One example of a great anime set in a dystopian future is Pyscho-Pass, a crime thriller that depicts an authoritarian society where every citizen's mental state is monitored. Similar to The Minority Report, it features a bureau of investigation that's given oversight of this information, which it uses to prevent crimes from happening before they do.
