Prepare to cover your eyes, because this is a list of the bloodiest anime ever made. Sure, a lot of anime has some violence in it, but these shows will really gross you out with torn limbs, spewed blood, and whatever else you can think of.
People are eaten alive in bloody anime or action anime TV shows like Attack on Titan. Doesn’t that sound like a good time? If so, you should watch these anime, as they can be quite violent and bloody.
Before committing to an entire series, try a few out. These are possibly the most jarring anime available today, but if you think a television show is missing, you can let me know in the comments.
Parasyte -the maxim (2014)
Alien parasites are secretly descending toward Earth. Their mission: to take over a human body and thrive in secret. When a parasite tries to take over Shinji, a regular high school student, he stops it in his arm in order to save his mind.
The strange parasite strikes an uneasy truce with Shinji using the strange power of amorphous muscle: it will keep him alive and strong so that it can continue to live, and it will help protect him from other parasites that might not take kindly to Shinji’s mind still actively working. Can Shinji muster the courage to confront the parasites and defend humanity? And what difference would it make if he did?

Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World (2016)

He is killed shortly after arriving while attempting to assist a young half-elf he befriends, Emilia, who is a candidate to become the next ruler of the Kingdom of Lugunica, only to be resurrected some hours later. Subaru realises, after dying several times, that he has the ability to rewind time after death. Subaru begins working as a butler in one of the Roswaal Mathers’ Mansions after successfully assisting Emilia.

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress (2016)
During the Industrial Revolution, a mysterious virus appears that transforms infected humans into Kabane and rapidly spreads. Kabane are vicious undead creatures that cannot be defeated unless the glowing golden heart, which is protected by an iron layer, is pierced or an important body part is completely severed (such as the head). Unfortunately, most melee weapons and the bushi’s steam-powered guns are ineffective against them.
People on the island nation Hinomoto have built fortress-like “stations” to protect themselves from these creatures. People use fortified steam locomotives to access the stations and transport goods between them.
A hayajir hijacked by the kabane crashes into Aragane Station one day, and they take over the city. A young engineer named Ikoma takes advantage of the opportunity to successfully test his anti-kabane weapon, the “piercing gun,” but becomes infected in the process, though he manages to resist the virus and evolves into a Kabaneri, a human-kabane hybrid. Ikoma and the other survivors of the station board a hayajir named Ktetsuj, aided by Mmei, another Kabaneri who appears to help them, and depart to seek shelter elsewhere, fighting hordes of kabane along the way.
While the world’s nations strive to eliminate warfare and the existence of armies, private corporations are forming their own armies. The Kuryu group has been working on developing the ideal weapon: human beings capable of mastering their “mind shadow” known as Vajura. They were hoping for an advantage, but the experiment appears to have gone wrong.
Many years later, however, a strange young girl named Elaine escapes from the Kuryu research facility. Faced with hostile gangs, cybernetic agents, and other strange Kuryu members, she is forced to become the Genocyber, the first Vajura. When confronted with the Kyuryu group’s experiments and humanity’s inhumanities, she has no choice but to fight on, but at what cost?
Highschool of the Dead (2010)
Highschool of the Dead is set in modern-day Japan, beginning as the world is struck by a deadly pandemic that transforms humans into zombies, euphemistically referred to as “Them” by the main characters. The plot revolves around a group of high school students and the school nurse as they deal with the worldwide catastrophic event known as the “Outbreak.” While attempting to survive the zombie apocalypse, the cast must also contend with the additional threats of societal collapse, in the form of dangerous fellow survivors, and the potential decay of their own moral codes.
Beginning with high school, the students flee to town, where they must contend with a corrupt teacher and his students. They search their homes for survivors and rescue a young girl and a dog. Later, they hide out at a mall, pass through a police station, and eventually arrive at an elementary school that is supposed to be a safe haven.
Akame ga Kill! (2014)
Night Raid is the covert assassination arm of the Revolutionary Army, an uprising assembled to depose Prime Minister Honest, whose avarice and greed for power has led him to exploit the child emperor’s inexperience. The rest of the country is left to drown in poverty, strife, and ruin in the absence of a strong and benevolent leader. Though the Night Raid members are all experienced killers, they understand that taking lives is not something to be proud of and that they will almost certainly face retribution as they mercilessly eliminate anyone who stands in the way of the revolution.
Tatsumi, the newest member of this merry band of assassins, is a naive boy from a remote village who had embarked on a journey to help his impoverished hometown and was won over not only by Night Raid’s ideals, but also by their resolve. Akame ga Kill! follows Tatsumi as he fights the Empire, encountering powerful weapons, enemy assassins, challenges to his own morals and values, and, ultimately, discovering what it truly means to be an assassin with a cause.

He goes about his morning, unconcerned, until he realises that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn’t just a coincidence. Yuki is now thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners in order to become the new Lord of Time.
