The licensing of horror anime has always generated the most buzz and debate. While the supernatural is one part of the genre, human-centered thrillers are also a part of it. The film is most likely to feature a lot of gory and scream-inducing moments, as well as some somewhat violent scenes.
Crunchyroll and Funimation, two of the most popular anime streaming services, try their hardest to keep horror anime available in places where it is illegal. Funimation’s acquisition of Crunchyroll for almost $1 billion, on the other hand, means that things are about to change.
While it’s unclear what this implies for availability, there’s a chance we could see a bigger collection of anime. So, without further ado, here are Funimation’s top 10 most terrifying horror anime, as determined by their MAL scores.
10. Corpse Princess
