I think LAIN qualifies as cyberpunk. Its got similar themes as GOTS but from a different perspective. No action/explosions really though; its more like a Philip K Dick novel than an action piece. More a study in the ideas of cyberspace/artifical intelligence. Its certainly intelligent if thats what you are after. A cyberpunk Twin Peaks maybe? You watch it trying to suss out what is happening and even at the end... well I'll leave that for you to figure out. Challenging viewing and a complete mind---k.

Cybercity Oedo 808 is still one of my favourites... wish they'd make more episodes of that

Try some of the links on the Anime sticky or maybe do a bit of googling
