    Title pretty sums it all up, this is the only anime thats dark and gritty enough for me to be entertained. I love the storyline and the macabre feeling you get throughout the series... So basically I was wondering if their are other anime/manga that compare or relate to Berserk, because I just can't get anough of that series but it doesn't come out fast enough for me :p

    its hard to compare. i want to say elfen lied but it might be to cute for your tastes when limbs aren't flying. gantz :dunno: graphic but story isn't anywhere near as good as berserk.

    Claymore is going to be the closest I can think of. Watch up until episode 10, if you don't like it, just toss that shit.

    PAYCE!

    claymore turns really bad halfway through.

    ergo proxy is pretty good.

    um....I would say watch it, then read it. There was only one season of Berserk, and it only covers the first chapters.

    If you are ok with reading post-apocalyptic mangas, Blame! is pretty....wierd....

    i was reading blame for awhile but stopped for along as time now. didn't seem to be a lot of dialogue, but looked cool.

    I think the last chapter had more dialog in it then all the other chapters combined...MAYBE with the exception of when he meets Cibo to when they blow through the ceiling :o

    I actually thought it was really good though. It was alot deeper of a story than you would expect with that little dialog.

    Night Head Genesis and Speed Grapher are both very dark and gritty. They are fantasy as well, but much different than Berserk. They are no where near as good as Berserk, but they are pretty interesting in their own right. Not as much gore either. Darker than Black is pretty creepy too, and a very good series, maybe the best of 2007.

    DtB isn't really creepy IMHO. Good, but I don't think it quite fits into what the OP was looking for :dunno:

    death note is nowhere near creepy :ugh:

    berserk is one of a kind but there are still plenty of good titles out there that are categorized as dark/horror. off the top of my head, some notable dark/horror titles: parasyte, uzumaki, gyo (2 vol by ito), blame!, dragonhead
