20 of the Best Mature Anime of All Time

Anime aimed at teens is a lot of fun. But anime aimed at an older crowd is on a whole other level! You get more violence, gore, nudity and sex than you bargained for...which isn't entirely a bad thing.

Overrated? Theres no such thing as a word "overrated"
Ok. I'll make things quicker so that you garbage tiers can go hump a sock

To love ru was boring as fucking hell, it felt like for the last 4 seasons amd it felt like recycled fucking bottles with repainted color, disgusting use of fan service not to mention cheap. Short ver. Clique harem directing

Overrated? It influenced western films, and marked his own style, well since you're trolling Nazo no kanojo x, overall was interesting, but it was certainly not unique, actually tho the story was there, but no construct to actually make it last ( no wonder the manga looked like it was axed ) not really aomething to think about and overall just meh, i mean it had no impact what so ever

Fanservice? Why need cheap "overrated" teenage sexappeal for overrated audience with no calliber?

You do know Isin doesnt direct that fucking shit right? For fucking sakes is anyone here not retarded or an edge lord wannabe overrated piece of shit?
