Top 10 Guro Anime

shiki-guro-anime-002

Anime fans strive to rank the most grotesque and horrible anime ever made in this spiteful ranking of anime carnage and perversion.

The criteria for being considered a “guro” anime are fairly vague – guro, shortened from the English “grotesque” and often further adapted into the Japanese style adjective “guroi,” has much the same broad connotations as it does in English…

In practice this seems to mean “guro” can easily take in anime entirely free of blood and guts if they are instead filled with sufficient horror and cruelty (Madoka clearly fits this mould).

Most anime in the ranking enthusiastically manage all four, however:

1. Elfen Lied

2. Highschool of the Dead

3. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

4. Deadman Wonderland

5. Shiki

6. School Days

7. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

8. Umineko no Naku Koro ni

9. Neon Genesis Evangelion

10. Freezing

Putting aside the content of the anime as a whole, the most extreme content is clearly to be found in guro vivisection anime Shiki.
