i like cyberpunk, giant robots, sci-fi, noir, decent fantasy, good writing or anything trippy in any genre. i like neon genesis evangelion, ghost in the shell, robotech, gundam, blood, perfect blue, etc.
i don't like stories involving dorky high school students, i don't care about preteens finding love or discovering their sexuality.
i've already know about and own every miyazaki film.
what's good that i should check out? i feel like there's probably a lot of stuff i don't know about.
A few that I've watched fairly recently - I think all are available on Netflix/Hulu.
Knights of Sidonia
Sword Art Online
Attack on Titan
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet
Cowboy bebop (epic)
Neon genesis evangellion (as you already said!)
Full metal alchemist (not the recent one on Netflix, the older series)
You might like trigun too!
for me Furi Kuri is the best animated thing ever, even some mentors at animationmentor used some clips of it to teach animation.
its kinda high-school-ish thing, but is very trippy and funny...and use a lot of animation techniques, its only 6 episodes long, and its kind of a parody to Evangelion.
I also love One Piece, but its an endless number of episodes, I like the first 100's tho...
i love all the old late 80s stuff. it's a decent sized list. definatelt find something that appeals to you in here.
ninja scroll, sure you've seen it
aeon flux tv show
always loved this one^
and if if it isn't too dumb for ya check out fist of the north star the tv show. granted, it's pretty dumb. i watched hundreds of hours of it when i was younger
AKIRA... Hands down.
Yes, it's obvious choice... but its my Blade Runner of animation. It totally blew my mind and changed so many things for me, i was never the same after that first viewing. GITS was a close second.
...Oh watch Space Dandy... Shit is awesome!
- ha, space dandy looks greatscarabin
- Gotta read the akira books. I got all six. So much iller than than the movie.gilgamush
- I got the books right after and yes it's better but it's 6 books versus 1 movie... and i think it did a great job.necromation

oh...KILL la KILL that shit is bonkers and funny!
I love that there's so much scifi anime, but I can't stand gaspy teenager drama.
A few recommendations from when I used to watch anime:
Patlabor movies are good. Good dialog, not too silly
You mentioned GITS but didn't say if it was just the movie so here's the series which is also good:
Finally there's also Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040
It reminded me a lot of Evanglion even through I think it might have been a little more light hearted in the beginning but then started getting pretty dark a little ways in.
