The Perfect Anime To Watch On Halloween

Wednesday 19th October 2016


With Halloween right on our doorstep, we’ve decided to put together a list of our top five anime to watch on Halloween. There are so many shows to choose from and this is only our opinion, so make sure you let us know which shows would make your top five!

PARASYTE

Parasyte
Parasyte is the perfect show to watch on Halloween. It's dark, gory and features body snatching aliens - what's not to love?! Whether you've seen it before or will be jumping into it for the first time, Parasyte is definitely one to watch on the scariest night of the year.

 

DEATH NOTE

Death-Note
Considered a modern classic by fans, Death Note could make any top five list, but none more so than a Halloween themed one. As far as supernatural thrillers go, Death Note has it all: creepy monster Shinigami, psychological mind games and plenty of death!

 

HIGH SCHOOL OF THE DEAD

Highschool of the Dead
Zombies, blood and... boobs: High School of the Dead has it all! With its terrifying zombies, over the top action and endless fan service, the show is perfect for a scary night in… just, err, don’t watch it with your parents…

 

PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA
Madoka Magica

The dark magical girl series, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, is flooded with Halloween themes, such as the “Witches” that haunt the characters in the series and the “Nightmares” that appear in the third movie Rebellion. Dim the lights and be prepared for a whole new take on the magical girl genre!

 

SOUL EATER

Soul-Eater
Now, Soul Eater is a show that just screams Halloween. Its fantastic art style, setting and characters feel like something torn out of the mind of Tim Burton. This supernatural, action-packed comedy series is a must watch, so join Maka and Soul as they take down evil beings in their quest to collect souls!

Parasyte

Andrew Osmond catches the live-action premiere of Hitoshi Iwaaki’s Kiseiju
The Tokyo International Film Festival closed with the live-action Parasyte, a superb blend of SF, comedy and primarily horror, where the levity of the early scenes freezes into a drama with an ice-cold alien grip.
We are very excited to share with you more information on our upcoming releases!
Parasyte is a manga by Hitoshi Iwaaki, published between 1988-1995 in Japan. It has since received two recent adaptations in the form of two live action movies and an anime from studio Madhouse. Both are available to purchase now in the UK.

‘Utsukushiki Zankoku na Sekai’ (This Beautiful Cruel World) is, on the whole, a wistful and enigmatic song that seems strangely disconnected from a series that regularly deals with death and despair. Yoko Hikasa’s mesmerising vocals manage to draw the viewer in, lending an air of reflection and regret.
