I just got finished watching Black Lagoon, and want more like it. Serious anime about real things. Or even fantasy things in the real world. Can anyone recommend some nice, grown-up anime?

Wasn't trying to. It's just the entire "SERIOUS ANIME/GAMES/TV/ETC FOR GROWN-UPS LIKE MYSELF" really gets me rolling.
>>
op here.

k, so i fail.

this was the first 'proper' anime i've seen and basically I'm asking for good, dramatic things with action scenes that arent kiddy shit like Naruto, Bleach, Yu-Gi-OH!!!!!! etc.

call me newfag, whatever. Thanks to the helpful ones, keep it coming if you like.
>>
Geass is serious and mature, with some intelligence behind the overall plot. Recommended.

WATCH AKAGI AND KAIJI YOU DICKBUTT
>>
Witch Hunter Robin
Twelve Kingdoms
Ayakashi
Mononoke

They're all on the fantasy side, but they probably fall under what you're looking for.

>>
>>10193700

Generally most serious action thingies have leaning towards the younger audience anyway.
>>

Full metal panic (2nd series) is reasonably realistic if you allow for over-developed super energy weapons.

NEON GENESIS EVANGELION

Looks like something out of Hellsing. I think he was trying to recommend Hellsing.

Oh to the OP look into the seinen demographic
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seinen
>>
OP: HELLSING ANNOYS ME.

ALSO: ANYONE WHOS OVER 18 HERE NEEDS TO GET A LIFE.

All I'm saying is - I KNOW there is anime thats waaaaay more watchable than anything on TV in the west. What I've seen so far - up to Ghost in the Shell, Mononoke and BL - isnt it.

Im not pretending to be an adult, I'm 16. I just want something that I'll like.

But why am I defending myself against you, lawl.
