Best Horror Anime For You To Watch This Quarantine!
1. The Promised Neverland
Genres: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Mal Rating: 8.67
Starting off the list is an anime which has mystery elements on par with the renowned Attack on titan. This is probably the best horror anime of 2019. I can safely assure you that watching each episode will make you crave for more!
The Promised Neverland is a very dark anime where orphans have unique numbers on their body and they live with a guardian who appears to be caring on the outside, but 3 brave orphans find the true motives of their “mama”.
Season 2 is confirmed to be released on 2021.
A must watch anime even if you are not a horror genre fan because The Promised Neverland is a true masterpiece!
2. Tokyo Ghoul
Episodes: 48 + 2 OVAs
Genres: Horror, Seinen, Psychological
Mal Rating: 7.85
How could this list be complete without Tokyo Ghoul?
Ghouls are carnivorous eating beings that feed on human flesh. They look similar to normal humans. However they posses enormous strength and heightened physical abilities.
Tokyo Ghoul is one of the most popular anime which is about a boy named Kaneki who wanted to date a girl. But to his dismay, he realized that the girl was none other than a Ghoul! Things don’t always go as planned, do they?
This is one of the shows I really liked and without a doubt binge watch worthy anime during this quarantine.
Genres: Horror, Seinen, Sci-Fi
Mal Rating: 8.45
Another anime which shares similarities with Tokyo Ghoul is Parasyte.
The story is based on creatures known as Parasites who need a host human to survive. Unfortunately, the protagonist finds himself in trouble when he becomes a victim of one of the parasites.
However, the parasite fails to take control of the brain thus the protagonist acquires the abilities of the parasite while retaining consciousness. Because of this, he becomes the center of attention to other hostile parasites who successfully managed to obtain a host.
If you liked Tokyo Ghoul, you will enjoy this anime for sure!
4. Highschool of the Dead
Episodes: 12 + 1 OVA
Genres: Horror, Ecchi, Supernatural
Mal Rating: 7.21
This anime is a bizarre one because it has a horror and ecchi theme.
Sounds weird, right?
Highschool of the Dead is all about teenagers who find themselves surrounded by zombies thus sparking chaos within the school. The crew must remove every obstacle in their way for survival. Unusual in this situation, human’s desire grows to satisfy their needs before their death.
If you love gore anime, this is definitely the anime for you as you will get to see slashing and shooting a ton of stubborn zombies.
