Good examples of science fiction in anime?

I'm in search of anime that could stand on its own as a decent work of science fiction (especially cyberpunk, hard scifi, or other intelligent speculative fiction). I've had friends recommend me many anime series that would loosely fall under the scifi category. I am rather picky, though, and it see...

Re: Therion?

Yeah, I really liked Beyond Sanctorum and their demo tracks. As for everything that came afterwards, mixing in symphonic elements was a potentially good idea, but I think the results are kind of a mixed bag. Still fairly decent material, though.

You should watch the German dub just for kicks. Unintentional hilarity ensues.

Re: Goth band?

Hmm... Well, I'm not crazy about goth culture, but I do like some of the arts and music associated with it, to an extent. A few (mostly darkwave) bands to possibly check out: L'âme Immortelle The Frozen Autumn The Crüxshadows Clan of Xymox Tristesse de la Lune Diary of Dreams In Strict Confidence Ra...

Re: 300.

Sparta was a city-state of Greece, so you're both right.

Re: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Confusing? You say that like it's a bad thing. The anachronous storytelling and general what-the-****ery is part of what makes it so awesome.

There's a reason they're arranged that way; watch them in their intended order, and then watch them chronologically, and you'll see why.

Re: Elder Scrolls: Oblivion

One of the best games I've ever played. It does have a few flaws and shortcomings, but hey, that's what the mod community is for. I have about 240-something mods running at the moment, and the game is much more enjoyable than it was out of the box. And since we're on the subject, anyone else want to...

Re: Industrial, anyone?

Yeah, I suppose industrial music in the strictest sense is stuff like Throbbing Gristle, FLA, etc.; but there are so many more recent offshoots of the genre, most of which can be hard to distinguish from each other, so it's usually easier to just classify them all under a loose definition of "i...

Mmm, nice list, CRISis. What bands do the rest of you listen to?

And APB is futurepop/synthpop/EBM-ish, which is sorta related. >_>

Re: Anyone here like older music?

Ehh, I like baroque and classical, and a number of artists from the 80s/early 90s, but there are very few artists from the 50s, 60s, or 70s that I'd listen to voluntarily. Not to say it's bad music, it's just not my taste.
