Some have already been posted but I'll repeat post. Can't recall if some of these are 100% adults 100% of the time. Also, many shows I have yet to see so do not know what else is out here re characters...

Monster (probably the best one)

Black Lagoon (good bad ass show)

The Tatami Galaxy (great job poking fun at collegian expectations vs. reality though 19 yr olds are still kids??).

Silver Spoon: college life subdued

Death Parade (1 character is a child-like fan girl who plays the game with her music idol) I think it's episode 6. I've rewatched it several times. Initially I loathed her character but her revelations during the tribulations were sincere and heart-felt and it's become 1 of my fav episodes in the series.

Cowboy Bebop (yea, Radical Edward is a kid though I thought she helped the show somewhat)

Planetes (great show: wish it would get a BD release. One of few series that portrays a CEO as an venturesome entrepreneur trying to do something constructive versus usual type casting as greedy SOB thinking only of himself. Thought portrayal of government minions was decent (aka movie Brazil directed by Terry Gilliam)). Main character is either HS senior age or lesser though, can't recall.

Speed Grapher (not for the faint of heart: truly bad ass show about sex trafficking, drugs, human condition of elites versus lesser men/women as encountered / witnessed by main character, a veteran news correspondent. Unlike other shows the bosses involved in illicit affairs are quite believable and actually do care about their employees. The cops come across as part psychotic (a la Psycho Pass which is damn fine show btw). Sex sells, knows no boundaries be you "good" or badass. Wish this show would get a BD (won't hold my breath). Really do like this show though topic is dodgy.

Psycho Pass: already posted. Similar theme to movie "Minority Report". Great series.

Trigun: already posted.

Planetarian: dystopian 5 episode show about war, collateral damage. Question: Is AI character to be treated as a kid account her appearance?

Ghost in the Shell series

Tokyo Godfathers: Satoshi Kon work about 3 derelicts who find a baby on Christmas Eve and set out to find the parents

KADO: the Right Answer (Spring 2017) Earth negotiates with intelligent alien

Sakura Quest: already posted. Main characters are adults though there is a kid or 2 featured in series

Drifters: similar to Hellsing: gore fest

Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju: story teller series (though players introduced to continue the art do have flashbacks as kids)

She and her Cat: can't recall age of cat caregiver

The Perfect Insider: already posted

Space Brothers: good study of how to prepare for a job interview. Good series though fraught with flashbacks of childhood memories

Mushi-Shi: posted already

Golden Time: college age, right?

Dead Leaves: 51 minute movie about 2 sociopaths. One of my favs. Makes Deadman Wonderland look like the kiddie pond

Sparrow's Hotel: short series about wannabe ninja assassin working at a hotel. Reminiscent of Jim Jarmusch movies

Maoyu: humans vs demons

Humanity has Declined: can't recall age of mediator

Natsuyuki Rendevous: florist and hired man (age?) love story though florist is a widow. Study of repressed memories

Polar Bear Cafe: people are adults, animals' ages vary. Terrific series if you like wry sense of wit (anime version of TV sitcom Cheers)

Lupin

Recovery of a MMO Junkie: already mentioned. Absolutely love this series so far.

Expelled From Paradise: movie: female protagonist is a 23-yr achiever compressed in a 16-yr AI body. Good adult show.

Okay, Trigun, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, Gate, Log Horizon, Konosuba, Restaurant from Another World,

My list basically goes on and on to almost any anime that isn't about high schoolers or children because I gone and grown up but still want to watch series about people like me.

Wait does cowboy bebop count even tho there's Ed???


Yeah,I thought about that but came to the conclusion that it didn't matter.First,I don't know if the op meant all adult main cast, all adult main & supporting cast,or as the title implies, all characters that appear in the show are adult.Also,the op mentioned recovery of an mmo junkie,which has a college student that could be 17.Also,dose op mean adult as in 18 & over,or later in life?The more I thought about it, the farther I sunk into insanity.I decided to interpret this as Core characters.I love ed, but she's not a main focus of the show.Imo,spike,jet and Faye are.So I decided I could include cowboy bebop in the list.

Man I must have really bad memory to have already forgotten some of these... A lot of the time I just watch something and then forget.

I remember watching part of Speed Grapher until the anime club I went to stopped showing the fansub. Since it's on CR now I'll have to pick it up again (I'll have to start over since I've forgotten the plot)

and yes, Black Lagoon was badass- much of the badassery was thanks to Revy and her shit attitude lol

Yeah, but now just TRY and get a copy of Viz's final Maison sub/dub DVD Boxset 8 on Amazon...
It's considered to be the Holy Grail of all anime on US disk.

(Wanna borrow my copy? )


LOL if you're actually serious about loaning me those I'm really honored that you'd trust me that much

I haven't watched MI in.... forever. I used to run one of those old MI fan websites (hey it was actually a neat one- It used FRAMES to sync screencaps of each episode with little one-line episode summaries) and my tapes are sitting in a big box in the garage.

For the missing tape Arctic didn't send me, I bought a VHS from Viz

Wait, there are animes out there with adult characters in them? I think the oldest anyone (human) in any anime I've ever seen is around 17 or so...

Baccano! is the only one that comes to mind at the moment. And Czeslaw is technically an adult in kid's body since he's immortal so that still counts.
