    Default Re: Any Serious Anime To Recommend ?

    I'll try to distribute the anime with serious elements in rough categories
    Action,suspense
    Baccano! - Unsure if it's serious or not but still is very good
    Black Lagoon
    Darker than Black
    Death Note
    Elfen Lied
    Hellsing - Not really serious but it is mature
    Kara no Kyoukai
    Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~
    Rurouni Kenshin Tsuiokuhen

    Romance - It's hard to find anime that are properly serious as josei are the one that usually mature while most anime are shoujo
    Clannad After Story
    Kimi ni Todoke
    Vampire Knight
    The Rurouni Kenshin OVA and Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~ could also partially fall into this category

    Shounen with some serious themes
    Black Cat
    Chrome Shelled Regios
    Dance in the Vampire Bund
    Deadman Wonderland
    Highschool of the Dead
    Kaze no Stigma
    Black Butler
    Welcome to the NHK

    Others
    Grave of the Fireflies
    Mushishi
    Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

    The ones in bold are the ones I think you should definitely watch if you feel like serious anime

    Very unique and very interesting. Id say it was a serious one. Sadly short though.

    Berserk
    Fist of the North Star
    Golgo 13
    Barefoot Gen
    Gungrave (past first episode)
    Rin: Daughter of the Mnemosyne
    The Twelve Kingdoms (not Ikki-tousen)

    That's all I can think of for now.
    I know violence isn't the answer. I got it wrong on purpose.

    As Screwby said , Kimi ni Todoke is great and so is Anohana. Welcome to the NHK deals with an incredibly serious issue, tough it deals with it trough dark humor.

    If you want something a bit more "actiony" , then Code Gueass , Death Note and Baccano are pretty good.

    Death Note - Full of suspense, mystery, bits of humor but only seldom occurs
    Code Geass - Just like Death Note: Not much comedy. Mechas. Occasional fan service. Political.
    Gundam 00 - Again with the mechas. Political
    Jigoku Shoujo - Deals with the strifes of human life and most of all, revenge
    Elfen Lied - Small amounts of comedy. Yes for gore. Has servings of ecchi though.

    I'm not really sure if I can add 5 Centimeters Per Second here since it dwells more with romance.

    That's all I could think of so far.

    Gunslinger Girl is a serious type anime, more or less. Tags: action, cyborgs, Europe, assassins. It's pretty good, I enjoyed it. Watched both seasons, including the OVAs. Has a few feel-good/funny moments but other than that it's pretty serious.

    BoogiePop Phantom is more of a horror genre, but it's pretty good. Different episodes follow different characters, but it all links up. I thought the series was a little short (12 eps) though.
