Hey guys, I've watched some entry-level anime, Deathnote, FMA(+Brotherhood), Cowboy Bebop, Naruto(+shippuden), DBZ, Elfen Lied, Code Geass, FMP, Samurai Champloo, Afro Samurai, Bleach, One Piece and maybe a few others I can't remember
I'm looking for something a little more serious now, any suggestions?
More serious huh? Monster's pretty good, give that a go. A thriller about a doctor who choses to save the life of a child instead of the mayor, and... well, just watch it.
Planetes is a pretty great hard (realistic) sci-fi/slice of life about people clearing up space junk in low-earth orbit in the near future, gets pretty awesome and keeps it realistic in regards to how they live up there (ie momentum, gravity etc etc).
Uhh, what else. Perfect Blue is just a movie but it's a fantastic psychological thriller. Think Black Swan but thirteen years earlier.
If you're up for something long, Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a grand space opera depicting a war between the empire + rebels from both sides, it's hard to get over just how glorious it is but just fucking watch it.
Gunbuster is one of my favourite OVAs, it's gainax (evangelion, flcl, gurren lagann)'s first anime afaik, absolutely superb. 6 long episodes.
In fact since you've listed none of those, watch Neon Genesis Envagelion (psychological mecha), FLCL (slice of life comedy action thing), and gurren lagann (comedy/mecha).
If you want something a bit slower and more chilled, watch Mushishi, it's a laid back anime about a spiritual doctor. Great shit right there.
That'll do for the moment.
