Gore animes are pretty scary to watch at first, but as you see a few more, you will start developing immunity to the bloodshed. I personally have watched plenty of good gore anime and although it doesn’t bother me as much, sometimes it still gets to me. Here is my list of the best gore anime series that I recommend that you watch. Also, if you haven’t watch this genre before, you are warned…there will be plenty of head chopping,limb cutting, sudden deaths and unexpected bloodshed.
Anime "Best of" Genre List
The Diclonius, a mutated homo sapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind, possesses two horns in their heads, and has a “sixth sense” which gives it telekinetic abilities. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, a young and psychotic Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murder most of the guards in the laboratory, only to get shot in the head as she makes her escape.
She survives and manages to drift along to a beach, where two teenagers named Kouta and Yuka discovers her. Having lost her memories, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, “Nyuu,” and the two allow her to stay at Kouta’s home. However, it appears that the evil “Lucy” is not dead just yet…

There are two major groups involved in the ensuring war. The first group consists of monsters known as Chiropterans who can change their appearances into that of human beings.
