The various corporations in contention for world domination aspire to take control of the sisters. But things get out of control, and chaos will soon prevail.

A classic among the classics of post-Akira cyberpunk, Genocyber (1993-94) is one of the most beastly bets of anime.

Although seen today, it gives the feeling that it does the gore theme. The serial based on the manga by Tony Takezaki marked a point and apart in the question of showing taqueria.

16. BLOOD+

The expression blood in spurts takes on all its meaning in the Blood franchise. It was born with the turn of the Millennium in the television series Blood + (2005-06). It is perhaps the most achieved of its many transmedia deliveries.

If you like vampires, bloodthirsty deaths, and the color ‘Pantone hemoglobin’ is your favorite, it is clear that you can not miss the serial produced by Production I.G, Aniplex, and directed by sensei Junichi Fujisaku.

The plot puts Saya Kisaragi, a seemingly normal student who suffers from outbreaks of amnesia, back on the front lines.

Everything seems to run its course until one afternoon when a chiropter attacks him. A man, out of nowhere, helps him get away from the monster by giving him a katana.

It will be the beginning of a journey around the world – from Japan to Vietnam, Russia, France, and, finally, the USA. In search of answers, slaughtering bloodsuckers and always accompanied by Haij, her devoted knight.

Refinement and brutality in a serial that did not have, at least on screen, a continuation as powerful as this first television installment.

The paths taken by the serial Blood-C (2011), an alternative continuation of The Last Vampire and much more marina in killings than its predecessor, provoked fiery reactions in the otaku world.

When the film The Last Darkness (2012) wanted to amend the plan, striving to undo certain decisions given, not a few opportunities had already been lost.

Even so, the Blood franchise remains one of the most paradigmatic on gore and dismembered bodies. Poetry of the trickle.

Where to watch it: Blood+ was seen in La 2, while the final chapter, The Last Darkness, was in Filmin. Unfortunately, now, none of their deliveries are available on streaming platforms.


Deadman Wonderland is a manga written by Jinsei Kataoka and illustrated by Kazuma Kondou. In its anime version consists of 12 episodes directed by Koichi Hatsumi.

But one day, everything changes when after a terrible event at his school. He is unjustly accused of being guilty of a crime he has not committed and sentenced to death in “Deadman Wonderland.”

This horrible place is the only prison in Japan controlled by a private company that also uses prisoners as tourist attractions. It carries out combats in which many of them die.

When Ganta arrives there, he discovers that people have acquired powers after the catastrophe. They plan to escape that place that robs them of their freedom.

This anime not only promises you a disturbing plot that hooks you from the first chapter, but you will also find in it a good part of gore and psychological terror that, without a doubt, will not leave you indifferent.

Terra Formars was created by Yū Sasuga and illustrated by Kenichi Tachibana. In this anime, the end of the world, in the most gore style, is just around the corner.

To do this, they will use cockroaches to mdi of food source for the mold that must generate oxygen. Finally, in 2577 the ship of six crew members is ready to land, who will be in charge of checking if the invention has fulfilled its goal?
