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.

So I decided to watch Corpse Party because of the intriguing name and of the things I'd heard about it. ("It's so disturbing!")
I wasn't exactly disappointed... I just have high standards. I'm extremely critical of the horror genre because I am not easily scared and they usually lack a good story, which is most important to me.
It was better than I thought it would be. I honestly expected a half-assed ending with no real conclusion and tons of plot holes. But it was actually pretty good. The explanations for the events in the story were interesting and made decent sense. But that only came into play in the last episode. The first 3 episodes just weren't that original because the overall idea isn't that original. (Kids trapped in a creepy Elementary school?) I'm glad I decided to push through to the ending, though.
Eh, it was your average anime style. It wasn't cheap, but it wasn't amazing either. The only prominent part of the art was the massive amounts of gore.
Pretty good. I liked the opening song a lot and the soundtrack really set the mood.
They did a good job of introducing the characters in such a short amount of time. I became pretty attached to some of them after just 2 episodes. (I don't recommend doing that, though, haha.) The characters were all pretty different so you got to see different reactions to the horror which was good. My favorites were Satoshi, Ayumi, and Seiko.
To me, this anime wasn't really scary, per say. It was most just nasty. I wouldn't even say that it was disturbing: to me, I've heard of waaaay more disturbing horror premises. But I have to say, the guts and gore in this anime were on point. I felt kinda nauseous throughout watching it just because... can anyone die a peaceful death? Nope. If you're into that, then you'll love this anime. The selling point is its massive amounts of spurting blood. There are some pretty creative deaths!
I'm going to give this a 7 overall because I got through it and the ending was pretty damn good. The first three episodes are kinda slow, but it's worth it in the end. And if you're easily scared, than they probably wouldn't be that slow, haha. I'd say the anime is a lot scarier than the game just because of obvious reasons (the game is literally pixels). And did they hire the same VA's as the game? If not, they were extremely similar which was cool!
To sum it up: watch this if you love blood and like a good ending.
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 cliffhanger like Umineko left us with. But what I really want to emphasis on is the fact that series fit everything into 4, half-hour long episodes. This is amazing for that small length of time.
I also want to bring in the concept of how good the disturbing art was. The art in this series did such a good job at making the art disturbing and grotesque that I almost vomited a couple times throughout the series. I did notice some similarities between this and the Team Silent Silent Hill game's art, what with blood coming down the walls and bodies everywhere, and that was generally a good choice, just to make the series that little bit more disturbing.
The opening theme was pretty good and most of the background sound, or even the lack of sound at points was a good choice for the series. You can really see the inspiration from Akira Yamaoka within the soundtrack and I thought that it was genuinely a good choice to go that way for a horror series.
The place where this series is a bit lacking is the unoriginal cast of characters. Though, to be fair, it is harder to create a cast of characters within this genre of horror that is original while also keeping it in a more modern time line, you could of done better than taking the generic cast of highschool students (2 possible lesbians, 1 guy with glasses, 1 hopelessly brave guy, the little sister, the occult freak, and the guy with no defining features what so ever, otherwise know as the boring guy). But the character of Sachiko was pretty original. Half of the things that happened with this character I didn't see coming and I just love her voice actress.
But for my overall enjoyment. I really enjoyed this series. it was a very genuinely well made horror series that kind of goes away from the norm. I do genuinely believe that there aren't many series that pulled off this sort of thing nearly as well, and definitely not in the same time frame as Corpse Party. read more
Students of a certain school are involved with something supernatural and they experience tragic deaths and accidents.
Groups of high school students are killed in mysterious ways by some seemingly supernatural occurrence. Another goes outside of the school while Corpse Party only takes place inside a school, but the school buildings are similar and creepy (despite Another's being to a far lesser extent). They have similar character designs and the characters have similar psychological breakdowns due to the extreme situations they are placed in, but Corpse Party is about ten times gorier than Another.
Both take place in a supernatural world/school where an unknown force causes many people to die, usually in horrifying ways. There is some sort of curse involved in the incidents and the characters try to escape.
Both contain blood and has a relatively dark atmosphere.
Tragic and scary stories happening in schools which have myths. Corpse party has even more gore contents than Another, and it is a collection of short stories instead of a season-long series. Hysteria, screams, blood and deaths.
Well, to put it simple, without spoiling anything.
- Loads a gore
-All of the stuff happens at a school, just like Corpse Party
-very strong on the story,and story before the anime.
I was very thirsty for some gore animes when i watched corpse party, so if anybody wants just more than corpse party, watch Another, very great characters, story is perfect, animation and sounds are good, really creepy most of the moments, and the deaths.. The deaths are over the top.
For the corpse party, it was just simply glorious deaths.
^ Enjoy! - Wuf
The action takes place mostly at school and it involves supernatural. There are many tragic deaths. A group of students needs to solve a mystery in order to escape a certain "curse".
Both series are blood spurting, thrilling anime with a shroud of mystery.
Well, this anime doesn't have any similarities to the protagonist that you liked or loved, but I have created this recommendation to share the similarities of the story.
Both series' story is surrounded by mystery which unknown to the characters, which they are trying to stop.
Both horror animes, with some bloody deaths.
Horror anime based on games where people are trapped in schools. It has similar motifs to Danganronpa, but a lot more gore.
Psychological horror anime (well, Corpse Party makes DR look extremely tame in comparison) that feature a group of students trapped in a mysterious school and no way out. They have to work together (and sometimes go against each other) as they try to cope with being trapped. As I mentioned before though, DR has hardly any gore while CP is gore galore.
Both of these anime are pretty creepy and deal with the plot either your going to kill someone or you will be killed. They both have the school atmosphere, and in both animes you cant leave the school. They also both deal with solving mysteries. Though they both share a qusition, who is the mastermind behind all of this?
Both have group of students trapped inside a school, trying to get away which mostly results in getting killed. Both are bloody, but Corpse Party is a lot more extreme. Both have sadistic masterminds.
Both involve: students trapped in school, supernatural, both are psichological animes. However, Danganronpa is not gore, just a few scenes with blood (compared to Corpse Party)
Both include the characters being locked inside of a high school with no escape, and both include heaps of deaths throughout the whole thing. Corpse Party is far more bloody and gorey, but they're both pretty similar. Both have an evil mastermind that made it all happen in the first place.
