i need help

as a teenager i watched a large amount of anime, but lost interest as i got older, however my appetite for anime never depreciated. i lost interest because i could not find anime that was aimed towards my demographic. i've decided to get back into anime having discovered seinen anime and manga.

where should i start? i'm both struggling to find the right material and finding too much material. i love the medium of anime, but really can't endure any teenage angst, high school drama... i just can't. sorry this is such an elementary request, but of the various image boards i have poked through, this seemed the best place to start my search.

Teenage angst and high school drama does indeed get old pretty quick.
Try death parade. It's currently airing and has none of that high school bullshit.

thanks bro, i'll hit it up

Teh Rei's best work.

And since she's married with a kid, she probably won't do any more roles like that for another 10-15 years.

Adding to the list: Mushishi, Baccano, Strike Witches, Gundam Unicorn, Sailor Moon Crystal, Log Horizon, Sengoku Basara, Kaiba, Ghost in the Shell, Tower of Druaga, Trapeze, Panty & Stocking, Milky Holmes, Last Exile, Heartcatch Pretty Cure, Un-Go.

A demographic alone isn't much to go by, genres are helpful, so I grabbed a bit of everything for that list.
>> No. 22369 [Edit]

I think as long as we just toss out names of anime without high school bullshit that would be good enough. People other than OP might find some good stuff too that way.

i watched kaiji, Serial Experiments Lain, ghost in the shell arise, and psycho pass recently and just started kill la kill.

>>22369
right on the money. i just don't want teen angst, i want something i can enjoy as an adult man. not saying though that i wont watch shows with young characters, i mean kill la kill is set in high school but is watchable for me because it is so satirical.

>>22368
thanks man, ill start looking into that list. in terms of genre, i'm down for anything. i'm in the mood for something a little more serious and dark, but like i said, am open to just about anything.

Could you stop with the Southpark pictures?

lain had plenty of high school drama & teen angst

>>22371

i guess i should have mentioned i've just watched the first season of kaiji, im three episodes into lain, seen just three of the four arise ovas, and finished the first season of psychopass. like i said, im starting my anime adventure and haven't been on it for long. i was told that lain was an anime masterpiece repeatedly from several sources so i decided to start it despite being set in highschool.

>>22374
thanks

>>22371
was wondering if this would piss somebody off. you like boondocks better?
>> No. 22392 [Edit]
>>22377
Sure you don't want to try some shoujo anime?
Fushigi Yuugi, Escaflowne, Sailor Moon?
>> No. 22403 [Edit]
..Your demographic? You can't enjoy things for what they are just because they aren't for your "demographic"? I feel sorry for you bud.

Seems like epic shows like South Park are right up your alley.
>> No. 22410 [Edit]
>>22403
In his defense, demographics is a good way to see if a series is like to be somethign you enjoy. For instance in many shoujo a large part of the appeal comes from ogling sexy men, which as a straight man obviously doesn't appeal to me.

i never said i would not watch anime falling into different demographics, i never said i only enjoy things that are aimed at my demographic, i simply mentioned that having discovered that there was anime directed toward adult men, such as myself, i realized that anime isn't just for children and teens.

there is no need to be rude, it makes you seem very petty and childish. not to mention your attack is based in a rather embarrassing misreading of what i wrote which makes you look stupid as well.

upvote this post if you think that the rules of this board should be updated to reflect that posting south park images are a felonious and bannable offense
>> No. 22424 [Edit]
>>22423
You're not alone in finding them annoying.
>> No. 22428 [Edit]
What in the hell do you mean by "upvote"?

Anyway, I agree with you that seeing those shitty pictures are somewhat offensive.

>>22424
You should probably just delete the thread since I think that it's just some idiot trying to troll. They could've just gone to 4shit and gotten faster responses, but here he is, posting awful pictures and not doing his own research somewhere far away from here with people like himself.

while the images might be annoying, deleting the thread would be going a bit far wouldn't it? Call me naive but it doesn't seem like trolling to me so much as someone wanting to see what TC's taste would be. I can probably find tons of places to ask for anime recommendations but I'm sure they'd just point me towards the same stuff they always do for everyone like a broken record (clannad, attack on titan, elfen lied, boku no pico etc ). So I can't blame a guy for wanting to ask on a place that has better taste than most other other places.

Ashita no Joe features a teenager, but its not in a school setting. It's amazing and you should give it a try.

i've been off this site for more than two years now and came back out of idle curiosity and found this old thread i made when i first came here.

i like the insight that a lot of the anime fans here have into shows and found many users have taste parallel to my own, but found the community to be somewhat toxic (if you don't follow wizard-chan rules here everyone loses their shit) so i decided to stop coming to this site and started looking for friendlier communities. i return here out of idle curiosity today for the first time in more than two years to find my thread reawakened from the dead. the level of coincidence is almost shocking.

i was laughing when i read this thread thinking how similar this situation was to my own, thinking someone else on the site was having the same problems as me when i first came here and realized, to my shock, this was my thread!

why did you drag this thread from its coffin?

>>31417
having watched 60 or so animes in the last two years i don't think there is any anime devoid of myopic teenage angst that i haven't either watched or know of and chose not to watch.

i like action anime. i like all genres, so if by some odd chance you have something to recommend that i haven't seen i will be truly delighted
