I woudl have to say that Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni is the most disturbing anime I've ever seen... They make the characters all cute and bubbly then bam the cute little characters turn in to raving screaming crazy people with knives. I think it'd be hard to top the disturbingness of this anime. Hentai is not included as everyones seen disturbing H-anime...

Higurashi is great though. If you're referring to violent anime you might as well check out this topic. If not, carry on ^^.

If you haven't realised that other topic was made by me... haha
That was for the most violent... I'm looking for something more disturbing than Higurashi... Higurashi is violent but I'd say Gantz is more violent...
Higurashi made me feel somewhat afraid aha.

Ah yeah, I forgot you opened that one. Sorry about that. Can't think of a disturbing anime right now, the first two episodes of Dokuro-chan made had some bits that were slightly 'ew~' though haha.

I haven't seen any anime series that I would describe as "disturbing".
I'm hoping Berserk will change my opinion when I see it.

Hentai cannot be disturbing!
But hmm.. I don't think I can say I've seen anything 'disturbing' yet.

I beg to differ....


I've seen Hentai scenes that made people look away from the TV and I didn't find it "disturbing" at all. Everyone has different opinions.

I'm starting to think I should watch this Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (even if I'm not into "cute characters").

For me the most disturbing anime is Elfen Lied, but in a good way. The others would be Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni and Now and Then, Here and There.

Anyone that says Hentai can't be disturbing clearly hasn't seen Shitai Wo Arau, Ail Maniax, Bondage Game or Pigeon Blood. These are 4 of the sickest animes ever... they involve various very very sick tortures... like

After finishing Elfen Lied, I almost wanted nothing to do with Gantz, but for some reason. I started watching and have to say I find Gantz to be a dark comedy with the blood and gore there thrown in for Giggles. The only time when Blood and Gore is funny is when it goes extremely over the top and the series is designed to be kick ass. Elfen Lied's gore and blood just felt they were overdoing it for no reason. I actually find Gantz to be one of the most realistic portayals of Humanity that i have seen.

I second this. I remember when I first watched Gantz - I was just in awe of how beautifully obscene, psychologically realistic yet strangely humorous it was.. I mean, to think that an action series can be so deep, yet contain lots of aliens and boobs at the same time.. astonishing!

Amen, I still found the fact that it had lots of comic moments to be quite interesting and not exactly what I expected from this show.

Futanari can be pretty disturbing u_u.

Umm.. Green Green was pretty disturbing.. Bear Sex or Homo Three-Some.. That'd scare anyone for life.

Moekan The Animation anyone? It is one f*cked up show, I honestly don't understand how anyone could sit through it and not be disturbed by the end.

I`m sure the people i know who`ve seen Pico to Chico, can agree with me when i say it`s the most disturbing.
@_@

I also didn`t like Boku no Sexual Harasment much either. >_>;;
&& i don`t need a reason, because it`s obvious.

The most disturbing anime I've viewed so far would have to have been Popotan. Mainly for the culture differences (family nudity) rather than the Elfen Lied / Gantz blood & violence. Don't get me wrong - its not big deal to watch hentai (even if its just to = 'laugh' at). I found myself turning away quite often at the gratuitous, never-ending tub scenes. Perhaps I was giving the series too much credit even though it's based on an ecchi/loli game. Anyway, I ended up getting rather attached to Ai, Mai, Mii, and Mae but I didn't understand the reason for the constant (almost every ep!) full frontal (with strategically places bubbles or splashes) nudity. For a while I was hesitant to say I even viewed this series, let alone placing it in a top 20.

For all the listed titles here, my take would be that shock value = good!?

Some of the most disturbing anime scenes I think I have ever seen are actually found in Full Metal Alchemist. I know, I know, its pretty tame compaired to things like Hellsing or Elfen Lied. But hear me out. Its only one scene, but it freaks me waaay out more then anything else I have ever seen.
The scene where you find out that that one alchemist, The Sewing Life Alchemist, merged his daughter and his dog together? That is just.. horrific. It does so much crazies to my brian.

Not sure if you consider this disturbing but Monster was a good one. even thou you kinda know whats going on and going to happen i would rank it up there, not so much on the violence but the story line its self.

That's not Nana, that's a very young Lucy

Elfen Lied sticks out the most.....everyone had depressing backgrounds, and there's really no light at the end of the tunnel

animated mutalation is not as disturbing to me.....i get more grossed out by real movies

Most disturbing for me is either Neon Genesis Evangelion or Death Note. I find Death Note really disturbing.......Light just wants to kill full stop....

I was disturbed by Boku no Piko and Enzai. they were very distasteful to say the least. And Hamtaro creeped me out as well.

The only animes I've seen that I could class as disturbing have been some of the more fucked up hentai series. And it's not so much from them being sick as from the realization that their existence means that there are people who get off on that stuff.

Higurashi and Berserk and the like I would describe as graphic and intense, but not disturbing in the least.

Elfen Lied I agree was just brutal violence. The grossest disturbing hentai I've ever seen so far was Night Shift Nurses. Ugh.

I guess Nekojiru Gekijou, and the much more well known OVA to it, Cat Soup, were the most diturbing, but man do I love those hellish Kitties.

Disturbing? Probably Paranoia Agent. That series bent my mind til it was almost broken.

Paprika disturbed me a little bit in I had a hard time having pleasant dreams after I watched it.

For content I'd say Tokyo Tales. Seeing a giant fatty guy, rape some bishie to death... ::shiver::

Definitely disturbing. Probably the mix of innocent looking loli and insane violence. Actually..everything was creepy about that show...even the op was kinda scary.
