Best Animate shows for Adults

Alright I tend to avoid list, so please note that these are not in any sort of order! Basically the only reason I am doing this is cause unlike most fools I do have a grand love for all things animated(from anime, to kids shows), and I don’t feel like enough people understand that it’s not just for kids. As well as that I am trying to find a new show similar to these and all that ever comes up is family guy or the Simpsons! So if you know of any feel free to let us know.

Archer

ARCHER:

Alright I know it’s an obvious one but bear with me, not nearly enough people I know have watched it. Basically it’s a show about what not to do if you’re a spy, you know simple things like don’t date co-worker, don’t come into work drunk and don’t piss of a cyborg… you know the basics!

All of the Avatar Series

legend-of-korra2

So this is a kids show but like everything I am mentioning it does not deserved to be overlooked. Both shows follow the journey of the Avatar, a person who in each generation has the power to control all four of the elements. Honestly despite the fact that it is indeed a kids show  I would have to say that this show deals with more emotional growth and doubt (such as Zukos Journey) than any of the best dramas on tv. seriously if your kids can tell this you should be old enough to cope on to it as well.

Rick and Morty

rick-and-morty

So moving away from kids shows Rick and Morty is exactly what it says on the tin, its a show about a mastermind-scientist-alcholic-grandad and a not-so-bright Morty. Honestly it just about adventure’s they go on, which isn’t as lame as I am making it out to sound, it honestly pretty decent.

Fairy Tail

I don’t care how old you are this show is ridiculously good. It takes place in a land with magic where a troublesome and excentric guild exist by the name of fairy tail. Its one of the funniest shows I have ever seen, with characters that I wont even try to explain with words… seriously just watch it

FullMetal Alchemist

banner_528This show it not for the faint of heart, within the first few episode you watch as two young boys attempt to defy the laws of alchemy to bring back their mother from the dead, one losing an arm and the other his body. And I promise you it doesn’t get much happier after that. Its set in a world where the laws of alchemy exist, as you balance out what you take by giving an equal portion back to the world. It filled with “major” and more often than not, tragic plot twist as the two boys attempt to return to their original bodies, while getting caught in the middle of an all out civil war.

Daria

All I can say is that if you have a dry, and I mean like Sahara dessert dry sense of humour, this is the show for you

Death Note

death-note-death-note-666036_576_460Another dark anime here about your normal honour student who happened to get his hands on a Death note, allowing him the power to kill at will, a power he embraces. All he needs is a name and a face and you can be dead as he see’s fit. Corrupted by this power he attempts to cleanse the world by killing all villains and thugs, while a mysterious man who goes under the alias “L” follows in hot pursuit. Out of everything I ever watched I have to say the ending for the first season of this was one of the most well written that I have come across, although I am not gonna lie its best to stop their, the only good thing about season two is the weird opening credits.

Ugly Americans

5147071719_3272626a40I know I said that I wasnt doing a list but I did save the best for last. Ugly Americans takes place in New York, in the department of integration, where zombies, demons and vampires go to get citizenship. Its full of reference that I can promise you’re not to old or young to not get and it just brilliant from the concept to the zombie roommate to the demon boss. Their only 20 minutes long and only two season, I promise it wont take up that much of your like!

Mr Brainwash

I know what your thinking, Mr Brainwash, sounds like a cheesy late 50’s horror film gone wrong (I don’t really know why late 50’s but it makes me sound like I know what I am talking about) Mr Brainwash who is formally known as Thierry Guetta, LA Film maker and pop artist shocked viewers at his Life is Beautiful exhibition back in 2008 and has been doing so ever since.

Mr Brainwash, who started his art career as a journalist, as he documented street art all over, soon became inspired not only to create the ultimate Street Art documentary, but to pick up a spray can as well and dabble his hand in art.

With many accomplices under his belt, such as designing the cover to madonnas greatest hits CD “Celebration”, Guetta has become a ledgend in the Art world

When I say I have only showed you a fraction of what Mr Brainwash is capable of on this post, trust me there is much more, so check out  http://www.mrbrainwash.com/home.html

 

 

Put on your boxing gloves cause this one will knock you out

Alright pardon the lame pun, but hey, I couldn’t resist. One of the biggest thing going around at the moment in art is hanging stuff from ceilings or riggs, creating a masterpiece that appears to float, which is the idea that had inspired Michael Kalish and Oyler Wu, to create a sculpture of the famous boxer Muhammad Ali out of boxing gloves that has been expanded from a metal frame (I bet the title is being to make more sence now)

Disney Meet MTV

So pick up any newspaper and you are bound to find an article that advertise the destructive minds of our generation, that nothing is safe from our corruption, in this case not even Disney. We have all heard the tale of how Snow White meets her prince charming but photographer Dina Goldstein, fills us in on the “happy” ever after (just saying; 16 and pregnant)

Dina Goldstein has created a cast of photo shots of classical princess fall from grace in her series “Fallen Princess” as each princess falls pray to an ironic twist of faith, as sleeping beauty is coma-tize during plastic surgery, or how “little riding hood” becomes “not so little” as she snacks on the double cheese burger and chips bursting out of her basket.

Snow White and the Iconic “Apple”

With the new movie, “Snow White and the Huntsmen”, there have been many Snow White images floating about the web, and I wish to add my own witty images to the mix. Now I am not really a big fan of Snow White as it promotes drugs to children, with characters called Sleepy, Dopey, Sneezy- who is named so after all the times he coughed after sniffing cocaine (relaxed over protective parents I am joking)

So what I did was take one of the most memorable images from Snow White, in the cartoon, as she is first about to take a bite of the fruit that will eventually coma-tize her, and replaced the apple with a more famous icon.

 

Game of thrones

So you know when there’s that program that you always intended to watch, but never get around to actually watching it, well Game of Thrones was one of those programs to me, WATCH IT NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY. Last week I got my easter holidays, so due to the immeasurable amount of boredom I was experiencing I decided to watch it, and it was UNREAL.

Just to give a basic summary of whats going on (cause if I where to go into detail, I would have to write a book) the hand of the king has died, assassinated or otherwise, nobody can say for certain, and the King needs a new hand. It’s with this motive that he seeks out his old friend Ned Stark who leads a peaceful (not really) life with his wife, sons and daughters. Soon enough the righteous Ned Stark finds himself tangled in a conspiracy that threatens not only his life, but the lives of all those he loves. Unable to sit quietly as he watches his dear friend, the king die due to a hunting accident, Ned voices his theories, an act that threatens his life as it threatens the Queens son, Jeffrey’s, claim to the throne.

Meanwhile, the throne is being threatened by the roguish (and amazing) targaryen, as well as some really weird people from somewhere (trust me watch the show and you know who I am talking about) and Ned Starks son, Rob, who fight for his fathers freedom, and honour.

As each battle ends, it followed by another, but little to do the people of the south know, that they have more than themselves to fear, as an ominous and mysterious race lies behind the wall, guarded by Ned’s bastered son, Snow, lying in wait, as winter draws nearer, and the days become shorter.

So if your reading this and still not convinced to go out and buy the box set (or google, letmewatchthis.com), I bid you a good day and hope that one day you get some good taste.

So hope you enjoy and Keep Posted…
