And yet another one...Horror anime...

Hhm after a 2 month long pause,well 2 posts in a row so far are kind of...well fast.This post is all about horror anime.Basically  I will make mini review's of 4 horror anime.

1)Another:
Another is an anime about a class of middle school students.The students themselves are as normal as middle schoolers can be,but...Their class is under a horrible 26 year old curse which caused the deaths of hundreds of previous students of their class.
To be honest this might as well be the best horror anime out there right now.It has a thrilling story with a final plot twist nobody ever expected.
The visuals are some of the best I have ever seen.They are very realistic,and they fit the overall atmosphere of the story like a glove.Will they find a way to remove the curse?
The voice acting was exactly like it should have been for a horror anime.Perhaps the weakest link in the series was the opening song.The song is not bad but it just did not fit into the series.

2)Cossette no Shouzou:
It is a story about art student Eiri Kurahashi who met the ghost of Cossette.A young girl who was murdered in the 18th century.Later it is revealed that he fell in love with Cossette and that he is the reincarnation of her murderer.Will eiri be able to erase the sins of his predecessors?
Cossette no shouzou is a great horror / romance anime.The main romance is between Cossette and Eiri.The visuals  and the sound were certainly good but they were not the highlight of the series.

3)Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi:
Hmm how to start this one...Basically there is this invisible tree called Yggdrasil,the tree of all life.When women eat its fruit they become immortal.When men eat it they get super strength but loose their mind,and they are the only ones able to kill the immortal women.Is immortality a too long time to live?
Immortals are an excuse for well...lots of blood and gore.The best thing about this anime is that it is one of those horror stories that have a private detective twist.
I remember I loved the visuals.

4)Hellsing Ultimate
A story about the vampire Alucard,vampire hunters and a war against nazi vampires.A bloody war with millions of dead people.Can the war be stopped?
An intense action/horror story about vampires.It has great raw visuals befitting of a horror story.As for voice casting,it has probably the best voice cast I have ever heard(including Norio Wakamoto and Jouji Nakata in the Japanese version and Crispin Freeman in the english version).
