Interesting Psychological Plot?

Hi! I thought I already posted, but I can't find the thread so I'm assuming that I have a memory problem...

Anyway... Can anybody recommend a psychological anime with a really really really good and complex plot? I really liked Higurashi, Umineko and Chaos;Head, so basically the kind of stuff that seems to make no sense Bishies are an added bonus

Thanks in advance!

Otherwise

Ergo Proxy

And if you like supernatural

Psychological anime with a really good and complex plot. No bishies, no idiot characters, no comedy.

ergo proxy isn't mecha. >.>; it's (very boring, Neal Stephenson levels of boring) postcyberpunk.

Oh no! I love Ergo Proxy, it's a good anime! In the same style, I prefer Ghost In The Shell BTW.

I think I'll have to point you in the direction of Witch Hunter Robin. It's a great anime with lots of supernatural qualities (also, the art is gorgeous IMO).
If you can stand the blood (and nudity) then also try Elfen Lied. I'm not a huge fan, but I know that a good majority of people who have watched it absolutely loved it.

It's a movie, but Perfect Blue might be worth a look if you're into psychological horror. Plot wise it's not as elaborate as Higurashi, but it does a great job at blurring the line between reality and fiction. Watching it feels like you're going insane like the lead character.

You might try Darker than Black. I have begun watching it recently, I think it could become one of my favorites. It has a good plot, and the story is unfolding quite nicely.

Surprised Death Note hasn't been mentioned yet. One of my all-time favorite anime.

Its explores more of the darker side of human psychology as well as human morals of right and wrong.

Paranoia Agent and Ghost Hound both sound like a great match for you.
