Synopsis:

Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?

Requiem From The Darkness

Requiem From The Darkness

Momosuke is a young man with a dream: to travel Japan and collect one hundred stories. He journeys from place to place, searching for tales of the paranormal and bizarre, hoping to collect tales to publish in his book. However, the calm of Momosuke's life soon is shattered by a chance meeting with three sinister beings: Mataichi the priest, Nagamimi the bird-caller, and the beautiful Ogin. Soon, Momosuke learns that there might be more to his newfound comrades than first meets the eye...

A dark, edgy, twisted plot characterizes the two series and sets them apart from the standard fluffy anime fare. Though set in very different eras, both address the darker side of human nature and blur the victim-villain distinction, a fact that troubles each protagonist to no end as they gaze deeper into the abyss and struggle to maintain their perspective.

Shikabane Hime: Aka

Shikabane Hime: Aka

Ouri is an orphan who was raised by Keisei, a man he considers to be his older brother. One night, Ouri finds a strange wounded girl in the temple of the orphanage. Cold and covered in scars, Ouri initially thinks that she is dead – that is, until a mysterious talking cat tells him that she is a Shikabane – a corpse. After secretly watching Keisei heal the girl without explanation, Ouri decides it's time to leave the nest. However, he has picked a poor time, and he soon realizes that he's tangled in a strange, supernatural web. Why does Ouri continually meet this girl as she hunts monsters? What does Keisei have to do with it all and what exactly is her mission?

Both shows seem to share, at least intiially, something of a monster of the week approach, as well as main characters whose powers are driven by some form of curse.

Texhnolyze

Texhnolyze

In an experimental city of despair and carnage, ORGAN will do anything necessary to gain power and wealth. Unfortunately for one underground boxer who was mutilated, a rogue doctor has given him what ORGAN specializes in and he despises: Texhnolyze body parts. Will these cybernetic appendages help exact his revenge upon the one who made him this way?

If you're looking for something dystopian that deals with human de-evolution then you might like this show. Texhnolyze and Speed Grapher both deal with a world crippled by the darker side of human nature. Be prepared for a lot of violence and despair.  As with Speed Grapher, the lengths to which people will abuse each other is fully explored in this series.  This one is quite a bit darker, both visually and emotionally.
