Anime with high chance of death?

Question

Please recommend anime where the characters cannot afford to make mistake. Just one mistake, then you are dead. For example, hunter x hunter, demon slayer, jujutsu kaisen, attack titan. Thank you.

I guess you mean a series with lot of suspence and action so maybe most of the fate anime series. Some of the best I could recommend as a starting point are Fate/zero and Fate/stay night. A lot of people on this forum like this series ( I am one of them) so I'm sure you will at least enjoy it 😁.

Noir has quite a high 'body count' per episode.
Mireille and Kirika are highly trained and deadly assassins, but they're up against a determined adversary and can't afford to make mistakes.

I've got a few which have a high chance of death for the characters that I've seen;

All the Fate shows. I thing the lowest body count goes to Babylonia - but that still has a high body count of supporting characters compared to other anime. Fate Zero has the highest body count of the series, I think. Not many make it through it, and those that make it through and are better off at the end are even fewer. 

Got to plug Berserk 1997, won't ruin the ending of the show if you've not seen it yet but the term Betrayal gets a whole new meaning. 

Psycho Pass also has a decent body count, and because the characters are well developed and rounded (even the Villain is enjoyable and a guy you might route for by the series climax) it makes the 'deaths' feel really gut punching. 

Death Note also has a very high body count, I will say less important characters who are sort of throw away make up the bulk but some supporting and even main characters get killed off during the shows run so another great high body count show to check out. 

Steins Gate sort of has a high body count... if you count different world line versions of a specific character getting murdered over and over again by the half way point onwards as adding to the body count of the show. 

Finally Madoka Magica for a magical girl show has a pretty respectable body count I wouldn't rank it alongside Berserk, Fate, Psycho Pass or Death Note but I feel it pretty equal to Steins Gate level. 

Also all the aforementioned shows defiantly have the feeling of one mistake equals instant death in a lot of situations.

The Promised Neverland season 1 was suspenseful enough, not sure about season 2 though.

Devil Man - a young man gains demonic powers and uses them to fight devils. One slip and he dies. Lots of gore in this one...some nudity too.
