It’s been a long year since we last met here… alone... and in the dark. All Hallows’ Eve is approaching, and it’s time to gather around the safety of the fire and share tales of terror. Tonight, we present four scary anime tales to chill your bones…

That is if you dare to listen...

The Torment of Ajin: Demi-Human

Kei from Ajin: Demi-Human cries after being tortured.

Death has been with us since the beginning. It is the most primal of our fears — our eldest friend and our oldest enemy.

Humans want immortality, and we have historically gone to great lengths to obtain it.

Which is why the 47 immortal Ajin know the consequences of discovery are agony and imprisonment. Inside shadowy facilities are those who search for secrets within a captive Ajin’s body, and they’d stop at nothing to pry them loose.

Have you heard of “The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg”? In this version, the goose cannot die.

But it still feels pain.

The Haunting of the Dusk Maiden of Amnesia

Teiichi from Dusk Maiden of Amnesia realizes in horror that Yuuko’s ghost is lurking in the shadows behind him.

There’s a mirror inside the old school building. If you find it, don’t gaze into it. If you do, don’t turn around. A ghost will appear and drag you inside the looking glass.

You should ask Yuuko about it. She knows that Saikyo Academy hides many secrets.

She’s been haunting the school for decades, after all.

Yuuko can’t remember how she died. If Teiichi wishes to help her, then he should do so... but he should beware of what lurks in the shadows.

The Warning From the New World

An ogre rushes towards the viewer in From the New World.

A thousand years from now, five friends come of age in an era where humanity learned to overcome the destructive impulses responsible for our violent history.

But have we? Victors have a vested interest to write themselves as heroes. If you look beyond the narrative, you’ll discover that humans often build the foundations of peace out of bones. Children shouldn’t poke their noses where they don’t belong. Not when the adults keep dark secrets.

Blood paid for the future’s happily ever after. And sometimes, the past cannot slumber within its grave.

The Invasion of Parasyte -the maxim-

A parasite is about to eat a human in Parasyte -the maxim-

Tales of man-eating monsters have something common. They are from a human perspective.

Why are we here?

It’s an old question with an older answer. We are not the only ones to ask it — monsters ask, too. Which do you find more frightening: That monsters exist, or that their ability to ask questions proves they’re just like us?

Remember These Four Scary Anime This HalloweenShadowy hands on the floor reach towards a schoolgirl.

We hope you take these four tales to heart. Perhaps heeding them will keep you safe. Then again, perhaps not. Four is an unlucky number in Japan. It’s pronounced “shee,” which sounds like “shi,” the Japanese word for “death.”

We have plenty of stories left, so take a moment and add a new terrifying tale to your collection. If you are interested in hearing more, we’ll let you know.

Till next time, dear reader.
