spooky anime

Good anime to watch on Halloween:

Vampire Hunter D – Classic movie about a half-vampire vampire hunter with a creepy left hand, there’s also a more recent movie (Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust).

Hellsing – Dark and gothic tale of a vampire vampire killer, Alucard who works for the mysterious Hellsing Organization.

Boogiepop Phantom, I haven’t seen this but it seems like this series would make for appropriate Halloween viewing.

Kiki’s Delivery Service – Something for the kids! This is a Hayao Miyazaki movie about a young witch who moves to a small town and starts a delivery service aided by her flying broom.

Perfect Blue, a dark psychological thriller about a pop idol.

Witch Hunter Robin – This series reminded me of X-Files a bit. A young girl named Robin is set to join a witch hunting organization called STN-J that has just lost a member. Robin can control fire, and her new teammates are immediately suspicious of her. The STN-J team tracks and captures out of control witches, but there is an undercurrent of conspiracy — things might not be what they seem!

X/1999
– I’d recommend the tv series instead of the movie, which is incoherent. The ultimate battle between good and evil begins as Kamui must fight his old friend Fuma to determine if the world will be saved or destroyed.
