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.

Aka the greatest Anime director who ever lived. I wince at the fact that the late Satoshi Kon will never make another proverbial Perfect Blue, Magnetic Rose, Paprika, Tokyo Godfathers, etc.

Perfect Blue, Tokyo Godfathers, Paprika.....

Legend :c Rip in peace.

Finally, had inspiration to write these words. He is my favourite director, he is the best of the bests for me. His unusual point of view of life, strangeness, dose of fantasy, writing, animating and directing skills, his ability to reunion IDEA and AESTHETICS together are unfathomable! He walks on the line of reality and fantasy which is why I really love him! As kanji in his name says "Kon," it also can be pronounced as "ima," and it means "now," and his surname "Satou" means "cleverness." So, his cleverness is really underrated compared to Hayao Miyazaki, although I don't feel aesthetics in his works (FYI, I like his works, just implying there is an idea, but not the ability to aesthetically show that idea, apart from his "Spirited Away"), they are good, but they can't emphasize to give messages as Satoshi did. Like his name says "now," he will always live in our hearts like "now."

Rest in Peace, Satoshi Kon sensei!
