Moved to the recommendations board.

I can't help but laugh at half the anime mentioned here as "mature" but hey, whatever floats your boat.

To me, a good example of a mature anime are those aimed at seinen/josei demographic like Monster and Aoi Bungaku (Blue Literature).

Seconding this sentiment. They may not be rated R but they are not kid-friendly.

Some that are R are Dentpateki na Kanojo
FMA: Brotherhood
Ergo Proxy
Ghost in the Shell: SAC
Tetsuwan Birdy Decode (the first season is PG-13, the second R)

And totally thirding Monster

Lets see... Shows that were considered quite "hard-core" and "mature", atleast in my book of what I've watched...

- Legend of the Galactic Heroes (Surprised no one has mentioned this yet, it's quite possibly one of the most "hard-core" things you'll watch. It's probably the closest thing you'll see to realistic space war)

- Armored Trooper VOTOMS (Another realistic war scenario; it's the closest thing to real mecha battles as you'll get. :p And the main character is incredibly dark, you might enjoy this)

- Aura Battler Dunbine (Aside from the OP, this is quite a dark show, granted the ending is rather random, it's worth watching)

- RahXephon (Interesting show, somewhat similar to Evangelion, it's pretty good, I'd recommend watching this)

- Zeta Gundam (Great plot, wonderful characters, and dramatic endings to those characters; it's worth watching as well)

- Victory Gundam (This is probably the darkest of Gundam series; you'll have to be pretty harden to watch this, and have somewhat of an understanding that death is completely random to enjoy this. People tend to dislike this series for some reason, but if you can figure out the "unintentional" meanings of the series, it's very good, and one of my favorites)

Yes, I'm a mecha fan, love mecha. :3

MA means that it's more hardcore than R... that's like porn/Saw territory. For this site, you have R and you have PG-13. No 15+ ratings.

I'm not trying to be offensive, I'm just pointing out that for this site there is not MA- rating. Which means that while there are probably some anime that would fall into that category of above PG-13 and below R, they don't have a rating for that.

I already knew that for Australia- and it's not my fault that Australia has so many ratings.

The point was that there are mature, good anime that are rated PG-13... and some lower.... on this site.

you do realize the more age ratings the more understanding what category of matured level is. Being restricted by less ratings makes it worst then having more ratings due to fact you will not know if this is just some childish anime/movie or it will be matured so with more ratings you def know that its for older people its simple as that other wise its a guessing game and tbh no one wants be guessing if this anime/movie is crap it waste peoples time trying figure out whats worth watching whats not.

Regardless of how anyone sees age ratings (and the lack of), that doesn't change the fact that you're stuck with the American ratings on this site. And I'm not sure that you realize this, but Americans don't rate based on percieved 'childishness', but on content such as sexual themes and language- there can be mature anime that don't have any swearing or sex, and those automatically get a lower age rating.

The thing is, everyone has different tastes. So what may be brilliant to me might be crap to you. And vice-versa. There are R-rated anime out there that are gawd-awful. The rating has nothing to do with quality. Besides, this does have a way to tell if a lot of people liked it- there's a part on the anime page that shows what the average score of an anime is, and shows how many people have rated it. And you should be able to tell what shows you're more likely to enjoy based on personal tastes- there's a mature PG-13 anime that deals with politics and space. If you enjoyed politics and space, you'd enjoy that anime.

being PG13 does not tickle my fancy a PG13 anime thats matured would be awful no way in earth u be able see someone get there head riped off let alone anything sexual or language so again i state the more ratings the more understanding i don't feel that any PG13 stuff is matured for me becoz i have grown up i have realized theses typs of anime and movies are design to attract the younger people a family movie will come under that now days you see familys rent out a PG13 movie for there child and a M to R rated movie for there self's the reason why we have a age rating system is to make sure kids are not watching R18 stuff so again i state it clear that TRUE reason behind it was fact people are aware of content that will be shown placeing a PG anime/movie to a younger person will understand the storyline and its content so it is not just about what content either also how story is told some are more harder then others a PG film is easy to follow through i never once seen a PG film that wasnt easy to get or understand..

So OP watch anime to see 2D characters getting beat up, amputated, abused and mentally scarred?

Watch Angel Beats! It got some very gruesome shit in there, and they actually make it funny... I'm not even joking. (and it's PG-13)

What's so hard to understand about Higurashi?

You have a poor dude who got terrorize by very cute girls to the point of insanity, it's pretty straight forward, I mean, it's not rocket science...

isn't that all you wanted anyways? Seeing 2D character get scarred/abuse bad... Blood, gore, horror?

Try watching Armored Trooper VOTOMS. It's what Code Geass should've been (Realistic mecha, without the magical ish or the super robos).

Dude, do not quit before episode 5. The stuff that happens outweighs the shitty art, which is pretty bad, I'll agree. But, rest assured the second season (Kai) looks much, much better, so it's worth it. Don't watch Rei, half of it is fairly lighthearted stuff, just catering to fangirls like myself. XD

Seconding Kara no Kyoukai (Garden of Sinners.)

Seconding Berserk as well.

Kara no Kyoukai (specially the 5th movie, awesomeness), Mnemosyne - Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (most of the arcs are annoying until the last 2 episodes or so...), if you haven't yet, watch Hellsing Ultimate OVA

Be sure to check out the 3rd season/OVA of black Lagoon, which just started airing... :D

Honestly if you want seinen stuff (mature stuff), then anime will never fill that void, you are better off looking up manga. alot of really good manga never make it to being anime because the darkness in the series is too much for animation companies to have any interest in it. they remain niche series...

oh, and the anime for berserk sucks... epically... the manga is much MUCH better.

Kara no Kyoukai Movie Series. A Type Moon series. (Fate/stay, tsukihime, etc)

There are 7 movies. Goes from simple cuts to piercing someones chest with bare hands and crushing their heart in front of their face while arm is still piercing their body and keeping only thier head then crushing it in front of someone who cared about them. There's a couple... or so rape/sex scenes.

It's a great series. Most of what i said is in the 5th movie which is also placed at 10th place out of all the animes on MAL.

Hmm, I suppose I'd suggest Darker than BLACK and Baccano.
Darker Than BLACK is pretty sweet. I recommend it ^^
