I can't think of many sci-fi dramas, but there are three others that come to mind. One of them is still being subbed, but it's worth waiting for if you don't do raws.
Bokura no Yuuki: Miman Toshi
-- A city is closed off after a major earthquake makes the area unsafe, but two teens sneaking in to help friends and strangers discover that the news story is a front. All the adults have mysteriously died, and the military is keeping the remaining children and teens quarantined there like animals while covering up the truth about the incident.
Kimi to Ita Mirai no Tame ni ~ I'll Be Back
(still being subbed, but the first ep is available subbed already)-- A college student suddenly feeling intense chest pain collapses on New Years Eve, only to wake up four years in his past. Through multiple lives he can never make it past that same moment. Beyond trying to fix his own life, he also must contend with the why this is happening to him, and the other lives that repeatedly intersect with his.
Suany's blog with sub updates:

(has a bit of nudity in the first episode) -- Two genetically engineered twins find themselves at the center of a conspiracy around a deadly man-made virus that could be used to kill billions of people. How is this connected to the secrets from their past, and will Sei's enhanced abilities be enough to save the people he loves?
On the borderline of scifi:
is only partly subbed. It's really a mystery/comedy series, but it does have timeslipping as a central aspect to the plot, as the main character timeslips when she encounters strong feelings left behind from someone who has died. (Kinda like True Calling
in that respect.) So I'd say it has scifi aspects, despite the fact that I don't consider it as scifi as Long Love Letter
. Fun show if you like comedy/mystery, but if you're just looking for a "serious" scifi drama it wouldn't suit.
While Proposal Daisakusen
has timeslipping, it's really more fantasy/comedy/romance than scifi. It doesn't have any world changing consequences or sections to make you think like Long Love Letter
or Kimi to Ita Mirai no Tame ni
do. And I wasn't that fond of the second half of the series or the main romance, though I liked the special better. Again, it's not got the serious scifi vibe... any drama with Yamapi doing the "Hallelujah Chance" pose can't be taken too seriously.
