I'd prefer these to either be on Crunchyroll, Netflix or Hulu. Please only recommend animes not on one of those if it's especially good.

Animes like Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop and Neon Genesis Evangalion all fit this.

Thank you You guys haven't failed me yet as far as recommendations!

It sounds like you'd really enjoy Ergo Proxy, Steins;Gate, Welcome to the NHK along with Tatami Galaxy maybe. And if you're looking for something more thought provoking then I recommend Angels Egg. Also Psycho Pass is another option though it might not be so strong in existentialism. Lastly I recommend the Kara no Kyoukai series, it's a supernatural series of movies made by Ufotable, (So you know it looks good). Kara no Kyoukai can't be found on Crunchyroll, Netflix, nor Hulu. In fact I'm not sure where you can find the series online (legally), But I highly recommend you look into it.

I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

It's possible this will be too mundane for your tastes, but Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju is for adults, and very, very good. Give it a try.

I absolutely agree with Steins; Gate (Hulu), Serial Experiments Lain (Hulu), and Monster (one of the best... if you can find it)

Other action/adventure series:
Gargantia of the Verderous Planet (CR)
Vandread (Hulu)
Trigun (Hulu)
Batooom (CR)
Ghost in the Shell (older series are on Hulu; newest series is on Netflix)


There are also several other shows about teenagers finding themselves in a fairly brutal, adult world and dealing with adult problems:
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood (Hulu)
Eureka Seven (Hulu)
Kaze no Stigma (Hulu)

You might enjoy Reign: The Conqueror but I'm not sure whether it's available on the networks you prefer.

Don't let the beginning fool you. Shit gets real dark midway through.
