Hey guys! So this has been a fun season, but now that most of my shows are wrapping up I'm starting to feel bored. I'm looking for horror, supernatural, suspense, or something with enough action to keep me on the edge of my seat.

Here's a list of some titles I've watched similar/in these categories & enjoyed:
- Another
- Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
- Erased
- Claymore
- Corpse Party
- Ghost Hunt
- Girls und Panzer (I dare you to tell me TANK BATTLES don't count as action packed)
- Highschool of the Dead
- Psycho Pass
- Sakurako / Beautiful Bones
- Tokyo Ghoul
- Shiki
- Shinreigari
- From the New World
- Zetsuen no Tempest
- SAO - Does this shit even count as action? IDK w/e.


Any suggestions welcome. If you happen to know of a legal streaming service non-CR titles are on that'd be absolutely fantastic too. c:

"Berserk" is the main thing I can see missing from your list which is like the male version of Claymore.

Shows like "Higurashi, when they cry" and "School Live" are also horror themed.

Good recommendations so far. Here are a few more.

Horror / Dark Fantasy
SCHOOL-LIVE! - This show does not look like horror at first glance, but it most definitely is (the creepy disturbing kind). Watch ALL of the first episode.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Looks like a sweet innocent magical girl show. In reality, this is a dark fantasy / horror show.

YUKI YUNA IS A HERO - At first glance it looks like a cute girls doing cute things slice of life show. This is really a dark action show.

Parasyte is pretty good, I think!

I haven't finished the anime and I've never read the manga myself, but my brother says the manga is way better if you would be interested in reading a manga! (though some of it is probably different, since the anime is pretty recent and the manga is from the late 80s-mid 90s)

I highly recommend Hellsing: Ultimate (I also like Hellsing but Ultimate is closer to the manga). It's not deep it's just (bloody) horror but if you like that you should watch it.
