Although I generally really like the Haruhi Suzumiya series (especially the movie), the Endless Eight arc was so traumatizing (especially considering I did all eight in a marathorn play) that is a few hours of my life I will never get back

Anyway, for me I have to say the most disturbing thing I've ever seen was Higurashi: When They Cry. I don't know if it happens the same way in the anime, I admit I only saw a few episodes, but in the manga the first story arc ends with the main character ripping his own throat out. That was my first encounter with a story like that, and it seriously disturbed me for a while. The sharp contrast between how that story starts and how it ends is really shocking, I never saw it coming.


Oooo. I've been reading the manga also - wait till you read 'Cotton Drifting Arc part 2'. That shit was disturbing especially the ending where it just scared the shit out of me. There were several unexpected art that freaked me. As for the anime, I've seen clips but the manga is really making me want to watch it. The scenes were pretty brutal and graphic in Higurashi. They even showed one character extracting another character's fingernails... Ugh, the thought of that is...

If you think marathoning Endless Eight was bad, feel sorry for those of us who watched it as it aired, our hopes for something new slowly being crushed with each passing week. The only bright side of it was the absolute joy felt when it finally ended.

Anyway, I wouldn't say I was traumatised by it, but the first arc of Mononoke made me incredibly uncomfortable the first time I watched it, especially a certain scene. Without going into detail, old abortion methods... tend to be highly unpleasant

the ending of School days have been known to traumatize people, but it is still a great anime, and as some people have said before me on here DO NOT WATCH BOKU NO PICO, not even if your life depends on it.

Traumatizing may be over exaggerating a bit, but for me Demon Lord Dante was really bad. Around episode 10 (I think) they start twisting stories from the bible in the weirdest ways.... While I was watching it my reaction was "What in the hell? Who comes up with this?!" ....That and the english dub is the worst thing I have ever heard. Now whenever I watch anything with a bad dub I remember Demon Lord Dante, and I promptly stop cringing because I know it could be so much worse. I wonder how I made it through the whole series....

Elfen lied was the first anime to show me that people in an anime, are in fact capable of death, and not just death. Eviscerating, painful, horrifying death. Made me want to drive out to a bar, sit by myself while smokin' a cig with an empty glass of alcohol in front of me while I ponder the anime. The bar tender would ask, "Ey', buddy, s'wrong witcha?" At that moment, I would freak out, go into some type of shock, and attempt to kill the bartender. It's a good thing though I have strong willpower, so I didn't do any of this!

LOL I was one of those people that watched it as it aired. I was thoroughly pissed off at my computer by the last episode

I found Bible Black as a kid thinking it was a dark theme anime. This was before I even KNEW there was such thing as hentai or that sort of stuff. Needless to say, and my roommates are witnesses of this when THEY first heard of it, I scream in terror whenever I hear the words Bible Black.

Thankfully, I can type it out with only a cringe.

The only scene that has ever traumatized the hell out of me is something I saw in End of Evangelion.

Monster was a traumatizing thriller. Claymore had its moments as well.

There are a lot of gory anime out there that are not realistic enough for me to really feel for the characters. I need a lot of mood setting, emotional and psychological mindfucks to really get into it and be all FUCK NO OMG FUCK FUCK FUCK. /slashes wrist

However I gotta say the two works that really traumatized the heck out of me were not anime at all but manga. The first is the horror manga Tomie by Junji Ito, and the second is Zankokuna Kami ga Shihai Suru/A Cruel God Reigns (a BL novel) by Hagio Moto, both of which I have not actually completed... for various psychological reasons

I was introduced to anime by a classmate of mine. He gave me an unmarked box of CD's. I popped one into my computer, and it was, "La Blue Girl." This was back in elementary school btw. That shit was messed up dude. Messed up!

Then come middle school, a different classmate tried to get me into anime porn, I was willing to give it a shot. I had no idea what the fuck the anime was called, but man, dicks on everything. Doorknobs, bed posts, carpets, windows, tentacle dicks, flying dicks, bat dicks, bird dicks, (yes I know they all fly but they were all different.) dicks as hands, feet, and head. Girls with dicks, girls with dick breasts.
Ever since then, I stuck to real girls. Less dicks to worry about.


Elfen Lied for the gore part. I saw this on a fan-sub site. The plot summery caught my attention. I thought this was going to be a drama with elements of horror. I just didn't know...I just didn't know.
I found out shit just got real in the first 2 minutes. I made it a point to watch it to the end. No matter how fucked up it was. I am glad I did though. This Anime is the first time ever I cried to an anime. Few years later I came across a scan-lation site. Saw it had Elfen Lied.
This is the first manga/printed media to make me cry as hard as I did. I went and bought the DVD set and manga.
I still tear up from time to time when I remember certain scenes.
*I still hum the opening song every now and then.*

Second one that forced me to pause to stop crying was [url=http://www.crunchyroll.com/erin] Erin Episode 7. I was on the verge on giving up on this anime until I saw that episode. (Do NOT just go watch Ep. 7. You have to watch 1-6 to get the impact of it. Especially ep.6) I know that since then, every time I came home from work, the first thing I'd do was watch it until bed time, and did so everyday. At the time I was working double shifts, man it was torture at work. All I could think about was the this anime.

Some of you will look at my profile pic, (yes that is me) and may get the wrong idea, but ever since Elfen Lied, I have been one big 'ol softy. I can't even kill insects without feeling bad.
