I'm new to crunchyroll and to Anime in general. I'm not quite sure what to watch. Iv'e started watching " Space Brothers " which i'm enjoying and was wondering what else i could watch on here if anyone could recommend anything ?

I'm open to any suggestions but as i'm an oldie ( 27 ) i was hoping someone could point out any good anime targeted for older folks ?

Iv'e always liked Akira , Perfect Blue, Ninja Scrolls, that kind of thing. If that helps. Thanks

Welcome to Crunchyroll and to Anime in all, it's kind of an odd place to end up at but really fun once you know your way around. However allow me to be the first to laugh at you and get that out of the way HAHAHHAHA, see now you're set, nor are you old, you're probably right in the high range of the demographic center...there's old people out here for sure.

AS to what you might enjoy, based on what you posted you might want to find Ghost in the Shell and Karas. Here on Crunchyroll just start playing around...skim the series and see what catches your fancy, there's no law saying you have to watch the whole series. There's not exactly a lot of the dark and gritty 90's style here, but you can find some stuff...Chaika the Coffin Princess has some very odd stuff going on and looks gorgeous, Sunday without God is another with the hidden dark streak. But don't take my word for it, look around and see what you like.

And again, welcome!

Hi, and welcome!

Unfortunately, I have to close this.. the best place to ask for suggestions is over at http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-7173/recommend-me-an-anime-read-first-post - pretty much post what you had here in that thread, and you'll probably get some great suggestions!

I also closed your thread over at http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-855717/anime-for-older-folks- for the same reason, and also because dupes are disallowed, sorry again!
