Hello,
as the title suggest, can you guys give me some recommendations about good horror/mystery/drama animes? I am having a hard time finding things that have brutality that actually hits hard, rather than being gratuitous and the show staying in tone, rather that going into melodramatic or comical.

Thanks in advance! Alternatively, pox on you, if you just skip this!

Not sure it will be brutal/hard-hitting enough, and it does have some comical moments, but it's generally pretty serious and has bad violent things happen in a non-melodramatic way, so, I'm offering up Paraysyte -The Maxim-

BTW, I moved this over to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

Have you seen Elfen Lied? That would follow along the lines of what you're looking for.

Shireigari - Ghost Hound. It's a bit more psychological but still fits into this category. And if you want some gory horror, check out Corpse Party.
