I love psychological thrillers. I think they are very entertaining, especially for the spooky season. So, I put together my top 5 psychological-thriller Anime:
- A young maned Koichi Sakakibara, transfers to a new school where he finds himself drawn into a mystery involving a mysterious girl and a series of gruesome deaths.
2. Psycho Pass
- Believing in humanity and order, police woman Akne Tsunemori obeys the ruling, computerized, precognitive Sibyl system. But when she faces a criminal mastermind who can elude this “perfect” system, she questions both Sibyl and herself.
3. High School of the Dead
- High school students are overwhelmed with the start of the Zombie apocalypse.
4. Danganronpa The Animation
- A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you’ll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it.
5. Serial Experiments Lain
