3D animation student at Academy of Art University.

Friendly neighborhood rental video store guru.

Movie freak.

I want stuff that's intense, mature, and out of this world. I do not need a babysitter, and I am not interested in insipid giggly crap. Hellsing: good, Rosario Vampire: BAD. Sex is fine, great, wonderful-- just keep Chobits the frikkin hell away from me. Funny is great too; Excel Saga, Irresponsible Captain Tylor or Photon or even This Is Greenwood, I can deal with... but Great Teacher Onizuka? There's only so much pedophilia and panties I can take. I demand explosions, blood, PLOT, and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, that's the good shit. If you come into my video store and ask me for a romantic comedy the only answer I can come up with is Princess Bride, and if you think Dark Crystal is too scary for your kids.... I can't help you.

'I want stuff that's mature, intense, and out of this world' and your favourite genre is sci-fi.

Is there a reason you haven't yet seen Legend of the Galactic Heroes? My God, and Planetes! Monster, though a thriller, should be right up your alley, now that I think about it. And for something potently nuanced and delicate, try Mushishi.

I don't ordinarily go around dropping recommendations, but after seeing your list, I believe our tastes and expectations of anime are similar. At least, I often wish someone had told me of LOTGH and Monster much, much earlier in my fan life.
