Best Anime About Real-World Issues

"Not all anime is about giant robots and pure escapism. Sometimes a show with a fantastic premise can be used to examine a real-world issue or subject. And sometimes anime comes all the way down to earth, the better to explore things that are often the domain of a live-action production -- but which gain an extra visual twist through animation."

The Genshiken manga is the greatest slice of life out there, by the way.

Guess it goes to show the type of series I usually watch... only ever saw [C] and watching shangri-la now. So can't really comment much on the list

I saw Rainbow it seemed pretty real. I tried 1st episode of Welcome to the NHK and dropped it. I didnt finish Eden of the East. I dropped Control: The Money & Soul of Possibility after like episode 7. I plan to watch Planetes im just not sure when.

Rainbow is my favorite of the ones I've watched on the list. The only problem I had with it was it's focus on the worst sides of humans. Everyone seemed to just wanna watch the world burn and further their own agenda. It was a huge contrast to the picture I got of the same period from the 'A Drifting Life' manga, which appeared much more realistic.

Hmm I haven't seen any of these. I've been meaning to watch Planetes for a couple of months now though, and Eden of the East seems interesting.
