Hi, I've loved anime since the days of DBZ and the original Sailor Moon, and it's given me a lot of enjoyment over the years. Recently, however, I just can't seem to get into it anymore and this is mostly because most of what I see looks like it's for early to mid teens, which I haven't been for several years. You get some gems, but for the most part the story revolves around typical over the top shonen tropes. Even Seinen anime often seem very childish to me.

For example, I recently watched the netflix anime Knights of Sidonia, which was just the sort of thing I like... Besides the random talking one-armed space-bear chef. WHY?! What purpose does this character serve?! They never even give a shadow of an explaination as to WTF this gorram BEAR is doing on this spaceship. Things like this really bother me, and it's bloody EVERYWHERE.

TL:DR : I'm looking for anime meant for older viewers that doesn't have random zainy crap in it. I like psychological thrillers, fantasy and sci-fi, though good luck finding fantasy that isn't shonen ... Also, while I love a good romance plot, I'm not really into Ecchi. If I wanted to watch softcore porn I'd just watch some softcore porn....

Stuff like: Ergo Proxy, Ghost in the shell, Lain, Steins Gate, Samurai Champloo, 13 kingdoms, etc.

Sounds like you need a serious dose of Berserk. Go read the manga. It's wonderful.
