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.

Pretty much gold except for Darker than Black.

Her work is incredible! It can really stand on its own and enhances the experience of the anime significantly!


DFDB | Apr 13, 11:51 PM
I fell in love with her ever since I heard the music of the vision of escaflowne. What a genius!

Ghost in the Shell SAC ♥

"Zankyou no Terror" OST is definately not a masterpiece, but one of her worst works. However let's not discuss subjective opinions of stupid and ignorant newfags and children about noone cares. Better let's write some facts. Yoko Kanno is only genius female composer of our time. Hats off. Never forget brilliant masterpieceful music for "Uncharted Waters", music for other KOEI games, "Cowboy Bebop", "Arjuna", "Gundam", "Macross" and many many more outstanding works.

The music in zankyou no terror is pure sadness. It is so beautiful. It sounds like someone's heart thats recovering from despair. ugggh I can't describe it. Nothing else sounds like it. So simple, so complex, so beautiful. I have too many emotions, I can't!!! aaaaaaah
