Top 10 Darkest Animedhruvchauhan1333 I've not watched many animes but I HAVE watched some animes which define the dark. Here's the list of animes which define the word 'Dark' itself. You can say they are manifestation of darkness themselves.
The Top Ten
Sad atmosphere, dead feelings & immense mid-scene horror images and cool sound FX... This is the darkest anime I've ever watched in my whole life and I can bet there isn't any more darker anime than this one. - dhruvchauhan1333
I Love this story how many times I repeat it
Ah... This pick is a perfect mixture of dark within action. It's a must-see. It defines two-sided personality of a girl & consists truly sad fates of the heroes. - dhruvchauhan1333
I saw the first six episodes of this anime, and I gotta say. I never thought they would be able to make texts seem scaring.
Definitely one of the darkest shows out there. - Elric-san
Wow, This is the first anime I ever watched.
Not much to say about this one. Just... Watch it! - dhruvchauhan1333
I was literallyl
"An amazing show, dark, gory and sad, this show doesn't leave out or hide from the dark"
This is by far the darkest series I've ever seen
Why is this not higher, its very dark.
Berserk deserves so much higher
Dude this show(season 1) will knock you on your ass!
This show is emo, not 'dark'. Plus it's really, REALLY bad. - Brobusky
Yeah, death note fans, I know it deserves a higher place but this list is made for 'Dark' O.O anime. No doubt, this epic anime is dark but the formers are more. This is a must-see foo. - dhruvchauhan1333
! Even the name gives it away. This series is wonderfully dark and twisted. It deserves to be much higher on the list, in my opinion.
Why isn't this higher?!
AHHH BESIDES GORE AND ALL, THIS IS SUCH A DARK ANIME! The plot twists and yanderes and paranoia in this anime make it the darkest of all time, for sure!
This is a sad anime �" My favorite was mion
This should be higher. - FluffyBanana
This series will BREAK YOU.
That's a guarantee.
Not many people have actually seen this anime which is why I think it's so low on the list, In my opnion this one one of the darkest animes out there, After watching this it really messed me up emotionally for awhile. If you have not seen this yet it is seriously a MUST watch.
What idiot put this on the list?!
Just 4 de lolz
Blood, death, gore, and a theme park full of criminals. Oh, and the theme park is controlled by a psychopath. No further explanation needed.
It's probably more dark than Attack on Titan and Tokyo Ghoul. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This anime should be before Tokyo ghoul its much darker in its own way.
Pretty dark in my opinion
It's kind of in the name. You get to watch as the main character slowly turns from innocent animator to paranoid victim. Also, the town also turns paranoid, too because of Shounen Batto (Lil slugger). It's very very dark. Don't believe me? Just watch the opening and you'll know what I mean!
The first episode starts out fairly lighthearted...until it suddenly takes a 180 and becomes really dark. It's amazing how lighthearted this show can be one moment and EXTREMELY dark the next. - TwitchandVinegar
I swear, this was probably one of the darkest anime of 2015. My God, the flashbacks to Soma's violent birth CREEPED the hell out of me! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
so dark - Not_A_Weeaboo
Spoiler alert! Second half is pretty dark considering how light-hearted and sweet Fate Stay Night was.Watched the second half in one go.Please! don't make the same mistake!
Of all anime, how is Gurren Lagann even dark?! It's actually quite fun and inspirational actually! Although there were some dark moments... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This was by far the darkest anime ever to exist, the characters can rape the universe and eff a galaxy with one hand.
Wrong adjective! Gurren Lagann is the most EPIC anime ever to exist. I love Gurren Lagann, but it is in no way a dark anime! It's like saying SpongeBob SquarePants is the darkest cartoon ever. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Episode 1: it's so cute!
Episode 3: what!?!
Episode 12: They're all dead. Oh well, time to start cutting.
There's no happy moments at all in this anime. - Nonpointed
Insanely dark but still a bad anime in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I actually like a lot of dark anime but this isn't one of those I like. - SelfDestruct
That Atomic Bomb scene will haunt me forever.
