I had a dream that my great grandmother watched this show... yikes
Japan how can you make disgusting things.
Eating poisonous fish - blowfish called fugu.
Weird vending machines.
Gory game shows. (No offense to any fans)
Electric Solider Porygon.
Boku no Pico.
I'm going to have nightmares I shouldn't of clicked this please help.
Every second of watchtime you feel your soul leaving your body and becoming closer to hell. Gay hell to be more specific.
My all time favourite anime, Higurashi tells a compelling story through the development of characters and the excessive use of gore. While the plot is confusing the first season, the second later goes on to explain just why time is looping and 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 damn confusing and I'll be really grateful if some explain me, who in this series is the killer because everybody is messed up by some drug. Anyway, some scenes are awesome!
This show is indeed confusing and disturbing but the second season is actually a very happy ending.
Very good, yet very disturbing.
I didn't particularly find this anime disturbing. I've heard so many people call it "too much," but when I watched it, all I could think was "no, not really."
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.
Dog scene?! Train massacre was WAY more disturbing, in my opinion. - Tia-Harribel
It's a very good anime, one of my favorites actually, but the content can be very disturbing
How many horrible things can one anime show do to children? Many, many horrible things.
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 and 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 it's themes, leaving the reader/watcher contemplating and absorbing what just happened.
The ending is one of the most disturbing moments I had in my life. if you watch this series just be prepared to leave something behind.
That ending left me scared
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 and she needed to use the restroom and pissed all over the boy. GROSS! After that, I just couldn't watch it anymore. - AeropostaleWolf
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 like more of a bizarre Hentai ride rather than contain any proper plot. All the girls exhibit bizarre sexual symbolism and have little personality.
This is horrendous...it's the worst possible way to trivialise sibling relations, objectify women and put men in a bad light, and it shocks me how they think slapping boobs and panty shots everywhere can cover up its lack of a decent plot. Yes, it's not that far off from being as nauseating as Boku no Pico. - Entranced98
Um half-brother doesn't really matter as long as they're not blood related except for ova 6 that episode was fleeced up
One of my favorite. If you're looking for suspicion and love horror I would recommend this anime! It will keep you at the edge of your chair
This Anime is actually really good and captivating, but I guess it has its disturbing moments.
Just came after watching the end of episode 3...made me sick
It's one of the few horrors I like but really disturbing
This anime is good, it is able to make the person watching it feel really, REALLY bad.
I don't- I can't... There are no words to explain how weird this anime is... Much less how disturbing it is
Very Disturbing. The ending is so gory not to mention that it started out a romantic dramatic anime.
Someone told me that it was your typical romance highscool anime, so I watched 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 is too unespected
Best anime ever
Greatest anime of all time!
My favorite anime ever!
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 because no matter your age, you will be thoroughly disturbed by it.
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 gonna 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 is horrifying. Even to people that can take gore, this is a little much.
Will defiantly freak people out if you watch during school! I freaked the person behind me out in algebra when I watched after finishing my work.
How did nobody else write something on this one? Shame, shame!
Seriously speaking, now: NaTHaT is a criminally overlooked gem. As most who have seen it will tell you, it's 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), and 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.
After watching the piercing scene, I could not stop crossing my legs. - AO1-H1KAR1
My favorite show ever
I love this anime
Deeply disturbing without being an edgefest.
Like, really, all the serie is disturbing
This anime is emotional but as gory and bloody as hell! (i've only read tge manga adaption and 1.0,2.0
I seen the movie. It was great but very disturbing
Creeped me out.
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 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.
Nice try making cannibalism sexy, but NOPE
This is one hell of a messed up anime yall
Probably one of my favorite animes ever
Storywise, character development, and the overall feeling you get when you watch the scenes
One of my favorite anime's but sometimes it's just flat out disturbing. - alyssa800900
It was surprisingly disturbing but still a masterpiece of anime.
The only thing disturbing about Attack on Titan is that the live action movies sucked. Never make live-action adaptations of anime ever.
Nene's death is #1 on almost every "Brutal Anime Deaths" list. And it's true! That scene is impossible to watch without cringing
Where can I find this?
Just see for yourself
This is disgusting. - MilkTae
Don't watch it
It's very gory so the gore scenes are censored because it was too graphic. It shows graphic mutilated corpses.
I love porn
I love this anime and I kind of like the gory scenes in the anime.
This is like porn, but with more tentacles
Obviously the worst anime of all time would make it on this list. - Vancedapurpleguy
Don't just don't watch this, couldn't sleep after watching this for days.
For oblivious reasons - PerfectImpulseX
JAPAN BY ITSELF DID NOT WANT ANYTHING REMAINING OF THIS TERROR!
They were okay with some really sick hentai, like Boku No Pico, but THEY ACTUALLY BANNED THIS FOR BEING TO REVULTING!
THAT'S HOW DISTURBING IT REALLY IS!
Favorite anime of all time. It has some messed up scenes but its just really well put together. Love it, definitely not for the faint of heart though.
I love this anime and there are parts that are obviously disturbing. It's body horror. What's disturbing about Parasyte is that these parasitic aliens go into people's brains and take control of them. They can morph their bodies into anything like blades and they kill people.
Now, so far I have only watched the English subtitles of the first episode, and it is a very well done show, but from what I've seen it is pretty disturbing, such as the dog. Very beautiful show, very disturbing visuals.
I have read the manga before, and then I watched the anime. Its disturbing, but good. There is numerous scenes of gore, and just the fact that parasites go inside u and make your body Chang weird shapes. Very disgusting. Not for children at all! Its rated T.V. MA. Or 17+.
I like it,but a little disturbing. I watched it on toonami(adult swim on Saturday nightswans its definitely disgusting. I recommend it to u if u like horror or gore
It made me start self harming again so that's pretty despair inducing
Rip grape panta child and cool whip hair hope dude *cough cough Kokichi and Nagito
This anime is so messed up I feel like I'm going to die/ 10/10 would recommend
This anime made me dead inside. most messed up anime I've ever watched. my brain can't take anymore death. words can't really describe how depressing and disturbing this anime is. everybody can die in this anime. and Despair everywhere
You should watched this but this should be just a little bit higher then Serial Experiments Lain
I loved it but very strange
You might think that it's a happy magical girl anime just like Sailor Moon, Tokyo Mew Mew, Pichi Pichi Pitch, Magical Doremi, Pretty Cure, and other magical girl anime but Madoka Magica is insidious. It's a dark fantasy that's why it's popular. It changed magical girl history. It about five magical girls who have to fight witches. They're not the stereotypical witches with the pointy hat and nose. They're more like entities than witches. The most disturbing scene is when one of the main girls, Homura Akemi has to fight the strongest witch, Walpurgis Nacht (a German holiday). Walpurgis Nacht has a very disturbing and über creepy laugh.
I loved the Walpurgis Nacht laugh (please don't kill me I find it amusing rather than disturbing)-Vestalis
Tetsuo's transformation scenes was just screwed up but the movie definitely deserves to be best anime
More disturbing on a psychological level then just gore. You start feeling for the shiki and realise we are also monsters
Amazing anime (with not-so-amazing art) and some disturbing moments, especially in the last few episodes.
The first half is very disturbing, later on it just gets so weird it looses some impact.
The ending is still worth it, so don't drop it, even if it seems to morph into a completely different show!
I'm about to watch episode 27 and I personally think it's wonderful except for the disturbing part when the man encased in skin is released and he just slowly creepily crawls back into his skin
Why does every character have to do a pose every time before they attack?! And what with the animations?! At first when my sister showed me soul Eater I though it was just a cartoon.
Most depressing show of all time
This anime is disturbing, not because of their being much violence or anything like that. Most anime on here aren't that disturbing, but when I watched this I was terrified because of its use of how the surreal horror is used. Also the episode that came out after one of creators died (I think it was suidice) was something your going to have to watch to understand the terror in this. - Kuro
One of the unsettling shows ever! It's pretty disturbing on a psychological level, like you can't shake off the feeling that the antagonist knows everything that's happening on the show, even when he's not present and he's watching it all unfolding...
There's a chick that walks like a spider
I've heard that berskerk is very brutal
I love this anime. It's the violence and gore that makes it disturbing but I love it because of that. One of the main characters, Shinya Kogami shot a criminal with a special gun and he literally bloated and exploded into a pool of blood.
The most disturbing scenes in FMA are when Nina turned into a chimera, Shou turned himself into a chimera (2003 version), Envy's true lizard form, Mustang killing Envy
Okay, I found some parts to be really disturbing.
Alexander and Nina.
I've watched a lot of disturbing scenes, but this one haunted me.
