It’s that time of year again! Ghouls and other supernatural beings come out to play, kids binge eat candy and we all get to dress up in our favourite costumes. You’ve guessed it – it’s Halloween.
Now, for the past few years, around this time of year, I’ve had the pleasure (if I can actually truthfully say that?) of having Halloween-themed anime nights. Mostly because it’s now a tradition with my friends and mostly because I’m always intrigued to see what treats we were about to watch.
Considering things are a little different this year, I thought I would bring a slice of that and share it with you guys! So, starting tomorrow, for seven days there will be daily posts dedicated to anime with a little bit of a spook in!
I’m not saying that these are going to be the scariest anime of all time. Some people might find that these are scary, don’t get me wrong, but they’re definitely not the scariest out there and in this selection, there’s certainly a variety of genres in the shows and movies that suits basically everybody. Heck, some of the shows aren’t even serious to the point where they don’t take themselves seriously. They’re just some shows that stand out from my own taste of anime at Halloween that I haven’t had the chance to talk about just yet.
One thing is for certain, however. All of these shows have some sort of ghoulish element to them. They each contain a supernatural being, whether that be vampires, ghosts or any other creepy supernatural being you can think of. So, if you don’t particularly like horror anime but still want to watch something for Halloween, you might just find something here!
So, sit down, relax and enjoy this whirlwind of a series that might just influence your Halloween viewing this year.
