Tokyo Ghoul | Don’t miss this twisted horror anime that has become a hit with fans. Ken Kaneki is a loner. In a world where ghouls — human-like creatures who survive on human flesh — and people are at war, his biggest concern is which novel to pick up next. But when a date with the mysterious Rize turns deadly, a life-saving operation horrifyingly transforms him into a human-ghoul hybrid. Can he find his place in a society where it’s hunt or be hunted?

Higurashi: When They Cry – GOU | One of the most anticipated new series this fall, a reimagining of one of the most famous cult-classic horror anime and Japanese horror video games with modernized animation for 2020! New kid Keiichi Maebara is settling into his new home of peaceful Hinamizawa village. Making quick friends with the girls from his school, he’s arrived in time for the big festival of the year. But something about this isolated town seems “off,” and his feelings of dread continue to grow. With a gnawing fear that he’s right, what dark secrets could this small community be hiding?

HELLSING ULTIMATE | The series, based on the popular manga, features Arucard, a true anti-hero character who taunts his enemies before destroying them. The rogue vampire Arucard is the Hellsing Organization’s deadliest instrument in its mission to protect the British Empire from satanic ghouls and Nazi freaks. With recently-turned policewoman Seras Victoria as his servant, Arucard haunts the shadows as a sinister force of good — and tonight the foggy streets of England shall flow with blood.

DEADMAN WONDERLAND | “Gory, explicitly violent, frequently over-the-top, and viscerally cruel” is how Anime News Network describes this series. Ganta is convicted of slaughtering his classmates — a crime he didn’t commit. The authorities lock him up in a brutal, privately owned prison: Deadman Wonderland, where the incarcerated are forced to fight gladiatorial battles for tourists.
