If you’re looking for spooks, scares, and blood-curdling scenarios, then one thing or another, you’re looking for Horror Anime.
In the Anime world, there’s only just a handful bunch of shows wherein the word “horror” comes true to its name. Here is our list of Top 10 Best Horror Anime.
10. Attack on Titan
Attack on Titan is none other than the larger-than-life dreadful anime. While this show is not, by any means, a horror anime that thrives in the original elements of horror, it does demonstrate a new kind of fear that bases itself from gore and monstrosities capable of shutting down all hope and conveying-on a feeling of despair.
Although action is the strongest point of this name, horror synchronizes very well with that factor, rendering this show heart-jumping and shockingly good at its prime moments.
9. Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu (Parasyte -The Maxim-)
Aliens might indeed exist in all sorts of forms, but for this anime aliens can’t get any more gruesome than the parasytes. The parasytes might look just like ordinary worms in their early stage but, once they infest a human’s brain and make it a host, that human becomes a terrifying creature capable of shape-shifting in all kinds of disgusting ways.
And did I ever mention that they can blend fairly well with the rest of humanity and may decide to devour anyone at their whims? Truly horrifying!
It may not be scary to all on a fictional level, but once you come to think of all the possibilities and relate to it on a much higher realistic level, you’d figure out just how dreadful it is.
8. Terra Formars
More than ghosts, demons, the darkness, killers, blood, aliens, and even death, there’s one irrational fear that makes most people panic in terror. That grisly fear is the fear of cockroaches!
For Terra Formars, we’re not just talking about normal cockroaches – we’re talking about – ginormous mutated cockroaches!
And given the immense survival capabilities and sheer numbers of cockroaches, humanity might just have found their ultimate foe for survival in this universe.
7. Elfen Lied
Though if you decide to watch it, you’re in for more horrid scenes but also, a great sad story. Here we do encourage you continuing it on the manga after watching it though, because the manga has a better and much in-depth resolution and story than the anime.
