Aranneas

Two character-driven shows with a variety of higly random plot elements, some situational comedy, and a shared infatuation with the concept of fate (though they play with it in different ways and arrive at very different conclusions).

Demonbane TV

In both series, Okabe and Kurou start out as complete losers but their life changes after meeting an extremely intelligent tsundere, whom they grow attached too. As events occur, both guys become obssesed with trying to beat the impossible odds they face and defy fate.

Demonbane is much more action and fantasy based, while Steins;Gate is more suspensful and has plenty of scientific talks. Both series are also based on a visual novel by the same company but while Steins;Gate received an excellent adaption, Demonbane's adaption is rushed. If you enjoyed Demonbane, you should watch S;G and Demonbane can be pretty enjoyable if you set your expectations low.

Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".

Steins;Gate and Ergo Proxy are alike in that they are both psychological and deal with inner conflict as well as memories. Ergo Proxy is a little more serious and very stylized while Steins;Gate is more comedic but still equally mind blowing.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...

Both of these anime deal with a particular (pseudo)science: In FMA, it's alchemy and in Steins;Gate it's time travel.  A theme that runs through both of these series is the ethics of a scientist.  Whether it be human transmutation or altering the past, these anime asks questions about the extent to which a scientist is morally allowed to toy with other's lives and play with fate.  The protagonists of both series are rather unusual in their professions and attempt to rectify a mistake of the past from their own foolishness that cost them something dear but it looks to be an impossible mission or at least, an uphill battle with some amount of body horror (jellyman and chimeras D:).
