Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Shinreigari Recommendations
Ghost Hound and Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni is similar in terms of the psychological things it might give the viewer while watching it. Although Ghost Hound has a more complicated and professional way of showing and stating things, it is still similar with HNNKN in terms of boggling your mind.
Both anime are playing in little village . Both anime have psychodelic story
There are unexplained phenomenons, transfer students, shrine maidens and things that may not be all what they claim to be. In both anime story is about group of friends, who live in mysterious small town, which have a dark past.
“Everything seems so peaceful on the surface, while beneath something eerie is hiding.” [Masayuki]
Group made of kids (each of them with several issues and a trauma in their past) lives in a quiet, small, remote Japanese village surrounded by nature which actually hides some scary secrets.
Both are psychological, creepy, dark, mysterious, supernatural, and addicting to the max, and both screw with your brain (and you love it).
Also, in both we have: a dam, a school, at least 1 transfer student, a young, cute, purple-eyed miko, and a scary, ugly, hateful grandmother.
Main differences: Ghost Hound doesn’t have neither gore and comedy, and is way slower than
A seemingly normal town with deep-rooted dark secrets that are related somehow to a dam, girls in shrine maiden outfits, students with crazy mental-illnesses, and sometimes disturbing imagery.
All of these are things these shows have in common.
Same feeling, same dark atmosphere. Both anime involves certain religion, contruction Dam, and bunch of kids in isolated town
Same mystery in a small country village setting.
Group of students with a dark past in a remote village which hide some dark secrets.
Very psychological and mysterious with supernatural elements.
Same type of isolated village mystery and atmospheric horror.
A small town, a mysterious event in the past, a girl with spiritual connections, a powerful family with an old and powerful matriarch, a dam, a reporter, and a sexy woman. I could go on with small, minor things that make Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Shinreigari: Ghost Hound similar, but every second you waste reading this is a second not enjoying these great horror series!
