Halloween is soon approaching this October. And funny enough – it’s gonna be a Halloween to remember.
Countries, towns and cities were on lockdown last year, though coronavirus is still causing issues. The difference now is things have calmed down worldwide!
Anime for Halloween:
1. Gakkou Gurashi
Gakkou Gurashi is all about zombies, horror, and a taste of PTSD and mental illness to go with it.
It’s not your average horror
Yuki Takeya, the pink haired girl is one of the main characters. And is the victim as far as PTSD.
All characters are forced to live in school and survive on the little food they have, in the pandemic world they find themselves in.
2. Blue Exorcist
Blue Exorcist is an
Growing up like this has made life a b*tch for Rin Okumura, since most have shunned and even bullied him for it. Causing him to get into fights and trouble.
Halloween isn’t all about blood, violence, or horror in particular. And besides – Blue Exorcist fits the mood.
3. Mirai Nikki
Mirai Nikki is another official horror
Yuno Gasai, one half of the main characters, is one of the reasons the Yandere trope is so popular.
Yuki Amano, the other MC, is being stalked by her. But the
Akame Ga Kill
From the first episode this
After all – the story and what’s happening within it is horrific in itself. So it’s only natural that comes with it.
Blood+ is a horror
In between you have monsters called Chiropterans, which are demons, but the main characters themselves aren’t too far from that either.
Nowhere near as violent as
6. Black Bullet
Black Bullet is about the Gastrea, a type of monster that almost destroys Tokyo. And a set of children infected with the Gastrea virus.
These children are called “the cursed children” because of it, and humans fear them. Even though they protect humans with their supernatural powers.
Black Bullet is darker than lets say, Blood+ in its own ways. And has similarities with Attack On Titan.
Shiki is an
Doctor Toshio, one of the most relevant characters in Shiki, becomes a great character as the
Without spoiling too much, this
8. D. Gray Man
D. Gray Man is like a “demon” version of Bleach, or another comparable Shonen with dark elements.
Allen Walker, the main character, is able to see demons, ghosts and the dead in general. His left eye is cursed. Along with his hand.
Just like Bleach, in this
Another is a classic horror series that represents horror every step of the way.
It’s one bad thing right after another, and usually it’s graphic and obscene.
The main character: Mei Misaki is an
There’s a series of events playing out in her school, where students and everyone nearby is dying at random. Sometimes by suicide or other extreme methods that can cause death.
Being the type of
The main character: Light Yagami ends up with a
The suspense, the outcomes, and the thought process that goes into the episodes puts
11. Goblin Slayer
Goblin Slayer is overhyped as a horror series, meaning fans put too much focus on the first episode.
The 1st episode is one of the most dramatic, savage, brutal introductions to a horror
Even with all that said, it’s a decent
You can think of it like a “horror” version of Konosuba or something along those lines.
12. God Eater
God Eater is one of the most violent, detestable series on this list. The kind of things you see in this
Everything looks good in God Eater and is done in a way most
A perfect match for Halloween.
13. Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress
Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress is about a monster called Kabani, and the two main characters who share Kabani blood.
This makes them supernaturally strong.
They use this power to fight against the Kabani and protect what they have left of the world the Kabani has torn away from them, and human society on a whole.
It’s an underrated series that’s overshadowed by more popular shows like Attack On Titan (same studio).
14. Psychic Detective Yakumo
Psychic Detective Yakumo is about Yakumo, a guy with an eye that can see spirits. Similar to how Allen Walker from D. Gray Man can see spirits with one eye in particular.
A girl named Haruka runs into Yakumo because of an incident, and they both end up sticking by each other as Yakumo heads out for detective work.
Ghosts, spirits, spooky scenes and cases, this is what you can expect to see from this
It’s surprisingly good for an obscure
15. Blood C
Blood C is an
It’s considered one of the bloodiest
You can’t go in expecting Blood C to be a masterpiece of a series with stellar writing or a phenomenal plot. It’s not gonna happen.
But if you go in expecting horror and something fit for Halloween, there’s no complaints. It fits the bill.
Mieruko Chan is a new
She ignores them to avoid anything bad from happening, and to keep them at bay so they don’t pursue her. But it’s written in a comedic, but still horrific kind of way.
She has bags under her eyes because of the torment and abuse from ghosts who stalk her, provoke, and try to force her into acknowledging their existence.
17. Elfen Lied
Elfen Lied is a cruel
These vectors can rip anything to pieces from a distance, and this plays into the bloody mess and violence as soon as episode 1 begins.
The plot is about
She runs into Kouta, a guy who lets her live with him after finding her unconscious on a beach.
Expect some twisted romance, sickening aspects like child abuse and animal abuse, and hypocrisy which shows the darkest sides of human nature.
18. Soul Eater
Soul Eater is one of the most Halloween-like
It’s about a school ran by Lord Death, a
The art style is still fresh and modern.
19. Owari No Seraph
Owari No Seraph is about vampires, their war against humans, and the struggle for survival for the human race. It’s made by WIT Studios.
The first episode is tragic, and is the basis for the plot, story, and the main characters and what they plan to do.
Under the orders of The Moon Demon Company, soldiers trained to fight vampires with special swords and weapons are sent out on missions.
There’s more to what the
- Hell Girl.
- Sankarea: Undying Love.
- Tokyo Ghoul.
- Corpse Party.
- Happy Sugar Life.
