Didn't know that we have all these options to view it legally... too bad that most of these won't work in Libya without VPN.

I didn't know that. Some interesting recommendations.

Or you could just download everything off like I do but I can understand wanting to support the creators. Though really I have to wonder whether these pay for sites in particular are even legal and the creators even see any of that money.


Used Anime-Planet and Funimation before, but I thought Crunchyroll was a subscription service. Adult Swim ofc for Rick and Morty, that show is hilarious. Weird how they're all in the US, would've thought that the biggest ones would be Japanese.

Crunchyroll have a subscription service, that lets you watch the episode as soon as it releases than wait a week (in the free ver.) and lets you read manga which isn't availble in the free ver.

Otherwise the site is completely free. just you won't find all the anime in some regions.

Oh, I see. I thought it was subscription only.

Well, I'm no anime connoisseur, so it's probably fine for me. Though, from what I did watch, I tend to like the the more mature stuff (in subject matter), and those aren't quite mainstream, not obscure, I guess, but not mainstream.

Any suggestions?

Not sure... mature and non-mainstream stuff? There's Erased (japanese name: Boku Dake Inai Machi) I think fits this a lot.

"Mature" but mainstream is Attack On Titan but you most likely heard about this even if you didn't watch it.

I watched Attack on Titan, just season 1 though, I wouldn't call it very mature though, standard power fantasy with some gore. I think I watched Erased, not sure though.

I like stuff like Claymore, Black Lagoon, Elfen Lied, Psycho Pass, precisely because they tackle weird mature subjects and don't shy away from a little gore or boob like western stuff, that's become so boring and predictable; I've seen it all before :)

hmmm... yeah. the Mature part in Attack on Titan isn't the story... I want to remember something for you but nothing comes to mind.... well, I know your account if I remembered something I'll tell you there.

I think Erased (most of it anyway) has Psycho-pass maturity level... but that's just my opinion.

Someone said Umineko is more Mature than most anime but I haven't watched it so I don't know (the same person considers AoT very mature).

A ok. I'll have a look at Erased. Thanks for the suggestions. Well, AoT, I dunno, it's cool, don't get me wrong, but again, not mature imo. Gory and action packed, yes, deep, not so much :p

Upvoted, desu-ne!
