Synopsis:

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.

Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek

Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek
  • Movie (1 ep x 26 min)
  • 2004

Near the ruins of an old and abandoned city, there is played a game simply known as "Otokoyo." It is said that when children play this game, they go missing one by one. Some say it is ghosts. Others say it is demons. But for Hikora, one thing is certain: his sister disappeared playing the game and he will do whatever it takes to find her, even if it means playing the game himself. He and seven others will do just that, all for their own reasons, and learn that rumors aren’t always fictitious. Escaping with their lives will become the main concern when this game of hide-and-seek turns deadly.

If you like seeing people put into a situation (in both cases, a game) where you know the outcome is likely bad to worse, give both of these anime a watch.

Kemonozume

Kemonozume

In present-day Japan, Toshihiko Momota is member of a secret warrior faction called the Kifuuken. The Kifuuken is dedicated to destroying Shokujinji - humans that turn into man-eating monsters when hunger takes them. However, to fate's chagrin, Momota meets and quickly falls for Yuka, a Shokujinji herself! Will their love be able to overcome Yuka's insatiable appetite for human flesh, or will the couple be destroyed by the bestial tendencies of humanity?

If you are brave enough to endure 26 episodes of Gantz, then you might be man enough to endure 13 episodes of Kemonozume. Don't be fooled by its length. Like Gantz, the story of Kemonozume is twisted and sick and might give you nightmares with all of the explicit content contained within the story. If you like Gantz and want a heavier dose of the same medicine, then brace yourself for Kemonozume.

Like extremly graphic violence? Like exremly graphic sex scenes? Well, if you do, you would like either of these, because they got loads of the stuff.

Also, the guns in both are similar. They like have a delayed effect.

Mirai Nikki TV

Mirai Nikki TV

Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

Both of them are kind of Survival, Gore (more explicit on Gantz) and the psichological stuff. Each chapter of Gantz its unforgetable, and you must see it so you can understand the story and connect it. THe same way with Mirai Nikki,each chapter is somehow related with each other and in much of them exist a suspense and you want to find out who is behind the big thing!Really, I recommend you both of them, if you are a fan of gore animes ^^

I admit this is a bit of a stretch... but if you have an evil sense of humor, it ma lead you to appreciate it. If you like your anime to come to a complete, fully explained ending... even if you may not get it, or quite belive it at first, you'll enjoy this, even though you may consider it a weak ending. if you want all that, and like me, have a dark sense of humor, the ending is bloody hilarious! it's also very violent, and VERY noy for children *as in ADULT CONTENT* !
