Damn you took forever to mention you didn't like romance(I know some serious/darker toned romance anime too. I thought I had a few anime for you, but the more serious, darker tone anime I know of, have a really strong romance aspect, and the one that doesn't, be it weak, still has a romance aspect in it.

Truth of the matter is, romance aspects make darker tone anime, all the more darker/tragic, but what can I do, if you don't want romance, you don't want romance.

How about Puella Magi Madoka Magica?

It's a difficult show to discuss without ruining it and you have to be careful reading up on it, even Wikipedia spoils it. Here is a safe review:

Don't let the art style fool you.


I'd also second A Certain Magical Index / A Certain Scientific Railgun S (which has a dark storyline)

Also, does Durarara count? It's got some dark elements to it, mainly weird stuff, supernatural and violence.

Higurashi (when they cry) - Starts off really lighthearted and gets really messed up as it goes on, a masterpiece IMO.
Requiem From The Darkness-Really dark stories with a supernatural edge set in the samurai era, animation can be strange at times, in a good way.
Corpse Party-Violent, really dark full on horror set in a haunted school.
Ghost Hunt- Obviously about ghost hunters, stories vary, some mild humour but some very dark, creepy and sad stories.
Blood C- Violent, bloody action horror.

Bit of a mix, i'm sure at least a few of these meet your criteria pretty closely.
