10 horror anime that looks like it’s for kids

Share This Blog

Today we’re going to be looking at anime that’s… hmmm what’s the word?… Ahhh, Fucked up… 

The anime on this list may look all warm and bubbly on the outside but.. once you dig a little deeper and get past the first episode shit goes from 0 to 100 real quick then you realize. 

you probably shouldn’t have recommended that same anime to Lil Timmy. 


10. Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka

At number 10 we have Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka. Now for some fucking reason, Japanese people love turning specifically magical girl anime into their sick and twisted fantasies.

However, this mangaka decided to take this to a whole new level by combining magical girl anime which I already don’t like, with the Seinen genre. Then decided maybe it wasn’t enough so he decided to top it off by adding the military genre to it. So you have these teenage magical girls fighting with the military holding assault rifles.

I can already tell you it’s probably best not to watch it. not because it’s messed up but because it’s also one of the worst anime I have ever laid my eyes on.

9. The Promised Neverland

At number 9 we have The Promised Neverland, To begin with, this anime is genius at its storytelling. The anime starts with a slightly odd beginning indicating that something is wrong with the world they live in. But it seems like the orphanage is protecting these kids from the dangers of the outside world.

Little did I know they were feeding them to it. literally.

8. School-Live!

For number 8 We have School-Live, And… My god. This anime hits you like a mother fucking train. It’s like the promised neverland in terms of everything seems okay at first with little hints that tell you that something is off, but by the time you realize what you got yourself into its too late. I mean who in the hell would think that this anime is disturbing as all hell. But that’s exactly what the mangaka wants you to think. 

7. Made in abyss

At number 7 We have Made in Abyss, the beginning of this anime made it look like it was this innocent adventure show. unlike the previous two, you don’t find out it’s for adults until it hits episode 5. After that, it gets worse and worse after every episode and honestly, I would say that this is more disturbing to me then berserk but if you can move past that I honestly think The world-building in this anime is amazing.

6. Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku

For number 6 we have, Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku. Now if I’m being brutally honest this anime is… Fucking terrible, but that’s just my opinion. It’s about magical girls so what you might ask well? whats wrong with it? Well, it turns out that this anime is about magical girls fighting to the death. And for that reason, I’m out

5. Akame ga Kill!

For number 5 we have Akame Ga Kill! This anime is much more well known so you probably know of the horror that lies within but when I first watched it little did I know this innocent shonen anime was going to turn much more fucked up.

Now I would say personally there are two stages when a person watches this anime. I thought this anime was amazing when I first watched it but then a couple of years pass I decide to rewatch it lets just say… Calling it garbage would be a compliment.

4. When They Cry

At number 4 we have when they cry. Luckily you get to find out that this anime is a horror, Psychological, Supernatural, Thriller, Piece of stay the fuck away if you value your sanity… right off the bat, despite the cover making it look like low budget shojo.

Now I can’t say much about it because I haven’t watched it since… like I said before this type of anime is not my forte. I can say it might be worth checking out since it has a pretty high rating on myanimelist.com

3. Re:ZERO

For number 3 we have Re:zero. Let’s be honest when you imagine an isekai anime you think of a cute, bubbly, cheap story, that sometimes has a harem involved. Now When you start watching re:zero it has some of these elements so you don’t suspect anything… But then episode 1b or halfway through the 50-minute version hits you harder than when Kaido knocked luffy the fuck out.

It’s Similar to Akame ga kill in that but I would say this anime is much more enjoyable. Even though it does have its messed up moments I would still recommend this anime.

2. Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica

At Number 2 we have Mahou Shoujo Madoka. Honestly, this anime is the best magical girl show on this list. Now I wouldn’t go watch it in my free time but it’s still a step above the others. The show starts becoming dark at the end of the 3rd episode which probably gave you plenty of time to convince you it’s for kids. I love how this has a subtle hint of darkness that doesn’t get revealed until later on in the series.


And for number 1 we have school days. This anime is pretty legendary for all the wrong reasons. I would not recommend this anime. In fact, I wouldn’t recommend any of the anime on this list except re:zero and the promised neverland. Mainly because I’m a pure shonen fan. So mainly this type of anime is on the complete opposite side of the spectrum and scares the shit out of me. This anime is pretty much on this list as a warning to stay the fuck away. Especially someone younger than the age of 17.

So this concludes the blog if you’re a fan of hunter x hunter check out this video where we made some insane edits to the dodgeball scene during the Greed Island arc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSPnOcmZ43I
