Let me explain:

South Park, Simpsons, Family Guy, etc. are adult animated shows, but they only focus on Comady, I have yet to see one with say a more serious story and premise. Anime has that, but I rarely seen one from Western origins.

The exact kind of adult animated film with a serious story is this:

Sadly we rarely get movies or series because thanks to Disney, they left a legacy (or stigma) in the minds of people that animated films are only for children :(

Personally I wish for an 2D animated War Drama similar to Apocalypse Now, Band of Brothers, etc.

Do you guys agree there should be more animated films for adults?
There are LOTS of animated films for adults. Just enter some keyword like hentai or ecchi in google. (and turn safe-search off) :-)

I did not meant porn dude, I meant more serious adult stories that are not porn, something like say, the Godfather animated :P
It's no longer being made as far as I know but Spawn had a nice little run there on HBO for a while.
From my understanding, and it could be flawed. For starters its a cultural thing in Japan, and also its cheaper over their. Whereas here in the states, someone would just rather do low budget live action than an animated film. Though I guess the American equivalent in a way would be something like Pixar.

The French have Sylvain Chomet and his team. Excellent animator with an impressive visual style.

Not exactly what youre probably looking for, but when i was kid i was watching "Nikke Knatterton" and now as adult i can watch the same cartoon and laugh for completely different jokes than as kid. Its so good satire, that the kind of thing isnt allowed these days any more :(

But the non-comedy cartoon sector in west is pretty nonexistent thing i am afraid. Comics there are lots (yay europe), but cartoons not really.

Heavy Metal maybe? I think there is Lords of the Ring cartoon movie as well, cant remember if it was any good though. Suppose there are some obscure western cartoon movies for grownups - but serieswise i can only come up with stuff like Futurama, Ren & Stimpy and so on :/

Who is going to make me my western equivalent of Cowboy Bebob and Berserker dammit?!

The sidebar on YouTube lists a few, such as Heavy Metal (more teen than adult), Cool World (don't remember), or Who Framed Roger Rabbit (again, more teen than adult).

There is a STRONG view in the US that cartoons, comic books, and video games are all meant for children, and including adult content is WRONG because only children interact with these mediums. : (

We as a new generation, must dispell that illusion.

I say kickstarter and youtube and flash animation is the answer to make more adult serious stories.

Sorry, I have no idea where to watch it on the internet, I saw it on the big screen when it was shown in theaters over here ...

EDIT: Apparantly youtube has it with Spanish subtitles, what's wrong with Spanish?

Fritz the Cat (very much adult), Animatrix (teen-adult), Starship troopers (I guess, I don't know much about it)

Just looking at what airs on TV over here, one could almost get the impression that comedy is all we get, be it live action or animated, when it comes to TV-series.
