List Rules Vote up what you believe to be the best anime series with Goth themes and characters.

All Gothic anime is not necessarily a genre, it's a very common theme that runs throughout many anime series. For this list we rank the best "Gothic" anime of all time, with the help of your votes. What are some anime series with Gothic characters that you might recognize? xxxHOLiC, Black Butler, and Hellsing are all fairly well known titles that fit the criteria. Since it's not a well defined genre, not everyone will have the same opinion of what constitutes a good Gothic anime series but we hope you can add some good titles to this poll that you would recommend to other anime fans.

Vote up your favorite Goth anime titles below and downvote (but only if you've seen them) any shows that you don't think are very good.
