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...
Magic girls are a specific genre of japanese children's fiction that has been around for decades. Madoka was a recent attempt at selling it for adult audiences much like what Eva did for mech.

The more recent trends is trying to insert a high school setting in everything such as Gundam AGE.
