Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine ...

Both Elfen Lied and Highschool of the Dead are filled with blood. The creators don't hodl back when it comes to blood. They are both full of violence and gore. They are just both awesome.

Both of these series contain a lot of graphic places, both physically and ecchi wise (although HSotD barely slows down any on the ecchi) and have a rather dark tone throughout the series.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says

Ecchi and violence do I need to say more...okay I will.  While the main story of both series is fairly different the main focus of each series is not and that is to entertain the viewer with scenes of complete/partial nudity and lots of gore.  With an overall dark tone to both series if you've already seen one of them then you should strongly consider checking out the other.

When They Cry: Higurashi

When They Cry: Higurashi

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...

watching Highschool of the Dead reminds me of Higurashi--albeit with a lot of ecchi. this series really holds nothing back, as far as the violence goes. Higurashi is the same in that it captures the expressions of the characters really well. if you liked one, chances are you'll like the other.

i think they are similar in terms of gore, but higurashi is the greater horror. They both have teenagers who didnt want to be involved but had found themselves in the middle of it all.

The feeling of a cold chill slowly crawling its way up your spine... the feeling of dread as you watch the world's sense of humanity dwindling into the night... and the feeling of excitement as you eagerly feast your eyes on the next episode are all trademarks of Higurashi and Highschool of the Dead. They both deal with the same interesting topic... "In the face of danger would you forsake your humanity?"

Both are very interesting and very thrilling to watch. Higurashi leans towards the "creepy and disturbing" but nontheless entertaining; while Highschool of the Dead (a.k.a H.O.T.D) has many exhilerating action scenes which leave you begging for more.

H.O.T.D while having an interesting and very creepy foundation (world overrun by zombies, survival of the fittest) doesn't quite make the cut as a "horror" anime but rather an "adventure" anime, because of all the action scenes. Higurashi on the other hand has a much more gloomy, tense, grotesque and disturbing element to it which is surprisingly addictive (a warning though, Higurashi is NOT for the faint of heart, the very first scene of the very first episode is enough to turn off anybody who isn't a fan of horror.)

H.O.T.D has a much broader "scope" in that the world has been overrun by zombies a la Resident Evil and there is no "safe place" in the world. The sane have been driven mad from paranoia and succumbed to their primal instinct of "survival of the fittest." On the other hand, Higurashi takes place in a small village secluded from the city, which only adds to the creepy element; because of the village's seclusion there is no place to run for safety (unless you run for a couple of hours.)

From the superficial description provided it would appear that these two animes are vastly different; however they are the same in that they provoke the viewer to delve deeper for "what it means to be human" H.O.T.D capitalizes it while Higurashi may not directly pose this question to the viewer. All in all, both are very good animes and if you enjoyed one you would certainly enjoy the other.



Yuki Takeya loves her school. She loves it so much, in fact, that she actually lives there! She's part of the "School-Life Club", a group of four girls and their dog who camp out in the club room at night and grow their own food on the school roof. But why is Yuki the only one who still attends classes? And why doesn't anyone...

Simple both anime revolves on students trying to survive a zombie apocalypse the difference is HOTD(boobs+zombies+fanservice+irrelevant boob shaking=sht) meanwhile Gakkou Gurashi(loli+zombies+feels+solid plot=godtier animu) and good thing HOTD has more concetrated action while Gakkou Gurashi concetrates more on how to live life despite of this tragedy.. So if you loved zombie apocalypse anime on different angles I recommend both :)

its goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood

These anime have extremely similar premises, including survival in a zombie apocalypse within a school building. The main difference is that while there is a more moe sense in Gakkou Gurashi, there is more of an ecchi sense in High School of the Dead.
