Manga recommendation from VIZ.
Posted 1/27/16
OK, I need something sexual and dark. Something with dead and actual plot. Something violent and gritty. Something where the characters actions matter. Please give me a list from one to ten. And with a rating from 10 to 1.

So, I'm afraid I don't know anything from Viz that hits all of your requirements. I've read a few things off Viz that hit some of what you want... but I apologize if that's not what you're looking for:

Midnight Secretary is sexual and dark, but in a josei sort of way... so not gritty or violent. I'd give it a 8/10: well above average, and finds a good ending, but still tied down to the basic tropes of the genre.

Ratman is the opposite: it's violent, but not at all sexual, and only modestly dark. (It's a send-up of the comic book hero genre.) I'd give it a 7/10 ; I loved the start, but--while most of the loose ends are tied down--the resolution feels a bit rushed.

I hear great things about Welcome to NHK about being a dark, mind-bending, psychological series; I know it has at least some sex in it, and I'm not sure about the violence level. It's on my to-read list, but I haven't gotten around to it yet, however, so I can't actually vouch for it personally.

Rosario + Vampire is certainly sexual and violent, but I'm not sure if I'd classify it as dark or gritty. I've only read the first part of it--I'd classify that as a 4/10; the early chapters are more fan-service than plot--although my understanding is that it gets better if you can get into it.

Of course, if you ever get into shoujo romance, Viz has a great catalog...

Sorry that I can't be of more help to you.
