What comes to my mind are those particular ruins, dungeons, or caves that have eyes and spawn those little green creatures that loves to eat the flesh they crossbreed with.

When it comes to blood/gore and messed up stuff, Elfen Lied comes to mind. Probably the first super heavy gore series I watched since I started watching anime.
Meow meow meow meow and meow shogi, meow meow meow meow and meow shogi.

Taking one step a time, I work and try my best.
Though I'm the weakest of the bunch,
Expect from me a good paw punch!
Meow meow pawn, meow shogi.

When I watched Genocyber and saw 3 kids get swiss cheesed by an attack helicopter. That or pretty much any scene out of Urotsukidoji.

Mirai nikki, but I didn't like that anime at all

It just felt empty as well as the violence and the gore

Shigurui. I remember being so overwhelmed by it, I had to drop it after couple of episodes. Wonder if I’ll feel differently if I watch it now...

BNHA. The sexual tension between Bakugou and Midoriya was almost too much. They should just get a room already. Hard to believe the series is PG.

Berserk, corpse party, another, elven lied, ninja scrolls, terraformars, helsing ultimate, blood c, parasyte maxim. All can be pretty intense. Nothing has really been to bad but these are always on the list.

Hellsing Ultimate had some pretty gruesome scenes. Also Kingdom manga, but the anime itself censured a bunch of gruesome scenes.

For nudity is has to be Ishuzoku Reviewers. It is so close to hentai but it is just ecchi.

Probably Koi Kaze. It's genius lies in not taking sides, you are left alone with a situation which feels clearly wrong: incest by a grown man with his underage blood related sibling. Yet, there is no condemnation, villification like 99.9% of all directors would have done to help the viewer. Nope, you are left alone with the dilemma, for which only bad solutions exist. Just like the characters.

I find this much more disturbing and intense than blood, torture, or gore.

Corpse Party was the most brutal I have seen.
And he calls my name. First a whispering, then louder. And he wants me to follow. And to enter the eternal fire.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Intense scheming and plotting be it for politics or battle strategies and tactics. Almost, every character gets a moment to do it. Every character has a plan or an agenda. Its intense to the point it feels bloated sometimes.

One that immediately pops into my mind is Violence Jack. The story is not good by any means but the things that go down in it are down right grim. Full of murder and rape.

Probably the most hardcore anime I have watched was Testament of Sister New Devil. It should be a hentai, but it's not and it has 2 seasons
I'm ready for season 2. Hope it's not trash. Anyways, enjoy your day today

Probaby Interspecies Reviewers.

I have now classified my life in two distinct periods. One where I was a bum, and the other having achieved enlightenment after having watching the masterpiece that is Interspecies Reviewers.

One of the most hardcore anime I've watched is Girls und Panzer. I really love it when Japan makes anime for hobbyists. In this case, tank otakus. The anime is heaven for anyone who loves tanks or is into WWII history. GuP has very detailed 3d models of the tanks with relatively realistic way the tanks move and fight. The soundtrack is 10/10. They created military anthems from all over the world from scratch using an orchestra and it sounds beautiful.

Shigurui - violent, a unique martial art and gripping plot. No series has come close in depicting the cruel and harsh reality of life in Japan at the time.

I've seen Shigurui listed multiple times. I read that whole manga and wasn't bothered by it so now I feel like I have to watch the anime.

I got nothing, just came here for ideas.

Berserk I guess, watched the trilogy a while ago and they were pretty intense. Then maybe Elfen Lied, Hellsing Ultimate or Higurashi, I like to think of them as having intense stories or settings.

Made in Abyss, without going into details.

Also School Days, I remember I had trouble to finish it because I was sick of seeing Kotonoha suffer.

Without question or comparison, my answer is Gantz. It's hard to shock me, but Gantz's level of violence and gore was like next level.

If we're talking strictly about violence/gore, then definitely Genocyber. That shit is crazy.

Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku is probably the most intense anime I've seen (emotionally speaking). That was one wild ride.

In terms of hentai, Uba is fucking horrifying. That scared the shit out of me as a kid. Triangle Heart, City of Sin, and Datenshi-tachi no Kyouen are all pretty bonkers as well. And I couldn't even finish TSF Monogatari.

I'm surprised almost no one said devilman crybaby yet, this shit was absolutely brutal in almost any way

Also that one episode of made in abyss, a bunch of parts in berserk, most of elfen lied, and this season's dorohedoro with some of its fight scenes
↑ probably a shitpost ↑

Go watch Genocyber, Violence Jack, or Legend of the Overfiend and you'll have a new appreciation for gore. Gantz is childs play compared to those

I've seen Violence Jack and Legend of the Overfiend, I still think Gantz is more brutal. Probably because of the superior animation style depicting the gore better. But, so many people have said Genocyber, that I actually intend to watch it this weekend, because I've never seen that one before.

Easy. Yuru Camp. It was definitely in tents...

Seriously though, a lot of good answers were given so far. I'll throw in Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne into the mix. Some scenes did get a bit graphic. Torture, nudity, gore, etc.

Violence: Genocyber and Shigurui

Hardcore: Pigeon Blood (torture that involves piss, poop, vomit, needles), Shitai wo Arau (lots of drugs and sex with corpses), and most likely Kowaku no Toki (I've only seen some parts, but this is probably the most which involves raping amputees)

Its early 90's over the top and just plain f'd up. If you're looking for something more modern definitely check out Shigurui if you haven't seen it or the new Blade oc the Immortal (same director)

Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku -- if you want a series that will leave you empty and hollow after watching it, this is the one. Then, I haven't watched or read it, but I've heard that Narutaru is soul crushing due to what's depicted in it.

Grisaia the Fruits, specifically the survival arc. It was really disturbing but one of the best arcs I've ever seen in my life. Or Hoshiai no Sora. They touch on bad parenting and they somewhat show the effects it has on junior high students and I feel like no other anime has really done that. It's not that intense or hardcore but it's somewhere along the lines

Not gonna lie, this was the dumbest forum reply I've ever seen in my life. There is no sexual tension between the two characters, it was just Bakugo looking down on Midoriya until Midoriya, the one who was always below, was finally the same level as him. It was just a case of feeling inferior, not sexual tension.

Violence, and the show that takes the cake is Elfen Lied, if you are easily disturbed by blood and gore in general, stay away from this show because people just get torn in half out of the blue (if she is around that is)

Probably Euphoria, in pretty much every way. It's kind of hard to describe it. It's very sexual (a hentai), somewhat gory and has many other things in it like torture - or eating poop.
