Depends on how you define 'dark'. There's the classics like Lain and Texhnolhyze.. very dark. And Saikano, which is probably the most soul-crushingly depressing anime I have ever seen.

I think Nightwalker is my TOP favorite.

Virtual cookies to ANYONE in this forum who has even HEARD of Nightwalker.

I love Yami No Matsuei too but the manga is WAY better. >_>

It's hard to beat Elfen Lied for dark. I've seen all but a couple of the anime named in this thread and they all pale in comparison. Elfen Lied has it all: plot/story, character development, violence, wtf moments and some wicked twists. It does it all fairly well and doesn't waste your time by pretending to be something it's not. It's brutally honest about what you should expect from the moment it begins. What's more, it even has a half decent ending (a rarity in anime, for sure). It's my absolute favorite for getting reactions out of people too. I'd have to say it's a rare gem hiding in a genre over flowing with static boring characters that not even a mother could love, plots that can hardly be called a plot and shock moments that are so lame/cheap that it defeats its own purpose.

Higurashi, School Days, and Madoka all wish they could be Elfen Lied. Yeah, I said it.

On second thought, there's a few that come close to Elfen Lied for being good but dark. However, they're not shows that could be directly compared due to being drastically different.
