26 years ago, something terrible happened in a middle school’s third year classroom. A popular, talented student named Misaki suddenly died, and the ramifications of that incident have caused each third year class since then to live in fear. It is now 1998, and Kouchi Sakakibara has just transferred into the notorious classroom, curious about the mysterious secret that his peers are hiding from him. He’s drawn to one enigmatic girl named Mei Misaki, a quiet student who wears an eye patch and warns him about getting involved with her, and continues to seek her out against the pleas of his classmates. And that’s when people begin to violently die...
Another and Blood-C are two horror titles in which a small community (class in Another) seemingly start to die by a supernatural cause, until everything goes completely wrong and out of control. They can both get pretty bloody, and if you want to watch them, I suggest you wait for the DVD release or else you'll be seeing a lot of censoring!
Do you like anime about bad things happening to school kids? Then look no further! These two shows have plenty of mystery and horror surrounded by many deaths! Blood-C adds in some monsters where Another is about freak accidents but both shows are a perfect match if you are looking for awesome gore.
Both of these anime are dumb as bricks, but let's face it- you're watching for the gore, not the story. And these two certainly deliver with the gore. There's no shortage of blood, limbs, and people dying in horrifying ways. Additionally, both were directed by the same person, so they have a similar pacing and progression.
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Blood, twisted story, great emotion, and a hint of PTSD going on here. Very similar in the approach of how the truth of the past comes haunting back. Great suspense.
Both of these anime have one thing in common: There's a lot of dismemberment and blood splattering around. Both of these anime try to back this up with a story, but in my opinion, don't really try their hardest to do so. So if you're in for a load of gore, check these out. Otherwise, leave them be.

Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.
High schoolers with no clue of what's going on? Check. Said highschoolers getting dismembered every other episode? Check. Absolutely no story points whatsoever? Check. Both of these series are focused on one thing and one thing alone: Bringing enough gore to your screen. Both do so in an excellent way, so if you don't mind overly bloody anime, go for it.

Gantz does the whole explicit gore + lots of action + fighting baddies thing WAY WAY better than Blood-C. If you're looking for a similar and better fix, check it out.
Time has passed since Akira Fudo was possessed by the powerful demon Amon, giving him the ability to change into Devilman. Humans have become increasingly paranoid of demon attacks, resorting to murder of innocent civilians with mob mentality – among nicer things. Akira continues to fight against the demon armies with his companions – but when his girlfriend Miki is brutally murdered, his will breaks and the sadistic Amon is unleashed, controlling his body. The final battle awaits in Akira’s mind – can he defeat Amon and control his body once more?
If extreme gore - and I do mean extreme - is your thing, these are two titles for you. I'm talkin people getting eaten alive, bones crunching, that sort of thing. Very few anime tread into this territory, Blood-C and Amon do.
