These supernatural anime will freak you out - in a good way.
Don’t be scared – the supernatural doesn’t always have to be so spooky. Sometimes, the supernatural can make you ponder the big questions of life and leave you feeling awfully confused.
Today, I offer 8 anime that in some way feature the supernatural – whether it be ghosts, ghouls, or gods, demons, spirits, or monsters, or just plain old paranormal powers. These anime will present puzzles that perplex the mind and make you ask a lot of questions with no answers, and you'll love every minute of it. Enjoy!
Mushi-shi breathes the strange and unexpected back into the supernatural. Instead of demons, ghouls or ghosts, Mushi-shi features a host of mythical, otherworldly creatures called Mushi (think bugs and bacteria) that unwittingly wreak havoc in the human realm. It’s up to Ginko, a mushi master, to aid those afflicted by the paranormal phenomena they induce.
Mushi-shi embodies the true spirit of the supernatural genre– eerie, sublime, and full of mystical wonder. Mushi-shi is one of my favorite animes ever. But be prepared: each episode of Mushi-shi poses questions that will leave you feeling profoundly puzzled long after the credits roll.
