Seriously Messed-Up, Psychological Manga

Very messed-up, major mindfucks, things like that. Really grim and dark and make the reader go "Nooooo!!!/Whaaaat?"
1 Anorexia: Shikabane Hanako wa Kyoshokushou

2 Battle Royale

Battle Royale

Kids fighting to the death. One character is a full-blown textbook sociopath, another was sexually abused as a child, many others are mowed down like so much fodder.

3 Bitter Virgin

4 Confidential Confessions

Confidential Confessions

Not so much 'oh my God WHAT?!' as 'Oh my God, adults are assholes'. Basically like the manga version of Chicken Soup for the the Teen Soul: Tough Stuff

5 Deadman Wonderland

Deadman Wonderland

A lot of messed-up things implied and explicitly shown to the reader, from scientific experimentation; to torture; to pure sadism; to cannibalism; to slaughtering people; to cruel 'games'; to rape and threats of rape; to piling up the drama and angst until it overflows.

6 Flowers of Evil

7 Franken Fran

Oh my God WHAT IS THAT.

8 Fourteen

What am I reading. What am I reading. Is this manga good? I can't freaking tell. It certainly is drawn in a very heavy-handed, sketchy way.

9 Future Diary

Future Diary

Bitches be very crazy. So freaking crazy.

10 Gantz

Gantz

People die a whole f*cking lot. People that don't deserve to die. People that do deserve to die. Meaningless deaths and almost pointless struggle for survival.

11 Goth

Goth

It's just grim, but not even the foreboding grim, just dark.

12 Gyo

Ew ew ew ewe ew ew EW EW EWE EW EW EW FISH GET THE HELL AWAY EW EW EW EW EW EW!!

16 Helter Skelter: Fashion Unfriendly

Helter Skelter: Fashion Unfriendly

The art is a perfect fit for the story of a model/actress's downward spiral into maintaining her beauty at the cost of her mental, emotional, and physical health.

17 Homunculus

Homunculus

The definition of surreal. 

18 Ichi the Killer

Ichi the Killer

Sexual sadism, sexual masochism, sexually aroused when killing people, really weird main character, and generally unlikeable characters trying to figure out the clusterfuck that they've gotten themselves into.

19 Life

Life

Bullying taken up to 11 and staying there to the point of soap opera levels.
