Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village. At the outset everything seems peaceful and Keiichi becomes friends with a nice group of schoolgirls with whom he spends many idle summer afternoons. Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death. The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?
If u like one you will like the other :) very similar art aswell as story, when i watched this i immeadiately thought of the other one.
If you add some ghost to Higurashi you'll get Corpse Party: Tortured Souls. If you like gore and psychological plots you will like both series.
Both anime feature a cast of cute girls thrown into the meat grinder of a gory horror anime. The characters must struggle to solve a mystery before they are killed in horrific ways.
Higurashi is a lot longer with better plot and characterization but both anime will satisfy horror fans looking for blood and gore.
cute little kids doing really bad things haha. similar art style and feel as well as way the story progresses.
Do you like curses? Both of these stories are about a group of friends battling a curse. Death and gore ensue, but each group struggles to maintain their friendship.
The moment I saw Corpse Party it reminded me of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. They're both about children killing or getting killed in spectacular ways. Both violent, gory and look visually similar.
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...
Want to see students getting killed off in horriffic ways? Want a creepy sense of foreboding around every corner? That's what I thought.
Gore, horror, gruesome deaths each surrounding high school kids. If you liked Corpse Party: Tortured Souls or Another, you'd like the other.
Both anime are about students surrounded by death, desperately trying to solve a mystery before they are the next to die. Both series have creatively gory kills with plenty of blood and mutilation.
Another has a better plot and more consistent atmosphere, but if you're looking for a dark anime with plenty of gore and violent death then you should check out both of these anime.
"Corpse Party" and "Another" are mystery-horror anime with dark atmospheres. Both revolve around a creepy little school that is obviously completely haunted and the kids who run around trying to figure out why everyone is dying at a rapid rate.
"Corpse Party" is one of those anime that tries to cram so much gore and death into such a short run time that the whole thing might as well just have gunned everyone down in the first five minutes. But they didn't, and that's what gives this show its mystery appeal. "Another," on the other hand, is all about mystery, and any fan of mystery anime who watched "CP" should watch "Another." And anyone who wants ridiculous (in a very awesome way, especially in the case of "Another") death scenes littered with blood and gore should watch both of these.
"Another" is superior to "CP," but it's in no way a masterpiece. But both are short, entertaining gorefests.
These are both horror anime where cute students are killed off one by one. They both have a mystery at their heart that must be solved in order for the killing to stop. Both anime have a dark atmosphere that make them a good match for each other.
Each of these anime has a pretty dark atmosphere, and involved a bunch of cutesy characters getting murdered one by one. The plot in each also contains heavy mystery elements.
When Utsutsu and Yume were young, they were physically and emotionally abused by their sadistic father; and now that they’re older, Utsutsu swears above all else that he’ll protect his little sister at any cost. So when the girl is infected with the mysterious Pupa virus, causing her to turn into a terrifying monster that eats anything around her, the boy does the only thing he can: he offers his sister his body and flesh to consume. He won’t die, for Utsutsu was also infected with the virus, giving his body the superhuman ability to regenerate from any wound, and making himself the the perfect food source for his beloved sibling. Though nefarious researchers and doctors are studying their every move, Utsutsu will do whatever he can to keep the pupa inside of his sister from emerging and killing them all.
These are both shows that think excessive gore is equals horror. Both these show are condensed versions of their source material that rush and compress the material into something that is really unsatisfying to watch.
The plots are quite different with Corpse Party being about a group of students trying to unravel a curse and Pupa is about a girl that turns into a monster that eats her brother so she doesn't murder other people. Corpse Party has a little bit of a plot even in it is compressed. Pupa skips around to the point of incoherency.
Pretty much if you're just looking for violent anime with some really inappropriate fanservice then try either of these titles, although be warned the gore in Pupa is heavily censored.
Here we have two examples of shows that like to think that over the top gore is somehow the same thing as good horror, rather than trying to actually make the series scary through its writing or atmosphere.
They are both also pretty heavily butchered adaptations that rush through the source material with a staggering lack of respect. And while the premise in each aren't very similar at all, the only reason people will watch either of these is for the gore. So if that's your thing, you may find something to enjoy in both of these short series.
Hope’s Peak Private Academy is a super-exclusive institute that gathers the best and the brightest, provides them with a world-class education, and propels them into any career they wish. At least, that’s what the average student Naegi used to think. Having been accepted into a class of 15 students through a lottery system, the boy quickly comes to learn that Hope’s Peak is no ordinary school. In reality, he and the group find themselves trapped inside and learn that the only way to "graduate" is to murder a fellow student and fool everyone in a trial that determines life or death! Led by the whimsically-cruel, teddy-bear-like Monobear, Naegi and the others must do whatever it takes to escape this bizarre, deadly game.
