Hey Crunchies, got any like these? Not just ecchi stuff, it would probably be a parody and maybe have an element of self-awareness. Examples:
Gintama
Panty & Stocking
Ai Mai Mi
Kill la Kill
Sabagebu
Wooser
Inferno Cop

Some possibilities:

Ben-To: The seriousness with which the fighters compete over half-priced bentos is priceless.

Ookami-San and her Seven Companions: Not dark at all, but definitely self-aware, and clearly a parody. Has a narrator who offers running commentary, which is clearly the best part.

Arakawa Under the Bridge: Has a surreal sense of humor, most of which is on the spectrum between silly and bizarre.

Ookami-San: On my list already. It's gone from Netflix, but now CR has it. Nice.
Arakawa Under the Bridge: Looks good, will try it.

Bakemonogatari: Eventually I'll have to watch these series.
Mitsudomoe, Osamatsu-san: These look like they fit the bill.
Miss Monochrome: Already watched, really liked it.


Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san: Yes, added.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: Looks really good... and it's already on my watchlist. Cool.

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou: Maybe... can't find any streams though.

Prison School: Exactly the kind of sick and twisted stuff I'm looking for!

And this somehow popped up in a search... another short to put on the list:
Comical Psychosomatic Medicine

Awesome, thanks guys.

Oh yeah, forgot about Comical Psychosomatic Medicine, that's good too.

I also recommend KonoSuba, self aware and somewhat twisted.

EDIT: The first broadcast episode of Osomatsu-san annoyed so many other anime and manga companies from parodies it was forced to be taken down from streaming, so there's that going for it

Humanity Has Declined - Dark humor and satire. One of my friends commented, "Why is it so colorful?!?"
Teekyu - Mile a minute gags, if you can keep up.
Zvedza - It's own unique brand of humor. I can't even describe it. Lunatic?
