I spend more time than i should as an adult watching anime and I was hoping that someone here could give me ideas on new stuff watch. As the title suggest I'm looking for anime that's more themed around adults, 20+. I love all types of anime, but sometimes you just get tiered of watching 16 year olds make the same but slightly different mistakes over and over. O and when i say knew I mean new to me. You got something from the 90s that you thing is good let me know!

You are looking for seinen anime, well the thing is that I am on the same bus that you.
The usual thing that I recommend is search for movies, animes movies tend to have less those tropes that you mentioned.

You should check out more manga! I think seinen manga would be your best friend! There are tons of adult themed (20+) manga out there!

The anime Akagi its also a drama as well and both are on crunchyroll. Its about gambling though but the main character Akagi is the best gambler around almost a legend and puts his life on the line while gambling most of the time.
