View Full Version : Anime with a very intelligent plot?
I'll suggest Mushi-shi and Haibane Renmei.
Dont know about you other guys, but I think RahXephon had a very intelligent plot. Had to watch it a second time to fully understand all the symbolism, not that I minded, as its a very good show. This may not be what you're after, but I think its worth a shot...
i guess Darker Than Black would fit your criteria
i dunno how similar these are to the shows you listed but:
serial experiments lain
If a show like Lain is one with an 'intelligent plot', then I suppose Dennou Coil is right up your alley. This is a sci-fi show that envisions a future where the internet takes on an almost physical form with the widespread use of 'dennou glasses' that allows a user to interact with a virtual world that is overlaid on the real world. Some episodes feel like something out of a Studio Ghibli production.
I agree, you definitely need to take a look at Ghost in the Shell, if you haven't already.
Noein. How many anime have you seen that explores the 'many worlds' theory? Definitely intelligent, and on top of many other things, it's a great series.
I say Ghost Hunt. It's slow at the beginning, but you'll like it once you're through with it.
The first two anime that came to my mind are Bokurano (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=7213) and Ergo Proxy (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=5115) - both are very good series with some psychological drama elements
No, not Ergo Proxy. The pretend to be intelligent anime.... this anime is slow.....
I personally thought Fantastic Children had a very intelligent plot, in the sense that it slowly built up till the ultimate climax in the end
Also try 12 Kingdoms and Spiral
