Autumn of Terror: Horror Anime
By Geeky Gem
Hello there, How have you been? I have been trying to tink of things I can tell you about during Autumn of Terror. Then I remembered I like horror but I also like anime so way not share with you something that combines the two? Horror anime it is then, here are some of my favourite ones with pictures and videos you lucky people.
Hellsing was given to me by a friend under instruction that I watch or else, so as I didn’t want to mess with him I went home and watched it. It is a brilliant show that is dark and edgy but with some lights bits in it. The story is about Alucard who works for the Holy Order of Protestant Knights, whose job it is to search and destroy those that threaten the safety of the Queen and Country. This can be anything from undead and other supernatural forces. Alucard is a powerful vampire, I should have mentioned earlier right? Oh well he is and he is awesome and his sidekick is former police officer Seras Victoria, Alucard turns her into a vampire fairly early in the show, she is the light part I was talking about as she her get used to becoming a vampire is funny. If you havent seen the show here are the opening credits for you to enjoy.
Blood + is based on the early life of the central character from the movie Blood: The Last Vampire, Saya Otonashi a seemly ordinary girl is going about her life when she is attacked by a Chiropteran, it is then that she learns she is the only one that can defeat them. Armed with her katana, well what other weapon would have to fight beats of the night. She travels around hunting them down, see a simple story I feel. This is a really good anime and a perfect build up after the Blood: The Last Vampire, which you havent seen it you really should.
Death Note is ones of those gems that you find when you aren’t really looking for anything at all. I found this one when I was looking for movies that stared Tatsuya Fujiwara, other than Battle Royale. Then I noticed he was going to be a movie called Death Note, it kind of went from there, first I read some of the manga then moved onto the anime, which blew me away. I loved it, the story follows Light Yagami, a high school student. Who one day finds a mysterious book called a Death Note, inside are number of rules for the use of the book. The book was dropped on Earth by Ryuk a Shingami or god of death. Who was bored and wanted to see what a human might do with his Death Note. The Death Note allows the user to kill anybody whose name they write within its pages. Light decides this could be used for the ower of good, but is that what really happens you will have to watch it to find out.
Elfen Lied is another anime I fond when I wasn’t really looking for anything, once I saw the opening few minutes that was me hooked, it’s a really brilliant show. It centres around Lucy, who is no normal girl she is Diclonius she is a mutant, she looks human to a point but then you notice that she des in fact have horns. Diclonii have special powers they can use telekinesis, Lucy who has been rejected by human’s wants revenge and so the show follows her as she try ‘s to get it.
High School of the Dead
As Caelrona mentioned High School of the Dead in a earlier a blog I wont linger on it for long. It is however thanks to her blog that I sat down an watched this show, I mean it has zombies in it who doesn’t want to see a zombie anime. Caelrona is right its a brilliant show and if you get time to watch it then do so. All you really need to know is in the title of the show, its a hifh school that is now over run with zombies and the last of the stuents nw have to surivie. Here are the opening credits just for you to see, if this is the show for you.
There you have it folks some horror anime for you to enjoy.
