Top Ten Most Disturbing Animes


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Tokyo Ghoul Tokyo Ghoul

It's very gory so the gore scenes are censored because it was too graphic. It shows graphic mutilated corpses.

It's my favorite anime. There are lots of gore but it's not overused... I love it - FireWasp2004

I love this anime and I kind of like the gory scenes in the anime.

22 Shiki

Amazing anime (with not-so-amazing art) and some disturbing moments, especially in the last few episodes.

23 Danganronpa

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

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.

25 Berserk: Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King
26 Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a 2011 Japanese anime television series produced by Shaft and Aniplex, directed by Akiyuki Shinbo, written by Gen Urobuchi, music by Yuki Kajiura, opening sang by ClariS, ending by Kalafina (sometimes by the seiyuus) and original characters by Ume Aoki. It also has 3 movies, more.

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 ├╝ber creepy laugh.

I loved the Walpurgis Nacht laugh (please don't kill me I find it amusing rather than disturbing)-Vestalis

27 Deadman Wonderland Deadman Wonderland
28 Soul Eater Soul Eater Soul Eater is an anime series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory, and TV Tokyo, which adapts the Soul Eater manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ohkubo.

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.

29 Wicked City

There's a chick that walks like a spider

30 Monster Monster
31 Claymore Claymore
32 Genocyber
33 Hellsing Ultimate Hellsing Ultimate
34 Akira

Tetsuo's transformation scenes was just screwed up but the movie definitely deserves to be best anime

35 Ninja Scroll
36 Berserk: Golden Age Arc II - The Battle for Doldrey
37 Berserk: Golden Age Arc III - Descent
38 Psycho-Pass Psycho-Pass Psycho-Pass is an anime television series that was produced by Production I.G, directed by Naoyoshi Shiotani & Katsuyuki Motohiro and written by Gen Urobuchi.

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.

39 Speed Grapher
40 Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime series adapted from the manga of the same name by Hiromu Arakawa. It is about two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric, trying to restore their bodies after failing at bringing their mother back to life. It aired in 2003 and was remade as Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood more.

Okay, I found some parts to be really disturbing.

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
