Animated shows are an amazing tool for talking about topics that are difficult to portray with regular shows. Animated shows give the writer the freedom to express his mind without worrying about toning down their content. And this is why some animated shows are able to address social taboos without offending anyone but at the same time, they hit you right in the gut. We made a list of mature animated shows you can binge watch this weekend.
Bojack Horseman is a show that is a complete rollercoaster that will make the toughest of men cry. With themes like Asexuality, sexism, infertility, fighting drug abuse and much more, this show is hands down our favorite animated show. Just watching this show has made us so much more woke.
The Japanese anime Sailor Moon was way ahead of the curve on LGBTQ relationships. While TV shows are slowly progressing towards showing LGBTQ related content, Sailor Moon has been telecasting such content since the ’90s.
The classic superhero show Captain planet spoke about Aids hysteria in a time when Aids was a mysterious disease that a lot of people either didn’t know about or chose not to speak about. Apart from that, the show raised massive awareness about global warming, animal trafficking, and other environmental issues.
Netflix’s Big Mouth is a show that takes you through the nitty grittier of puberty, growing up in a world full of sexual beings and dealing with the Hormone monster. We love the way this show normalizes masturbation of both genders, fantasizing about someone and lesbian relationships.
And then there is Steven Universe, a show in which child heroes have to deal with trauma! There are very few shows that are able to portray what it's like to deal with trauma and how it plays with your head.
Which one of these shows are you going to Binge on this weekend?
