Looking for manga like Blame! or GitS

After recently rereading the Ghost in the Shell and Blame! manga series, I'm wondering if there's anything new (or old) in that style / theme.
Note that I'm looking for manga not anime (can't watch anime on train)

thx in advance

An obvious recommendation is GUNNM and GUNNM: Last Order. (the latter is a sequel that throws out the lame ending of the first manga, pretending like certain things never happened.. which is a very good thing imho lol)

I also want to recommend Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou even though the tone is really different from anything mention so far (no fighting/action at all). Similar themes though; what it means to be human and all that.

I read that one immediately after BLAME! and were instantly drawn in.

Biomega

From the author of Blame!

Abara

Same goes for this.

And for Zeb-Noid.

Dragon head

One of the best catastrophe manga I've ever read.

Freesia

I loved the psychological components here.

White Rain

Great Psychological Oneshot, though it is a pity this didn't get more chapters.

Thx for the suggestions, I think I'll go for Gantz and Abara for now.
@Jedinat: YKK is indeed a lovely manga series which I've allready read a while ago and is one of my personal favorites, got to love Alpha and the totally relaxed atmosphere in YKK
