I kinda get your reservations there but anime feels pretty free from the modern curse of movies/tv. Atleast if you avoid the dubbed animes that gets somewhat changed. If its your cup of tea tho i cant really say but i find anime too have pretty much everything..I have never so much as tried watching an anime before - because I didn't even like the short clips of it that I have seen. I also think most modern media in general is terrible. I can count on two hands the number of movies and TV shows I have genuinely enjoyed in the last five years or so.
That being said I watched Edgerunners and really enjoyed it.
