Lately Ive been really into dark and depressing anime such as Ergo Proxy, Serial Experiment Lain, Elfen Leid, Saikano: She, the Ultimate Weapon even Gantz was pretty bleak (poor guy never got a break)you know stuff that doesn't really have a happy ending and the journey to the end is full of pain and sorrow.
So can anyone recommend me some anime with a good plot, character development, really well drawn animation with some decent action? it doesn't need to be action filled but its preferred.
Please don't recommend Grave of the Fireflies or that hide and seek "movie"
I didn't find either of them very depressing.
