I would love some new good horror anime, geeze.

... That's a rare achievement from the medium. Not even JoJo could do it. Something about anime never makes the horror atmosphere work. Not even a Junji Ito adaptation was well received.

However, I could recommend you shows that would make most horror anime look inadequate which veteran anime director Masayuki Kojima led. Some of the scenes of said shows do scary better than a lot of horror anime.

1.) Monster

Loading Video...

An adaptation of Naoki Urasawa's (Personal favorite mangaka of all time) manga of the same name. It's a suspense thriller following a surgical doctor hunting down a psychopath that he saved many years ago when said psychopath was still a child while he himself is pursued by authorities for murders he didn't commit. It has incredibly detailed world building filled with a fleshed out cast and is very good at setting a tone.

2. Made In Abyss

Loading Video...

Made In Abyss centers around a child explorer and her robot boy companion (cyborg, idk) in finding her mother in within a deep and wide hole within an island known as the abyss. It's world is incredibly lived in with so many lore crammed about the Abyss. It also memorable fleshed out characters, both good and bad (one of the antagonists, Bondrewd, being one of my particular favorites) and some of the most horrific scenes you'd ever see in anime, heightened because of the chibi designs. Also, the soundtrack is amazing.

I can see why. I did watch it and personally believe it's because they butchered his works with some low-quality animation and soundtrack. If you're going to translate his horror mangas into an audio-visual media, then a lot of work must be put on it...They seemed to have animated all the episodes with their asses instead, in fact, those idiots have even forgotten many basic factors in a horror story such as a proper shadowing and light. Regardless, I did watch Monster already, but not Made in Abyss.

Thanks for the suggestions, friend!

Nope.

I might check out later.

@andromeda101: Made In Abyss is really good, surprised you haven’t seen it yet. It’s more of an adventure story than a horror though.

Angel of Death is pretty decent. It’s a little goofy at times, but overall it does a really good job at capturing that isolated, survival horror game, feeling.

Solid choices indeed.

Angels of Death, huh? Was thinking of checking it and the reviews were good so I might in the future.

@andromeda101: Have you checked out Satoshi Kon's "Paranoia Agent", btw?

It's basically a thriller that provides terrific commentary on stress attained from society.

Steins;Gate 0 was inferior to the original. Could have been better.

Paranoia Agent was a... weird anime. And that's something I don't usually say for stuff I watch.

Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War/Wants To Be Confessed To is really, really good. Really far better than you'd expect. If anyone's looking for a good RomCom, I can only recommend it.

@jtk6w7: Oh, so you want thrillers? they are not really horror, but i'll recommend you some:

1. Future Diary

2. Monster

3. parasyte the Maxim

4. Higurashi

5. Umineko (the VN is better, but the anime is ok)

Higurashi will be super random confusing at first. Just remember, all will make sense eventually.

Higurashi resets itself every certain amount of episodes to play out a new scenario/route, so it might seem weird at first

Ah, does anyone here plans to watch Junji Ito's Uzumaki?

Loading Video...

Just making a small advertisement, heh. I love his works and as posted above, they didn't justice to them with the last adaption. Not only Uzumaki is going to be full black-white, but the compositor is even the same from the movie Hereditary.

@onlyoneempereor: I'd suggest better written manga (Heck, I find the Pre-Z Dragon Ball era to be better written than Z and Super in canon) but If you really want to get into Dragon Ball Z, Start with Saiyan Saga. It's the beginning of the Z era. Dragon Ball Volume 14 Chapter 195

@onlyoneempereor: There are. Look it up online.

Can't say for Super. Although the fight scenes don't drag that much but The original Dragon Ball era has the heart that none of it's sequel eras had.

Haven't watched it but I have heard that the anime was actually decent. I also heard it peaks a bit early though.

One episode into "Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken" and it already check marks what I want from a media production focused anime. The importance of concept art and story boarding is emphasized early on alongside compassion and creativity in world building when it comes to creating world building and lore.

Plus, genuinely likable characters and a fun atmosphere doesn't hurt. Definitely an early contender of Best Anime Of The Season.

(Also, It's from Masaaki Yuasa and Science Saru. That's a sign of quality pedigree).

Never watched it, but maybe Flip Flappers might be something you'd watch?

Have you seen Texhnolyze? Ik some peeps who consider that as one of their top 3s. Even though I think it's paced horribly.
