I was disturbed and disgusted by watching SHIKI....

I am into dark and messed up anime but no anime made me feel like a piece of shit like the way SHIKI did..... though I never questioned the creator sanity cause the story and character portrayal was masterpiece to me.....

OreImo. If it was just that one wanting-to-bang-your-sister-shitty-harem LN, then ok sure whatever, but no, the author went on to publish another wanting-to-bang-your-sister-shitty-harem LN in Eromanga-sensei. On top of that the dude has a little sister himself

Made in Abyss.

The guy probably has the most vivid, creative imagination I've ever seen. And also the most fucked up and depraved one.

I have to think for some time more before I actually answer your question (and I suspect I won't even be able to arrive at a satisfactory one, since I'm no barometer for sanity), but just after reading the OP, I have to question something myself.

I'm curious why Shiki made you "feel like a piece of shit"? And whether you believe that was its intention?

To be fair he didn't quite get the ending he wanted due to fears of a law that ended up being rejected after Oreimo ended. Note: Said law would've banned 90+% of all anime if it passed.

Berserk.. not really concerned about Miura's sanity, but sometimes I was so shocked at how someone could think of some things.. and definitely did wonder about what place he's in emotionally, about his experiences in life and why he wrote some of the stuff he did..

And ya, what was it about Shiki that made you feel the way you did OP?

If anything the dude knows the community he is writing for. He's rolling in the 円円円 from the people that buy the shit he writes.

Non-blood related step-sibling in Eromanga is debatable incest but the idea of smashing a 10-year-old is more concerning imo. But again the man knows that people will buy it cause cute loli lmao

Pretty much any anime that contains sexualized lolies. I'm extremely disturbed by the amount of people who actually read/watch and made manga/anime with these type of tropes.

Precisely, much of what makes Made in Abyss such a beautiful story is the transcendetal contrast of depravity, perversion and danger that leads to valuing and appreciating the fine arts, characters, objectives, and above all, the longing of young and innocent minds differentiated greatly, with the dark minds and hearts that many of the characters with the most "experience" have about the world around them.

The fact that they can survive such adversities and degenerations without many resources or experience, makes it undoubtedly worthy of admiration from a more personal perspective.

And yes, that man is a creative genius with a lively and colorful mind, in which hides in the depths of his mental abyss, a dark light which we would call "depravity."

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Well more than his sanity I'm worried for his health, considering the shit he comes up with Araki probably snorts LSD before each writing session.

That's obliviously fake news. Anime industry is worth billions, and is one of the few Japanese industries that have international impact left. Japanese government would never attempt to damage it, because Japanese politicians are not very fond of ending industries or companies even if they lose money. The reason why Oreimo didn't get on oblivious incest ending is an actual existent Law, that forbids depictions of incestuous relationships in literature and entertainment. Yeah, there is an actual law, it doesn't affect porn and doujinshi as they aren't considered official, and to some degrees even manga can bypass it, the only instance where I heard the law applied and lead to the cancellation of a manga revolving incest is Aki-Sora, but as Oreimo is a book, the law had high chances to cancel the publication. Is just one of those weird Japanese laws that are very specific or interpreted in a very rigid manner, like the one for prostitution, which is forbidden under Japanese law, but legal brothels keep existing, because for some reason as long as there is no vaginal penetration - so just oral, hand jobs and anal - the Law doesn't see it as sexual acts, nor as prostitution, because the Law in discussion states describe the sexual act as being just vaginal, and the authorities interpret it in a very literal manner.

For this one is not the authors fault, at least not directly. It was the editor who had the brilliant idea of going to that route and made the author do it.



Anything that revolves around gore. Especially if is hentai too, which often do ... so you get porn with gore...

Yes! I somehow didn't find this disturbing when I was a teen (maybe because all of my friends praised Loveless for being the best, lol), but I tried to rewatch it a year ago - and it was so weird and uncomfortable, I just had to drop it. Also, I remember that my teen self found Ritsuka to be annoying and rude to Soubi (lol, how dumb could I be), but now I finally see that he's just a poor traumatized child pursued by a creep.

UPD

I still find their virgin teacher kinda cute.

Every Yuasa anime, I question his sanity whenever I see his works.
And also One Piece, Oda is clearly losing contact with reality, all of his characters are ugly as hell, what kind of nightmares does he have I wonder.

Haha, I genuinely liked the twins part as there aren't many seductive (some will say rapey lol) male twins in anime (and in media in general).

But the whole series were ok to me, maybe because I play a lot of otome games and got used to this format.

Oh I play otome games too. And I like them in general. But the show really felt creepy to me.

Also maybe I'm in depression because during the last two times I tried to play I didn't show any interest. Maybe I need the twins now, who knows?

It was poorly made tbh, but it had it's charm.

Have you tried Love 365 app? You can find the story with the exact type of boy you need (my personal fav is Kaoru Kirishima from Our Two Bedroom Story)! And I also recommend Love&Poke - it has some nice VA and you can also choose the personality types you like. Hope these games will cheer you up a bit!

Thank you so much ^·^ I wil look at them. I was trying games from PC. Charming Empire, Ozmafia and so on. Guess I'll wait a bit and try them again, since I'm not interested for now.

Only loosely anime related, but Kamachi is the one I'm worried about.
He's the author of Index, Heavy Object and a bunch of other lightnovels.
He's currently writing 5 different lightnovel titles as far as I know, and he releases 2 books per year for each.
He said he'd die if he stopped writing.

I was also going to say Dorohedoro, the author must been in mushrooms of something to think that stuff up xd

This is bit sad, but actually Cat Soup's author. She did end up committing suicide and I have seen speculation that the world she saw was same as in her stories- cruel and selfish. Knowing her fate Cat Soup is even harder to watch.

I heard that Cat Soup manga was even more weird and violent than the anime. Not that I want to check if that's true or not...

I agree with Loveless. There is a lot of abuse going on and it makes me think of how the author came up with the story. Not sure if the manga ended - I would like to check it out, but if I remember correctly it ended very abruptly and I hate "open" endings.

I personally think the author of Made in Abyss is a lolicon. And there are some ideas in the manga that I think are really fucked up, so I am quite curious on how he came up with all of that.

I haven't read the manga, but i think the tv animation is even more brutal than the OVA that is more known so I don't rly doubt it.

Berserk not just bc its fucked up but because it's so long and the art is so detailed. Mfer has been writing his sad ass comic for all day for like 30 years now. I'm not surprised he seems to be getting burnt out.

I tend to steer clear of the really fucked up side of anime but the Made in Abyss guy definitely has a few screws loose.
