Sadly, few TV anime (longer than 6 episodes, at least) are that good to buy. Most of them don't get the Evangelion treatment when brought over.
But the series you've picked out are really good choices. Go with those for now.
Ghost in the Shell has a TV series, two season's worth even (GitS: Stand Alone Complex, and GitS:SAC 2nd Gig) that you should look into.
Also, keep an eye out for the Full Metal Panic! series. The first season was by Gonzo, the second (Fumoffu!) and third (FMP: The Second Raid) seasons were by Kyoto Animation. I recommend them.
Also recommended: Vandred (2 seasons, called First and Second Stage respectively), Black Lagoon (2 seasons also), and Samurai Champloo.
