Anime – The Serious List


There are a lot of anime choices currently out there and you can never have enough anime. I tried putting together a list of anime which is a more on the serious or dark side of anime. Some of them are recent and some of them are close to a decade old but this list of shows are good to watch at anytime. I still have ton of shows that I need to watch and catch up on like Bleach and Naruto Shippuuden , so with these new download caps introduced by the ISPs I’m probably going to go through my cache of Anime and TV Shows. For those looking to watch some very good anime shows then you can’t go wrong with the list below.

  • Black Lagoon
  • Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage
  • Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
  • Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2
  • Death Note
  • Devil May Cry
  • Get Backers
  • Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
  • Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG
  • Gungrave
  • Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger
  • Ikkitousen
  • Guyver 2005
  • Karas
  • Macross 7
  • Macross Frontier

  1. Ali

    In my opinion One piece is the best anime series ever created!!

  2. one thing im sure of, you can’t go wrong with that list for damn sure! though Ergo Proxy could fit with that collection. Great list!

  3. @Ali – It is a fantastic show!

    @Kal – Can you believe that I haven’t seen Ergo Proxy yet! I need to watch it! Damn my anime list is too long!

  4. Personally my favorites are bleach and naruto for sure but there are some good ones here like samurai champloo (not a lot of episodes but its still had one of the best art styles ive even seen in an anime) and death note is really dark but good.

  5. Did you see the full length movie version of Gurren Lagann? IMO the series was better :)

  6. i like Gungrave style animes
    want to complete death note but no time :/
