I was trying to find an anime that would be a good introduction to something darker and more psychological. I just powered through Kaiji 1 &2 and Death Note in the last week and thought both were great gateways. They got me thinking but also in a very easy to digest concept (more so Kaiji, I thought Death Note was a bit more complex). What I liked about Kaiji was there was a dark message that was at times hidden under the flashiness and fast-pased environment of gambling. I am looking for something else along those lines.

Thanks!

All seem to be the type of show you're describing.
