Elfen Lied - The most famous Gore anime
Elfen Lied's story revolves around prejudice, social alienation, abuse, jealousy, revenge and other ugly things that would drive one to do unimaginable things. This anime breaks all the limits that someone can have of being violent.
In addition to the excellent plot, viewers should also expect plenty of scenes of pens piercing skulls in one of the most violent and bloody anime of all time. Teenagers often show this anime to those who say anime is for children.
Don't let the cute faces in the image below fool you. The characters in this anime not only kill people, but also children and animals. The secret is in the invisible and powerful arms.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni kai
In my opinion one of the second most Gore and violent anime after Elfen Lied, so it follows in second place on the list. The story takes place in 1983 in a rural village called Hinamizawa (based in Shirakawa, Gifu).
The main character of the series, Maebara Keiichi, moves to a village and becomes friends with his classmates: Ryuugu Rena, Sonozaki Mion, Furude Rika, Houjou Satoko and later Sonozaki Shion.
The anime is based on a game, which consists of an investigation of murders that take place at a local festival. Usually one of the friends becomes paranoid and starts murdering others and their own friends.
Hellsing – Vampire and Monster Hunters
In Hellsing, a British task force plays the important role of annihilating threats in the form of vampires, ghosts and other supernatural beings, in the midst of a veritable bloodbath across the city.
It doesn't take a genius to know that these evil beings always choose to give their victims macabre deaths. On the other hand, a vampire himself named Allucard annihilates its own kind in a sinister way.
The anime has a 13-episode season released in 2001, a 10-episode OVA released in 2006 and 2012, in addition to the manga that is on hiatus.
Another – Umbrella's Death
26 years ago, in a third-year high school classroom, there was a student named Misaki. She died suddenly, her classmates decided to carry on as if she was still alive until graduation.
Then, in the spring of 1998, a boy named Sakakibara Kouichi transfers into the class and becomes suspicious of the atmosphere of fear in that classroom. In particular, there is a beautiful and distant girl named Mei Misaki who wears an eye patch and is always alone making drawings.
During the anime thousands of sinister things happen, macabre deaths with umbrellas stuck in necks, people being crushed, decapitated and other terribly frightening things.
The anime features women trained in swordsmanship and with special powers. These powers increase their physical capabilities to bestial levels, where they literally turn into beasts if left unchecked.
If one of these swordsmen get out of control and become such a monster, they are killed by the women themselves with this power. It's almost ironic, because they live to kill monsters that are partly their destiny if they don't control the power.
Anyway, the difference is that there is no freshness of being women anime is not violent. On the contrary, this anime is much more violent than most anime of all genres.
Tokyo Ghoul – Cannibalism Anime
Another very popular anime that has a bit of Gore and a rather sinister story. A young boy ends up becoming one of the fearsome Ghouls, people with powers who can only eat meat.
As a half human and half ghoul, he is torn between the 2 worlds, being hunted by humans and sometimes by the ghouls themselves. An epic anime, with an epic soundtrack and lots of action.
Unfortunately the anime did well in the first season but lost in the next ones. There were a lot of studio changes, script, direct, art and other things that unfortunately spoiled the anime a lot, but it's worth it.
Kiseijuu – Parasyte
One of my favorite anime, where parasites fall to earth in order to take over human brains and infiltrate them. Unfortunately these parasites need to feed on human flesh.
A young teenager in love ends up being infected by a parasite, but the parasite can't take over his brain, staying only in his right hand. Fortunately, the parasite has no desire to eat human flesh as it does not dominate the brain.
The parasite and protagonist agree to coexist, until they have to face other parasites that put both their lives in danger. The abilities present in the parasites are superhuman. In my opinion, it's the best anime on this list.
the protagonist Igarashi Ganta he had a normal life until one day his classmates are murdered and he becomes the main suspect in the crime he didn't commit.
A lost and confused young man ends up being sent to a prison where he finds he has to fight other prisoners using an ability that allows him to control blood.
In prison Ganta discovers that the real killer is called Red Man. Using his abilities and powers to control his own blood, Ganta tries to hunt down this killer for revenge at all costs.
HIGH SCHOOL of the dead
It happened suddenly: the dead began to rise and Japan was thrown into total chaos. When these monsters start terrorizing a school, Takashi Kimuro is forced to kill his best friend when he is bitten.
Vowing to protect Rei Miyamoto, the girlfriend of the man he has just executed, they narrowly escape his school's death trap, only to be greeted with a society that has already fallen.
A classic zombie anime full of action all the time and still a little ecchi. The anime is quite honest, although it fades a little from reality when shooting between a girl's breasts to hit a zombie.
A man has a curse that causes demons to chase him every night, and in order not to be devoured by them, this man is forced to kill or die every night and every night since he was cursed.
This man is a swordsman who was raised from childhood in a group of mercenaries, since childhood he has the habit of carrying huge bastard swords. An anime for those who want a lot of action and blood.
Attack on Titan
The anime takes place in a world where people live inside a wall to protect themselves from giants that eat people. In this world there are 3 military groups responsible for human survival.
For more than 100 years living in peace, one day the protagonists' village that is on the last wall is devastated by a huge giant that causes a hole in the wall. The 3 children flee for their survival and decide to join the army.
What will be the mystery behind this bloody story? How will they be able to defeat these giant titans? This is one of the most popular anime of all time.
