Hello,

Was hoping someone could recommend some new anime. I lean more to dark, scary animes. Future Diaries, Tokyo Ghoul, Hellsing, Attack on Titan, Berserk, Darker than black, dead mans wonderland, death parade, elfin lied, shiki, D.Grey Man, Parasyte, Code Geass, Claymore, Ajin etc.

Help!

I've moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

I'm going to suggest something that in many ways is very different from the above, but which is, in many parts, dark and unsettling. Go ahead and give it a try, and if you find the tone is not to your liking, you can always drop it: /mononoke

It's got a very different visual aesthetic, which I found mesmerizing.

Here's Crunchyroll's "About the Show" info:


In feudal Japan, evil spirits known as mononoke plague the countryside, leaving a trail of fear in their wake. One mysterious person has the power to slay the mononoke where they stand; he is known as the Medicine Seller, and he vanquishes the spirits using the power of his Exorcism Sword. In order to draw his sword he must understand the Form, Truth and Reason of the mononoke. Armed with a sharp wit, the Medicine Seller wanders from place to place, striking down the evil spirits in his wake.

Although I wouldn't say it's scary, Death Note is pretty dark.
From the clips I've seen, I'm preeetty sure When They Cry would count as scary and dark.
