Best Halloween Anime?

Hey;

So I'm planning to do a segment on my podcast about the best horror and monster animes. The list I've got so far are:

* Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni/When They Cry
* Mushishi
* Karin
* Zombie Loan
* Bakemonogatari

What else would you add to the list? What am I missing? Give me your ideas!

Thanks!

I have to agree with Gantz and Tokko, but you could also throw Elfien Lied into the list, maybe even Perfect Blue, Tokyo Majin.

Well if you're talking "monster" and "horror", then Karin and Mushishi are probably the mildest of that list. I've only seen the first 4 eps. of Mushishi and I didn't find anything particularly "horror" about it. However, it is pretty big on paranormal so I guess that makes up for it. As for Karin, I've seen all of that and it's is more of a vampire comedy love story than "oooh scary" stuff. Again, the vampire element can count in this case.

So instead of being a critic, I can mention a few anime that have horror/monster elements:

  • Monster
  • Paranoia Agent
  • Gantz
  • Tokko
  • La Blue Girl (juuuuuust kidding XD)
  • That's all I can think of off the top of my head. If anything else comes to me, I'll come running. =]

    Soul Eater is Halloween themed (witches, etc.) but most of it is not really horror.

    I am surprised no one mentioned Boogiepop Phantom.

    Ghost Talker's Teizokure Daydream is a good horror one. Sexy and a lot of ghosts and vengeful spirits.

    Oh and this version of Totoro...

    I'd definitely have to say Umineko no Naku Koro Ni. Yeah, Higurashi is definitely a good Halloween anime, I get a good feeling for this particular holiday from Umineko as well.

    I think its because of Maria's candy and the intro. And Moetrice. :3
