult choices that are beyond good and evil. In both anime there is an antogonist who tries to fulfil his vile plans and fights either with the main character or with entire society itself.
Psycho-Pass and Monster both ask and present difficult questions to their viewers and reward them through effortless storytelling and admirable characters. The rules and expectations of society, the darkness that resides inside of humans, the unpredictability of individuals, the corrupt nature of those that lead the masses—all of these are brought to the forefront of these anime and are intriguingly approached through intellectual plots.
Situation and history, action and result, no matter how I looked at it, I could not personally decide whether or not either side was ever truly right or wrong. That thin line between the two is my favorite kind of conclusion. At
1- Both plots contains Psychopath - no Conscience and very intelligent puppet master.
2- Each episode reveals more background story of the main characters.
3- Well written and interesting to watch.
The main malefactors seem alike, IMHO. They both have a global plan and ruin a lot of lives without any doubts. They both prefer to play with people's psychology. I hate both Johan and Makishima.
Both series are also serious, clever and for adults only.

Both shows have a really similar feel with a "ghost antagonist" being hunted down.
