8. Deadman Wonderland:
This anime is absolutely brilliant, I love it, but I don’t recommend watching it! Deadman Wonderland is one of those masterpieces which for some reason, never got a second season. You are just left there with a lot of questions about the whole story as the anime only has 12 episodes. I would recommend that you read the manga instead, for a better understanding of the show. However, if you do decide to watch it, the first season is a complete masterpiece.
It looked like it would be a normal day for Ganta Igarashi and his classmates. They were preparing to go on a class field trip to a certain prison amusement park called “Deadman Wonderland”, where the convicts perform dangerous acts for the onlookers’ amusement. However, Ganta’s life is quickly turned upside down when his whole class gets massacred by a mysterious man. Ganta gets framed for the whole incident and is sentenced to death. Now, this took a huge turn!
7. Corpse Party:
This anime is guaranteed to drive you insane. Corpse Party is a very disturbing horror anime that will leave you speechless. This anime is based on a game of the same name. This anime only has 4 episodes, and it truly manages to masterfully fit the whole story in only those 4 episodes. To be very honest, the characters in this anime were very generic and not very memorable, but all the other aspects of this show are just brilliant.
The plot follows the story of nine students who are gathered in their high school at night to bid farewell to a friend. They perform a sort of ritual for them to remain friends forever, using small paper charms shaped like dolls. However, the students do not realize that these charms are connected to Heavenly Host Academy, an elementary school that was destroyed years ago after a series of gruesome murders took place.
Shiki is a horror-thriller anime about vampires. Vampires are not a joke; they are supposed to terrifying monsters who suck the life out of a human. However, in many anime, vampires are shown as these kinds of friendly creatures, who can live together with humans. Shiki is one of the few shows, which actually gives justice to these mythical creatures. Shiki may not look the part at first glance, but don’t be fooled as there is actually quite a deep plot to this series.
