It’s not all magic and elves, sometimes there’s a violent dose of bloodshed in fantasy anime. For this list we’re looking at some dark fantasy anime that are full of action, scary elements, terrifying monsters and every horror in-between. As such you can expect shows like The Rising of the Shield Hero, Attack on Titan, Clamore, Goblin Slayer, Berserk, Akame Ga Kill, Re:Zero, Overlord, Drifters, Made in Abyss, and many more to appear along the way. If you’re looking for orc, demon, and goblin anime fights, look no further.

  1. Nice 👍 to put a face to the voice on the videos……….not quite what I imagined.
    Do the same for the others

  2. I don’t think Drifters is THAT dark. It has a lot of comedy, actually.

  3. For a moment ya got me worried that Berserk wasn’t gonna make it into the top 10… Good number 2 and 3 picks too
