The English One Piece (I love english dubs when they are done right but this was terrible and they edited the crap out of it)

A few hentai I have seen (one was of a nun and a priest *shudder*)

... as for traumatic in a "wow that was emotionally scarring" way
Neon Genesis Evangelion. I think I was 14 or 15 when I saw it and hadn't seen anything like that ever. Good series btw LOL (personal opinion)

Higurashi 1st season was disturbing if not repetitive .. once they explained things it got better but for the first few episodes .. wasn't expecting that.

Edit - seeing other posts I agree with the following
Haruhi - Endless 8 --- loved Haruhi but that was painful. Can't even imagine watching it as it came out

Elfen Lied --- haven't watched it in a while but some scenes man some scenes

For me it's High School of the Dead. It's just pure gore O.O (<<< Or at least that what I think)

I wouldn't call them traumatizing, but a few anime have really been disturbing to where they were hard to watch and not easily forgotten:

Elfen Lied
When They Cry/ Higurashi no Naku Koroni Kai
Koi Kaze
Rin Daughter of Mnemosyne

Whenever Bobobobobobo - bobo - whatever- bo was on Adult swim I would occasionally watch it, and I felt my brain start to melt from the pure atrociousness of the entire series. I'm still going to a psychologist for therapy sessions

Enzai... I wasn't very experienced with shotacon, and the animation was terrible.

For me it would be Grave of the Fireflies. Just thinking about that movie and how it ends, many years after watching it, makes me cry.

I've seen most of the anime mentioned here, but still far more traumatizing than all the blood and gore (and hentai) for me was The Endless Eight in Haruhi. I remember thinking "There's going to be something important next episode, I can't skip anything!" and just waiting... and waiting... and waiting.... When an anime like Haruhi decides to sh*t in your face, you don't walk away from that unscarred.

For a wonderful alternate ending to Haruhi: http://spicytunas.com/2009/07/haruhi-suzumiya-how-endless-eight-should-end/

I recently started watching anime late last year and one of the first ones i saw was Elfin Lied. The killing scenes were pretty nice but what i thought was dark was the psychological trauma Lucy experienced that convinced her to kill.

School Days' surprised me as well. At first, i though it was another typical harem but the last episode was pretty sick.(Nice Boat)

The darkest has to be Higurashi, i mean come on, Shion's torture scene was friggin' kool.

Lastly, i agree with Arakawa_Aya. My brother warned me of the endless eight but i still watched the whole arc in one night and it destroyed me.

Higurashi, Elfen Lied, and School Days -shudder-

Higurashi:God, Shion's laugh and that RIPPING OFF FINGERNAILS!!! HOLY SH!T!!!
Elfen Lied: I hated that scene where those three little boys were beating up that puppy, but in my own twisted way, I was a bit satisfied when Lucy blew them up... but all the guts and blood that was in the room... -shiver-
School Days:......O_O
