suggestions for depressing anime

I'm not sure how to quite word this, so excuse me if I contradict myself. I'm looking for tv series(no movies), something like Saikano, which I finally watched fully today for the first time(watched only the 1st 4 eps, like 6 or 7 yrs ago) and I'm looking for more anime like it. I DON'T want any titles with comedic elements in it(like Clannad), preferably a romance/drama type of show. I'd prefer many of the chars(or at least the mains) to have a solid serious tone for 90% of the show. Type of show is irrelevant, but I don't prefer anything that uses the romance theme as a side element unless it's really filled with drama. Something like Saikano or Casshern SINS would be nice

Texhnolyze is very depressing.
Gunslinger Girl is fairly depressing.
It's been years since I saw it, but I'm pretty sure Gungrave was a downer throughout.
Hoshi no Koe is a small slice of depressing.
Hotaru no Haka is a study in depressing.
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien is an active, malicious sort of depressing.
Devilman is always pretty depressing. I won't direct you to it, because I can't really call it entertainment, but the final OVA of the parent series has the girlfriend cut up and decapitated, the protagonist eating young girl allies, and the the world ending (don't rag me about spoilers, it's just a single episode that no ones going to watch anyways).

You'll probably like Texhnolyze for the way it portrays humanity. At the end especially.

As suggested by another user in the other thread, Koi Kaze. There are moments where there is supposed to be some sort of fun and comic relief, however, the fail miserably due to the underlying context.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
