Elfen lied was alright, however the gore factor kind of covered the main theme of the story. (which is dark as well)
I agree that Monster is a very dark anime...but to a degree. It's one man thrown into a series of events that can be construed as a brilliantly dark story.it is more tragic than dark.
When it comes to dark story line, I pick a true underdog, which is Bokurano. It is the sort of anime where you can take as you see it, or observe the deeper purpose of the anime. It is an anime that dabbles in the psychology of children in a certain circumstance. I don't want to spoil too much for those who are interested in watching it. Even though I don't like Mecha shows this was one of my personal favorites.

I believe that more directors should step foot in the whole "dark" side. They should be able to express the way they feel and what is in there minds. You have to remember that anime is an idea that pops in someones head, whether it should be acted on or not, depends on your sanity. The director is just telling you a story, whether you feel the same is up to you.

Don't "crunch" me, I just interpreted the question the way I did while I'm drunk.

It shows reality and not every anime has a bright twinkle twinkle little star background. It's like watching the news but you see the character's perspective. Reality is never pretty, even though you try to make it beautiful.

well it does have a few dark moments but i wouldn't consider it dark because it's too happy and after the first episode you end up right back where you started (without any clue who drugged him)

I don't think Death Note is Dark at all, it's more....Phycological
The point of Death Note is not about the killings, it's about how at first Light has a noble goal, he wants to get rid of all that is evil, but bit by bit he starts thinking that he is a God becasue what he is doing in his mind is godly, so slowly we start to question his sanity. And in the end he doesn;t care about purifying the rold as much as becoming God over the world and winning over L.

So, thats just my opinion or Death Note.

Young children/adults tends to stray away from "dark animes". Its probably becuase it either questions their knowledge of how humans actually act in real life, its too complicated for them, or them being not use to sumthing much more than their typical shounen/shoujo material.

An perfect example of "dark animes" would be Monster (an master peices in terms murder/horror), School Days (the dark side of romance), and Parasythe aka Kiseijuu (once u finish reading this manga, u'll look at human beings with an different angle).... these are just the few "dark animes" i listed. there's many more out there, i'm just too lazy to type them up here lol.


MONSTER! yes
Parasythe! YES

another on that's dark but still hilarious is Welcome to NHK...i heard people in Japan committed suicide becuz of it

Death Note is an amazing animu. Light was pure at first, but as the animu progressed he became more twisted and evil until he became unrecognizably evil.

Anyway if anybody wants a good, dark, psychological animu then Gantz is your man. Warning the ending a unsatisfying because they changed the last part of it from the manga version of it.

School Days shows the dark side of romance.

Death Note in my book wouldn't classify as "dark"
