Sabrina Rain Samson - Contributor

Nope, the title isn't about what you think it is! Although partly, it is about more mature content in the parlance of anime series. You may know Adult Swim as a late-night segment under the cable network Cartoon Network. BUT, there's a big but, Adult Swim shows only start to air when most kids are already fast asleep. To be honest, anime on Adult Swim isn't a lot, to begin with, but they're guaranteed fan favorites. And for sure, the saying 'a new broom sweeps better but an old broom knows all the corners' remains true for our list of the best anime on Adult Swim since it brims with classic and nostalgic anime series. So, are you ready to take a trip down the memory lane? Enjoy watching!

  1. 1Cowboy Bebop
