Dear /a/,

Looking for a new anime to watch. Issue is, every one I try ends up betraying me and being the same stale bullshit I hate. Would like some kind advice for series to check out or at least what keywords to use.

What I'd like:
- minimum of moe bullshit (fanservice is fine)
- not about teenagers (they can be around, but the focus can't be their idiotic teenage shit)
- action-oriented with "realistic" fighting (by the quotes I mean: fine if there is magic or might-as-well be magic technology, not fine if "fights" consist of the bad guy talking about their power levels and sad life story and giving "attacks" special names)
- philosophy can be pretentious and overwrought, as long as it's not just "HE WAS DEFEATED BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP"
- Preferably relatively short (aka has a focused, driven story the writers are trying to tell instead of "bad guy of the week" or serialized how-long-can-we-milk-it bastardry)

Examples that have fit this in order of how much I enjoyed them:
Cowboy Bebop
Ghost in the Shell SAC (though the 2nd season was shitty)
Attack on Titan
Darker Than Black
Black Lagoon

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful replies

I saw that and tried many of them, and almost all broke at least one of the things I'd like. I've also googled, used automatic recommendation sources, the works. Either what I like is a vanishingly small market, or I just don't know the right way to ask machines about it. This is why I have posted here.
