With Japan's love of sweets, ghost stories, and festivals, you might imagine that Halloween is a big deal there... and you'd be wrong. While appreciation for the holiday has increased somewhat over the last 10 years, you're still unlikely to see trick-or-treaters in Tokyo. Even so, thanks to cultural exchange, some traces of the Halloween aesthetic have mixed in with Japan's traditional love of the supernatural, leading to some memorable ghost episodes and horror series. I've scoured the Crunchyroll catalog, and found that these ten series best exemplify the spirit of Halloween. Enjoy them, if you dare!
