Game of Thrones ended last night and I am once again left with nothing to watch during weekends. So I've decided I'm gonna watch some anime.
What I'm looking for is a series with these criteria:

- Serious Tone
- Have around 20 or less episodes per season
- Real-life subject (Psychological maybe? I've watched Psycho-Pass)
- No high-school drama
- Not very old

Also, I keep hearing good things about Joker Game. Give me your thoughts on that.

Thank You!
I think that there's value in people only when they act based on their will.

Cowboy Bebop. Pretty much fits the above criteria and should be on everyone's list imo.

the majority of serious animes try too hard to be edgy. kabaneri of the iron castle for example is like a gothic kid's wet dream with all it's angst and edginess.

i advice you to go back to live action if you want psychological, particularity a show like true detective season 1. best crime tv show ever.

Bokurano is an interesting psychological series. The manga is amazing, btw.

here are some animes i just remembered:
Death Parade was very cool anime that dealt with alot of issues concerning death and morals. i recommend you watch it if you haven't. Parasyte the maxim was also a very good thriller/action anime. Higurashi When They Cry (watch both season 1 and 2) is a good mind fuck of an anime.

oh dear god, don't watch that edgy teenage crap! also:
- No high-school drama
the ones i had in mind have already been mentioned. what i can reccomend are some series i haven't seen myself but i've heard good things about them and am interested in are: Shin Sekai Yori and Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu.
Also, I keep hearing good things about Joker Game. Give me your thoughts on that.
if you are looking for something with a deep plot and character development then you'll be dissapointed. it's not a bad series but it's very episodic and by the end you won't even remember the names nor faces of the characters aside from one or two. still nice but don't excpet much

//edit: oh yeah! i just remembered something i'm sure you'll love: Samurai Flamenco!

I'll co-sign Shinsekai Yori and Death Parade, and they both meet your episode limits OP

Although depending on what you consider high school drama, SSY may put you off in it's first part with some light romance elements and a slight case of young person buffoonery

yeah, shinsekai yori is worth the minor highschool shit;
fate zero if you want some fantasy/action in your thriller ,just avoid the rest of the fate franchise as it's very different in tone.

seconding what bastard said about joker game.

also as mentioned by genos, some shows that are not action heavy get live actions adaptations, liar game is similar to death note without any of the fantasy elements, it's purely psychological.  if you want something serious but don't mind it haing some (good) comedy gto is really good, be it magna, anime or live action. holyland is also good, it's beck but instead of singing they beat up people.

So many suggestions. Thank you guys!
I read the synopsis of every mentioned anime and some of them sounded very appealing
- Death Parade
- Erased
- Mushi-Shi
- Shinsekai Yori

I also went ahead and watched the first episode of Joker Game and it's interesting enough. I think I'm gonna start with Death Parade and Erased.
