Bonus points if the protagonist is an adult, but it's not necessary. I'll watch any genre that has a decent story btw, so genre isn't a factor, just as long as there isn't any highschool life crap, i'm so tired of that. Thanks in advance

Planetes, but is hard to find legally. Here I like Golden Time, but that is college. Hmmmmmm. Spice and Wolf is great. Ai Yori Aoshi which is another college one. Listen to Me Girls I am Your Father is another college one, but deals with a college student adopting his nieces after the parents are lost in a plane crash. One last one I really like is: I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job. AKA Yushba. All these are more adult based and not high school based. Hope this helped.
