    ^It even is one of the best mangas I know, but, in my point of view, it´s not part the genres I am asking for here.

    =\ Claymore isn't dark at all. It's just an action/adventure seinen that's pretty good.


    Imo Goth: Wristcut Incident is good. Idk if that kinda dark is your thing, but it's out as a manga and as a novel.

    They've said it before and I'll say it again: Shin Angyo Onshi. The story doesn't seem special at first but it gets to be a few volumes after. And yes, after a few volumes, the art developed into one of the most breath-taking I've seen in a while. It's epic.

    For samurai goodness, go with Vagabond by INOUE Takehiko and SAMURA Hiroaki's Blade of the Immortal. REAL (also by INOUE) is a slice-of-life series about the world of disabilities and wheelchair basketball. Not really dark but makes you contemplate about life just the same.

    Overall, I like the above mentioned titles not just for the great plot and art but also for its respectful portrayal of women.

    PS: I know of a couple of 'dark' shoujos as well. How dark do you wanna go?
    But once you conquer the world, then comes the hard part.
    What kind of world would you create?

    How dark? Well I think Monster is partially already to dark... But I have no clear borders there...

    You are right about Shin Angyo Onshi and I just recommend it and the other YOUN In-Wan/YANG Kyung-Il Manhwas to others. (Island and Zombie Hunter are both perfect examples for the comics I like)

    Claymore
    Gantz
    Dragon Head
    Übel Blatt
    Vinland Saga

    These are all pretty dark and serious imo.

    ^ Übel? oha das zu lesen könnte übel werden...
    Übel and Dragon Head I don´t know, Claymore and Vinland Saga are good (though as already said in reference to claymore, they aren´t really dark in my point of view)
    Gantz... Das mag Ich ganz und gar nicht! (This one isn´t to my liking)
