I am looking for what I like to call "serious" anime...
Now if you allow me to continue without being offended, serious anime is exactly like a movie but only cartoon.
Good examples are the following:
* Legend of Galactic Heroes.
* the Ghost in the shell series.
* Seirei no Moribito
All these are serious, they are realistic to the way the characters act and behave, and nother key-point is that the main cast doesnt consist of 90% kids that for some bizarre reason all have grown-ups' obligations. The characters also don't have unproportional body parts (like the height is 65% legs, eyes 3 times larger than the mouth, etc).
Well, hope I didn't offend anyone out there that loves "unserious" anime, please help me out here!
