About Devilman, the anime adaptations don't put emphasis on it as much as the manga, but very early on when Ryo describes demons to Akira, he explains that demons can fuse with humans at anytime and there's nothing you can do against it, aside from having a pure heart (like Akira who become Devilman). Ryo stares at his hands and start sweating and says he's scared because right now at any moment, a demon could fuse with him and kill him. That's more horrible than living in the world of Attack on Titan.
The End of Evangelion. An OG on the more dark psychological aspect of anime
Evangelion was one of those animes where I was like ... dafug was dat ending and went straight to the manga to try to understand it... still could'nt same as the ending of gantz... way to crazy for my taste.
you want dark anime? just watch any 80-90s anime movie from japan. i would say Violence Jack: Evil Town would top it.
was evan really that dark? i mean they had a happy ending (noted, i have not seen the alternate endings)
dark as in psychological, or dark as in gore and disturbing subjects?
i think clannad bad ending version was like gut wrenchingly sad
a little child dies infront of us
mahou shoujo site was pretty dark (never finished the anime but the manga is nearly finished)
(thanks to okane for reminding me of this series) promise neverland is probz the darkest premise, BUT the light of hope that emma always holds does prevent the manga from feeling too dark at the same time (i hope the manga isnt close to ending but it feels like it ;w;)
ill throw in fire punch and chainsaw man by tatsuki fujimoto, though theyr manga
but i think the darkest manga iv ever read was probz aku no hana
(spoiler but the mc literally gets raped.)
ill add happiness to the list
honestly its neck and neck with aku no hana
oshimi-senseis psychological work is amazing
Oh we can add mangas?
Let's go :D
i just saw they did a live action to this... Let's do this...
from happy goes lucky to depressing...
Grave of the Fireflies. How could I forget on OG like that?
Yeah on top of that there was
