OBLIGATORY SCARY TIME

It's that time of the year again and I am slapping together an impromptu post about scary anime to coincide with the celebration of Halloween! This yearly event of dressing up and asking for candy from strangers is also about scary stuff (as if children getting food from strangers isn't scary enough) and anime is also a medium that has a lot of scary stuff in there too.

So this week's selection of anime has some scary stuff. BEWARE, YOU'RE IN FOR A SCARE!!! (not really)

Are there any scary anime or anime with scary elements that you love? SHARE IN THE COMMENTS BELOW! I wanna know!

Anime: School Live!

Here is an interesting show, take a cute-girl-doing-cute-things kind of show and set it in a zombie apocalypse. Do I have your attention? Yeah, this one is a definite must watch especially with that kind of setting that is actually pretty unique.

 

Anime: Ghost Stories

This is a show that has been brought over to the US and received an English dub. It was a fairly generic anime horror with kids in actual peril but when it was brought over, the US company that dubbed it, the late ADV films, changed the entire script into a comedy. So what we get is a raunchy and funny show full of jokes and ad-libs by the voice actors turning this horror anime into something quite different.

 

Anime: Paranoia Agent

This is a show that freaked me out a little bit when I first saw it on late nights on Adult Swim more than a decade ago. The show had atmosphere and mystery with different and separate characters all experiencing odd or weird phenomena that were just plain unsettling at times. It was all thanks to the late anime director  Satoshi Kon, who's made some amazing mind bending anime that just really makes your imagination go wild.

 

Anime: Sword Art Online

RIP Character development. This show killed it the second it began.
