The last time I asked for recommendations on here I got some GREAT responses so here goes again.

This time around I am looking for anime with some older MCs and protagonists. People like the MC in GATE. I tend to prefer Rom/Com and Action/Fantasy anime, but any genre will do (other than yaoi/yuri/hentai )

As an older anime fan, turning even older tomorrow, I would like to see some older characters getting into mischief. Almost everything I have watched in my queue lately (minus a few shows from the current season like GATE and Gangsta) has featured highschool and highschoolers/teenagers.

Anyways i hope my request makes at least a little sense and i look forward to what people have as suggestions for me.

I also am older just watched this classic War on Geminar with Tenchi was great and each episode is 42 minutes like the old days
Another older anime is Airgear has good beats and your delinquent boy surrounded by sisters no parents lots of nudity cause before censorship

By the time I'm posting this hopefully I can wish you a very happy birthday on time and not early or belated .If I'm getting right what you prefer, you're looking for rom-coms with older than High-school (adult or at least on the way there) MCs. I hope I'm right. Here on Crunchy there are a few possibilities. Hopefully some of these fit what you're looking for as they're all post-HS shows.

Monster Musume Everyday Life (Guy home-sitting monster girls, with intent to marry)
Servant x Service (government workers in love)
Wagnaria/Working (The crew/new family working at a restaurant)
Plastic Memories (warning: a bit of tragedy but mostly cute funny romantic moments getting there)
I can't Understand What My Husband is Saying (cute says it all)
Denki-Gai (Couples forming in a manga shoppe)
Rail Wars (Rail security workers getting into romantic mischief)
Lupin the 3rd (Lupin and Fujiko Mine, the classic couple is still at it)

Thank you. Yeah I tried not to mention current season as I am watching most of the shows in Summer 2015. Shows like Plastic Memories, Monster Musume, GATE, etc. are what got me wanting more shows like this. You would be correct in your assumptions however. I have I can't understand What my Husband is Saying in my queue, but I shall add the rest you mentioned. Oh and yeah I've seen Lupin the 3rd as well. I forget about it and shows like Cowboy Bebop since they were so long ago for me :-P[

Have you tried Welcome to the NHK? It's an incredible anime.Also, Speed Grapher, Darker than Black, Ergo proxy are a few other great shows with adult characters.
Posted 8/21/15 , edited 8/21/15
obligatory Black Lagoon & Samurai Champloo

I second Welcome to the NHK, tho it can be a downer at times. I only scanned over the other recs but did anyone mention Golden Time for romcoms?..if not then Golden Time.

Giant Killing is pretty cool also if you don't mind sports (soccer) anime, since it's one of the few that doesn't involve h.s sports.

Lupin isn't as long ago as you thought . The new show debuted in France, I've heard, and is supposedly debuting in Japan next season .



It's gonna be 26 episodes .
