Need a dark anime with well developed characters and a plot that makes sense, ie follows its own rules. The animes I've watched so far are: both full metals-solid 10, hunter x-9.9, fate zero -7.5, inuyasha-5, attack on titan-6, that one vampire show on adult swim a few years ago, prob 3 though i only watched it once. Helsing ultimate-3 (abridged is fuckin hilarious)

So I'm looking for a dark themed anime with well developed characters including the antaginist. I absolutely loved how well rounded the assassin family, the phantom troupe, and the clown family was. And how the ants started becoming more and more human as well. And how Gon wasn't purely good, but capable of some evil.

when you said dark anime, Black Lagoon (both seasons + OVA's) was the first that came to mind.

but tbh Hunter x Hunter sets the bar really high and it will be hard to find anything that comes close.

o yea, Parasyte does explore some similar themes as the Chimera Ant arc. totally different type of show though.

How about D.Gray Man or Jojo's Bizarre Adventure?

91 days is about the mafia. It's really great. Seems to be exactly what you are looking for.

I'll second Parasyte.

Also you might like Yu Yu Hakusho, by the same author as Hunter x Hunter.

Thanks for the suggestions, lookin em up now. I guess my standard would be fate zero when you say hunter x sets the bar pretty high. Def good enough to hold my attention. Put hunter x as a 9.9 simply because full metal holds a special place in my heart as the first anime I really got into.

Are there any animes with a main character similar to punisher? Def my favorite marvel character. Something about antiheros I absolutely love.

Akame Ga Kill is dark...but it seems light hearted as it crushes your soul.
Deadman Wonderland is pretty fed up.
Corpse Princess is fairly dark.
Tokyo Ghoul is rather opressive
Death Note

Death Note and Code Geass

Durarara has some vigilantism.

Casshern Sins

I would disagree with death note, as the antagonist is anything but a soldier. I'll check out the other ones though.

You never specified that. Just saying. Light is a vigilante, or appears to be.

Light is an Anti-hero that is for sure. He and Lelouche are probably two of the most famous anti-heroes in anime

Yuji in Fruit of Grisaia is also Punisher like...but that show has harem elements as well.

I finished watching Death Parade and it is dark, yet philosophical. Not a long series only has about 12 episodes, so something easy to watch.

Meant protagonist/main character but I think you know what I mean.
