man, i've been aching for a mature anime for about 2 and a half years now. Everything people seem to be watching is Clannad or The Melancholy of Whatsherface.

Finally, a mature anime for adults. We need more of these along with the Cowboy Bebops, Black Lagoons, Claymores. More!

There are actually a number of mature series around. At least one airs every season. If you've really been waiting years for it, then you haven't been looking very hard. :\

Quoted for truth. I'm also mature enough to watch any type of genre and understand the appeal it has towards its targeted fan base.

Ive seen all the other "good" ones. The last decent, mature, anime that I watched was Elfen Lied.

Im just saying that the non-kiddy stuff that is actually GOOD is rare.

This probably won't go down very well but.... No way was death note for a mature audience, Its just a shonen trying to act like a seinen (Not to say i didn't like it).

funkpanda, By adult do you mean graphic? because there are alot of great adult anime that have little/no violence in them.

Mnemosyne looks promising (Brutality wise), Especially after that piercing scene... that part appealed to my sadistic side.

I mean anime's featuring adults and adult situations. I just dont like kids.

Wait, let me rephrase. I would prefer an anime featuring adults OVER an anime featuring kids. Or at least the kids at mature enough.

Like Lucky Star? Ive never seen an episode and never will because its a bunch of ditzy idiot kids.

Well, adults and adult situations are two different things.
Claymore may feature an adult cast but imho is a normal shonen anime (well, the manga was published in monthly shonen jump) which does not contain adult-like situation.
On the other hand an anime like Now and then, here and there despite the cast is definitely directed toward a mature audience.

And even if you want both there is a whole lots of shows that may appeal to your liking (for instance Yomigaeru Sora -Rescue Wings-, Planetes, Honey and Clover, Paranoia Agent, Big O, Boogiepop Phanton and so on), you just have to search for them because they are very often eclipsed by anime which can appeal to a broader audience.

P.S. I don't count gore as adult content, i count it as adult fanservice ;)
P.P.S. Fanservice is not bad at all if used wisely.

There are plenty of mature anime around. I admit, not many with casual nudity, or adult-esque torture scenes, but there are many anime children wouldn't understand.

The darkness, adult theme, and style of this anime are greatly appealing to me though.

Recommendations:
-Bacanno!
-Elfen Lied
-Spice and Wolf
-Paranoia Agent

And Claymore isn't exactly an adult anime. Shonen is a better description.

Just watch Legend Of The Galactic Heroes, you won't say that Mnemosyne is mature after that. And what someone said before about Death Note being a Shonen disguised as a shonen is totally true and applies to most of what you call "adult animés", like Claymore (a dark shonen, but a shonen), Elfen Lied (I NEVER thought about it being an animé for adults honestly, it's always been for teenagers imo, and I loved it just like that) Darker Than Black or whatever.

Oh, and I second cyruz/crystal etc... When you are used to watching a lot of animés for a long time and are an adult (well, I'm 24, but am I really to be considered an adult?! ;)), you can watch approximately any animé of any genre and still appreciate it.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Agreed. Claymore was utter shit and definitely meant for kids.
