In Japan, there is a disturbing rumor being spread that people's shadows are ripping from their bodies, never to be seen again. For one young man, the frightening nature of this rumor is just beginning to manifest in the form of a nightmarish world that he can't seem to escape from. In this place full of dark minions and demons, he and his friends fight futilely against unknown enemies, only to be brought back to the "real world" as quickly as they left it. Is this real, or a dream? Only one person holds the key to destroying and saving the world as he knows it...

If you enjoy a slightly more twisted view in anime, then these two shows are a must-see. The audio, strange camera angles and conplex storyline all add up to two very enjoyable shows that will make your brain work overtime.

These shows will not appeal to the Naruto generation, but to people who instead appreciate story telling with a sprinkling of fantasy.

  • Movie (1 ep x 50 min)
  • 2007

When an odd string of suicides begins to occur at a local high rise building, most of the townsfolk treat it as an unfortunate series of events. One girl, however, senses something more sinister at work - especially when a close friend of hers falls mysteriously ill. After witnessing one of the deaths for herself, Shiki begins to realize that a strange connection exists between each of the girls, and predicts a total of eight will die. With seven dead and the accuracy of her prediction unclear, she sets out to put an end to the killings. Yet, as she nears the truth, she finds herself closer and closer to the brink of death; will Shiki become the town's savior, or the next victim?

Kara no Kyoukai and Boogiepop Phantom are two anime that center on one character who takes it upon themselves to pass judgement on what they consider evil. Both have a suspenseful and gothic atmosphere with some beautiful action scenes. If you liked one, you should check out the other.

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette

Kurahashi has never been the same since the hallucinations started. His condition is not medical in nature, and only seems to be triggered by an antique glass which shows him things he never would wish to see. For Kurahashi, figuring out the mystery of the Petit Cossette that appears to him in his waking dreams is a matter of life or death... and his sanity...

I don't see how anyone would think that Boogiepop or Petit Cossette wasn't fantastic if you already liked the other. Dark, beautiful animation and DEFINITE confusion at every turn.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

AverageShinigami

If you liked the latter parts of EVA, you'll enjoy Boogiepop, and vice versa. Both series focus intensely on the psychological problems of their characters. These characters, likewise, are quite similar in the two shows: generally lost and hopeless and often half insane, but they are made understandable and even sympathetic through either their pasts or their struggles.

Those who enjoyed Boogiepop mainly for its mode of storytelling may find some earlier parts of EVA quite dull...

Night Head Genesis

Night Head Genesis

It is said that humans fear what is different, and that such fears drive much of human behavior. Naoto and Nayao learned the brutal truth of this statement when they see the looks on their parents’ faces, the day they were sent to an isolated laboratory to live out their youth. Their crime? Possessing inherent psychic abilities. Yet now, the brothers have escaped and are at last free to experience the world, but they soon discover that their prison was also their protection from the outside world. The question is, are their powers more dangerous to themselves, or those around them?

Nocturnalgloria

Night Head Genesis and Boogiepop Phantom are both supernatural thrillers that explore the potentially disastrous consequences of spiritual powers unleashed. These series are extremely dark and delve into the darkest aspects of the human psyche. With this said, Boogiepop Phantom is considerably more complex, with a narrative that breaks all conventions, being highly non-linear while Night Head Genesis is easier to follow and much more conventional in terms of story telling.
