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.
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.
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.
