Top Ten Most Disturbing Animes
Japan, how can you make such disgusting things? Eating poisonous fish - blowfish called fugu. Weird vending machines. Gory game shows. (No offense to any fans.) Electric Soldier Porygon. Boku no Pico.
It's a disgrace, even to other hentai animes! Who thought it was a good idea to make this? I have nothing against homosexuals, but this? Pedophilia! I wish this would be banned!
I wish I had never seen this anime. It was the most disturbing thing I have ever seen. If you haven't seen it, don't.
My all-time favorite anime, Higurashi, tells a compelling story through the development of characters and the excessive use of gore. While the plot is confusing in the first season, the second later goes on to explain just why time is looping. The answer is more disturbing than you could imagine.
Every act of violence isn't without a purpose, which is the most horrifying part of the anime. The story is told through arcs which loop back through time, revealing key pieces of information in exciting, fresh ways each time. If you like mystery and gore, this anime is definitely for you.
It's really confusing, and I'll be really grateful if someone can explain to me who the killer in this series is. Everyone seems messed up by some drug.
Anyway, some scenes are awesome!
This show is indeed confusing and disturbing. But the second season actually has a very happy ending.
It's an amazing anime, but yes, I have to agree. It's pretty disturbing, especially the death scenes. And some of the characters are also pretty crazy, just the way they act.
Don't get me started on Number 35.
This is one of my favorite animes, but has some sick incest that bothers me! Oh, and let's not forget, Myu's sick stepfather who basically molests her. If all of that we're taken out it would be 10/10 anime. But I have to give it 9/10.
Elfen Lied is a great anime, but it's said to be the most disturbing of all. Many people were scarred for life from the infamous Dog Scene.
Whether you're a manga reader or anime watcher of this amazing work of art, we all know about the infamous ending to the Golden Age arc. When Guts was screaming and fighting off the horde of apostles as he was fighting for his life, it was so incredible. The context of his situation was so, so disturbing.
This work contains some of the most gruesome and visually disgusting scenes, period. It is also disturbing in its themes, leaving the reader/watcher contemplating and absorbing what just happened.
The ending is one of the most disturbing moments I've experienced in my life. If you watch this series, just be prepared to leave something behind.
This anime is very disturbing. I've watched it only because my friend recommended it to me, but after episode 6 or so, I was done. It freaked and grossed me out so much. I mean, the two girls are practically just trying to get the brother to make out with them the whole time.
There was this one episode too where the boy was trapped in a storage closet with some random girl from school. She needed to use the restroom and pissed all over the boy. Gross! After that, I just couldn't watch it anymore.
This was disturbing as hell. It's disgusting. To top it off, they got open support from the parents. They aren't blood-related, but growing up with someone all your life should make them feel like siblings, not your objects of fantasy.
Moreover, all the episodes have a lot of mature content. That's alright since it is 18+, but this felt more like a bizarre Hentai ride rather than containing any proper plot. All the girls exhibit bizarre sexual symbolism and have little personality.
Had a great ending but in between it's quite the stomach turner. I loved it! The last episode is full of blood though.
One of my favorites. If you're looking for suspense and love horror, I would recommend this anime! It will keep you at the edge of your seat.
This anime is actually really good and captivating, but I guess it has its disturbing moments.
The twelve television episodes of the anime aired in Japan between July 3, 2007 and September 27, 2007 on TV Kanagawa. On July 4, 2007 Chiba TV and TV Aichi also began to air the show with TV Saitama, TV Osaka and AT-X respectively picking it up a... read more
Very disturbing. The ending is so gory, not to mention that it started out as a romantic, dramatic anime.
Someone told me that it was your typical romance high school anime, so I watched it. It didn't end so well. Let's just say this anime is a bit disturbing.
Jokes aside, I really enjoyed this anime, although that plot twist at the end was too unexpected.
This anime is good. It is able to make the person watching it feel really, really bad.
This anime totally scared me to death. I rarely get scared, but this anime is simply taken to a whole new level of gore and disturbance. If you are going to watch this anime, be prepared to not sleep for 3 nights (probably more).
I highly do not recommend this anime if you are paranoid or you get easily scared.
This was the one anime (or cartoon) that I have ever found to be truly disturbing. Although it is great and I highly recommend it, think twice about watching it. No matter your age, you will be thoroughly disturbed by it.
This will definitely freak people out if you watch it during school! I freaked the person behind me out in algebra when I watched it after finishing my work.
Easily one of the most messed up pieces of animation to ever exist, and that's why we love it. The only animated film that matches it is Where the Dead Go to Die, but that's American so I can't vote for that.
Don't watch this. I couldn't sleep after watching it for days.
Obviously, the worst anime of all time would make it on this list.
How did nobody else write something on this one? Shame, shame! Seriously speaking, now: Now and Then, Here and There is a criminally overlooked gem. As most who have seen it will tell you, its themes are really heavy. (The reason I even gave it a look was because I heard it was basically "Berserk-dark Isekai", though I personally feel that that's debatable).
The plot and setting are quite unique. It's worth a watch, despite the dub being "meh" at times. It's a harrowing but thoughtful experience, and I'm honestly disappointed it doesn't get mentioned more often.
This anime is my religion, and it has been since I was 12. It is so bloody that it's actually hilarious. Although it's not really scary, it is disturbing, and I definitely wouldn't recommend watching this if you have a weak stomach.
This is the most violent one. The only one, as far as I know, where we have impalement through the mouth and anus.
Nene's death is #1 on almost every "Brutal Anime Deaths" list. And it's true! That scene is impossible to watch without cringing.
What. I literally didn't know if I should cry or laugh. And omg, the torture scenes. I feel so bad, yet enjoyed it in a sick kinda way.
After watching the piercing scene, I could not stop crossing my legs.
This anime is emotional but as gory and bloody as hell! (I've only read the manga adaptation and 1.0, 2.0)
As much as I love this movie, it definitely is very disturbing. It's one of the best in the psychological thriller genre and is a must-watch for fans of darker anime!
I've seen the movie. It was great but very disturbing.
I love Hellsing! It's definitely not for children as it is very violent and has many disturbing scenes.
Theology, philosophy, reality, religion, presence, worth, drugs, the end of the world, suicide, drugs, life, death, society - this show is demented.
Just see for yourself.
This is disgusting.
Don't watch it.
One of my favorite animes, but sometimes it's just flat-out disturbing.
It was surprisingly disturbing, but still a masterpiece of anime.
Too gory for my tastes.
It's very gory. The gore scenes are censored because they were too graphic. It shows graphic, mutilated corpses.
I love this anime, and I kind of like the gory scenes.
This show... I like it, but it is messed up! A teddy bear (not really a teddy bear, but you get the point) forcing a bunch of high schoolers to murder each other, and then executing the murderer if they're caught? And if they're not caught, executing all the innocents? Somebody tell me how that's not disturbing!
Yet I can't stop watching it, and I think many people get that feeling.
I think it's great! The future arc anime is just a bit too gory and has the same system like the first anime, but still good!
It made me start self-harming again, so that's pretty despair-inducing.
