I've always liked movies with evil children. So now I'm looking for mangas with evil kids. Boy or girl does not matter. Any genre/demographic is fine but please no parody characters or kids who are evil for the sake of comedy.

The character needs to be a child (max 14-15) and be evil/sadistic/twisted/psychotic. I don't want children who are simply ruthless, that's not enough. The character needs to be an actual villain or antagonist and get enjoyment out of killing and hurting people, though they can still be treated somewhat sympathetically.

I'm looking for characters like Hansel and Gretel from Black Lagoon, Kousuke Kira from Btooom!, Hibana Daida from Deadman Wonderland and Q from Bungou Stray Dogs. I don't want characters like Ciel or Killua.

Feel free to ask if you need me to clarify something.

I'm not sure if this fits your description, but when I read your post the first thing I thought of is Monster.

I really like this trope too so I have a few recommendations!

Nishi from Gantz
Reisuke from Future Diary
Isaac from Eternal Sabbath
Masato from Mermaid Saga

Already read Monster (amazing manga) and young Johan definitely fits - super interesting character by the way.

I've read Gantz and Mirai Nikki. Man Reisuke was such a creepy (but oddly adorable) character!

Thanks for Eternal Sabbath and Mermaid Saga though! I'll check them out.

Kami no Kodomo - It really is genuinely disturbing, about a young sociopath serial killer. It's rather graphic and the character is truly loathsome. He is 17 at the end, but most of it takes place when he is younger.

Thank you for the rec! The art took some time to get used to but it was a great and disturbing read! Man, the mc was so creepy and awful. Thanks again!

It's based off a game, but Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo - Danganronpa Another Episode and Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo - Danganronpa Another Episode - Genocider Mode fits to a T. (All the villains are murderous elementary school students.) They're also sequels, though, so I'm not sure how much enjoyment you'll get out of them if you're not already familiar with the Danganronpa franchise.

Also, of course Full Metal Alchemist has one, though this might be too obvious of a rec.

@Suxinn - I have some slight knowledge of Danganronpa, I've watched the anime and I own the visual novels, I just haven't played them yet. So I might check out the manga, though I think I'll wait until I finished the games.

I haven't actually read FMA, although I do know what character you are talking about. I have planned to read it for ages so thank you for reminding me that I need to get started on it, haha.

@princess_bubblegum - Bastard looks really promising. I'll definitely check it out!

Thank you both for the recs!

You can try Youjo Senki if you haven't already. The mc is a child who is often referred to as "a monster in the form of a little girl". It's a war anime but its moreso about the mc and her devious ways.

The manga was turned into an anime this season and I thought it was good, but it's quite different from the manga. I do suggest reading the manga though.

Why am I like this

I've already watched the anime, but I'm thinking of reading the manga as I really liked it. Thank you for the rec though, Tanya is awesome!
