    Now these are the series I recommend as shock therapy for the 'goth' inclined...

    First is the shoujo equivalent of 'Neon Genesis Evangelion', the series known as 'Saikano' (a.k.a. 'She, the Ultimate Weapon')...

    And as the last resort, there's a series distributed in Region 1 under the name of 'Now and Then, Here and There', which delves into the subject of child soldiers, torture, child rape, mob violence, and a mad leader bent on destroying the world...

    Im glad you recomended Saikano...
    It's brought me out of my bad mood a bit,
    Mostly due to the fact that the way Shuji describes Chise in the beginning, it kinda reminded me of the girl I like... (the reason why Im in the mood in the first place)
    Its weird how similar Chise is to her, they even have the same hair? Maybe it's just me thinking about her a little too much >< Adunno.

    Odd, whenever I am in a piss poor mood I would much rather watch a crazy comedy then something dark and depressing.

    Anyways, 2nd Now and Then, Here and There. It is the anime equivalent of Requiem for a Dream for me. Amazingly good, but so depressing that I cannot bring myself to watch it again.

    I cant stand anything happy when Im in a bad mood, makes me feel as if Im missing out...

    I've noticed a lot of these are about things like war, and post-apocalyptic society, are these traits common in dark anime?

    It is a common theme in dark anime yeah. Probably an emotional link to WW2. Alot of them seem to involve child soldiers as well. Not sure what that is from, though.

    Jin Roh Wolfbrigade was very depressing. That might suit you, sounds similiar to "now and then, here and there."
