I don't know if this is exactly what you're looking for, but I'd like to direct you to Cromartie Koukou.

Gungrave and I think maybe Technolyze should fill you up on some dark gangster action.

If you like the anime version of Gokusen and GTO. Try the live-action version.

anime with gangster in comedy mode
shaman king - old and licensed just in case you haven't seen it.
Yu Yu Hakushu - i remember Yusuke is used to be a gangster
Super Gals - female gangster hanging around Shibuya
Fruit Basket - Touru's friend is used to be a gangster
Ouran High school Host club - only an episode with gangster.

Black Lagoon is close to what your looking for, though its actually about pirates. I recommend trying it out, its a fairly good show.

If you're looking for "grim and gritty with hyperviolent psychopaths", I can't really help therer - those don't interest me usually (too many people overly self-important in those stories for my taste).

Anime that reference gangsters but not the focus:
futokoi alternative --- sort of a surreal detective story and romance with gangsters lurking about. Some comedy, some drama.

petopeto-san --- "comi-tragic" romance with supernatural aspects. The kappa race (mer-people) are portrayed as having a gangster culture.

"Speed Grapher" may come closer to what you're looking for.... I'll throw out "Gunslinger Girl" for having the sort of depressing nihilistic feel that gangster stories often have. Both of those are licensed.

If anything i'd say Tenjou Tenge, it has fighting and the clubs there are like gangs i guess. But atleast there is action!

I also recommend checking out the live action versions of GTO and Gokusen. And try Dragonzakura while you're at it.

GTO wasn't a gangster anime. it's a school-anime with a used-to-be-gangster teacher.

Koroyoshi(sp) Ichi or something like that
Ichi the Killer is the english name, I read the manga and its very ganster-esque. I believe an Anime is out there as well, not sure on the license if it is or not. But its pretty grotesque. Its not something for the weak stomached, thats for sure.
