    I did watch Afro Samurai years ago. I think a rewatch is in order. I will check out Baki. Here's my list. As I said in a previous post, if anyone can recommend mature/philosophical/psychological/post-apocalyptic anime (not already in the list :p), I would be grateful.

    If you guys need a place to watch anime, check out 9anime.to

    If you enjoyed Afro Samurai be sure to check out Samurai Champloo.

    Champloo was an interesting one, I felt it was at its best when it was being at least slightly anachronistic

    Been going through my hero academia currently, up to part 56, 8 episodes til i'm all caught up.

    Yeah I did not say it was bad, just that even for me it was easy to see (and hear in dialogues) that the half nakedness of a schoolgirl (which luckily is never named to be of a particular under age) is a deliberate topic most often. This by itself let me know they are doing the fanservice, but they know they need to put it in there because "that's how anime sometimes is", at least that's how I felt about it. Generally it's good though, will probably continue watching anyway.

    Check out all the Patlabor movies (The one subtitled Wasted 13 or WXIII is the best). You can skip the TV series.
    Also Megazone 23.

    Why not give Gunsmith Cats (1995) a look? A bit cheesy, but I couldn't stop laughing and I just loved the female protagonists, but I was obviously sold on the Chicago theme, firearms and muscle cars.

    I also found a few other '90s gems and one in particular caught my interest, Armitage III (1995). There's just something about the art style and imperfection. I can't put my finger on it, but it just looks badass.

    So... anybody watching Kengan Ashura on netflix? What's that anima based on again? I still recall there was another show which did what this does (remake? reboot?)
    Same with Baki... I could have sworn what happens before the netflix show I have already seen...

    BAKI is a reboot of BAKI the Grappler. If y'all haven't watched it yer watch Castlvania on Netflix. It is amazing.

    I know suicide isn't a laughing matter, but the way they portray depression and life problems in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (or "Goodbye, Mr. Despair") is hilarious.

    If you guys know of any similar anime series with dark comics, satire or mature content (not nudity), please, let me know, because that's the kind which is most comfortable.

    Agreed. :)

    You know Ghost In A Shell? Evangelion? Probably worth a look. ;)

    Has anyone seen the series made by MaSTAR? I honestly think it's a fantastic effort by the creators, really enjoyed it.

    For the Dragon Ball fans -

    Check it out -

  13. I guess the most recent one that i really liked was Megalobox. Tiger mask w was pretty good, and the castlevania anime had its moments. I like a bunch of older ones, but i suppose i am old now. Samurai 7, G gundam, gundam wing, gundam zz, samurai champloo, igpx, Slayers.....and there are others. Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop are easily my two favorites of all time.

    Nothing wrong with the link here. It should link to a playlist. Posted it to another website and no reports of bad link there.
