Synopsis

The story is set in Heavenly Host Elementary School, an elementary school that was torn down following the murders and disappearances of several of its staff and students. By the start of the story, another school called Kisaragi Academy has been built over the elementary school site. One night, a group of students from Kisaragi are telling ghost stories when a sudden earthquake transports them to another dimension where Heavenly Host Elementary still exists and is haunted by the ghosts of the school's murdered children. The students of Kisaragi Academy try to find their way home and survive the other mysterious forces that haunt the school.

SHORT REVIEW

Elfen Lied, Higurashi, Another think you know gore?
I introduce Corpse Party

Corpse Party is a COMPLETELY horror anime.

Basically a group of students suddenly find themselves in an older version of their school which is haunted. They try to get out and survive.

Just to point it out first this only contains 4 episodes with lengths of 30 minutes.
So there will be mysteries unsolved and no character development. The only way to enjoy this show is to watch the here and now.

The sound was extremely well done. The screams, blood bursting out and of course the crazy laughs.

Corpse Party contains (IMO) the best read more

Hello. Well this was probably the most disturbing thing I have ever seen in my life. Not only is this the most disturbing animated series I have ever watched, it is the most disturbing fiction work I have had the pleasure of experiencing.

This is one of those series that makes you cringe but you still love it because it takes you on a well written story. Where as this is still not my favorite horror anime, I still think that it did an amazing job with what little time it had. It had a story and a conclusion and we were not left with a read more

Watching Corpse Party is literally like watching a horror movie. There you are, trapped. Can't even shout, can't even cry, the dangers are coming by. When you realize that death is coming before you, screams are shouted out but you won't be heard. But that's just the beginning. For once you're trapped, Corpse Party will take you to a place where your life will never ever be the same again. (that is if and only if you escape alive)

Naming an anime "Corpse Party: Tortured Souls" is like making a promise to the viewer that you're going to deliver with exactly that. It's easy enough to expect the opposite; after all, for some reason a lot of would-be horrifying, gory anime are hit with the unfortunate black bars of censorship, or the convenient off-screen carnage of PG-13 justice, or otherwise just have a mechanism to protect your eyes from seeing violence, even if violence is the reason you're there. Sometimes the Blu-ray edition arrives months later to fix that, and sometimes it just remained unfixed, forever covered in a shining white light across the read more

Anime: Another
Students of a certain school are involved with something supernatural and they experience tragic deaths and accidents.

Anime: Danganronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei The Animation
Horror anime based on games where people are trapped in schools. It has similar motifs to Danganronpa, but a lot more gore. 
reportRecommended by XxXTsubomiXxX
Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Horror anime involving a group of students where many people die gruesomely (but the gore is much more extreme in Corpse Party than Higurashi). Some characters are driven insane and just about everyone acts unnaturally due to the extreme psychological pressures and fear at one point or another. They both have some supernatural elements. 
reportRecommended by Asfaria
Anime: Elfen Lied
Extremely gory and mature anime (Elfen Lied has more nudity while Corpse Party has more gore). They have some supernatural elements as well as many psychological elements where characters go insane due to fear, anger, etc. They both have dangerous, murderous little girls. 
reportRecommended by Asfaria
Anime: Gakkougurashi!
Gakkou Gurashi, like Corpse Party, is a violently horrifying anime that wears a moe-mask at all times. 
reportRecommended by Lolicon
Anime: Umineko no Naku Koro ni
- People are trapped, can't get out (in Umineko's case it was in a mansion, Corpse Party's was in an old school)
- Gruesome deaths (although Corpse Party is more gruesome)
- The culprit are both insane
