Is there any good new serious science-fiction anime? I get Otaku USA, but all I see lately is things like overly cute magical girls and supernatural stuff.
Actually that's been the trend in Japan for a bunch of recent years, and since what we get is what they get first...
At least Madoka is a serious sci-fi, if with little girls, and core ideas nicked from Evangelion.

Haven't watched much sci-fi anime, a few non-sf dramas I did watch and enjoy a lot (NHK, Kaiji), as the few I tried semi-randomly were lame (Macross Frontier, RahXephon), or I had no idea what was happening, for one reason or another (Lain, Ergo Proxy).

Little girl shows they do consistently well.
