Shits getting too depressing here, let's talk about cartoons!

quote [ ... ]

So who else here is a grown-ass adult who still indulges in cartoons meant for 10-13 year olds?

Marked NSFW for Adult Swim and crazy anime stuff, too.

I was really into Black Lagoon. Seemed like a spiritual successor to Cowboy Beebop, in a way. In that it's about a company of mercenaries barely scraping by that get caught up in some serious criminal shit.

Of course, it'd advisable to avoid the English dub. Not because the voice acting is particularly bad like a lot of dubs, but the language barrier between the characters was supposed to be a significant plot point, having all the characters speak English ruins it.

I never got that into anime, too much of it just seems to get ridiculous near the end. Where they treat "character development" as "they become nearly godlike in power". Another series I really liked because it was a more grounded character piece was Planetes, which I'll bet my left fucking testicle someone who wrote Gravity had to have been a fan of.
