I like the Wikipedia definition of Gothic fiction-


Gothic fiction is an important genre of literature that combines elements of both horror and romance. As a genre, it is generally believed to have been invented by the English author Horace Walpole, with his 1764 novel The Castle of Otranto. The effect of Gothic fiction depends on a pleasing sort of terror, an extension of essentially Romantic literary pleasures that were relatively new at the time of Walpole's novel.

Prominent features of Gothic fiction include terror (both psychological and physical), mystery, the supernatural, ghosts, haunted houses and Gothic architecture, castles, darkness, death, decay, doubles, madness, secrets and hereditary curses.

The stock characters of Gothic fiction include tyrants, villains, bandits, maniacs, Byronic heroes, persecuted maidens, femmes fatale, madwomen, magicians, vampires, werewolves, monsters, demons, revenants, ghosts, perambulating skeletons, the Wandering Jew and the Devil himself.

Important ideas concerning and regarding the Gothic include: Anti-Catholicism, especially criticism of Roman Catholic excesses such as the Inquisition (in southern European countries such as Italy and Spain); romanticism of an ancient Medieval past; melodrama; and parody (including self-parody).

( what is a perambulating skeleton?)

Some anime/manga I can think of that aren't mentioned.

Jigoku Shoujo
Bloody Kiss
Love Monster
Ghost Hunt (more a horror)


Look for anything with Devil, Demon, Akuma, Blood, Ghost or Vampire in the title on Mangafox.

"Bride of the Water God" has the feel of a gothic romance.

Sort of as it does have some goth themes and those Loli-Goth girls but Sunako is more of a morbid horror freak than a goth gal as you don't normally see her wear any Goth
makeup, jewellery or clothes.

I would say that Perfect Girl Evolution is more of a reverse harem with a goulish flavour and a big spashing of Goth than a true Goth story.
