Cyberpunk?

Can anyone suggest some good cyberpunk anime to watch?

I know there's Ghost in the Shell (already seen everything out except for the SAC movie), but is there anything else good out there?

I think these are cyberpunk:

Gunnm
Serial Experiments Lain
Texhnolyze

Gunnm is pretty good, but short. Lain is very good. Texhnolyze is interesting, but extremely depressing.

I don't see Ergo Proxy listed yet.

My personal favorite is Serial Experiments Lain, which the above poster already recommended. If you try that and end up liking it, check out Boogiepop Phantom.

Akira is a classic cyberpunk anime.

Yeah definately Serial Experiments Lain, but that show will mess with your head.

You could try watching Eureka 7. Dunno if that's what you call cyberpunk though. Mmm, let me see....watch also Burst Angel.

Ah! not cyberpunk! I am almost 300% positive

err... same with demonbane and the third... havent seen the others...

but maybe I am wrong... I dunno, doesn't cyberpunk have to be you know... gritty? I dont know if thats the right word.

Yes, that's the right word. Cyberpunk is characterized by the contrast between high technology and low moral fabric. Sort of like a science fiction equivalent to the spaghetti western or film noir. Well, that's the theory anyway. That being said, I believe the Third is probably close enough to get the idea of what he's looking for. Serial Experiments Lain and Ergo Proxy are much more like what you're looking for though. Chrono Crusade could probably be considered Steampunk - though it's occult side overshadows it.
