October Horror Anime Binge?

Yup, that’s right my plan for this month is to literally binge a ton of horror animes. I got this idea while scrolling through Shiki posts on Tumblr, as Shiki was included in quite a few. So, taking from their recommendations and past animes I would want to rewatch I have compiled a list of 9 animes so without further to do let’s jump into this.

To Watch:

Corpse Party

Corpse Party

I am unclear if the RPG game or the anime came out first but I do have general aspect of what it will be like because I have watched Cryaotic’s playthrough of the RPG game. However, this was a year or so ago so based on what I remember all these friends are playing with a paper doll where they rip it and have to keep the piece of a doll on them at all times; this symbolizes their friendship. Without warning the school crumbles beneath their feet and they are all transported to different dimensions. Well, at least that’s what happens in the RPG game.

Dub Available: No

Death Parade

Death Parade

A white-haired bartender and story that will mess with your heart are seriously all I know about this anime. I want to go into these animes with knowing the least amount possible. It was on Kageko’s masterpost on Tumblr. It came out a few years ago and it made a huge impact in the anime community but I was trying to be a hipster at that time so I wasn’t interested.

Dub Available: Yes

Ghost Stories:

Ghost Stories

I’ll be upfront with you there’s no harm in that the main reason why this is on the list is that every time I try to talk about Ghost Hunt my boyfriend tries to be funny and say, Ghost Hunt? Don’t you mean Ghost Stories? And well the opening sounds pretty cool. It’s an anime that came out in the early 2000’s and from my understanding, these kids find out that their school building is hunted.

Dub Available: Yes

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

The way Kageko on Tumblr described why it was on completely interested me. Apparently, this anime is creepy as all get out. Which is something I look for in a good anime. I love being so crept out that I have to pause the show for a couple of seconds and have to calm done a little, that’s one of the reasons why Tatsumi is my favorite character from Shiki. This anime takes place in another small village similar to Sotoba and then things take a gruesome turn.

Dub Available: Yes

Parasyte: The Maxim

Parasyte The Maxim

Again, I hardly know anything about this anime. I do know that this parasite tries to take over this man but ultimately fails and get stuck in his right hand. I think that concept is cool and want to know the full story and how the guy deals with it.

Dub Available: Yes

Yami Shibai

Yami Shibai

These a shorter length stories that will scare you to piece not only that but they are creepy. Those are both things I look for and I cannot wait to start this one.

Dub Available: No

To Rewatch

Another

Another

I fell in love with this anime last year during the summer, I literally watched it in one sitting I was so obsessed. Typical horror story new kid moves into town and doesn’t know exactly what is going on. Then one by one horror strikes each of the students in his class a different way.

Dub Available: Yes

Deadman Wonderland

Deadman Wonderland

Young school kid accused of the murders of his fellow classmates get locked inside a prison amusement park. This anime has the perfect amount of gore and even a few creepy characters my favorite being Toto. I’ve watched this time and time again and think its 100% appropriate for the Halloween Season.

Dub Available: Yes

Ghost Hunt

Ghost Hunt

I love this anime so much. It’s on the longer side but I started watching it in December 2014 I stayed up all night and then ditched school the next day in order to keep watching it. It follows the ghost hunting adventures of Mei and Naru. Some of the cases take a single episode to solve will other can take up to 4. The last two cases are freaky as hell and always keep me on the edge of my seat regardless of how many times I’ve seen them

This is actually the first anime I started watching of the October binge month.

Dub Available: Yes

Bonus Anime

Terror in Resonance

Terror In Resonance

I wouldn’t really classify this anime as horror but maybe it could be considered a psychological thriller. Regardless, this is an anime that I think could fit in with the more edgy Halloween vibe. If I can get around to watching this anime again it would be great but it is by no means at the top of priority list.

In this anime, it follows 2 boys, Nine and Twelve. They have a grudge to take care of against Japan and they plan to follow through with their plan. The way this anime is executed is really the main factor of why I’m attempting to slide it onto this list. There’s so much suspense at moments that you are left clinging to the edge of your seat.

Some of these animes I am including because I have already watched them and others have been inspired off of Kageko’s Tumblr post so I can not take full credit for this entire list.

None of this belongs to me, the animes and stories belong to the proper owners and I got the images from Google and they do not belong to me either. All rights go to the proper owners.
