"The most paradoxically uplifting ending ever" - the truth of this quote is vast.

Neon Genesis Evangelion. I think the giant robots (okay, not technically robots, for the purists out there) make a lot of people tend to forget how genuinely straight-out depressing that series is at times.

Serial Experiments Lain. Well, one could argue (rather unconvincingly) that the theme is not that dark, but the lighting sure was.

The first Ghost in a Shell movie. The tone got continually lighter as the series progressed onto TV format, but some of the imagery from the first movie was pretty haunting.

NGE is pretty dark, Ergo Proxy was very much so (a total skull fornication at that) and my current most darkened one would be Shigofumi, the first episode alone was mind boggling.

~_~ Hm.. there was one I liked featured in the Monthly Betsuhana, but for the life of me- I can't remember the name. It was done by Kaori Yuki, that much I can recall.

If not that one, then it's DOGS; Bullets and Carnage. ( Oh come on, lots of blood and violence. What more could you ask for? )

Hellsing is pretty dark...or not...it's more badass then dark.

Anyway, perfect thing to watch after Twilight.

That's why I told to watch Hellsing after Twilight, you baka you.

To regain faith in vampires.

Deadman Wonderland then.
Though Higurashi is pretty dark and great.

Listening to soundtracks alone makes me feel uneasy even though it's a middle of the day.

Berserk was, and still is, my favorite.

And here are all the usual choices people make if some of you can't remember what you like.

Hellsing
Deathnote
Higurashi
Monster
Blood
And I guess Deadman Wonderland now. Been seeing that a lot lately. Lol

In no particular order:

- Deadman Wonderland
- Ergo Proxy
- Elfen Lied

'Favorite' dark-themed anime would probably have to be both Evangelion and Black Lagoon.
