Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, Shiki Recommendations
- lots of blood, horror.
Really recommend Shiki if you enjoyed Higurashi
Both are set in a rural ton where unknown horrific events unfold
*Both anime utilize well the "village-wide", isolated "disaster" theme.
*Both anime have dark overriding tones, intimate and manipulative perspective. shifts, and have their fair share of violence.
*Both anime are relatively psychotic, and use death as a major theme.
*Both anime escalate to the point best described as "war", and therefore tell a story of conflict - of great drama and friction.
Both of these series had incredible writing. The stories were well woven, and will keep you guessing. Great evolution, great pacing, are two common themes shared by these series.
