Up for some twisted horror? Requem from the Darkness as well as Boogiepop Phantom are just that. They're both episodic, dark themed horror anime with interesting plots, not so much of sheer violence and mindless corpse-munching, but more of mythical and thrilling lessons of psychology. Friends of the macabre will without a doubt find both series interesting, hopefully dreadful too. I know I did!
Boogiepop Phantom and Requiem from the Darkness both focus as much on the twisted darkside of human nature as they do on actual monsters. Both shows tell heavily psychlogical horror stories that slowly build up tension before the true horror is revealed.

The artistic styles in both series are very reminiscent of each other, and add a lot to the enjoyment of watching them. In addition, they deal with similar themes--people getting caught up in a supernatural world they don't really understand, and the ones who are their contacts within the world guiding them along. Additionally, the music chosen to accompany the anime is stylistically unexpected, which adds another interesing depth to the overall experience.
Both Requiem and Hakaba are episodic in nature, finding inspiration from myths and legends from both Japan and around the world. A slightly lighthearted view is taken at times, along side the creepy, giving the viewer a rollercoaster ride through a world of monsters and demons.
If you enjoy a good supernatural show, these are both highly enjoyable examples from withing the genre.
Demons are escaping from the underworld, and causing much havoc on the population. Possessing both human bodies and artifacts alike, the demons are inconspicuously forcing people to commit murders; the demons must be stopped! The task of returning – or exterminating – the offenders lies with Enma, Kapaeru, and the talking witch hat Shapoji; can Enma and the gang banish the demons before things get out of hand?
Two shows with similar motifs and storytelling. Both take advantage of unique artistry and the Japanese soul to weave a story that is breath-taking and disturbing at the same time.
Hundred Stories and Enma are horror anime with similar themes, that pull similar "twists", and have similar problems in their narratives (namely, the inability to decide whether they want to be episodic or otherwise).
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?
Just the settings in the both of them are screaming out:
a. watch while 16 and under are sleeping (For all the moms and dads out there!)
b. makes great for creeping out people at parties.
Kemonozume and Requiem from the Darkness both have very unusual animation styles where even ordinary things look skewed and nightmarish. Both also include alot of mature themes and both have a way of bluring the line between human and monster.
