I'm looking for adult animé (not adult as in R rated bloodiness that a 13 year old would like), but adult as in something an educated 40 year old would find intellectually stimulating, and just entertaining and magical in general, that also has high production values that match up to hollywood's production values. So not an obscure animé made by a group of five teenagers on a very small budget, but something with production values and english voice acting at least as good as the production values in Fullmetal Alchemist, and preferably even as good as Avatar the last airbender's production values.
Something I like about animé is the feel of endlessness and adventure, scale, epicness, and magic of there jsut being town after town that the group of protagonists visit, and romance between interesting, likable characters would be good too.
So really, to sum it up, an anime with the scale and adventure, and production values and pollish of Avatar the last airbender, but with more mature characters, more mature themes, better dialogue, and whatever else. Avatar for an adult. Although I'd settle for just another regular avatar type adventure too.
Can anyone recommend anything? Thank you.
