@grantheaslip: I can definitely see how Berserk might not be for you (it is ultra dark after all) however, if you have any interest in the Souls series then I highly suggest watching this video.
There are other videos showcasing (some of) the Berserk references in dark souls on youtube as well. Oh, and the music is from the Berserk TV anime (ending theme) "I'm waiting so long".
If your into (or interested in) Slice of life (with comedy) shows I can recommend Working!! (also known as Wagnaria!!) and Servant x Service (same folks who did Working!!).
EDIT: I almost forgot to mention that you should definitely without question watch Time of Eve; its a science fiction show and there are only six eps.
