I've seen several..Gantz, for one. After seeing that..well it's very unsettling. Another one is Gilgamesh. There's just something about this anime..I can't articulate. Then there is Shigurui: Death Frenzy. It's gory, it's horrifying and based on historical fact, truly..mind messing caliber.


I didn't find Gantz to be too disturbing, it was just a lot of death. Also, it lost any momentum from that terrible ending.

I feel the same way about School Days..nothing really disturbing there. For me, no surprise, its what happens when you mess with unbalanced females. The ending was no surprise, gory..yes.

As for Gantz, it wasn't disturbing so much as it was weird. It did leave an impression..but I can't say just what it was. It certainly is one that stays with you. There have been other anime that "mess" with my mind, that I find disturbing....like Togainu no Chi, Paprika, When They Cry, Ai no Kusabi, and Koi Kaze. Maybe I think too much about the subject matter. And really..one person's "disturbing" is another's "meh".

.......and then there is Urotsukidōji.

2 anime I really need to watch, Serial Experiments Lain and Texhnolyze.

I have never even heard of those two and Serial Experiments Lain is something you definitely need to watch. Definitely a crazy mindfuck

Ghost in the shell tv series still gives me a headache when I try and understand what they are talking about.

Anime that messes with my head pretty much all Harem anime, on the one side being surrounded by women who all I want you is good BUT I was married for 10 years and I know there is no way any women are truly like that..

I haven't read all the comments but has anyone mentioned Eden of the East ? I mean the whole " here is XXXX billion pounds and now make this country or else does seem plausible and wrong at the same time!

Madoka Magika was...special. The artwork is amazing, but I often asked myself if I was on drugs during the fight scenes.

I still wish I hadn't watched the End of Evangelion.

It was great, but I shouldn't have watched it.


Yeah, I just finished the whole series. I guess I will go read some Diary of Anne Frank, watch Requiem for a Dream, you know, do anything that is less disturbing than what I just watched . I can't even get too messed up though because I'm too giddy by how damn brilliant the whole saga is

Monster is a good one but my choice would be...

Kaiji : Ultimate Survivor , such an intense psychological anime... Really felt vulnerable while watching it... Never experienced anything close to it before.

Gantz

this show really brings on a new look of the "afterlife" and really gets you thinking about what happens in this world. :p

It's not exactly a mind screw, but I enjoyed "Shiki." A lot going in within the show. Will always keep you guessing.

Well too me it's not really mind-fucking, but since people post stuff like Attack on Titan I guess I can refer this to anyone looking for a good action/horror/psychological anime
Deadman Wonderland
