Anime comes in many shapes and sizes; you’ve got Studio Ghibli at the top of the food chain, thanks to classics like Spirited Away or My Neighbour Totoro. There are kid’s adventure shows like Pokemon, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Dragon Ball, and then there’s the grown-up stuff like Ghost In The Shell or Attack On Titan.
There’s something for everyone basically, but anime is also home to some of the sickest, goriest death scenes in any medium. Bodies explode, get ripped to shreds or twisted in ways God didn’t intend, and the animators don’t spare the red ink when it comes to depicting these nightmarish moments.
Most of these scenes are for pure shock value, but a couple manage to sneak a point across with the violence too. Excessive as they might be it's kind of fun to see how far they’ll push the limits, so here we’ll take a look at the most gruesome deaths anime has to offer.
Just be sure to have a barf bag ready; it may come in handy.
