Is there any anime similar to Monster and Planetes? In design and maturity, something that is missing the typical anime cliches and poor character design. I especially liked Planetes because even while it was futuristic fiction, it was still realistic. Monster had also amazing characters and an excellent, if a bit too slow, story. The ending was a bit disappointing, though. Especially Johan's last words, which meant shit.

Paranoia Agent was another show I enjoyed, mostly because it occasionally had some really clever story elements.
