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.

Satoshi Kon... I'm very sorry you left the world to soon. I bet you only got to show us a fraction of what you really wanted too. You really knew how to tell a creative psychological story that was beautiful.
