Horror anime is not really my type of anime that I generally watch, because it's rare for a horror anime to appear because it often is either boring or strangely done.

I never actually watched a horror anime; i just read the manga version though if I have to choose then:

Tasogare otome x amnesia is a nice horror story and has a pretty decent plot.

Higurashi, I'm not too much of a fan, but the anime does have some pretty good horror elements to it.

Another. Never watched it, but I have seen some bits of it. Pretty horrifying in some aspects.

That was the one i was going to post too. I also enjoyed Higurashi, Corpse party, and Deadman Wonderland (Sometimes classified as horror but not really that creepy.)

Attack on Titan... ofc one can argue whether it is horror or not, i believe that it is, and the manga is classified as such anyway.

only other horror i watched was Ghost Hunt. It had its moments, particularly at the end.


I honestly cringed more at scenes in Attack on Titan than I did with Higurashi. Higurashi didn't really effect me, don't know why. It was really fun figuring out the Higurashi secret though. My favorite officially labeled horror anime is Another. Only one I've really seen, though. I plan to watch the Corpse Party OVAs one of these days if i can find the time.

Another actually gave me chills. I finally got around to watching it last October to prep for the Halloween spirit. I thought I was immune to anything horror-ish, but my God.

Paranoia Agent was pretty cool, too.

Shiki is a largely overlooked horror anime. Very good characters and it makes you question who the bad guys really are at the end. It's like you spend half of the anime on one side, then at the end you get hit with the feel train.

What other people said, Another and Higurashi are both great, although watching Higurashi Kai along with the first season helps it make more sense.

Monster is another great horror anime. One of the best shows out there, has real deep psychological elements in it. Well worth a watch even though it's a long series.

School Days. The fact that it exists makes it a horror.

I wouldn't classify Monster as a horror. It is a psychological thriller more than anything else.
