Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Highschool of the Dead Recommendations
While Higurashi no naku koro ni is a lot more Mystery and about mysterious murders, both of them contain a lot of gore.
Both about students and making big changes, changing your attitude towards things. They both have similar artwork and are both quite gory, although HOTD is more gory.
They both are gory. Psychotic people are also included in both.
the both are gore and both got really good history
watching Highschool of the Dead reminds me of Higurashi--albeit with a lot of ecchi. this series really holds nothing back, as far as the violence goes. Higurashi is the same in that it captures the expressions of the characters really well. if you liked one, chances are you'll like the other
