Top 10 Darkest AnimeI'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.
Almost after every episode someone dies, in a dark way.
I Love this story how many times I repeat it
Not much to say about this one. Just... Watch it!
Not dark, more like emotional.
I was literallyl
monster is the best dark anime out there
I have so much to say about this show, but only the 10% that see this will read, so no point is given. I'll just say..good luck if you're planning on watching.
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.
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.
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!
One of the best Anime I've even seen (when watched in subbed...you lose so much of the raw emotion in their voices in dubbed, which steals a lot from the show). The emotions felt at the end, unlike anything else. Absolutely loved every second of this show
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.
This show is emo, not 'dark'. Plus it's really, REALLY bad.
Best anime on Earth by far
Elfen lied was very dark but was very depressing at the end. If you like dark anime that are sad this one is probably the best one. The manga goes really far into the story and by far the manga's ending was more sad than anime.
"An amazing show, dark, gory and sad, this show doesn't leave out or hide from the dark"
Questions the existence of anything
Portrays the innevitability of humans, and suggests that there's no way out for humans other than their demise
Chilling visuals demonstrate how a kid would fracture under immense responsibility
! 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?!
A society which you can't escape from
This is a sad anime �" My favorite was mion
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!
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.
Why is this even here? It’s nothing dark about this series, it’s just about cute girls having a happy life and fighting monsters with their magical powers, nothing dark, nothing at all.
Should be in the top 3, this series gets real dark.
This should be higher.
This series will BREAK YOU.
That's a guarantee.
What idiot put this on the list?!
Should be higher
This deserves to be in the top 5. The plot is so amazing that it literally questions basic idea of what's good or evil.
what a great concept. children having to face the realization they are nothing but meat being raised for the slaughter to horrifying demons/monsters. Can't wait for the next season
I'm not going to spoil anything. Just watch the first episode yourself.
This anime should be before Tokyo ghoul its much darker in its own way.
Pretty dark in my opinion
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.
