Simply put there's very little made for non otaku audiences over the age of 18, at least from what I have seen ..
Hmmmm, all I can say is that I've collected more series than ever in the last couple of years that non-otaku over-18.... actually non-anime fans found interesting and entertaining. Series like.... Spice&Wolf, REC, Kamichu!, Kurozuka, Ichigo Masimaro, Love*Complex, Soul*Eater, TTGL, and others have all been hits with different people who aren't otaku by any definition (though not everyone liked every series).

There's diversity out there.. but I'll readily acknowledge its a bit thin -- mostly due to the economy, imo. Producers will gravitate to the types of shows with the highest probability of a revenue stream -- any US tv viewer is aware of the infinite numbers of CSI/Law&Order/murdercrime series on tv, etc. The trend to overkill isn't exclusive to anime
