Without a doubt, this is the best serious animated series, not based off of a comic. Definatly for all ages, no kiddie shit that you have to endure, there are characers that get killed off and there is blood but it never feels edgy or imature. It has great atmosphere, great characters, great action, very memorable,  and is probably my favourite animated show of all time, and I wasn't even growing up with it. 

Look it up , you will not regret it and it might be your favourite too.
