We all know these sentences: “You watch anime? But that’s for children!””Anime is just cartoons!””Why don’t you start watching mature shows?!”
Well, to all those people who use these to defend their hate for anime: I’ve listed some “cartoons” for you, that are definitely NOT made for children – here are 7 surprisingly mature anime!
#1 Attack On Titan
I had to put the most obvious one first on this list. If you haven’t watched Attack On Titan yet and you think anime is mainly for children, I wanna hear your opinion after you’ve taken a look at the first episode of this one.

If you have children and/or are in contact with them on a daily basis, please don’t watch this anime near them. Another is just…insane – way too much blood for a five-year-old and way too many death-related motives for anyone under the age of 18. But if you’re 18+ and haven’t watched it yet, then you should watch it 🙂
