Hi hi! How's everyone doing?

I'm looking for fantasy animes with medieval settings (or similar). Exemples of anime: Akame ga Kill, Seven Deadly Sins. I like 'em with serious and/or dark plots with a touch of humour.

Thanks, have a great day! <3

Grimgar may be up your alley and is on CR as well. Despite borrowing a few video game concepts (just a class and skill system) it's a rather dark, medieval fantasy setting. It might be slower-paced than you prefer.
Maoyu is also here, though it is probably more light-hearted than you're looking for and focuses more on politics and technological development than fighting. (Behold, potatos!)
Spice and Wolf is similar to Maoyu, more realistic and darker in tone (superior, in my opinion), but is not available on CR. It focuses heavily on trade and economics in a medieval setting.

Tower of Druaga Aegis of Uruk (season 1)
Tower of Druaga Sword of Uruk (season 2)
- starts out with a heavy dose of humour but becomes more serious over time.

Shadowskill (two movies and a separate TV series retelling much of the same story)

Slayers / Slayers Next / Slayers Try / Slayers Revolution / Slayers Evolution-R (and numerous movies/OVAs) mostly comedy but each series has an overarching serious plot.

Record of Lodoss War (OVA & TV series) a serious fantasy story with very little humour. The TV series tried to lighten things up by having an accompanying series of shorts with Super Deformed characters parodying each episode. The OVA series is seen as a classic but strays quite far from the source material from episode 6. The TV series is set after the OVA but follows the source material more closely, so contradicts the latter half of the OVA.

Re:Zero Starting Life In Another World. A dark series with humour injected by the male protagonist. However, when he isn't in the mood to tell jokes the series seems even darker.
