Synopsis

Nine students gather in their high school at night to bid farewell to a friend. As is customary among many high school students, they perform a sort of ritual for them to remain friends forever, using small paper charms shaped like dolls.

However, the students do not realize that these charms are connected to Heavenly Host Academy—an elementary school that was destroyed years ago after a series of gruesome murders took place, a school that rests under the foundation of their very own Kisaragi Academy. Now, trapped in an alternate dimension with vengeful ghosts of the past, the students must work together to escape—or join the spirits of the damned forever.

A feast for mystery fanatics, gore-hounds, and horror fans alike, Corpse Party: Tortured Souls – Bougyakusareta Tamashii no Jukyou shows a sobering look at redemption, sacrifice, and how the past is always right behind, sometimes a little too close for comfort.

Review

Corpse party is notoriously one of the most gory shows out there, the only problem for me is that I didn’t really find it gory at all, but I never find anime gory so if you like that sort of thing you know where to go (here). It was more gory but I was able to keep my distance away from the show enough to not feel anything when tongues were cut off and e.c.t.

The plot of this show is fairly bad really and I think the show relies on gore to side-track the reader from the pretty bad plot going on in the background. We constantly transition between characters and you don’t really remember who anyone is at all and the plot is just walking around an abandoned building trying to escape.

I’d recommend it for Halloween or for a fun late night marathon but not as a general rule, this is definitely worth checking out if you get creeped out by gore easily as it’s horror will be a lot more effective for you.

  1. I started this but wasn’t really drawn in and still haven’t finished it. I didn’t drop it, I just stopped watching. It is a shame, because I love horror (usually even bad horror) but I just didn’t find any real hook in this or anything to make me care what happens next in the story.

    • Yeah it’s mainly just something gory, but I didn’t think it was gory and more boring anyway so it didn’t have much to offer, I can’t blame you really I only watched it because it was Halloween at the time. I like watching horror shows at Halloween and no other time of the year, though I don’t like a lot of horror. I think I might read Junji Ito instead with scary music in the background or something.
