Horror is a very complex genre. This genre is complex because sometimes, no matter how hard a show tries, it just isn’t scary. Especially for anime, it is very hard to get a horrid vibe going around the whole series. But of course, there are still a lot of golden horror anime titles which you can go and watch right now. Today, I’ll be giving you a list of the Top 10 best horror anime ever.
Let’s get on with this list.
10. Shinsekai Yori:
Shinsekai Yori is a true psychological horror show which will most definitely cause shivers to run down your spine. The plot of this anime is not very eye-catching, but once you get started, there is no way to stop watching it. This anime has that trope of starting off the anime with little kids and ending it with the kids being all grown-up. Many anime try to adopt that trope, but none do it quite as masterfully as this show. If you have never watched a horror anime before, then this anime is for you.
This anime follows the story of a 12-year-old girl named Saki Watanabe who has just awakened to her psychic powers. At Sage academy, she is joined by her friends, the mischievous Satoru Asahina, the shy Mamoru Itou, the cheerful Maria Akizuki, and Shun Aonuma, a mysterious boy whom Saki admires.
9. Mirai Nikki:
Mirai Nikki is a fast-paced romantic-horror anime, which is very popular amongst the whole anime community. The anime community has a major love-hate relationship with this show. As for me, I absolutely loved this show. The concept of the show is very unique, and this concept got executed in a very beautiful way. This anime has brilliantly animated fight scenes. Once you get started with this show, you won’t be able to stop yourself.
This anime follows the story of Yukiteru Amano. A lonely high school student, who spends his days writing a diary on his cellphone, while conversing with his two imaginary friends Deus Ex Machina, who is the god of time and space, and Murmur, the god’s servant. One day, Deus reveals himself to be an actual entity and grants Yukiteru a “Random Diary”, which shows highly descriptive entries based on the future and forces him into a bloody battle royale with 11 other holders of similarly powerful future diaries.
