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 Kouichi 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.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

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.

NicoNicoDesu NicoNicoDesu says...

"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.

WaywardHunter WaywardHunter says...

They are both scary in terms of creepy and off-putting atmosphere. They are also very gory.  

RoyalOss RoyalOss says...

Both shows are rather violent slashers, who will survive? How can they stop the killing?

But Another is a bit like the movie Final Destination where Corpse Party is more like a real horror slasher.

Do note that Corpse Party is alot more violent and graphic as Another, it is not for the feint hearted.

AmitteSukku AmitteSukku says...

Both feature a lot of deaths, more or less sudden, because of curses. I recommend these only if you're not afraid of gore and/or blood.

wonkuenoemos wonkuenoemos says...

Have similar setting where the characters were trapped in mysterious location and they were murdered one by one. If you wanna watch it, prepare your mentality because you'll see when character died in terrible and unpredictable way. 

This warning just applies to you who doesn't like horror, cause it just small fry for someone who likes horror. XD

Riimaa Riimaa says...

They are kind of similar since they are both school horror. Plus the mains subject isa kind of dangerous school curse.

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Love gore? Well, obviously since you've seen Corpse Party/Another (please delete as appropriate) Want some more gore? Then give this a go! 

YariMari YariMari says...

Both are school horror with lots of gore and kids dying left to right. They also have the same eerie atmosphere.

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.

Issengard Issengard says...

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.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

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.

zackarith zackarith says...

cute little kids doing really bad things haha.  similar art style and feel as well as way the story progresses.

Larkawolfgirl Larkawolfgirl says...

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.

AnimeShima AnimeShima says...

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.

ShowerOfSunshine ShowerOfSunshine says...

Not as much gore as Corpse Party but certain episodes are a bit freaky. If you love mysterious shows and creepy children, then both of these are for you.

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

Do you like gore? Well look no further, because these series have it in bucketloads. Not for the feint of heart, although I guess if you're looking up recs for Corpse Party/Higurashi that doesn't really apply to you. 

Helivelton100 Helivelton100 says...

  • Two excellent horror / mystery animes, no doubt I recommend these two excellent works extremely interesting and macabre too ... =D !! 👻😉💀 !!

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

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.

Brad Brad says...

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. 

Pupa

Pupa

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.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

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.

Brad Brad says...

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.

Adonerisu Adonerisu says...

If you liked watching Corpse Party, you'll enjoy watching Highschool of the Dead.  Both of these anime series are set in a school setting, one in high school, and the other in an elementary school. Along with having an abundance of violence and gore within, albeit Highschool of the Dead has it because survival is necessary, while Corpse Party tells the story of something altogether different.

Mystery and emotions are rampant in both series, as well as a sense of urgency being present in many scenes, as in Highschool of the Dead, it is unknown where the pandemic is coming from and in Corpse Party, it is unknown how the students have arrived in the old elementary school.

Lovers of Corpse Party should definitely check Highschool of the Dead out, as well as lovers of Highschool of the Dead enjoying Corpse Party!

Ao Oni The Animation Movie

Ao Oni The Animation Movie

A town in the countryside surrounded by forests and mountains. Five members of the cultural anthropology club at an old western-style school are trying to come up with ideas for their presentation at the school’s culture festival, when they find a collection of folk tales gathered by a student in their club 40 years ago. They realize that the mysterious “Bellflower Oni” that appears in the folk tales may be the basis for the popular free game “Aooni”, and decide to make that their theme. They manage to make contact with the author of the Aooni game, but he dies mysteriously soon afterward. The club members become suspicious at the author’s death and began to investigate on their own, but encounter a secret they never should have touched: a secret underground prison in the school. For some reason all the fire doors at the school are locked, and they are trapped in the school. The sound of the strange footsteps they hear soon turn to their screams… A new tragedy of the Aooni is about to begin.

Both shows are gorefests which features a group of people trapped in a place trying to avoid meeting a very gruesome fate. They also have little plot, so even if I liked Corpse Party more I think fans of one would enjoy the other too.
