Do you feel that crisp chill in the air? That's autumn at the doorstep and with the changing of the season, all the spooks, terrors, and gory horror come out to romp. If you're a fan of the gruesome and bloody, Goo Ranking readers weighed in on the top choices of guro anime, even for the squeamish.
The number one choice is unsurprisingly the fan-favorite Attack on Titan. If viewers can stomach giant humanoids feasting on characters as they succumb to despair, well, actually that's often the whole point. But there's also some great choreographed battle sequences utilizing the maneuver gear and a political world ridden with secrets to uncover.
In second place is Tokyo Ghoul, another cannibalistic series that hit it off in the West thanks to macabre stylings and engaging face offs against some of anime's cruelest villains.
Third place went to When They Cry - Higurashi, a psychological horror series with an unreliable protagonist. In between playful school games, Keiichi and his misfit band of friends just might be paranoid trainwrecks murdering one another (or themselves) again and again until he figures out the perfect sequence of events to find the truth behind Hinamizawa Syndrome.
The full list is:
- Attack on Titan
- Tokyo Ghoul
