My personal favorite is Shiki. Vampire anime but kinda scary and really mysterious.

WTF, Another is winning a HORROR battle o_O
Another wasn't even scary, just a little creepy.
Higurashi is true horror.

Another was like watching Ghost Ship, so very predictable.
Got bored of it and put it on-hold.
If Ghost Ship was a 12 episodes anime, I'd drop it.

"There are three conditions to terrify someone. Do you know what they are? One, the monster can't speak. Two, the monster has to be unidentifiable. Three, it's meaningless if the monster can die."
- Touko Aozaki, Kara no Kyoukai

Although the quote is totally unrelated to "Higurashi" and "Another", Touko Aozaki gives us a simple criteria what to expect about horror anime/movie. "Another" has cleared all three condition making a great horror anime. Higurashi in my opinion, the story is more like a murder mystery piecing the together piece of a jigsaw puzzle than anime that really disturbed people.

it's the crazy eyes

Higurashi made crazy anime eyes so unnerving that even when you just see a photo of them it fucks with your head.


this is part of why I think Higurashi is the scarier show.


I've watched several horror films like Another before. Th closest thing to Higurashi I have watched before is Meet the Feebles. . .and that's not even the same kind of creepy.

Well, Higurashi had a lot of seasons while Another only had 12 episodes to deliver so its kind of unfair, but after watching both, I must award the title to Higurashi. The first few episodes of the series gave me chills! Although I must say, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira is horrible. I HATE what they did to the series. Sure, I get that its an OVA. Sure, I get it should be a little comical. But the amount of ecchi in it was horrible. I couldn't finish watching it. I stopped midway into the second episode. But other than the mishap that was Kira, I loved Higurashi in general.

Higurashi was weird.
Another is well made.
I prefer Shiki to any other horror though, if I feel depressed enough.

Only the first part of Higurashi was really scary. It kind of went down from the first arc and onwards.
Another was a bit similar, it was kind of scary cause I though Misaki Mei was the dead student. The horror kind of disappeared after that even though the last episodes were creepy enough.
Another wins this.

Why are we having a poll about a horror anime vs a comedy anime?

Could anybody tell me a bit more about Shiki? I'm considering watching it and I love the horror genre.
