Magic meets Science

OK, i won't talk too much since my english is very awkward sounding. Recently i've been fascinated by an awesome anime called Toaru Majutsu no Index with awesome premise where science and magic collide each other. I've watched several anime with magic vs magic or science vs science as the main premise yet those two seems quite boring to me as the time goes on, that's why i'm gonna watch something new with those two premise combined into one, that is magic vs science.

I'm still an anime-virgin, so i'm still quite confused to search for another titles with such premise. Can anyone help me please?

Modern Magic Made Simple (Yoku Wakaru Gendai Maho) seems to fit your request.

Been wanting to look for something siimilar as well. Haven't found anything as of yet that has the sci fi vs fantasy that you're looking for, but I did run across a light novel series called Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (The Poor Performing Student of a Magic High School) on Baka Tsuki where magic is used as a science and technology. Its got itself a manga adaption but I'm hoping that an anime adaption get announced sometime soon in the future. So far it seems to have some fairly good chances of it happening if you ask me.

If you don't mind gore and bunch of killing you could try Umineko no Naku Koro ni.

It is not exactly magic VS science but main theme is the following.

Witch VS Human

Basically bunch of people get stuck in a mansion where series of murders break out. All of them are done using magic and MC human has to prove that all of those killings could be done by human.

One possibility might be Mouryou no Hako where it is thought that some horrible murders are the result of supernatural forces and perhaps the work of a cult. Science and the supernatural also have an encounter in Ghost Hound with a little psychiatry thrown in for good measure. Another cult, too.

You might like Mahou Tsukai Tai, a very cute series about a high school club that uses magic to combat aliens . It's cute and silly but with a few decent battle scenes throughout.

While it doesn't feature a strong disparity or conflict between science and magic, Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto and it's sequel are nice series that focuses on the interaction between magic and everyday life.

Also, while confined more to a magic world, there is a definite science to the magic of Mahou Shoujo Tai Arusu that might suit your purposes.

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun is a side story with Misaka...You said you were an 'Anime-Virgin' I figured you might not have known there was more. Plus I have heard through the grapevine that they are putting out a second season of!

What about Fullmetal Alchemist? The premise of this series is alchemy, which is basically a branch of science and magic. The plot and story are so awesome that you won't stop watching it until the very last episode.

The upcoming January show Vivid Red Operation is also something you're looking for, though it doesn't have much hints about the plot.
