What do you mean with your poor describtion "serious animes"?
I imagine this what you are thinking right now, so i here is my definition and what I seek:

For me "serious animes" have a greater meaning. I take the example of Ghost in the Shell, the first movie treated philosophical problems and realy made me think about where live starts.
There are a lot of other interesting animes out there like Death note, the Hayao Miyazaki movies, the animatrix..... they all are in their own brilliant way deep and "more than meets the eye".....

So I would like you to recommend me more of these, but remember I am not interested in senseless Martiel Arts, Action or romance series even if some them might be realy good.

Thanks in advance!
(sorry for any possible spelling and or grammer mistake i am not that great with the english language)

You shall bow down to the epicness later, and you won't regret it.

Edit:
Oh crap, it got licensed?? Ahh, well. Try that anime, OP. Search it on Google or something.

I have two new anime that I would like to recommend that I have quite liked, both of which are still currently available here on CR.
The first one is called Ghost Hound and it was created by Shirow Masamune, who createdGhost in the Shell. It takes place in a small coastal village in Japan. It has a paranormal flavor to it, I quite liked it. Check it out and see what its about.

Secondly I like to recommend a title called Xam'd: Lost Memories. I just started watching it and think it is quite good. If you like Eureka Seven you'll like this one.

I terms of movies, I'd recommend Paprika, its one of my favorite titles from last year.

By the way, your English is fine.

Kino's Journey is philosophical. It shows the different aspects (both good and bad) of humanity.
Monster is an amazing show, very interesting show and multi-dimensional characters.
Mushishi, each episode has its own fascinating story.
Dennou Coil is a wonderful slice of life about children and the virtual world.
Gankutsuou is the remake of the Counte of Monte Cristo. A bit different, but still worth a watch.
Haibane Renmei
Serial Experiments Lain, you'll definately like it if you liked GITS. It's another sci-fi that deals with many themes, even theology.
Twin Spica, a serious story that may look childish but is about a girl trying to reach her dreams. It has many themes about children dealing with death and their identities.\

If you want more, then just ask.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes. There's nothing over the top, and no 'gifted people'. There's enough fleet battles to make it interesting though. A must-watch for people who have a hard-on for tactics, politics, and history.

Monster really is a great anime and it's serious from start to finish. No comedy, no romance, no martial arts, just all suspense and pyschological drama. Death Note should also be watched for sure. I just started watching Ergo Proxy and it seems pretty serious. Texhnolyze is "serious"ly disturbing but i haven't finished watching that one either. Trinity Blood has some comedy and action but it's pretty serious. I also like Hellsing Ultimate series. These anime are all pretty dark (think a lot of night scenes and creepy music) but they are pretty good at least to me. If I come across anymore, I'll get at you.

Someone already mentioned em but i really liked Kino's journey and Mushishi. They have no romance, almost no action, no mystery, no comedy, none of it. The thing about them is that it really gets you thinking at the end of the episode and I loved it all the way to the final episode.
