I'm incredibly new to Anime and just looking for suggestions thus far! I've watched Blue Exorcist, Death Note and Tokyo Ghoul. I loved the horror genre and I would love to stick with it. I'm totally good with subbed or dubbed.


Please Help

If you enjoy horror, watch Another. You may also enjoy Black Butler, Parasyte, and Attack on Titan based on your preferences.

As other people have said, Parasyte is a great option if you like horror. Attack on Titan and Berserk work as well as they both also have some horror elements, even though their main focus is action. Oh and with Berserk, I suggest watching the old 1997 anime or the Golden Age movies instead of the new show that is available here.

    I believe Shiki, Parasyte, Ghost Hunt, and Perfect Blue would be a good fit for you.

    Shiki


    Fifteen-year-old Megumi Shimizu dreamed of a glamorous life in the big city; however, her unexpected death in the quiet village of Sotoba marks the beginning of what appears to be a ferocious epidemic that turns the hot summer into a season of blood and terror. A young doctor named Toshio Ozaki begins to doubt the nature of the disease and comes to understand that to discover the truth, he must abandon his humanity. Meanwhile, Natsuno Yuuki, an antisocial youth from the city, is haunted by the sudden death of Megumi and must realize the pain of friendship in the face of his own tragedy. Toshio and Natsuno form an unlikely pair as they work together to save Sotoba before it transforms into a ghost town of vampires.

    Shiki, adapted from the horror novel written by Fuyumi Ono, goes beyond the average vampire story. It tells the tragic tale of survival in a world where one cannot easily distinguish between good and evil. Abandoned by God, the Shiki, as the vampires call themselves, have only their will to live as they clash with the fear of the paranoid/unbelieving villagers. Shiki explores the boundary that separates man from monster.


    Parasyte


    All of a sudden, they arrived: parasitic aliens that descended upon Earth and quickly infiltrated humanity by burrowing into the brains of vulnerable targets. These insatiable beings acquire full control of their host and are able to morph into a variety of forms in order to feed on unsuspecting prey.

    Sixteen-year-old high school student Shinichi Izumi falls victim to one of these parasites, but it fails to take over his brain, ending up in his right hand instead. Unable to relocate, the parasite, now named Migi, has no choice but to rely on Shinichi in order to stay alive. Thus, the pair is forced into an uneasy coexistence and must defend themselves from hostile parasites that hope to eradicate this new threat to their species.


    Ghost


    While at school, Taniyama Mai and her friends like to exchange ghost stories. Apparently, there is an abandoned school building on their campus that is the center of many ghost stories. During the story, they are interrupted by a mysterious male figure. The person turns out to be Shibuya Kazuya, a 17-year-old who is president of the Shibuya Psychic Research Company. He was called by the principal to investigate the stories surrounding the abandoned school building.

    The next day, on the way to school, Mai passes the school building in question. While examining a strange camera she spotted inside, she gets surprised by Kazuya's assistant. Unknowingly interfering with the investigation, Mai breaks the camera and Kazuya's assistant gets injured.

    Kazuya forcefully hires Mai in order to pay for the camera and replace his injured assistant. From that point on, Mai begins to learn about the paranormal world and the profession of ghost hunting.


    Perfect Blue


    J-pop idol group CHAM! has spent the last two years entertaining its fans. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and CHAM! must see one of its members, Mima Kirigoe, leave the group to pursue her acting career. While Mima's choice is met with a mixed response, she hopes her fans will continue to support her.

    However, Mima's life begins to change drastically after her departure from the group. Wanting to shed her pop-idol image, she takes on a role in a crime drama series, and her career as an actress gradually becomes more demanding and taxing for both Mima and her manager, Rumi Hidaka. To add to Mima's growing unease, an obsessed fan who is incapable of accepting that Mima has quit being an innocent idol, begins stalking her; a new anonymous website begins to impersonate her life with intricate detail; and CHAM! also appears to be doing better without her. One by one, each disturbing development drives Mima to become increasingly unhinged and unable to distinguish reality from fantasy.

    I don't watch much strictly in the horror genre but maybe Erased and The Perfect Insider. Both are more thriller/suspense than straight up horror but they're pretty good.

    Also, Occultic;Nine and Chaos;Child are pretty solid too.

    Edit: Yeah, as PV said above, Perfect Blue is really good. A classic.

    Attack on Titan is a great one

    Erased is amazing but not horror, my biggest recommendation would be Re:Zero but that's just because that show touched my heart and mind fucked me in ways I never knew existed. It's basically a double-edged sword, if it's not all happy and bright and good feels, it's just a little less gruesome than shows like Berserk.

    Berserk would also be good, great classic, but I don't think it's on CR.:

    Attack on Titan is a must see
    Deadman Wonderland
    Re:Zero
    Shiki was pretty amazing suspense/horror
    Mirai Nikki(Future Diary)
    and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

    You should like Chaos;Child.
    The story is interesting, but personally it was a bit too gruesome for my tastes.

    My personal favorite horror anime is Monster, it is more along the line of psychological horror. Sadly it isn't on CR, but it's worth looking up!

    A surgeon saves a kids life over the mayors, ruining his career and then people start being murdered around him and he gets blamed. He quickly realizes that the serial killer is the kid he saved, but he needs to figure out who the kid is and why he is doing it.

    Oh this!! If you're willing to go into manga, I highly recommend all of Naoki Urasawa's works. My personal favorite is Pluto, which isn't really as scary, but is really thought provoking and tragic.

    Along the lines of more psychological horror/thriller, definitely check out Ikigami, Psycho Pass, and like, everything Junji Ito did. The Enigma of Amigara Fault is a creepy one that's still fairly tame and won't leave your head itching for hours.
    I don't really know if this qualifies as a horror, but if you give some of these a try and like it, Oyasumi Punpun is a piece of work you'll never forget.
    Oshimi Shuzo does a lot of psychological works as well. Aku no Hana turned a lot of people away because of the rotoscoping, but the manga is pretty standard in art style. Still creepy af though.
