I got .hack//sign for Christmas, a series I found wonderful, and it reminded me of how few anime anything I’ve ever enjoyed. Watching the pilots of Black Butler and Bleach, which I did not enjoy, I think I’ve finally figured it out:
What people who write anime find funny, and what I find funny do not overlap. At all. (well, except Tokyo Godfathers - that was actually funny)
So, can you recommend any anime meant for older viewers that isn’t supposed to have any “funny” scenes in the series? Especially childishly funny, anyway: I want to watch something with no zinging noises to indicate humor is happening, no lightening outlined characters jumping up in a humorous open mouth startle etc.
Big plus if the recommendation is on Netflix/Hulu/Amazon Prime, but I’ll try to check out things that aren’t if I can.
